    Great expansion, whose central motif is one sophisticated storyline. The only minus is worse a weaker side quest line and absence of references to the original game and its main storyline. [Issue#258]

    Runs the entire gamut of human pathos with extraordinary flair and an impeccable eye for direction and dramatic impact. Hearts of Stone is a stunning journey into the very heart of darkness and beyond. An absolute must play.

    A great expansion that adds to an already excellent game. Good balance between price, quality and content thanks to a great story.

    The best aspect of this DLC is its unique way to wander far from what The Witcher 3 got us used to in terms of narration. If you loved the original game, you shouldn't miss this expansion.

    Lots of content, full of variety and extremely will written. This is a well-done add-on for a low price.

    Hearts of Stone can be considered as a good way to meet Geralt again. This expansion drags us into a captivating story with fascinating characters. Even though its difficulty is far from perfectly set and some additions (runewords particularly) don't feel very useful, it's a pleasure to be able to ride with Geralt to some new locations and accomplish a few more new side quests.

    Perfect in every way. One thing, however, you have to ignore: reviews that bicker over the word "expansion." We have known for severalPerfect in every way. One thing, however, you have to ignore: reviews that bicker over the word "expansion." We have known for several months what this expansion entails and so it makes no sense to criticize it for "oh it doesn't have an extra map and this is more of the same." What does that even mean? Every expansion from every game is more of the same.

    Hearts of Stone has everything you want in any continuation of Geralt's story. It's wonderfully paced and takes you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. Remarkable work CD Projekt.

    Witcher 3 is a fantastic game - in my eyes, the best RPG published until 2015.
    Hearts of Stone is a mildly interesting interactive movie.

    During many of the movie sequences, where you move ten steps to get to the next movie, you cannot even save.
