After only a few hours of gameplay, Cyberpunk 2077 already sent me into a so-called Braindance. In this article, you can read about how that went, what you can do within a braindance, and what I think of it.
The Cyberpunk Braindance
This is the Braindance: The Braindance (abbreviated BD) is one of the main features in Cyberpunk 2077. It’s kind of a program that allows you to revisit or even analyze past sequences. You can choose between editing and playback modes.
The playback mode
This is the playback mode: In the playback mode, scenes can be repe ated from the viewer’s point of view. It is possible to fast-forward as well as rewind. The replay mode in Cyberpunk 2077 Braindance is limited to viewing. Further analysis requires the use of the edit mode.
The edit mode
This is the edit mode: In the edit mode, at least at the beginning of the game, 3 levels are distinguished, which can be examined in more detail. These three levels are:
It seeems to be possible through Cyberware to change or expand the levels that can be analyzed in Braindance. Depending on the sensor, cyberware can capture different data and display them as levels.
This feature also exists: Hacking technology also plays a big role in edit mode. Since it would not be logical retroactively, no quick hacks or attacks can be performed. However, for example, the recording of a surveillance camera can be reviewed at the time of data acquisition.

This is what I think of the Braindance feature in Cyberpunk
This is my impression: I think the Braindance feature fits extremely well into the style of Cyberpunk. The complexity of parameters in cyberware, which was incomprehensible at the beginning, plays out its full strengths in Braindance. Even in simple scenarios, it creates a lot of tension to hook into different systems on all levels or to examine conspicuous objects or data
Thanks to the multi-layered information, the feature doesn’t seem boring at all or like “occupational therapy” to drag out the game. Braindance? Well done, CD Projekt Red!
