On the aggregator OpenCritic, the average rating was 88 points out of 100 based on 94 reviews. 93% of journalists recommended the game to pass. Journalists praise the new universe full of stories and events, freedom of wagering, improved shooting, abundance of content, sometimes mesmerizing landscapes and surprisingly few bugs and performance issues. Starfield is one of the most expansive and exciting games in recent years. You can immerse yourself in it for many dozens of hours, exploring hundreds of planets and completing numerous quests.

The author of the GamesRadar edition noted that Starfield is so large-scale that sometimes it even feels like there is too much to do in the game. Because of this, your eyes are scattered and it is not always clear what you need to do right now. According to him, it can't be considered a big disadvantage, but players should keep it in mind so that they don't "burn out" during the passage.

The reviewers had different opinions about the combat system. They found the battles on the ground not the most exciting, while the battles in space - extremely exciting and dynamic. In general, the journalists praised the combat system, calling it the best among Bethesda games.

But not all the reviews were positive. For example, a journalist from TechRadar wrote that the narrative was not always successful, and in general the game seemed "soulless" to him. IGN edition gave the game 7 points out of 10. The reviewer stated that one of the main drawbacks of Starfield for him was not a good start, which he had to endure. According to him, the game becomes good only after ten hours. The author of the publication Game Informer also came to this conclusion. He wrote that "it took him a long time to fall in love with Starfield".

Of course, there are bugs in the game. Several journalists have written that they've had issues with different mechanics and shooting on more than one occasion. In addition, sometimes the artificial intelligence may not behave in the most correct way.

Whether Starfield is better than the previous works of the studio, everyone will decide for themselves - journalists differ on this issue. Critics agree that the new game will definitely not disappoint the fans.
