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.
When you get started, it's hard to put it down. It is fun. Flying around from planet to planet, discovering new things, new environments, etc is a lot of fun. There is astounding variety between worlds, and I strongly recommend leaving your ship somewhere, and travelling on foot as much as possible. Not only does this save some fuel (not really a big deal), but it adds a sense of danger and a challenge to an otherwise fairly danger-free game. Don't worry about losing your ship, you can find beacons that will summon your ship to you. If a storm comes, run for cover or use your mining tool to blast your way into a cave. Come across some super aggressive dinosaur-tiger things? Run as fast as you can, or jetpack to safety, or, try to fight them and the sentinels off. It's fun and intense. If you always just land your ship at a checkpoint, gather some things, and then explore a 50 yard radius from the ship, the game gets tiring very quickly.
But even if you do focus on exploring, the game can start to feel like work, and that was my biggest issue. Pretty quickly in the game, you ship will just be too small. You quickly fill it with resources and it just becomes a chore to find terminals or space stations to sell off everything, mine, sell, mine, sell, repeat forever. You can sort of exploit the stock market to make money a little faster, but still annoying. Eventually you'll have enough to buy a new ship, and you will, and you'll love it. For an hour or so. And then you'll need a bigger ship. And here is my biggest annoyance: When you buy a new ship, there is no way to trade in your old one for any money, and you also don't get to keep the old one. It's just gone, along with all the money you spent on it. Saved up $1M credits for a slightly larger ship? Well now you're starting over and will need $2M for the next one. It sucked the fun out of the game for me. It might not for you.
Exploring is a blast. But eventually if you want to upgrade to survive hostile attacks, intense environments, etc, and that's when No Man's Sky, for me anyway, started to feel like a second job, which is not what I want in a game.
The game is good for about 10 hours. Then you start to realize the shortfalls. The game is very repetitive. Mine. Craft. Sell.
The people you meet all look the same from 3 different models. The caves are the same. The planets all seem the same (they may have different environments but that's about it).
So far the big goal here is to get a ship (which they're all the same in the way they handle) that has enough slots to store the stuff you mine so you can sell it or craft it.
You pretty much need a guide to find items such as access passes that allow you to go to different areas to find other stuff to add to your inventor to sell or mine.
Given enough cash (from selling stuff that you mine) you pretty much complete this part of the game by buying bigger ships or more slots in your suit.
Like I said. After a while you will simply wonder what's the point and move on to something else.
Just a note. The developer of the game promises updates that will make the game more enjoyable. If you can find this at a bargain bin price. It may be worth it for the initial visuals and the promise that there's more to come.
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.
