In Cyberpunk 2077, the open world is a dark and dangerous place. This video game does an excellent job of immersing you in its futuristic world by using quality graphics and sound effects to create a realistic atmosphere.
It also has many interesting features: protagonist exploration, moral choices, player-driven gameplay, combat system that emphasizes tactical thinking over reflexes. The open world is one of the best features of this open-world RPG (role playing game) for PC and consoles–it’s massive!
Last December, all eyes were on what I like to call “the little game that couldn’t.” CD Projekt Red’s eagerly anticipated dive into the Cyberpunk genre, which suffered from bugs, glitches and reports of horrible work conditions for the development team. Six months after it launched, enough patches have come to make the game (mostly) playable. But is it any good?
I have been waiting for a while to play Cyberpunk 2077, but after putting off the game till I had more time, I finally found enough time to explore the futuristic world. This game is still playing through my first play through but I am satisfied with the outcome.
The player assumes the role of V, a professional mercenary in Night City. It is set in a futuristic, lawless city created by mixing the American and Japanese styles. The game allows the player to customize V’s appearance, cybernetics, and backstory—I chose a corporate background because “Opulence!”—although it doesn’t make much difference because the video game is in first-person.
The game’s premise is intriguing even if the story feels familiar. V is a mercenary who has been infected with a digital virus. Her goal is to find the person or people who created it and discover why they did so, which means getting help from different factions (and romance-able NPCs) in order to achieve the various objectives.
Cyberpunk 2077 shines because of the little details. Night City is impressive, at least when it’s not bugged. Despite being set in a futuristic world, Cyberpunk 2077 still offers some post-apocalyptic atmosphere. I avoided using Fast Travel because it would have meant missing out on some of the things that are unique to Cyberpunk 2077. I also appreciate video games with combat-free missions—especially sci-fi games, given how much they rely on gunplay.
Yes, I am enjoying the game. But, while there have been some improvements to prevent gaffes, the game still contains a lot of glitches. Examples of the game’s problems include: no art printed on billboards, delayed rendering on buildings and characters, an over-reliance on character models repeating in the same locations, stalled vehicles.
