I don't see what all the major hate for this game was about TBH. Sure they didn't come through with everything promised, & the PC port did have a rocky start performance wise. But IMHO it is a great game as it stands. I am fully immersed in it right now & they have definitely done some good improvements for PC & PS4 performance.
If they give us some of the stuff originally promised in the form of free updates & put out some really good paid DLC (we all know it's coming unfortunately) I think the game will have lived up to the hype as much as possible. NMS's hype was as crazy as anyone who truly thought it would live up to it.
All that said I do realize the game is pretty niche & is definitely not for everyone. Although if the game appeals to you in any way I personally think the game overcomes most of it's negatives & is worth a shot.
So I just put about 2 hrs in on this & thankfully I am having minimal issues running it. It does do some hitching & has FR drops for no apparent reason at times but once I got about 15 min in those became pretty few & far between. I haven't had any issues with the game crashing or anything that makes it unplayable.
The game itself is very fun so far IMO, but I can already tell this game is not for everyone. It is a straight up exploration/survival game with very little emphasis on action. Most creatures & aliens you run into on planets will leave you alone unless you go after them. I believe there are space pirates that attack you during space travel but I haven't ran into any of them yet.
So if you want an action packed experience I'd pass on NMS, but if you are interested in a laid back exploration game with a little survival thrown into the mix you really can't go wrong with this game IMHO. I know I'll be sinking a ton of time into it but YMMV depending on your tastes in games.
Well I've a bad day to say the least... But on the bright side I couldn't work today & will finally get to play some Blood & Wine. I'm very impressed with it so far but I just got a couple missions done, not very far on it at all. Time to change that!
