Review of biomutants
Initially announced in 2017, biomutant instantly captured the players’ heart because of its incredible artistic direction that combined a rich post-apocalyptic world with nasty anthropomorphic animals. Benefiting from a choice based on the choice, a combat system based on martial arts and a multitude of original forms of crossings, can this collection of senseless ideas merge to create a really remarkable experience?
Taking place in the near future, after the extinction of humanity, biomutant tells a wonderful story, mixed with social comments. After years of environmental pollution, nature and animals had to adapt. The fauna has become more adept, with characteristics similar to those of humans to survive in a sterile world litient of vestiges of the past. Pillar of civilization, the tree of life has been contaminated. With its roots devoured by the imposing eaters of the world, it is your duty to find them and protect the sacred tree.
Before putting foot on your dangerous path, you can tinker a plethora of options to create the perfect cudal creature for your route to redemption. This multilayer character creator allows you to radically modify the appearance of the protagonist. Each modification of each statistic affects the physics and characteristics of your four-legged friend, ensuring that your biomutant is completely unique. With five separate classes with specific advantages, players can create a character that best suits their style of play, whether it’s a distance or corps combat.
Full of life, the world of biomutant has been designed with love to communicate the origins of the universe. Secrets are buried in ruined vestiges and juxtapose grasslands, enriching exploration. Throughout, you will discover eliminated objects that can be made in many ways to create particular weapons and armor that affect attack or defense properties and appearance. Relatively simple puzzles are nestled in abandoned service stations and other uninhabited buildings. These generally require you to maneuver objects, making the colors match to unlock a rare and legendary loot.
Everywhere, the settlements of six tribes, each at war with each other because of their difference of opinion on the preservation of the tree of life. Your task is to bring them together, but this can be done in many ways. Attack and crush the opposition for your tribe to reign with an iron leg, or persuade the nearby factions to create an alliance. This dynamic approach of the story adds weight to each decision because the effects of these leave an imprint on the world.
Each step is beautifully told, adding to the fantastic nature of the game. As animals have their own language, the conversations are translated and told with love, which gives the player the impression of snuggling in his bed while Peter Folk tells A comforting story. Adding to charm, the sounds are accompanied by an onomatopoeia cartoon graph incorporating more the feeling of tales of the game.
During your adventure, you will meet strange and unique characters that will give you goals to help you in your task of annihilating the World Eaters. The missions follow a generic structure that focuses mainly on recovery quests, however, you are rewarded with a strange mix of eccentric objects and forms of travel for your problem. As mentioned in the wonderful mind of Maurice Sendak, the bosses are adorable but imposing. They roam in the arenas and strike fiercely, however, these battles are pretty much in the book and lack the originality of the conceptions of the characters. Although the main campaign can be completed in 10 to 15 hours, many secondary missions are scattered to add longevity to the game.
Inspired by the Ratchet and Clank series, biomutant gives you the tools to attack in different ways. From afar, you can use a panoply of weapons and magical powers to eliminate enemies. Specific powers can be won and mapped on your face buttons, each separate and offering ways to vary fighting and develop strategies. For example, you can generate mushrooms that allow you to jump into the air and attack from above. By getting closer, the escape becomes vital. Timing your throws will give you a slowdown giving you the opportunity to perform a vicious combo. Although there are many options for destroying opponents, each feels mediocre and does not have the shades that its influences have.
Unfortunately, performance issues affect what could have been an unforgettable experience. Hollow in the framerate occur regularly and the strange crash breaks the immersion. Sometimes you can also cross gigantic enemies by making more frustrating meetings than exciting.
The world of biomoutant is exciting. The artistic direction and characterization will invite players to go through the entire map, discovering objects that develop the traditions of the universe. However, the gameplay is hampered by performance problems and bugs that make certain parts of biomutant feel like a chore. Although the game is not up to it, these ambitious debut of experience 101 make me salivate for their next version.
