    ANNO: Mutationem is an exciting and welcome addition to the world of cyberpunk gaming. The amount it presents within the short timeframe is astonishing. There's always something to keep you attentive, whether it be the gorgeous pixel art, the enjoyable boss fights, or the deep narrative. Yet, ANNO does well to not overstay its welcome and instead presents a beautiful experience that engulfs you into a different reality.

    ANNO: Mutationem features rich gameplay, a twisted story and smooth combat. With its unique pixel style, it offers a cyberpunk world worth exploring.

    Excellent, punchy side-scrolling combat against diverse and interesting enemies is almost enough by itself to make Anno: Mutationem an easy recommendation. When you add in the neon urban sprawl of Skopp City, bursting with flavor and character around every corner, it gets even easier. An unwieldy plot and less than amazing script show that if the project was missing one thing, it was probably an editor. But none of that stopped me from thoroughly enjoying all the things it did well.

    ANNO: Mutationem is the classic half-baked cake: excellent in its premises, flawless in some aspects, but weak in others.

    With its impeccable artistic direction, ANNO: Mutationem houses an animated universe that is very pleasant to browse for its superb pixel-art in 2.5D and its bluffing depth. Too bad the storyline it houses, though prominent in experience, is so disjointed and hard to follow. The experience makes up for it with a good RPG dimension and its correct combat sequences if not fully sensational.

    ANNO: Mutationem definitely has its charm in its niche aesthetic. The amalgamation of 3D environments with the 2D sprites works quite well with the cyberpunk setting, evoking a pleasant PS One feeling. It’s a shame then that the story is derivative and nonsensical in many ways. It doesn’t help that the action is borderline generic albeit there is a commendable effort for an expansive bestiary of regular mobs and bosses.

    ANNO: Mutationem had a lot of promise, but ended up spread far too thin. Both the exploration and combat lack any sort of depth, the story is nonsensical, and the sprite work looks ugly in motion.

I gave it a 10 so that people will play it. It's a fun change of pace that i play when im trying to chill and not grind a lot.

    Story wise, im not doneyet so i wont let the ending change my ranking, but its fun story so far.

    fighting is okay, kinda repetitive at times, but bosses are hard enough to make me get up in my seat and focus

    overall 8+/10 and I'd recommend buying the game and helping out the dev.

    After this I think I'll play Ghostwire Tokyo and review that. Just wanted to shout out this game for actually being pretty fun

    It gets pretty tedious the longer you play, janky UI, story is uninteresting and features lots of obnoxious dialogue, cutscenes can at leastIt gets pretty tedious the longer you play, janky UI, story is uninteresting and features lots of obnoxious dialogue, cutscenes can at least be skipped, input lag which makes it a real pain to play with some bosses, at some point the controller flips twin stick direction in at least one big boss fight, lock picking is another annoyance, map is useless most of the time, side missions are hard to figure out what to do, bugs, annoying auto lock on with the gun, very generic uninteresting upgrading of weapons, junk collecting galore, shallow dress selection about 6-7 total, bland characters which I don't care about in the least, definitely needed a western game consultant.

    The pixel graphics are nice, nice 2d/3d switching like Nier Automata, world is interesting to explore but not much there in the end. Overall it's a decent game but all the jank just adds up over time to where it outstays its welcome somewhere past half way or so. Needed more actual gameplay and a lot of polish that I'm not sure the team is capable of themselves. I wouldn't pay full price for it. This is rated as mixed on steam so I conclude there is just shills on here, like so many other reviews here.
