ELEMENTAL COMBAT SYSTEM
Harness the seven elements to unleash elemental reactions. Anemo, Electro, Hydro, Pyro, Cryo, Dendro, and Geo interact in all sorts of ways, and Vision wielders have the power to turn this to their advantage.

Feast your eyes on the world around you, with a stunning art style, real-time rendering, and finely tuned character animations delivering you a truly immersive visual experience. Lighting and weather change naturally over time, bringing every detail of Teyvat to life.

Greatest rpg combat game I’ve ever played
The game is AMAZING. The small little details alone, such as the flames in torches and the grass on hills leaves me in utter astonishment. The different types of characters, elements, items, ingredients, artifacts, weapons, etc... just adds so much more to the game that I cant get enough! Everyone taking a star off the rating for “lag” should make sure their phone is up-to-date, has data available and checks their model. The game specifically said it the first iPhone 8 and up, so if you have a 7 or lower that’s because of your phone, not the game. I had a 7 before and it was very laggy, but that was because it wasn’t new enough to handle all of Genshin. I have a 12 mini now and it works just fine, so please don’t take off a star for that little problem of your own. It’s different if your phone fits the model limit, has data and it up-to-date on iOS updates, then that is a game problem. Other than that, it doesn’t deserve a star off. The story itself is absolutely marvelous and keeps me guessing at every new chapter of what will happen, and the co-op mode is so much fun! It pains me to see it’s rating go down for stupid, fixable reasons. Anyways, I HIGHLY recommend this game to anyone who enjoys these types of games, even those who don’t! I’m not a big fan of them, but Genshin it the exception. 10/10 would recommend, especially to anime lovers. Paimon’s japanese voice is just- 🥺🥰.
The most successful open world game
In my many years of trying to find games to play on the phone and ACTUALLY being satisfied and having something to play till 3 am. Genshin Impact has shown me that I waited long enough, the game asked me to write a review but I just couldn’t stop playing at the time. I have a few suggestions but the game doesn’t need major changes the updates are spontaneous but that is to come of a new game so it’s not a complaint, if you’re looking for a game that you can like and that has beautiful graphics along with fighting mechanics then this is your game. With the dungeons and monsters and many different places to visit it’s even fun just running around looking at the world, although one suggestion I have is that instead of just food to heal your party members why not add craftable health potions and such so my character doesn’t feel sick when eating so much 😂. The purity and smooth play of the game is phenomenal though, I’ve already suggested it to a dozen people and I think this game has greater potential, on the other hand I was opening this was a open world multiplayer aswell, but the story says otherwise. If you need to relax and relieve stress this is the game, but if you want to play with friends and find people to meet you better have them added or you’ll be alone like I am! All in all having a better friends system would be awesome but the game itself is phenomenal! Paimon is so Kawaii!!!!!
AAA Title for free
This game is insane. I’ve played now for a total of 42 days, according to HoyoLab. Easily hundreds of hours. I play every day for hours. This is the only game I'm currently investing time in. And let me say it is WORTH your time. A HUGE open world not pay to win and complete flexibility with how you play. I have invested around $20 total over the course of my time and it was for 1 character, Xiao. I didn't get him, however i did end up getting him with a free wish i received, go figure. But this is not like a normal GATCHA game. You get so many characters with the chance at more and more completely for free. You never have to spend money. There is no pay wall and the story lines are fantastic. I literally cant type out enough praise for this game. Its the best game i have played hands down in a very very long time. It does need some more end-game or late-game content, especially because at AR37 the story just stops. DEVS: This game is a huge accomplishment and you should all be proud. Its extremely ambitious, especially if you are planning on including zones that represent every element, however, keep with it. You guys can have THE best game of all time if you listen to your fan base and keep this momentum up! The lantern rite event was absolutely incredible! P.S. try and keep the tower defense mini game in! Its so much fun just to pass time! And it gives us a reason to keep playing after we finish our daily grind!
