Roundup: Here's What The Critics Are Saying About Cyberpunk 2077

The first reviews for this week's highly anticipated release of Cyberpunk 2077 have gone live today, and as expected, they're looking (mostly) very positive! Let's see what some reviewers are saying about the game so far...

Video Games Chronicle (5/5)

"An immersive and stunningly crafted RPG, which has raised the bar for cinematic quality in open-world games. Just be aware of the bug issues at release."

VG247 (5/5)

"The final experience might be more familiar than many predicted, with plenty of elements that aren’t perfect, but it’s dripping with detail and engaging stories. With so much to see and do, Cyberpunk 2077 is the kind of RPG where you blink and hours go by, which is just what we need to finish off 2020."

Windows Central (5/5)

"Cyberpunk 2077 is an industry highpoint that, simply put, may never be bested. Right now, and without hesitation, I am overjoyed to say Cyberpunk 2077 is everything I've ever wanted from a game. It is the best game I have ever played."

IGN (9/10)

"Cyberpunk 2077 throws you into a beautiful, dense cityscape and offers a staggering amount of flexibility in how you choose to take it from there."

Trusted Reviews (4/5)

"CD Projekt Red has created a triumphant RPG experience with Cyberpunk 2077, yet it often falters under the weight of its own ambition thanks to inconsistent writing and narrative."

GameSpot (7/10)

"The side quests and the characters they showcase are the shining beacon through the neon-soaked bleakness of Night City, and they give you room to explore the best the core RPG mechanics have to offer. These are what carried me through an otherwise disappointing experience."

Polygon (No Score)

"On one hand, it’s a more earnest and sincere game than all its edgy marketing has suggested. On the other, though the word cyberpunk evokes a radical vision of the future, there’s nothing revolutionary on offer here. Instead, it’s a game obsessed with the past."

Cyberpunk 2077 currently has an OpenCritic 'Top Critic' rating of 91 based on 36 reviews. The game will be available this Thursday, December 10th for Xbox One, with a Series X optimisation patch to follow later on.
