    A great game but not the best port that we've seen due it's awful controls and the lack of modding on the console versions.

    Kerbal Space Program is a fantastic game but one that you should play on PC. I can forgive some of the control issues because of the limitations of the platform but we’ve seen other developers do intuitive controls for games designed initially for PC like Divinity: Original Sin and even Blizzard’s Diablo III. Imagine buying a great physics text book but only being able to read it while using oven mitts to turn the pages. That is Kerbal Space Program on PlayStation 4.

    On PS4, Kerbal Space Program is a lazy shoehorning of the PC title onto a console with next to no regard as to how it should look, play or control on that platform.

    I just landed on the Mun, but the game crashed and have to do it over again. Tried again, just left the atmosphere, but the game crashesI just landed on the Mun, but the game crashed and have to do it over again. Tried again, just left the atmosphere, but the game crashes again. Tried another go at it and almost made a full orbit around planet Kerbin but hey guess what? The game crashes AGAIN. But oh no on top of that all of my save files for KSP are now corrupted so now I have to start completely over. I can expect about half a dozen crashes in a single sitting of playing this "video game" And here I think its maybe my ps4 but all of my friends and many I have discussed the issue with on reddit and various gaming forums have experienced very similar if not the same exact issues. The game as of right now is literally unplayable. A broken piece of garbage being pawned off as something of any value whatsoever. Please for the love of all that is good in this world do not buy this piss poor attempt at a pc to console port. You would be wasting your money on alot of dissappointment. Full Review »

The controls can be a bit unwieldy at times, but you learn to overcome that pretty quickly; even the building aspect becomes second-nature after an hour or two.

    Which brings me to my negative review: it's difficult to play for more than an hour or two because the game crashes and corrupts all of your save files after a few hours. A complete wipe is catastrophic if you're trying to do anything more than orbit and (if you're lucky) land on the Mun. Space stations, satellites, science all get wiped. It is even more frustrating in career mode, which is effectively non-playable in its current iteration. An update fixing this issue would result in a 9/10 review from me, but I can't get behind this current version. Back to the PC for me.

Corrupted save files make the game unplayable, and the controls are ill-suited to a gamepad. I had moments of full-on childlike wonder playing KSP, and for astrophysics nerds this game has no equal, but this awful port of a great PC game is too unstable to play at length. I hope it gets patched, because a functional version of this game deserves a 9/10. I've had it a month now, and still no patch. Full Review »
