The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a crowning achievement for CD Projekt RED, and Giuseppe Nelva from DualShockers posts his verdict on one of the most anticipated games of 2015.
Nice review. Not many reviewers I bother reading of as nowadays they tend to be passionate about making big deals out of minor flaws and forget the humility of enjoying a game for what it is while they focus on sharing a 'strong opinion' on how they think a game should have been. Feeling happy and privileged to be a gamer too.
A minor flaw to you may be a major flaw to them. If you don't agree with a reviewers opinion that's fine, it doesn't mean they're being stupid or clickbaiting or trying to have a different opinion for the sake of it, or being too proud or something. The whole calling out reviewers thing was getting annoying as of late, mainly because of how hypocritical people were with it. It became a method of defending a fanbase and pushing away criticism especially when it comes to the whole exclusive console war thing. Reviews are opinions. People should just stop making assumptions about the intentions behind the review and all that. It's really stupid. Every time I see a review that scores a popular game lower, the comments are always "just trying to clickbait" or "trying so hard to be different" or some insult. Going back to the whole hypocrisy thing - ofcourse,even if a game is NOT popular with the majority of reviewers , the fanbase will still call out all those reviews for clickbaiting, fanboyism, bashing for no reason etc etc. TW3 looks amazing to me - I literally almost jumped for joy when the first review (Gamespot) gave it a 10/10. Doesn't mean a 6/10 review is anything other than a legit opinion on the game.
'gave it a 10/10. Doesn't mean a 6/10 review is anything other than ' that kinda sums up what I think is wrong with review 'scores' that dont give any proper information about a game but it seems on the internet all is about 'scores' I think reviews are becoming less and less relevant and I personally like reading a well written review about a game Im interested in but not because it has an appealing or 'intriguing' score.
Good review. Your points about the weapon degradation are spot on. I made sure to pick up as many weapon repair kits as I could afford. It's bothering to have to worry about fast traveling to a blacksmith after a few waves of enemies. I'm playing on Blood and Broken Bones, I just wonder if lower difficulties tone down the degradation. If that's the case, I completely understand why it's harsh. Overall, the good things about the game far outweigh the cons. It's near perfection, but with a few issues. 9.5 seems fair.
