    Which is by itself a very cyberpunk idea. :)

    I think part of the issue is that it also incorporates elements without thinking them through. For example, the vast majority of busy work you do in the game is killing criminals for the police. Which is a bit of a narrative burp because the police are scum in cyberpunk games unless they're Robocop and you are a criminal yourself.

    You can use a Pax mod to NOT kill everyone you meet but that doesn't effect anything.

    This is a rare game where a honor system might have helped make it feel like you were doing something useful.

    The game has a disgusting and uninteresting storyline, which is also very poorly presented. From the very beginning you are bombarded with a huge amount of information. At first you can't even understand who all these people are and why there are so many characters. But once you get through the prologue, you realize that it was still okay.
