I really was just in awe of this game at first. I started it up with a friend and we both spent a few hours on our first planet, describing everything we saw, and all that. He got bored really quick but I was in love, let me tell you. Anyway he got off and hasn't played it since. I kept going. I've put maybe 30-40 hours into this game, so really I got my $60 worth. However, as another person mentioned here, it was all solely for that space fantasy. In reality this game has no depth. There is no weapon for mining or combat. It amounts to how many slots does it have and how cool does it look. With 15 slots you can make it so your gun is fast at mining and equally as good at killing sentinels. It is the very same for ships. You find one you think looks cool, mine rare resources(not exactly rare either, I found emeril or gold or both on every planet I've been to) if you have to in order to buy it then there you go. All ships go the same speed, can be upgraded quite easily to have the same specs, and with all suit upgrades will only be hauling titanium to refill health and maybe some thamium for your pulse jet. There is really no reason to keep anything worth any value in your ship. Space combat is fun but you can't take part in huge battles like they said. I achieved every suit upgrade and a badass ship in 10 hours I'd say. The only real reason to leave one planet for the next is a change of scenery. Most of the life you find is fairly diverse but they're only there to look at really. They don't do anything special. Just kind of run around. You can feed them? Currently I'm just hot-footing it to the center so I can say I've "beaten the game" and be done with it. Overall it is the most disappointing game I've ever played. I watched this game very closely up until it's release, and it was all pie in the sky from Sean Murray. There is NO MULTIPLAYER, not "oh if you manage to meet up with someone" forget that too, it is simply not there. There are no specific classes of ships, there are only 3 alien races(What?!) and your interactions with them are pathetic. I had full affinity with the vy'keen race within the first hour. I don't hate this game, but Hello games do not deserve all of this praise, and Sean Murray is essentially the new Peter Molyneux. I'll just put it this way, and given the price of the game and the funding it received I think the comparison is fair - If EA or Ubisoft or any other big company released this game, we would be bashing them to no end.
ive always said that if it gets a 5 from x-play it must be worth it(if its a game ive been lookin at)
but when it comes to franchises i regularly like i dnt even look for reviews im buying the next innstallment regardless
e.g i bought silent hill:homecoming...and i loved it!(same goes for re5
