VGS (102.1 The Edge) has released its official review of The Witcher 3! We look at the story, mechanics and gameplay elements that make it a contender for the best RPG ever.
Enough already it's killing me "where the hell is my postman"
Got text from home saying it arrived, but I am stuck in work for another 6 hours :(
It's here, just gotta take my son to school then I get a nice few hour game time (before I go work myself damn it)
Hope you enjoy the few hours you got!
@Mariusmssj you're suddenly feeling a bit dizzy and need to go home and 'lie down' ;)
@Perjoss how did you know? I don't think I will be able to do much work with all the dizziness.
I really enjoyed what I played, not going work this afternoon, rang my boss earlier with my excuses
This game is really amazing, it met my every expectation, especially the gameplay and combat, I was expecting something good, but not this good, the gameplay really exceeded my expectations.
Wrote it in another thread already: I just started playing and the first 10 minutes are already better than whole other games (not calling names) :)
The combat just feels so responsive, brutal and quite tactical. You can't just mindlessly mash buttons like in some games, you really need to think, react and strategize. So, yeah, combat was definitely one of the things I was most pleasantly surprised about.
Yeah the game is amazing easily one of the best rpgs ever made
Shame it's officially the last in the series but...I cant help but feel they may make another somehow. If anything though, this release should be the injection CDPR need to officially become one of the recognized greats in the PC developer world. Annoyed that they caved to Sony's and MS's demands about the console version - CDPR should have made the PC version then released a console version later - but still. Damn fine work as this game is massive, not "empty" like Red Dead, every quest is unique, there's no "go here and collect 10 feathers" bollocks quests, and the world feels hand-crafted down to every rock.
Does anyone know if patch is part of digi version. Playing it just now, but caught between continuing, or falling back to witcher 2 on 360 for another playthrough first.
Damn it. I should've started playing the Witcher series earlier. I want to play though the first two games first so I probably won't pick that one up for another couple of months. I'm enjoying the Witcher 1 right now but it's kinda sad to know that everyone will be playing The Witcher 3 while I'm not :D
I don't think you'd miss a whole lot by playing them out of sync...
I guess it takes place after The Witcher 1 and 2 right? I'm sure CD Projekt made the game perfectly enjoyable without having played the predecessors, however I'd rather play them in order to get the full story and to understand the characters better. I always do it that way when I can.
Played 6 hours in and so far i love Everything about it. I feel like a witcher police fixing some cases. LOVE IT. Buy it you wont regred it !!!
Was about to be a massive spoddy pedant and correct "RPG game" - which means Role Playing Game Game - but the video title is actually right :)
Play this game on hard, or don't play it at all. Normal mode is just too easy.
I'm not sure I'd say "or don't play at all", but I do agree that playing on "Blood and Broken Bones" (hard) makes the gameplay much more thoughtful. You have to actually make use of your Signs, traps, and bombs. Plus, meditating on hard and above doesn't replenish your health, so scavenging for food is much more imperative.
1hr 1/2 left of work, this day has draaaaaaaaaagged!
Can't wait to play this but I want to finish Bloodborne first which by that point the Witcher will probably be $20. And Mortal Kombat X Ultimate Edition will be $20 too! ;)
I have had the game for a few days now and have to say that this game is certainly a contender for best RPG. Bloodborne is in the mix too along with Skyrim and Fallout 3 in my opinion. One thing is for sure, Bloodborne might haveca scrap on its hands come game of the year, its that good.
