OXCGN’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Spoiler Free Review

OXCGN:

The Witcher 3 is what I would happily call the near epitome of next gen gaming right now. A gorgeous look, indescribably in-depth storytelling, rigorously challenging combat (Both mentally and physically), minigames that could stand alone and make millions, and way too damn much content to cover in what short time I had with this game. Everything is not just a step, but a giant leap with a vaulting pole above the previous game. Geralt’s hair looks more like hair and less like a crust grey bedsheet, combat flows seamlessly from parry to strike to counter, and every character has a story to tell or be meddled with. To try and cover everything this game plates up in a single review would be a gross injustice.

The story is too old to be commented.

This game has been getting really great reviews, cant wait to play it.

Yeah, just phenomenal reviews. I wish I could play it already. It's in my Steam library, preloaded, and now it's just a matter of waiting for it to unlock.

Finally, a game worth calling 'next gen'.

It's how much the game has improved over the previous games in the series and how alive the gameworld feels that is leading reviewers to make such comments.

Bloodborne was plagued by 40 second load times no matter what and they had to release a patch for that.

Well, Bloodbourne did get phenomenal reviews as well :)

Some kickass games coming out this year.

Bigpappy949d ago

This is a good review. Some of the others try to give too much of the plot and story away.

Well, to be fair, they did say they are going to be doing another review on the storytelling and such things later, but the score is an accurate reflection of the entire game.

I liked what they had to say about the combat in this review, though.

"Model animations are smooth and crisp, alongside the gloriously fluid combat system. Finally, Geralt is swinging around his silver blade like a true student of the Wolf should. Parrying, countering, striking heavy or hard, and casting signs all flow together perfectly.

 Enemies will not wait around for you to hit first, they will come at you hard and fast, they will block, and they will gang up on you in high numbers. Timing Quen signs with parries, finding an opening for a counter and follow up attack, knowing when to roll out and reset with an Axii… I’ve not had so much fun ending countless, incessant bandits every single time."

"Combat is ridiculously fluid and deceptively complex, and Geralt’s progression and enhancements have been drastically improved since their last iterations."

"Combat is incredibly fluid and greatly enjoyable."

As expected. I highly doubt if someone gonna score it average or low 😂. however its matched rival (MGSVPP) is coming soon!!!

DAVIL3949d ago

Disagree me as Much as like . But fact is fact. MgsV:phantom pain will bring Fight to witcher. Snake vs Geralt. However Geralt will surely win ! I know this is my next game that ill spend days in it . First one was skyrim.

Let's just hope you are right about MGSV! Win/win for us all!
