It seems most folks seem to think Starfield is pretty great even though there are some critiques. Some mention the 30 FPS cap on XBox being a problem, some note that they expected Starfield to be a bit more like No Mans Sky and less like Fallout and some people just don't seem to like Bethesda RPG's. Originally I was going to buy Starfield on day one, but due to it not being a great experience on Steam Deck quite yet I am holding off a bit and playing a few other games until it gets a few updates.

If you are looking for a deep technical discussion about Starfield on PC check out the Digital Foundry discussion. I appreciate how Digital Foundry approaches reviewing games, focusing more on gaming performance and how gameplay works and less on meme based tomfoolery.

Here’s hoping they patch some performance in to get the framerate better on the Deck. It’s phenomenal, when I’m not playing it I just want to be back in it.
