No Man's Sky PC Performance Review

Control Options

 

The controls for the PC version of No Man's Sky is rather lacklustre. While players can rebind the game's keys to anything they want, No Man's Sky does a terrible job at telling gamers how to play. 

In menus PC players will often be required to hold onto their left mouse button when a simple click would have been sufficient, showing how this game has been designed around a controller rather than keyboard and mouse. One other problem with menus is when you click on a lot of items, your mouse will warp to the centre of the screen, which can be rather jarring to a lot of PC players. 

All in all, it looks like No Man's Sky has been primarily designed to be used with a controller, with the keyboard and mouse controls being an afterthought.

I've played around 20 hours on the game so far and to be honest it's fun for a while but as there's no real goal other than maxing out your inventory and finding a ship with a big inventory, It starts to feel quite empty.Quote

So far, I have only experience one drop in FPS but a game restart solved this. No further issues since.

I really do not like the space combat, it is horrible and pointless, you will die a lot. 3 vs me = death!Quote

am about 30hours in, just at the 3rd system so far, really enjoying just pondering about, dont have any issues running the game itself, but i can do little else at the same time, running 1080 with med/high settings im hitting like 95-100% util on my i7 2600, so i just limited affinity to 6 cores and still hitting like 45-50fps, but can actually watch a stream at the same time. while not the ideal situation, is ok for now, till some stuff gets worked on. 3 systems down eleventy maj-bilillion to go Quote

Please note that I am aware of the newly released experimental Beta patch for No Man's Sky.

Sadly I will not be able to test this new patch today as I am in my hometown today and will be attending a funeral of a close family friend. I will test this new beta patch as soon as I am able.Quote

It's Elite without the fun. It's the grind of Minecraft/MMOs without the goal. The fact the performance is shocking only adds to my belief that this really isn't for me. I'm happy meandering about, but some kind of goal, even a nebulous (ha) one would be nice.Quote
