Cyberpunk 2077 is now totally worth playing. It may have taken over a year to say that, but as of V.131 (on PS5 at least) the game runs fine and was genuinely a treat to play.
i misread the website's name, " Trytrolling "
I'm waiting for the PS5 upgrade then I'll play.
Same here and even then I'll give them a year or so to polish it.
A polished turd is still a turd.
The Ps4 game runs a lot better on the Ps5. Plus if you can get it on sale you still get the next (current) gen for free.
I got the game for free when it was released back in Dec 2020. Just waiting for the PS5 upgrade patch. To me the game looks terrible on the PS5 with a low resolution of 1296p.
It still doesn't look that great on the PS5. I would wait for the update. The game will always be an action adventure wrapped in an openworld shell.
This was my experience. If you only play main missions like I did (stopped at start of Act 2 bc of crashes) then you don’t notice the empty window dressing of an open world it is. Great story and fun missions of what I did play though. I guess they learned their lesson gassing themselves bc the silence has been deafening.
Looks decent on PS5 considering it's a PS4 game I think, but may as well wait a couple of months now if you haven't played it yet. I played the main story, and small bits of the 2nd/3rd stories. Absolutely loved it to be honest. What CDPR do best is storytelling and that shines through if you can ignore the flaws. I think there were a lot of unrealistic expectations. I think the open world is brilliant so I'm not sure what people's issues are. Of course some areas are dead and quiet, like with any city or open world. Too many people have never played the game and watch stupid toxic Youtube vids. I know plenty of people have played the game and don't like it, fair enough, but a massive amount of people have an outrageously strong opinion that have never touched it.
I played it on series x when it came out and really enjoyed it. Driving a Porsche, hanging with Keanu Reeves in a Bladerunner esque world shooting and slicing your way through dudes - with a compelling story with meaningful choices… bugs aside I think it was top-notch. Another victim of its own hype train maybe… following the Witcher 3 is no easy task!!
I have 300 + hrs on the PS4 slim and a few hours to check the pop-in, frame-rate and stuff like that on the PS5. The game doesn't hold up to PS4 standards quite yet on either console. People say it's a PS4 game, but its actually a patched together PC game that will need a reboot. I didn't want to admit this and thought they could fix it for last gen, but they even said it will get better with newer technology. So, they can't fix it for last gen. The open world feels like a museum. Almost all interactions with the world are heavily scripted save some gang encounters, which are not meaningful enough to feel like there is much of a game outside of the main storyline. I love this game and I am disappointed by it. I would like to have at least been able to sit a noodle stand or have my character's life outside the main story matter a bit more. Like not being let in a fancy hotel when wearing nothing but some hot-shorts and spikes. I also would have liked to see a bit deeper role-play mechanics and customization, nothing extravagant just things that are offered by other games in the openworld genre. Though I do think customization should have been reasonably deep, it is a Cyberpunk game after all. At this point Cyberpunk doesn't need the open world that they built, it would have done better and have been a more complete experience in a semi-open world or an on-the-rails action adventure with some replayability woven in there.
@anast if you want to get rejected from a hotel for wearing shorts go out into the real world. You're exactly what's wrong with the criticism of the game. It's a game. There was much less interaction with people in the Witcher 3 yet it's rightfully heralded as one of the best games ever. It was never designed to be a life sim.
I'll be waiting for the alleged soft relaunch and I'll give it another chance. I found it a huge disappointment personally it started strong. But the level of polish really dropped off post the opening title. I really wanted to love it but it kind of sucked I struggled my way through ignored most side quests finished it and never touched it. Witcher 3 was allegedly bad at launch and now it's an all time great so who knows but I'm not holding my breath. Guess the main differences are that cdpr inherited a well crafted world in Witcher but in cyberpunk it was mostly their own story
With Cyberpunk, they also inherited a well crafted table-top rpg with insanely deep lore and world building. They just didn't execute.
I remember playing W3 near launch and I think it was fine. There was a cow exploit but overall, a good launch. It needed patches but all games do nowdays.
Yes it is, but it’s not anything like what was promised. Can we stop with these articles? I mean, in 2023 is this still going to be a thing? At this point you should know the answer.
