Cyberpunk 2077: The Final Preview

7 796
IGN's own Tom Marks got to play 16 hours of Cyberpunk 2077, and even then it only feels like we've just started to scratch below the surface of this massive RPG.
"It took me roughly six hours of playing to reach Cyberpunk 2077’s opening title card. That was six hours of the 16 I got to play earlier this week, and even after countless adrenaline-filled shootouts, compelling conversations, and weirdly abundant dildos, I feel like I only just started to scratch below the surface of what’s here. Night City is dense and stunning, and this mammoth RPG is packed with a multitude of mechanics to explore and a copious amount of choice in doing so. As with any game this ambitious and broad, some parts do shine brighter than others (and the frequent bugs in this still-in-development build made me glad it didn’t launch today as previously planned) - but once Cyberpunk 2077 kicked off in earnest, it clicked, and now I just want more." - Tom Marks
Runtime: 06:00

Am I the only one who feels disconnected from this game? Somehow not only I am not excited for this but also I dont know how to feel about it. it doesn’t bring the same feeling I got when I first saw Gta v or Red dead 2 trailer.
Is it because the game doesn’t have a direction or a statement to make or is it just me?

So many people offended by a review and quick to defend a game they’ve never played before. It’s his opinion if he doesn’t like the quest organization and bullet sponges that doesn’t mean we aren’t allowed to like the quest organization and bullet sponges. Just sayin. Chill. 💀

His description of quests actually sounds perfect for me 😅 I favor roleplaying in games and always want my character to follow the path and story they set out for themselves. Focusing on exp and misc details doesn't matter. But I understand how it can for others.

People saying "I dOnT WaNt tO KnOw WHaT My ReWaRd wIlL be" don't understand what he means. If a quest doesn't even have a basic xp amount tied to it, you'd never know what's more worth your time to do first. Imagine having three side quests and being 1000 xp away from leveling up. Wouldn't you want to know which of the three side quests are going to net you the most amount of XP thus helping you level up faster? Or at least what TYPE of upgrade/weapon? Why would I do a mindless side quest to snag a sniper rifle as a reward when that doesn't fit my play style at all?

I'm thinking the "combat sponge" enemies are going to be like a first person Tom Clancy Division type sponge. And I feel that not having rewards or difficulty shown adds a sort of realism to the game and let's you be surprised with the outcome. Eventually there will probably be online answers for what you can get from missions, but I know I won't be searching up answers like that
Joel - 21 time siden
Isn't it reasonable to expect "bullet sponge" enemies in an RPG? You're supposed to start out weak and progress to more powerful abilities. If you killed enemies with one bullet then you'd just use whatever the most accurate high capacity gun was and headshot each enemy for the entire game.

It's an RPG. All enemies are "bullet sponges", it's the nature of the genre. Can you imagine if you were able to one-shot enemies in Borderlands with a head shot with any gun?

Considering how important your lifepath choice is, a long prologue is important to immerse yourself in it. Otherwise, it would be just an afterthought, like choosing a background on fantasy rpgs where its only value as a feature is some marginal stat gain.

I just hate that it's a first person game. With the amount of character creation, and the world detail, I would've prefered to see the character in these elements. Also the physical combat just seems messy and lazy in first person. But I get that tons of people enjoy first person combat, so it might just be me...

But like isn’t bullet sponges found more on RPGs? Since there are levels usually that means a enemy can be way over your level and have higher health bars because of it.
