There are a lot of people that are going to be very disappointed wasting money on No Man's Sky. Exploring lots of worlds will get old fast. The game is pointless in the end.
It is a single player game that tries to call itself multiplayer, but even by the slightest chance you were to meet someone else in the game there is no way to interact.
It is really a shame too, they could have added a bit of the old game Starflight and this game would have been a major winner. As it is, just another half baked game that really has nothing to extend gameplay beyond the exploration phase.
They got too tied up in the term sandbox and forgot that a good sandbox has lots of content.
You write like you have already played it but I know you have not. Maybe I don't watch/read enough marketing stuff but the only claim to MP I've seen is a dev describing exactly how limited it is.
Saying Exploring will get old is a pretty horrible outlook on life though. It just might work, maybe scouting out a dangerous planet and finding something unique you need for a rare upgrade will be as exciting as clicking repeatedly on a nasty named mob in Diablo and having loot pinata. Probably not but you are not going to hurt for reviews of this game. Healthy cynicism is a good thing but premature evaluation of something that looks like an attempt at something newish (Or at the least a modern take on something we haven't seen much of recently) seems short sighted.
I won't pre-order, space games have disappointed me recently (Enemy Starfighter/HotdS *sadface*) but I think it's silly to jump on the hate-wagon here, as it seems even more ridiculous than the hype wagon. (Albeit more likely to be true, given that almost all games turn out mediocre).
