HI all, been watching some game play lately, trying to build up my knowledge before I get this game. Thought I'd do a bit of research online and found a lot of negativity directed towards SC and it's creators. 

Is the game as good as it's supposed to be? Or is the negativity warranted?

The negativity has come from its long development time. While the game still promises a lot and looks like it will continue to build to something great. It has taken its time getting to where it is now. 

As whether the game will be as good as it's supposed to be is all dependent on time. While you can play the game now and have fun with it, it's nowhere near to how good it is supposed to be. That all due to the fact the game is still in heavy development due to Chris Roberts Epic scope for the game.

I still believe the game will be as good as it's supposed to be but it will just take its time to get there.

Is it as good as it is supposed to be?  Not …  yet.  The game remains in an early alpha state.  But give it time. 

CIG is building a 'holy grail' game:  Massive universe, fully-realized planets, rendered cities, multi-crewed capital ships, many viable career tracks, and more.  

The beauty for the moment comes in experiencing game play systems coming on line.  Its like watching a master piece being painted.

But for those that don't like watching the paint dry, its probably best checking back in a year or more still.

Keep in mind that CIG's development is still within the timeline of some AAA games that have been successful.

Indeed. If you look at some current AAA titles that have been in development for about 6 years, some still leave much to be desired... *cough*anthem*cough*.
Give it a few more years and I'm sure Star Citizen will make the nessesary steps to get a lot better.

      I am a proud collector of many a game and builder of my own computer, and I've always, always loved scifi and spaceships and all that sorta stuff. However, no game has ever really filled the niche of scifi spacegame and all that openworld jazz-- Space Engineers did, for a time, but it grew too lonely, too unfulfilling, because even with how much I loved building and space (and SE does a fantastic job of combining them, even back when I started playing it years before its full release), it didn't really have atmosphere, challenge, or reward. Elite Dangerous held my attention for a short while, but I quickly grew tired of it and found myself off-put by how disconnected everything is-- you remain in your ship the entire time, and little more, without paying a significant extra just for land vehicles-- and with real money, you couldn't get them with the base game at all, which was, again, off-putting. I've always heard there's a great deal more to Elite Dangerous, but its a game that didn't grab my attention and let me really enjoy the fact that I'm in *space.*

      So I ask, is it worth to get this? Now, I don't mind bugs and the like-- so long as it doesn't truly *break* the game (ship being destroyed, for example, and unable to regain it), I'm fine with bugs. I've a long history of grabbing games in alpha or beta and enjoying them just fine, bugs and all. I'm just asking if it's feasible to play it, to run missions or build outposts or whatever (I recall watching a few videos on the topic some time ago). How hard is it to team up with people-- would casually playing it in the afternoon possibly lead to actually making and joining a community? Are there groups, clans, factions that are recruiting?
       
      Is it worth playing, and if I do get it, would I end up playing alone or how likely would it be that I could end up attached to some people, wingmen to play with?
      I'm quite willing to buy into the game. Just not sure if I'd enjoy it and be able to laugh afterwards.
