The Verdict: Cyberpunk 2077

You can tell this is an authentic Slavic game — note the heels are touching the ground in V’s “slav squat”.

When I took the above screenshot in Cyberpunk 2077’s Photo Mode, I didn’t realise that I had unintentionally captured the essence of the player experience. A beautiful vista, irrepressible style; but closer inspection reveals a certain lack of fidelity, and the word “broken” in graffiti. Cyberpunk 2077 is fundamentally a great game, with a lot of redeeming qualities. But it is also a deeply flawed game that has a long way to come.
