No Man's Sky 

 

I am thankful that Family Friendly Gaming purchased No Man’s Sky on the Playstation 4 for this review. I remember the claims at E3 2015 concerning this game. We could go and see all of these planets, and claim them as our own. There was this vast galaxy to explore. There was all of this diversity among the planets. It would be an endless epic exploration that was nearly endless. The final product does not match the companies claims.

No Man’s Sky is sadly a dull and boring experience where we get resources, refill technologies, and find new technologies. This is done to progress along a boring and linear storyline. We come across aliens and have to find knowledge cubes to learn their language. Please note you learn one word per knowledge cube. It can be a real pain to seek these knowledge cubes out too.

There is violence in No Man’s Sky. We can blow up things in space, and we can shoot things on the planets. I am unclear why these little robots are on all of these planets attacking me while I am trying to collect resources to progress the storyline. No Man’s Sky is also not very clear on what to do next. It might tell me to craft something, but I can’t find the resources. I then realize I need to follow a distress beacon to find an alien that just gives it to me.

The initial limits to the inventory are way too low. Especially for a game where exploration is the key. The long loading times only pay off when you finally get to explore. Crafting items is simple and easy. The menu screens and how to do things is not easy. The controls are very clunky. I loved having to refill the radiation suit, and my life support on some planets.

Early on I got lost in No Man’s Sky. I eventually found my way back to my ship. I learned that flying close to locations made much more sense. The bulk of my time in No Man’s Sky was collecting resources, and crafting items. I also noticed planets started looking the same really fast in No Man’s Sky. The lack of understanding the language and having to do so much to learn it was a major chore. If I knew nothing about the promises No Man’s Sky would be an average gaming experience.
