Description

BIOMUTANT is an open-world, post-apocalyptic Kung-Fu fable RPG, with a unique martial arts styled combat system allowing you to mix melee, shooting and mutant ability action.

A plague is ruining the land and the Tree-of-Life is bleeding death from its roots. The Tribes stand divided. Explore a world in turmoil and define its fate – will you be its saviour or lead it to an even darker destiny?

Key Features:
  • A NEW TAKE ON 3rd PERSON COMBAT
    The martial arts style combat system allows you maximum freedom of movement and agility while mixing shooting, melee and powers from your mutations. Learning new Wung-Fu combat forms through progression and learning from masters you’ll meet, will constantly add to your choices and make sure combat never gets old.

  • EVOLVE YOUR GAME-PLAY
    You’ll be able to re-code your genetic structure to change the way you look and play. This will of course affect your attributes and in addition to this, exposure to bio-contamination in the world will lead to mutations like the Turtleform and Mucus Bubble, while exposure to radioactivity found in bunkers from the old world will affect your mind and unlock psi-mutations like telekinesis, levitation and more.

  • NEXT LEVEL OF CRAFTING
    You are totally free when crafting weapons. Mix and match parts to create your own unique 1H or 2H slash and crush weapons. Revolvers, rifles and shotguns and add modifications like cork-screws and battery-powered chainsaw modules to bio-contaminated sludge vials adding to your combat arsenal. There are even characters you’ll meet that’ll craft cool stuff for you, like bionic wings, a jump-pack and even let you modify your Automaton - the scrap-toy sidekick!

  • GEAR UP FOR ADVENTURE
    You are totally free when equipping your character. Not only when it comes to choosing weapons you created, but what type of gear you wear. Equip a gas-mask and an oxygen tank for exploring the Dead Zones, thermos-resistant clothes for venturing into cryonic areas or protective gear for taking on bio-contaminated creatures, the choice is up to you.

  • SURVIVE IN A VIBRANT OPEN WORLD
    You are free to explore the world and what lies beneath its surface, by foot, mech, jet-ski, air-balloon or area unique mounts. Explore the dying wildland, the tunnels and bunker networks of the underworld, and find your way up the mountains or out in the archipelago. There are lots of discoveries to be made, mysteries to unravel, creatures to confront and weird characters to meet in this vibrant and colorful world.

  • AN UNUSUAL STORY WITH AN UNUSUAL END
    Your actions play a major part in the unfolding of a story where End is coming to the New World. A plague is ruining the land and the Tree-of-Life is bleeding death from its roots. The Tribes stand divided, in need of someone strong enough to unite them or bring them all down...
    You are guided through the world by a Storyteller that narrates every step of your journey, but it’s your actions and choices that’ll decide how your story of survival ends.

I think it's a good open world game. You have plenty of options, good graphics, acceptable gameplay and an original and interesting story.

I was not convinced by the idea of the narrator, but it can be deactivated. Although it has a lot of details, it gives the impression of being in a somewhat static world.

Normally i do not write reviews on games , but as I see that this game is getting bad reviews which are for my point of view missleading, I decided to write a review on my own.

To be honest: in the beginning I was a bit sceptical. A lot of pages writing reviews claim that the game is bad. So before you already start playing the game you get a bad feeling and lets you prejudice although you did not play a single minute...but let's cut to the chase:

Story: I played now for 4 hours and I can say that I'm really interested in how the story evolves. You have a lot of decisions you can make already in the first hours: which tribe do I want to assist? Am I good or evil or maybe something in between? I really like the options I have. So you can decide do I want to assist to destroy the tree of life or do I want to try reunite the different tribes and save the tree.

Combat & weapons: there are a lot of weapons . you can craft your weapons by assembling different parts together and after 4 hours gameplay I really START getting the hang out of it. The weapons have different attributes as: State, rarity, Type and so on. You can destroy the parts to gain materials to craft new parts.

I read some reviews that you are dealing not a lot of demage in close combat. I can say that I can truly understand this and this can not be criticised if your close combat attribute is very low at beginning and you need a lot of level ups to increase the power. It also depends how you spend your DNA in the beginning . Which race are you playing etc. I think reviews saying after 2 hours of gameplay that you deal not a lot of damage is untrustable, because of course you deal less damage with low attributes. But therefore you have different types of combat. Close combat, ranged, mutations etc.

To be honest I must say I still didn't find my fight style as I'm trying out different things. But I think this is a good point instead knowing from the first moment what you gonna do.

Graphics: I play at 4k on a 120 Hz Monitor at maximum Settings and I need to say that the graphics is stunning. I love the details and simply to watch the different corners and angles of the world. Beautiful! People wrote that the camera is too close, but when they would look into the settings instead of focussing on the bad things of the game, they could see that you can adapt your field of view in the camera settings . you have a lot of adaptions you can make in order to adapt to your play style.

Narration: Yes, there is a narrator. That's it. The characters In game talk in a fantasy language. must this be immediately bad? No! Its simply a different type of telling a story. There are also different types of books which use different techniques to tell a story (metaphor). I like the idea. Its something different and not like each other game you play nowadays .

I need to say that although the developer studio is small in comparison to others (which a lot of people forget), they did a really great job and then game is stunning, interesting and I didn't want to stop playing it. For the size of the team they did a lot of work and crafted a game which brings a bit of a twist into your steam library.

All in all I can only say: forget what people are telling you about the game. I think in lots of cases people simply tried to find out I'm 2 hours if they will refund it or not in order that they get their money back. This is definitely not possible in this short amount of time.

Try it on your own and give the game a realistic chance.

  • A lot of choices you can make

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!

The prolog takes 2.5-4 hours to finish depends how fast you skip and the gameplay is always the same and never changes.

Its not even worth for the cheap price on Instant Gaming.
  • Crafting and Customization
  • Bad/Wacky controls and movement
  • Broken Hitboxes
  • Very bad cutscenes and boring story
  • Gameplay gets boring fast feels like a kids game
  • Best part when you find the narrator mute button so he finally shuts the fu up
