The voice acting is wonderfully characterful (with the exception of the deliberately dour old Geralt) and the dialogue pleasingly earthy. The occasionally brilliant Slavic folk-inspired score helps deliver the game’s distinctive tone.
Remarkable, considering the scope of the game. From cluttered city streets to dank caves and wide, flowing fields, the world of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt feels alive and looks utterly beautiful. Packing this much detail into a game so large ain’t easy.
The combat is solid enough, although perhaps a little rough around the edges, but the real joy of The Witcher 3 comes from exploring, hunting and making your mark on the game’s vast and engaging story. What you do and say matters as much as who and what you kill.
The Witcher 3’s world is huge and filled with entertaining activities and side quests, each of which feels vital. Whether you’re following the main story missions, playing cards in the pub, monster hunting, brawling or exploring the game’s numerous other deviations, you’re in for a treat.
This is a good list, rewarding an exploration of all of the game’s activities and encouraging you to come back after the credits have rolled to take on extra challenges and attempt different approaches. It’s a great excuse to continue playing a truly brilliant game. Just don’t expect to get the 1000G in a hurry.
