YOUR UNIVERSE AWAITS
Explore a universe of possibilities
With over 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 (18 quintillion) possible planets, No Man’s Sky's procedurally generated galaxy gives players an unparalleled opportunity to explore worlds that no one has ever visited before. Exploration is entirely seamless, with no loading screens, whether you're flying from space to a planet's surface or even warping between solar systems.
Share your discoveries
Everyone starts No Man’s Sky on the outer rim of the same unexplored galaxy. As you progress, you will come across countless undiscovered solar systems, planets, lifeforms and much more. You can choose to share your discoveries with other players, naming them and adding them to the Galactic Map, forever associated with your PSN ID. You may also share the amazing sights you encounter using the PlayStation 4 system’s share functions.
Space combat on a grand scale
Make enemies and forge alliances by joining battles between the factions that occupy the galaxy. Take part in daring raids on trade convoys and audacious attacks on capital ships, claim bounties, and upgrade your weaponry. But be warned: helping one faction may make its enemies yours, too.
EMBARK ON AN EPIC JOURNEY ACROSS AN INFINITE UNIVERSE
Trade your way through the galaxy
Violence is not the only route to success. Discovering rare resources and trading them where they are most valuable will help you amass a fortune you can exchange for upgrades and ships that can carry ever more cargo. The rewards will be great, but you'll run the risk of attracting the attention of ruthless space pirates.
Prepare yourself for exploration
By upgrading your engines, you can travel further and faster, pushing at the frontiers of the known galaxy. Upgrading your suit will help protect you from radiation and extreme environments that would kill the unprepared.
Discover a social galaxy
The galaxy is a living, breathing place, with trade convoys travelling between stars, pirates, police and military ships ever ready for action, and planets teeming with life. The same galaxy is also shared by every player of No Man's Sky. Perhaps you will see the results of their actions, as well as your own?

Cons: Not the same game advertised at E3. There's also some occasional bugs here and there.
Note: As more content is being added, I predict it will be close to what was shown at E3.
This game is big and beautiful. You'll see some scenery that will just blow you away.
You get to feel the expanse and emptiness of space. The feeling that you're the first to ever explore something is truly fun. It's the main thing driving you to play the game.
Well, there's not a lot to it. After visiting a few planets you realize that most of the assets are the same, just rendered with a slightly different color. Other than the wonder of exploration, there's nothing really driving you forward. There are some really loose story lines, but they're not engaging enough to make you want to pursue them.
Inventory management is frustrating. You spend most of your time mining materials to keep your ship and suit working so you can mine more materials to keep your ship and suit running. This leads to an infuriating inventory problem as inventory slots are very few.
NPC interaction is boring. Sure there are NPCs to interact with, but you can't understand them most of the time, and what they have to say isn't all that exciting any way.
Overall: This game is okay, and it's only the beginning. Hopefully Hello Games adds a lot more content to this title in the future.
I love the landscapes. Had fun mining to purchase my first ship upgrade and then finding the perfect wrecked ship for upgrading.
At first I thought that there was some intrigue with the Atlas clues, but it's just low level repetitive stuff that doesn't seem to lead to anything but more of the same.
I didn't return it, as I think my young grandson will like this when he's old enough to read the dialogue.
The thing this game does well is making you feel like an explorer of a vast, but not very varied, universe. It is frequently very pretty, and occasionally stunning. I like aimlessly meandering around in games enough to enjoy this, so I give it a solid 3 stars. Buy this game in a year, and I'm sure you'll be more satisfied with it overall.
The game's concept of being able to traverse a nearly infinite galaxy seamlessly is brilliant and practically unprecedented. The first time you explore an uncharted planet, fly out of the atmosphere into space, warp to another system, go through a black hole, see a bizarre space god, etc. is amazing. This is when the game truly shines. However, after about 20-25 hours of exploring, you realize you've seen nearly everything the game has to offer. And you repeat these same things over and over in the exact same ways.
The practical gameplay of NMS is not only bare bones but very poorly done. Exploring is hindered by a terrible inventory system. Mining/crafting is hindered by constant need to refill or manage. Ground combat is hindered by terribly simple yet finicky shooting. Space combat is hindered my poor maneuverability and no options other than your pew-pew cannon. Space exploration is hindered by a lack of variety in planets, aliens, etc. in a universe so vast.
Despite all the amazing scale and depth in a physical sense, the game is as shallow as budget titles from other indie titles priced at $20 or less.
This is not even mentioning the poor performance on both PS4 and especially PC. I play on PS4 and the game crashes on me like crazy. I've had it crash no less than 20 times in the past 3 days. I've also warped into environments I shouldnt be able to and gotten stuck, forcing me to reset my game.
You get the sense that Hello Games bit off way more than they could chew and as ambitious and as beautiful as the experience is, it dwindles into monotony and frustration quickly.
I can only recommend this game once the glitches and performance issues have been ironed out, and when the price drops to $30 or less. Or perhaps if and when an update adds a substantial amount of content (which they should soon).
