    The current paragon of role-playing titles and open worlds, The Witcher: Wild Hunt is a game for the ages; a rich and immersive world full of significant decisions and a feeling of intelligent and epic fantasy. Peerless.

    This is the new standard for open world role-playing games. There is no such thing as a perfect game, but The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt come as close to perfect as any RPG to date.

    Probably the best open-world RPG ever made, but it still falls prey to some of the genre's worst traps.

    The Witcher 3 impressed not just with sheer size, but also with its small scale fully enchanting surprises.

    I would gladly hand the game a 100 and call it game of the forever, but slow plot movement, a quest where Geralt walked over an edge to his death, and a variety of other nitpicks and time sinks makes me have to say that this game isn't anywhere to perfect - legendary, in its own right, memorable, but it's not perfect.

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a stupendous achievement for CD Projekt Red. This is a studio rich in love for the RPG genre, and it shows. With each consecutive release, their craft has been finer and finer tuned. If Wild Hunt is any indication, the next game from the Polish band of gamers will be something to behold. Most of you are probably already playing Wild Hunt and loving it. If for some reason you’re on the fence, hop off and go to your favorite gaming retailer now. This is not one you want to miss. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt an absolute classic.

    Given that the game already has too much content in its vanilla release, it's more refinement that I'd like to see now—and to be fair, few developers offer post release support like CD Projekt Red do. In this massive adventure the good largely outweighs the bad, but it's a shame that they're so closely intertwined from start to finish.

I'm truly relieved as I feared the PC will run like the potatoes. Discard any concerns you have about graphic downgrade, the game is stunningly beautiful and with a GTX 970 I'm running a solid 60 FPS at 1080p, granted the hairworks hit the frame rates down to 40-50, but it's not really a game changer. The game is well optimized and run great considering how big the world is and the landscape, lightning and faces details are gorgeous. As for the gameplay, it's head and shoulders above Witcher 2, very pleased especially about how smooth the combat is, and the story is so damn immersive that I have to cut this review short and get back to it. So many things to do in a truly grandiose open world grander than anything you've seen before. Expand

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is in my eyes a near perfect game. If you haven't picked it up yet, I strongly recommend that you do, even if youThe Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is in my eyes a near perfect game. If you haven't picked it up yet, I strongly recommend that you do, even if you haven't played the previous installments in the franchise. (I hadn't played the first two games and I enjoyed it thoroughly) It is rare for a game to deliver so much on every aspect. I am confident that The Witcher 3 will be regarded as one of the best games of the decade and will serve as a hallmark for future games in the genre.

    The Witcher 3 is the ultimate culmination of the fantasy franchise. It is a result of the continued hard work of a small Polish studio that listened to the feedback of the community and aimed only to deliver the product that the fans wanted. With every next game they used the profits from the previous one to bring the franchise to a higher level. This is what The Witcher 3 is: a full-fledged experience resulting from the hard work and clever investment of CD Project Red. This is, without a doubt, the best money proposition of 2015.

    The game contains 150-200 hours of quality gameplay: All characters are interesting and well written, The quests are unique and entertaining; The combat is fluid and at the higher difficulty demands skill and concentration; The graphics are stunning while not too taxing; The music is enchanting and authentic; The voiceo-vers are delivered professionally and cast correctly; There is an incentive for multiple playthroughs as there are many branching quests and a single action may sometimes lead to the death of a main character, there are also a few endings.

    Overall, the game does not lack in any department and will keep both loyal fans and newcomers to the franchise interested in the story and sympathizing with the characters.

Эти 80 + 60 часов игры хоть и были местами скучными, но я уверен на 101% что это не зря потраченное время. Поляки поработали на славу игра очень и очень классная после прохождения сюжетки всей (включая DLC) могу сказать что CD PROJEKT RED не схалтурила на DLC (это вам не EA) и выпустила достойную игру в целом, которая затянет и оставит пустоту после прохождения игры и DLC.
    Покупать ли? Однозначно ДА! Но можно подождать скидок и купить дешевле. Игра стоит своих 1200 рублей.
