CD Projekt Red returns with an incredible setting undermined by an onslaught of bugs.
There won't be another open world like this for a long, long time. At middle to long distance, Night City has no peer in terms of detail. And that includes GTA 5's sweeping Los Santos, or Red Dead Redemption 2's incredible prairies.
Glitches are everywhere. Be it characters clipping through chairs, a busker playing an invisible guitar, or cars spawning through concrete barriers, this is one of the buggiest triple-A games in years.
If you stay moving and keep your eyes trained ahead, the world is never less than believable. This is an incredible, amazingly detailed world that the in-game stories can never quite live up to.
Keanu Reeve's Johnny Silverhand is repulsive, but such is the choice the game gives you, you can change his worldview... assuming he doesn't corrupt you first. At every moment you're aware of how your decisions impact the overall story.
Though infrequent, and difficult to tell apart from the game's endless warehouse gigs, Cyberpunk's deeper sidequests are all great. Detailed and thoughtful, some are up there with the Witcher 3's most celebrated mission.
Though the game is disappointingly rote— making for dull stealth missions—gunplay feels great. Choose to go loud and amazing reload animations and devastating takedowns await.
Some nice characters and stories are nested in an astounding open world, one that's sadly undercut by jarring bugs at every turn.
