Genshin Impact is an RPG that gives you a chance to explore a spectacular open world that’s constantly growing. Accompanied by several different characters, you’ll take to the skies and make your way through all the cities and villages that make up the continent of Teyvat. Along the way, you’ll unravel the mystery of the Archons, deities that take care of humanity and guard the different elements. Hands down, this is one of the best video games for Android that also allows cross-play with the other platforms it’s available on: Android, iOS, PC and PS4.
The graphics in Genshin Impact are spectacular, which you’ll notice as you explore its huge maps and unravel the mysteries of its main story. You’ll play the 'traveler,' an adventurer who’s able to travel between worlds and that ends up getting trapped in the land of the Archons, supernatural creatures that dominate each of the seven elements of the world: Anemo, Electro, Hydro, Pyro, Cryo, Dendro and Geo. You’ll need to complete missions in order to advance in the story while you perform all kinds of tasks to make your characters and their equipment more powerful. Jean, Amber, Lisa, Kaeya, Barbara, Diluc and many more heroes will join your ranks as you progress through the main, secondary and daily missions.
At the beginning of Genshin Impact, your main character will only be able to control the wind (Anemo) or earth (Geo) element. However, as you improve certain attributes, you’ll be able to unlock other heroes of different elements or even change your main character. Your possibilities of forming a balanced team depends on your ability to combine the attributes that you find. If you do a good job, you’ll be able to sweep through each area of the map, creating synergies in combat based on the physical interaction of the elements.
The controls in Genshin Impact couldn't be more straightforward. All you have to do is touch the directional joystick to move your characters around while you tap on the action buttons to perform attacks, slide faster or collect objects. From the main screen, you can access your inventory to keep track of the objects you’ve found and clues that will make it easier to find new ones. Although all the action takes place in real time, when you access the menus, the action will pause.
Without a doubt, the fact that you can fight together with three other friends in the cooperative dungeons makes the rounds in Genshin Impact much more interesting. It doesn't matter which console or mobile device each player is using. The important thing is to join forces to defeat all the monsters and emerge victorious from each mission that comes your way.
Genshin Impact is one of those high-quality titles that brings together millions of players in this vast open world. Even though you can’t yet visit the seven areas of the map, with the various upcoming updates, you’ll eventually be able to access other areas beyond Moonstadt or Teyvat.
