Cyberpunk 2077 falls short of gamer expectations

16 Dec, 2020 Reviews 185 0 Comment

Gamers across the globe had set their sight on the 10th of December. After all, one of the most awaited launches of the year was to happen on this date: the Cyberpunk 2077 was touted as the next big thing from CD Projekt Red, after their massively successful 2015 action RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which unanimously won many awards. The stakes were high and so were the expectations of ardent gamers.

With so much hype around this launch, Cyberpunk 2077 unfortunately could not live up to the expectations of gamers and reviewers alike. For starters, users have complained at the onset about recurring bugs, which abruptly hinder a seamless gaming experience. This, coupled with a disappointing frame rate, results in a visual travesty on a PS4. This poor frame rate causes recurring delays in taking actions, and the game shockingly forgets the player’s preferred driving camera setting.

It is no secret that this game has been under development for eight years and most users believe that the bulk of attention has gone in to create an immaculate storyline, without much attention to detail towards the actual running of the game. The graphics have generally been termed as mediocre at best and even with a 15 GB update received a couple of days ago to the existing 32 GB setup, the overall responsiveness leaves much to be desired. Google Stadia users however, had a better experience, as the game runs rather seamlessly on both android and PC versions of stadia, and on both 5G as well as WiFi.

Overall, Cyberpunk 2077 does not seem to have lived up to the expectations of gamers, who were looking forward to a better experience, as a lot had been promised over the period of this game’s development. Little wonder then that post receiving flak for its multiple glitches, players have been getting full refunds for their digital copies on Xbox, PlayStation and Steam. While Sony does not have a functional return policy for its games, Cyberpunk 2077 seems to be an exception, given the rampant outrage among players regarding quality issues.

And it seems all this has rightfully resulted in a post-upheaval announcement from Cyberpunk 2077, where the company has tweeted from its official handle about its decision to introduce two major patches in the upcoming two months, to address the niggles faced by gamers, particularly on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox. While next-level graphics might not be on the cards yet, players can certainly expect better finesse in their experience.
