Initially, I wasn’t so sure. The mechanics of the combat system felt clunky and the extensive menus were overwhelming. However, it doesn’t take long for it all to make sense. It soon becomes apparent that there is far more to the combat than simply rolling towards the opponent, striking and rolling away again. Oils, potions and ‘signs’ all play their part, helping to lend an advantage in a fight, but it doesn’t take too long for the rolling, striking, dodging and counter-attacking to become intuitive and the whole process begins to feel like fun.
The learning curve is fairly kind to begin with, easing the player into everything, and the multiple menus for levelling up, enhancing weapons and armour, crafting potions, oils and bombs, etc., start to feel relevant and user-friendly. Furthermore, all of the tutorials can be revisited, although I have never felt the need to go back to them.
I hadn’t played either of the prequel games or read any of the books prior to starting The Witcher 3 and I have to admit that whilst the game is perfectly playable without having done so, the experience would have been enriched with more background knowledge. There are some references to situations and characters that are clearly based on prior events and I found myself having to guess at dialogue choices a couple of times. The on-screen characters evidently knew what was being spoken about, but I had no clue at all. I must emphasise that this is really a minor point, although I felt it worth mentioning.
Another slight irritation is the occasional bug. There was nothing ‘game-breaking’, although I have noticed that the failure to complete one quest in good time (before another certain quest began) meant that I had failed the quest in question. Other glitches are mostly to do with graphics, but they are few and far between and I would be surprised if they didn’t exist at all, given the colossal scale of the game.
The Witcher 3 is a very grown-up game. Expect violence, of course, as well as some horror, but also expect sex, nudity and copious amounts of bad language. Whilst I can understand that some people would find these elements to be off-putting or inappropriate, I feel that – overall – they are in-keeping with the world and the narrative of the game, greatly enhancing the whole experience. It feels like a mature, grown-up game for adults and I love it all the more for that. It doesn’t patronise and it doesn’t pull its punches. Instead, it takes the player on an incredible journey that is full of both light and dark moments, not to mention moral and personal choices that can at times be truly difficult and challenging.
The vast and intricately detailed world is made all the more believable thanks to the luscious graphics (I’m playing the game on an Xbox One X via a 4k TV) and the characters that are encountered are made more believable, increasing the player’s sense of empathy with them, due to the clever use of dialog and mostly excellent voice-acting.
I’ve been playing The Witcher 3: The wild Hunt for what feels like ages now and I am only approaching about two-thirds of the way through. Throughout my considerable years of gaming, few titles have gripped me this strongly for this long and there are still the Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine expansion packs to play through!
I have truly grown to love it. Its flaws are miniscule in the scheme of things, dwarfed by the grand scale of everything else and it is absolutely one of my favourite games of all time.
There is so many hours of enjoyment in this game I played it flat out for weeks and even when i went away for a week on a trip I was still thinking about playing it. The music is great some times i even listen to the soundtrack of it on youtube its that good.
You really end up caring about what happens the characters and world you inhabit while playing and the combat system is pretty solid and fun.
The only thing I didn't really like was the Lvling system a lot of the time it felt like you have to sacrifice using cool abilities to go for stuff that is effective so feels like you are missing a lot of the game especially on new game + so you are pressured into playing certain builds that arent really your style alot of the time so I feel it only really takes away from the game.
Id say if they would have fleshed out the rpg elements to the game and gave it more depth this game would be the best game of all time at least for me haha the amount of value you get from this game is amazing in this day in age so if you are on the fence about buying this game try it out you wont regret it.
- Looks good still (in 2020).
- Large open world.
- Comes with all DLC.
- Poor combat (boring and repetitive).
- Enemies are either really weak or overpowered, however there seems to be no gradual build up. You’ll either win easily or be killed instantly.
- Dialogue is cringeworthy.
- Tasks / Quests get very tedious after a while.
- Menus are confusing and overly cluttered.
- Despite the open world, there’s a lack of anything really interesting in it.
Overall I have no desire to keep playing through the repetition. It feels like a chore to pick up the game.
I've been gaming since the late 80s and I can say this is my favourite game of all time (Unless they CD Project Red decide to make another Witcher game). I can't see how any game can top this, the world, the characters, the story, the gameplay, the combat, the sense of humour, it was a pleasure to play and still is!
Can't recommend it enough, and if you enjoy it you're probably going to end up purchasing the books ... the start of an obsession!
Third person game, with no first person option. Your character doesn't always go where you direct him to during combat. When you want to skip cut scenes, you have to press the X button for every line the characters speak. Casts (spells) are ineffective. Weapons aren't up to much.
Your character is completely unrelatable. Any allies you fight along side cause no damage to your enemies.
A really poor game.
