The oft-delayed Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the biggest games of 2020. But with a big launch comes big hype. In the few weeks since its release, developer CD Projekt Red has come under fire and publicly apologized, for the game’s technical performance on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, in addition to the usual hilarious and not so hilarious bugs that often ship with big open world games. Refunds have become so prevalent on console that Sony pulled the game from the PlayStation Store.
Judging from these headlines and more, you may think Cyberpunk 2077 is an unmitigated disaster. Even the New York Times wrote about its problems. The game is far from perfect, but there’s also a lot to love from this open-world RPG-shooter.
