    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.

The game, which sets new standards in the genre of role-playing game development to which everyone will be the next few years.

In the meantime, do not pass by such games as "The Wild Hunt" appear every few years. Therefore, they simply worthy of all praise, respect and, of course, your most careful attention. Expand

Never in my life have a played an RPG that gives you such anPlain and simple this game is stunning, there is just no other way to put it. Never in my life have a played an RPG that gives you such an alive and immersive feeling as Wild Hunt gives you. From the main story quests, secondary quests, contracts and treasure hunt, the developers have crafted each quest to make you care, to make you eagerly complete the quest to see the exciting outcome. From hunting down monsters across the vast open world, to simply helping an old lady get her frying pan pack, you care. That for me is what makes this game a 10. The lore is so fascinating, the combat is exhilarating, leveling crafting and alchemy have so much depth, and I can't even begin to tell you how much time I have put into the (mini)game gwent; all of what I listed adds to experience, but again it is how the game makes you care and in turn makes you cautious with your decision making. Every choice has a consequence and a lot of choices come down to choosing the lesser of two evils, however it is this choice that makes the game feel so grounded in reality. Your actions have consequences, Every time you have a choice (at least for myself) you take time to consider what is the best options for Geralt and for the world he lives in. In conclusion, the game is just so good, and if any developer has ever earned your $60 dollars it's without a doubt CDPR.

    ps, sorry for any grammar or spelling mistakes, or if things are worried funny. I quickly wrote this in 5 mins and didn't take any time to revise mistakes.

Plenty of side-quests and odd characters to meet that will net you hours of game-play, in fact, that amount of things to do in the game may bog you down and keep you sidetracked from finishing the main story. The only thing this game falls short of is its combat mechanics, albeit not terrible, but not as refined as other action combat titles. If you can get past the clunky controls, then overall this is an amazing open world fantasy game to experience. Expand

This game is just about sex and violence, no deep story and full with bugs. No worth the 60€ I spend for this game back in the days. Expand
