"No Man's Sky" was first launched on Aug. 8. Prior to its release, the gamers' interest in it run high and this resulted to numerous pre-orders. However, when Hello Games finally made the game available to the public, a lot of people were disappointed and their excitement for the game went down the drain.

This happened because players realized that "No Man's Sky" was not the type of game that the developers described it would be. In the earlier times, Hello Games promoted the game with a promise that players will experience limitless space exploration and discover over 18 quintillion planets. But as it turned out, the game lacks action and does not even have the multi-player option.

"No Man's Sky" may still be in the stage of development but many players do not want to wait for the updates anymore and they want refund instead. According to Game Rant, the game already lost 90 percent of its active players in two weeks.

Likewise, a growing number of players are venting out their frustrations because they find the game to be repetitive. It was added that that as they continue to explore the galaxy and discover various planets, the exploration does not result to any achievement at all so it seems that they are just searching for nothing.

Now, Steam is offering refunds to dissatisfied players of "No Man's Sky." However, not everyone is eligible for this offer and only those who played the game for less than two hours can ask for and get a refund. The return of payments was revealed on Reddit and some players already confirmed getting their money back from Amazon, Sony and Steam.

Game experts say that if you want a game that progresses quickly, then "No Man's Sky" is not a good choice. It still has a lot of flaws and this slow down the gameplay. Meanwhile, Hello Games recently hired a QA team in an effort to resolve the critical issues with NMS and be able deliver smooth gameplay to players.
