I know there is a lot of hate going around about No Man’s Sky. Here are my experiences (on PC). I have since stopped playing and have around 50 hours in game.
- A lot of people experienced performance issues. I did not and the game ran perfectly for me. This was supposedly fixed in the released PC patch.
- One issue I did experience was the game not saving properly. I lost about four hours of play time do to this.
- A lot of promised features are not in the game. This is quite true but I honestly think it is an ok game as it is (exception below)
- Huge exception: The is almost no story at all. I kept playing hoping to find out more about the three cultures and the sentinels. I spent most of my time trying to learn all the foreign words to find out more details. Unfortunately, you get very little and a ton of repetition. It is this that bothers me, by far, the most about this game.Semi Spoiler: Completing the Atlas line gets you a few mundane paragraphs of text. Going to the center of the galaxy gets you… nothing.
You always take risks when buying a game — especially if you preorder like I, and many others did. At this point, I wish I just got my 50 hours back!
