Genshin Impact is an open-world action-adventure game set in a fairly classic fantasy universe, known from a manga under the same title. In terms of gameplay mechanics, the game draws inspiration from the big hit The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, known from Nintendo Switch. MiHoYo (the devs of Honkai Impact 3rd) is responsible for developing and publishing the title.

Plot

Centuries ago, powerful elemental gods gave people the knowledge to create a great civilization. However, the mortals soon strayed from the noble path, and the world began to plunge deeper and deeper into chaos and corruption. The most worthy of them were chosen to guard the rest of humanity together with the gods.

Mechanics

Genshin Impact is an action-adventure game in which we observe the world from third-person perspective. The title offers the possibility to play as several different characters and explore a vast fantasy world, full of magical creatures (e.g. dragons) and treasures. Many different locations await us, among which we will find wild forests, ruins of ancient civilizations, gothic fortresses and even charming corners with blooming cherry trees.

The title offers an advanced model of movement - the characters can climb, swim and even glide. In Genshin Impact we can also find an arcade combat model, in which the speed of our attacks and our position in relation to the opponent are very important. For example, some enemies can hide behind a shield, which we cannot simply break through - it is going to be necessary to show our wits and circle around the rival to flank them. Our heroes can also cast spells and execute spectacular special attacks, often devastating entire groups of enemies.

Game modes

Genshin Impact can be played only solo. The mainstay of the game is an extensive story campaign.

Technical aspects

Genshin Impact features nice three-dimensional visuals. Thanks to cel-shading technique, combined with manga style graphics and expressive colors, the game resembles Japanese animated films. The location and character designs bring to mind associations with the manga original and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
