Cyberpunk 2077, arguably one of the most awaited games of all time and it recently came out on December 10. Unfortunately for me, I did not have the time to play on release date and had to wait until the weekends arrived for me to get into it.
However, I did keep my eyes and ears close to the flow of information and realised that Cyberpunk 2077 was not the game some people expected. Even Sal, who bought the game on PS4 said that it didn’t look great at all.
So I decided to give it a shot before judging the hell out of it.
Cyberpunk 2077 is not great on consoles.
Bear in mind, that I am playing Cyberpunk 2077 on the PC and from the get-go, I didn’t observe the major graphical quality issues that Sal had mentioned.
In fact, to me, it looked fantastic, but I did see that the framerate wasn’t exactly all that great but with a few adjustments; it worked pretty well with my Nvidia RTX 2060. If anything, it was too damn bright and colourful for me that I opted to a lesser optimal configuration best suited for me.
That’s when out of curiosity, I watched console gameplay videos and true enough something was off. The graphics weren’t bad, but it just wasn’t as crisp as it was on PC and the framerate wasn’t as satisfying as it should have been. Thus, I can see why some people may find it disappointing.
It does have a fair share of bugs.
As for the glitches and bugs, come on, every game that problem, especially at the start. And if you’re calling it unplayable, then you probably didn’t play Marvel’s Avengers because that game is still riddled with bugs till this day and has pretty much lost its entire player base.
If you were to compare to previous games like the Witcher 3 from CD Projekt Red, then you would also notice that it too had bugs and glitches at launch that subsequently got fixed. Asking for a game without bugs is like asking if there’s a person without a problem in life; it’s just nonsensical.
I’m not denying that Cyberpunk 2077 has some problems of its own but calling it a disaster and unplayable is unrealistic. I’ve played close to 20 hours or so on the game, and I can tell you that at its core, it’s an engaging RPG that doesn’t want to let you stop for anything.
