Ultimately not worth the purchase price at this time.
While the game is still in Early Access, the core experience is lacking on entertainment value. All immersion is lost when you must travel through a 2D map and enter small variation-lacking instances to complete content akin to a lobby based game. Once you arrive at your destination, the missions, interface and controls leave you wondering why you made the trip in the first place. Due to a variety of issues, most notably the UI scaling issues, I was unable to play the game efficiently.
Game Looks Good
Missions are uninspiring and duplicated dozens of times
Controls feel VERY disjointed and laggy -- combat is not smooth at all
User Interface that is unintuitive and ugly (YMMV)
Higher resolutions (4k, surround/eyefinity setups) will be affected by user interface bugs that remove the functionality of target reticles making aiming nigh impossible
Frequent updates come with issues -- little bug testing often leads to performance issues
Cutscenes every time you dock, depart, travel...SPACEBAR SPACEBAR SPACEBAR SPACEBAR...
Grey area when it comes to "No character reset in early access, get ahead before launch " due to Alt-F4 trade exploits (Search for more information) -- If currency/items are wiped, it may not be worth paying to get an early "advantage" when more complete games are available for a lower cost
I recommend sticking to some of the non-MMO space simulators while you wait for this game to mature. Unfortunately, even with all of these cons fixed, the game still does not seem to offer anything over other titles.
