I’ve been playing Genshin Impact for a while now, and honestly, I’ve had mixed feelings about the game; but the one thing I’m sure about is that it gives gacha games a whole new perspective, and my experience of it has been satisfactory and surreal. An open-world action/adventure RPG setup, where avid gamers will clearly notice similarities between The Legend of Zelda and this game. There are a few identical features, but this isn’t a carbon copy, from the world that it is set into the multiple character roster, to the story, every aspect is unique.
Here’s a review of the game which will help you decide whether to give this game a chance or not.
Genshin Impact begins where you a world-jumping mysterious being arrive on a new world along with your twin sibling. As you are about to jump to the next world an unknown entity stops you; who captures your twin after a brief battle. You wake up near a beach without any of your tools or powers with a weird floating creature named Paimon. Here’s where your journey of searching for your captured sibling starts. Here begins battling creatures, finding treasures, crafting tools, unlocking new characters, exploring the vast land of Tevyat begins.
The fact that the touch controls handle so well actually took me by surprise; usually on games like these, especially games with such large files and high-quality graphics the controls can be very difficult. But here the controls are so seamless that you can keep up with PC and console players in co-op matches.
I personally was playing the game on my One Plus 6T phone; but I would recommend a bigger phone or a tablet for a more easy use of controls and better overall experience.
The World of Teyvat
The world of Teyvat itself is a sprawling expanse of land that’s bustling and teeming with life; activities and adventures that will keep your hands full for hours. The game offers a diverse landscape, divided in multiple regions each unique to its own varied flora, fauna, monsters, characters, and stories; all for the player to explore in their own unique way to unfold the story in their own unique way.
Genshin Impact Characters
One of the most unique aspects of Genshin Impact is the plethora game characters it offers, 27 in total. All these have abilities, battle styles, and personalities of their own and are unlocked at various levels of the game as you progress onwards. Each character comes with abilities of their own that help you overcome hurdles that seem difficult before.
The world and the characters will quickly make the game very enjoyable for you that’s for sure!
The Underwhelming aspect
The only probable drag that one might feel is how the game progresses. One needs to understand that the game-play is level based, and so are the quests involved in it. So in order to progress with the main story-line one needs to complete multiple side missions in order to increase the character ranks and levels. Doing this can be quite an arduous task, as you need to balance all your four characters at the same ranks to level the playing field.
Genshin Impact – The Verdict
Despite the sluggish, grinding pace, Genshin Impact, creates an impact and offers an experience that is truly incredible and memorable. Offering an addictive game-play, exciting characters, a vast open-world filled to the brim with adventures that is guaranteed to keep you occupied for hours.
