Installed it again just to check out the improvements of 1.5.  started as a street kid this time around.  For some reason the game is looking washed out in yellow.  I've set everything to ultra, remeber the game to be much more vibrant when i played it at launch :-/

It's still is vibrant. Even more so. 

Just update your driver and if you have HDR monitor then turn it off.

The following is just my opinion about the game (May contain Spoilers so tagging it)

Spoiler

Some things that made CP2077 a lesser game for me (And I was playing on PC Ultra so discounting the console mess).

 

First the positives -

 

The positives - 

 

1) Absolutely amazing graphics. The game is definitely a looker.

 

2) Driving is really fun. I really loved driving around in the city.

 

3) Stealth and Blades Gameplay was pretty decent and fun. Guns were decent.

 

Now for the negatives -

 

1) The questing system was a mess, and quests/major side quests were clearly incomplete or rail-roaded you into very specific endings. Judy's story for example. Too much incompleteness. For example, what were the Moxes doing during the entire Cloud Fiasco (Judy was also a member/ex-member of the Moxes). Completely ignored, and all endings for the Cloud were pretty bad. This was a major side quest on top, and just 1 example. Witcher 3 did not have this kind of problem.

 

2) The World felt dead. Yes, the game had mind-blowing graphics, but seriously - nothing extra to do. Apartments are a nice touch, but the World itself felt dead. Taking Witcher 3 again as an example, there is no Gwent Equivalent, not much NPC Routines I could see, and not much sudden mind-blowing surprise discoveries either.

 

3) There was not much cyber-punkinshness going on. Yes, they tried to superficially re-create the Cyberpunk look, but it was seriously, not very Cyberpunkish. Deus Ex, for example - felt more like a proper Cyberpunk game in both story and gameplay. 

 

Comparing just with Witcher 3 (and nothing else) - these kinds of things made this a far lesser game for me.

Fair enough criticism!

I dropped the idea of buying it after playing 5 hr demo. 

 

Felt like on the rails despite being open world. Too scripted.

 

Graphics were superb on Series S. Generally game felt very polished at this point.

Yeah even if you could chalk up #2 to the dev lack of experience w.r.t open world games, #3 was a huge letdown.  You can literally play and complete the game without any of those cybernetics.... i would also add the leveling system/perk tree which mostly felt useless to me, like x% improvement, y% improvement etc, they could've done so many cool/intresting stuff with it instead, considering the game genre.  

 

I'm playing thru the second time, installed it a few days back, once you know all the shortcomings, its more enjoyable :lol:

Why would they lack experience in open world games when they made Witcher 3 which is basically the template for every single open world pseudo RPG thats come out ever since.

The game plays very linearly in the intro which runs for close to 6 hours. The game opens up after that.

 

CDPR probably wanted to lure people with the fancy graphics and cutscenes in the 5hr demo. It's actually in the open-world sections that the game's flaws become more apparent.

Witcher 3 was more of an rpg, the open world was not the highlight of the game, and the previous Witcher games were pretty linear with very small open areas.

 

Cyberpunk was advertised as an open world action game and the dev lack of experience clearly shows.

In this environment, every single tech stock has crashed. Even successful companies like Nvidia, take 2, etc have crashed from their highs. Nvidia is 50% down from its high for example.

Ok, that's unfortunate. 

Still, CDPR dropping more than others is still a sliver of joy.

Don't know where to post this but I was watching 1st EP of Edgerunner on Netflix, just ~15 mins in drives home the point that  what a sh*t place Night City is to live with all it's AnCap chutiyapa going on, I guess it's because the anime is from the PoV of some random poor kid and his poor mom, not some gun toting mercenary and the Keanu Reeves ghost in his head :rofl:

Night City is utter sh*t equally for everyone. Even if you are a Gun-Toting Mercenary with a Corpo Life Path (The Best you can get) - the city is still sh*t. The only ones for whom the city is not sh*t (In a conventional way) are the head homchos like Arasaka and his closest followers - and even for them it's sh*t in a different way.

 

Game hammers that point.
