The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (PS4)
- R 377
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.
- 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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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!

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.

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.
