While this is a substantially improved experience, it is still No Man’s Sky. And while this is, more or less, No Man’s Sky as we were always promised it would be, the core conceit, structure, and gameplay loop haven’t changed. There’s just more to them than before.
Flying from planet to planet in search of the universe’s rarest materials and technologies in No Man’s Sky NEXT scratches an exploratory itch. It still carries a lot of caveats: It’s mechanically repetitive no matter what planet you’re on, the dull combat should be avoided whenever possible, and bugs are plentiful. But buying new ships and building new things is enough motivation to make it entrancing – for a while, at least.
No Man’s Sky has reached a point where not only does it meet initial promises, it now exceeds them. It is always a welcome sight to see a company to support a product after it’s launch, especially one with such a troubled one. What the game has always been successful at doing is creating moments of visual wonder and sense of scale of the universe. Now it does that even better and adds a whole bunch of functionality that makes getting around in that experience easier.
