Should I play Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom Complete Edition in 2024?

The good

Unfortunately, there isn’t much to highlight from the reviews. However, the player managed to get the game to work in some quality setting, although it was not perfect.

The bad

The game had significant issues, including not working at all on the highest quality settings and being stuttery and inconsistent on the lowest quality settings. The player also had trouble with movement, having to push the controller multiple times for smooth movement.

Verdict

It’s a shame, but it seems like Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom Complete Edition is a bit of a mess. With so many reported issues, I would advise against buying this game in 2024. Unless you’re a die-hard fan of the franchise, it’s probably best to steer clear of this one. The technical problems seem to outweigh any potential enjoyment you might get from playing the game. Until the developers iron out the kinks, it’s best to wait for a patch or a sequel.
