Genshin Impact App Comments & Reviews
Genshin Impact Positive Reviews
Wonderful game, just somewhat predictable and repetitiveSumming this entire review up in one statement, this is, hands down, one of the most polished and near-perfected rpg games available and the evidential effort instilled in the unique features and personalities of every last character, environment and sound effect reflect Genshin’s beauty very profoundly. There are hundreds of positive factors this game wraps around, but the primary reason why this review isn’t completely five stars is because after about 3 weeks of in-depth play, you start to realize exactly where certain mobs spawn, just how many of that ONE type of the same exact weapon you earn through the wishes you obtain every single day of gameplay. That being said, Genshin loses its “unwrapped-gift” charm (intentional metaphor) and eventually becomes somewhat of a chore once you realize spawns, camps, and challenges never change in location and aren’t really surprises once you find them (unwrap their features) once. You find chests in the exact same spot and everything as well, not to mention, obtaining the same exact weapons through wishes every time kills the thrill of spending tokens or whatever the money system is called (I don’t remember) each time and looking forward to something new. Six weeks of gameplay and the lack of random events added to repetition completely killed my interest. Beautiful game, well developed, but way too predictable..Jftech01Version: 3.2.0
IdkThis game is the perfect one for you if you’re looking for an open world game. It lets you do Co-ops with other people, and updates you every time theres something new! They recently added a new place, Fontaine. Here are 1-3 things about Fontaine! Firstly, you will not drown in the water at Fontaine after you get the statue. Secondly, some of the monsters in the water will not attack you at first sight like the other monsters in the other places (Mondstadt, Liyue, Inazuma and Sumeru.) Lastly, in Fontaine, you can dive in the waters of Fontaine unlike the others! They also give out tutorials that you can look in the game. Like for example, you’re at a new place but you see something you dont remember, there will be a little square at the bottom of the screen and it’ll say something like “Gameplay Tutorial.” You tap that and it’ll give you all the info you need! Also, this game is a wishing game. Whenever you get something called Primos, you can use them to wish for a new character! For beginners, they set you up with 20 Acquaint fates you can use for the wishing thing! Also, after you unlock a statue of the seven like for example, you unlocked Inazuma with the statue of the seven, you can change ur element to the one the statue of the seven holds! Like lets say, You really love the element Hydro, you can go to the statue of the seven in Fontaine and change your element there! This game is really fun and you can play with friends..Itz CrystalBOOMVersion: 4.3.0
Best game in the universe! <3This game is the best game I’ve ever downloaded! it’s a great open word game, the plot is amazing and all the characters very well designed and have great backgrounds. i love all the fun things you can experience in this game like domains, bosses, and the wishing system (getting characters). and the system of daily commissions, and you’re reputation in different places to get wind gliders is super fun! also there’s gods that rule over the seven nations of Teyvet, and all the gods will eventually become playable characters, like Venti (anemo archon), Zhongli (geo archon), and Baal that will be coming soon (electro archon). also every nation has something special like Mondstat is the city of freedom, Liyue is the city of contracts, and Inazuma is the city of eternity and etc. some things are a little too complicated for me, for example building characters with artifacts, also artifacts help a lot with getting though with enemy’s faster (better dmg, def, hp.), but I just try my best. something I don’t understand is and I don’t like is that you can’t craft and unlock teleport waypoints and talk to people while in co-op mode. and I also love the new map, but I’m not so good at puzzles lol. also visions and all the elements, pyro, hydro, anemo, electro, dendro, cryo, geo. something I wanted added to the game is being able to pet animals, although it seems kinda silly I still think it’s cute. pls download this game its the best, enjoyy! 🤍.✨Paimon✨Version: 2.0.0
SurprisedI’m one of those people who Judges a game by its video/screenshots/price/platform rather than description so at first, I personally thought it was some copy or ripoff of another game that costs 60$ more that will be left unnamed, but it’s much different. There are some things I would love changes too like, you don’t start with so much stuff, you can have two to three characters out as an a.i. that you can switch to when you need them for a puzzle or you want to get them out of a predicament instead of having one out at a time and hear characters that may not be there, with that edition you could have a healer and strategize rather than switching to what you need when you need it out of nowhere. Another thing is that the gameplay and story through me off from how original and fun it was for a game I was initially going to play as a time waster. I would quiet enjoy to have more skins for your characters and voiced dialogue/more story into the main character instead of a random flying thing that always seems starved. I love the mystery so if you are into that sort of thing I think that you would like it although even with fast travel, travel is quiet annoying and unfortunately, I have no ideas for that
TL/DR: You should play because of story and animations if not because it’s free
PS: I played this on PS4 though I tried it on iPhone, and I didn’t like the controls.... well then.Version: 1.0.2
Concerned with primogems and content for higher AR playersThis game is pretty incredible when you first start playing. There’s plenty of content, characters, and so on. However, when you start playing more you’ll slowly realize that there’s less content for higher AR players. And that’s the problem. Less content means it’s harder to grind for primogems, not to mention the rewards are so little which makes it even more difficult. To make it worse primogems are WAY too overpriced. You cant even get to pity for $100. I feel as if mihoyo doesn’t care about our concerns and only wants our money. New banners are coming out, and there’s not really any way for you to grind for wishes. After you reach 100% world exploration and get to a high AR there’s almost nothing to look forward to in the game except for daily’s, domains, and new events. There’s a problem with the resin too. There should at least be a way for you to get more resin once you reach a certain AR. Other than that, you just do your daily’s and log off. And another thing, the wish system is also overpriced. Wouldn’t it make more sense for it to be 100 primogems for one wish at least? Considering how hard it is to get primos. If you cant do that, then at least make it a little more easier to get farm primogems in the game. For example, let us earn primogems in domains, like the Abyss. It doesn’t have to be much, just something. You really can’t expect much from this game after a while, and it eventually becomes boring..Christina Elizabeth JansenVersion: 2.3.0
Worth the hard work!!!When I first started I had no idea how to play it would be nice if before you played there where instructions but idk if there where I didn’t actually read or remember so if there word my bad!!! But I had no idea how to play so I didn’t like it at first. Eventually I figured it out and went to the statue of the seven the first one they tell us to go too I thought it was pretty interesting since then. After wards I went to mondstant (idk how to spell it sorry) and that’s my favorite part bc I thought I would be alone in the game and that I would have to make camp fires and that but At the end there was a town where u can buy stuff and relax … etc witch is great!!! Therefore came the missions and at first I did all of them and defeat every enemy I saw but when I continued playing I started to avoid the fights because I just wanted to get to the target like if it was a walk in the part but the coding in genshin made it very hard meaning that it was nearly imposible to not be attacked by enemy’s but even so I did avoid the enemy’s . But I came to realize if I fight more enemy’s I get leveled up! So that’s great I avoid but also fight sometimes. Right now currently having a hard time with the mountains it’s pretty hard to stay warm and idk how to pass the mission it’s called “lost in the snow”. - but overall I loved the game it makes me feel all sorts of emotions!!!!.<3 travelerVersion: 1.6.0
AAA Title for freeThis game is insane. I’ve played now for a total of 42 days, according to HoyoLab. Easily hundreds of hours. I play every day for hours. This is the only game I'm currently investing time in. And let me say it is WORTH your time. A HUGE open world not pay to win and complete flexibility with how you play. I have invested around $20 total over the course of my time and it was for 1 character, Xiao. I didn't get him, however i did end up getting him with a free wish i received, go figure. But this is not like a normal GATCHA game. You get so many characters with the chance at more and more completely for free. You never have to spend money. There is no pay wall and the story lines are fantastic. I literally cant type out enough praise for this game. Its the best game i have played hands down in a very very long time.
It does need some more end-game or late-game content, especially because at AR37 the story just stops.
DEVS: This game is a huge accomplishment and you should all be proud. Its extremely ambitious, especially if you are planning on including zones that represent every element, however, keep with it. You guys can have THE best game of all time if you listen to your fan base and keep this momentum up! The lantern rite event was absolutely incredible!
P.S. try and keep the tower defense mini game in! Its so much fun just to pass time! And it gives us a reason to keep playing after we finish our daily grind!.CraftiBadgerVersion: 1.3.0
Good game, but…I’ve only been playing for about 7 months now. I’m AR 50, a mobile player and a light spender. There are some really great things and some not so great things I’ve noticed about Genshin Impact.
Great things: I love the graphics and the effort and thought put into all the character’s designs and backstories. All the areas and quests are flawless and beautifully made. The storyline makes sense and is really fun to play out.
