Cyberpunk 2077?

Why People Disappointed in Cyberpunk 2077?

Because it is not as good a game as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, to put it simply, CD Projekt Red hit a home run with The Witcher 3. They made a fantastic single-player RPG set in a vast open-world that felt real, felt lived-in, felt fully fleshed out. The main story was gripping. The side quests were uniformly entertaining and felt organic to the world in which they existed. There were some technical hiccups, a few features that didn’t land so well, but on the whole, it was a labor of love, and it showed.

Cyberpunk 2077 doesn’t have any of that. I like the game, and I was hyped for it just like anyone else who follows video games and played The Witcher 3. It pains me to say it, but this game is just not nearly as good as CDPR’s last outing. It is serviceable, but little more than that. That might be okay in the long run. It’s hard for even the very best to outdo themselves every single time out. But in the short term, there is a tangible disappointment from a lot of people.

What’s went wrong?

Well, first and foremost, the game was released well before it should have been. That will always create disappointment, especially when bugs and glitches destroy immersion or, even worse, break the game’s functionality. Cyberpunk is guilty on both counts, there. And before anyone reacts unfavorably to that statement, I understand that a large, open-world game like this requires a certain amount of player “beta-testing” after release.

But at its heart, for all CDPR’s ambition, they just whiffed on a whole lot of things here. And it’s not hard to see where. GTA and other open-world games have created certain expectations when making an open world, and those bars were met very scarcely and far between. 

Lessons Learned from Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 offers valuable lessons, particularly regarding its nonlinear challenges. The designers emphasize three key points that developers should bear in mind: distance, isolation/exclusivity, and justification.

In essence, the central concept revolves around presenting a clearly delineated isolated path. Furthermore, it is crucial to invest more time in assessing the potential outcomes of various decisions within the game.

In practice, this concept can manifest as designated entry points to specific routes. Such an approach alters players’ choices and delimits their field of view. This offers developers a golden opportunity to focus on distinct types of gameplay.

What is the Latest Update for Cyberpunk 2077?

As of August 2023, significant strides have been made in enhancing Cyberpunk 2077’s technical aspects over the past two years. Previously, actions like tearing off a man’s legs resembled a scene from a battlefield medic, but the game has evolved beyond mere mortality. The initial 2020 version of Cyberpunk 2077 lasted a mere 10 hours; however, with the latest updates, it now operates seamlessly. Tracking functions flawlessly, and smoother frame rates accommodate the game’s slower shooting and driving sequences.

The multitude of bugs that once plagued Cyberpunk 2077’s missions have become far less conspicuous. Many major issues, such as cars and bikes hurtling off the screen, have been effectively resolved—though not without minor glitches persisting.

Why Do People Dislike Cyberpunk 2077?


A substantial portion of players harbored disdain for the game due to its glitch-ridden launch, which led to its removal from the PlayStation Store. The last-generation version of the game was riddled with numerous problems, prompting post-release reviews that assigned abysmally low scores, ranging from three to four out of ten. However, it’s worth noting that newer updates have rendered a less buggy version playable on computers. Regrettably, the last-generation edition was marred by an abundance of game-breaking bugs and visual anomalies.

Sony pulled the game from its store just eight days after its launch, issuing refunds to purchasers. Moreover, it’s worth highlighting that once a download has commenced, PlayStation’s policy disallows refunds for games.

Nevertheless, Platkow – Gilewski must now strive to regain player confidence. They remain steadfast in their belief that, even three years after the release of the latest expansion aimed at revitalizing the original game, Cyberpunk 2077 will ultimately fulfill the decade-long promise it initially held.
