  • Discover, Collect, Build - Explore planets and discover the fauna, flora, and resources needed to craft everything from medicine and food to equipment and weapons.

8.5 Game Informer Must Play

Starfield Review

Overwhelming Scope

by Matt Miller on Aug 31, 2023

Game Informer Must Play

Even in the increasingly crowded marketplace of big, expansive games, Starfield stands out. Leveraging the gameplay Bethesda popularized with The Elder Scrolls and Fallout games, Starfield expands the breadth of exploration to a galaxy of solar systems, planets, and ships. It populates those environments with a rich palette of activities and missions that tap into the outer space fantasy. It’s a staggering span of content to wrap one’s head around. At times, that scope threatens to impair the focus and pacing, and moment-to-moment gameplay is not always a strong suit. But players can expect to uncover hundreds of hours of experimentation in a richly imagined sci-fi playground, and that thrill is worth experiencing.

Your crafted character begins life as a space miner who inexplicably connects with an inscrutable buried artifact, granting visions of a grand cosmic mystery. That foundational event puts you in contact with a tightly-knit group of explorers working to decipher the secret. The introduction opens the door to your adventures across a vast network of human colony worlds that has sprung up after an exodus from Earth.

Character dialogue and storytelling is top-notch, with novel personalities and interactions every step of the way. The mostly independent storylines of different factions, corporations, and companions each tap into different sci-fi tropes, from being hunted by a monstrous xenoweapon alien to infiltrating a pirate fleet to being a frontier lawman on the fringes of known space. The variety of these experiences keeps things fresh, especially when you layer in additional emergent opportunities, like setting up mining outposts, surveying planets, buying and decorating a home, or pursuing a romance with one of your companions.

Starfield is a game of endless distractions, where new mission threads and activities are constantly beckoning. I found the most enjoyment when I allowed those threads to pull me to and fro, creating a web of interactions I could flip between as I saw fit. Some activities, like visiting alien temples, hunting down merc ships, or clearing out bases of outlaws, can start to feel repetitive if taken on without a break to do other things. I also grew frustrated at the frequent ping-ponging between mission givers and destinations; even with fast travel, it felt especially egregious to be flying to an entirely different star system only to fly back to tell someone what I saw there. Nonetheless, several mission moments are standout and memorable, like a research lab shifting between different states of reality or a corporate espionage exchange in the back room of a dance club. In its best moments, I was immersed in Starfield’s unfolding tale.

The joy of exploration is a core tenet of play, and nailing that sensation is central to Starfield’s success. I loved landing on a new planet and seeing unknown megafauna wandering the plains or entering a new city and finding the seediest dive bar. Arrive in a new system and dock with a derelict space station – who knows what’s inside? Starfield is a story about both the good and the bad of humanity’s desire to reach further and uncover what’s just out of grasp, and I love that those themes weave into the flow of how players may approach the game. That engagement is only enhanced by the high quality of the presentation; this is an immaculate visual landscape filled with details juxtaposed against the grandeur of space, accentuated by a wistful, questing musical score that always nails the right mood.

I found navigating Starfield obtuse, both in moving around a giant map of stars and its U.I. and systems. Figuring out how to do basic tasks, like selling excess inventory, modifying my ship, adjusting crew assignments, or reaching a particular star system, often made me scratch my head. The constant need to enter menus to reach destinations hampers the sensation of seamless travel. I started to feel like it was a car dashboard where no button was where I expected it to be. But once I learned my way around, it was a vehicle that took me to some remarkable destinations.

Ground combat is central to the experience, and most players are likely to spend a significant chunk of time with a gun in their hand, even if they try as I did, to lean into persuasion and stealth for many encounters. I enjoyed the diversity of weapons, from laser rifles to shotguns that seemed yanked out of an old Western. Traversal is thrilling thanks to the jet boost packs you can wear on your back to leap and mantle through environments quickly. But gunplay feels stiff and mechanical, and enemies pursue unwise pathing and positioning that rarely leads to real challenge or tension. Pulling out the big guns and laying waste to a base of baddies is entertaining, but the action itself left me cold.

Shipborne space combat also plays a big role, and I love having a chance to tap into that craving. But I rarely encountered battles that clicked. I completely wiped out the enemy forces in moments, or the ships arrayed against me were way out of my league – there was little in between.

It took me a long time to fall in love with Starfield, and even after I did, certain aspects didn’t work for me. But the things I didn’t enjoy are vastly outweighed by my enthusiasm for this new, original science fiction universe, the breadth of its adventures, and the appeal of its many interwoven stories. Go in with the expectation that it will take some time to find your footing in such a vast gameplay space, and there’s a universe well worth discovering here.

Stay On The Main Path, At Least For Awhile

Tips & Tricks

Stay On The Main Path, At Least For Awhile


Starfield lets you loose pretty quickly, and it is tempting to just start planet hopping right away, but you will do yourself a favor by sticking to the main path for at least a few hours. Our suggestion is that you play at least enough Constellation missions to find a mysterious temple. It may feel restrictive to hold yourself back, but you will be grateful to give yourself the time to learn the game, find good weapons, and build up your inventory.