So. The only problem I have with this game is the overwhelming lag that this game brings to the phone. If you guys could really fix this, I’d be very happy, cause I was Interested to see all of the amazing animations that you guys could bring to such a magnificent game as this one. Plus, it should be brought to my attention that you should get the material for wishes easier. I have been trying my hardest, but I always seem to get nothing, although I just do quests and stuff that don’t have them. (I understand that this is a very early version of the game, and your improving it.) Also, VERY. good job on the character models for this game. Honestly, this is the first ever good RPG game, making the fact that all the others were not very good, since it limits you to a lobby, not experiencing the world, and just fighting. I would also like to add, something That would improve this game a lot is if you guys had different Customizations. Like Clothes, Wing Gliders (there are 3 available so, I guess I have a wrong point there) And much more! It would seem to me so fun if there was a whole variety to this game. Also, Amazing game on the characters. I really like all of them, and I favor this game a lot. As being one of your big fans, please take these ideas into suggestion and improve the game early on! I would love to see this game being one of the most played games in the world ! ! I hope the best of luck to you guys!
The title of this review says it all. Let me start from the day I installed Genshin impact. It took me a long time to create an account, because it kept saying that “the password wasn’t secure”. However, after I got through that part, the exciting stuff began. The storyline was so exciting, and the characters were great. Yes, the gacha is annoying, (you have to grind 90 rolls to get a five star) but it’s still good. A little bit into the game I realized the game kept crashing (if you play on pc or maybe PS4 then you’ll probably have this problem less often, but I’m playing on mobile)it’s very annoying when it crashes of course, but I deal with it. Another thing about this game is that some challenges/quests are kinda hard (ex., you keep getting frozen when trying to defeat enemies), but I just search up guides to figure it out. Also, I heard the spiral abyss is really hard. Plus, to do good damage you need good artifacts, and those artifacts don’t always have good substats. This game is still in progress, so the entire storyline isn’t out yet. The details in this game are stunning, for example you can see the characters breath in cold areas, and the npc’s react when you bump into/ use attacks near them. the characters all have cool idle animations, plus the voice actors are great. The events in Genshin are also extremely fun, too and so far all the updates have been great. Again, the title says it all.
I’m one of those people who Judges a game by its video/screenshots/price/platform rather than description so at first, I personally thought it was some copy or ripoff of another game that costs 60$ more that will be left unnamed, but it’s much different. There are some things I would love changes too like, you don’t start with so much stuff, you can have two to three characters out as an a.i. that you can switch to when you need them for a puzzle or you want to get them out of a predicament instead of having one out at a time and hear characters that may not be there, with that edition you could have a healer and strategize rather than switching to what you need when you need it out of nowhere. Another thing is that the gameplay and story through me off from how original and fun it was for a game I was initially going to play as a time waster. I would quiet enjoy to have more skins for your characters and voiced dialogue/more story into the main character instead of a random flying thing that always seems starved. I love the mystery so if you are into that sort of thing I think that you would like it although even with fast travel, travel is quiet annoying and unfortunately, I have no ideas for that TL/DR: You should play because of story and animations if not because it’s free PS: I played this on PS4 though I tried it on iPhone, and I didn’t like the controls
So at first I was going to play this on PC, yet my computer is pretty slow and this game doesn’t work very well on it, so I usually play in my phone. So far I’m at Adventure Rank 27, and I’ve had almost no problems with the game. The storyline is great and there’s almost always something to do whether it’s the main story, side quests, daily commissions, or just exploring. The one thing that’s bad about this, as I’ve seen mentioned a lot before, is the resin system. The resin is the main part of the game that helps you level faster, but it regenerates at 1 per 8 minutes with a limit of 120. This can lead to a boring hour of just wandering and waiting for the resin to regenerate. Now onto the effect it has on my device. I’ve seen others say that it heats up your device pretty quickly, but I’d say it’s only a tiny bit faster at heating your device up as other games are. Now the devise I use is an IPhone SE that I got in October 2020, so it’s fairly new and had lots of storage when I decided to download. I’m glad I had lots of storage available because this game takes up around 4GB and more of storage on your device. The 4GB was expected thought because of the amazing game graphics and quality of gameplay, which at first glance does not look like it could fit on a mobile device. I’ll continue to play the game and I can’t wait for new updates and more stories!
