I'm about 20~ hours in. I got past the prologue and since then I've just been exploring Night City and doing small side-gigs when they pop up (and are within my level.) I explored a bit far outside of Habuki/Chinatown and came across enemies that were pretty much impossible. I really wish enemies had a fucking level over their head instead of just that vague skull icon.

I got my graphics working smooth enough for me, 1440p and pretty much a consistent 50FPS, including the most busy parts of the cities. I don't have ray tracing with my 1080Ti so this is where I'm at. I did the AMD hex fix and it seemed to help my minimum frames quite a bit.

Anyway, really enjoying the game when I'm playing, lots of cool one-off small side missions, really like how you just need to get into the area of a mission and you get a call about what it is. Which you can avoid, if you want. The equipment scaling seems bonkers but luckily having crafting makes sticking with a single weapon somewhat plausible. I'm using Smart weapons and they're fucking hilarious and I love them. That is, when I'm not using a big ass kitchen knife because its DPS is somehow 3x that of my rapid fire SMG. *giant shrug emoji.*

Lots of really nice quality of life improvements are cheap augment upgrades or really early level perks so I reccomend exploring every different ripperdoc you see, they all have unique tech, and using a single perk point in something like auto-craft junk.

I know this sounds like nitpicking, but I really wish the world had more to do except for combat. I mean the little things, like being able to sit on any furniture, smoke cigarettes, use the arcade machines, have more stuff to spend money on (a casino?), perhaps add animals to the world and be able to buy a pet dog. I could literally go on and on, the world is beautiful and the game is fun, but the world kind of feels like wasted potential, in a role-playing game people like to, you know, roleplay, but with their not being much interaction in the world, it kind of feels like a missed opportunity. The made the same mistake that they made in the Witcher 3, the player character feels wooden at times, being able to do things in the open world really does bring said world alive.

I think I've encountered some kind of bug. Now, when I go to reported crimes and dispose of the trash, the cops then come in by the dozens to make sure I take the room temperature challenge. I don't understand why. I've reloaded several times and made sure I'm not hurting any civilians or doing anything bad, but they still come swooping in every single time.

I don't want to give spoilers away, but a couple of the stories have seriously hit me in the feels. The mission regarding PTSD made me log out for a while. I had an eerily similar loss in my family. I think it was handled acceptably for a game, complete with factors involved.

Gah. Half of me just wants to hack and shoot things and sneak through ventilation ducts, but the other half does appreciate they touch on some interesting things which make you think a second.

Yea I have the problem on some of those. Cops randomly spawn in by the dozens and just trash me. Other times nothing happens. The thing I hate the most is when enemies just spawn on top of me sometimes. Having fun overall but not really blown away by the game. Maybe in a few months it will be really good, but right now so far I'd give this a 7/10.

Having loads of fun exploring and doing a boatload of side missions to get my character outfitted the way I want: weapons proficiency, crafting and stealth.

The only major bug has been getting stuck in scanning mode. Normally happens when I'm driving but has occurred a few times during battles.

One other minor issue is random NPC conversations. Voice volume is too high. No matter how I configure audio settings their voices are much louder than scripted convos.

My favorite part is when the game crashes and it takes like 17 minutes for the cloud saves to sync so you can't start the game up right away.

Do you have an overclock/undervolt on your GPU by chance? My card has been perfectly stable since end of Sept in every game I've played until Cyberpunk. After resetting the card to default I had no more crashes because of GPU instability. This game really pushes hardware to the limit.

All stock. The crash doesn't need to be a CTD or anything, the game sometimes just stops registering keys and inputs after a while so I have to alt-f4 out of it. Regardless, any time I exit the game it takes it a solid 5-10 minutes to be playable again because its syncing the cloud saves.

Also, I noticed that crafting ammo consumes resources but does not in fact give you any ammo. Who knew.

Does anyone have a link to the difference in ripperdoc upgrades? Like, the normal vs epic or whatever? For some of the items it doesn't really say what they do in the first place let alone why I would want to spend $$ to upgrade them.

Most of the differences, like on the arm pieces, have to do with how many cyberware slots they have for you to install on them.

I'm running at high settings, 144Hz 1080p, RTX 2060 6GB and it runs without hitches and doesn't heat up all that much. Lots of places to visit and encounters to run. Game may not be all that polished but it is certainly a blast to play.

Mine gets a bit warm but no worse then any other newer game that I play. I may look into a cooling pad(or just try the old cutting board trick) as I'm sure having it sit on the arm of my recliner isn't the best for cooling.

i got a few more missions in last night and Its really starting to draw me in my only complaint is the driving is a bit ridiculous but I'm getting used to how the car moves.

