Is No Man’s Sky worth playing in 2022?

No Man's Sky could be your game.

For good and bad reasons, developer Hello Games' No Man's Sky is one of the most well-known titles in the gaming industry. Most players will know it for offering a nearly unlimited experience, but it also had one of the worst launches and reception in gaming history. However, after six years and an upcoming Nintendo Switch release, you may wonder if No Man's Sky is good in 2022.

Is No Man's Sky good now?

This answer will depend on what you are looking for, but generally, No Man's Sky is definitely worth it in 2022 and is considered a good game. While it had a rocky launch, Hello Games has added an incredible amount of content to the game, all for free, meaning you only need to purchase the game to enjoy all of its content.

Whether or not you will enjoy the game depends on two factors: If you are looking for an in-depth story and if you are okay with repetitive gameplay loops. No Man's Sky's story is fairly lacking and should not be why you pick this title up. But it offers a lot of content, including exploring space and planets, collecting flora and fauna, space battles, gunplay, and more. No Man's Sky's appeal comes from its addicting gameplay loop, but it can become repetitive.

If you are on the fence about whether you should buy No Man's Sky in 2022, we recommend waiting for a sale. No Man's Sky goes on sale, typically up to 50 percent off, quite often. So add the title to your wishlist on your preferred console and wait for that sale notification. If you are looking for a fun space experience, feel free to pull the trigger, as you can easily get your money's worth out of No Man's Sky.
