I made it mostly through the main story mission of No Man’s Sky. I’m trying to figure out how to discuss it without spoiling it, but let’s just say that it works pretty well. Yes, it’s a thinly veiled attempt to familiarize the player with the different elements of the game, but it also feels like an old school Sci-Fi story, the way the planets look like the covers from those pulp novels. You make some choices, and have to think about some things. It’s a lot of fun.
