  • Summary: Inspired by the adventure and imagination that we love from classic science-fiction, No Man's Sky presents you with a galaxy to explore, filled with unique planets and lifeforms, and constant danger and action. In No Man's Sky, every star is the light of a distant sun, each orbited byInspired by the adventure and imagination that we love from classic science-fiction, No Man's Sky presents you with a galaxy to explore, filled with unique planets and lifeforms, and constant danger and action. In No Man's Sky, every star is the light of a distant sun, each orbited by planets filled with life, and you can go to any of them you choose. Fly smoothly from deep space to planetary surfaces, with no loading screens, and no limits. In this infinite procedurally generated universe, you'll discover places and creatures that no other players have seen before - and perhaps never will again.

    Embark on an epic voyage
    At the centre of the galaxy lies a irresistible pulse which draws you on a journey towards it to learn the true nature of the cosmos. But, facing hostile creatures and fierce pirates, you'll know that death comes at a cost, and survival will be down to the choices you make over how you upgrade your ship, your weapon and suit.

    Find your own destiny
    Your voyage through No Man's Sky is up to you. Will you be a fighter, preying on the weak and taking their riches, or taking out pirates for their bounties? Power is yours if you upgrade your ship for speed and weaponry.
    Or a trader? Find rich resources on forgotten worlds and exploit them for the highest prices. Invest in more cargo space and you'll reap huge rewards.
    Or perhaps an explorer? Go beyond the known frontier and discover places and things that no one has ever seen before. Upgrade your engines to jump ever farther, and strengthen your suit for survival in toxic environments that would kill the unwary.

    Share your journey
    The galaxy is a living, breathing place. Trade convoys travel between stars, factions vie for territory, pirates hunt the unwary, and the police are ever watching. Every other player lives in the same galaxy, and you can choose to share your discoveries with them on a map that spans known space. Perhaps you will see the results of their actions as well as your own...

    An astounding achievement. Hello Games deserve credit for creating one of the best games of this console generation - even if it did take a couple of years longer than planned.

    Don’t be guided by the game’s daunting history. No Man’s Sky is now a near-outstanding experience that sits in a league of its own. Despite some issues with the game’s textures, delayed rendering and some unstable framerates, No Man’s Sky is a diverse, deep and ambitious player-shaped adventure that’s constantly intriguing.

    Finally available on Xbox One, during the last two years No Man's Sky has become a huge exploration game, still flawed by technical and design problems, but totally worth a ride.

    While features like multiplayer and base-building certainly put more proverbial asses in seats, they're also the least memorable additions to an otherwise thoughtful experience.

    Wonderful for exploration but has some issues with resource management. [Oct 2018, p.75]

    Two years after its initial release, No Man’s Sky have developed into a whole different game. Tons of new content, several updates and patches for the online section, more features for crafting system, new missions, and many, many more added features have made NMS a valuable title.

    Technically, No Man’s Sky delivers the idea Hello Games promised — a massive sci-fi playground for you to explore. However, once you’ve spent some time poking around, it’s hard not to notice that the playground feels fairly empty, even two years later and after massive content additions.

    Wow Well done Sean and the team. You may have just saved No Mans Sky.

    Like playing a new game. I played this on PS4 and PC and I must say I'm blown away by the amount of content and changes that have taken place.

    The systems in place are a lot less frustrating and flow well. Multiplayer is a fantastic experience, you can just jump in with a mate at any time and come and go as you both please.

    Graphics have also been vastly improved and also atmospheres and weather add a great sense of living environment.

    I would say this is a strong 9. The reason I gave it a 10 is that let's give credit where its due here. To have come back from the trainwreck launch and add all this with no charge to existing owners is a GOOD thing.

    Beware of reviews from the old version of the game!!

    The game on launch 2 years ago was rocky, to say the least. It a put of people of people off from trying the game since.

    Which is a shame, as the subsequent updates added a lot to the game, and refined much of the gameplay.

    Now the 'NEXT' update has landed, the biggest one yet, it overhauls a lot of gameplay that people weren't happy with, and adds a ton of new and awesome content.

    One of the best games I've played!

    no man's sky is a complicated case, it was released missing many things that were promised and that are now in the game, but even if the gameno man's sky is a complicated case, it was released missing many things that were promised and that are now in the game, but even if the game is much better now it doesn’t mean it’s a great game, its focus is on collecting resources that make it a bit repetitive and boring.

    Still boring as. Don't understand the sudden praise, it's still a large, empty game with nothing to do.
