Do not waste your money. This game is but a hollow shell of what the developer said it was going to be; there's no meaningful factions, no grand scale space combat (those massive ships that often warp in right in front of you are just window dressing), the galaxy is far from living and breathing; cookie cutter space stations, no trade convoys, broken economy/trade system. Sure there's 18 quintillion planets, but the same repetitive activities on every single one. Then there's the bugs; the game crashing and taking you back to the PS4 dash, resource deposits that magically reappear after you've mined them and then disappear again when you get close, places you've name resetting themselves (but mainly the frequent, frustrating crashes). Not to mention the truly bone-headed design decisions they have made; ships feel and fly exactly the same as each other regardless of size (the only difference being the size of your cargo hold), you're unable to easily go back to a cool planet you have encountered due to a frustrating galaxy map, autopilot stops you from crashing your ship on a planet (which also means you can't land accurately) - i could go on. I kept playing for over 30 hours, waiting for it to get good, but you see the whole game within the first 3 hours or so. Those first 3 hours are fantastic, i'll admit that, but then the repetition sets in, the cracks start to show. It's vast, but boring. It's an indie game, by a small indie team, and it should have been priced accordingly, certainly in it's current state. A billion miles wide, but only an inch deep - certainly not the game that the developer said it would be. Wait for a price drop, for the developer to patch in the missing feature and fix the bugs, or just avoid entirely.
