Critic Reviews for No Man's Sky

No Man’s Sky has sci-fi spectacle of strange new worlds on its side, but not much else. Its gameplay is underdeveloped and repetitive, and in my dozens of hours played it’s introduced very few new ideas to mix up its crafting, upgrades, combat, or universe. The promise of limitless exploration ended up working against it when I lost faith that it had any more meaningful things to show me no matter how far I traveled. This ambitious game reached for the stars, but its reach exceeded its grasp by light years.

Hello Games' lush galactic odyssey is a unique work of engineering art - and an engrossing, if flawed, game.

Relaxing exploration and some lovely scenery coupled with repetitive systems, frustrating menus, and a lack of real discovery.

A stunning technical achievement and a mesmerisingly addictive one, even after you realise how simplistic and repetitive it really is.

An inviting universe to explore and exploit, but not much story or gameplay backs up the unparalleled scope of the world

No Man's Sky is a massive machine with broken and missing parts, but dig deep enough and you'll be moved in ways you never expected.

No Man's Sky is an impressive set of tools grafted onto a game with very little going on.
