I spent many hours in NMS. I won't say it's "great", but I won't say it's horrible either. It does not appear to be what was advertised, but it is what I expected. (a space based exploration game). I spent about 100 hours in the game - plenty of value for my $60. And I usually play off-line so my game time is not part of the "steam" counts. I fired up the game for the first time last night in two months to checkout what the new update did. Deleted my saved games and began a survival mode. Much harder than in the past. Getting to the first station and I'm greeted by 3 aliens instead of the usual 1. Two of them want me to hire them for my base - that I don't have yet. That's different. Looks like I'll get another $60 worth of entertainment from this game. Good value despite the naysayers (not matter how justified).
