As a landmark title that other games have trouble matching even now, The Witcher 3 flourishes on the Nintendo Switch. With an immense amount of absolutely engaging content, a meaningful narrative, and a meticulously designed world to explore, there’s no doubt about the quality of the game.
The mature content and somber approach of The Witcher III: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition may put off some gamers, but it’s a can’t-miss game for those seeking an RPG with more bite and consequence (not to mention playable characters above the age of 15) than we normally get on Nintendo systems.
It's the full The Witcher 3 experience on Switch. Saber Interactive was forced to cut down plenty of graphics, but the whole experience is smooth and enjoyable. If you've never played The Witcher 3, it's a must.
Great port of a very good game.
Very good side quests, lots of decisions here and there. The only problems are week character progression system and dull battle system. On normal difficulty the whole game is not forcing you out of your comfort zone of quick attack and dodge. So action part of the game became very boring by the end of the story.
I'm not a RPG fan but this game is very intriguing. The story, the characters, the world, the fights, in many ways this game is a masterpiece specially the DLC´s wich in my opinion are better than the base game. From a technical point of view the Switch is obviously not the best platform to play it but i thank CD Projekt for let us Switch users enjoy this game. The portable mode gives the best experience.
I wish I could say it's a good game, but it's not. It's full of things that make you go "why?!?".
Otherwise the biggest problem with the game is the complete lack of originality. It's just the same ol' free roaming game again, but it is behind even such old games as Morrowind. Items aren't really there, characters are not really there, the world is a mirage; largely lifeless, empty shell, filled with animated graphics, is all.
The controls are clunky, the fights are boring, the character development makes near as no difference, need I go on?
Want something interesting that looks better, works better, more alive? Go for Read Dead.
If you don't like the western theme, get an Elder Scrolls game; they walk all over this poor attempt anyday.
It's a shame, because the witcher's world is interesting, the story isn't bad; but I can't bear to wade through all the crap for that.
