No Man’s Sky Launches…and the critics are out


It’s what happens when you’re one of the most anticipated games of 2016. Everyone expects everything, and well, things break, everything isn’t as “perfect” as everyone had hoped for, and a slew of harsh reviews roll in. No Man’s Sky – possibly the most hyped game of 2016 was released this week and as I said above, the expectations were high, and for many reviewers, the game fell short.


One glitch definitely got the most press as it could break the game for some users. Here are some of the articles hot off the press with initial reactions to No Man’s Sky:

As an optimist I actually like to look past some of these initial critics and if you do, you’ll find a lot of people that were absolutely enchanted by the game. Here’s a sampling from the other side of the fence:
