Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty feels like the game CD Projekt Red set out to make all those years ago, and marks a truly great, original entry into the cyberpunk genre.
Meta 91 and OpenCritic 90 Gamespot 10 IGN 9 What a comeback! CDPR really is the best in making DLCs.
If they didn't release the original game on the old consoles I don't think the game would have the reputation that it does as the next gen versions were 'fine'. Glad to see it start to get the recognition the game deserves.
Work I agree with your comment if they had focused only on next generation consoles game would have been received better but it wasn’t fine by any means. It still needed work Case and point being update 2.0 If anything, the lesson from this should be not to announce a game or years in advance
Last gen had nothing to do with the missing advertised features, the lack of police chases, and the half done story. The different starting backgrounds which did not really change much. I like the game however lets not pretend last gen was the cause of poor writing and unfinished gameplay elements. Many games have been released on both last gen and current gen and have done just fine. Blaming the last-gen consoles must be some type of coping mechanism.
@Sashamaz - except, last gen was why Cyberpunk got hit so hard. The performance issues alone [on last gen] caused most, if not all of the negative views and hate. It is the sole reason CP77 had to dig its own grave at launch. Performance, or lack thereof in last gen versions. The side missions, writing, etc, were all reasonably decent. Shit, some of those side missions were terrific. Do yourself a favor and try digging up some last gen footage from when this game released. It was horrific. NPC faces/assets not loading in, pop in, stuttering, etc. Personally, outside a few hiccups, the type I see in games from time to time, the game was great on PS5 at launch; at least from a performance and playability perspective. But make no mistake, it was last gen that butchered this game, and it was so bad they had zero business releasing it going as far to even state as much after the fact.
A lot of sites, including IGN, gave the main game a 9/10
Too little too late…
Can't wait to play this, Well done CDPR!
Glad I held onto my original game discs. Only reason I did was that they were practically worthless on eBay after i finished the game it wasn't worth selling them.
I find Gamespot's Phantom Liberty 10/10 review to be much more exciting. IGN famously gave CP2077 a near perfect 9/10 upon release, only for Gamespot's 7/10 review to point out the faults in the original release. IGN then had to push out another review dubbed 'console review' to actually point out the faults as well. Gamespot's 7/10 to 10/10 transformation is much more rewarding.
All, finished the main story last year (saw four different endings). For the expansion, for those who finished it previously, what are your playthrough plans? Start new - play from a previous save - play PL as your end game character?
I will play as end game character. Did platinum. Don't have the patience to go through that again.
I recently replayed it and will treat this as end game. Have 1.5 million eddies, the guns I want and the style I need, lol! Good to go.
I'm going to create a new character and explore all of the changes then move to Phantom Liberty.
Glad i purchased a ps5 copy during a sale...will have to get back into it.
I want a physical* ps5 copy, hope they make current gen versions.
Excited to return to Night City. From the new updates and the new expansion I plan to do everything possible.
IGN rates an expansion a 9. I'm quite sure I will enjoy the expansion as I enjoyed the PS5 version of the original game.
This should be a precursor to what Witcher 4 is since CDPR went through some internal changes after the disaster that was CP2077 at launch. If this Cyberpunk 2.0 + DLC turns out to be a return to form, then that gives hope Witcher 4 could still be good. On the other hand if this DLC turns out to be crap, then its guaranteed the true CDPR died back in 2017 when a lot of their former long term people left.
quite the turnaround on this one, thats always cool to see
Said it since it was announced that having the game release on last gen held this game back. Glad it’s made such a big comeback
I'm genuinely exciting to play this I didn't like this game at launch playing the day 1 PS4 version on my ps5 soured my experience and I didn't see how cdpr could turn it around. Then a little after the ps5 version dropped I have it another go and it's a very solid game now and the DLC getting a 10 from GameSpot cements that. They really did recover and make a great game not just a passable One
Didnt bought the game on day one, but dirt cheap recently. With patch 2.0 I'll get the best version of the game. Cant wait to play.
I will never buy day one from CDPR again and will never pay full price for one of their games, or over pay for a $30 DLC for that matter. This DLC should be a free upgrade the amount of good will this company needs to regain. $30? Gtfo CDPR and just make the next Witcher game, a game and setting you can actually handle.
It looks like you picked your battle, enjoy!
