    The CD Projekt Red surpassed all expectations and they really managed to combine a megalomaniac open world with a strong story. Witcher 3 is a masterpiece, which you will talk to your grandchildren about.

    This is easily one of the best games of 2015, but beyond that it is the best fantasy RPG I have played to date, alongside being the best open-world game since Rockstar’s phenomenal Red Dead Redemption.

    Xbox One owners should have no reason to bemoan the way the game looks: it’s beautiful on all of its platforms.

    Featuring some of the best story telling we have seen so far this year and an unforgettable, dynamic and vast open world, Witcher 3 stands as a must own for not only fans of the franchise but those looking for rich experience they can soak 100+ hours into. Some of the glitches, bugs and other small annoyances hamper the experience but the pros outweigh the cons as the Witcher 3 is a journey worth taking.

    Not quite the technical masterpiece we hoped for, but the mild disappointment soon melts away. The Witcher 3 is a huge, engrossing time-sink of a game that you'll happily spend dozens of hours on. [Issue#125, p.74]

    If you stick with it until the end, you'll be blown away by its engrossing world, riveting characters, and deep combat system. It's a crowning achievement from the developers, and it's a definite contender for game of the year.
  7. 80
    The end result is a terrific role-playing game that any fan of Elder Scrolls: Skyrim will love. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt falls just short of perfection because of those nagging little issues.

Would recommend it to anyone who likes RPGs. I stumbled onto it after watching reviews for AC Origins and have to say that this is better than any AC game by a long way. Combat is a little button mashy but in no way detracts from the excellent story or game play. Expand

I am still starstruck by just how much content CDPR put into not only the main game, but the two extremely large DLC packs. There are way too many positive notes on this game, and the negatives feel like just nit picking a title that I will remember for my whole life. Expand

    SCORE: 99/100

    The hype was worth it, and more. A morally grey world with the best quests ever made in a game. It is officially the best video game I have ever played in my life. It will stick with me forever.

    The best story I've ever seen in a game and it rivals even Lord of the Rings for books and movies. It has amazing graphics, and continues to impress as you crank it to 1600p and ultra everything.

    The most innovative and intriguing thing about the game is that decisions you make matter (without a simple good/evil bar), and often you will not know the extent of your decisions for hours or even tens of hours (none of this "so and so will remember that" from Telltale games and none of the simple and obvious good/bad choices of almost every other game ever.

    It also has fantastic setting and lore, which pays lots of fan service to Witcher 2 fans (like me) but is absolutely accessible to people who never played either other game (like my wife). Finally, it is just plain ridiculously fun and never got old even after 135 hours.

    Yes, it is a bit clunky to control (but only out of combat), the swimming is atrociously bad, the inventory cannot be sorted, and some other minor issues as well. But when you absolutely nail every other part of your game, it just doesn't matter.

    O pior jogo da minha vida. História muito cansativa, demora muito pra coisa andar, você fica andando no mapa fazendo atividade nova. Detestei.
