The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt review
Exceptional
by ben_auchana

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.

Masterpiece.
Yes it's still a tiny bit jank and combat is overly simple, even with the multitude of options you're given. But that's all the bad here. The world is beautiful and a joy to explore, quests are amazingly designed and the soundtrack is phenomenal.

An interesting plot, especially in the DLC Blood and Wine, well-written characters, graphics at an excellent level, the combat system is shit, but this does not spoil the overall impression. In terms of plot and depth of characters, the game is a million times better than the entire series of books, in general, a huge respect for the authors. Russian voice acting and Geralt's charisma are half of the game's success in Russia.

Интересный сюжет, особенно в DLC Blood and Wine, отлично прописанные персонажи, графика на отличном уровне, боевая система говно, но это не портит общего впечатления. По сюжету и глубине персонажей игра в миллион раз лучше всей серии книг, в общем огромный респект авторам. Русская озвучка и харизма Геральта — половина успеха игры в России.
There's not even a need to talk about it... If it's not the best, it's certainly one of the best RPGs I've ever played. You can buy it without fear!
