Description

An engrossing, mature, decision-based storyline that tells a non-linear narrative in a completely open world environment for the first time in gaming history. This last part of the adventures of Geralt of Rivia draws on events from the previous titles, but is a separate tale, even more captivating, epic and full of surprises.

This is the last part of the legend of Geralt of Rivia. In the past he has raised and overthrown monarchs, battled legendary monsters and saved the lives of many. Now Geralt embarks on his most personal quest yet, to save his loved ones and protect the world from an ancient threat.

Features:

  • The story is drawn based on player decisions. Each action will have consequences that change the story and the game world. NPCs, communities, monsters and locations all change, based on player choice.
  • The player can resolve quests and main story threads in any order or complete them in a parallel fashion.
  • The Witcher 3 is standalone adventure, easily entered into by new players - the story and game world do not require the player to know the previous games or even the books. Witcher fans will find subtle references to past adventures, but these elements are not necessary to enjoy the game fully.
  • A breathtaking cinematic introduction demonstrating the game background - this lets players immediately know the situation in the war-ravaged Northern Kingdoms and the background story of the main character.
  • Unique atmosphere, memorable characters and gritty dialog - the game world has its own unique feel. It is a classic dark fantasy tale that will appeal to fans of all kinds of fantasy stories.
  • Combat - Unique, intuitive combat system blending a wide range of tactical elements with the most spectacular and dynamic combat sequences ever seen in a role-playing video game. In The Witcher 3 the swordplay gives combat a more realistic feel. The player can feel like a real witcher, the ultimate monster slayer, taking full control of his swords and becoming the most dangerous hunter.
  • Living Open World - The open world environment creates living ecosystems that the player may explore in different ways than in previous Witcher games. Vast vistas teem with life where riding a horse through the dangerous No Man's Land, running in the narrow streets of Novigrad or sailing under a full moon through the Skellige islands are all an adventure in themselves.
  • RPG mechanics - The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt delivers an enhanced and deeper role-playing experience, thanks to advanced gameplay mechanics. The Witcher 3 takes full advantage of a robust RPG system. This will make The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt the crowning achievement of its genre. Stats will have real consequences in gameplay, but will be intuitive for the player to use. No unnecessary scripts or gameplay mechanics will spoil the player's immersion.

Addictive and Constantly Fresh

Reviewed by on

A must have experience for all seasoned and beginner RPG players. CD Projekt Red offers an excellent game for the genre they developed The Witcher 3 for. The Witcher 3 is addictive and is constantly fresh in every play time. The game keeps up with even current RPG games in all fields of judgement, showing how ahead of the competition CD Projekt Red was. Aside competition the game shows how much time and dedication CD Projekt Red put in the development of the final instalment of The Witcher video game series.

Personally I don’t know how many reviews, video reviews and/or RPG comparisons you’ll be looking into but if you’re skeptic and looked into more than 2 then you better believe that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is definitely worth your money.

One of the best RPG's out there

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a massive RPG with countless hours of gameplay that is not only enthralling, but captivating and beautiful. Gerald is a great character to play while Yennefer, Triss and Ciri are characters that show off awesome fantasy world. You will have a really good time with this game. Buy it.

I couldn't put my control down!

I took a week off of work to play this game. One literally becomes emerged into the beautiful world to which is presented. Then while exploring this world, your adventure begins. The story line, the individuals you assist and monsters Geralt kind using his witcher senses, it's just breath taking.

Many quests, adventures, and strange events unfold while riding through the best maps which seem to never end. A true must have and certainly a must play for any RPG fan. It deserves is awards for one of the best games ever made as the relay value is easily justified with different story lines that can be played.

If you done have it, or have never played it, then take a week off work and play it!

Absolutely Brilliant, A must have.

Having played games since having a 286 computer and playing games on floppy disks, i can easily say that this game is one to have/own and play through my 20+ years of gaming. I would indeed give this game a 10/10 and anyone that does not own it yet or is thinking about buying the game, go for it, you will not regret it. Big up to CD Projekt Red for making an awesome amazing game that has pretty much endless hours of enjoyment. Also the brilliant way that they added the DLC's in a weekly fashion with no extra cost as with many other games today. Of course you need to get the expansions as well to even further enjoy and explore and discover the wonderful open world of this great game.

Brilliant

Reviewed by on

A game that will challenge you, draw you in, keep you playing for days and thrill you. The Wild Hunt offers stunning visuals, gameplay and a story you'll never forget based on the novels of Andrzej Sapkowski. I would recommend this for any adult to play with a bit of experience of gaming.

The side quests are amazing. Almost every side quest has a story of its own to grip you. You'll be investigating, making decisions that have profound effects on areas and other characters of the game. Whilst the main narrative progresses slowly, the Witcher 3 offers you a whole world to explore, and perhaps around or close to hundreds of different things to get involved in. You can get drawn into the stories of other characters, going from village to village taking on monster contracts. The game provides a depth to each contract, making each fight you have with a boss significant. The combat system is one of the best I personally have experienced in a game. It takes a while to master but is so rewarding once you get dodging, rolling and attacking at the right moments right. Some of the monsters offer the best intense experiences you can find in a game. There is also the way that the Witcher can become more powerful through the mutagen system which gives you as a player the ability to personalize the way you use him in terms of what attributes you prefer. You also get to play with Ciri time to time which is absolutely amazing (I was amazed at quick-teleporting between enemies and slicing them, felt like some supersaiyan stuff). The ending for me was very memorable and epic. This game requires a lot of your time and patience to learn, especially if, like me, you've never played any of the previous ones. It is definitely a worthy investment in terms of time and money. The DLCs are great too. A game of this scale isn't without its flaws but most of them have been ironed out with the updates, just be aware that the updates are HUGE (over 20gb in total).