Gorgeous and fresh
I’m not the type to write a review but there are so many wonderful things about this game that I’m DYING to say. First of all the art is gorgeous and clean, not just the map but the characters too. Secondly is the music. The music was performed by an entire orchestra which really helps set the mood. In a way they’re soundtrack almost rivals some of Nintendo’s tracks. No matter how beautiful the art and soundtrack it needs to have good plot and gameplay to succeed. And I can say that this game does have that. The mechanics aren’t too difficult even on mobile which says a lot. Even though mobile commonly has problems like mistapping and sometimes an annoying movement system they haven’t shown up enough to damper my opinion of it. The characters are all different with unique skills and abilities which is exciting and fun. The plot is immersive and interesting. Also the grinding system of loot and resin gives the player a reason to come back. There are a couple problems of course such as low drop rates for artifacts and characters but that’s how gatcha games are. Also since it’s open world it takes up a LOT of space and memory. Not for older phone users thats for sure. Overall I guess one complaint is that Paimon, the sidekick, can sound kinda annoying but I switched to Japanese VA and I think that helps a lot. Overall 10/10 great work Mihoyo
Worth the hard work!!!
When I first started I had no idea how to play it would be nice if before you played there where instructions but idk if there where I didn’t actually read or remember so if there word my bad!!! But I had no idea how to play so I didn’t like it at first. Eventually I figured it out and went to the statue of the seven the first one they tell us to go too I thought it was pretty interesting since then. After wards I went to mondstant (idk how to spell it sorry) and that’s my favorite part bc I thought I would be alone in the game and that I would have to make camp fires and that but At the end there was a town where u can buy stuff and relax … etc witch is great!!! Therefore came the missions and at first I did all of them and defeat every enemy I saw but when I continued playing I started to avoid the fights because I just wanted to get to the target like if it was a walk in the part but the coding in genshin made it very hard meaning that it was nearly imposible to not be attacked by enemy’s but even so I did avoid the enemy’s . But I came to realize if I fight more enemy’s I get leveled up! So that’s great I avoid but also fight sometimes. Right now currently having a hard time with the mountains it’s pretty hard to stay warm and idk how to pass the mission it’s called “lost in the snow”. - but overall I loved the game it makes me feel all sorts of emotions!!!!
Please fix resin
Hello. I love this game. The community is really wholesome and I was able to make a lot of good freinds online via co op. It’s an amazing experience especially for players who are just starting but as you start getting into higher stages of the game, your chracters become over powered while the mobs get only slightly stronger. There should be a balance between mob level and player level because the game is too easy (AR 55 player here). Resin should also be fixed ASAP because 1 resin every 8 minutes is just not good. 1 resin every 2-4 minutes will make things much better. Also I love the abyss, pleaseeee add more floors and a survival mode. Also add leaderboards if possible but no need for pvp. I love the community but what I love the most about this game is the amount of waifus u can obtain and how aesthetically beautiful each one is. Each chracter (I only play 5* waifus XD) have unique abilities like keqing, Jean and my favorite so far EULA. I absolutely love and adore Eula and hope that more Chracters come out in the future like her because playstile is much much more important to me than numbers. Also having good damage multiplers is also A good bonus however aesthetics and playstile are the nicest thing about this game. Ty devs, first game that I have spent 30 bucks on from my own will and planing to spent a bit more in the future!!!! Also give us inazuma and more waifus ty!
