    Astroneer is a limited but attractive survival game, a little colorful charm that shines in terms of crafting, vehicles, exploration and cooperative.

    Although there is no particular story or purpose to follow in Astroneer, a very deep gameplay along with entertaining multi-player and stunning visuals are enough to make it worth your time and money.

    Astroneer is a great adventure if you play it with someone, since playing it alone makes it quite simple and repetitive.

    Astroneer is simply another sandbox survival game, albeit enriched by several interesting features. Nothing new or surprising for genre fans to see.

    In short, Astroneer is a calming, vibrant, genuinely enjoyable experience until you start to set goals for yourself. At this point it becomes a bit of a chore and strays into frustrating grind territory that has no real guarantee of tangible results – and suddenly the buggy menu system, tangled controls, and lack of resources culminate in an inevitable fit of rage. Luckily, if you need a bit of post-anger stress relief, we have just the game for you… have you played Astroneer yet?

    Astroneer‘s a neat little game full of little quirks and things to discover, but near the end of my time with it I was definitely starting to burn out on the loop of creating equipment on one planet before blasting off into space, landing in new, harsher environment, and starting from scratch once more. Grab an Astropeer and a couple of Astrobeers and this title could easily provide a few evenings’ worth of entertainment. Beyond that, the numerous bugs and repetition of the core experience make it a less appealing prospect.

    Astroneer is a wonderful and accessible open world survival crafting game, where you land in a solar system and need to survive.

    The visuals are spectacular, I often find myself standing on the top of a mountain taking watching a sunset, or standing in my base listening to the hums and beeps of my modules whirring while I wait.

    The game has 6-7 distinct new planets, all with their own visuals and things to do, and the game now has an overarching "story" that pushes you from planet to planet while you try to understand these massive monolithic structures.

    This is an excellent indie title, and proof that developers can make early access games and release a solid product at the end.

    Pros: Incredible visuals, tactile UI, diverse solar system, multiplayer, new added goals that make me want to progress, free customization

    Cons: some annoying bugs and sub par performance in multiplayer. I fully anticipate them figuring this out ASAP though.

I played this game for like 60 hours and Im not bored at all. It haves bugs but the developers are working on it, they fixed so much of them and they are creating more content. Hope they wont stop doing the incredible game they are creating, hope they create another one and hope they have more score in metacritic, cause in one year, the game changed a lot. Expand

After moving to the 3rd planet, the game started having issues with character movement (getting stuck with walking animation with no walls, flattened terrain) and shaking interface. It is a gameplay breaking issue, and it's very disappointing, cuz up to this, the game was fine. I've been playing on PS4. NOT worth spending the money, unfortunately. It's sad because conceptually, and visually the game is really satisfying. Controls are broken though. Expand
