    Cloudpunk is obviously a game made with great love and care. It shines through the visuals, the soundtrack, the city, and most especially the characters. Huxley, Camus, and Ben are easily some of the characters in any video game yet released in 2020. The gameplay is not particularly deep but it is solid and enjoyable in its relaxing way. While Cloudpunk does have a few minor faults (mainly the camera), none of them detract away from what is otherwise a wonderful experience. Get your multipass ready, it’s time to go for a ride.

    Cloudpunk is simply the best way to wait for Cyberpunk 2077 with its gorgeous city, its intoxicating atmosphere and a very well-written adventure. A must play this spring.

    A huge city in a state of entropic decay to explore, a diverse and memorable cast to meet, and an engaging new spin on adventure game navigation make for a highly compelling sci-fi experience in Cloudpunk.

    Cloudpunk is a beautiful cyberpunk adventure when it comes to exploring the city and knowing every little story among its neighborhoods and sky roads. It is a shame that some of its gameplay mechanics are not funny or coherent. Ultimately, the game is worth it for the lore, the characters and the story that will motivate us to play until the end.

    Like some of the narrative choices, it’s hard to know how to feel about Cloudpunk — and maybe that’s the point. It’s well-written and lovingly constructed, but it’s sometimes hard to appreciate as much as I’d like to thanks to the pacing issues. However, despite the problems, it’s definitely a journey worth taking — just go into it knowing that a little patience in some spots is required.

    In the gameplay department, Cloudpunk simulates the boredom of a minimum wage job a little too well. Looking back, I’m happy to have played Cloudpunk, but I never want to sit through it again.

    For Cloudpunk, hardship is merely the wallpaper for a pretty yet thinly conceived gaming experience.

At times it can be a bit tedious (walking a lot, waiting for elevators, cars crashing into you), but that doesn't take away from the overall magnificence of the game. The story is thrilling, the characters are lovable, and the graphics are gorgeous. While the voxel art-style did throw me off, you get used to it and learn to love it. The soundtrack is also phenomenal. Couldn't recommend it more. Expand

    Jogo com foco em uma história bem envolvente e muitos personagens interessante, gameplay simples (quase um walking simulator com visual novel)Jogo com foco em uma história bem envolvente e muitos personagens interessante, gameplay simples (quase um walking simulator com visual novel) e visual todo em voxels.

    Pontos positivos:
    + História e personagens;
    + Atuação;
    + Ambiente da cidade realmente passa a sensação de opressão, a música ajuda muito nisso;
    + Realmente torci por alguns personagens.
    + Não é muito longo, uma vantagem para esse tipo de game.

    Pontos negativos:
    + Tem uma missão paralela que envolve coletar muitos itens pela cidade para ajudar um android a recuperar a memória. Fala que é 20, do que depois é mais 20 e mais e mais. Mesmo com uma trama bacana, escolhi abandonar essa.

    It was a good idea but its just too short and if its possible for a short game, repititive. Drive from point A to point B then park and walkIt was a good idea but its just too short and if its possible for a short game, repititive. Drive from point A to point B then park and walk to someone, deliver and rinse and repeat. There are a few missions within the main story that deviate from this but they don't bring much to the table.

    After playing this for around an hour you'll feel like everything you are seeing is the same as you park in another identical car park and walk an identical route with very little in the way of interaction.

    The only side mission I could find in this game was one where you had to find 80 punch cards in increments of 20 then just give them to an android woman outside you apartment to hear a story.

    One thing that is really going to annoy you in this game is bumping into oncoming flying vehicles because it will happen a lot at least in the first hour. Worst of all the whole game is completed in one day (game time). Just as you are ready to start Day 2 after your first sleep the game ends!

    Nice idea just way too short and sorely lacking in any real interaction with the world or its inhabitants.

    Pretty but tedious and boring. Story has no focus or tension, filled with pretentious dialogue and pointless characters with terrible voicePretty but tedious and boring. Story has no focus or tension, filled with pretentious dialogue and pointless characters with terrible voice acting. Gameplay is non-existend, exclusively drive von point A to B. Would have worked as a form of walking simulator with a good story, which it hasnt. On Foot sequences are absolutely terrible, slow, wonky and with camera issues. Don't bother playing this just for the atmosphere, you will be bored pretty fast. Expand
