Role-playing games don't come better than this: The Witcher 3 is the finest example of an RPG. And now it's available for Nintendo Switch so you can play it on the go.Read full verdict

For Giant world to lớn explore Hundreds of hours of engrossing gameplay Deep upgrade/alchemy/crafting systems Engaging characters và cutscenes Gorgeous visuals và great sound Difficulty levels to lớn cater for all

( - For role-playing game fans it"s only once in a blue moon a title comes along that"s so engrossing you"ll willingly surrender not just a little bit of time khổng lồ play it, but days và weeks of your life. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a prime example; a captivating game that, for our money, is the best RPG since Skyrlặng.

But, if anything, it"s a little bit more grown-up than that 2011 Bethesdomain authority epic. There"s a lot more f-ing and blinding for starters, the occasional c-bomb included. And much more blood. Oh, & let"s not forget the smattering of nudity. Yep, Witcher 3"s adult themes are quickly established from the moment the camera lingers on a bare derrière mere minutes inkhổng lồ the game. Yet - và despite that reading lượt thích an apparent Hollywood "sex, blood, swearing, - buy, buy, buy!" kind of chiến dịch - it"s not gratuitous, rather more representative sầu of a believable world. Y"know, one where mages and magic are a normality.

It"s also a timely release. With millions of Game of Thrones fans the world over, there are inevitable comparisons - c"tháng, even Charles Dance, voice of Tywin Lannister in Game of Thrones, voices Emperor Emhyr var Emreis here - despite Andrzej Sapkowski"s short stories preceding those of George RR Martin.

But whether you"re an existing tín đồ, a newcomer, or someone who"s looking to replay the game on Nintenvì chưng Switch (that"s why we"re updating this review), the swordplay, magic, monsters and fire gods certainly make for damn good entertainment. So, attention grabbed, nipples acknowledged, we"ve spent dozens of hours delving inkhổng lồ The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt"s world, exploring its decision-based storyline, side missions and sprawling landscapes. Here"s why, whether you"re a fantasy bạn or not, it"s still a stone cold classic of RPGs.

One giant beast

When it arrived baông chồng in 2015 there was no game of the same epic scale as The Witcher 3. Even now, five years later, it"s still a huge world lớn explore. The open landscape throws you into a world of magic và combat, led by enticing characters & great acting that will keep you hooked. Ok, so Geralternative text, the witcher you play, might"ve been listening khổng lồ Christian Bale"s Batman a little too much, but his husky voice becomes part of the game"s charm.

After the main cutscene kicks-off proceedings - in hand-drawn graphic novel style with story narrator, a theme that continues with each loading & progress scene, but that feels distant from the style otherwise used within the game - the story begins with you seeking Ciri, your adopted daughter, who, for reasons unknown at the time, the evil Wild Hunt seek.

It"s from here the basics of combat are learned, in a flashback lớn Ciri"s childhood. But there"s a whole lot to master, which takes time khổng lồ then apply effectively in the game. The Witcher 3 is no plodding turn-based role-player: you"ll need to lớn attachồng in fast-paced, real-time scenarquả táo. It"s not all slash, slash, slash button bashing either; parry, dodge and use of stronger sword attacks in combination khuyễn mãi giảm giá with different foes. Other sword-bearing folk tkết thúc to be easily dispatched, but groups of wraiths, ghouls và the lượt thích will dem& well-timed rolls and dodges lớn get around.

To add khổng lồ the mixing pot there are a variety of magical spells that are essential for tactical attack and defence - particularly when ensconced by a group of enemies. And let"s not forget additional items, including crossbows & bombs, that come in handy for certain combat... or just sheer provocation.

All this has the makings of a deep role-player, but that"s just the tip of the iceberg really. You"ll later learn crafting and alchemy, trading, & how khổng lồ apply experience points khổng lồ specific character enhancement trees (earned from quests, resulting in your levelling-up), all of which are essential lớn the game. Whether you chose the path of warrior, alchemist or magician is down to lớn the choices you make when applying upgrades. Enhancements can also be multiplied with mutagens, sourced from specific enemy kills.

