You can create your character & change other characteristics of your chosen avatar, including look, background & early statistics are some of the available choices. You can select your character gender, & appearance. Gender of character can have an influence on interactions with NPCs. There are also a greater number of choices available for selecting the appearance of your character.

Then you can choose your character background; your character could be a stranger & have entered Night City for a big reason, or he could be the one grown up in the city. This will have a drastic impact on the decisions you make during the game & your familiarity with the people & the city.

The game includes 3 major classes having particular statistics: strength, constitution, intelligence, reflexes, cool & tech. Instead of selecting one choice & this remains your particular ability throughout the game as you can’t change it, the game offers the skill to change between classes depending on the statistics you give priority during the narrative.

The game offers a number of firearms. Each gun is from a different maker, that has an impact on the quality of the weapon & its firepower.

The city environments are semi destructible that gradually collapse when you shot them. If you are hoping to survive behind concrete walls or pillars, then it will not save you from enemy fire for longer periods. Also the game includes tech weapons that are able to cross walls & smart weapons are also available that are special at tracking their targets.

Along with guns & melee weapons, the game allows you to choose from a large number of technical enhancements for playable character. From simple skills that enhance your interaction with the environments, to battle upgrades which can improve the ability set of every class.


Cyberpunk 2077 Cons (Disadvantages):

When you see trailer of Cyberpunk, you can see a clear & vibrant look of the characters & backgrounds. However, by looking at Cyberpunk genre, it seems to offer a darker aesthetic. It seems like the game is different from that.

In game previews, there are noticeable flaws in Cyberpunk 2077. The game launches on both consoles & gets a free upgrade for next-generation consoles including PS5 & Xbox Series X. Even though Cyberpunk 2077 looks promising by offering shear number of variety in main quests & awesome dialogues between characters. However, in game previews we have noted that its shooting & driving mechanics do not look authentic. Driving of the game feels flat, lacking weight or momentum to the act, & similar to games like Sleeping Dogs & Watch Dogs, driving in Cyberpunk 2077 is very bland.

Shooting of Cyberpunk 2077 also feels bland because it has copied shooting mechanics from other role playing games for example Borderlands, in which rivals can receive a number of bullets & are alive until their long health bar fully depletes. Even though shooting mechanics is fairly standard, but it lacks the realism that CD Projekt’s first person shooter is attempting to get elsewhere. Despite lack in both driving & shooting, it seems like Cyberpunk 2077 has lot more pros than cons & feels awesome. CD Projekt’s most famous game The Witcher was also criticized by some for its horseback riding & in-game combat.

Many fans think that it would be better if Cyberpunk 2077 is playable from third person perspective. Also fans think that a game like Cyberpunk 2077 should have given an option of playing from third person perspective too. CD Projekt Red’s most rewarding series The Witcher is playable from third person. Change of camera from third person to first person could be costly for the studio. Also third person view lets player to see playable character.
