    Genshin Impact is an amazing open-world adventure that draws heavily on both its Breath of the Wild and anime inspirations to create something truly special. Even if the gacha model introduces some undesirable level grinding deeper in, the excellent combat, addictive exploration, and beautiful world make this one of the most exciting games I've played all year.

    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.

    At present, Genshin Impact is still a pleasant and frenetic action RPG, which thanks to the presence of a titanic open-world map full of secrets and secondary activities to be traced has been able to elevate the exploratory component to the backbone of the entire infrastructure.

    What Genshin Impact offers for free - and promises down the line - is the best bang for your buck in gaming today.

    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.

People ay the game is only a month, consider the open beta test! It is clear that your low marks so that the developers would pay attention, but this behavior on your part does not make them better!
    Yes, playing on PS4 does not like a lot, but I'm sure they will fix everything. And that our optimization is worse, and we cannot enter promotional codes, and many other points! The game does not oblige you to pay money, I went through all of it before update 1.1 on Starting characters, accumulating free currency! Not in one game I have not seen so many freebies handed out! Yes, I will buy monthly cards, but this is in order to support the creators of the game!
    Dear Developer, I wish you success in your endeavors !!!

In the other side; problems with perfomance can be solve with the time ; so it's stup#d be angry for this now. Only play the game if you like it. If not use good reasons to put a bad rating Expand

    The game is good but monetization in Brazil is abusive, which amazes players who could spend little in the game

    Everything about this game is good except one thing, Resin problem! Everything you do needs a resin, and the amounts of items drop per resinEverything about this game is good except one thing, Resin problem! Everything you do needs a resin, and the amounts of items drop per resin needed are measly!!! And when you are farming artifacts, you are locked with RNG, main stats need RNG to get what you want and even the sub stats need an RNG too to get perfect stats. There have been a lot of complaints about it, be it CN players or global players... They said that they have listened to our voice, but guess what? Instead of increasing the rate of resin regen, we get increased resin cap instead!? We asked for more water but given bigger cup?? How does that make sense? If we are not getting an increase in regen rate then bigger cap does not change anything. Previously we need to log in twice a day, burn resin in 10 minutes for trash items and log out, now they give us a QoL that is you only need to log in once a day, burn your resin in 10 mins and don't bother play the game again until the next day at the same day time. This is the problem of endgame players with slow content updates from developers, until they truly listened to players' voice, this review stands at 0 rating! Expand
