"No man's sky is an exploration and survival game set in an infinite procedurally generated universe. Whether a distant mountain or a planet hanging low on the horizon, you can go forth there. You can fly seamlessly from the surface of a planet to another, and every star in the sky is a sun that you can visit. Where you'll go and how fast you'll make you way through this universe is your decision. Explore uncharted solar systems and catalog unique new forms of life. Every planet's landscape is different from the next and populated by species never before encountered. Acquire ancient artifacts that may reveal the secrets behind the universe. Choose whether to share your discoveries with other players. You won't see them, but they're exploring the same universe in parallel; perhaps you'll make your mark on their worlds as well as your own. Every solar system, planet, ocean and cave is filled with danger, and - make no mistake - you are vulnerable. Your ship and suit are fragile, and every encounter may test your skills to the limit. From dog-fighting in space to first-person combat on a planet's surface, you will face foes ready to overwhelm you. One mistake could see you lose it all. In No man's sky, every victory and every defeat is permanent. The voyage that stands before you cannot be taken lightly. You must prepare. Collect precious resources on the surfaces of planets and trade them for the ships, suits and equipment that will take you to your destiny in the stars"--from www.metacritic.com.

I don't understand... Why do people dislike this game so much? I find it's a really fun future space adventure game full of new things to discover. The graphics are good and all the different resources and planets are amazing. I really enjoyed playing this game and I find other people should too. The only problem is that the planets sometimes become a bit repetitive but it's still a very diverse and fun game.

Updates have made it much better than at release, but it is still a very thin game. The variety and diversity of the worlds is very lacking. Game play is very repetitive, and minor frustrations make exploring less fun than it could be.

Very disappointing game. I had hopes for it but it is dull and uninspiring.

This is the most disappointing game OF THE YEAR. When this was first announced, we were told that this game would be an open world space exploration planet. Basically, this was suppost to be a kind of Minecraft 2.0. Instead we got some boring grinding on the same planet. Sure there are 14 quintillion planets or something, but that doesn't mean 14 quintillion things to do. The planets look good though and the graphics are decent but that's just about every pro there is about this game. 2 out of 5 for this.

Really boring. What's so fun about flying a darn space ship to kingdom come.

Worlds are 100 km wide and 10m deep. The game is full of grinding.

Same grind on nearly every planet, the procedural algorithm just changes the colour and textures on the barren landscapes.

You only have 12 inventory slots and your ship has 15, making collecting [the only interactive part of the game] really limited.
