Rated 10 out of 10 by PSJake456 PERFECT EVEN IF YOU'VE NEVER PLAYED AN RPG
Ok. So first off, I've never played an RPG as you can probably tell from my title. Let me say that this game is BY FAR... just so much better than any other game I have played before. I'm into the occasional shooter (Battlefield) and games like GTA... but this is a nice and refreshing break from all of that stuff. I haven't played the first two Witcher games, nor read the book series. HOWEVER, I feel the game does a good job explaining who the characters are and what not. The only problem I had was trying to figure out who one of the romanceable women were in this game. There are many guides for this game so if you ever get stuck (I know I did) you can just search up how to resolve your issue. I've beaten the game TWICE and I'm on my third playthrough. Witcher 3 does a good job with attaching you to AT LEAST 4 characters. All I can say for this game is that it's a masterpiece, and I'm willing to buy any other games that CDPR puts out because this one was so great.
Rated 10 out of 10 by mike02144 Witcher 3 - A Perfect 10!
I don't give many games a 10 out of 10 rating, but this game deserves to be recognized. The open-world concept, dialogue, and skills/upgrades detail is amazing. The storyline is very solid and intriguing. There are plenty of optional side-missions and "witcher contracts" to keep the player occupied. The player has the choice on how detailed he or she wants to get with creating potions and building specialized armor. If one chooses not to get involved at this level of detail, it does not take away from the game. Personally, I limited my time with potions. There was plenty of other details throughout the game to focus on. The best suggestions I can give for those who haven't played W3 yet....build up your character levels and experience as much as possible, and continue to upgrade weapons and armor. Try this game. It's honestly one of the best I have ever played!
Rated 8 out of 10 by GamerX87 Witcher 3 is overall good
The graphics are great. The world is beautiful & so is the creatures. Gameplay is meh....it's kinda stiff & lacks fluid motions & movements. Guess I'm trying to say it's a bit clunky feeling. The upgrades are cool & very plentiful :) I also like how the game challenges you. It doesn't give you hints or shows you how to take down a monster. You really have to use your brain & figure out weaknesses & learn what powers & potions to use for a specific monster/battle. The story, in my opinion, was very boring & not interesting. Guess speaking with their dialogue is somewhat confusing to understand & just.....blah lol. I enjoy free roaming the open world much, much better. I really like how the company put a "Thank you" card in their case. Made me feel good & like my hard earned money was appreciated, not to mention they are giving everyone 16 DLCS for free....no charge!!! Other companies need to see how to thank & take care of paying customers!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Gamestr67 Well-Crafted Story and Outstanding Gameplay
I'm an avid fan of the RPG. This game is one of the most detailed, well-crafted games I've played in years. The art work is meticulous in detail, the gameplay outstanding and the story is well crafted. It offers a breath of fresh air in the RPG arena.
Rated 10 out of 10 by negimaknight Batman vs Witcher who will get game of the year
Like my title says this is one of 2 games I want to hope its game of the year. I love how big the world map is and how choice effect the story. Also the battle style fells like something else. This is such a Awesome game that I would give it a perfect 10 but there are others that might not like this but i don't agree what people would say bad things about this game now I know why people say good things about this game. Because the game has so much depth in this game I would say to get the strategy book because of 3 reason one the game it has some of the stuff from mass effect and dragon age like making choice and effecting the end game. 2 you can miss stuff very easy if you want the good ending but like I said you can make your choice. 3 the book has so much content like it talk about the card game in this game which it does very talk very much about it in the game. Never the less its a Awesome game and its my RPG of the year so far.
Rated 3 out of 10 by Wickker Nice graphics, bad controls
Graphics are pretty good, however more often than not they wont load in until after the game has paused to render everything.
Seems like every time you sprint it has to force pause your game so it can render which is a pain.
There's a ridiculous amount of bugs and glitches that still haven't been fixed in any of their updates.
The horse riding controls are almost as horrendous as the combat controls. It doesn't let you ride him off small cliffs, it just makes him stop. More often than not the horses stamina bar doesn't even show up when it's supposed to and the horse fear meter barely shows up when it needs to either.
The combat controls are uncomfortable and the animations aren't done correctly so it's pretty much just a guessing game as to when to dodge and try and angle in.
The voice acting is bearable except for Geralt who is just a bore to listen too.
This game feels like it was designed to force you to spend hours traveling or waiting in loading screens.
The story was okay but it wasn't good enough to make up for how much waiting and unnecessary tasks you have to do.
If you're interested in it I would just try and find a play-through online or something. Maybe just read the wikis on it. Not worth paying for unless you can snag it for $20 or less.
Rated 10 out of 10 by RaiderCrusader Spectacular !
This is by far the most realistic fantasy world game that I've laid hands on; filled with memorable characters, well crafted story, great side quests, awesome gameplay. Realism at its finest. And I would honestly say that Dragon Age Inquisition pales in comparison to The Witcher 3. A bit similar to Red Dead Redemption but much better if your into Fantasy games that is. A must buy for anyone who loves video games.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Vdrino One of the best games i've played
Very fun, and addicting! I can keep playing it because there is so much content! I'm a GWENT MASTER!
Rated 10 out of 10 by BigBoyLo Was Worth the Wait
Couldn't wait for it to come out. Memorable RPG's don't come out often. For me I like a gripping story to go along with my search, upgrade, and fight and this one delivers. This RPG is keeping my attention 5 days in and I haven't even scratched the surface. The story and side quest or layered and challenging (I like). To the person who said that it is hard to level up, I say that you have to do the side quests. I was having that same problem before I got the guide. I'm not the kind to use the guide mission for mission because I like to have my own experience. What the guide did was point me in the right direction especially in the beginning. Given that the game is as expansive as it is I'm only having one problem walking through animals and trees, which I think will be rectified in the first couple of patches. Compared to Fallout 3 and Skyrim there are two aspects that I miss 1-customizing my characters look, gender, race and 2-first person viewing but if the energy was used to build the depth of story, game play and visuals it more then makes up for those omissions.
