Biomutant Review | Hardcore Gamer

As satisfying its exploration is, the most striking take-away from Biomutant is just how astonishingly well it pulls off its intended tone. More so its seemingly endless and mismatched assembly of influences. The feeling that it’s one mechanic or idea away from disaster — likely to collapse into a confused mess of what was once an aspired open-world, action-adventure. But X101 have seemingly achieved the unthinkable in threading that most unfathomable of needles that is Biomutant‘s pitch.

How much are they paying you?! Jeesh, talk about transparent.

I wrote for them back in the day.
Not trying to throw them under the bus, but it was the only site I wrote for that would legitimately change the entire narrative of my reviews, and change the score.

I know the guy who ran the site, at least at the time, was tied to IGN, and that they wanted typically positive reviews overall, unless it was an unknown indie. Therefore it would have little impact to the site's ties to larger companies.

@ bumblebeeman: so how do you explain The Last of Us Part II got by far the most user voted awards as well? https://www.gameawards.net/...

I left gaming for a while and when I returned I noticed this almost immediately. No just on this site, but in general.

"As satisfying its exploration is"

Authors, come on! Does no one read what they type anymore? Gaming journalism is hard to take seriously as it is; basic grammar failure like this and from another review of this game on here make it even worse.

As satisfying as it's exploration is

KillBill1098d ago

'Satisfying as its exploration is' and 'As satisfying its exploration is' are both perfectly fine. Adding another "as" after the adjective 'satisfying' is redundant.

Which is funny because below you appear to correct it by adding another "as" into the sentence. But if you were truly trying to fix it you would simply move the first "as" to follow the adjective "satisfying" and read as "Satisfying as its exploration is". You would not have "as" both in front and after the adjective as you suggested. You created a redundancy issue. Though initial sentence might have sounded a bit odd to those that are used to hearing different 'incorrect' phrasings... it is still accurately typed.

Biomutant received a surprise release by THQ Nordic on the Nintendo Switch and while it has various compromises to run on Nintendo’s now aging Switch hardware, it is still good fun.

Good for them, I miss games like this is, was rough at some points but by now I feel it must have got better. Maybe I'm just a sucker for fuzzy things like Ratchet and Clank, and the old Conker and Jak/Dax games. Don't know, just reminds me of those times.

I played it on the PS5 in 40fps mode and it was pretty decent. Looked great, gameplay was a little but clunky at time, and fairly repetitive, but there's a large map to explore, LOADS of things to do, and you're a gun-toting, kung-fu'ing racoon !!
Accept the game for what it is, and you'll have a good time like I did.

Can't speak for how it was at launch, but the game I played was a 7.5/10

anast9d ago

I would like to see this game get a sequel with all the lessons learnt from the rocky launch and with newer tech.

Demetrius9d ago

I finished this not too long ago, definitely one of my most favorites I was really in tune with it, I didn't silence the narrator cause it always felt like I was being told a story, lol just like real life I enjoy old people telling me stories every since I was a kid I've always enjoyed that, biomutant 2 would be so mf nice to happen, definitely going for a 2nd playthrough on ps5 this time around
