After initially launching to polarising reception, No Man’s Sky has finally reached a point where it has ‘mostly positive’ reviews on Steam.
Hello Games must be relieved today. As reported by Kotaku, after years of work and many free updates, their controversial space sim, No Man’s Sky, has won Steam over.
Positive reviews at last
There was a huge amount of hype for No Man’s Sky pre-release. However, this spiralled into bitter disappointment for many players when the game came out in August 2016. Some players revelled in the luxurious, vast depths of the beautifully designed universe. Others criticised No Man’s Sky for seeming empty and unfinished.
Steam was review-bombed, plaguing No Man’s Sky with a ‘mostly negative’ rating. Now, almost exactly five years later, fans finally seem satisfied. No Man’s Sky’s reviews on Steam have finally tipped the scale to ‘mostly positive’. Full credit to New Blood’s Dave Oshry who spotted this momentous occasion.
The turning point comes hot on the heels of the new Frontiers update, which gives players the option to discover, build and run an alien settlement. Frontiers is the 22nd update the game will have received. The latest update adds to the game’s established base-building feature, allowing players to carefully develop their own settlement, complete with citizens to get to know and protect as Overseer.
