Biomutant is ambitious and quite fun at times, but, in most cases, it fails to deliver on its ambitions and ultimately ends up feeling like a muddled mess of plot points, all of which are connected by a fragile thread.
Biomutant picks up years after the fall of humanity, in a time when mutated animals have taken over the lands and now reside in the remains of humanity’s great cities. Players take on the role of a ronin, a lone samurai that calls no tribe or group its own, who has returned to seek revenge on the predator that killed its family.
But, the story doesn’t stop there. There’s also a tribe war you’ll need to navigate and take part in and a threat against the Tree of Life—a massive tree responsible for all life on the planet.