Not so great things: I don’t like that in the entire game, there are only two characters who are maybe even a bit tan, and they’re only four-stars! There is no Black representation whatsoever. Same with non-binary and transgender characters. There isn’t a gender-neutral traveler option; you’re just either Aether or Lumine. The wishing system is also a bit sucky. Free to play players have a horrible time saving primo gems. You almost HAVE to spend money to get any good characters. Even if you do spend money and get lots of primo gems, you’re still not guaranteed the character you want. This game also takes up a LOT of storage, especially on mobile. PC edition is much better than mobile. The graphics are better, it glitches less, on and on and on. Hoyoverse also does nothing to recognize player’s concerns and takes advantage of the fact that you practically have to spend money to succeed in this game.
This is not a bad game, it just has some issues that need to be addressed..Albo B. MillerVersion: 2.7.0
Love the game but I wish there were some minor changesOverall the game is great, but there are some major problems. While some QoL changes have been made since I last considered reviewing the game there is some new insight now that I’ve spent a small amount of money on the game. Mostly, my biggest complaint is with the weapon banner wish. Even though they added a guarantee system, it’s still incredibly hard for smaller spenders to get the weapons they want. I won twice and got both of the ones I wanted but that’s incredibly rare and most people don’t have that sort of luck. I know they don’t take feedback very often, especially in such an oversaturated category, but I wish the Fate Points would carry over to the banners. It is still reasonably hard to get the correct weapon, but right now, I feel very discouraged from spending my money on the banner because if I don’t spend enough then all of it will go to waste.
I also have some concerns for how this game will conclude. I don’t think the system of adding so many new characters every single update is very sustainable. In HI3 each of them has different battlesuits but the characters are technically the same people, so the story is somewhat more streamlined. I also think a condensed resin/resin refresh rate/resin cap increase is overdue since Sumeru will probably come with many more weekly bosses..Iris JinVersion: 2.8.0
Stuck.Overall, Genshin Impact was a pretty cool game at the beginning. Including the immaculate amount of high quality graphics and the absolutely adorable designs, such as Paimon. Although, after at least 30 minutes, I believe, of downloading the full version, following Amber and completing quests, all the way to discovering the temple and fighting the monsters, I had uncovered a level where you had to fly to reach the other side. You were stuck on a huge cliff, on one side, a huge gap in the middle, and the other side. The instructions that Amber had given me were to fly across the gap to get to the other side. After all, I had just discovered the game ability to fly a while ago. Thinking this was easy, I concentratedly pressed the button and attempted to fly across the gorge, only to be sent down into the "abyss" and be revived. Just then I had discovered that your characters could die, unfortunately. I repeatedly tried over and over to fly across the gorge without the game automatically making my character sink in a sort of slow matter, enough time to make me fail to reach the other side. My lives were decreasing and soon enough, the only character left I could use was Amber. Eventually I just gave up. Developer, do you think you could possibly consider this problem that I, a mobile player, have been having? I cannot play Genshin Impact until the "glitch" has been fixed, since my lives are decreasing every try. Sincerely, -An Upset Player..Lucyismypuppysname:)Version: 2.5.0
Great game, needs some fixing thoAs a heavy genshin daily player, I’d like to say that this is the most fun game I had in quite some time. The character designs are great, the voice lines are great, and the graphics are truest stunning (playing on a pc/ iPhone 13 pro). However, this game does come with several flaws. First of all, let’s address the elephant in the room. Please improve your resin system. With more content than ever, we players need more resin than ever. Please increase resin tick/gain speed to 5 min per, and increase resin cap to 200. This would help a lot. Furthermore, the content in this game is kinda drying out. I’ve done all the quests there are and it gets boring after some time. The only thing left to do is to farm for talent up materials or artifacts, which relies on RESIN. Additionally, you should improve your daily commission system, an improvement towards the expedition system where it's auto or a resend button would be nice. I'd also like to suggest having an expedition where you could get primogemms,, but have a chance of failing to get them. Please also buff certain characters such as yoimiya, Kokomi, these 5* are overshadowed by other characters. Bennet should be nerfed, as he single handedly can care an entire abyss team. Make his healing stop at 60% and reduce his attack buff. Also buff qiqi and keqing. Your character balance is needed more than ever.Grace7879Version: 2.3.0
Great game, my current hyperfixiation, could be betterI’ve been playing genshin for over 2 years and it’s my current hyperfixiation at the moment. i play it A LOT and never have many issues with the game, even though i play almost always on mobile. i’ve played on pc recently and i can say that the iphone and pc graphics are almost the same quality. my overall positive opinion(s) on the game is the story line is absolutely amazing and so so interesting, especially all the lore involved, i also love all the characters designs and how cute they all look, and many characters keep coming out and getting leaked and they all look great. i also love how it’s open world and there are many different things to do and opportunities to experience while exploring and such! on the other hand, some downsides are that higher ranked players, like about ar 45-60, have little to no chances to do anything but dailies and farm bosses plus domains, and just do events that come out every now and then. i would very highly recommend that there are more things to do and more opportunities for higher ar players to be able to do things other then log on, do dailies, look at characters, and then log off. it gets super boring after awhile, so maybe add some more events and activity’s. other then that i plan to play the game till i’m ar 60 or i own all the characters. thanks hoyoverse for the great game :).Alfredo🦦Version: 3.5.0
One of my favorite games🖤🖤Ok,I started the game on I think July 1 or 3 and already it’s my favorite game! I love how beautiful the art is and the characters are sooo cute! Personally my favorite characters are venti,xianling,and Lisa I love they’re personalities and the way they look they’re sooo cute I’m currently on level 18 and I also love how you can either join a multiplayer server or a single player server as a person who doesn’t like multiplayer games bc idk i have social anxiety but I think the real reason is that I get paranoid about what people think about me or what they’re saying 😂 the only down fall just for me is that- IM STUPID and some of the quests are a little hard like the abyss mage one I don’t wanna spoil what happens in it but they’re kinda hard but on the bright side i did say I get paranoid but it not just about what ppl are saying about me but I also get paranoid about bad things happening to either my friends or family like A-LOT or me so if that ever happens I play this game and I feel better it’s just a feel good game! So yeah I would totally recommend the game if your 12+ like the game says you should totally get it or if it’s ok with your guardian and your underage and you get the game don’t worry about what it says in the reasons on why it’s 12+ I think it’s because of some of the outfits and the violence! But anyway 9/10 rating! Would definitely recommend if you like anime!^^.Pls tell me if its just meVersion: 3.8.0
I cannot express how much I love this da*n gameBefore this game my life was a barren wasteland of… well crap.. it was crap most definitely crap. Then one evening while talking to a friend on discord they happen to be streaming it, I was like “heyyy whatcha playin’ there??” Thus Genshin Impact was downloaded onto my phone. Now.. at first I was like, “this game is kinda hard… it’s kinda strange”, but.. as time progressed I got more and more interested in the stories, quests, themes etc. Then a couple months into playing Eula happened, I was awestruck, I was mesmerized, I was completely hypnotized by that blue hair and oh so thique thighs she has. But what captured my attention more than her character design, was her impeccable swordsmanship. The way she swings her claymore with such grace and beauty just.. *Mwuah* magnifique! Now lemme tell ya I dumped a little over $300 on her. I ended up pulling Diluc before her sadly losing my 50/50 but it was all worth it once I got her in my party. I will add as a final touch to this review, that Genshin Impact has saved me from lots of depression, this game makes me feel good, takes my mind out of the dark and brings me such joy I cannot describe it through words alone. For that I thank you Mihoyo, you’ve helped me, and you’ve helped thousands of other chronically depressed teens who are probably failing school as well just like me. Thank you so much. *wipes a tear away*.Maddie_132003Version: 2.3.0
It’s great but it needs more customization.This game is great overall but I think it needs a bit of customization like a character creator where you can make your own character when you go into it you need to pay 2 primo gems to make your own character and it will also ask if you want your own animations and moves witch cost 10 primo gems you can choose yes or no when you get into the character creator it will ask if you want a male, female or a small female after selecting it will ask your characters name when after you Type it in it will show step one the eyes you will be able to customize the eyelashes eye color and eye shape and eye size after that step 2 is mouth you will be able to choose from cat mouth normal mouth and squiggly mouth and lipstick step 3 is hair you will be able to choose bangs side bangs back hair and ponytails and colors step4 will be what type of character you want a cat like diona a elf or a human step5 will be to choose your skin color step6 will be for the ones who payed the primo gems for custom animations and moves if your on a pc you can upload your own animations and moves after all of that you will chose your weapon, hat, glasses, hoodie, top, skirt, socks and dress if you want you can change your character for free later on that’s all I got to say as I said overall the game is good but it needs customization thanks if you put this in the game..Cute pun pun 2Version: 1.5.0
