I bought it for the PS4 earlier this year and liked it quite a lot, for some weeks. The Survival mode adds some good peril, and I was impressed with the graphics and world generation. The space stations and freighters help create a sense of cosmic scale, though not as literally and tiresomely as Elite Dangerous does. The base-building seems okay, if over-dependent on fetch quests to gain the different building modules and so on. I just about ground my way up to having the Terrain Manipulator which was fun.
To me though, the fundamental flaw at the centre of the NMS galaxy seems to be that every quest and action is rewarded by increasing your inventory, be that of your space backpack, gun or ship. It feels like a grand Space Opera where the hero prevails by acquiring a steamer trunk and a warehouse.
