There have been only a few games, I have ever encountered, that the first thing I want to do when I get home is boot up my PC to play.
The Witcher 3 is one of those games that I check the news for the latest patches at work and buy the guide books (just to own). I save everything before a cut scene, just so I can watch it over or try a different conversation path to see something different. It's that good.
The game does have some flaws, hence why I didn't give it a perfect 10. The same character skins are used too frequently throughout the game losing your immersion in the game. Controls are somewhat messy (you will get used to them). Inventory (which I know they are patching) is currently a hassle. These issues, as well as glitches that hinder you from completing quests do not detract from the overall joy that is The Witcher.
Having played the two previous installments, and enjoying them both, the Witcher 3; however, is in a class all buy itself.

Unlike the first Portal, however it does not hold your interest as long. I liked Portal 2, but to go as far as scoring this in the 90's, leaves me to believe that most, if not all of these Publishers are looking for Advertising brownie points. The game is not bad, and you will keep testing away as you progress, for the sheer joy of seeing what comes next, but after a few chambers, you start to bore quickly. I miss the old GlaDOS, as she was not over done. In Portal 2, there are times I wish she would stop with the sarcasm and stop acting so human. I do like the new puzzle concepts, but there aren't that many of them and unfortunately the game is much too short. The two play is a nice add-on, but even this doesn't have any replay value. I think I was expecting too much from this game.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.8May 18, 2011This is not GTA - 1940's. You should be made completely aware of this before you decide to buy the game. The game really is pretty basic inThis is not GTA - 1940's. You should be made completely aware of this before you decide to buy the game. The game really is pretty basic in it's game play. The basic game play is as follows:
1) Drive to Point A
2) Search for Clues
3) Interview someone
4) Get graded
5) Drive to Point B if necessary
When you are driving from Point A you are frequently given APB calls where you can intercept crimes. This basically consists of a shootout or chasing down a criminal across streets, up buildings and over fences.
The unfortunate part of all this is that it gets old fast. The story is good and the characters are somewhat interesting, so you keep plugging along, but you get the undying urge to want to drive/run all around the city to start trouble or see what you can get into, but it is not necessary and therefore you feel like this massive city was created for naught.
Although I enjoyed the story, it feels like there is a HUGE piece of the game that was untapped or hidden or just plain forgot about. Although the city is alive and buzzing, you feel unattached to it and its citizens and you are left wondering about all the things that could have been added to the GAME PLAY outside of the story that would have made this a Titan of a game.
The Save system might be my biggest gripe of all. It's autosave and you have no way of saving when you want, no way of reloading and trying a scenario out differently. The frustration in this is that you will sometimes know exactly how a crime went down but you might have picked the wrong question and steered the ending in a direction you did not want.
All in all, I do commend the developers for trying something new, but if this was given another year, and there was focus outside of the story, I couldn't imagine what this could have become.
Some other reviewer mentioned that this is Carmen Sandeigo for adults and I honestly couldn't agree more.… Expand
