The anticipation is getting higher after the thirst to taste it in person has to face the “wall” of delaying releases several times, making the wait for the last 7 years unbearable. On the other hand, as more information is shared with the public, there are various expectations that are being built in the minds of gamers about what kind of gaming experience they can look forward to. But unfortunately, its release ended up being greeted with controversy, especially because of the various technical problems that haunted the release on the latest generation consoles. The name Cyberpunk 2077 also ended in injury.
So, what does Cyberpunk 2077 actually offer? Why do we call it a game that feels like a trap in a corporate illusion? This review will discuss it more deeply for you!
Welcome to the Night City!
If we have to talk about one of the best aspects that CD Projekt Red has successfully executed with Cyberpunk 2077, then their success in building and presenting such a charming Night City is one that deserves to be appreciated. We are of course not only talking from a visual presentation perspective, how the majestic tall buildings line up in many corners with bright advertisements that keep demanding you to consume more products or how it is surrounded by barren areas that also serve as landfills. electronics that were born from the human lifestyle only. We’re talking about the characters who live and live in Night City, which ultimately makes this city much more interesting than you might think.
One of the best parts of Night City is the characters that live in it. The NPC he is carrying does not look complex enough to have a specific daily activity schedule, but it is sufficient to represent the lifestyle that this game is trying to highlight. You will see a mix of lifestyles of modern humans who still find time to have fun in clubs, openly explore their sexual needs, to just keep broadcasting conspiracy theories that seem, remain difficult to erase from the future. All of them are presented with flickering fluorescent lights and a variety of billboards containing products that with real-world reasoning, it is almost impossible to end up being highlighted.
We’re sure you’ll be curious about Keanu Reeves’ acting as Johnny Silverhand in Cyberpunk 2077, which not only lends his digital form, but also the sound and motion capture process. Being such a big part of V’s story as characters, we can be among those who love what Keanu has to offer here. Still using his unique acting with a dialogue intonation that is still relatively flat in most situations, at least he managed to capture the “apathy” of Johnny Silverhand, who is described as a radical with a huge grudge full of hatred towards big corporations, especially Arasaka. Through Keanu’s voice and acting, Johnny Silverhand looks like a cool and cool character at the same time. You could feel that he was fed up with the condition of Night City.
Unfortunately, this side of the presentation also contains a weakness that is tied to the gameplay itself. Believe it or not, fashion. We are not experts to discuss this element in full and detail, but it seems that you don’t need a special eye to understand how different the quality of fashion worn by V as the main character and the variety of supporting characters you encounter during the story. Almost all of the fashion companion characters you meet look beautiful, represent cyberpunk themes well, and also provide fairly clear information about their backgrounds. As for V? With a fashion system that is tied to an RPG-style equipment system, you will find it difficult to find a mix and match that will make him look like a cool character. Most of the fashion available for V, especially the hat business, looks depressing.
The good news, despite these design issues, is that Cyberpunk 2077’s presentation of the music side of things fortunately lives up to expectations in a fantastic way. Apart from several major OSTs involving well-known artists, whose songs you can also enjoy in the game through cut-scenes or various radio channels available, various OSTs were formulated by Marcin Przybyłowicz and P.T. Adamczyk managed to build the Cyberpunk 2077 atmosphere right. The loud beat of the music at some point reminds you of Mick Gordon’s DOOM, with an injection of futuristic elements that make everything feel fierce, ready to make your open war action even more adrenaline-inducing. On the other hand, calmer music is also ready to accompany when moments like this are needed.
Full of Technical Problems
Before we talk further about Cyberpunk 2077’s gameplay, it seems appropriate if we talk about the various technical problems that have flooded this game’s release, especially for the current-gen console versions: Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Why is it so important? Believe it or not, the bugs and glitches he is carrying are no longer something that just makes you laugh, sad or happy. But already in a capacity where he does mess with the comfort of playing. How messed up? At some point, you even begin to have to guess what just happened and what the trigger might be. Because most of these problems will end up annoying.
Then slowly but surely, as your game progresses, you will start to find bugs and glitches that start messing up the game. You’ll find things annoying the UI, like Johnny Silverhand’s dialog subtitles refusing to disappear from the main screen and sticking around there, even though the lines from other characters come and go.
But the part that annoys us the most is how the story points in Cyberpunk 2077 can suddenly change your character’s inventory and equipment at will without prior notification. At one point, you suddenly wake up naked and have to reset this inventory from scratch. At other points, you get a new weapon according to the story that automatically changes your weapon allocation across the three main slots regardless of whether you want it or not before plunging straight into the action side.
The biggest source of annoyance? At one point in the story, this game suddenly automatically changed the body V’s cyberware modification without prior notification. The position of Cyberware that was changed was the hand, which we pinned the “Smartlink” feature to make all our smart weapons able to detect, aim and kill all the enemies it encounters. Imagine our surprise when our 2 smart weapons – our Smart SMG and Smart Sniper Rifle suddenly stopped working, refusing to detect the enemy in sight. We wanted to scream when we discovered that the source of the problem was not a bug, but CD Projekt Red’s decision to change parts of Cyberware in the name of a “story”, even though it was nothing you could see or contribute to the immersive sensation that existed. We cannot understand what they are trying to achieve with this condition.
The combination of these various problems must be admitted, ending up hurting the gaming experience offered by Cyberpunk 2077.We are not only talking about technical issues that mark the under-optimization process of the console version, but also some design decisions that are ready to make your forehead a little bumpy, fishing. more questions about the logic behind it. This is not a problem that is locked on the technical side, especially if we talk about the RPG elements that it carries.
Cyberpunk 2077 has an appeal that is hard to resist as long as you come to enjoy the story and the characters it carries. Your enjoyment will be optimal if the main reason you come to taste it is the world and the story it stores, and not because of the RPG system that it carries. However, with the various technical issues that are carried out today, even in the PC version, we recommend that you wait until at least more updates are released to ensure a more perfect experience. While waiting, there is always a probability that it will drop at a lower, wallet-friendly price later.
