    Good With Potential To Be Great!

    I just wanted to add my 2p worth here!I have been following Elite:Dangerous since the Kickstarter days having backed it at a level that would give me access to premium beta. Having watched it evolve since then, with new... Read Full Review

    Elite: Tedious

    Look, I'll keep it short.Was really looking forward to this, but after the nice graphics and the novelty of flying spaceships about wears off (about 2 weeks if you're lucky), the whole boring fakery of the game will driv... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Elite: Dangerous

    Patience. Grinding. Pointlessness.

    The vastness of an entire galaxy means nothing if all there is to do are trivial missions and fetch quests. There is no exploration with a purpose. There is nothing interesting to see. There is very little to do.The NPCs... Read Full Review

    Crap

    Deadly boring game, but not because of principle, but because the creators concentrated on schematics and completely forgot gameplay. Fly, shoot, land, buy, sell. Again and again ... Deadly boring. BTW, for newcomer is t... Read Full Review

    Game of the Year, this year, last year, and likely next year.

    Because we live in a culture that throws large numbers around the way NFL players sadly do their "loved ones," we don't really process what it means to be inside a space sim experience replete with 400 billion star syste... Read Full Review

    If ever an experience that absolutely immersed you and made the hours melt away, it's this.

    Elite: Dangerous has been on my radar ever since its crowdfunding campaign in the days of yesteryear. After the blueballs of the PC release of Arkham Knight, I wasn't about to go for a third playthrough of Witcher 3, so... Read Full Review

    Almost great; instead...empty

    This could have been a great game. Unfortunately, the content is extremely lacking, and the player's ability to interact with the universe is barely noticeable at best. Frontier released an incomplete game, with promises... Read Full Review

    Best scifi game I have played.

    I have hoping for this game since I played Elite 2 when I was 13 years old. Exploring and landing on planets and taking in some of the amazing views was so awesome back then, that I still dream about them today. And whe... Read Full Review

    Just what I was looking for - "Immersion"

    This game is the real deal. The feel of immersion in space is incredible. Great soundtrack, great graphics. Awesome gameplay. The sense of discovery is phenomenal. It has all real life planets that exist in the milky wa... Read Full Review

    A breath of fresh air

    I play a lot of games and I've played them since the eighties. I don't write too much reviews and some games really deserved a review. I should have written one for those games but I didn't because I'm simply too lazy.Bu... Read Full Review

    One of the best space sims of 2014/2015

    First. Lets get the negative out of the way. The game or rather the vast universe is a bit dry. Any and all goings on will be shown in the common news updates in the station's UI. The news itself isn't very dramatic eit... Read Full Review
