    Kinda sad that the FPS aspect wasn't as comparable to Fallout 4, which is saying something considering that game is spewing in its own mediocrity. I'd never understand why they didn't try to emulate the combat from E.Y.E.: Divine Cybermancy rather than creating a subpar combat system found in other large budget AAA titles.

    The game is barely glued together, they had to strip down some systems to bare minimum in order to make them somewhat work - adding multiplayer on top of this mess doesn't sound like a good plan. As of now it needs months, if not a year, of patching and overall is missing like 4 years of development to be what it was supposed to be.

    Multiplayer may work in a game that is lackluster in terms of content but a has a solid core - as in gameplay.

    This idea that they can just slap multiplayer into the game is pretty interesting. I wonder how much work has even been done on it so far or if it's just the marketing department talking shit they know nothing about.

    supposedly they were redoing w3 until 2016. 3rd person perspective and so on. Then Adam Badowski came and forced everyone to make fps instead

    based on a number of articles with employees anonymously crying, actual coders estimated game to be done by 2022 as it was supposed to be, after content cuts if I got it right

    Seriously. Either quote that shit in there so you have a post worth reading or don't bother posting at all. Writing shit like "I disagree" or "I agree" is just an empty shitpost if you don't bother adding anything of substance to it. Even on Usenet you would've gotten shit on for vacuous posts like that, because shit like that is basically spam and in no way contributes to the discussion.

    :nocountryforshitposters:

    If you don't see the problems with the review that says a lot about the depth of your insight, honestly.

    Also, fuck the sycophants (re: YouTubers and rags) that awarded this game 10/10 and then jumped (stayed?) on the bandwagon when popular opinion changed.

    The fact that online influencers exist, and that they're stupid as fuck, is one of the more cyberpunk elements of our time.

    I agree with all the points of the review except for the point about the story and writing. Both are shite. Perhaps, it's not the Fallout 4 level of shite. But it's closer to it than, say, to Witcher 3.

    If it's anything like TW3 in game Gwent and standalone Gwent, it may very well be the end of the company.

    I like reviews that over explain the game mechanics and don't focus on story and setting.

    so far we got people that
    - agree
    - disagree with positive elements I found
    - evaluate my review as being worse than actual game

    In general votes claiming I bashed game too hard are absent, unless you count felipe claims that it will be fixed and become 2022 goty. I mean if he proclaims cp77 to win 2022 codex goty already then he is probably right :popcorn:

    Uhmm.. what?

    I've driven down a sidewalk for an hour - mowing down half of night city underneath my bumper, I have never seen a police chase..?
    I get chased by drones for 2 seconds with the detected_noise.wav sounding out, followed by instantly escaping, followed by more teleporting police and a new "chase", and an instant escape, as long as I hold down on the gas..

    What police chases..? It's easier to reload...??? What game were you talking about?

    This part of the review feels like a head larp..
    "Better hope there are no police around" it's basically 100% guaranteed outside Pacifica that magically appearing drones always detect a murder.

    Please correct this review ASAP. How many złoty were you given for this?

    I don't know about prologue but out of curiosity i checked Steam and Playstation achievements regarding main story completion.
    Steam - 27%
    PS - 19%
    Because they like to wait and to hype way more than to play.
    Also that's why we can't have nice things ofc

    27% main quest completion seems really high.

    The review captures the spirit of Cyberpunk perfectly. Confusing mess of individual systems of varying quality that never really meshes well together.
    Excellent piece of meta commentary, :5/5:
    lukaszek. I have added to the GoG Gorasul wishlist in your honor. :salute:

    The main quest is surprisingly good, much better than exploring a shitty GTA clone.
    Strangely completely inverted from W3 in that fashion. That had lame main quest and good side quest, this has good main quest and lame side quests.

    I hope they ditch that MP game. They'll miss making a worthy game in next 10 years otherwise.
