It's a decent enough game for what it is, but you've got to enjoy the core mechanics of exploration, crafting and survival to get much out of it.

It was massively overhyped at launch though and only subsequently patched towards respectability, and you'll see some wildly differing opinions on account of that.

I've got 1,900 hours in. I started on day one, and am playing current Beyond now. Went in for VR on the Rift S and it's quite an experience. But I like the older, wilder terrain of earlier versions and am now setup so I can play both the late 2016 v1.1 Foundation as well as current Beyond (dual Win 10 boot partitions). I wrote a bit about this sentiment, a while back.

Though, I now feel that the game in its current form appeals to many more people than the early versions, so Hello Games' decisions on trajectory have been sound, I have to argue.

Thanks, that's a good read. Foundation was what finally tempted me to give it a go and it didn't disappoint.

Still, Sean Murray will forever be synonymous for promising what you can't deliver, even if he eventually gave us almost all of it.
