Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty (The Game Actually Released Complete This Time)


I loved Cyberpunk 2077 when it came out. Controversies aside, the prospect of (minor spoilers ahead) a stowaway in your head trying to change who you are really intrigues me. Even the ideas of just cyberpunk in general, installing augmentations to your body, and everything a mess of wires and bootleg technology. Now though, after updates and years of work, Cyberpunk 2077 finally feels like the game it was meant to be. Which is all the more sad that this is the only expansion we’ll see, as it feels like things just started to get good.


While the review is for the Phantom Liberty expansion, it is worth it to say that the entire game feels like it got a DLC. New missions, new fixers, new cars, weapons and more were introduced in the main game. For that reason, I decided to replay the entirety of Cyberpunk 2077, not just Phantom Liberty. The latter is excellent, it’s everything the base game does but better, with less fluff and more stakes. As amazing as the cast is, with both Idris Elba and Keanu Reeves at the helm, the other members were even more compelling. This is a character-driven story, with you at the center of its moral questions. Will this expansion convert you into a Cyberpunk 2077 lover if it wasn’t for you before? Probably not, but it’s an excellent romp back into the world originally conceived by Mike Pondsmith.
