    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.

    É um excelente jogo. Toda a relação da Ciri com o Geralt construída apenas com detalhes em diálogos feitos com outros personagens (Triss,É um excelente jogo. Toda a relação da Ciri com o Geralt construída apenas com detalhes em diálogos feitos com outros personagens (Triss, Yennefer, Zoltan...) é magistral, principalmente levando em consideração o fato de que só passamos cerca de 30% do jogo com ela, e quando a encontramos, já estamos completamente simpatizados com ela. Poucos RPGs são tão ricos e bonitos hoje. Expand

    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 haven't played through the entire game yet but I am pretty convinced, that the Witcher 3 will get even better from here. It's beautiful,I haven't played through the entire game yet but I am pretty convinced, that the Witcher 3 will get even better from here. It's beautiful, huge and believable world is truly the star of this game. It just feels right to be there and you get immersed pretty quickly. The reason this game doesn't get a 10 from me is that its combat lacks of refinement compared to my reference Dark Souls/Bloodborne. I appreciate the options it gives you but overall It just doesn't feel that great and I can't imagine that will change. Expand

The main story is great, but what really is magnificent is the side quests! Complicated, interesting, makes you feel like a detective trying to solve a case, and it just doesn't get boring. I also have to mention the music, which is superb and makes the atmosphere even more intense. I highly recommend it to everyone, but for a RPG-lover it's a must-have. Expand

    The Witcher 3:Wild Hunt

    Game-play:The game-play is absolutely fantastic in this game the combat is great sometimes slow sometimes fast and you have to always read your enemies movement to plan your next strike at them with combos that involve swords attacks with magic and potions this game have one of the best fighting systems out there there are also puzzles in the game they are sometimes very easy but still happy they are here.The only thing I could find bad in this game is the horse riding which is really bad but you can easily overlook that.

    Story:The story is one of the best stories I have ever played with a great cast of characters and a very good writing and voice acting .Also the choices you make in the game have impact on the world around you.And I did not find any moment in this story that I was board I always wanted to hear the conversations and learn more about the characters and the world.

    Graphics:The graphics are great and very beautiful but sometimes after loading there is some frame drops for a few seconds.

    Notes:The open-world feels amazing and alive there are a ton of weapons and gear that you can craft or buy.Some bugs and glitches will not ruin your experience believe me .Also the game can be very easy at times so if yo want some challenge put it on the hard mode from the start.I am sure that I forgot some things about this game and that is because it is very big I have spent 192 hours into the game and I still want to play this game is legendary and it is worth the full price.I think everyone that loves games should have it.

    Easily one of the best RPG's I've ever played with hundreds of hours of content and surprisingly an engaging story. The combat and controls isEasily one of the best RPG's I've ever played with hundreds of hours of content and surprisingly an engaging story. The combat and controls is iffy at points, as is the AI (playing on the two harder difficulties helps) but both can be easily forgiven for most of what the game has to offer. Even the in game card game Gwent, which I would never have played if not for the trophies, was great and well balanced. Do yourself a favor and play this game, you will not be disappointment (coming from a non RPG fan). Expand