Fast-Travel Is The Primary (And Often Only) Way To Explore

Tips & Tricks

Fast-Travel Is The Primary (And Often Only) Way To Explore


Starfield breaks away from the traditional Bethesda RPG formula by heavily relying on fast-travel right from the start. Unlike previous games where you could explore the entire world on foot, Starfield consists of disconnected locations that can only be accessed through fast travel. To navigate quickly, you can use the "set course" button on the star map in the pause menu, enter scanner mode to bring your ship into view and fast travel back to it, or set a course directly from the missions menu for specific missions.

Hotkey Your Favorite Weapons

Tips & Tricks

Hotkey Your Favorite Weapons


The d-pad on a controller gives you access to a number of quick-select options, but it's not immediately clear that you must select what you want to appear in those quick-select slots. Your best bet is to fill it with various types of weapons to handle every situation so you'll be able to quickly jump to a different gun if you run out of ammo. In the inventory menu while looking at a weapon, you must press the favorite button (Y on an Xbox controller) to place it in one of those slots.

Have A Gun For Each Ammo Type

Tips & Tricks

Have A Gun For Each Ammo Type


Ammo isn't the most scarce consumable in Starfield. The game is not in the survival horror genre, but running into enemies you are somewhat under-leveled for is not uncommon. What this means is you will be shooting a lot of bullets. The best way to be prepared for this situation is have different weapon types so you can take advantage of all available ammo.

Here's How To Sell Items

Tips & Tricks

Here's How To Sell Items


The Distribution Center, resembling the building depicted above, is the most convenient place to sell a wide variety of items. Look out for street signs indicating its location in New Atlantis. When dealing with a shop that is interested in purchasing your items, you have the option to sell from either your personal inventory or your ship's inventory. However, it's important to note that you cannot sell anything that your companions are currently holding. If you have given someone a valuable gun that you wish to sell, ensure that you retrieve it from them before initiating a conversation with the merchant.

Use Your Ship And Companions To Carry Your Stuff

Tips & Tricks

Use Your Ship And Companions To Carry Your Stuff


You have the option to rely on both your companions and your ship for assistance. By engaging in conversations with your companions and discussing item exchanges, you can provide them with useful items. This not only enhances their equipment but also allows for a change in their appearance. Sharing items with your ship, however, requires a slightly different approach. If you are aboard your ship and facing the cockpit, you will find the ship's inventory menu located on the wall to the left, slightly behind the pilot's seat. From there, you can transfer items by pressing X and switch to your own inventory by pressing the left bumper. This enables you to select the desired items to add to your ship's inventory.

Invest In The Boost Pack, Stealth, And Persuasion Early

Tips & Tricks

Invest In The Boost Pack, Stealth, And Persuasion Early


Dozens of upgrades are available to your space adventurer at the start, but the three listed here –boost pack, steal, and persuasion – are particularly useful early on. The boost pack allows you to use your jetpack, which is great for combat, but also fun for just walking around. Why take the stairs when you can fly up to the second floor? You won't even be able to see a stealth meter without upgrading at least once and persuasion is just a particularly useful ability to have when you're not strong or confident enough to make every conversation devolve into a gunfight.

Aim For The Weak Spots

Tips & Tricks

Aim For The Weak Spots


Aiming for the weak spots is shooter 101. It's not so much a tip as much as it is something every video game fan is born knowing. The wrinkle with Starfield, however, is the weak spot isn't always apparent. The game doesn't tell you where they are, but when you hit them, you'll see a critical hit marker on screen by the enemy. For the most part, they are where you'd expect: headshots on human enemies, but for robots, like the quadruped dog robots you will encounter, aiming at their legs is what results in critical hits.

Ship Customization Is A Late-Game Activity

Tips & Tricks

Ship Customization Is A Late-Game Activity


One of the major selling points of Starfield is the ability to have a ship and customize it, build one from scratch, purchase a new one, or maybe just steal one. Unfortunately, the high-levels of ship customization do not really make themselves apparent until late in the game. Yes, you can customize a ship, but don't expect to be creating your masterpiece spaceship during the opening hours. It's going to take some time and a whole lot of credits.

Try Everything (Once You Have Your Feet Under You)

Tips & Tricks

Try Everything (Once You Have Your Feet Under You)


The very first tip on this list is to take things slow. Stay on the main path. Play it safe... initially. Once you have a basic understanding of how things work, we highly suggest getting out of your comfort zone. The game is not really designed for you to find your favorites early and stick with them. You will be much better off if you are not precious about, well, basically anything, and move out of your comfort zone whenever the opportunity presents itself. Try new things constantly. Swap out your weapons, ships, companions, and even the types of missions you're doing. It will lead to a more rewarding experience.
