    Genshin Impact is a whimsical, wondrous land dripping with unbridled charm and appeal, combining a ridiculously compelling reward loop with unfettered, continuous discovery. In this world I felt like a child visiting theme park for the first time — dazzled, mesmerized, and completely swept away. I only wish the shimmering glow wasn’t marred by a ghoulish monetization model, but that’s something I’m willing to overlook for my ticket to this fascinating realm.

    During my time with Genshin Impact, I fell in love with it. After only a few hours, my thoughts about what this adventure was faded away as it truly evolves into a unique experience. There’s a fine level of detail that went into crafting this beautiful world, and you can’t help but want to see every inch of it. Although the grind and the gachas systems are present, this is a game that I will gladly return to again and again. Regardless, all of this is available for free, so nothing stops you from finding out for yourself.

    Overall, in spite of things that should bring Genshin Impact down, the game is so much fun to play that the negatives are ultimately minor gripes. [...] The gameplay is smooth and simplistic, and it works great on all platforms - though I’m still not sure why the PlayStation version can’t be linked to a Mihoyo account so I could play on my phone when I’m not at home (PS Vita version please??) but it’s a small gripe to an otherwise terrific game.

    Wherever it takes you, Genshin Impact is a more-than-convincing proposition, not least for those adamant on never spending a single cent in-game. The grind to get there may not always feel wholly natural or that players are genuinely being left to wander without restraint, but Genshin Impact‘s meticulous approach to environment design above all pulls through in many wonderful ways. Crafting one of the year’s more immersive and surprisingly rich open-world RPGs.

    Genshin Impact is a stunning fantasy game that may be a potential revolution in the free-to-play genre.

    Despite its uncanny superficial similarities to a certain popular Nintendo IP, Genshin Impact has enough personality to stand on its own, while also offering a creative combat system and an expansive world to explore.

    Overall, Genshin Impact is a solid game hampered a bit by the restrictions its free-to-play model imposes. The overall production values are high, and the core gameplay is solid. In particular, the elemental interaction system is a ton of fun and gives the game a distinct personality. But while there's a lot to do, having several chunks of Genshin Impact gated off until you've reached a higher rank is an obnoxious restriction for an open-world game to have--and once you finally do see what lies in those unexplored areas, it's often a bit underwhelming. Still, it's a solid start, and I'll certainly be interested in seeing how Genshin Impact continues to evolve in future updates.

    Edit: (Most important): It is not p2w and you don't have to spend money. If someone says something else they haven't played it.
    Play it

    Play it yourself rather than believing these fools it's only a 12GB download and free.


    It is a really nice RPG you should try it. The Gacha system is only to get you some new characters, but they are in no way needed to enjoy the RPG experience.

    If people get turned off by a Gacha system, that doesn't hinder your progression and don't see that this game is at it's base a really nice action RPG than you shouldn't value their opinion.

    And the game doesn't border you with pop ups and shoves banners in your face like other gacha games, so you should view this game more like a RPG that has an optional gacha element at the side.

    Hermoso juego, hermosa historia, excelentes personajes, gran dedicación para el desarrollo y emociones de los NPC.

    Tontas son las personas
    Hermoso juego, hermosa historia, excelentes personajes, gran dedicación para el desarrollo y emociones de los NPC.

    Tontas son las personas que dan calificación negativa solo por estar furiosos de su mala fortuna en el gachapon. Para vivir la experiencia de disfrutar del mundo y las emociones de los personajes no pagas ni un centavo. Es un juego hermoso la verdad. Tontas las personas que no se dan cuenta que es normal poner micro transacciones dentro de los juegos y más tontas quienes caen en ellos sin tener dinero de sobras. Veo muy permisible para cualquier personas gastar 50 dolares solamente ya que es lo que hoy en día cuesta cualquier vídeojuegos. La verdad meterle 50 dolares está bien, pero más de eso no deberían pensarlo si es que no les sobra el dinero.

    Si tanto se queja la gente que vayan y le inviertan cientos de horas a el desarrollo de un videojuego como éste sin meterle micro transacciones para poder seguir desarrollando. Las micro transacciones son el resultado de empresas de alto renombre como EA games y Epic. No es algo que ésta empresa se haya sacado de la manga.

    Solo les digo. Disfruten el juego sin frustrarse por si no les sale el personaje que tanto querían. ésta semana hay un evento para obtener a Fischl que es uno de los personajes más deseados. El juego es nuevo y es por eso que hay tanta persona frustrada. Hay ciento de juegos con un RNG cientos de veces peor que éste juego como Subir full set BLACK STAR con Caphras en BDO. Esto no es nada y ciertamente se siente el amor que le pusieron a las voces de los personajes, al arte del mundo y diseño de los personajes.

    Es un juego realmente hermoso y vale la pena jugar como todo MMORPG sin frustarte por tener lo mejor tan pronto como puedas, porque si algo he aprendido de tantos MMORPGS que he jugado es que si te centras en ser el mejor no vas a disfrutar el juego como se debe.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Developer turning a blind eye towards their community. Pulling off amazing PR stunt. Resin cap increased from 120→160 what for? I never even cap at 120. Trash game, dont support, Mihoyo just coming up with a null solution to a big big problem like solving world hunger by giving everyone a bigger plate. Can you eat the plate? NO Expand
