IGN:《原神》Amazing,虽然有氪金系统但是开放世界很出色!



《原神》的画面表现极其美丽,广阔的动漫风格世界,显然从《塞尔达传说:旷野之息》中汲取了灵感。


从整体的艺术风格到基于耐力的攀爬再到滑行,在探索的过程中,人们都不会不记得林克在海拉鲁大陆的冒险。


但这不仅仅是模仿,因为《原神》梦幻般的世界,各种各样的可玩角色以及深厚的RPG系统都非常独特。


and every one of the more than 120 hours I've spent in Teyvat has been an absolute blast.



《原神》是一款免费的动作冒险类角色扮演游戏,您在其中扮演来自另一个世界的模糊而神秘的“旅行者”,他来到蒂瓦特,受到女巫或神的攻击,然后双胞胎被捕获。


在海滩上醒来后,您开始寻找失去的兄弟姐妹,采摘水果,制作物品,战斗,但实际上却很少去搜索为你的双胞胎。


就像林克一点也不着急救公主一样。


《原神》的剧情是它的弱点之一,几乎使用了以往动漫角色和故事中大多数都会用的陈词滥调。


但是,由于您将大部分时间都花在漫游世界,而不是续写自己的英雄故事,所以凌乱的叙事结构不会破坏观感。


游戏的重点是蒂瓦特本身,这个世界绝对充满了可能性。每个角落都充满了收集品。(育碧直呼内行)


实际上,在庞大的世界地图上的任何给定区域中,在我眼前的视野中似乎总会发现大约五件或更多的东西,每件东西都有自己的挑战和回报。


有时候,我甚至不想完成主线任务,因为我去不断地探索世界而根本停不下来。


蒂瓦特的世界在整个过程中都非常漂亮,可以很好地观看和聆听,除了一些偶尔强制性的CG之外,这个世界的景象和声音仍然令人愉悦,每个角落都有令人叹为观止的远景和令人难忘的配乐。



一旦您开始解锁具有各自战斗风格,能力和元素的新角色,您就能获得与世界全新的交互方式,世界将呈现出不同的形状。


在(叫啥来着)这样的冰冻型角色的帮助下,您可以简单地冻结水去跨越水面。


一旦解锁(叫啥来着),您就可以随心所欲地创造风流,翻越太陡而无法攀登的山峰。


就在我以为自己了解接下来的游戏会是什么样子的时候,我解锁了一个全新的角色,物品或能力,这完全改变了我的游戏方式,并重新激发了我玩下去的热情。


角色切换


战斗中,你可以在多达四个角色的队伍之间即时切换,对各种各样的敌人类型进行攻击。


每个角色都配备了自己的元素类型和一些使用该元素的能力。通过在角色之间切换并协同使用其功能,您可以释放出一些非常有效的组合。


例如,如果您使用水能力使敌人湿透,然后进行电击,则伤害成倍增加,可以一次性消灭一堆敌人。


合作模式


您可以在冒险等级达到16之后进行合作游戏,但是此功能现在还不是很完善。您可以主持或加入另一个玩家来应对挑战并一起消灭老boss。


但是在大多数情况下,伙伴无法从您完成的任何活动中获得收益。这太糟糕了,因为和朋友一起冒险实际上可以带来很多乐趣,但是当你们其中一个,仅仅能够在战斗中提供帮助,几乎无法获得全部战利品升级时,就没有足够的回报去做更多的事情了。


尽管我花了120个小时才完成故事任务(滑稽),但原神目前在技术上还不完善,目前只有两个相当大的区域,故事章节是完整的,但是后面也有很多坑没填上。


氪金系统


《原神》完全免费,不过开箱会诱使您用游戏货币和充值来抽取随机角色,武器等。但游戏设法做到了不错的平衡,因此那些不想花钱的人仍然可以很好地免费享受整个游戏。


的确,可以通过在战利品箱中投入足够的资金来立即获得所有最强大的角色和武器,但从技术上讲,也可以通过提供的免费货币来幸运地解锁它们–或者,如果像我一样,你可以玩两周内120个小时不支付任何费用,而是通过持久的坚持将其磨碎。


但是更重要的是,这些强大的武器和角色绝不是必须的需求,而且我发现自己一个人就能通过技巧和磨练来应对大多数挑战,直到我最终幸运地获得了一些令人难以置信的强大功能,这使事情变得更加轻松。