Its not for everyone. But if you want to experience an epic challenging adventure that will transport you into a whole other world you could get lost in for hours, with brilliantly created characters, soundtracks, visuals and gameplay, get this. Its game of the year for many for a reason.

If you're looking for something with a brilliant convincing world, believable characters, stunning visuals, fluid combat system, epic quests and a best friend whose a horse, then The Witcher 3 is a must play.

Hours of fun

Reviewed by on

This game is truly brilliant. I`ve played for hours on end and have only been through 70% of it. The side missions are just as intriguing as the main story. The story line is slightly weak, but the graphics, gameplay and dialogue is gripping.

The best game I have played

Reviewed by on

The Witcher 3 is the greatest game I have ever played. If you are someone that rarely plays PC games, and therefore does not have access to Mods, this is the ultimate RPG. The storyline is entertaining, the scenery is breathtaking and the gameplay is exceptionally smooth. This is a must for anyone who loves RPGs.

Fantastic RPG, but is the game too big for it's own good?

Reviewed by on

The Witcher 3 is a fantastic RPG with a rich, deep storyline but it's let down slightly by poor pacing of the storyline.

The relationships between main quests that drive the storyline, and side quests that are sometimes necessary to progress through the storyline and optional at other times, means that the main storyline sometimes feels like it lacks flow.

As the witcher I am desperately seeking someone who is very important to me personally, and also very important to the future of the world...but first I have to go run some errands for an assortment of minor characters.

It sometimes feels like there's just too much work to do to move the story forward and this has the effect of breaking the narrative tension.

Excellent game

One of if not the best game ever made! It's a Must have!

Reviewed by on

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a thoughtful, diverse, and frequently awe-inspiring adventure. Its stories are deep and satisfying, unafraid to touch on themes of personal character, presenting players with choices and consequences that aren’t about turning into a hero or a villain. In the end, it’s quite simply one of the best RPGs ever made.

Excellent RPG

Reviewed by on

If you like decent single player RPG this is really recommended though more for the hardcore RPG fan as it will take a lot of your time. Having only played RPGs on the PC before I was surprised as to how good they could be on a console.

Finished it, pretty difficult though no real replay ability in my opinion. Rather get expansion packs, it is really long and will take a lot of your time. Did have issues with occasional crashing and had to exit the game and start again

The Game of thrones style game that you should own!

Reviewed by on

Awesome graphics + brilliant main character that you play as + excellent voice actors + monsters + monster hunting + gorgeous game world + choices and consequence scenarios + closest game you can play to Game of thrones + great replayability = best game of 2015 (won the 2015 game of the year award winner). Buy it !!!!!

Disgustingly Beautiful

Reviewed by on

With over what seems to be a million Game of The Year awards - The Witcher 3 is definitely not a title to bat.

This was a day one title for me, even though I had not previously played the first two in the series - it didn't hinder my experience as you're quickly caught up to speed and then dropped into the massive, live and bustling universe - free to roam and explore by boot, boat or horseback.

The Witcher 3 does a terrific job and introducing new players to it's core mechanics but also encourages you to go out and dig deeper. From chasing after Ciri in the main story, to getting side tracked on side quests - the world has plenty to offer and you will simply just not want to miss out on anything. I often found myself committing to "just one more monster contract" before finally deciding to go to bed at 3 AM.

The visuals create beautiful, atmospheric terrains to explore. From lighting to weather effects, mysterious swamps to vibrant flower littered fields, everything draws you in, begging you to look at it and admire it's beauty. You and your story altering decisions will always feel part of this world even while walking about town listening to people bicker, picking up new contacts from a farm owner in need, crafting new weapons and attire or simply galloping along the roads to your next destination.

Fast paced action and tender story telling is what this game flourishes on. You'll live through blood splattering fights and enjoy the company of many fine friends and lovers who you get to foster deep relationships with while at the same time make enemies and burn bridges.

The world is your oyster and you are the pearl. If you're looking for action, drama, suspense, romance, humour, frustration, satisfaction all packed into one generous box, filled to brim with extra content such as stickers and the soundtrack to the game, well then look no further. Geralt of Rivia is waiting for you.

An atmospheric world to get lost in.

The Witcher 3 is hands down one of the greatest modern RPGs money can buy.

Long time fans of the previous games (as well as the the books by Andrzej Sapkowski around which the games are based) are in for a treat with the continuation of the story, and the references within. However, new players are gently welcomed into the story, as the major plot-line is as welcome to new players as it is to old.

With stunning visuals and exceedingly well rounded characters, The Witcher 3 is a treat on the eyes and soul alike. Every character is well fleshed out, enemies look interesting and unique, and it's all presented in a very beautiful package.
The game has mystery, adventure, action, romance and even a bit of comedy all at the same time. Every enemy has their own strengths and weaknesses, and strategy must be used effectively to take them down.

A large portion of the side-quests end up pulling you further down the rabbit hole and are in fact so good it becomes hard to distinguish between the main plot and the side plots. That's not to say that there aren't a few fairly boring quests, but for the most part, every single thing you do is an experience in it's own.

If you're a fan of western RPGs, do yourself a favour and get this game. It's a great game to sink many hours into (100+ if you want to explore everything the world has to offer) and is definitely worth every Rand.
