There are only a few video games in existence that will relay a narrative as well as Cyberpunk 2077. Development studio CD Projekt RED spun a beautiful yarn, but it is a shame it is woven in this unpolished and broken game.

Story

Delivering the narrative is what CD Projekt RED does. It is only natural that Cyberpunk 2077 follows the same story-telling excellence that The Witcher series has and sets it in the dystopian Cyberpunk universe. Firstly, CDPR made sure to work with the original creator Mike Pondsmith to reproduce the Cyberpunk universe.