Pretty decent gameI have played this game since its release, and so far, I still think it’s a good game. I really love the beautiful graphics and characters! The storyline and the voice acting is great, too. I also enjoy doing the events! I love the Co-op feature; it’s more fun to play with other players. As an F2P, I can assure you that with enough patience and grinding, you will do fine. It’s a self-paced game, so you don’t have to worry about trying to catch up with other players. Alright, now that I have said the pros, here are the cons of this game: the gacha rates, how little primogems we earn, and the grinding. It’s hard to get a five-star character. I get that, but after maybe like 4-5 x10 pulls and only getting duplicate characters & weapons? It’s hard to earn primogems to begin with, and the gacha rates does not make too happy about it. Like I said, it is also hard to earn primogems since you earn little by little each day. I’m not complaining too much about the grinding, but I will just tell you that it gets harder and harder as you level your characters up. In doing so, you must have a lot of patience and time. All-in-all, this game is pretty good despite some flaws here and there. I understand that the developer needs to make money, hence the pretty low gacha rates. However, I think this game is worth playing if you overlook the low gacha rates lol..Chivo is a goatVersion: 1.2.0
Great Game!So at first I was going to play this on PC, yet my computer is pretty slow and this game doesn’t work very well on it, so I usually play in my phone. So far I’m at Adventure Rank 27, and I’ve had almost no problems with the game. The storyline is great and there’s almost always something to do whether it’s the main story, side quests, daily commissions, or just exploring. The one thing that’s bad about this, as I’ve seen mentioned a lot before, is the resin system. The resin is the main part of the game that helps you level faster, but it regenerates at 1 per 8 minutes with a limit of 120. This can lead to a boring hour of just wandering and waiting for the resin to regenerate. Now onto the effect it has on my device. I’ve seen others say that it heats up your device pretty quickly, but I’d say it’s only a tiny bit faster at heating your device up as other games are. Now the devise I use is an IPhone SE that I got in October 2020, so it’s fairly new and had lots of storage when I decided to download. I’m glad I had lots of storage available because this game takes up around 4GB and more of storage on your device. The 4GB was expected thought because of the amazing game graphics and quality of gameplay, which at first glance does not look like it could fit on a mobile device. I’ll continue to play the game and I can’t wait for new updates and more stories!.Kailyn SanfordVersion: 1.1.0
Astounding.I never usually play these kinds of games. Lately even, I’ve been playing things like Escape from Tarkov and have been fiddling around in Conan Exiles. But this game is insane. Maybe I’m crazy, but at first I thought it would be one of those overcrowded mmo’s with a poorly written story but I have been and stayed intrigued in even side quests! The music is beautiful, the way it was written so well for all the different places and events, I love the effort they put into it. Graphics are pretty good, they’re not intended to be top of the line realistic or anything so for the type of game it is, the graphics are quite beautiful. This is a game where you’re not required to pay to play (of course, it makes things easier), despite it being free. You can actually earn currency and things such as primogems just from quests and exploring, and leveling up becomes really difficult after a while but it’s obviously still possible. The game is all around easy to grasp and the characters are each unique and well made. I’ve been glued to this game for the past few weeks and that’s saying something for myself. I usually like a game for a couple days and throw it away. But this, I haven’t played a game this much since Divinity II and Ark. I really love everything that has been put into this game and can’t wait to see where it goes..Reagan SimpsonVersion: 1.1.0
Hate it or Love it-Opinions out of the way I love the game, I believe it to be a very good Free to Play game. Especially as a Free to Play mobile game, *cough* PC is better. Anyways I can see why it’s off putting for some, “it’s just a breath of the wild clone”, “the gacha rates are terrible”, “it’s over hype”, and e.t.c.
-Honestly if you seen Free to Play games out there they are always “copies” or just plain ripoff of other games. For instance, PUBG and Fornite, Overwatch and Paladins, and many more. People tend to side with games that they played first and hate the others. An I do see that many of the stuff from Breath of the Wild is being copied in this game.
-Ok for those who complain about the gacha rates, you obviously haven’t played any gacha games or maybe you just have bad luck. Also it’s a Free to Play game made in Asia, what do you expect. If you can’t be a whale, flop!
-Can’t really say much on the overhype thing, I too get that feeling with other games sometimes. All I can really say is to play it and find out, like just play “Free to Play” for like a good amount of time to see if you like it and if not then that’s ok.
-In the end, in all I think that Genshin Impact is hopefully putting a higher standard on game quality for other mobile game and gacha games. Just trying to say that I’m Addicted to this game, if you got far to reading this then pats on you. 👍.PocketilandtvVersion: 1.0.2
Playing this game without spending money..This game is incredible! Endgame can be quite slow but as of recently, they’ve been leaving us with amazing places to explore that are so beautiful and fun! The challenge of some stuff has been making it a lot more interesting. If you are into lore, this story has a nice plot to it as well and I definitely think it’s worth mentioning. Besides that, you can play without spending any money. This has its ups and downs, mostly downs to some so I think I should mention about it. I definitely have had a better experience with this than others so I’d like to warn and recommend some things if you plan to play f2p. As a f2p(free to play) this game can become a double edged sword when you are working with the gacha system. I cannot stress how many times people will expect the gacha system to work in their favor and then quite the game because it didn’t work their way..! If you have to Rely on Luck to get the character you want, don’t expect to get them! Xd You shouldn't rely on luck, I’ve seen it through my brothers, it does not end up well half the time. Also, plan ahead! There will be times in the game play when you will be guaranteed the next character you want! So plan it out well and save your primogems (the Gacha currency for wishing)for that certain character..JenstadeVersion: 2.3.0
This game is fricking awesomeFirst of all let me say I was pleasantly suprised at what this game could offer!! There is so much stuff to do and it never runs out! Now let me say I NEVER write reviews but this game blew my mind. The reason I am giving it 4 stars is because of the lack of changing clothes option you would think with all these options and customizational paths you would be able to at least change your clothes or your hair it would be so cool if you could change clothes or even your hair!! Like you could cut it or make it longer or different hairstyles things like that of course you would have to pay for the clothes and getting your hair done. I don’t think you should be able to change your hair color though since you are looking for someone that looks like you so being a whole different color of hair wouldn’t really match the description. So yeah you don’t have to come to the hair thing super quickly just start off with a clothing store in Mondstadt and I notice they mention they know you are not from around there when they see or mention your clothes so make different clothing in different stores but accustomed to the city. But start off small and just continue updating the game I think it would add a whole other aspect to the game making it even more fun than it already is! I know it would for me!! Other than that the game is fantastic!.Gejus rhdVersion: 1.2.0
Really fun gameThis is a wonderful RPG with like-able characters who have great abilities. I stopped playing this game because it was too expensive! I pulled 2 5-star weapons other than the one I wanted. I was guaranteed to get Baal's weapon the next time I pulled a 5-star weapon, but at what cost? I spent so much money to pull for a weapon that I never got. The only 5-star character I enjoyed is Eula. But it took weeks or maybe months to get decent artifacts. Even if you don't spend money I think you will be disappointed because the rewards aren't worth the amount of time it takes to earn them. I think that it should a little easier to pull 5 stars and decent artifacts. I also think the daily commission rewards should slightly increase with a players Adventure Rank. I don't think getting rewards should be easy but I shouldn't feel like I am playing the lottery either.
I think there should be reruns for popular characters like Venti, Xiao, and Hu-Tao. A separate banner that changes periodically for past banners would be great. There are so many players who are saving primogems for characters in previous banners. It's disappointing when you play a character's story quest, get to use the characters on trial and then thats it.
The world itself is amazing and I love the stories as well. I am still a big fan of Venti and other characters. I may play the again later in the future..I_just_ wannaVersion: 2.1.0
Pls download, you’re not gonna regret itYeah so please ignore the fact that this is SUPER short. I wrote a whole essay then my computer had the AUDACITY to glitch out and hit the cancel button.
So I’ve been playing Genshin since around may of 2021. And since I started playing I’ve loved it. The reason I felt pushed to write this is because recently changed servers and started from the beginning. I had forgotten how no matter what kind of games you like Genshin will always have something for you to do. There are so many quests and things to grind. And if you don’t like grinding there’s stuff for you too. There’s so much diversity in gameplay, so many characters, and so many different places to explore. I have at least two friends who only play to take pictures of the sunsets in game for desktop backgrounds (it hysterical to watch and listen to them talk about “finding the perfect angle” or “exactly which side the sun should be on”). Plus I myself have become a completely different person because of Genshin. Seeing all of these characters being themselves, and not caring about the public eye, fictional or not, made me feel more confident in myself.
