    It is a shining example of what RPGs should be: an experience that makes you believe that you’re truly part of a game’s world and that you have a very real stake in it. That’s exactly what Wild Hunt has achieved here.

    There is no saving the world, here, no great evil force pervading the landscape, or a doomsday clock ticking down to inevitable destruction, with only you to stand in its way. The story of Wild Hunt is a personal one, set in a huge and unrelentingly beautiful world.

    It stands out for its wonderful writing, variety of quests and things to do in the world, and how your choices have impact in interesting ways.

    Even if the plot isn’t terribly interesting, the many characters who play a part in it are, and along with the excellent combat and RPG gameplay, they elevate The Witcher 3 to a plane few other RPGs inhabit.

    The Witcher III: Wild Hunt is probably one of the most well-crafted RPG worlds yet...Is it perfect? No, the combat is rote at times and the inventory and crafting needs work, but in the end, The Witcher III is a top-notch RPG experience.

    This role-playing marvel creates an impressive atmosphere in an open world, focusing on the silent moments and the exploration as much as on spectacular fighting. The quest quality is high throughout and the storytelling is out of this world – not only for ten or dozens but for a hundred hours.

    It spends a great deal of its energy trying to impress the audience with unparalleled scope. The result is an experience that succeeds in its mission of being a grand experience, but commonly missteps when it comes to fundamentals such as combat, leveling systems, and user interface design.

    Very awesome game, reminds me of Red Dead Redemption, Skyrim, and Dragon Age. Bringing the best of those together in a world bigger than GTA VVery awesome game, reminds me of Red Dead Redemption, Skyrim, and Dragon Age. Bringing the best of those together in a world bigger than GTA V is truly something magnificent. While also telling a very good and mature story in a beautiful setting. Ladies and Gentlemen... Let me present The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Say goodbye to life for a while! 10/10 Expand

I played the game for about 10 hours, the graphic, details are Eye-catching and amazing, if I want to be honest I didn't see such pure and beautiful details in open world games until now, Rains, glow of sun, the light of the moon, the wind between trees, all things are perfectly awesome.
    I found story telling in this game fabulous, the game play is good but you have to spend times to get use to it.
    All in all The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is really great, thank you CD PROJEKT RED.

If the control sensitivity was better I'd give it a 10. It doesn't ruin the game for me as it does for the negative critics on here, but it takes some getting used to. Every other aspect of the game deserves a 10 in my book! Expand

The world is the same as in any western RPG, and the gameplay is the embodiment of averageness. Most players will be amazed by its graphics and the fact that the world is huge, but that doesn't change the fact it consists of unimaginative forests, mountains and swamps. The enemy designs are equally unimaginative, and the combat system you fight them with is dodge and hit with no strategy involved. Expand
