    While the original release of KSP for consoles was a buggy mess, the new enhanced edition is a full blown masterpiece of a game. If you have ever wanted to become a rocket scientist then this is the game for you. With a huge variety of options, whatever spaceship you can imagine, you can build. The new control scheme is perfect for every kind of player.

    Kerbal Space Program is a game that makes you feel dumb before it makes you feel smart. That is its appeal. There are some issues with its presentation on console, but if you want to feel smart and have the time to learn (and don't mind the annoying controls and menus), this is the game.

    For those who love hyper-detailed simulators, Kerbal Space Program has that in spades, and for that alone, Kerbal Space Program deserves high marks. In my experience, though, that audience is far more prevalent on PC, which makes it disappointing to see that the console specific Enhanced Edition still feels like a poor console port of a heavily PC-based title.

    If you are extremely patient, then Kerbal Space Program Enhanced Edition has a deep and rewarding game to offer you. But that patience isn't just tested in the tutorial or painstakingly crawling your way over the steep learning curve. It will be tested throughout your entire experience with the pacing, bugs, and even control scheme itself. Kerbal Space Program is a fantastic and unique gaming experience, and it's a valiant effort to bring this to consoles that rarely even attempt games this outside the box, but ultimately it always feels like a port, and one that would simply be better enjoyed with a mouse and keyboard. If that's not an option, there is an opportunity here to get a taste of one of the ways the PC gaming community stays weird, but be prepared to spend a long time chewing on it before you'll enjoy that taste.

    Whatever direction can you go, I can say this: It’s less expensive than Space Camp. Go get yourself one of those freeze-dried ice cream bars, strap a Kerbal or two to some rockets, and call it good.

    Kerbal Space Program is a fascinating educational tool. There's a childlike joy to be had in experimenting with your space-faring efforts. You'll find it hard to appreciate that on PS4 though, as this version is a mess on multiple levels. A genuinely good game is spoiled by a terrible port.

    It's such a shame that Kerbal Space Program is so shoddily ported, because underneath its buggy, messy experience lies a fantastically detailed game with plenty for science nerds. The career mode offers replayability and near-endless depth, while the tutorials are hugely helpful in bringing new people into the complex clutches of physics, but its plethora of bugs and some huge design oversights make it very hard to recommend. The gameplay itself shoots for the stars, but its technical problems bring it crashing back down.

First of all we must say that it is a fairly complex game since the applied physics are very real and if you add to that its control and playability makes this game not for all audiences, but if you still like it the challenges and you love the world of space this game will like you. It really is like any other game in the aspect of controls and is that once you know how to play and learn the controls, they will not forget you and you will be able to play for many hours with lots of pleasure and fun.

    If I had to say the genre of the game, it would undoubtedly be a simulation, since we will have to build our own spaceship or rocket and make trips through space, either to accomplish missions very similar to those that NASA could fulfill, such as discovering new planets, conditions of habitability and even combats.

The game looks nice, but the controls can be frustrating. It also takes quite a bit of knowledge of physics that the game does a horrible job of teaching you so you will depend a lot of the expansive online community that is mostly dedicated to the PC version of the game If you are okay with the learning curve tho this game can be a lot of fun. The fun of a successful launch and mission after failure is exciting and fun and can't be discounted. Expand

    update after the new dlc on consoles: great job, but i dont't know why you guys don't give us the language packs too.

    The new control options were most welcome.
    In the first version for the PS4, I actually left the game due to bugs and difficulty in controls.
    This enhanced version I can't stop playing.

    I'm waiting for new versions until it stays the same as the PC.

    Suggestions for fixes / improvements:

    - When we are close to the limit of saves, the game tends to slow or crash.
    - Need to improve the save / load window, it is unnecessarily slow loading the saves list.
    - Since the last patch there is a loading when you make the revert to launch or VAB that did not exist in the release version.
    -Sometimes when I make a fast-forward on track-station, and I visit a different object than I was before entering the track-station, the time comes back before fast-forward when I return to the track-station of this second object. Ex: ship at dune -> track-station -> fast-forward some months -> base at minus -> track-station and orbits is before last fast-forward, so I repeat the process and I can continue.

    Great work !

I really enjoy it. Exploration, creativity, problem solving, it really lets you do a lot of things as you build rockets, planes, rovers, submarines, and space crafts to try and reach different planets and moons in the Kerbal system.

    Unfortunately, the support is horrific. The patches are few and far between. Many times breaking more than what was fixed. From the dawn of the game's original release on consoles it was a very dark time. After your save file reached a certain size the save was corrupted. Eventually the current Enhanced Edition was released, and it was a whole new wor. . . solar system.

    In the game's current state for PS4 at least it is unplayable. I am unable to speak to the stat of the XBox version. When the game is working it is wonderful. Picturesque backdrops for your crafts while in space. But, as you try to complete missions a number of strange new bugs have cropped up completely ruining the experience.

    It pains me to say this, as I really enjoy the game when its working. But, stay away from KSP Enhanced Edition until this new fleet of bugs has been addressed.

    Early Access on PS4? Perfect concept and barely playable game. Lot of bugs, impassable missions, terrible game controls, etc.
