    It’s by no means a flawless victory, but The Witcher 3 is a remarkable, if uneven, adventure that we’ll be dipping into for months to come.

    A truly great game that rises its head above its own hot water to proudly present a prosperous experience that only the most deliriously expectant could feel shortchanged by.

    The end result is a terrific role-playing game that any fan of Elder Scrolls: Skyrim will love. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt falls just short of perfection because of those nagging little issues.

    Open world RPG doesn't has never been better than this game. The game is full of lore and it feels like a living world, where life goes onOpen world RPG doesn't has never been better than this game. The game is full of lore and it feels like a living world, where life goes on even without the witcher. But the fun is getting involved, and there is plenty to get involved in. Lots of quests, treasure hunts and bounties that all are interesting. Even the typical go-fetch or go-kill quests are transformed into something interesting due to the people involved and excellent writing/dialogue.

    No doubt this is the king of RPG's, and the competitors will really need to step of to take over the throne!

    Honestly cannot see why players are complaining about this game, it's epic, it is truly the definition of EPIC, and it takes time to get intoHonestly cannot see why players are complaining about this game, it's epic, it is truly the definition of EPIC, and it takes time to get into and become the player you enjoy to be. but that's great to me as this game won't get old fast, everything is captivating, learning the differences in monsters and general horrors of the huge open world. knowing what to take into each fight or developing your skills to enjoy your style of gameplay, mine is swords swords swords, and learning the techniques to enjoy being a swordsman is fun. the graphics are brilliant (seems to not lag like the PS4 version) the camera can be annoying but not as bad as ACU. the story is great the side quests suck you in, and you want to stay in small villages just to help the communities. you can be a nasty guy or a nice guy or a little bit of both, every decision effects the world, this game to me is a cross between skyrim and red dead redemption. brilliant game so far.

    The diversity of the ecosystem, the trees, the monsters, the combat that is fluid like dancing.

    The quests, graphics, I can't even list why this game is by far my best experience with Xbox One.

    It's awesome.

    Seriously? THIS is the game they delayed to get it right?

    Seriously? THIS is the game they delayed to get it right?
    Nausea-inducing camera, which only gets worse when using the Witcher focus skill, which doesn't tell you much anyway.
    Clunky buttton-mashing combat and animations that look seriously last gen.
    The inventory system text is so small it's barely legible on a 50" TV, and seems to have been designed for PC players with no consideration for console gaming.
    Add to this a story that is drab and uninteresting from the outset, especially when compared to Witcher 2, which was great right off the bat.
    This is NOT a massive open world game, either. It's a great big map where you go from point A to point B to point X and the challenge seems to be mastering your boredom.
    I was really looking forward to this game and to say that I'm gutted is an understatement.
