A substantial number of gamers were less than impressed with No Man's Sky , claiming that the preview clips of roaming aliens, lush landscapes, large-scale combat and advanced spacecraft maneuvers didn't match up with the rather humdrum reality of the title.
All part of the game
In a detailed defence, Hello Games emphasized the procedural generation at the heart of No Man's Sky, pointing out that planets weren't individually hand-made. Ultimately, every player gets a difference experience inside the game.
While the ASA noted some "cosmetic changes" between the pre-launch screenshots and the actual game, Hello Games was able to produce in-game footage that was close enough for the regulatory body to be satisfied. In short, the ASA found that gamers hadn't been duped as to what No Man's Sky involved.
