If you’re a gamer you almost definitely heard of the well anticipated game titled No Man’s Sky, but if you didn’t already purchase it, make sure you read this first.  No Man’s Sky was definitely one of the most hyped games of the year, but like me and few other gamers knew it wasn’t going to meet it’s expectations.  Sean Murray, the creator of No Man’s Sky showed us what could possibly be game of the year, but what we got was far from it.  What angers players most is that he lied about what was going to be in the game, but still thought it was worth $60.  A game no better than Minecraft worth $60?

Sean Murray said that the day and night cycle was going to work with actual suns and not a light box, but what did we get?  A light box.  He also said that every player was going to get their own randomly generated ship when they start out, but everyone has that plain red ship.  Landing on asteroids was another promised feature that has yet to be added in the game, even though it seems pointless we were still promised it.  Hacking doors was something we were promised and yet it was not added in the final product.  Also planets with rings around them were promised and definitely would make the game a lot more realistic, but not there.

My first hour in No Man’s Sky was plain boring, all you do is gather resources then fly to another planet and do the same thing.  And all the random creatures generated looked slightly different but still looked pretty similar.  It’s not a terrible game, it’s just not for everyone.  If you just like exploring randomly generated worlds then this is the game for you, but that’s pretty much all you can do aside from space battles which aren’t very fun at all.  What do you think of No Man’s Sky?  Let us know in the comments, and well see you next time on the Gaming Core!
