Sweet Promises And Bitter Reality In Crowbcat’s 40 Minute Video Of Cyberpunk 2077


Blogger Crowbcat, famous for exposing the problems and flaws of video games in his videos, returned from more than a year’s vacation with a 41-minute video about the flaws in Cyberpunk 2077.

According to Crowbcat, minus inserts from other people’s work (list of sources in the description), the demo contains footage he personally recorded on the base PlayStation 4 and PC using the maximum graphics settings.

The blogger’s main complaint against the developers is unfulfilled promises, which, on the eve of the release, created an unrealistic image of the upcoming game in the minds of potential buyers.


In particular, the author of the video drew attention to the simplicity of the behavior model of local NPCs, numerous bugs of varying degrees of comic relief, problems with performance and low branching (only 2% of the lines affect the plot).

In addition, Crowbcat emphasized the unresponsiveness of the world (objects, people) compared to releases of previous years like Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (2004), Saints Row (2006), Grand Theft Auto IV (2008) and LEGO City Undercover (2013) …

The shortcomings of Cyberpunk 2077 were noticed not only by Crowbcat – due to the unsatisfactory technical condition, the game was temporarily withdrawn from sale in the PS Store, and the Microsoft digital store has recently warned of problems with the version for Xbox One.

Cyberpunk 2077 is available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and operates in Backward Compatibility mode on PS5, Xbox Series X and S. Bloomberg journalist Jason Schreier spoke about the game development issues last week.
