Early access, but it's out and playable now.

I was pretty excited about this. But once I watched a few videos of pre release game play I'm not so sure now. Almost 4 years since announcement and all I see is a graphics update and a few UI tweaks.

I think I will wait a while longer.

BRUTAL REVIEW


Kerbal Space Program 2 early access review: a catastrophic re-entry

"Oh no, poor Kerbal Space Program 2. The extremely anticipated sequel to everyone’s favourite rocket-building space exploration game is a hot mess. A list of bugs longer than a Saturn V reads like a terrible medical diagnosis: quivering periapsis, unpredictable methane leakage, late-stage separation anxiety, loose payloads, non-stop burning, and sensitive nodes.

The developers, smiling bravely in circumstances presumably beyond their control, describe the launch as like dropping a kid off for their first day at school. Well the kid forgot their lunchbox, their uniform, their books and their pencil case. They showed up at the wrong school, on a Saturday during half-term. If you were stranded on a desert island and had to recreate Kerbal Space Program from memory using nothing but coconuts and string, it would look something like Kerbal Space Program 2. The game is nowhere approaching finished, it barely resembles the promotional videos, and it isn’t ready, even by Early Access standards."

That's maybe a bit harsh, they're not wrong though. I would definitely suggest waiting until it's complete. In many ways this is a step back from the original KSP. For the next couple years just keep playing the original.
