No Man's Sky, The Game With 18 Quintillion Planets, Has Finally Been Released. But How Are The Reviews?

No Man’s Sky is one of the most unique video games ever released. No Man’s Skys gameplay is built on four pillars—exploration, survival, combat and trading—in which players are free to perform within the entirety of a procedurally generated deterministic open universe, which includes over 18 quintillion (1.8×1019) planets.
No Man’s Sky’s open universe is unlike any ever seen before. According to the official website, whether it’s a distant mountain or a planet hanging low on the horizon, you can go there. You can fly seamlessly from the surface of one planet to another, and every star in the sky is a sun that you can visit. You can explore uncharted solar systems and catalogue unique new forms of life. Every planet’s landscape is different from the next and populated by species never before encountered. You can find ancient artefacts that could reveal the secrets behind the universe. You can choose whether to share your discoveries with other players. They’re exploring the same vast universe in parallel; perhaps you’ll make your mark on their worlds as well as your own.

No Man’s Sky Reviews

Consensus: No Man’s Sky, while grand in size and beautiful in look, can feel monotonous, and at times, overwhelming.

PolygonNo Man’s Sky isn’t the game I expected. ”
GamespotNo Man’s Sky is an impressive technical feat, but its enormity may come at a cost. What does it mean to be alive in a world where everything is driven by algorithms, and your existence is solitary?”
IGN: “Visual diversity is No Man’s Sky’s strong suit. Gameplay diversity might be its weak suit, though, because you do the same things in most of those places.”
Ars TechnicaNo Man’s Sky is both enormous and remarkably simple. Understanding that yin-yang is the first step to settling into the game’s mix of comfortable rhythms, bursts of excitement, and mounting tedium.
The Verge: “It’s really easy to get distracted in No Man’s Sky. While my goal is to get my ship running, so that I can start my long journey to the center of the universe, it’s actually a pretty monotonous thing.”

Business Insider: “The biggest PlayStation 4 game of the year is basically ‘Minecraft’ in space with 18 quintillion planets”
Metro: “In terms of scale No Man’s Sky is exactly what we hoped for, and in terms of its action it’s actually better than we expected. How well the structure and longevity of the game holds together will take us several days to find out, but we honestly can’t wait to get back to it and discover even more.”
Independent: “Already, my sense of wonder has been thoroughly tickled, the drive to discover new planets, new species, even learn new languages, is quite substantial. Hopefully, even without pointers, this will continue, but it really is hard to say at this stage. The only other game that compares to No Man’s Sky is Minecraft, but even then shared points are fleeting. So far, it really is like nothing else out there.”
