What next?

Cyberpunk 2077 was the most eagerly anticipated game of the year, but it looks to have fallen flat.

Glitches, indifferent reviews and two Day One patches suggest the game isn't quite the finished article despite a series of delays.

Initial Response

We were all excited for the launch, but early access reviewers have far been bowled over by the CD Projekt Red release.

Andrew Reiner of Game Informer cited frequent bug plus the infamous "T-Pose":

“Not since The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim have I played a game that is riddled with so many graphical bugs at launch,” Reiner commented. “The danger of entering a seedy bar loses its bite when one of its patrons stands motionless in a T-pose.”

Only a few have been brave enough to score Cyberpunk, and although IGN gave it a 9/10, Gamespot only deemed it worthy of a 7/10.

Polygon's review by Carolyn Petit states: "This is what I least expected about Cyberpunk 2077: that its notions of “cool” are so tied up in the digital persona of a past-his-prime rocker that the game sometimes feels like looking through your uncle’s musty record collection while he talks about how great the Rolling Stones are.”

Help yourself

Despite its issues, there is something you can do yourself to improve the gameplay on Cyberpunk 2077.

As flagged on Reddit by u/iwishuwood. adjust your controller setting can remove any input delay which has been making the game feel sluggish.

In your controller settings turn on advanced options.

Turn your horizontal and vertical turning bonuses all the way to 0.

This setting applies extra sensitivity when the stick is pushed all the way.

The comments section on the Reddit post reads:

"Yeah, those are really weird settings to have on by default. Does anybody even like having that? They really threw me off."

What next?

We'd imagine Projekt Red will add a further patch in the coming days to at least nerf this, and have the default settings offering a much more balanced feel.

We're sure plenty of Cyberpunk news will be flying around the web, so don't expect this to be the last of the criticism.
