The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Review



It was a long time in the making, and had multiple delays, so is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt as good as we all hoped? For me at least, yes, and it is also one of the easiest recommendations I can give. If you are looking for a fantastic, story-based RPG with a lot to offer, this is what you want. There are only two reasons I can think of for a gamer to not want this game: no machine powerful enough to play it on, and a fear of 100+ hours to play. If you have the power and do not mind playing the same game over the course of weeks or months, depending on how long a play session is for you, then get this! If you want the full Witcher game experience, here are the links to the reviews of the previous games: The Witcher 5-Years Later Review and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings 2-Years Later Review.

The graphics visually are tremendous, and the performance was also very good, considering the Ultra visuals I played with. The story and execution surpasses any other game that comes to mind for me. The gameplay is very strong and solid, although it could use some work on at least the Crafting and Alchemy systems, but then you do not spend a huge amount of time in those menus.

I try to reserve calling a game 'great' to those titles that I feel should set new standards in some way. This game, for my definition, deserves to be called a great game, in addition to any statement I make of its high quality and fun. I want to see graphics of this standard and story of this standard spread to more developers. The gameplay alone is not quite deserving of 'great' to me, but it is of great quality and fun in most ways. In combination with the story, and the depth of impact for choices you make, then 'great' is deserved. (I hope that all makes sense.)


Good. Now that I've written this, I can get back to the game!
