Genshin Impact's open world and clever combat are fantastic, but its endgame tries way too hard to milk you for cash.

This is an amazing smorgasbord of exploration, discovery, combat, and customization worthy of your attention – despite the presence of a predatory monetization model

Genshin Impact offers a very well-made action-RPG as a free-to-play service--though it's not without a few caveats.

10 / 10.0
This game was so interesting because it had an amazing adventure and a wide open world. Each character had its own story which was related to the main story. So I became attached to the character and helped me understand the story. Although It has gacha system, It's enough to enjoy even if you don't pay for it.

Genshin Impact is a dangerous game with serious issues, conflicting identities, and very predatory game mechanics. On one end, it's a very beautiful open world RPG with interesting - albeit a bit simple - action based combat, high budget graphics, absolutely amazing music, everything you'd expect from a top tier game... and at the same time it's also a bottom of the barrel
100 / 100
This absolutely breathtaking masterpiece is a game I would recommend to anyone. To think it's actually free! The gameplay is so smooth and rarely lags, which is a miracle as to the price of the game. Right at this moment, the 1.1 update has not yet come out, but the map is pretty big to begin with. I spent lots of hours into this game and I can say that it is one of the most
