    Tags: CD Projekt; Cyberpunk 2077

    Only three days remain until the release of Cyberpunk 2077. The Internet is already inundated with leaked gameplay footage, and today the review embargo officially lifted for the PC version. It shouldn't be a surprise that most of the review scores are quite high, including several perfect scores. I won't bother trying to exhaustively summarize them, but in short, Cyberpunk 2077 is a massive game with tons of content, including a few stand-out side quests with a more humane touch. However, it's also somewhat janky and despite the hopes for an "open world Deus Ex" is not really an immersive sim, and a few of the reviews have penalized it for those reasons. Here's the list of today's reviews, including a video from IGN:

    There are also several outlets that have published review-in-progress articles, and of course the console reviews will be coming at a later date as well. Note that no gameplay footage is included with any of these. The embargo on that will lift on December 9th.

    "Immersive sim" is right now the single greatest red herring created to distract from the fact that the gameplay is subpar and the writing is lacking. I wonder how it will work in this game.

    Expecting the clickbait reviews go full trans rights are human rights angle, especially kotaku and rock paper shotgun.

    Does it have stats or is it just a shooter with dialogue?

    Looks like it's stat-lite, slightly more than Witcher 3.

    7/10 from Gamespot? That's the closest to a shit rating they'll hand out. Apparently Polack Bethesda lacks the zloty to pay them off.

    How so? This actually has stats, whereas W3 had the joke that was the ability and mutagen system.

    The 5 main attributes are Body, Intelligence, Reflexes, Technical, and Cool. Each are tied to a perk tree. As far as I can tell, this has more character customization, build variety, and progression than W3 had, but that's not saying much.

    Seems like a lot of the complaints I'm seeing is the game has trannies, but doesn't have trannies as the central focus so because of that it's "stuck in the past". Also, sometimes it isn't "sensitive", which as we all know is tantamount to genocide.

    Cyber pacifist since pacifism is a thing now? You know, even though Vampyre BL2 was floundering, this is like a nuclear powered cyber-stake to its heart.

    It appears the game will be EXACTLY like Witcher 3. Generally poor main story with wacky side quests being it's high point. Negligible RPG elements with simple "Need X STR to break open this door" and generic perks giving percentage bonuses to dmg/bleed chance/reload speed. Melee combat seems to resemble Gothic 3 with attacks stunlocking enemies (something firearms do not do) and gunfigts "feel like Mass Effect". Enemies appear to be exceptionally stupid as well. Also:

    In short: not breathtaking.

    The game being buggy on release should be of no surprise and just a given. What AAA game is not a buggy mess on release? I don't know why people are complaining about that. It's current year. 500GBs of patches in a few months from now will surely iron things out.

    Good thing they delayed it 9 months, because a delayed game is eventually... oh wait, they delayed it to downngrade the living fuck out of it to make it run on PS4 non-pro, not to release it in a marketable state.

    In context he isn't wrong. Whoever wrote that has likely no idea what immersive sim means or has even played DX enough to come to the conclusion its no open world DX, but its rather just using that as a fancy buzzword thinking it makes him look knowledgeable.

    > It takes liberally from its direct predecessor, The Witcher 3. It shares […] a dedication to hardcore RPG mechanics in a mainstream-oriented game

    Witcher 3 has hardcore RPG mechanics?

    I need an aggregate score from non-trans reviewers so I can make up my mind on whether to buy this game in five years time or not.
