Cyberpunk 2077 review
Meh
by Dylan

This is a review in progress based off of the base PS4 Cyberpunk and low end PC performance.

I'm not sure how to score this one yet. This is a current review in progress. I've played it on both base PS4 and a meh PC, aka gets sometimes decent performance on low graphical settings and let me tell you, it's night and day. The one seemingly most popular current example is the firs time you meet Dex and he's smoking a cigar. The smoke physics are night and day. Aside from that, the game looks miles better, even when it dips below the 30 fps range, the neon looks better, and their is no npc pop in like on base ps4.

Quest wise, I'm very early on but the meeting with Royce, both build up and aftermath felt very good. I'm very interested in a certain prophet's quest line as well. It seems like despite this games many bugs and glitches, the quests will be very satisfying.

I would not recommend this game on a base PS4/XBOX at all. This game is clearly tailored to high end PCs and your best experience will be on machines of that type. However, if you're like me with a lowly 1060 and the lowest of i7's, scraping just enough RAM, the game is indeed better than expected IF you're okay with your frames taking an absolute nose dive now and then.

This game has GOTY potential but right now is struggling to catch up to the likes of RDR2, Ghost of Tsushima, GoW, LoU2, etc... as far as immersive open worlds are concerned.

Having played release and now on 1.6 the difference is night and day. This Game really shines now the bugs have been ironed out and the story is a genuine joy to play. If you never played it at release I urge anyone who was interested to give it a go now as this is now the experience we all wished we had at release.

I have no idea why everyone rated this game "exceptional" but sure isn't. The story might be "good" but the gameplay is bad, repetitive and boring asf. I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone but of course, this is just my opinion.

Funny 
I started playing a long time after release and I didn't experience many issues. I saw a car flip into the air for no reason, that was fun. I had to clear out all enemies from an area and one of them was in the group, that was not so fun. Ultimately, I enjoyed running around Night City and meeting some interesting characters. I didn't much like the FPS style combat and didn't feel like my character upgrades were doing much of anything.

Date Completed: 2022-08-21
Playtime: 30h
Enjoyment: 7/10
Recommendation: It's no Witcher but, at this point, I think it's worth a run through.
I was really not expecting to like this game as much as I did. From the first major mission setting up the main storyline I was on board and everything after was just a great ride. There were a lot of great side missions with a good handful of some fun detective work in a few. There are great companion characters that you will grow to love. Judy is one of my favorite game characters now with her awesome story arc and great VO performance. Speaking of VO, female V was incredible. That actor gave an incredible performance and nailed all the emotion she needed to convey in her scenes. Gameplay is fun but nothing special. It's very fun to just dice people up with mantis blades. I know this game had a hell of a rocky start but after the patch I encountered almost no bugs or crashes and just enjoyed the story and the world as I think they intended. I really hope others had as good of a time as I did with it.
8.5/10

Ugly! Useful! Stupid!
It just didn't come together right. It's not that the game is low quality, but there is no real spirit that would make this game exceptional.

alright i know what im supposed to say about this game and what i actually feel about it are 2 different things so im just gonna tell you what i actually feel about the game but it must stay between me and you. I shit myself not once, not twice, not even three times. I played and shit myself 4 times in this game and each time i felt like a new character in a fresh new anime. Thats until you pass the intro for each lifepath of course but the gameplay is fun each time. 9/10, not a masterpiece but my god it is fun
