Genshin Impact Game Review

Genshin Impact

Genshin Impact is an anime-inspired open world game that has won gamers around the world over. With stunning visuals and immersive environments that draw them in, Genshin Impact quickly gained popularity with players worldwide. Plus, with numerous chores and tasks keeping players coming back for more.

Genshin Impact boasts four regions to explore, a diverse roster of quests to complete, and an abundance of characters to collect and level up – not to mention its gentle paywalls compared to other gacha games.

It’s a Breath of the Wild clone

Genshin Impact, one of China’s most beloved titles, boasts millions of players worldwide and even hosts festivals to honor its fandom. Genshin Impact’s widespread appeal can be attributed to its success at striking an ideal balance between providing players with an immersive environment and numerous ways to keep playing it; most open world games fail at accomplishing this, quickly falling into irrelevance.

Genshin Impact’s first trailer immediately evoked comparisons to Breath of the Wild, and for good reason; both games offer open world environments that enable you to climb virtually anything, have stamina systems and fantasy monsters who drop items that players can collect from. Genshin Impact even features similar colors and art styles.

While many were put off by comparisons between Genshin Impact and other games, others saw its value for gamers. Its combat systems, for instance, are complex yet satisfying requiring players to use combinations of attacks for maximum satisfaction; and its multiplayer features such as switching characters instantly add depth to battles.

But Genshin Impact does have its downsides. Leveling can be tricky because, unlike most RPGs, Genshin Impact doesn’t use an experience system for character advancement without spending real money – instead using daily energy consumption that players can earn or purchase with Primogems – an expensive currency bought with real cash.

Genshin Impact’s enemies are numerical, which means a player may find himself or herself defeated by one more powerful than him or her, leading to frustration as bosses can often prove more challenging than regular enemies.

Though Genshin Impact may resemble Breath of the Wild, its developers did not set out to replicate it directly; rather they were inspired by it. Genshin Impact is miHoYo’s fourth game and their first console release after previously only available on mobile devices.

It’s a gambling game

Genshin Impact is a free-to-play action RPG featuring a unique gacha monetization system called Wishes. Players purchase characters, weapons, and items within the game by completing random Wishes that appear throughout gameplay – the game can be found across PC, iOS/Android, PS4/PS5, and PS5.

Genshin Impact features an expansive world map packed with activities and dungeons for players to explore. Players will encounter puzzles to solve, enemies to slay, gear to collect, treasure chests for exploration rewards as well as ghostly sprites that hover above landmarks that challenge players to chase them down for extra rewards.

The Traveler, the protagonist of this game’s main storyline, must navigate their way through seven nations of Teyvat governed by various elements. When separated from their twin sibling at the start of their adventure, The Traveler embarks on a quest across Teyvat in search of them – where they encounter many people and form friendships with all sorts of animals along their path.

Genshin Impact features five regions, each offering their own set of weapons, enemies and mechanics. Combat is focused around elements – each having their own distinct reaction that multiplies damage dealt to players – enabling players to form powerful teams utilizing characters they prefer.

Genshin Impact’s artifact system rewards players with valuable items and equipment for upgrading characters’ attributes, increasing strength and speed, as well as fulfilling achievements. Players can find these artifacts hidden in chests, purchased from merchants or awarded through various achievements; or earn them through completion of Domains and Boss Domains.

Though full of features, the game’s gameplay may be overwhelming for newcomers. Its steep difficulty curve leaves newcomers struggling to keep up with content updates and events that frequently target newly opened areas of the world, which makes participation challenging for novice players. Thankfully, developers have implemented quality-of-life features designed to help newcomers overcome these hurdles.

It’s a free-to-play game

Genshin Impact is a free-to-play action RPG featuring a gacha monetization system known as Wishes. Players can earn one Wish each day for completing daily tasks or participating in events; or purchase Primogems to speed up accessing new characters and gear faster. Genshin Impact’s in-game economy encourages exploration through treasure chests to find, dungeons to raid, and enemy encampments to vanquish.

Combat in this game is deeply satisfying, offering players plenty of character options and engaging elemental reactions – for instance an enemy submerged in water can quickly freeze solid while targets frozen by ice attacks become superconductive and easier to attack with more ice attacks. Combat is engaging, with plenty of characters providing ample room to experiment with different builds and playstyles.

Like other live-service games, Genshin Impact features an intimidating learning curve for new and returning players alike. The game’s design focuses on progressive levelling up; as players advance they level up both character and weaponry over time. Many features exist to keep players engaged such as its robust quest structure and event calendar; however it does lack some tools necessary to address key player obstacles.

Genshin Impact’s heavy reliance on random number generation to unlock rewards is perhaps its most perplexing trait, particularly its Challenge Domain and Daily Commission rewards that require substantial grinding effort to unlock them. These systems may become especially bothersome to newcomers trying to advance through the story when they cannot complete such activities successfully.

Genshin Impact’s version 4.5 update introduced a Training Guide feature accessible through Paimon menu. This tool compiles data from active players to offer recommendations on how best to build characters – including weapons, artifacts, and talent configuration. While newer players will find this feature helpful, its effectiveness could still use some improvements for optimal use.

It’s a great game

Genshin Impact is an anime-infused action-RPG with an immersive open world and smart combat. While some enemies in Genshin Impact may act as damage sponges, their unique ways of attacking can make each encounter feel unique and enjoyable. Genshin Impact’s massive character list ensures endless experimentation!

Genshin Impact’s gameplay is enhanced by one of the most immersive video game soundtracks I’ve ever had the pleasure to listen to, thanks to in-house studio Hoyo-Mix producing an impressively diverse mix of styles that makes for both emotive and captivating listening experiences. Furthermore, its expansive and detailed open world environment continues to expand through regular patches which reset battle passes while adding systems and collectibles that add new regions for exploration and battles to fight within.

As well as featuring an impressive roster of 4-Star units like Amber, Kaeya, Lisa, and Xiangling, the game offers a vast selection of 1-Star characters. While its gacha system allows those willing to spend real money on Fate wishes (the premium currency used to purchase wishes), players can earn free Primogems by completing quests, opening chests, playing cards, fishing and other gameplay activities – or through spending Fate on Fate wishes themselves!

Genshin Impact offers an assortment of weapons with unique strengths and weaknesses. While its basic weapons may not be highly powerful, as players advance they will unlock more advanced weaponry upgrades as well as unlocking additional abilities.

The game offers various armor sets with distinct advantages and drawbacks; for instance, some sets may increase evasion speed while others slow the recharging time for abilities.

Genshin Impact makes leveling up characters straightforward, although enemies can sometimes prove challenging to defeat. Players can gain Character EXP through defeating enemies, completing Archon Quests and using the Wanderer’s Advice, Adventurer’s Experience and Hero’s Wit books; beating bosses also grants some EXP bonuses.
