I dunno how far along I am in terms of the CYBERPUNK 2077 storyline: I’m at level 25 or so, and I’ve unlocked the entire map, and I’m starting to get the good stuff. So I’m that far along. I should also note that CD Projekt Red didn’t give me anything for this review, more’s the pity. I don’t like that I have to give that kind of disclaimer, but that’s the world we live in now.
Short review, so far: I’m playing it on a PC, so it’s great.
Slightly longer version: …I’ve been up far too late playing this game for the last week, and I’m only now slowing down. The dialogue is excellent, the storyline is engrossing, and the mechanics are largely fun*. I fully understand that people might strenuously contest that last sentence, on the grounds that they can’t get the game to work on their Playstation and/or Xbox. I also sympathize. But as a PC game it’s worth the money. I understand it works pretty good on Stadia, too. Go figure.
PS: My current machine is an AMD Ryzen 7 8-core, 3.70 Ghz, with 16 gigs of RAM and a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060. I admittedly bought it with this game in mind, but it’s not particularly tricked out otherwise.
*The crafting system needs work, and some aspects of leveling and hacking money are not intuitive. Neither were smart weapons, but I worked that out on my own.