好消息是,即使经过100多个小时,我仍然喜欢《原神》的几乎所有内容。探索世界,解决难题,击败敌人,完成任务以及解锁新角色,这个游戏循环令人上瘾。即使在利润丰厚的任务枯竭的后期阶段,您也只能漫步大陆来解决难题。


我还挺喜欢马车巡回赛的


总结


《原神》是一部令人惊叹的开放世界冒险游戏,它充分利用了《荒野之息》动漫风格的灵感来创造出真正与众不同的东西。即使付费模型的深度让玩家有不太好的层次感,但是出色的战斗,令人上瘾的探索机制,美丽的开放世界也使其成为我全年玩过的最激动人心的游戏之一。

Let's get this out of the way: Genshin Impact and its beautiful, expansive anime world of Teyvat clearly draw inspiration from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and I mean a whole heck of a lot. From the art style to the stamina-based "climb anything" mechanic to the gliding, it’s impossible not to be reminded of Link’s open-world adventures in Hyrule while exploring. But this isn't just some copycat, as Genshin Impact's fantastical world, wide array of diverse playable characters, and deep RPG systems are all unique and awesome enough to let it stand on its own two feet – and every one of the more than 120 hours I've spent in Teyvat has been an absolute blast.


Genshin Impact is a free-to-play action-adventure RPG where you play a vague and mysterious “traveler” from another world who arrives in the land of Teyvat before being attacked by a sorceress or God or...something, and your twin is captured. After waking up on a beach at level one and with zero loot, you set off on a quest to find your lost sibling that involves a whole lot of picking fruit, crafting items, and fighting deities, but surprisingly little in the way of actually searching for your twin. Because, just like during Link's rush to save Zelda, completing these quests where you *checks notes* feed ducks is way more important.


Genshin Impact’s story is one of its weaker points, using just about every anime character trope and story cliche in the book. Characters will re-explain the same magical jargon like they’re getting paid by the word, and the story meanders from one amusing misadventure to another with little cohesion. That poor pacing certainly isn’t helped by the XP-gating that happens between each act, where you’ll need to hit an increasingly more difficult to reach Adventurer Rank to advance to the next quest.


But since you'll spend most of your time roaming the world and making your own stories as you rank up instead of listening to people explain whatever the heck an Anemoculus is, that messy structure isn't a dealbreaker. And, with a few exceptions, the cast of quirky characters (a whopping 23 of which are playable) are a lot of fun to interact with and play as, even if I occasionally rolled my eyes when they made repeated and very uncalled for horny comments for no reason at all – yay, anime.


The real star here is Teyvat itself, a world that is absolutely bursting at the seams with possibilities. Every nook and cranny is loaded with collectibles to power your characters up with, chests to discover and pull loot from, puzzles to solve, enemies to take down, challenges to complete, dungeons to tackle, relentless bosses to fight, and quests to pursue. It’s actually almost distressing how much there is to do. In any given area in the massive world map, there always seemed to be about five or more things in my immediate field of view to pursue, each with their own challenges and rewards. Sometimes it's difficult just to stay on task and complete major quests simply because there’s such an embarrassment of riches available to you as you explore the world. A locked chest that catches the corner of your eye might lead to an impromptu quest or multi-step puzzle. Following a fluttering blue fairy might lead to a massive combat encounter or even a lengthy boss fight. It’s a disgustingly addictive chain reaction of things to do in the best possible way.


Teyvat is a world absolutely bursting at the seams with things to do.

It doesn’t hurt that the world of Teyvat is absolutely gorgeous to look at and listen to throughout, with the notable exception of some occasional obligatory over-the-top anime voice acting. Although it borrows more than it invents in terms of presentation, the sights and sounds of this world are still a joy to behold, with breathtaking vistas around every corner and a memorable soundtrack to back them up. On the PS4 and mobile, sometimes you’ll fast travel into an area before it finishes loading and have to wait for the world to catch up with you, but aside from those occasional hiccups, Genshin Impact looks and performs remarkably well.


Once you start unlocking new characters, each with their own fighting style, abilities, and elemental affinities, the world takes on different shapes as you gain completely new ways of interacting with it. What was once a lake too vast for you to swim across becomes easily traversable with the help of a cryo-type character like Kaeya that can simply freeze the water. Mountain peaks once too steep to climb become simple to reach once you unlock Venti and his ability to create wind currents wherever he pleases. Just when I thought I understood what my time in Teyvat was going to look like, I unlocked a new character, item, or ability that completely changed the way I played and reinvigorated my excitement for the next dozen hours of obsessive loot chasing.


