    The current paragon of role-playing titles and open worlds, The Witcher: Wild Hunt is a game for the ages; a rich and immersive world full of significant decisions and a feeling of intelligent and epic fantasy. Peerless.

    This is the new standard for open world role-playing games. There is no such thing as a perfect game, but The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt come as close to perfect as any RPG to date.

    Probably the best open-world RPG ever made, but it still falls prey to some of the genre's worst traps.

    The Witcher 3 impressed not just with sheer size, but also with its small scale fully enchanting surprises.

    I would gladly hand the game a 100 and call it game of the forever, but slow plot movement, a quest where Geralt walked over an edge to his death, and a variety of other nitpicks and time sinks makes me have to say that this game isn't anywhere to perfect - legendary, in its own right, memorable, but it's not perfect.

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a stupendous achievement for CD Projekt Red. This is a studio rich in love for the RPG genre, and it shows. With each consecutive release, their craft has been finer and finer tuned. If Wild Hunt is any indication, the next game from the Polish band of gamers will be something to behold. Most of you are probably already playing Wild Hunt and loving it. If for some reason you’re on the fence, hop off and go to your favorite gaming retailer now. This is not one you want to miss. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt an absolute classic.

    Given that the game already has too much content in its vanilla release, it's more refinement that I'd like to see now—and to be fair, few developers offer post release support like CD Projekt Red do. In this massive adventure the good largely outweighs the bad, but it's a shame that they're so closely intertwined from start to finish.

The plays so smooth and great it makes me wonder how loading times are minimal but CD project red managed to do it and I commend them. The story... Oh man it is genius and superb. If your a story driven person like I am then you will not be disappointed. Your in a big open beautiful world with a life of it's own and packed with missions and people that need monsters killed. This game is jam packed with content so you'll have plenty to do. Put in over 100 hours just on my first playthrough. I know most people just like to throw out 10 and 0 on scores but this game is one of the rare few games that actually deserves a 10/10. Expand

I'm truly relieved as I feared the PC will run like the potatoes. Discard any concerns you have about graphic downgrade, the game is stunningly beautiful and with a GTX 970 I'm running a solid 60 FPS at 1080p, granted the hairworks hit the frame rates down to 40-50, but it's not really a game changer. The game is well optimized and run great considering how big the world is and the landscape, lightning and faces details are gorgeous. As for the gameplay, it's head and shoulders above Witcher 2, very pleased especially about how smooth the combat is, and the story is so damn immersive that I have to cut this review short and get back to it. So many things to do in a truly grandiose open world grander than anything you've seen before. Expand

    Simplesmente o melhor jogo e melhor rpg de todos os tempos, só corre o risco de perder esse título para Cyberpunk 2077.

    Pre-ordered 5.11.2014 totally worth. I'm not genius at writing so let me tell you this.
    This game has THE best side quests ever, yes, ever. I even lost track which is side quest and which is main campaign, and i love that you can do different main quests before others.

    Love the leveling, exploring is very rewarding, very rich landscapes, just overall the developers hit the sweet spot with this game.

    I had one con with this game which is the soundtrack. It just got repetitive after 30+ hours.

    Btw: warning contains very long dialogues (but you can skip them)

Combat is and has been problem withThe most overrated game in history, it's not bad but nowhere good as filthy casuals make you believe. Combat is and has been problem with previous witcher games, epecially combat animations they're horrible,jump spin attack animation alone is enough to knock one point from this game rating. Even with much better combat and combat animations this game isn't close to 10/10 because of other problem like borign talents and items, finding legendary items is like very underwhelming. Tho main story has quality side quests are overrated, I've heard a lot of about side quests but kinda like in kindoms of amalur it's few big side quests and rest is meh. After 20+ hrs into this game I gave up trying to find out what's so good about this game. Expand
