May 25, 2015A monumental achievement of staggeringly aching beauty, the Witcher III stands proudly as the greatest video game of all time, regardless of genre. Geralt's final, epic ride, is the high water-mark by which all future games will be judged and found lacking. Indeed, it's only disadvantage is that it completely ruins every other title on the market right now by nailing every single aspect of game design with almost supernatural clarity and perfection. If you play one video game in your life, make sure it's this one.
Jul 5, 2015The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is more than just an incredible game that successfully brings lush visuals, tactical combat and a captivating world untainted with the issues that games of similar nature have when building such huge open spaces. It is also a respectful closure for Geralt, the series and its fans.
May 26, 2015Still, despite some evident flaws, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a game you should be playing. It’s one of the few open-world RPG’s that manages to excel at not only giving you an expansive world to explore, but at also giving you plenty to do within that world.
Jul 30, 2015Given that the game already has too much content in its vanilla release, it's more refinement that I'd like to see now—and to be fair, few developers offer post release support like CD Projekt Red do. In this massive adventure the good largely outweighs the bad, but it's a shame that they're so closely intertwined from start to finish.

Gameplay is much better than dragon age inquisition by far. Combat is less clunkier than dragon age but not as good as Bloodborne, still a very good game, considering the hours of gameplay and how good the side quests is.… Expand

I'm truly relieved as I feared the PC will run like the potatoes. Discard any concerns you have about graphic downgrade, the game is stunningly beautiful and with a GTX 970 I'm running a solid 60 FPS at 1080p, granted the hairworks hit the frame rates down to 40-50, but it's not really a game changer. The game is well optimized and run great considering how big the world is and the landscape, lightning and faces details are gorgeous. As for the gameplay, it's head and shoulders above Witcher 2, very pleased especially about how smooth the combat is, and the story is so damn immersive that I have to cut this review short and get back to it. So many things to do in a truly grandiose open world grander than anything you've seen before.… Expand

The 3rd Witcher game does so much fantastic, so much right that the minor annoyances really don't detract from the game whatsoever. I find it ironic that I'm playing on an all AMD system and I've not experienced but 1 crash. Running everything on Ultra except AA and blur off and even maxxed at 5760x1080 the game plays fantastic. Running:
Dual Sapphire Tri-X R9 290Xs in Eyefinity
Asus Sabertooth 990fx Gen 3
8GB Gskill Ripjaw
1TB WD Velociraptor
All pumping out on an old Logitech 5500 5.1 THX system.
About 20 hours in and only 1 crash. None of this stuttering Nvidia folks seem to be complaining a lot about. No hard crashes. No jerky camera movement. Swordplay is fluid and dynamic. Entire world is breathing with things to see and do and conquer.
By far the best open world RPG ever created. Hands down. I've been gaming for 40 years and I've yet experienced such a cinematic, fluid and creative rpg. If Cyberpunk (CDPR's next game) is as amazing as the 3rd Witcher we are in for a serious treat. Kudos. Bravo!… Expand
Jul 9, 2015(Review as of patch 1.06.)
The Witcher 3 is one of the few RPGs that delivers on both quantity and quality. The open world that CDPR have(Review as of patch 1.06.)
The Witcher 3 is one of the few RPGs that delivers on both quantity and quality. The open world that CDPR have created is vast and detailed, gorgeous to look at, and full of genuine characters with varying and meaningful motivations, desires and hidden agendas.
As many have pointed out, one of the strongest aspects of the Witcher 3 is the depth behind the main/side quests and the characters involved in them. Because of this, my incentive to complete the game comes not only from the prospect of gold, but from me being personally invested in the characters and wanting to see the consequences of my own choices and how they affect story outcomes. I also have to mention how fitting and entrancing the soundtrack is for this game. The combat themes, the ambient tracks while exploring Skellige or Oxenfurt or Novigrad, they all contribute to the masterfully crafted atmosphere.
It's not a perfect game though. Below are some of the criticisms/areas of improvement I came up with. Some are more subjective and nitpicky than others.
- Sluggish movement and controls.
- XP distribution and leveling requires some tweaking/balancing.
- Not enough quickslots for potions/bombs.
- Inventory interface could be better organised.
- Witcher contracts and treasure hunts could be more varied.
- Game is too easy upon reaching level 15+
- King of the Wild Hunt is an underwhelming main antagonist when compared to something like the Crones (similar to how in Far Cry 3, Vaas is a more interesting villain despite Hoyt being the main antagonist).
- As is generally the case with open-world games, the main story doesn't quite have the same sense of urgency as in Witcher 1 or 2.
- Some gameplay concepts aren't explained well in the tutorial (refilling potions/bombs, purpose of strong attacks etc.).
- Enemy AI in combat is often less than stellar.
Overall rating: 8.7/10… Expand
Sep 10, 2015let me start telling you this, I bought the GOG version and I have been playing this game ever since it's released, currently I have itslet me start telling you this, I bought the GOG version and I have been playing this game ever since it's released, currently I have its 1.08.4 patch which is considered as the latest . I admit I have a bit old PC but I can play GTA V with high settings fine, I can play Dragon age inquisition with high settings fine but not this game? why? some says this game is so demanding but to be honest, when a game is so demanding it means either the game is graphically awesome or badly optimized but we everyone know Witcher 3 downgraded its graphic quality just before it's released and it doesn't have a realistic look so why it's so demanding? because it's unoptimized , the game is a console port and badly optimized, and there is poorly coded Maxwell favour Gamework on top of it.
there are a lot of bugs in the game, character movement isn't that fluid like in GTA ,you feel like it's a bit robotic when moving, the same feeling has when fighting and riding a horse. water quality, terriann quality isn't that good either ,it looks like a bit cartoonish, the only pro side of this game is having good looking characters and weapons.
animations are quite bad, character movement, tree shaking when it's windy are absolutely horrific. the trees shake like thick papers when it's windy, there is no realism at all in it. the water quality is quite bad, it doesn't even look like water, but some heavy fluid. combat is repetitive and boring and dull, horse riding doesn't feel like fluid, it's same as the character movement, so robotic, if you want the best character movement then go to GTA. the story is fine, level design is fine, the world is huge and wonderful ,there are a lot of places to explore , but the game performance discourages me from playing, who wants to play a game with 30fps and low?
in towns it goes even low like 23fps, I reduced all settings lowest as possible but the situation is still same, I have seen that a lot of people defend this game, I dunno why, you need a gtx 980 to play this game with Ultra quality at 1080p@60fps but that card is so expensive, it just suggests gtx 770 as recommended means u should be able to play the game with max settings with 1080p@60fps with gtx 770 but it's quite impossible.
when you set all settings to Ultra on gtx 770 ,the fps goes to 30fsp.so basically on a recommended system you can't achieve 60fps at 1080p on Ultra mode. then why it's even recommended?
only SLI high end cards can pass the 60fps and single gtx 980 card can achieve 60fps in towns.
this game purposely reduced the performance of AMD cards recently though it's fixed I am pretty sure still it favours Nvidia Maxwell users over other users. I feel like this game is developed to push people to buy Maxwell cards so it's more like a Nvidia marketing plan. Physx can't even be turned off.
I suggest that wait for like 2-3 years until more powerful hardware shows up and bugs in this game are fixed, then go ahead and buy because this game is worth, I heard that DirectX12 patch might come so soon which means there will be a tremendous performance boost since gtx 400 cards. don't buy now and wait, so you can have the game at cheap price too.… Expand
