    Biomutant has some wiggle room for improvements but if you are looking for a bright and colorful adventure full of cutesy names, martial arts and weirdly dark undertones, then this game is for you. If you don’t like the story, it’s not all that important anyway. This is a well-rounded good time that I would recommend for all RPG lovers.

    Biomutant is a bit of a slow burner. It took a while to get its hooks into us, but it sure did. It's not startlingly original and is a bit overburdened by its sheer scope, but we don't feel shortchanged by our forty plus hours playing it. You could do a lot worse.

    Biomutant has a lot of heart, and really tries to put out some new and exciting ideas, but eventually fails to execute them in the best possible way. It's still a fun game to play, and can become a big franchise, but the devs need to find that killer idea and shift their focus on it.

    Biomutant seeks to offer a simple and fun game, with a fast and spectacular gameplay in an open world full of secrets. Unfortunately, it is loaded with technical errors and artistic decisions that affect the gaming experience, leaving it behind other titles of its genre.

    Landing combos, and zipping around the sandbox is amusing enough, and the game’s progression systems offer the usual RPG hook. But overall it’s a case of light entertainment and not truly innovative design.

    A lot of bugs and crashes will spoil the experience. The game design and the storytelling with one camera shot never switching angle feels outdated and don't do any justice to the brilliant artistic vision and message hidden behind Biomutant.

    Biomutant is the least fun I’ve had with a game in a while. Broken, shallow, and above all, BORING. This mutant should’ve stayed in the Ooze.

It goes from less to more at all times and makes very wise decisions as soon as you delve into the video game. The narrator is the most prominent negative point but it is difficult for me to negatively assess the work of this small studio and that it has brought us an adventure of exploration that is very worthwhile.

One key differences I have noticed from playing this on the Xbox series x the world looks a bit more detailed not a drastic change only noticeable if you look .. I feel Thq did not put as much effort in to the PlayStation 4 /5 version of this game as it suffers from slight frame rate issues such as lag and stuttering , but I will say it is not as bad where it will ruin your experience .. also they choose not to add a 4K option for the Ps5 which the Ps5 is fully capable of handling it is laziness from thq Nordic .. I will have to rate the PlayStation copy slightly lower than the Xbox version

    Overall biomutant is a great game that is worth being picked up

    Fun game, great open world, awful story, terrible endings. Feels like 4 different games smashed together but still pretty fun.
