Biomutant's stunning world barely survives the painful narration, broken progression, and dearth of stuff to do.

Biomutant has a lot of the building blocks of a top-drawer action RPG but its cookie-cutter approach to objectives and puzzles starts feeling very repetitive very early on.

For all the weirdness and fun it promises, Biomutant ends up a deeply conventional open-world action game.

It's very pretty but this patchwork of other game's ideas never has enough of its own to keep you interested during the repetitive and overfamiliar open world action.

Repetitive, formulaic, and downright strange, Biomutant suffers from an abundance of problems that get in the way of great ideas.

Biomutant has fun moments, but it stumbles in too many significant ways to make it a wholly satisfying experience

Biomutant presents a different take on the post-apocalypse, but a forgettable story and uneven gameplay hold it back.

It’s a shame that Biomutant isn’t a better put-together piece of software. Its world feels unique, the way it blends different combat styles is fun and it’s a visual treat to look at on a big 4K TV. But countless bugs, performance issues, overly talkative NPCs, boring quest design, and a sense of overall jank makes it hard to excitedly share this game with people.

Considering Biomutant’s delayed and seemingly troubled road to release, I’m blindsided by just how good it is. Experiment 101 has clearly been afforded the time to see its vision through, something which is unfortunately far too rare in the cutthroat gaming industry. I did not expect this to be one of my favorites of the year so far, let alone one of the most enjoyable open-world games I’ve ever played. A true modern gaming miracle.
