Elite Dangerous: Odyssey is an ambitious addition to the Elite formula that doesn't quite hit the highs it should. It instead serves as a preview of what the game may be like in 6 or 12 months from now, and is hard to recommend as it currently is. Personally? I'd wait and see how Frontier Developments improves the game. Let's face it, there's still plenty to explore in Horizons.

Elite Dangerous: Odyssey is an unfinished expansion with some cool ideas in need of a lot of additional iteration and work. As it currently stands the Elite Dangerous PC community is beta testing Odyssey for the inevitable console launch, despite the expansion being advertised as a finished product. Unless they don't mind paying to play in a glorified beta, commanders should stick with Horizons until the dust settles.

‎Elite Dangerous: Odyssey is an expansion to consider for veterans and new players, this being an ideal complement. However, although he has a long way to go due to his considerable lack of content and his poor performance despite having a team more than enough to play in the highest quality. Still, the expansion takes a big leap forward, with new mechanics and ways to explore the galaxy in which we live in a faithful 1:1 scale recreation.‎

A great base to build from for the future but in its current state it's hard to recommend until Frontier gets in front of the performance issues and bugs that plague Odyssey right now.
