What happened is noise created by people and reviewers who feel entitled and with level of shallowness that is equal to the glitches and bugs in very single open world game made to date.

Selective memory as it's easier to join the hate bandwagon on YouTube, Also they need the clicks and subscriptions to make those Eddies. No better then Corpo's.

Flawed, yes it is.
Noone is blind, the game has bugs.

But fatally? Sorry but… A game with more than 100 hours of conent… DIFFERENT content, not grinding some same idiocy…
1. No crashes to desktop (on my side)
2. No gamestopper that would permanently lock the game progress
3. No impossible to solve sidequest (TBH 3-4 needed a sort of a workaround)

Yes there are immersion breakers, mismanaged audio parts, unlootable garbage, (now fixed) mirror baldness, slippery roads, etc. Petty glitches hardly any openworld doesn't have on release.
None of that is fatal.
So what's exactly new?

I'll tell you what's new.
The new is that reviewers, as usual, fastran the main story and are now giving rocket science lectures after barely passing a basic math course. I mean, seriously?

Note that I'm speaking from PC perspective.
By no means I will join lynchmob by PS4/Xbox players. I can understand them, but this is the opposite case of Arkham Knight when they shown me no mercy so sorry, I'm just returning the favor.

I have 40 h of side quests and just roaming around under my belt now and haven't even really started the main quest yet. I'd say I have fun.

I wanted to buy a new PC for this game - now I wait a few month more.

The subreddit has finally, slowly, started to have the sorts of threads I envisioned before the game came out: sharing snippets of all the many things one can do, see, wear, etc. in the game. There are still complaints, but instead of 99.9% of the threads, it's like 5-10% now.

Youtubers are still stuck though, apparently. Super useful opinion you've got there, guy who 2 weeks later is saying the same shit we've heard ad naseum.

No need to wait.
Besides, you should have bought the new PC (IIRC your CPU is some ancient) for Death Stranding.

It's definitely not worth buying a new PC for, but then I'm not sure any single game is.

Man, his CPU lacks of today's standard instructions.
It's not about one game.

I can play most games with my old quad-core Xenon and GTX 970 pretty well.
Genshin Impact, Wasteland 3, Troubleshooter, Trails of Cold Steel III, ELEX are looking good on 1080p for example.
Games that don't work are AVX games like Horizon Zero Dawn, Asssassin's Creed, Death Stranding and Cyberpunk 2077.
I never used a PC for such a long time (2007-2020) in my life (exchanging only the gfx-card every couple of years), but next year I will get a new one.

Just don't buy Threadripper.
Remember, Elex initially refused to run on it.
Imagine a game refuses to run on the fastest CPU out there, but loves anything below it. Then again, Threadripper, just like i9, is not a gaming CPU. Except inside PC Gamer offices.

I buy a complete PC for this one

Mainboard
ASUS ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING (WI-FI), Mainboard
1 x € 199,90

Processor
AMD Ryzen™ 7 3700X, Prozessor boxed
1 x € 310,-

should be good enough for current games.

I am enjoying C2077 a whole lot, after 50 hours and only a bit of the main quest line.

I have experienced 3 bugs -- 1 crash to desktop and 2 quests (including an early main quest) which could not be completed until I loaded an earlier save -- and of course a not-small amount of the usual open world glitches of rarely seeing something float in the air etc.

There are also implementations which could be improved, maybe over time. In addition, there are design decisions and implementations which are so-so and will almost certainly not be modified. In other words, it's not perfect even if patched, but it is a whole lot of fun. Depending upon how the rest of the game is for me, it's still possible that it could end up in my top 10 games of all time, but it's way too early for me to say at this point.

If someone is on the fence about getting this game, then I would heartily recommend it although I would wait a month or three until the game is further patched.

I did the same, until Oct of this year. Something about the MBs/CPUs of that time period. Man, they had staying power!

I've read that cops will just materialize out of nowhere when you break the law, and will barely chase after you. Is this true? I have not played the game, BTW.

A lot of love went into this game… You can see it everywhere. Despite the bugs, I'm having a lot of fun.

Yes they teleport in just like in GTA5 and in Watch Dogs.
The problem is they teleport in too close to you so you see it happening. This can be easily fixed - there are sidequests where reinforcements spawn further away and drive to the scene in their cars so this can be applied also on the police.

They will chase you but it's easy to escape. Or you can simply kill/KO them all for some XP and loot.

Funny you mention Watch Dogs because I booted that up the other day just to see how it compares. I remember thinking it was pretty cool (for an Ubisoft game) back when it was released.

Compared to CP 2077, it's ugly and simplistic. Ironically though, it has better AI. Citizens and police are more realistic in that game than in CP which is kind of sad given that it was released 6 years ago.
