    This is as close to an ultimate fantasy open world game as you can get. The characters, main story, side quest and setting are superb. ItThis is as close to an ultimate fantasy open world game as you can get. The characters, main story, side quest and setting are superb. It shows a believable medieval fantasy world with all the dirty stuff other settings wont show you that happened in reality (racism, prostitution, war crimes, religious intolerance etc.). Also the game don’t shy away to give you consequences! You can not save everyone. There will be victims no matter which decision you made and there will be more victims if you don’t pay attention to details in side quest. It should be mentioned that there are nearly no bugs in this game which is praiseworthy in our times (Look at all the bug ridden EA and Bethesda games for comparison especially Fallout 76). The side activities are plentiful and interesting. You can hunt monster via contract, do many side quests for NPCs (which will often lie / trick you), explore the world for treasures (Weapons, armors, free skill points, receipts for alchemy etc), participate in horse races / fist fights or play Gwent. Gwent alone is so good that they made additional games for it (At least 2 up until now). The graphics are beautiful and the music is one of the best in video game history. I want to also mention that the DLC / Expansion are a welcome extension. You get a lot of play time out of it with even more interesting characters, stories and twists. For me this is a timeless classic which deserves all the praise and hundreds of game of the year awards. Expand

    Extremely expanded game in many means.
    Maps are wide and full of content. Number of missions is great.
    World is detailed and quite beautiful.
    Even though I didn't play through everything, yet, I am around 150 hours in the game and quite love it. It is really involving and enjoyable.

    At the beginning I felt like game introduction was slow and painful. Controls seemed not fluent and irritating. However, after hours of gameplay I definitely got used to it and understand how it works.

    Despite that I didn't play or like RPG games, this one becomes my favorite, Even though that amount of resources, materials, weapons, etc. is huge.

    Stories are interesting. Sometimes funny, or even hilarious.

    GUI becomes little irritating in two matters:
    - some places extremely long load times (no, not from Save, but simply opening an inventory)
    - item descriptions are not shown immediately after pointing them. And there are plenty, and some look precisely the same as small icons.

    GWENT is a really great addition to the main game. The better cards I have, the more pleasure is from a game.

    Some fight ending sequences are interesting. Though, become very repetitive after a while, of course.

    Faces. That's something that bothers me a little. There are so many different characters in the game that many get pretty much the same face, and eventually another clothing. Dejavu effect may be little bit irritating at times.
    Children is a slightly different matter. They look like dwarfs. I mean small, adult people instead of having actual features of the child's face.
    I loved pre-recorded scenes from games like The Last of Us or Uncharted. Here everything is generated dynamically with much worse effect, of course. But it may be excused knowing how much content game presents.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Это самая лучшая игра в моей жизни!
    Нечасто можно поиграть в игру, в которой графика, озвучка (особенно русская), СЮЖЕТ (Наконец-то сюжет, который цепляет!!), геймплей и атмосфера! Шедевр!!
    Вы когда-нибудь жили жизнью главного героя? Я - да. Эта игра... этот шедевр заставляет... выбивает из тебя эти чувства, которые были только в старом добром Скайриме. Охх... Помните тот момент, когда Геральт встречает Цири на Острове Туманов? Вот честно скажите! Разве вы не заплакали, когда наш ведьмак увидел свою дочь мёртвой? Я честно плакал! Это невообразимое переживание за персонажей, которых ты знаешь только по рассказам из игры - просто непередаваемо! Это, конечно, одна из множества причин, почему каждый должен в эту игру поиграть.
    Графика. Одним словом, отличная ( особенно в комплекте дополнений Кровь и Вино).
    Я бы хотел более детально поговорить об атмосфере данной игры! Многим уже приелась мистика западных стран( особенно Америки). Так вот. CD Project Red порвала все шаблоны и представления. Да! Они это сделали! Славянская тематика присутствует в этом шедевре. Для меня, человека, чьи корни глубоко сплетены с историей славянских народов, это очень важно. Холопы, леший, домовой, водка и прочие слова - они греют душу. Ты не чувствуешь себя чужим, когда играешь эту игру.
    А диалоги! Благодать! Мне кажется, что в фильмах Тарантино диалоги намного скучнее. И самое главное - цензура не тронула сие игру! А хороший Русский мат всегда изумителен, особенно в этой игре.
    Ахх.. Чувствуете это?) Запах вина и крови... Да, дамы и господа! Это Туссент! Край, где вино и кровь течёт рекою! Я впервые вижу, чтобы DLC стало отдельной отличной игрой! Я очень много игр прошёл и ни в одной! Слышите! Ни в одной я такого не видел. Сколь же сладко ощущение от первых 10 секунд нахождения в Туссенте! Вам сразу предоставляют огромную ЯРКУЮ и невообразимо красивую страну.. И пока вы бьётесь в конвульсиях от этих диалогов и графики, вам сразу же предоставляют сразиться в боссом! Такое сразу же напоминает Dark Souls. Кстати, и по сложности эти игры похожи.
    Подытожим ! Пред предстаёт продукт высочайшего качества без всяких преувеличений, с отличной музыкой и саундтреками, бесподобной графику ( это первая RPG, по-моему мнению, графика является одним из главных плюсов), гейплеем и, конечно же, СЮЖЕТОМ!
    CD Project Red, вы смогли. Дорогие разработчики, вы порвали все шаблоны о жанре RPG в целом. Я надеюсь, что вы всё же не бросите приключения Геральта из Ривии и продолжите серию. Ну очень мы все хотим продолжения!
    Я рекомендую данную игру всем! Абсолютно каждому, ибо в этой игре есть всё, что нужно для счастья. Удачи на Пути!
    P.S. Данный обзор абсолютно субъективен и был записан исключительно на эмоциях, поэтому я не смог выразить даже 40% всех мыслей, которые есть у меня на данный момент об этой игре.

