    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 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.

    -Paleta de colores increíble, a pesar de ser basada en Zelda:BOTW esta muy bien aplicada al estilo "Anime" presente en el juego
    -El uso del elementos esta muy bien profundizado, a diferencia de otros juegos donde no podemos hacer un uso completo de estos, en este podemos hacer combo y con ayuda de ciertas condiciones físicas donde el uso de elementos toma un papel importante.
    -un mapa extenso con vistas hermosas, me gustaría que hagan expansiones para alargar este mismo.
    -Los dibujos, arte y música muy bien hechos.
    -Una Historia entretenida y didáctica y misiones secundarias variadas

    Un jeu reprenant un nombre ahurissant de mechanique de de botw mais en rendant le tout p2f.
    Dans ce jeu se trouve un open word vide, peuplé uniquement de monstres "sacs a pv" qui ne font pas de dégâts et ne nécessitent aucune stratégie particulière, ainsi que de collectibles pour augmenter la barre d'endurance de votre personnage asthmatique.
    Afin de suivre l'histoire principale vous devrez, a certains stades de l'aventure errer sur la carte en tapant les mêmes monstres encore et encore jusqu'a épuisement afin de faire monter votre "niveau d'aventurier.
    cette mechanique étant uniquement la pour vous ralentir dans votre progression,.
    je dirai donc que ce jeu est une sorte de copie (même si il se détache en bien des points sur son model) de botw en rendant le jeu moins bon en tout, les graphismes sont certes bon pour téléphones mais pour ce qu'il en est sur pc, on aurait pu faire mieux. l'histoire ne semble pas être très exaltante et les méchaniques de jeu sont lassantes, on peut rajouter a cela un systeme de lootbox afin de débloquer des héros, et si vous n'avez pas le héros dont vous avez besoin, n'oubliez pas que votre carte bleue peut servir

    I only give 1 point to this just 'cuz of the sake of coders who manage to reverse engineered the Breath of the Wild really well... ProbablyI only give 1 point to this just 'cuz of the sake of coders who manage to reverse engineered the Breath of the Wild really well... Probably took them decades to do it and converting it to Unity engine from Unreal engine... Rest is just a horrific rates and incredibly expensive gacha model and the abysmally progress blocking stamina/resin system which you saw it's terrible effect after AR35, also chests not even respawn... Developers also don't give a flyin' **** and you have abolutely no way to level up your characters in normal ways which everything requires resin, resin and resin... You only enter game for 5 minutes a day and wait afterwards for 24 hours... And not only that, even if you buy the monthly boost thing, you can't even roll for gacha a day 'cuz it gives 90 and with daily quests, you get extra 60 and combine, you get 150 primogems and one roll costs you 160 primogems and since chests are not respawns, forget the rest...

    Stay away from this trap... Don't even dare to install it in your hard disk... Do not pay for it, do not get charmed by it's anime aesthetics and beautifull looking 'cuz this is a phone gacha game and a really bad and predatory one. I hope world ban it as fast as possible so we can save addicts from this ****
