    Genshin Impact is part of a wave of titles from China that is slowly eroding the bad stereotype that Chinese devs are devoid of creativity and skill. While the initial comparisons are there, Genshin Impact does go beyond to distinguish itself…now if only the gacha rates and the free primogem are better I would have no hesitation recommending the title.

    Genshin Impact provides you with more content as a free to play game than most full-price titles do. With so much to offer, you can easily get lost in its lush world, fun and exciting combat, and deep exploration. Genshin impact is easily one of the best surprises of the year and should be a model for how future free-to-play titles should be constructed.

    Worst-case scenario, Genshin Impact will cost you a few hours of your life. Best-case scenario, it will be your surprise hit of the year. There are zero reasons not to at least try this title if you are a fan of action RPGs.

    Genshin Impact really is much more than a shameful Zelda clone: its open world is busy and gorgeous, its combat feels creative and it's free. For real.

    Genshin Impact is a videogame that has come to stay. Its free-to-play ARPG proposal is the answer to the wishes of thousands of users who dreamed of an anime experience this ambitious, and it is incredible to think that we have so much content available for free. If a greater depth is added to the narrative, we could be talking about one of the great surprises of 2020.

    Genshin Impact has been nicknamed "Breath of the Waifu" due to its obvious influences and cute characters. But surprisingly, the game is much more than that.

This game is 100% PvE, the characters you win for free are strong enough to overcome the obstacles that the game offers, so how is it pay to win?

    Yes, it is a gacha game, like many other mobile games. It is a mobile game that won a ps4 version. If you don't like gacha games, stay away from Genshin Impact.

    Genshin Impact is the best mobile game I have ever played.

Most of the time you'll pull useless 3 star weapons that are just material fodder. Then you have the absolute trash resin (energy/stamina) system. Literally you can play 10 minutes a day or less then have nothing left to do but wait hours for it to recharge. Wait until this game fixes its resin (energy/stamina) system to play, then maybe it'd be worth your time to give it a chance. Music is good though. Thank you to the music composers and producers on the development team. Whoever decided on the monetization and resin system is brain dead though. This game will be dead before patch 1.1 if they don't fix it. Expand
