The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt review
Exceptional

Time: 205h
205 hours later, finally beat it! Played through both Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine as well as what had to be every side quest in the base storyline. The main story was great, but I have to agree with what a lot of people thought, which was that the Blood and Wine expansion was just as good if not better than the main story. Toussaint and the many additions (grandmaster armor, mutagens, Corvo Bianco, etc.) all played into a fantastic ending to the Witcher 3. On my playthrough, I think I got the best ending: saving Syanna, killing Dettlaff, and despite Regis being exiled, Geralt and him part amicably which I liked. The ending was a nice cap to the main story. Hearts of Stone was good as well - Ogeird was a character, and Gaunter O’Grimm certainly made things interesting. Enjoyed all the different areas, Skellige and Toussaint being my favorite (except for the fact that so many points of interest in Skellige were in the water and required a boat). There were certainly parts towards the end where I was tired of continuing to play...but I’m glad I finished it. One of the best games I’ve played, and certainly managed to keep my attention for many, many hours.

A game that is flawless in every aspect except the combat, which is merely passable. One of the most beautiful games ever made with each area being a treat to the eyes, whether it's the swamps of Velen, the city of Novigrad, the islands of Skellige or the lush countryside of Toussaint. World building is top notch - I always enjoy reading the bestiary and journal entries of various characters you meet. The characters are all fantastic, Geralt, Ciri, Yennefer, Trish, etc. are instantly likable and interesting, and while Eredin might not be the best villain ever made, it is more than made up for with Gaunter o'Dimm and Detlaff van der Eretain in the two DLCs. The story is gripping from beginning to end and the side quests are equally fantastic as well. Music is also great, especially in the Skellige region. Role play aspect is also done very well, I rarely if ever felt like my dialogue options were meaningless. Gwent is also quite addicting. 

Again, combat could be better and there are quite a lot of bugs but otherwise it's an absolute must-buy and is a game that sets the standards for RPGs everywhere.

One of the best games I’ve ever played the soundtrack the story the world building all amazing 
This is the most perfect game which ı played. 
"Massive in size, and meticulously detailed, The Witcher 3 ends Geralt's story on a high note."

Completed on Jan 13, 2018. This is a near perfect game. CD Projekt Red created amazing open-world which is inviting player to explore it on every step. Great written NPCs are helping you to lost yourself in this world. The soundtrack is unforgettable. With superb storytelling, challenging combat, exciting choices, and unpredictable consequences, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a must-play RPG game.

The Witcher 3 is by far my favorite game I've ever played.  There are no words that accurately describe the feeling this game gives you when you play it for the first time.  The multiple astounding themes this game presents from politics to family, from war to love, and from loyalty to differing beliefs, they all make The Witcher 3 feel grounded in reality while still being a fantasy game.  What makes this game so great is its astounding writing.  Every quest you do, every character you encounter, every monster you fight, feels real in the sense that the characters and stories are never two dimensional.  Every character has a story to tell, and the characters will present you with tough decisions that will make you question your morals.  Another thing that makes this game so exceptional is its characters, specifically the main cast.  Every character in this game is fleshed out with hours of content that make you care about them.  Every character has their own identity and personality that makes for some of the best chemistry between characters a game has ever seen.  From Geralt's charisma to Yennefer's sarcasm from Zoltan's wit to Vezemir's wisdom, all make for a memorable cast that people can invest and sympathize with on a deeper level.  Now it might sound like I am praising this game to no end, but I would like to state that before going into the game, I had a very closed mind.  From what I saw through videos and from what I heard from friends, I thought the game was going to be too hardcore and another generic unrealistic fantasy game with no relatability to the player.  So this game had to fight against an (unfair) negative bias I had and still managed to not only surpass my low expectations but it managed to climb the ranks of my favorite games.  Genuinely, the only thing I didn't like about the game was after I beat all the main content and DLC, I felt a void because the story and characters I got invested in had to come to an end. All in all, I definitely recommend this game to anyone who likes a really good singleplayer story game.

Oh boy oh boy. How long has it been since the Witcher 3 has been released. Trust me when I say this but the Witcher 3 is one of the best games I have ever played in my entire life, and that’s something to say.

Now I’m not gonna talk a lot about the game since it has been released for 5 years already, but all I’m going to say is this game is a must buy!!! With an amazing story, and an enticing and awesome rpg system, you just can’t say no to this game. This game is really amazing, how you can craft potions and at which fight you use them really adds to the experience. Before you go in to a fight, you have to be fully prepared by doing quests and what not, all of them really amazing and with great variety, never boring! Honestly, I think this game is a must have for Gamers, it is probably one of the best games this decade, and really revolutionized RPG games.

One of the best realized fictional settings ever. Absolutely worth the price of admission if you're into worldbuilding at all. Oh, and that's just one aspect of a beautiful, multifaceted game with so many positives it's impossible to list.
