The Witcher has always done a great job of making me feel that I’ve outsmarted my foes, but for the first time here, controlling Geralt feels tangibly badass with every successful fight.
When you travel to one of Skellige's islands to find a lost expedition, the island becomes one huge, fascinating forensic crime scene.
When it came to the graphics I was simply blown away. They are smooth and there is some great detail given to make the world around you come alive. One of the highlights from this game would have to be the execution graphics.
The Witcher 3's expanded cast of characters doesn't preclude more screen time for just about everyone, and CD Projekt has done work to make for more interesting, influential women that feel just a bit more fleshed out than they've been previously.
The game world is meticulously consistent, adding authenticity and thus immersion to compliment those pristine visuals.
The game takes protagonist Geralt of Rivia on a quest to track down Ciri, the Child of Prophecy. Ciri will even play a much bigger role later on. In parts of the game you’ll get to control her, a first for the series.
With superb storytelling, challenging combat, exciting choices, and unpredictable consequences, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a must-play RPG
Its huge open landscape throws you into a world of magic and combat, led by strong characters and great acting in cutscenes that will keep you hooked.
There is never a shortage of things to do in the game, despite your skill level. Quests range from helping someone gather herbs to killing large beasts for a town in need so there is a bit of everything for everyone.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt contains one of the largest worlds ever crafted equipped with a day/night cycle and dynamic weather.
It's a sprawling, ambitious, beautiful representation of a dark fantasy world, and games like this don't come along often.
Absorbing story wonderfully balances world politics and personal conflict
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an amazing single-player action-RPG buried in a mediocre open world game. As much as everyone was wowed by the jump to open world with the third Witcher game, I seriously wish they'd stuck to the formula in their previous games. Sometimes bigger really isn't better.
Huge, open and atmospheric world
Overall, the game feels highly polished and after two delays it’s delightful to play a game of this scale and enjoy it so much. The quests offer enough variety and it doesn’t feel like a rinse and repeat job and there’s enough to explore to keep you going for at least 100 hours. The Witcher 3 has to be my Game of the Year this far
I really felt for the characters I met, it was like I really got to know some of them, and even became their friend – it was a liberating feeling – especially when so many games use quests as a way to farm additional XP.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is massive and can easily take upwards of 200 hours to complete, though the main story can be burnt through in about 30 hours.
