Joseph Bradford (IGN)

7.5/10

Whether you’re soaking in the cosmos around you, banking large sums of credits from a well-planned trading haul, or surviving a harrowing encounter with space pirates in dazzling ship-to-ship combat, Elite Dangerous has plenty to keep me excited to come back. And when those long-haul sessions become too much, Arena mode is there to inject some much-needed action at a moment’s notice.

86/100

A great game and, with time, potentially a classic. Much rests on Frontier’s ability to build on these broad but somewhat shallow foundations.

4/5 stars

Elite: Dangerous has come a long way since its debut in 2014. It’s now a much more complete product, making it an attractive option for PS4 gamers who have the urge to leave Earth and see what the Milky Way galaxy has to offer.