I never usually play these kinds of games. Lately even, I’ve been playing things like Escape from Tarkov and have been fiddling around in Conan Exiles. But this game is insane. Maybe I’m crazy, but at first I thought it would be one of those overcrowded mmo’s with a poorly written story but I have been and stayed intrigued in even side quests! The music is beautiful, the way it was written so well for all the different places and events, I love the effort they put into it. Graphics are pretty good, they’re not intended to be top of the line realistic or anything so for the type of game it is, the graphics are quite beautiful. This is a game where you’re not required to pay to play (of course, it makes things easier), despite it being free. You can actually earn currency and things such as primogems just from quests and exploring, and leveling up becomes really difficult after a while but it’s obviously still possible. The game is all around easy to grasp and the characters are each unique and well made. I’ve been glued to this game for the past few weeks and that’s saying something for myself. I usually like a game for a couple days and throw it away. But this, I haven’t played a game this much since Divinity II and Ark. I really love everything that has been put into this game and can’t wait to see where it goes.
Amazing game ever!! but one problem...
Hello, so um I started playing this game for a week and a half and it’s very impressive to be honest. I love everything about it although there’s not much I can say because this game is already amazing as EVER, the animations of the characters are hella awesome but problem is when it gets to the animation part it lags and slows down the animation and the voices are still going on- and when I log in and start playing for like 5 to 10 Minutes it just restarts and I’m back in my background of my device I have this problem ever since I started Genshin Impact. I’ve played Honkai Impact as well but no problems with it. At the same time I’m also thinking if it’s just that something may be wrong with my device... I put it to 5 stars cause I love this game already even though it lags and crashes down for some reason I KNOW that you guys are improving everything about this game and that’s cool it’s just a bit frustrating because I kept going back and fourth log in and then out, I hope you guys can fix this problem sooner or later?.. but I’ll still keep playing Genshin Impact because I have already sell my soul to it lol ( I’m not good with feedbacks but hope this explains enough of my problem, I’m sure other people are having the same experience as me as well!.. ) and so thank you for reading this.
A few problems
The game is really fun I play it everyday and work hard to try and get new characters but there is one problem, I spend about a month to get 10 wishes and I get really excited and with on the banner for a new character, the problem is, I’d that every time I wish I always get the same characters, yeah it’ll improve my character but the thing is, it only gives me the beginner characters that I don’t use anymore and it makes me really sad because I’m working everyday really hard sometimes all night and it just feels impossible to even get a new character, today I tried to pull for venti but sadly got Noelle. Noelle is an amazing character but I don’t use her anymore and isn’t strong enough for my team, I just wish it was easier to get new characters instead of getting the same ones over and over again, the last time I got a new character was 2 months ago and it’s been a challenge for me to get a new character. Just 1 new character isn’t to much to ask for it really isn’t. It makes me feel like I have the worst luck in the game because of how hard I work just for nothing, I am grateful for what I get but it’s just getting out of hand for me. Please Mihoyo, make it easier for small players to get new characters. I’m still stuck with the beginner characters and I really need new characters. Yes I’m probably overreacting or making a big fuss about it but it’s not funny anymore, wanting just 1 new character isn’t to much to ask for.
Runs pretty good on mobile 💃
I think the game is super fun and in the past few weeks I’ve already gotten to ar 31! I love the characters and story lines, the only complaints I have are about the gacha and the mobile app. The gacha system isn’t too bad compared to other but it definitely isn’t the best. To get a 5 star character you want is extremely hard if you don’t have luck. Having to spend money for more primo gems to get something good is inevitable. Every 90 wishes guarantees you a 5 star but that’s only if you’re wishing on the same banner. And that 5 star isn’t guaranteed to be a character. The free characters you get while playing the game are descent, but the characters obtained from wishes are definitely more desirable. The mobile app is great except occasionally it glitched and kicks me out of the game. The loading screen had been working fine until recently, whenever I try to play I have to wait on the white loading screen for about 2 minutes before actually being able to play. Which isn’t bad but it definitely isn’t practical. The other thing is when one of the story lines includes “animations scenes” or some bigger scenes it always glitches on my iPad. Which is such a bummer because I would love to see the beautiful scenes 🥺. My I pad is fairly new being a gen 7 so I guess there are some glitches to be expected since it’s mobile and not a pc. But overall I love this game to death and the cute characters that come along :))