I've been at end game for a few days so I've just been running around the city trying out new fighting techniques and weapons against enemies. It's been really helpful in crafting my V for the 2nd playthrough. I also at the time haven't figured how to level up athletics it may be bugged? Even after 75 hrs I was only level 3 and did plenty of running and climbing. I did the exploit with the berserk cyberware where you activate it, run, slide and mid slide you go into your inventory and the game thinks you are still sliding. I was able to go from level 3 to 10 (body was only lvl 10 at the time) in about 3 mins. You simply stay in the menu and if you go to your inventory then back to character you will see athletics leveling up.

I again did this primarily for experimentation as I wanted to get some of the perks in the athletics skill tree. Skills like being able to reload while running, sliding and jumping. Since I have double jump it's been awesome. If only I had the legendary ankle cyberware that lets you hover in air I would have a sick build. Like I said I already know what to focus my 2nd playthrough on.

Currently level 47/50 in the game.

EDIT: Oh yeah played the game with RT on to get the best looking game possible for the main quests. I've since turned it off and now I'm playing at 80-115 FPS @ 1440p UW DLSS quality. It's so much smoother I'm pretty sure I'm going to keep it like this especially if you are playing on a keyboard where you can really feel the latency when the FPS drops.

Powered through first playthrough and got stuck at an ending. After the prior patch decided to start a new game. Another 2GB patch just dropped today.

Currently at L13 and running around doing misc missions to build up my cash reserves and strengthen melee capability. Already picked up Gorilla Arms and am kicking the circuits out of various enemies with medium difficulty.

Looks like the fixed the exploit to max out athletics that I mentioned above but it does seem to be leveling out normally now so maybe they fixed it.

Some people love it. Some people hate it.

I'm almost 90 hours in and I'm going through the various endings now from my Corpo starting line. No, I am not spoiling shit. But I do wish for something extra - you'll know what I mean when you get there.

But my God. This game... Fuck man, it's almost (but not quite) like a novel that you can write yourself. With music that is fan-fucking-tastic. Visuals which are really freaking nice (don't hate, 3090 at 4K ultra RT preset). Atmosphere that begs to be explored. The writing and voice acting amount is huge - but I love it, unlike TSO which just got tedious. The game offers fast travel - and I drive _everywhere_ because of the music, visuals, and atmosphere.

I paid full price for this game, and I am glad that I did. CDPR needs to take that money and make more games like this. Granted, maybe less bugs - but I only encountered one game breaking one (that required a cyberdeck swap out instead of berserk). The other ones were just saving and reloading to fix it, or reload an earlier auto save (much more rare). Pretty freaking good for playing a game at launch on fairly new hardware.

FUUUUCK V! Why does it have to end? CDPR needs to come out with that raytracing patch for The Witcher 3 already - I haven't really played it yet, so I planned on waiting for that patch to make it even better.

So, I'm on the mission disasterpiece and I can't find Judy's van. It seems to be underground. Anyone know if this is a bug?
Any time something screwy like this happens, saving and reloading has fixed it for me.

Had a cyberpyscho mission where one of the things I had to investigate was under the ground for whatever reason. Quick save + load fixed it.

Just finished it. I did kind of rush through it and set the difficulty on easy though.

After Christmas, I plan on another play through this game playing a different role, either Nomad or Street Kid the 2nd time around.

There are 5 different endings with one being secret. I want to try and get the secret ending.

38.2 hours for my first play through.

This is the first game in a long time where I cannot stop playing it. The story is beyond compelling. It pulls you in.

The sad part is that people will go in and play the main quest and then decide if they like the game or not... this game is NOT the main quest. It's all of the gigs and side-quests. The side-quests are incredible. The detail, the acting, the issues they tackle are just... unreal.

I know that CP2077 is a buggy mess, but they have crafted a masterpiece in storytelling. They should have waited another 6 months so they could truly squash all the little bugs. If they had done that, every reviewer would have given this game a 10/10. It's that good.


I want DLC. I want a CP2078. I want more... and I'm not even done with it yet.



Oh... and Ray Tracing is very pretty.

45ish hours in now. Level 32, just finished maxing out Technical Ability and I crafted myself some really ridiculous Tech weapons like a shotgun precision rifle that (due to perks) charges super fast and gets like 5 simultaneous multi-thousand damage headshots through as much cover as I can throw at it. Also with a tech handgun I can get like 20k+ crits from sneaking, but sadly I don't think you can get a tech handgun WITH a silencer so I normally used a ridiculous silenced magnum revolver that has a ton of headshot damage modifiers which still gets like 10k crits, but silently!)

Finishing up most of the side stories, just completed Panam's quests and I've been exploring around. I absolutely love the map for this game and the world building is awesome. I guess at some point I should bother doing actual missions instead of just driving around and completing gigs, but the gigs are so much fun! I love doing gigs that are WAY above my level and actually having to sneak around so I don't die.

I've still only had a few bugs that were annoying enough to require a reload. Most of them dealing with menus that refused to dissapear and once I managed to cause a car pile up so bad that i couldn't leave the car.
