Bethesda Game Studios' new action role-playing game Starfield has picked up a raft of positive reviews, but there has also been some criticism of bugs and of the visual detail in the AAA game's 1,000 explorable planets.

A video went viral on social media after comparing the game against Cyberpunk 2077, suggesting it lacks the detail and realism of CD Projekt Red's 2020 title. However, Cyberpunk 2077 senior quest designer Patrick K Mills says the comparison is unfair and hypocritical (see our roundup of the best Xbox Series X prices if you're looking for a console to play on).
