    Magnificent, confident and loaded with content that other games do not offer. Such is the action blast called Cyberpunk 2077. All the expectations were more than met. [Issue#308]

    Cyberpunk 2077 is an engaging experience unlike anything else. The open world mechanics are top notch and there is almost always something to do on the map. Furthermore, we have a large number of different game paths to choose from, all of which give you a very own experience of the story. Combined with the hundreds of weapons, augmentations, upgrades and side missions, there is plenty of material that will last over a long period of time. Cyberpunk 2077 will definitely be remembered as one of the most significant titles in the history of gaming media.

    Cyberpunk 2077 is the game we were waiting for: big, funny, full of quests and with a lot of RPG aspects perfectly integrated in the gameplay. Sadly it has a lot of bugs too.

    When Cyberpunk's grim setting and mix of gameplay systems land, it is a powerfully impressive experience - sprawling, dense, clever, witty, and most importantly damn good fun. Other times, it has all the charm of a moody, edgy teenager.

    Cyberpunk had the potential of being one of the contenders to the GOTY 2020 title, with an incredible city that delivers a strong atmosphere and really beautiful graphics on PC thanks to the extensive use of Nvidia RTX. On the other hand, it’s let down by under-used features and can’t live up to the hype surrounding its release, especially given the appalling technical aspect of the game, with truckloads of bugs, and very serious performance issues, even on a very powerful PC. We bet it will be the GOTY 2021 in 6 to 8 months when everything’s been ironed out.

    CD Projekt Red has created a triumphant RPG experience with Cyberpunk 2077, yet it often falls under the weight of its own ambition…Exploring Night City is an unparalleled joy, depicting a dystopian world with an unmatched level of detail in the genre. I lost myself for hours, but such immersion also unveiled a number of deeper issues with its lacklustre themes and problematic writing.

    Cyberpunk’s running time is littered with familiar problems and zero interest in their solutions. It’s a design cluttered with the failings of a hundred other designs. The safe and familiar failings of the medium that can’t be pinned to CD Projekt specifically, but are nevertheless embraced with something that feels like enthusiasm. So I sigh and carry on to the ending of my choice, looking in vain for the actual cyberpunk in a sprawl of contrived and bland sci-fi.

    When this game is firing on all cylinders, it looks nothing short of stunning. One of the big complaints with Witcher 3 was the lightingWhen this game is firing on all cylinders, it looks nothing short of stunning. One of the big complaints with Witcher 3 was the lighting engine downgrade, which had ripple effects through many other aspects of the game. Textures and geometry were also downgraded, sometimes significantly. That is not the case here. Textures look stunning. The lighting is absolutely excellent. The one minor complaint I have is with rain. Rain that falls on surfaces, like windows for example, looks good, but the actual rain itself isn't the least bit impressive. A game that did rain correctly was Arkham Knight. The rain in Cyberpunk is more like a flat, semi transparent white sheet. There is no refraction present, so I am not sure if it's a large texture sheet or clustered (or individual) raindrops. This is likely a tradeoff made to not worsen framerates. I only mention the rain because it's sort of a staple for Cyberpunk as a genre. Everything else I have seen however, looks phenomenal - including RTX features - with the downside being that RTX absolutely tanks performance. This might not be as big of an issue had we not seen what was essentially paper launches from both AMD and Nvidia - but judging from people with those cards, they are faring only slightly better.

    Optimization is atrocious. I say that knowing full well that "optimization" doesn't happen with the press of a button. It takes time. Unfortunately, CDPR didn't take enough time. GPU utilization ebbs and flows on the low end for me (2080 Super) anywhere from 25-40%, while CPU usage (3900x) is hovering nearly maxed out. RTX randomly slows the game to a crawl on a 20 series card, regardless of if I am running in 2560x1080 or 3440x1440. DLSS manages to keep the game from dropping down into single digits, but I experience regular and persistent drops into the low 20s. There are countless other issues as I mentioned earlier - NPCs floating, weird physics, disappearing or magically appearing cars, light rays flickering, light sources like muzzle flashes visible through walls, etc. These are the types of issues that, like it or not, have become baked into large AAA launches. I won't be too harsh about it, because ultimately, I fully expect that these performance issues and bugs will be addressed - and done so pretty early on. Nothing can compare to Arkham Knight's disastrous launch on PC, where WB actually pulled the game off shelves and Steam for the better part of 2-3 months, at least I hope.

    Some of these performance issues however seem to be tied in part to crowd density - which brings me to another point of contention: Just what the hell are these NPCs doing? Very few appear to have actual routines. Many are spawned in from nowhere as you enter the surrounding area and despawned when you leave. Turning around and going back and you will see completely different NPCs occupying the same spaces, clipping through each other. There are relatively few vendors that you can actually buy ♥♥♥♥ from or interact with. Contrast this with Kingdom Come: Deliverance - another game that runs rather roughly even today. KC:D's NPCs all have functions. They all have routines and jobs. Very few here do, and while the variety is far greater than what we got in Witcher 3 (with parts of faces, hair, eyes, mouths and clothes swapped around in a half dozen different configurations), it isn't difficult at all to see identical NPCs standing right next to each other.

    Furthermore, this problem affects gameplay. Cops spawn in from nowhere. Shoot someone in a closed alleyway, and watch as NCPD magically appears and starts blasting. Contrast that with KC:D, where guards would actually come from guard towers, where crimes actually had to be witnessed. The AI is also notably unintelligent. A cop can get blasted, laying on the ground, while another cop stands there bored. Shooting in public will make half the NPCs cower down, while the other half walk about like nothing has happened. Can we really call this next gen with a serious face? I understand that implementing any sort of real solution to a game of this scale would be problematic, and I am confident that I don't have a solution - but Cyberpunk's multitude of issues with NPCs and AI should frankly be an complete embarrassment for CDPR. Even worse than that is that it isn't something that will likely be fixed quickly (or possibly even at all without official modding tools, as that would require some major AI and scripting changes.)

    As such, at this point, I am honestly more inclined to say wait a month and see how things progress.
