The ambient noise and subtle music found when exploring the world sets the tone nicely, but having one voice actor narrate the entire game can become grating, and makes it difficult to grow attached to different characters, despite the excellent work done by David Shaw Parker.
Often, you'll come across a vista in Biomutant that's really visually stunning. But the visuals are let down elsewhere, whether that's in stiff cutscenes, performance problems, or some strange lighting glitches.
Once you settle into the moment-to-moment rhythm of Biomutant, it can be easy to lose hours to it, but the high frequency of combat encounters can quickly grow tiresome.
Biomutant delivers a lot of different gameplay systems in its open world, but very few of them feel fully developed, leaving the game with a distinct lack of cohesion.
A fine list. There's plenty to do here, without anything that should prove too difficult, but there's not a ton of imagination on show either.
