The player incarns "V" who can be either a man or a woman, depending  what the player chooses. Like in many cyberpunk games, the enhancement of humans via technology is questionned, same for the alteration of the minds and the transfer of the soul to electronic devices, computers and even into other People's body. The game's story is quite good and there are 5 endings. When it comes to the gameplay, the player can reach his objectives by using different means, just like in the Deus Ex serie. Cyberpunk 2077 is also the most beautiful game existing on PC and there aren't any loading screens when the player travels throught the immensely playable zone which is Night City and its surrounding areas. That said, the game isn't exempt of flaws : Amongs other things, the characters' AI is basic and the driving system is barely average. Also, there isn't much to do in Night City outside of the main and side quests. It is one of the best cyberpunk games but it isn't one of the best PC games : It brings nothing new to the table, excepted amazing graphisms.