    While the original Witcher 3: Wild Hunt blew my mind when originally released I didn't think it could get any better. Then came 16 FREE DLCsWhile the original Witcher 3: Wild Hunt blew my mind when originally released I didn't think it could get any better. Then came 16 FREE DLCs shortly thereafter, then came the first expansion Hearts of Stone, which is more of a giant side quest to the main story. And finally the massive expansion Blood and Wine which acts as a perfect epilogue to not only to the Witcher 3, but to the video game series and the novels. With the completion of Blood and Wine, it's both rewarding, and feels like a true completion of the story that everything has been working towards. And also, even on release day of the Complete Edition, CD Project Red released a patch that fixes what glitches remained. As a result, the Complete Edition feels as though it's earned it's title as complete. If you're new to the series/game, this is an edition that will feel as money well spent and your curiosity may lead you to play previous installments and read the novels as it did for me, but also is a story that stands on it's own and feels complete.

    If It was not a master piece wouldn't have made such a fuzz around, if u say it's not perfect no game is and no game will be forever, justIf It was not a master piece wouldn't have made such a fuzz around, if u say it's not perfect no game is and no game will be forever, just think about the gaming itself the game can offers you from game play to sound tracks to minor updates to visual updates even more no other game gave all the expansions and DLCs in on CD as this one did and even more over you can play each expansion alone with no need to complete the base one, even more and more there will be more updates for this game after a whole year of releasing it !!! not even any game came near by this one have reached, this game has it's potentials and needs a mood, so get into the mood and fly up high with ur imagination, after all it's a game !! :) Expand

    Is this really game of the year 2015? I bought the complete edition to find out. I've never played a Witcher game before this.

    Good:
    Is this really game of the year 2015? I bought the complete edition to find out. I've never played a Witcher game before this.

    Good:
    -Story is good. Although, it basically amounts to a wild goose chase.
    -Most of the dialogue is good.
    -some dialogue choices actually affect how some missions playout.
    -Good characters.
    -Some great scenes and missions.
    -Fighting is fun. Gameplay is more or less Zelda without a shield.
    -Good graphics. Although sometimes the textures can look like they're from a ps3.

    The game seems really great at first but within a few hours the seams start to tear at the edges --

    Bad:
    -My 3 main gripes are: 1) there aren't enough good puzzles. 2) All mission location are laid out in front of you 3) Most enemies can be defeated with attack & dodge.

    -There were a few missions, like the garden, where you have to get rid of the werewolf. You had to figure out which channel to open in the waterway and then find a key to open a door later on. I wish there was more of that and be more complicated. Most of the puzzles are too easy to solve.
    -Mission objectives are laid out for you on your mini-map. Just follow the yellow dot. How about forcing to user to look for and decipher clues as to certain mission locations. Like a key with a certain symbol. Oh I saw that symbol somewhere else. Maybe the key is for that. You know? Stuff like that.
    -Most enemies and bosses can be beaten with simply standard attack & dodge. I barely had to use the oils or Witcher powers. It would've been much better to force the user to use oils and powers more often. -- All these things should be already planned out in the design stage if you're a good designer who objectively knows what should be done to have a good gameplay experience. Actually this game is YET another example of a game that values cut scenes/writing over gameplay. Look the gameplay is good, but it could've been so much better. It's not amazing. It didn't blow my mind. But gameplay is king. Always has been always will be. Gameplay, gameplay gameplay. 1st always.

    -Bugs, bugs, bugs... A year and a half later and this game still suffers from ridiculous bugs. I.E.: unacceptable scaling bugs. Rats that kill you in 2 seconds. Are you kidding!? You can turn off enemy scaling temporarily but come on, man.
    -Audio normalization or lack thereof. I want to be able to hear the dialogue clearly but I want the sound effects to be lower so that I don't wake the neighbors at night. So I put the effects volume down and turn the volume up on my TV. Still doesn't solve my problem. The volume of character voices outside of one on one conversations is still way higher. Why? And in certain scenes music will be louder than other times. I just want the damn audio normalized. I also encountered a couple of audio bugs where the sound effects stopped playing altogether until I reloaded. This is on 1.31.
    -Lack of map markers. Not all markers for shops, etc, are visible on the world map. At a certain point map markers will stop appearing even for things like blacksmith which you've already visited in certain towns. WTF is that?
    -Broken economic system. It's WAY too easy to become rich in this game. The economics don't seem to have been scaled properly. All they had to do was put like 50%-75% less loot everywhere. If you loot everything you can, after a while you'll be rich.
    -Crafting is not really that necessary. You want to save most of the crafting stuff that doesn't weight anything, but the "other" loot you can pretty much sell all of it and you won't really have any money issues.
    -The animations could be better. The gold standard for animations and lip syncing is L.A. Noire. Unfortunately, it may be a long time before we ever see that kind of quality ever again as that was an expensive process. Nonetheless the bar was set and is yet to be matched let alone surpassed.
    -Motion blur and camera pan judder hurt my eyes. This drives me nuts. it's not as bad as other games but come on man. Seriously. This absolutely MUST be taken care of. And absolutely no chromatic aberration. That is deadly on my eyes.

    The game is actually fun and the story good. Some missions I thought were great in fact. Game of the year? I guess. A sign of the times, though. What incentive is there for Cd Project Red or anyone else to release a more polished game?