Anyway I would like to thank mihoyo for making this amazing game. And if you are contemplating downloading Genshin, don’t hesitate, I’m confident you’re gonna love it. 💗.PfftEneroDogVersion: 2.2.0
It could be a bit easier.So first problem is getting the materials, you can either buy them ONCE at souvenir shops only once, there’s never going to restock, which is a stupid idea if you’re gonna put them there. You can’t choose what day to get those materials you need, you have to wait every other day for them. Upgrading characters and weapons is already hard as it is, like getting something from a boss and it taking it forever to get the boss gone. Getting materials is so hard I can’t even level up without having the mobs being a higher lvl than me. Second, it’s so hard to do a story and world quest because all the jobs to get rid of the mobs are hard because they’re a higher lvl, like I can’t even finish one story quest or even archon quest without having to quit them because they’re just that hard, and it takes the fun out of it. I may sound like I’m complaining but even my friends agree, and it just brings our mood down. I do enjoy the stories but get upset because I have to quit them just because I’m not able to remove a mob. I still enjoy each day and still have fun on it because of small little jobs to do, but even they are sometimes hard. I still do enjoy I like the character designs, and the elements and can’t wait till more new things, more characters, more places. But those are the main problems for me..KazfamiluVersion: 2.7.0
Gorgeous, immersive, fun gameplay 💕Believe the online hype—Genshin Impact is a gem in every area you can think of, and it’s singlehandedly raised my expectations for games to the sky. I actually can’t praise this game enough. The graphics and art are the best I’ve seen—being open world makes it even better—and the entire aesthetic down to the settings screen is super clean and pleasing to look at. Soundtrack is absolutely gorgeous as well! The characters are all so lovable (!!!) with beautiful designs. The actual gameplay is made unique and interesting by the option to have 4 party members you can switch between and an elemental reaction system (it doesn’t get boring). And aside from all that, what really surprised me was how invested I became in the story of the world. Everything is designed to add to the incredible worldbuilding, and it just creates an incredibly immersive experience. The only downsides I can think of are that it gets grind-y in late game and eats up a lot of your time (that’s an element in any RPG and to be expected) and that it takes up a huge chunk of space on your phone. Be careful about starting if you’re really busy, because the world totally sucked me in, especially since new content and events are constantly being released. :’)) All in all, please give this game a shot—there’s something in it for everyone!.SeruliiVersion: 2.0.0
Gorgeous and freshI’m not the type to write a review but there are so many wonderful things about this game that I’m DYING to say. First of all the art is gorgeous and clean, not just the map but the characters too. Secondly is the music. The music was performed by an entire orchestra which really helps set the mood. In a way they’re soundtrack almost rivals some of Nintendo’s tracks.
No matter how beautiful the art and soundtrack it needs to have good plot and gameplay to succeed. And I can say that this game does have that. The mechanics aren’t too difficult even on mobile which says a lot. Even though mobile commonly has problems like mistapping and sometimes an annoying movement system they haven’t shown up enough to damper my opinion of it. The characters are all different with unique skills and abilities which is exciting and fun. The plot is immersive and interesting. Also the grinding system of loot and resin gives the player a reason to come back.
There are a couple problems of course such as low drop rates for artifacts and characters but that’s how gatcha games are. Also since it’s open world it takes up a LOT of space and memory. Not for older phone users thats for sure. Overall I guess one complaint is that Paimon, the sidekick, can sound kinda annoying but I switched to Japanese VA and I think that helps a lot.
Overall 10/10 great work Mihoyo.Jinx9100Version: 1.2.0
Amazingly Written Game!I’ve been playing Genshin Impact for 3 months now, and I’m AR 46, so I’d consider myself well versed with it. It has beautiful regions to explore and interesting characters to play with! I easily spend hours on it daily, and with Inazuma coming out in a few weeks, I’m very excited to keep playing! HOWEVER, this game is quite difficult to play as a mobile player. The controls themselves are not hard to maneuver, as I’m quite used to touch screen controls. The problem with this game is that it crashes very frequently. Though I have noticed the patterns on the times that it crashes, it is very bothersome and annoying as it disrupts my playing and adds up extra time on the loading screen. I still have about 10 extra GB of storage, my WiFi works perfectly fine, and my graphics settings have been set to the lowest, but every time i try to co-op domains, the game kicks me out. It’s frustrating and kind of embarrassing when you return to their world. This may be because of my own device and not the game, however crashing seems to be a frequent problem. Despite these technical issues however, I do recommend playing this game and giving it a shot! It is without a doubt one of the best ever created with so much detail and effort to make such a lively world! Thank you, Mihoyo :)).Asterin ;)Version: 1.6.0
2 year mark player opinionI’m slightly burnt out, but that happens with all games no matter where you go. However, as a somewhat busy person, quests are dropping out at just the right time so that I have good content when I need it. What about the representation? About the lack of representation, I completely understand. It’s a problem, but not the end of the world. Not everyone from the Middle East is dark skinned, so slightly tone complaints down if you have any. I see too many people screaming that everyone should be dark. Is genshin expensive? I never topped up for any primogems. There’s 17 five stars on this account from zero buying. That’s way more than enough. Why are all bodies so unrealistic? Marketing purposes. You’d be shocked to see how many people would skip out on an overweight or average looking character if genshin ever made one. Don’t blame the company, it’s because of us. I’d hate to admit it, that’s just how people work. Is grinding hard? Not until the year and a half mark for me. Then I hated it. Until I got a new character, and the hype got me going. Thing is, grinding for the amount of time I did was enough to clear the endgame. No one is making you eternally grind. Genshin has flaws such as artifacts, etc. but I still play because the archon quests always hit hard, and wishing your hard work into characters is a nice feeling. 8.5/10..SeverelagVersion: 4.2.0
Love! The characters tho…Hi! I just would like to say that this game is the most fun I’ve ever had! It is engaging, enthralling, and very nice. I like the American AND the Japanese dub. Some of the VA’s you’ve hired are relaxing to listen to. Especially Zhongli’s voice. But, speaking of Zhongli, I have no way to wish for the characters that I would like!! I say this because acquiring primogems, while easy enough, just isn’t enough. I usually save up..but there’s no telling what the next character(or weapon) will be up for the wishing. When I do wish for them, I don’t get them, and only get the essence of a character or some weapons that aren’t…prime. Don’t get me wrong, the anticipation of the wish is AMAZING and I love receiving these gifts, but as someone who has tried like, 9 times to get 5 star characters, I’ve only gotten new characters 4 out of 10 times, and only one five start character. It’s just simply to hard to get characters and nice weapons is all I’m saying. Other than that, its an amazing game, with beautiful scenery, lovely, silky voices, and an exciting and gripping plot line. But, we cant forget about the fight mechanics, and the EPIC BOSS BATTLES! I love this game! And the characters! I am grateful for whatever comes my way. I just wish getting characters and the weapons you want were easier! Thats all from me! Bye bye!.GojoSatoruIsBestBoiVersion: 2.5.0
HAD to get to InazumaGood game but I wish Hoyoverse would add something like a market you could go to to get character ascending materials from different regions a player hasn’t reached yet. I have both Yoimiya and Sayu and I can’t level up Yoimiya past level 40 and Sayu past level 20 because I haven’t reached Inazuma yet. I think a lot of players would appreciate this if Hoyoverse added it into the game. Also if u could make the gacha system better that would be amazing. I’m adventure rank 43 and only have three five stars(besides the traveler and Aloy) and only one of them is a limited time banner. Then with Aloy it would be cool if Hoyoverse could add a exclusive area for her, since she’s kind of just there and not important to the story at all. And since Hoyoverse added Fischl to Honkai Impact maybe they could add a Honkai Impact character to Genshin. A idea I have is for a new element and weapon. If Hoyoverse was going to add new elements and weapons in. A new element could be Corruption (a element exclusive to dps characters) and a new weapon could be a Scythe because those two seem to fit well together. The corruption region could be based off of South Korea with a cyberpunky style. The last thing is that I wish you could buy stuff and customize Paimon, like how you can get new skins and gliders for characters. Also my phone is dying AND plz add more Adventure Ranks :) why is it 24 gb 😭😭.!!!12Version: 3.7.0
My favorite game ever! 我最喜欢的游戏！This game is really attractive to me, especially the plot. As a plot party, whether it is the shaping of the characters in this game, the direction of the plot, the layout of the environment or the big world view, it is almost perfect for me, and the sense of substitution is also good. Very strong, it makes me feel as if I have really entered this world, and experienced adventures with so many partners with different personalities but full of strengths and positive energy. I really hope that this game will continue to win more awards, but it is also sincere I hope that the final ending and plot of this game can make people get what they want, and don’t create too much sadness. Maybe I invested too much, but when I think that maybe any one or even more partners who have experienced so much with me in the end will do it for "I My heart aches when I sacrifice my wish and protect this world. Thanks again for the game genshin impact and the production team behind genshin impact (including the dubbing team, director, planning, etc.), thank you! 这个游戏真的非常吸引我，尤其是剧情，作为一名剧情党，不管是这个游戏中角色的塑造，剧情的走向，环境的布置或是大世界观于我而言都近乎于完美，代入感也很强，让我感到仿佛我真的进入了这个世界，和那么多性格迥异却都充满优点和正能量的伙伴们一同经历冒险，真的很希望这个游戏继续斩获更多的奖项，但是也是由衷的希望这个游戏最后的结局和剧情能够让人如愿以偿一点，不要制造过多伤感，也许是我投入过多，但一想到也许最后和我一起经历这么多的任何之一甚至更多伙伴会为了“我”的愿望和守护这个世界而牺牲时我就会心痛，再次感谢genshin impact这个游戏以及genshin impact背后的制作团队（包括配音团队以及导演，策划等等），感谢！感谢原神.魈魈自力更生Version: 3.5.0
Such a Great GameI’ve never enjoyed games where you do quests and have a major storyline, but this game is SO GOOD. The stories are amazing, as are the characters, and all of it meshes together to make it an awesome game. The animation is top-notch. I was always so amazed at how they add even the smallest details, like how when you go up stairs the characters slow down. The elements the characters have adds a whole level to the game, but they didn’t copy it the way others have. Each character has a unique part of that element when they use it. The world is such an amazing place, and as you travel along, you feel like you’re actually discovering a new world. The pulling characters system is such a great idea, and while I get very frustrated if I can’t get the character I want, it’s really exciting to get it when I do. The multiplayer system is such a great option as well, and it lets you help other players or get help from people. The game being FREE is just another aspect that gets it so much support from me. While you can buy items in the shop, there’s absolutely no reason you need to buy things in the game other than to get them easier.
