TechRadar’s official Cyberpunk 2077 review – https://www.techradar.com/uk/reviews/cyberpunk-2077
Hotly anticipated for the best part of a decade, Cyberpunk 2077 is finally here, and it’s as rambunctiously detailed and gorgeous as the trailers suggest.
CD Projekt Red has added another inimitable RPG to its library, one that you could easily sink tens of hours into over the course of many months, eking out every hair-splitting detail.
It’s easy to recommend if you need a big game to tide you through the holiday season, especially if you can look past the present mechanical hiccups and a somewhat compromised narrative.
In Cyberpunk 2077, you play as V, a mouthy merc who will do whatever it takes to become a living legend in Night City. Unfortunately, that also means harboring the long-dead spirit of Keanu Ree-, sorry, Johnny Silverhand, a washed-up rockstar terrorist who is slowly taking over their mind. Hi-jinks ensue!
When you get your hands on the game, the scale of Cyberpunk 2077 will no doubt make you anxious. We’ve spent 45 hours poring over the majority of its content and experiencing three of its endings, and our map screen is still nowhere near clear. But this is no cause for concern — because when it comes to RPG quest design, CD Projekt Red is the best in the business.
Even the most inoffensive of enemy encounters has a story behind it in Cyberpunk 2077, which makes exploration fundamentally awesome. Thanks to the scope of the setting, you never really know who or what you’re going to stumble into next. A burger date with a criminal messiah or a black market braindance exorcism? Even the rowdy racing missions are good fun. Curious delights await the most inquisitive players, and you’ve always got options in how you want to approach them.
It’s very easy to spend 30+ satisfying minutes quick saving and quick loading your way through one combat segment to get the right sequence of events you had mapped out in your head. You’ll sear your synapses over a dubious dialogue choice in an otherwise unimportant side mission just because the framing is so interesting that you care about the outcome.
It’s that Witcher witchcraft that the Polish developer is famous for that makes what is banal in other open-world games exhilarating here. We kept saying we’d crack on with the main missions in the interest of completing the game quicker, but every time we finished one, we’d get dragged away into a four-hour desert stupor of superb side quest after superb side quest.
