The moment we have been waiting for is now a reality. We can finally review Cyberpunk 2077 and it proves that CD Projekt RED's RPG exceeds all expectations. Welcome to Night City, are you ready to live the greatest adventure of your life? Read on!
Cyberpunk 2077 the most anticipated game of the generation
CD Projekt RED's title has been becoming the most anticipated title by users for years. Every time they released a picture or a new video, the hype only increased. That's all over now because we can finally enjoy it... And it was everything we were waiting for!
Night City, the city in which the adventure of this role-playing game takes place, is set in the year 2077 in a dystopian future in which neon lights and metal, disguise a gloomy and dangerous atmosphere in which life no longer has the value it had in the past. A future in which technological implants are fashionable and presents us with a society in which values have changed and surviving another day is almost an achievement. Welcome to Night City, enjoy!
The story and its characters
Without going too much into this section to avoid spoilers, the game tells the story of V, which is happening as if it were a movie ... Because what a plot it has, as if it were the best Hollywood super production
And most importantly, the relationships that we will have during the adventure. Dozens of characters that will cross V's path will leave us marked. At the beginning, the game manages to create a bond of friendship - as if he were our brother - with Jackie Welles, a drug dealer we meet at the beginning of the adventure. And from this point on, the story begins to unfold and we will meet all kinds of characters, whom we will love and hate. And even some of them provoke both reactions.
And now let's go deeper into the game
We start making our character thanks to a super complex editor that allows us to select everything: piercings, tattoos, body, face, hair, penis.... It's amazing. We do it at our whim. It took me more than half an hour to set it up the way I wanted.
And once we have him ready, we select his starting story and the adventure begins.
Graphically it is a masterpiece. We have analyzed the PC version and it is brilliant. The textures, the lights, the shadows, the definition of the characters and the environments... Outstanding. When you see the city (the game is a sandbox) and move through it you won't believe it, it's alive and huge! Hundreds of characters on screen, each with their own life. There are stores, cars driving around, people in their houses, smoke... It is the best simulation of a city that has ever been made in a video game. A city that exhales smoke, sex, neon lights and violence.
And in the end it is still a role-playing game, so make decisions and pay attention to the consequences. Whatever you do has repercussions, so choose well what decisions you are going to make and of course, choose who are your allies and your enemies. All this will change the course of the story and modify how the rest of the characters relate to us. It's like living a futuristic life through an avatar.
And fulfill your missions. Choose them, overcome them and earn money. Buy better weapons and equipment, or just get cool clothes to go out for a walk and enjoy all the sin that Night City provides.
You can move around the gigantic map on foot or by car. When you go by car the camera is in third person and if you walk the camera changes to first person view as if it were a shooter. This view allows us to aim at our opponents in combat to the head or limbs ... Yes, aim well because you may not have many opportunities to make another shot.
In addition to stealth or initiate a shootout, we can do hacks to have advantages during combat, to simply distract an enemy and attack him from behind. The possibilities are endless! It depends on how you want to resolve each conflict.
and Keanu Reeves?
Johnny Silverhand, the character played by Keanu Reeves is a fundamental piece in the game, he catches us by his appearance, a flawless interpretation and masterful lines of dialogue full of epic phrases (the dubber is the same as the actor. Because yes, the game is perfectly dubbed into Spanish).
Johnny and V are two sides of the same coin. If V represents brains, Johnny is pure instinct, vice and madness; he has an undeniable appeal that extends beyond the character.
His moments in the story are undoubtedly the ones that will grab us the most.
A wild and daring game, with a cinematic script and that is full of action, vice, sex and violence. A game that you will enjoy like no other and that will make you live a unique and innovative experience. In short, Cyberpunk 2077 is the game of the year. A game that you have been waiting for a long time and that you have to have without a doubt.
- The relationship with the characters
- Decision making
- The technical aspect in its PC version
- Johnny Silverhand
- Maybe the soundtrack lacks a great theme that we will remember after finishing the game over the years.