All in all, just play it. A lot of different people enjoy this game, and if you’re reading this, you’re probably considering downloading the game, so please do..KalifirebreathVersion: 2.0.0
Slowly turns into a boring routineWhen I first started this game, I had a blast, I did. I’ll admit that at first it was giving me way too many botw vibes and I was very hesitant on playing because I thought it seemed like a copy and paste. But then I gave it a chance and it was worth it? Until you get to a higher AR or hit the cap, then it turned into a chore and grind fest. 100% every region, no more gems for you until either a new region becomes available or they give you another event to do, they become scarce until that point, and even then as soon as that happens, everyone is on it and have already cleaned out the place within days. The resin cap could be higher, like 220 instead so we can craft 5 condensed resin for domains instead of wasting gems to get more resin, which the cost goes up higher the more you try to refill. Yes the abyss gives you 600 gems but it’s a weekly thing and we only have so many days to pull on banners. The only thing you’ll really look forward to after reaching a high AR is dailies, grinding for whatever you need like exp, gold, artifacts, talent mats, boss mats and weapon mats, and once you’re out of resin and have nothing else to possibly do, you log off and wait till the next day to repeat the process. Like I said, it becomes a chore and honestly really repetitive when you think about it. Try it if you want but don’t say I didn’t warn you. Good luck and enjoy what you can..ToxicFooVersion: 4.0.0
Amazing game but…They desperately need to change the resin system. Up to about AR 45 it might not seem like a big deal but when you get to end game content it is really frustrating to have to wait over 20hrs for about 10-20min worth of game play which is often disappointing due to the RNG system. The RNG system wouldn’t be an issue if a very large amount of resin was available or a massive cut to the cost of basically everything that costs resin. I just want to play the game and have fun rolling the RNG system for artifacts but I can’t do that cause of the resin now that I’m AR 50. If they don’t fix this soon, this incredible game is going to fizzle out. Very limited game play mixed with low rewards in the end game will be this games demise.
To Mihoyo who will probably never see this. This is bad business on your end. If someone can’t truly farm for an artifact or character/weapon experience, than why would they spend their money on a new character once they are AR 50 or higher? The process of acquiring the gear for a new character and leveling them and their gear up becomes a gigantic chore that takes away from the ability to increase any current character’s strength.
eg: I didn’t bother rolling much for Eula and multiple other’s because I didn’t have the resources to level them up without holding back on the character’s I need to be stronger for spiral abyss..Cerulean_WolfVersion: 1.6.0
Incredibly FunI started playing this game because my wife enjoys it and wanted me to help her with some of the tougher bosses haha. Suffice to say, we’re both practically addicted at this point 😅 this game provides hours and hours of fun, and updates regularly with new content, so theres always a reason to keep playing. I can see why people end up spending an awful lot on the gatcha mechanic, but i’ve been managing just fine earning my primogems by grinding. While there is the option to spend money, this is by NO means a ‘pay to win’ kind of game; regardless of how many cool characters you collect, if you want to complete the story, beat tough bosses, and upgrade your fav characters and weapons, you have to actually invest your time and get good. which i appreciate! I’ve been having a blast with it, and the fandom for this game (on twitter, tiktok, and tumblr especially) is very funny as well haha. if you liked breath of the wild at all, you’d probably enjoy this as well and pick it up very easily. I can see why some may think its a rip off, as a lot of the in game mechanics are VERY similar, but i will say this game has an entirely unique story, and a ton of things that make it a Very distinct game from BOTW. I would say its a game that would greatly appeal to anyone who enjoyed BOTW though, so check it out!.TipsyBanditVersion: 3.5.0
The new update… just no. ( I rated this a 5 stars so hoyoverse sees this )The game starts out pretty fun, there was lots to do and I was wishing all the time because of how easy it was to get primos. But I’m AR 55 now, and I’ve stopped playing for a while because the game has gotten more boring, and it’s so hard to get primo gems other than events and some of the story or world quests. I’ve been keeping up with the new updates and saw that Sumeru was gonna come out. I’m Arab, and I was excited to see that it was based off of the Middle East / South Asia. But I was so disappointed to see you guys doing the same thing Aladdin did, mix up Middle Eastern and South Asian culture, there was barely any good culture representation of South Asian / Middle Eastern. Also the biggest thing, why are all the characters pale? The Middle East is diverse and not all people from there are tan some are paler or on the darker side of the spectrum, but there was only ONE character that was only a bit tan. And none of the characters had traditional clothes, or curly hair, and there was no Arabic / Hindi dub. I also didn’t see much rep for South Asia either. And being completely honest, coming from an Arab I expected much better. I don’t Know if this is racism, or just Hoyoverse didn’t do the proper research but either way I think this should be fixed..Jana.hVersion: 2.8.0
Rough.As the title says, Genshin is a pretty unpolished game in some areas. The lack of rewards during the anniversary, the resin system, the artifice to system (which was almost seemingly implemented into the game to work against the players progress) are all evidence of a game leading to failure. Quite frankly, this game would have been dead months ago if resin wasn’t a way for mihoyo to time gate some of the game’s LITTLE content. You might be wondering how I can say that the resin is a bad system while also acknowledging that it’s what keeps the players playing, but my point is that players feel like they’re missing out opportunities to get artifacts and whatnot and that they feel that they’re actively killing their account by NOT draining their resin, so they feel forced to play to prevent that. One of the main reasons this game is still going actually is because there’s no competition for the game to compete with. Honkai? Not open world. Blue protocol? Doesn’t exist yet. Tower of fantasy? Not out yet. ZZZ? Not out yet, and even if it was it’s also CREATED AND OWNED by Hoyoverse (Honkai too.) They’re literally competing with themselves. As soon as an anime rpg open world game comes out which is very well done and isn’t plagued by the same problems Genshin is, then the game will really be hit hard player wise. It’s player return count is already dwindling every time a new update comes out. This isn’t even half of my issues with this game..FwpharcydeVersion: 2.7.0
Recommend! Things you should know before downloadingGenshin Impact is an amazing game! I love the scenery and the character designs are so pretty! The combat is fun, and characters each have something unique and charming. Before downloading however, you should know that this game takes up A LOT OF SPACE. Many people are complaining about the download time and file size. Especially when downloading later along the road, the updates will pile up greatly. Make sure you have a device with lots of space for future updates. Secondly, many of you may have read about the game’s gacha system. You make ‘wishes’ to get new weapons and characters. When writing this review, I saw people rating this game 1 star because they spent money on the game but didn’t get the character they wanted, calling the game a scam, etc. However, this is not true. The game is enjoyable without making any payments. I am completely f2p, and I have gotten most of the characters I wish for. I have lost 50/50 twice to Qiqi and Keqing, but I’m glad I did, because they are wonderful additions to my team. This game isn’t made for people to dump their money on getting characters. You’re supposed to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the game and story. Hopefully you don’t get swayed by bad reviews, and hopefully you enjoy Genshin Impact (:.AuejcgsVersion: 2.5.0
Great game! Just few issues that bother me…It’s a great game, incredible storyline, and absolutely astonishing graphics that are just alluring. Though I feel as if this game is P2W (Pay 2 win) and as a F2P (Free 2 play) person on the game, it feels unfair. We battle mobs, get chests, and in the mail get food but barley any primos unless there are events and let’s add that we almost never get primos from the chests, waypoints, or things we do. We get okay amounts for the main quests and sometimes side quests, but to get characters we want for banners? It’s barley enough. I’ve tried multiple ways to get primos, but they never worked. What really just bothers me is the fact that the primogem or genesis crystal prices are VERY high for barley anything, and I don’t want to pay for something that’ll probably get used quickly with the chance of not even getting the characters I want. It’s also unfair to have to play HOURS on a game to barley get rewards. Finally, the chance of not even getting the characters we want. It bothers me to think that I save up to loose the 50/50 or my pity drops until the guaranteed. If we can’t get good characters, we can’t develop well in the game. Let’s also add that if we do get a good character, if not given correct weapons or artifacts, they will be really weak. Other than these few issues, I find the game really good..Pîxłè dràgôñ àñgłê màśtèrVersion: 4.0.0
