Kerbal Space Program is a deep, funny, and detailed physics sim that never takes itself too seriously.

A perfect blend of science and slapstick, and a robust and compelling sandbox of possibility. Simply outstanding.

An inspired mix of real science, sandbox gameplay, and space simulation – that is both a lot more entertaining and a lot more accessible than you'd expect.

Kerbal Space Program is one of the most educational games I have played in years. While I'm nowhere equipped to apply for the ESA or NASA Kerbal Space Program does make understanding the science of space travel easier to digest. It is a complicated game but offers a real sense of achievement when you get something right. There are a couple of issues when it comes to the actual user experience, like the movement of non fixed cameras and text sizes, but even if you have just a small interest in Space travel then this is recommended.

Kerbal Space Program is a rare game, an unbelievably good simulator that unfortunately suffers from a being a fairly poor port from PC to console.

While the extremely high level of difficulty at the start can be daunting for newcomers, the level of detail and realism mixed into the building and flying segments make it well worth the time spent learning in Kerbal Space Program.

In Kerbal Space Program, we have a perfect game of experimentation. Checking to see what goes wrong and correcting your next trial accordingly. When struggling with my first launches and landings, and the tricky controls, I was close to believing it was a game of impossible luck. But it is so far from that as to make the initial belief laughable. Instead, it is about accruing and applying small units of knowledge, one on top of the other.

One thing should be noted: you will fail, and then fail some more.

Kerbal Space Program is just that, a program concerning space and the computations of getting a craft in space and making the trip alive. There is plenty of room for human error and it can also be a bit trial by error, but if it's a genre that players can appreciate or get into, there isn't anything quite like it on consoles. That said, it's a tough to learn, it's rough around the edges, and there isn't really an easy way to get accustomed to the game even with the tutorials. Recommend only for the most hardcore of space simulation fans and patience is a must.

"Kerbal" is best appreciated as a space for lingering contemplation spread across three radically different dimensions of experience — the theoretical, cinematic, and subjective. Like space travel itself, the deeper one goes, the greater the sense of smallness, creating a burgeoning humility for how much is still undiscovered.

This game simply should have stayed on PC. With its confusing control scheme and burdensome cursor navigation, it was never destined for consoles. I imagine that the game's success on PC made it a pretty safe bet to make some money on consoles (and I'm sure that with the initial $40 price it did just that), but it simply doesn't port well.

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.

Kerbal Space Program isn't just a fantastic space game. It's one of those games that makes you glad you play on PC, because it could only come to exist on PC.
