Cyberpunk 2077 Review
Posted: 9 months ago, last updated 5 months ago.
In Cyberpunk 2077 you play as the mercenary V, who is looking for an implant that can lead to immortality. On your hunt for the implant, you'll explore the massive and dynamic Night City taking on different jobs, meeting people, and taking time for yourself. As you play and make choices the story will develop around you, from beginning to end each choice you make changes the story so that you follow a path of your own choosing.
Cyberpunk 2077 can be compared to large-budget games such as Grand Theft Auto V. The massive world provides players with the ability to play as they please but also provides a narrative for players to follow along with.
Rated PEGI 18 for Bad Language, Sex, Violence.
Rated ESRB MATURE 17+ for Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Nudity, Strong Language, Strong Sexual Content, Use of Drugs and Alcohol. Characters use handguns, machine guns, rifles, and explosives during frenetic firefights with humans and cybernetically enhanced enemies; players can also use melee weapons. Some locations depict mutilated corpses with open chest cavities and/or exposed organs/entrails. During one quest, players assist a character by hammering nails through his hands and feet; screaming sounds and blood effects accompany the scene.
Cyberpunk 2077 contains nudity and sexual material: Players can select a gender and customize their character; customization can include depictions of breasts, buttocks, and genitalia, as well as various sizes and combinations of genitals. Players can encounter events where they have the option to engage in sexual activities with other main characters or prostitutes—these brief sex scenes (from a first-person perspective) depict partially nude characters moaning suggestively while moving through various positions. Some scenes contain brief depictions of thrusting motions; other scenes depict a character's head moving towards a partner's crotch.
Cyberpunk 2077 contains frequent depictions and references to fictional drugs, including characters taking puffs/hits from a state-altering inhaler/stimulant; an animated billboard ad depicts a man snorting speed. Some sequences allow the player to drink alcoholic beverages repeatedly until the screen distorts; player's character can also drive cars while drunk. The words “f**k” and "c*nt" appear in the dialogue.
