The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Review | Stuff

All the gore, nudity and cinematic storytelling of The Witcher series, but on a scale that dwarfs Skyrim.

The story is too old to be commented.

Why is it necessary to knock Skyrim to complement The Witcher? Because you don't care for Skyrim is no reason to disparage it to sell Witcher. I plan to buy this game and enjoy it, just as I did Skyrim. I hope I do enjoy it more than Skyrim. But these high scoring reviews do little to convince me that it is indeed the better game.

There are things the Bethesda does in their RPG's that bring them to life like no one else has done so far. This developer has paid homage to Skyrim on many occasions and that has made me even more intrigued to play it after play in the Witcher 2. I thought the Witcher 2 was a good fun but too linier. I didn't like the feeling of being dragged along. I am hoping this drabs me the same way Elder Scrolls game does. But I am not expecting it to play like elder Scrolls.

3 things that the witcher is missing, for one, the voice of geralt is horrible, no arrow and not a total open world in the witcher makes skyrim the winner.

1.They nailed Geralt's voice as it's meant to be kinda unpleasant just like the books iirc.

2. Arrows?

3. Yeah, Skyrim was definitely a better open-world, what with all the loading screens and whatnot /s. Seriously though, the W3 world is seamless (apart from the loading zones when leaving a massive area) and I don't see the point in comparing this with Skyrim..a game from 2011.

P.S. if you've watched the debut trailer for W3. They always advertised it as a 'Multi-Region Open World'

Does a crossbow not count, Smolinsk? Crossbows are cooler anyhow.

"Scale that dwarfs Skyrim" does not equal "better than skyrim"

It's funny that people are leaping to Skyrim's defence over something that just said "it's bigger" !

"That means The Witcher 3 is at least 3.7 times bigger than GTA: San Andreas (36 km2), 1.5 times bigger than GTA 5 (81 km2), 3.3 times bigger than Red Dead Redemption (41), 3 times bigger than Far Cry 4 (46 km2) and 3.5 times bigger than Skyrim (39 km2). In short, the final map will be absolutely massive in scale." - Gamingbolt

Personally I know I'll enjoy W3 as I loved the other 2 games and enjoy a proper story, but Skyrim really isn't comparable, you'd like them both for different reasons.

Why the hell are people arguing over the witcher and skyrim? They are both awesome RPGs and people play them because they like RPGs. Its such a ridiculous argument to have.
