Starfield seems like a large game that may overwhelm players, based on Tyler McVicker’s early reviews.
YouTuber Tyler McVicker, who’s gained fame for his entertaining reviews and informative guides about games, has shared his initial thoughts on Starfield. He’s already invested around 15 hours into the game and, surprisingly, hasn’t encountered a single bug so far.
Tyler McVicker’s early impressions on Starfield
Tyler McVicker is known for his engaging content on both YouTube and Twitch, where he delves into a wide range of topics including Valve, Bethesda, CDPR, Rockstar, and even Minecraft.
In his recent review, Tyler McVicker also recognized for his work in Valve News Network, received an early access code for Starfield. It appears he’s not too concerned about the usual embargo protocol, as he’s openly discussing his impressions.
To sum up his review:
- The game starts off slow, aiming not to overwhelm players with complex systems and choices. However, it does tend to get a bit bewildering during the initial hours.
- Once you dive into the main storyline, the experience significantly improves.
- Tyler mentioned, “It’s astonishing how incredible this game looks given that it’s built on the Creation Engine.”
- He expressed his amazement with the game, stating, “Let me tell you, this game is something.”
- Remarkably, he’s invested 15 hours into the game and hasn’t encountered a single bug so far.
Among all his revelations, the most notable one is that he hasn’t encountered any noticeable bugs in the 15 hours he’s played. This implies that the delays the game faced might have worked wonders if we are to believe Tyler’s experience.
It’s important to consider that the game was originally planned for release a year ago, but Bethesda took an extra year to fine-tune the title. This isn’t just about Bethesda needing a true successor to Skyrim and getting things right; it’s also about Xbox requiring a massive hit. Phil Spencer mentioned that he doesn’t believe Starfield alone will revolutionize Xbox, but it needs to make an impact across the board.
It could potentially be Xbox’s next “Halo,” giving players something to eagerly anticipate from Bethesda.
While a classic Bethesda title is likely in the works, critical bugs in the game are something they can’t afford, especially with their first major intellectual property in two decades. However, it’s still unclear whether the version Tyler played was on Xbox or PC.
What is coming with Starfield?
The universe of Starfield is one of Bethesda’s most ambitious projects. Although the studio is renowned for creating vast, open-ended worlds in games like Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, Starfield takes place across the cosmos itself. In-game, ‘The Settled Systems’ extends outward from our Solar System by roughly 50 light years.
During the Microsoft and Bethesda Games Showcase in 2022, the first gameplay trailer for Starfield was revealed. In a comprehensive 15-minute presentation, Todd Howard, the creative director at Bethesda, guided us through fundamental aspects such as combat, exploration, storytelling, character customization, and more. While the gameplay seems to draw inspiration from other popular science fiction games like Elite Dangerous and No Man’s Sky, it remains rooted in the RPG style for which Bethesda is known.
With promises of a thousand planets to explore, an array of intricate gameplay mechanics, and a thoughtfully crafted universe ripe for imaginative roleplaying, Starfield has the potential to become one of the standout titles on both Xbox and Windows PC, provided it lives up to the high expectations set by fans.
