    The conclusion of Geralt’s game saga couldn’t be better. The large open world, great storytelling and dozens of hours of pure fun – this game is an absolute must for every RPG fan. [Issue#253]

    Its shockingly cohesive world is as beautiful as it is demanding, and it's packed full of mature content that throws you from one emotional response to the next. Its storytelling is superb, its combat is grippingly refined, and its often unforgiving nature only lends itself to a brilliantly rewarding experience.

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a thoughtful, diverse, and frequently awe-inspiring adventure. Its stories are deep and satisfying, unafraid to touch on themes of personal character, presenting players with choices and consequences that aren’t about turning into a hero or a villain. In the end, it’s quite simply one of the best RPGs ever made.

    The amount of content we find in The Witcher 3 is outstanding, as is its quality. It is true that there are some aspects with some room for improvement, but it delivers such a rich and unique universe that you will soon forget about them.

    Gigantic world, intriguing story, enjoyable combat and quest overload... that's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. An action RPG fan's dream come true.

    The Witcher 3 is one of the most hyped games this spring, but it's also one of the best. CD Project Red has managed to build a huge world that is both interesting and entertaining to explore. Add to that a well-crafted combat system and good opportunities to customize your character.

    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.

From visuals and graphics to the pure interest that the story brings you.. you know, games like these only come around once every 5 or 10 years.The emotion and conversations with complex realistic facial features almost make you feel like you're talking to a real person. It actually makes you wonder what the characters are thinking about. The lore is great, you feel like you're in a living breathing world. Games like these rarely exist anymore because just about every game company is just in it for money these days, the creators in this clearly were in it to deliver only the best hand crafted adventures and bonds you create.The slaying of huge wicked monsters and many small quick ones. It will send shivers up your spine, cause it gets creepy, it will make your heart throb for more adrenaline packed action and romantic chivalry. Please get this game cause you're missing out if you don't. Also i highly recommend you get the Dlc's because they are highly worth it and extend the games satisfaction by a crazy amount!! To any game designer looking for a model to game after this is it, the bar has been set high but you can do it. Expand

Levelling up and choosing skills are great, the story is amazing some points had me go with the feels. This game however isn't for everyone. Some people may not enjoy this game.I can clearly understand that but for me, it's been a hell of an experience with almost 100 hours just after finishing the main story. If your into other RPGs like Skyrim or dragon age inquistion, I guarantee you will get something out of this game. Expand

I have been playing for about 30 hours and I am still in the starting areas. I still have a whole area to start. What I love about this game is the side quests, there is literally hundreds and they all matter. They are not place there to am up game time for the developer but actually all have good dialog and are fun to do.

    This is a mix of gta v / skyrim/ bloodborne and even a little of batman arkham series.

    I found I started the game on easy because I constantly died but now I raised the level to the hardest one available and monster as extremely fun to handle, sometimes a fight will take me 20+ min to complete because you actually feel like the real witcher from the books. Constantly changing and messing around with oils, different monsters have different weaknesses.

    There are tons of different potions, and decoctions, bombs and weapons and all make the game so much fun trying to figure out what to use next for your next fight. This is the first time I ever spent $80 on a game (with premium pass) and I actually don't feel ripped off.

    CD Projekt Red will also be releasing 30 hours of dlc story which at first I thought they exaggerated, but after playing the witcher 3 I fully believe that they will deliver.

    Get this game now. My life has been gone since the day this game came out, can't stop playing.

Swords and gear do not really seem to make the difference. Skyrim beats it hands down when it comes to that aspect. Music gets a bit repetitive. Plus despite its size, I have never felt the urge to explore which is quite strange. Having said that, it is still an incredible game. Beautiful visuals, nice combat system and touches the nerve. Certain choices do have an emotional effect on you 9/10 Expand
