4 out of 5 stars


Genshin Impact is an open-world RPG game made by Mihoyo. Its protagonists are two twins who travel to different worlds. During one of their adventures, they get separated by an evil god. You get to choose which of the twins you want to play as. It is very popular and has a pretty good rating.

Starting with the positive, Genshin Impact is a very fun game. The fact that it’s an open-world game means that you can do tons of things, even after you beat all the quests. There’s a ton of content, such as archon quests, which are about the main story of the protagonist as they travel the world. There are also character story quests, which are about one specific character. Then there are side quests, which you can do when you finish the main quests and want more content.

Even after you finish all the quests, some events also have quests. Completing these quests gives you rewards, such as character leveling up materials, character talent materials, the in-game currency, and other things. Each update usually has one or two big quests, then some other side quests.

These updates often come with new characters and new regions. You can get characters by pulling characters from the gacha system or completing quests. For example, you can get some characters from completing the Mondstat archon quests. Every now and then, the update comes with a new region or country. For example, in the 2.0 update, Inazuma was released.

Also, the game has a multiplayer option. Sure you can just play alone, and you can still have fun, but getting to play with other players is an amazing experience. If you are having trouble with a boss fight, you can play with other players that can help you. Also, if you have a few friends who also play Genshin Impact you could play with them, and have a lot of fun. There can be up to 4 people in one world, so you can play with up to 3 friends. You can also play with strangers, although you might prefer to just play with people you know.

There are some downsides to the game, however. Once you complete all the available content (archon quests, side quests, character quests, etc.), there isn’t much to do. When you first start playing the game, there is a lot of content, so you might rush through it thinking the content will never run out. However, you will eventually get to a point where you will have finished everything available. There are daily commissions and weekly bosses, but eventually, this starts to feel like a chore when you have nothing else to do. Sure, you can explore the regions, but after you get the Exploration progress to 100% for everything, there isn’t much to do anymore. It is best to go slowly and enjoy being a new player so you can get the best experience.

In conclusion, Genshin Impact is a lot of fun. The characters are likable. The story is interesting. The controls are easy to master. However, you have to be careful to savor the little moments of being a new player and not rush through the content. Also, you should accept the help of higher rank players. I remember being too shy to accept their requests to join my world, but I regret it. They are normally really nice to lower-rank players and want to help them progress through the game.
