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.

I had a lot of trouble tearing myself away from Biomutant, and a lot of my grievances didn't really surface until I'd finished it and had time to digest. Before that, I was absorbed in exploring its well-designed world, plumbing ruins, collecting dopey looking mounts, and dressing like I just survived a landfill explosion. There are some unwanted mutations in its genes, but they're covered in fur and easy to overlook.

‎Biomutant is a game that mimics the proposals of The Witcher 3 or the recent Assassin's Creed, but with less budget. Despite having a truly interesting open world, Biomutant features flaws such as a wide variety of enemies, a repetitive combat system, an insubstantial progression, and poor narrative that make the game tedious in the long run. Less than 20 hours of duration and outstanding visuals keep the boat afloat and make the experience, as a whole, not memorable for better or worse.‎

Experiment 101 have certainly tried to make the world of Biomutant all the more unique via its language, but it performs the cardinal sin of overloading you with new vocabulary every few moments.

Biomutant tries to do so, so much... Probably more than it should. That's why some mechanics are pretty basic or undercooked, and the reason why everything feels like "I've seen this before". It's a shame, because the setting and world are really, really refreshing an interesting, and it's easy to see there were good intentions behind it.

Biomutant is a solid debut from Experiment 101. Though a couple of the game’s concepts don’t feel entirely fleshed out, there’s still a lot to appreciate.

Biomutant has been conceived to awaken great loves in the public, but it will not conquer everyone equally. His personal way of presenting himself and posing his gaming experience is a break from the more classic format and feels like an evolution of the old PS2 and Xbox games.

A little more variety, especially in mission design, wouldn't have hurt, but Biomutant is still a fun game and a good debut for the Experiment 101 team.

Biomutant is a game that overreaches early, and spends the rest of its run time trying, mostly successfully, to regain its balance. It's lovely to look at and its world is a joy to explore, boots on the ground, but the combat lacks impact and precision, and technical issues mar the experience.

Playing Biomutant made me think of simpler times, when I just turned my game console on and started playing without a care in this world, or in any world at all. It was me, my old-school 30" TV and the game in front of me, nothing more, nothing less. While it for sure has some flaws like a slow start, some combat junkiness at first and a couple of cut-scenes that look low budget-ish, by no means they hinder the end result of this great action-RPG. If these weren't present, a perfect score could have been very possible.

If the DNA of Biomutant sparks a re-evolution of some of the genre's dull spots, perhaps we can forgive the dull spots present here.
