Chinese gamers express their dissatisfaction very vocally in the reviews of Cyberpunk 2077, although their frustration is completely beyond the scope of this game.
Currently, entering the Cyberpunk 2077 review, you can see a large influx of negative feedback from Chinese players. Normally one might think that it is about some kind of discount because many of these opinions are written either in broken English, which usually explains nothing at all, or in Chinese.
What is this all about? One professional player who doesn’t play Cyberpunk 2077, but Gwent. He was punished for manipulating the results of the games, which was supposed to disrupt the integrity of the games.
And this is what Cyberpunk 2077 reviews look like now
There are not so many of these reviews that would affect the overall perception of Cyberpunk, and hardly anyone even understands what’s going on there.
Probably nobody will translate such messages on their own. We learn from Google translator that it is actually about Gwent and a player using the nickname “wangid2021”. The matter is complicated, and the Chinese are definitely not going to let it go. The broken translations show that Chinese players do not agree with the verdict issued by CDPR in Gwent.
Will it somehow affect Cyberpunk? Of course not, at least not on a big scale. If the game had fewer reviews, its overall rating could actually change. And so this “protest” is about to disappear.
In a way, this shows the weakness of the review system, where a situation completely unrelated to Cyberpunk affects opinions about the game.
