While I certainly got my moneys worth out of the game, it still got boring quickly, because all the planets look the same after a while. You just dont see new stuff anymore.
Yupp. The variety of planets, even now promoted in videos for Beyond, isnt there. I have visited over 50 systems ... you have your seven biome types (lush, desert, hot, radioactive, frozen, poison, barren) and they look all the same. One desert planet looks like ALL desert planets. There is a slight variance in fauna, flora or mineral shape, but these are just details. You know one desert planet, you know ALL desert planets. Sure, they sometimes throw in one of those exotic worlds, but there you also have recurring subtypes. You know one exotic planet type, you know ALL planets of this sub type.
For all the hype of exploring the unknown ... actually the universe looks very small, because there is just not enough variety.
No Man's Sky is three years after it's release still one broken promise after the other.