Waiting for next generation patch/version
No, it's not
No matter how many patches/updates, this game will always be garbage juice.
Is talking your way through this game a valid option. Like charisma stats? I forget the “class” part even though I played an hour or so at launch. I was going to try it on fallout 3 but I might do this instead. I was waiting for the ps5 upgrade but if it works, it works.
I pre-ordered it for the XBS and it was buggy as hell and looked not much better than a 360 game. I got a PS5 (thanks to my wife) and bought it on sale for $29 for the PS4 version. It runs much better on the current gen over the last. Plus since I still have both system copies I can get both the current-gen game when it comes out for free.
Nice so you can u paid 30$ to play a beta....... Dear lord what is wrong with you people
I only paid $10, and played on PS5, so I enjoyed it.
No it should never be played. No one should give a cent to a company that rushed, released an unfinished game and took so long to make it almost playable. Let them suffer for it. I wouldn't play it even for free.
Short answer. No
If you're fine with a lukewarm and still glitchy experience. Just bring on that new Witcher 3 content I heard about.
No it isn't... now people, do you have images on n4g site? I have the site all blank on mobile and deskt.
It was weird up until a little while ago.
Yup, it's back! Thnx for reply.
I'm waiting for them to allow customization of the player character past the character creator screen. Witcher 3 had this feature...why in the world doesn't CP2077
It’s still a great game with a good story. It’s just the bugs and crashes and relatively shallow open world that suck. Once the bugs are fixed it’s pretty fun to play.
Once bitten twice shy I bought the game for XB1 I will admit some of the glitches were funny at first. I liked the EMO cab mission but then the glitches became a pain in the ass. I got tired of waiting for patches and when patches dropped it fixed some issues and opened the door to other issues. So instead of having a game collecting dust I traded it off and I was playing the game on XB1. After a year there might be people who like the game and have probably did 3 or 5 play throughs I won't touch the game with a 10ft stick. If or when the game does come to Series X/S and PS5 for me to grab the game for those consoles I would have to do serious homework on the game. Watch streams on the game on those three platforms and wait and see what people will voice about when it comes to bugs. Plus the game would need a steep discount for those platforms selling a title like Cyberpunk at full price won't make me shell out cash at full price. People who got to enjoy the game congrats you put up with the bugs and stuck by the game wish I was on that list but like I said I got tired of waiting for patches to drop.
I pre-ordered it and played it on my Xbox One S on release. The 10 hours or so I played were fun but very frustrating with the amount of bugs and glitches I had. I decided to set it aside until later. At this time, I have my Series X but I am waiting on the next-gen upgrade before I play it again. I think it will be worth playing at that point (or if you have a good PC and like mods).
It's actually a pretty good game on series X. Runs great, I didn't encounter too many bugs in what I played. Problem for me is that I can't pull myself to play more knowing the new-gen version is not far off. They really should have just delayed this until the new system versions were ready.
Nah, boo. Maaaaaybe by the time it gets a new gen upgrade.
C'mon Guys this game is boring and the gameplay / mechanics are too weak and dated. Even when they solve the bugs.
Was worth playing a year ago so yeah I'd say so. Maybe not on the old consoles though
Maybe I'll play when it eventually hits ps plus. That's a huge maybe.
Why would anyone start playing right now and at this point not just wait for the updates?
if your on pc yes play it the game is so good, for consoles wait for the upgrade this year warning: ps4 and xbox one owners DON'T BUY IT! the game is very buggy and the consoles cant handle the game in performance and look bad.
Hell no. Apparently they've got a big update planned coming out over next few weeks so vaguely interested to see what it is. Cyberpunk is an amazing idea but just terribly executed. I get the feeling that if the creative/art guys were allowed to go hog wild and given the right timeline/budget it could have been amazing. The truth is, doing an open world game (even in RPG context) is extremely difficult....and to be honest, if the game is set in a city and has cars etc, it's only really Rockstar that has done it to an amazing level (I would argue GTA IV demonstrated that best). Rockstar would have the talent to make a great RPG game if they wanted to.
