It's funny, for all the hype this game has been getting, initial impressions from those who've played it are a bit...tepid. It's just okay from what I'm hearing.
My nephew started playing it and admittedly my PC is on the lower end of the specs, but he said it's a choppy mess. He said it looks good, but there's some kind of frame rate issues or something. I'm going to wait a month before I try it.
I've been enjoying it so far, about 50 hours sunk in, but it is unpolished and missing features (and content!) that should be there. I def agree that in 6-12 months, it has potential to be what it was presented to be.
The story however is really good, and the city itself is jaw-dropping. With a better AI and more interaction points such as shops and food stalls, and it would be the single most impressive video game background I would lay my eyes on. As it is, cruising around in a car or bike on a 55" oled screen on ultra settings is already quite something. I found myself stopping just to look at it and take pictures quite a few times.
Not impacted by the performance though, but that was expected, with RTX 3080 and all, but I understand the frustration from console players. Hopefully they make good on their promises and the upcoming patches will make the experience more enjoyable for them.
Waiting for next gen version. I’m in no rush.