Combat revolves around instantly switching between a party of up to four characters to shoot, hack, and explode through a broad assortment of enemy types. Each character comes equipped with their own elemental type and a few abilities that utilize that element. By switching between characters and using their powers synergistically you can unleash some seriously effective combinations. For example, if you use Xingqui’s water abilities to get the enemy wet, then follow up with Fischl’s electric attack, damage is multiplied and can wipe out a boatload of baddies in one go.


Instantly switching characters to synergize powers can enable some serious combos.

Filling out your roster of playable characters, weapons, and items, and discovering the ways in which they interact with one another becomes vital to your combat efficiency, especially for certain challenges that require you to finish the encounter before a timer runs out. This becomes particularly important as you approach the current endgame and enemies become more dangerous and gain beefy health bars, especially bosses. Whether you’re fighting a giant wolf who ruins your day with ice attacks that are just plain mean or taking on a flaming plant with some truly disgusting inferno abilities, using every tool at your disposal becomes indispensable.


Genshin Impact can also be played co-op after reaching Adventure Rank 16, but at the moment this feature feels pretty tacked on. You can host or join another player to tackle challenges and take down bosses together, but in the vast majority of cases the guest is unable to reap the rewards from any activities you complete. That's too bad, because adventuring with a friend can actually be a lot of fun – but when one of you is locked out of nearly all loot and progression, merely able to help out in combat, it’s just not rewarding enough to do for more than a short time.


"Work in Progress"

Despite it taking me 120 hours to reach the end of its story quests, Genshin Impact is technically incomplete at the moment, with only two (sizeable) world areas, one complete chapter of its overarching story, and two-thirds of the next one currently accessible. While the prologue is playable in its entirety, the chapter that follows does not have a third act at this time.


At the time of this review, developer miHoYo has not provided a roadmap with details as to when we can expect new chapters to be added, though a third region of the map is planned for later this year. That said, there is plenty already here, and the prospect of any coming content updates feel more like MMO expansions than something akin to an early access update.


Microtransactions and its "Gacha" Model

Genshin Impact is entirely free, but the elephant in the room is its “gacha” model – also known as loot boxes – that tempts you to spend both in-game currency and real money on randomized characters, loot, consumables, and more. The ecosystem certainly flirts with being pay-to-win (a slightly less meaningful issue in a game with a focus on single-player and no PvP), but manages to strike a decent balance so that those who don't want to spend a dime can still enjoy the whole game for free.


While it’s true that all the most powerful characters and weapons can immediately be acquired by investing enough money into loot boxes, they can technically be unlocked by getting lucky with the free currency provided as well – or if, like me, you manage to play over 120 hours in two weeks without paying anything at all and grind them out through sheer persistence. But more importantly, those powerful weapons and characters are by no means a requirement to advance, and I found myself breezing through most challenges through skill and grinding alone until I finally got lucky with some formidable unlocks that made the going much easier.


The real trouble with the gacha model comes in the later stages of progression, when the grind for account-wide “adventure XP” and upgrade materials becomes an exponentially steeper climb and time-gated activities that reward those things become a massive progression roadblock… which can be lifted for the right price, of course. This means that those willing to shell out some money are able to advance through the endgame much faster than non-paying players, who will have to play a heck of a lot more to catch up. In fact, just about every item in Genshin Impact can be acquired with enough help from your wallet, and anytime you run up against one of these barriers, you can be sure a pop-up will come to remind you exactly how you can overcome it. Admittedly it took about 40-50 hours of play before that wall really started to loom in front of me, but once it hits progression can slow substantially.


The good news is that I still enjoyed almost every part of Genshin Impact’s grind, even after more than 100 hours. The gameplay loop of exploring the world, solving puzzles, beating up baddies, completing quests, and unlocking new characters and equipment to upgrade and experiment with is incredibly addictive. Even in later stages when lucrative quests dry up and you’re left to wander Teyvat solving puzzles and finding hidden chests for slivers of XP and loot, it’s hard to complain when all of that is still a ton of fun. Even if the temptation to pull out your credit card is ever-present and sometimes in your face, the grind (so far) hasn’t been unpleasant enough to make the experience painful for me as a free player.


Verdict

Genshin Impact is an amazing open-world adventure that draws heavily on both its Breath of the Wild and anime inspirations to create something truly special. Even if the gacha model introduces some undesirable level grinding deeper in, the excellent combat, addictive exploration, and beautiful world make this one of the most exciting games I've played all year.
