We have searched the web for some mixed Cyberpunk 2077 reviews and we when say “mixed”, we mean it. The reviews are not all that great to start with. Many of the media outlets complain that the game is extremely buggy and it ruins the game. A few sites call it “the game of the decade” with others saying the main story is a major let down.

There’s also some reason for concern. According to reports, media outlets were only allowed to review the game on PC and when putting video content together, they were not allowed to record their own gameplay. Clearly CD Projekt RED is trying to hide something away here but you can judge that for yourself.

Gamespot – 7/10

But then it’s hard to get into Cyberpunk 2077’s world in general. So much of it is superficial set dressing, and there’s so much happening all around you–ads going off at all times, gunfights breaking out in the streets, texts coming in about cars you’ll never buy–that a lot of the game feels superfluous. The side quests and the characters they showcase are the shining beacon through the neon-soaked bleakness of Night City, and they give you room to explore the best the core RPG mechanics have to offer. These are what carried me through an otherwise disappointing experience. – Read the full review

IGN – 9/10

Cyberpunk 2077 kicks you into its beautiful and dazzlingly dense cityscape with few restrictions. It offers a staggering amount of choice in how to build your character, approach quests, and confront enemies, and your decisions can have a tangible and natural-feeling impact on both the world around you and the stories of the people who inhabit it. Those stories can be emotional, funny, dark, exciting, and sometimes all of those things at once. The main quest may be shorter than expected when taken on its own and it’s not always clear what you need to do to make meaningful changes to its finale, but the multitude of side quests available almost from the start can have a surprisingly powerful effect on the options you have when you get there. It’s a shame that frustratingly frequent bugs can occasionally kill an otherwise well-set mood, but Cyberpunk 2077’s impressively flexible design makes it a truly remarkable RPG. – Read the full review
