Though this space adventure provides a pleasant single-player experience, it was clearly designed with online multiplayer in mind. To tackle special dungeons and be prepared when rifts and random events pop up, you’ll need friends to lend a hand ... or a guided rocket launcher. That's not to say that the single-player story isn't intriguing. One of the more noteworthy aspects is the game's ability to use pretty much any resource you can gather for crafting. For example, right at the start, you'll have to brave the elements and collect the materials you'll need to craft your first gun. Of course, before you can even do that, you'll have to get what you need to craft a crafting table to craft your gun on. Aside from weapons, the resources gathered from mining, gathering plants, and drops from killed monsters also are used to craft all items essential to the character's survival, such as armor and your entire base of operations.

Although the purpose of the game is to freely explore this open world and craft your necessities, the one thing you can’t craft in Edge of Space is a better set of instructions. A more in-depth tutorial, or even more scripted content, would be a huge help in figuring out just how to play. New players may find the game confusing, especially with the hundreds of crafting recipes and dozens of resources to use. Be that as it may, if the thought of crafting and creating your own outer space adventure sounds like a blast (and assuming you can figure out how to actually play the game), you might still find Edge of Space an out-of-this-world experience.