The game doesn’t translate well to mobileGenshin impact is a great game. very fun to play, engaging story, and aside from being a BoW clone it has an element of uniqueness to it. Over all a great game, but just not quite there on mobile. Has a lot of lag, but on top of that doesn’t provide the must haves for mobile gaming. The game doesn’t provide an option to rearrange ur hub layout, which is super surprising Bc this is a simple service that is provided by almost all newer mobile games. The game isn’t claw sensitive, for example if ur using an archer and you do an aimed shot, the game doesn’t allow u to hold the shoot bottom with one finger and aim with another which is really annoying. It’s not always a problem but it definitely get in the way. The game also isn’t compatible with a controller which is also surprising. It’s seems like the games has an obsolete approach to mobile gaming which is weird Bc the game legit just came out. Aside from the hiccups it’s a great game, just a way better game on every other platform. Take for example Fortnite mobile, epic was able to take the experience players had on pc and console and give it to mobile players. To the point where some mobile players were able to out preform some console players. That’s was amazing on epics part. Genshin hasn’t be able to make the game comfortable to mobile players and that why I’m giving it a 3. If this was a review on p4 I’d give it a 5. Devs not to make the game a better experience on mobile.KingVII412Version: 1.0.2
My Favorite GameI never write reviews but this game deserves 5 stars and it especially does now that spoiled brats are rating the game 1 star just because a free game didn’t give them a tesla for anniversary. I also never spend money on games but this was the first game that made me want to spend money because it is that good and I feel like the company deserved it. You can enjoy this game entirely for free though and still get lots of cool 5 star characters and weapons. You will get tons of primogems (currency used to get the rarest weapons and characters) just by doing quests, achievements, and having fun playing the game. Gacha system aside, Genshin has stunning graphics and an even better soundtrack. They consistently release a new major update to the game every 40 days so you will never be bored. I’m still in awe that this masterpiece which is now my favorite game was free right from the beginning. Anyone complaining about anniversary rewards should remember how generous Mihoyo is already… Seriously it’s a multi-platform game with free major updates every 40 days and they still give tons of primogems to us. People who compare Mihoyo to EA obviously haven’t played EA games. If they were like EA, Genshin would cost $60 and every update would be DLC instead of free AND we’d have to buy Genshin 22 for $60 the next year💀.DiscocloudVersion: 2.1.0
So long partner o7Genshin has been one of the best games ive played and will be for a while the fan base yeah can get a little wild at times and yeah i disagree with somethings but over all one of the best times ive had mostly all the people ive played with were kind and the characters were great the story was amazing and i felt at ease and happy the whole way through i was an F2P and ive made it all the way to AR 56 and almost cleared spiral abyss with 35 stars the whole game was fun and i enjoyed every second
but all good things must come to an end with genshin taking up to all my storage i cant keep playing and once inazuma came it was over but the day before the update i did my last wish and tripled crowned my childe on his b-day :D but now since i dont have a pc or anything else to play genshin on i guess its over the road has ended and my time is over i would have loved to play the new update i was even saving for yoimiya but i guess its time to leave ill still stay in the fandom but never be able to play :( good bye genshin ive had my fun but goodbye i wish everyone who reads my story luck to get whatever 5* you want now or in the future goodbye take your time on everything no rush all journeys must come to an end but the memories we made along the way will stay with us till the end.. o7.Tart_0Version: 2.0.0
Amazing game ever!! but one problem...Hello, so um I started playing this game for a week and a half and it’s very impressive to be honest. I love everything about it although there’s not much I can say because this game is already amazing as EVER, the animations of the characters are hella awesome but problem is when it gets to the animation part it lags and slows down the animation and the voices are still going on- and when I log in and start playing for like 5 to 10 Minutes it just restarts and I’m back in my background of my device I have this problem ever since I started Genshin Impact. I’ve played Honkai Impact as well but no problems with it. At the same time I’m also thinking if it’s just that something may be wrong with my device... I put it to 5 stars cause I love this game already even though it lags and crashes down for some reason I KNOW that you guys are improving everything about this game and that’s cool it’s just a bit frustrating because I kept going back and fourth log in and then out, I hope you guys can fix this problem sooner or later?.. but I’ll still keep playing Genshin Impact because I have already sell my soul to it lol ( I’m not good with feedbacks but hope this explains enough of my problem, I’m sure other people are having the same experience as me as well!.. ) and so thank you for reading this..LiliancherryVersion: 1.0.2
Outstanding With Drawbacks (pros&cons)Pros: The game is beautiful with amazing graphics, exploration, music and unique characters. The storyline is interesting and (mostly) well-written, and higher-rarity characters are not 100% required to finish everything in the game. It has simple mechanics and interface, meaning that even if you don’t normally play video games, you can still pick up on what to do pretty quickly. There is plenty of content for you to do when you *first* start. Will keep you entertained for hours, days, weeks, months, maybe years. Cons: you get burnt out a while after finishing the storyline and some farming for your characters. Artifact system has WAY too much RNG which is one of if not the system that burns players out most. Events are limited and once they go away, the important lore (and rewards) go away as well. Endgame is basically nonexistent. Little to no interaction with playerbase; company is very greedy. Extremely expensive (although that’s not a surprise). Characters are region locked, making Inazuman (and potentially others) characters inaccessible to new players who might have obtained them. Diversity is lacking and one character (Dori) is *possibly* orientalist. Overall, very beautiful and entertaining game. However, there are quite a few things that could improve it to make it even better..TereandResashows reviews🐤🐣🐥Version: 3.3.0
I don’t like it but I play itI give the game 3 stars because it’s actually entertaining and addicting but there are lots of things I don’t really like in the game. First of all some unrealistic things. When you are swimming and the character OBVIOUSLY can stand up and stop swimming, they keep swimming.. Also that when you’re in Inazuma doing an Inazuma quest, the thunders still hit you when talking to people in the quest… Now I would like to talk about the characters… every single NPC girl is either an adventurer with black or brown short hair or also a seller with blonde hair. There are not black people in the game (I wouldn’t consider Xinyan). And this… I haven’t seen any “flat” girl in the game that is not a short character. And (I am not being homophobic)the boys BARELY dress like boys and act like ones. There is nothing wrong with not doing it but there is barely people in the game like that. I think it should be easier to get level up materials. I am AR 35 (EXP 14,000/7,000) and my characters are mostly on LV 40 but some are on 40/50 because I can’t find materials to level them up. I am stuck on this rank and for me it doesn’t really makes sense that all the extra EXP it’s made into mora… 7,000 mora it’s too little for all the effort that I put into it.. I can’t complete the ascension quest 2 because it keeps telling me I am under level. And well I play the game because it’s too addicting but I don’t like it..Isa07062603Version: 3.7.0
Amazing Game but this company is being greedyI absolutely love this game and have spent more than I would like to admit on it. It’s one of my all time favorite games. That being said this anniversary they showed up that they do not not care about their fans with the rewards they gave. Worse yet is their silence and deleting of comments they don’t like so I guess I’ll give a bad review even though I love their product. in addition they have released a character who clearly needed more time in the oven and looks like they don’t play their own game when designing. They have changed the skill descriptions after players summoned a character to fit their narrative on why it doesn’t work with certain things. In the year I have been playing endgame has been non existent and most of what you do is chores to get your meager amount of currency to get stuff and get better and better artifacts that there is nothing requiring you to be so well built . I highly recommend this game if you want a good casual phone game that can be played on other devices. That being said know this company doesn’t respect you are your time with them. They will always give you the bare minimum resource wise. I did not want to make a bad review but at this point they are not listening to their fans and actively silencing people.
