If then everything has to burn to the ground, let it burn.
I was probably not the only person who read every single review Cyberpunk 2077 on Monday night. Between articles in major publications such as IGN, PC Gamer, Polygon or our domestic FZ, and influencers on the tube as Madqueen Show (which has terribly good lore videos) and The Neon Arcade there is a lot of impression available. You can also find more or less salty debates about the review status, the conditions around the reviews, criticism of gaming journalists and more. It’s crazy out there!
At the time of writing, Varvat does not have access to Cyberpunk 2077 and given how extensive the game is, it would be unrealistic to claim that a review could be published within a week of release. That’s why we choose to try something different this time. In a series of short diary entries, we will mix creative writing and critical game analysis. A kind of cyberpunk diary from the player character’s perspective interspersed (pun intended) with reviews. In this way, as a reviewer, I get an outlet for my creativity and the opportunity to divide the review into manageable and relevant paragraphs.
We can highly recommend our guides Everything we know about Cyberpunk 2077 – Cyberware, as well as Attributes, Skills and Perks while waiting for the installation of the game and the patches to be completed.
At the end of the diary series, all analyzes are put together into a coherent review with grades. Even if the diary method does not give you as a reader a direct overall picture of Cyberpunk 2077 we think these will serve as excellent first impression sections you can supplement with other reviews.
