Cyberpunk 2077 – Reviews and Bugs

CD Projekt Red has lifted the restrictions for reviews on Monday night. Aggregators like OpenCritic gave it a 92 out of 100 average score and Metacritic gave it a 91 out of 100. The PC reviews are mostly positive but the game has many bugs of diverse intensity. The game has been appreciated with all kinds of words like “fantastic,” “beautiful and dazzlingly,” “open-world masterpiece,” and many more. But, as per reviewers there are some bugs also like scripting issues which impact NPCs, reloading the game doesn’t precisely restore game state, rivals are able to see via walls, floating weapons, sound mixing bugs and many more as noticed by Windowscentral. 

Fabian Mario Döhla  from CD Projekt Red tweeted that the company is aware of the bugs and “a bunch of issues reviewers encountered (and reported) have been fixed already, some more are part of the update.” This update is satisfactory for the players who have already purchased the game and those who are waiting for the bugs to be fixed.

Moreover, the developers have announced that they are working to add a separate warning in the game apart from the one already present in the EULA. They further stated that the team is also looking for a more permanent solution and the same will be implemented as soon as possible.

Also there is a ‘streamer mode’ in the game which disables copyright music when turned on so that the gamers who are streaming Cyberpunk 2077 will not have to worry about copyright strikes for playing music which is owned by someone else.