Edit : they ended up giving some extra rewards so I’ll give them back a couple stars.RykersixxVersion: 2.2.0
Amazing.This game is really addicting, and really fun to play! The graphics are absolutely wonderful, and the character’s outfits and personalities are really great too! The amount of effort put into this game is astonishing, and in my opinion the game itself has no problem to it, except for the fact that it does take up a lot of storage, but that isn’t something that could be helped, and in my opinion it was worth it. I really love how the game is actually playable even if we don’t pay money, since in some games, we might have to pay money to unlock some things, but we don't necessarily need money in this game to get a lot of characters, since the game already gave many ways to earn primo gems! I was also looking over the 1 star ratings, and I thought that they were all ridiculous, with most of them just asking for a certain character. I do think that it would be great if MiHoyo can make some clarifications if there is a “canon” MC, since there has been a few people who think that Aether is the canon MC, while others believe that there is no canon MC. It would be great if we can actually get a response from the developers about this situation instead of people continuously debating on the canon MC. Anyway, thank you for you time reading this review, have a wonderful day/night!.GalaxyKitty978Version: 1.4.0
Truly Stunning Mobile GameI was on the fense about getting this game for a while until finally I decided to give it a try. I was pleasantly impressed to find out that not only were their advertisements true to the actual game (as most others simply lie), but the gameplay itself feels fully fledged. This is the sort of game you’d expect from a console, and I gotta say it’s nice to see the effort that went into this. The combat style is engaging and fun. I also love that while it sticks to the familiar mobile trend of having in-app purchases, the game itself was free and my experience has thus far not been dampened despite the fact that I have not spend a single penny on it. It has given me little need to do so, and that’s awesome. I must also note that I am playing this on a more powerful phone as I understand that others have complained about lag, and I don’t blame them, this game file is HUGE, but is you are fortunate enough to experience a lag-free gameplay, (if not something close to it) then it really is beautiful. As mentioned before, the advertisements you see about this game are true. I loved hearing the side stories of the characters, as well as their own tutorials on how to use them. Very well done. I hope they stay true to this for the times ahead.
Also, Paimon is adorable and NOT food!😜 (To each their own😉).The Dragon OverlordVersion: 1.3.0
Amazing but please read!This game is by far, one of the most amazing games that I’ve played. They added so much detail into this game and the animations and real 3D motions are amazing. The updates, features of this game is simply the best along with beautiful characters that you grind for.
If I were to make a suggestion, it’d be to have an alternative where you aren’t required to download everything from the start. The issue with the current version is that it’s required to download the full version once you get to a certain point and can’t play if you don’t have it downloaded. I’d love to keep playing in the level I’m currently at, but I’m running very low on storage space but I can’t play unless I download it which I can’t. Hopefully you will make an alternative way to play the game while saving a bit of storage. If you can make this happen, I will never ever even have to think about deleting genshin impact because its the best game I’ve ever played! P.S. Any chance you could make it available for Macbook players to download Genshin and not just PCs? I know the Macs might over heat but I’d love to be able to play on computer. (Partially because of the fact that my computer has more storage) Thank you so muchhhh! Keep doing amazing creating/developing your game!.This is good like goodVersion: 4.0.0
Better than Breath of the WildI know that title sounds very questionable, but this game is amazing. Firstly, it’s free to play which is really shocking because the graphics, character designs, and overall how nicely the game runs is excellent quality. For BotW I had to pay $60 and didn’t even play for more than 2 hours, but Genshin Impact is completely free! Paying for primogems is completely optional and doesn’t effect gameplay at all. Second, the storyline is very intriguing. Some may argue that once you get to high Adventure Ranks and wait for the story to be updated it can be boring, I disagree. There are plenty of commissions and quests to keep you entertained. Plus, there are domains, bosses, spiral abyss, and events! Another thing is the characters. Each character is unique, has a fantastic design, and interesting gameplay. Seeing a character in a quest has me saving primogems for their banner every time! Speaking of design, Teyvat is such a large and beautiful world. Sometimes I just walk around and take it the sights. The songs, the view, it can be an action packed liar or a tranquil mountain. In conclusion, Genshin Impact is definitely worth the download and it’s completely free, in fact it’s probably one of the best games out there and my personal favorite. Download Genshin Impact, it’s absolutely worth it..MddddddddddddddddddVersion: 1.5.0
Do you not care about us..?I don’t know what’s happening over there. But the way you don’t listen to us, and how you treat feels like betrayal. It’s disappointing, you know what I’m talking about. 100 primogems? A chance for a cosplay master, or a art major to get an award that doesn’t even be redeemed fully without waiting? Mora?? Like we can’t get that by doing simple things. And you just leave us the 10x pull. Leaving us 30-40 pulls would have been fine. Maybe 60 but 100? That doesn’t even give a pull.

VERY HARD TO GET CHARACTERSPlease read this before spending any money on this game!! This game is very very fun and completely able to do free to play. However things slow down exceptionally after adventurer rank 30. The world, the characters, and everything in it like the quests are all amazing and interactive. However the only thing wrong with this game, is that it’s VERY VERY EXPENSIVE to even do a single summon on a banner!! I am a complete free to play player and because of that, I’m completely incapable of getting any characters that I want. Even people who spend hundreds of dollars can simply get very unlucky and not get anyone either, and it feels like a huge waste of money. It’s very unfortunate that such a good game that I absolutely love makes you spend SOOO much money to get anyone at all. So just be warned before spending money that you likely won’t get anything, the rates are horribly low. For a 5 star, it’s about 0.6% if I recall. The rates NEED to be improved because a f2p player like myself and a large portion of the community can’t get anyone..Dakohta94501Version: 1.3.0
Smooth running+great design overallDefinitely one of the best free roam games around to play for free. Not pay to win either, all the premium currency is available to get by grinding. 10/10 worth the download, but most likely won’t run too well on older phone/ IPad models.Nathan_______Version: 1.0.2
Review from Beta Player+ Great Graphics + Great Combat & Mechanics + Huge Open World
+ Long Full Voice Acted Story & Cutscenes + Game will expanded & updated.
+ Hundreds of hours of exploring. + Can beat the entire game with the free characters. - Gacha Rates are low
- Mihoyo is being pretty stingy with Currency
Overall: The game is pretty F2P Friendly, and I recommend playing through. Unfortunately if your going F2P your probably gonna be limited on characters..DioxetyVersion: 1.0.1

Best game ever!This is actually the first (and probably last) time I write a review and it's because this game is simply outrageous and should downright be made illegal:
How can you make a PC level game be playable on mobile?!
Making this type of good graphics for a phone game is prohibited by every PC gamer community!!!
This only has a 4.5 star rating?! How?!?! This is the best app (not game, APP) I have ever installed. Ever.
WAIT, THERE'S AN ACTUAL STORY TO THIS GAME AND IT'S NOT JUST KILLING MONSTERS?!?!?!?!
WAIT THERE ARE MULTIPLE STORIES IN HERE THAT YOU CAN READ THROUGH THE BOOKS AND READING IS LITERALLY JUST WATCHING A 5K HD VIDEO?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Genshin Impact Negative Reviews
Lack of account securityPlayers have discovered many security flaws in how your account information is handled, such as ways to bypass captcha, reset someone’s password, and expose your phone number and email. Mihoyo quietly patches these without offering any explanation to players. The players have been asking endlessly for a proper 2-factor Authentication system, in order to protect their accounts and information. It’s ridiculous that in this year, a service can be released without even the option for 2FA. That’s a basic security requirement. Mihoyo has failed their players. Additionally, the one time Mihoyo has released a statement about security flaws, they took no responsibility and instead blamed players for “sharing accounts or selling accounts”. Despite all the easily available proof on how to brute force into someone’s account - which Mihoyo was clearly aware of, as they quietly fixed it, but STILL chose to blame players in order to save face. Not acceptable. There is no excuse for not allowing players to protect their accounts, especially when money is involved. DO BETTER..LilbenutVersion: 1.1.1

State of the game and AnniversaryGenshin impact is a game that can be classified as few highs and many lows.
Throughout the first year of the game Genshin has experienced numerous changes, with only two major changes impacting standing out: the adjustments to Electro and Geo resonance and play. These allowed their respective units to function at or almost to he level of their pyro and cryo counterparts (Zhongli excluded). Given this, there are still many problems with the current roster and the damage ceiling of specific units. Specifically electro damage ceiling and lack of damage modifiers for reactions involving anything geo and electro. These are but a few of the issues with the elements themselves and not the units that use them.
The lows, to name a few, are the lack of log in rewards (not tied to a forum site log in), abysmal commission rewards, lack of story in game through the main story, and lack of end game content. As it stands, Genshin is the only gacha game that I have played that requires a log in to a separate platform for log in rewards. The primogems, mora, and adventure exp from commissions are lacking to say the least. Free to players often need to save months in advance in order to guarantee a specific unit, with a lack of a road map this is quite hard to predict what they may want. The mora itself is not enough to level an artifact past level 12, if that. The adventure exp, well, is pitiful beyond AR 50. The lack of story is astounding to say the least, Honkai, another gacha by miHoYo has much more cutscenes and dialogue between characters that fill out the narrative of each section. Genshins main story quest feels too quick and leaves no room for he development of characters, often leaving that to the separate ‘character quests’. More often than not these do no pertain to the current narrative, rather explain who they are and how they act. While not a bad concept, these characters do not act or change with the current narrative, rather it seems once the story introduces a character, your conversation with them during the two-three quests they appear will be all the story they receive. As for end game content, there are two choices: abyss or material farming, which both for a free to play player will only take around an hour respectively (or even less depending on the account).
