    I woudn't call this a review. I see posts on reddit that are near the front page celebrating people getting refunds outside the normal "rules" of Steam's returns policy.

    I played the game for 12 hours so far which was split into 2 playthroughs. I started off as normal but on my first playthrough I redeemed the preorder bonus ship too early and never received the blueprint for the hyperdrive. That DID annoy me but accidents do happen, even in video games. I let it slide.

    Next playthrough I started fresh and even though I wasted all that time playing (about 8 hours) I still wasn't burnt out on it. I have stopped playing for the time being just to keep it fresh and I do have other games to finish.

    One reason I would consider a refund would be the price of it. For what it is and what you get from it I can't see $69 USD of entertainment. You could argue that has the potential for massive hours of gameplay but I wouldn't spend that long in this game with what is available to do.

    That's my opinion though and I would like to hear some more if anyone wants to share.


    meh, it was pretty boring... had no feeling to it... whats the point of getting to the center, I assume there just gonna be another planet or a blackhole to take me back to where I started... It's neat how they made the game tho...

    for me it was all about crafting the warp cells for about 12,743 times and I guess that's fun...

    Yep I thought the same, definitely really fun for a bit, but not worth the money. If it goes on sale I will purchase it again, as I got a refund.

    I was really excited to start it, but yeah, there's just nothing to it :slightly_sad: all just an algorithm to produce planets, but they're all the same to a certain extent. broke my poor nerdy heart

    I never played it I just watched some gameplay on Twitch and thought it seemed pretty boring. I usually watch streams before I buy a game and I just felt like I wouldn't want to play that game longer than a half hour.

    It still seems kinda cool but is really expensive

    At first I found the game to be really fun, but after 10 planets or so you start seeing the same things over and over :slightly_sad:
    Once I had an exosuit and multi-tool with the max slots, and a quite decent ship, I finished the Atlas-quest and started going for the center.
    From that point on it was already quite boring to me as every planet would pretty much be the same (warp->land->find ressources->warp->...).
    After I noticed that it would probably take too much time to warp to the center I watched a youtube video of what happens when you reach the center. This is when I stopped playing.

    Yeah, the game itself as idea is pretty freaking awesome, but playing it for a while without a real story...will give me the Minecraft feeling, where you just explore, build, collect that's it.

    Is it worth that money? No it's not.
    Do I see that the game would have future with Single Player feature? No.
    What could be better? The game should have a Multiplayer possibility to at least explore with your friends. And much more story or aliens to interact with.


    it was that bad, huh.

    Totally agree with you, but at least in Minecraft you can build something, in NMS it's only about collecting and exploring :eek:
    I agree that Multiplayer would be very important for this game, but I understand that it was probably too hard for the small team that Hello Games is.

    Boring, No purpose, No multiplayer.

    The core gameplay of mining gets dry and repetitive. The combat is lol. They skimped on world-building so the aliens and planets aren't as interesting as promised. Lastly, without a real plot or purpose, the game just becomes boring. Most humans need a purpose or objective to enjoy life.

    Never played the game, just watched other people play it on Twitch. Always wanted to try it, though.

    The one that did intrigue me was how the galaxy was developed "on-the-fly". That certainly has a lot of possibilities if they turned that into an engine and sold it to other software developers.

    Maybe I'l get it if the price drops during the holiday sales on Steam.

    There was so much hype behind this game I decided to wait for reviews to see if it was worth my time. And I mean at $60 you're competing with games like "The Witcher 3". And I have a hard time letting other AAA titles slide when comparing them to Witcher 3. Based on what I've seen I would've refunded that title so fast that the developers would've been bankrupt. If it was a $20 title? Looks like it would've been a great early access title.