In summary (and if you skipped to the bottom), the flaws of this game out weigh the benefits. It is a wonderfully crafted world with brilliant gameplay and design, but with a team that lacks devotion to let it shine. I would say for miHoYo to step up their game, but it’s evident over the past year they do not care..RaynaKaeeeeeVersion: 2.1.0
Xenophobic to its CORE.I’m huge fan of genshin, and I’ve been playing since the release. I’ll be talking about the recently shown upcoming sumeru characters as well as a past video you’ve released. I wish to make it known that the poor representation with black and brown characters are very apparent. As well as including stereotypes alongside their character design. If you are going to create regions and characters from different cultures and backgrounds, at least do it correctly. Especially since you did just fine with Chinese and Japanese representation, this shouldn’t be an issue to do. I highly suggest doing more research about the cultures you will be basing it off of- to avoid any future racism and cultural appropriation. Do better. Make sure to have more black and brown representation, and of course do it correctly.
Another problem I wish to bring attention to, is the miss use of indigenous culture. I’ve noticed in one the videos released in the past called “MiHoYo tour 2020 (CN) | now with subtitles”- that at minute 1:31 a designer has been seen creating hilichurl dances/movements with what appears to be a video from a powwow dance in the top corner of their screen. Suggesting they’ve been using it as “inspiration”. I suggest respecting indigenous cultures and NOT using their sacred dances for in game enemies. It is unacceptable and it is extremely disrespectful. So please change that..Gay bird boiVersion: 3.0.0
The storage tho…It literally took so much storage for me too even download the game. Once I finished, it turned out too only be a demo. So I tried too download the full version.

Could be the perfect game but-Unfortunately resin exists and the devs refuse to listen to us when we say resin is obsolete in a game that has no pvp. It accomplishes nothing but discouraging people from playing because every tiny bit of progress is gated behind either resin, time, exp book/mora scarcity or all 3. Timegating is fine but the resin needs to go. Let us grind if we want to.
Also the gacha rates are awful, but since you don't NEED to use the gacha to progress I'll let it slide, I guess. Actually that's a good thing because even if I did pull new characters it would take about a month+ for me to make them usable. (Because of what? Resin.)
Don't waste your time with this game, it really is charming at first but looks can be quite deceiving. It'll start making you feel like you're wasting your time soon enough because of how little progress you can make everytime you log in. Shame..YorkshinVersion: 1.2.0
Security issuesMy account got stolen. I spend a lot of money and time in this game only to get it hacked. There is a security issue in the game that a lot of players are addressing it. Tectone, Mtashed and ZealsAmbition talked about it and it needs to be addressed. Linking your email exposes the user privacy. Linking your phone number is not recommend as well.
A solution is to give the user a two authentification factor so that the account is safe and secure.
I will change my rating once I recover my account. I already email Genshin support staff but the time that it takes to have a response back is unbelievable. Some say for the problem to be solved and to get the account back takes months.
So if you download the game , make sure to secure your account with everything you can link it up to..RnderStarVersion: 1.1.1
The lack of black RecognitionThere’s only 2 black/blasian characters and one hates her skin color and is called scary. (Stereotyping) The new update leaks have no black/blasian characters either. Do better..Shan-N77Version: 2.7.0
Terrible representationThey based a region on the middle east, but all of the characters from within it reek of orientalism. out of a cast of over forty characters, only two (at the time of writing this, during 2.8) have a skin tone other than white. disappointed, but not surprised coming from hoyoverse..AndiLittleVersion: 2.8.0
Stereotypes, lack of diversity, and racismI love the character designs, but there are a few issues I have. There are very few dark skinned characters. The fact that Xinyan, one of the TWO dark skinned characters in genshin is literally a full on stereotype. Loud, scary, etc. And in your other game, honkai impact. There’s a character named Carole, not sure what her last name is. But the way you wrote her personality is absolutely disgusting. She complains about being “too dark” despite being tanned, and her mom is extremely masculine which is also a stereotype of the black community. Plus Carole doesn’t have a dad. You need to stop with the stereotypes and make characters like your light skinned ones that aren’t stereotyped with a regular personality but dark skinned. It’s honestly not that difficult, there are people out there willing to spend their life savings if a dark skinned character is released, so you don’t have to worry about genshin whales who are colourist who’ll refuse to spend a single penny on them. Your soon to be released nation Sumeru is based on the Middle East, by making the characters light skinned you’re basically ignoring the darker skinned middle easterns, and of course they’ll feel left out. Which is disrespectful and non inclusive, you should’ve made at least half of your upcoming sumeru characters dark skinned, or at least tanned. In future updates please try to make non stereotypical dark skinned characters, representation is extremely important. Another racist thing in your game is Eula’s family, she would’ve been 100% better if her family members weren’t slave owners. There are tons of black people in your fandom that are uncomfortable with this and Eula herself, I understand that Eula is against this and her family in general, but it just makes her look like a white saviour. The slavery part of her family is extremely unnecessary and we already know that her clan are bad people. Please avoid any racist parts of history when writing your characters’ backstories, it’s not difficult..Pony20090610 (roblox)Version: 3.0.0
RacismYou put effort into researching cultural foods and dances for sumeru, but the character designs are whiter than mondstadt characters. it’s terrible representation and is not fair, you should not be using other people’s cultures in a game if you aren’t going to do it right. and i just found out that part of the sumeru plot includes segregation??? what is wrong with you, it’s not difficult to be respectful, idgaf about what the chinese fanbase wants, they aren’t the only players in the world. oh, and fire some of your VAs. paimon’s voice actor (among others) is spreading so much false info and stating it as facts, and being immature, which is making your whole staff team seem like even more of a joke than it already is. and so many of the VAs are racist, creepy, and many other things. if you are wondering whether to get this game or not, i love it! i enjoy this game bc it makes me happy with the storyline and characters, but DO NOT spend money on a f2p game that treats minorities like a joke..PIPEY POOOOOVersion: 2.8.0
Lack of Proper RepresentationWith the recent official character design reveals, I have to bring up the lack of tone variation and highly orientalist costumes present in the officially revealed Sumeru designs. Hoyoverse, by making Sumeru, is trying to create a fictionalized version of a very wide area (I believe it may be based on the Achaemenid Empire, which stretched from western India to Egypt at the height of its power). However, the Achaemenid Empire was made up of manu different cultures ans peoples. A way to “represent” these different peoples is by having Sumeru characters with clear variations in their cultural identities — with each one having proper attire and history relating to the cultural aspect they’re meant to represent. However, Hoyoverse has not done that.
The officially released designs of the Sumeru characters lack any skin tone variation, and their clothes seem to be a mix of different cultures within the Achaemenid Empire. They are picking and choosing what they want, instead of creating distinct characters that reflect distinct cultural identities and backgrounds. The character Dori’s clothing is just straight-up Orientalist — picking and choosing stereotypical “Arabian” clothing without actually paying any heed to the cultural clothing they are attempting to represent. This is in contrast to the care paid to differentiating cultural identities and backgrounds within Liyue and Inazuma.
I am very disappointed, and hope that Hoyoverse will take steps to rectify this. Skin tone variation (i.e. having more tanned and darker-skinned characters) and accurate cultural representation (in clothing, names, etc) is key when attempting to depict such a vast and diverse area of the world..AscmisVersion: 2.7.0

LISTEN UP, HOYOVERSEYou need to listen to what your fan base actually wants, which is accurate representation of cultures aside from the China-based region. It is absolutely disheartening to see that you’ll go so far for Liyue but stereotype black POC with your existing black playable characters, AND continue to stereotype with upcoming characters such as Dori with the orientalist ‘Genie’ that comes along with her. The outfit SCREAMS you did not do research into what was appropriate. Start acting like you give a damn and people won’t be so upset with you.
That is what we want. We want varying skin tones, and *actual* variation on *playable* characters. Making black enemies is the exact opposite and you are digging yourself into a deeper hole. I can only imagine how worse it will get further into Sumeru, and Natlan in the future.

Fantastic, but…I love this game. The graphics, the characters, the gameplay everything. But there’s something that’s been on my nerves. There’s this thing where your account “expires” and you have to log back into that account to get it. It’s happened to all three of my accounts. I lost my first ever account, which had Mona, Xiao and Venti, who I worked so hard to get. I was starting to build my team, and boom, just like that, my account was gone. When I tried to change the password for that account, it then mistaken it for another account which I ended up using the same email for without realizing. I almost lost my second account with Qiqi and Mona. And maybe soon even Klee, as well. Thankfully, I managed to get it back. I am just working on my newest account. I don’t know if this account expiring thing is a bug or added intentionally, but it’s really frustrating and just makes me want to delete the game. But I won’t. If this is some kind of bug, please fix it as fast as possible. I am already in misery because of losing my first ever account, and I don’t want to lose neither of the two other accounts I have.

SumeruThis game is too afraid and scared to add dark-skinned/POC characters to the game.