Horsing around

In the first instance the game"s controls feel a little too heavy - something we still think lớn this day, especially when it comes lớn horsebachồng riding - but it"s something you"ll get used lớn. Well, after trying to lớn climb up rather than run around a damn ladder for the fifth time. Controlling Geralt doesn"t feel as smooth as playing, say, Grand Theft Auto 5, nor is there the deftness of Assassin"s Creed when it comes khổng lồ jumping gaps or climbing. But those are entirely different games, ones we"ve sầu played enough of và enjoyed for what they are.

And khổng lồ be fair, Geralternative text is wearing armour, which must be pretty hefty given how his horse, Roach, handles. An essential element lớn the game given its scale, you"ll need khổng lồ use your steed to navigate more swiftly through the landscape. Just watch out for dips, walls and even some trees, which will catch you out và slow you down, often to lớn a stop. In busier areas we"re often inclined to just run around on foot rather than via hooves for simplicity"s sake. Roach could definitely be more fluid in control, and despite a double-tap-to-follow-the-road mechanic, he"s not got the brains lớn always head to your desired location. That"s horses for you: neigh respect.

Traversing such a giant landscape can take a long time too. Fortunately there are fast travel signposts, discovered as you enter relevant areas - whether crossroads, towns, cities, hideouts, caves, và so forth - after which they appear on the world maps. This brown-paper guide of the Witcher world is so big it would unfurl lượt thích a comical quadruple-kích cỡ broadsheet newspaper. It"s mind-boggling just how massive this game is: think Skyrim and then multiply that by three.

It"s essential, therefore, lớn make use of the miniature version that hovers top-right of screen. Problem is, some core nearby points of interest (such as nearest fast travel signpost) don"t show-up if they fall outside of this small circle, so you"ll be thực đơn digging a little more than you ought khổng lồ. And fast travel signposts aren"t as plentiful as they should be, particularly from some positions within the game.


Once you"ve got stuck into lớn the main storyline - & no spoilers here - you"ll quickly encounter multiple quests that show-off the game"s breadth. You can spend excessive sầu time playing cards - "gwent", a complex thẻ game that we still aren"t hugely interested in, but which since spawned its own separate dedicated game for Smartphone - or tìm kiếm out that rare herb needed for a potion. Sound too boring? Go explore a waterside và cut the heads and limbs off some drowners và ghouls instead. Or craft some armour.

It all makes for a rich tapestry of gameplay that doesn"t throw you in at the deep-kết thúc, nor become single-minded in its approach. There are four levels of difficulty, varying from accessible to lớn bastard-hard, which can be changed at any point in the game too. If you don"t master dodging và parrying, though, then best stiông xã khổng lồ the middle-to-lower settings.

If the lead missions are getting too tough then you"ll need to lớn hold bachồng your progress, explore some more khổng lồ gain additional experience points và level-up your abilities. Enemies show a power bar alongside a number, the latter which represents their màn chơi. If you"ve achieved, say, cấp độ 10 và your foe are at a similar cấp độ then you"re in good shape khổng lồ take them down.

However, the more enemies there are in a group, the tougher that can be. Avoid backing yourself inlớn a corner otherwise you"ll find The Witcher 3"s biggest stumbling block: a perilous tự động camera that can really work against you, particularly when fighting indoors. With groups you"ll vày well to lớn deploy Bloodborne tactics: separate the larger groups into individuals or smaller groups. Monsters tkết thúc to attachồng en masse (which can be annoying when four drowners strike you simultaneously) whereas human opponents usually hold their ground, often goading you forward with come-hither hand movements.

Don"t fret if an enemy is four levels or so above sầu your màn chơi though. If they"re guaranteed lớn be beyond your abilities then a red skull symbol will also show above sầu their cấp độ - essentially telling you to get the hell out of there.

There"s one big issue here though: if you"ve sầu entered a mission where there"s no escape, & it"s a cấp độ well beyond your means, you best make sure you"ve manually saved prior, otherwise there"s no getting out of there. Which can be a total shutdown.

Like a boss

Things change pace even more when trùm characters are encountered. You"ll work your way up to each of them, but some will take a couple of goes khổng lồ take down. If you get stuchồng then the bestiary - a glossary of beasts và their weaknesses, found in your inventory - can be helpful, assuming you"ve acquired the relevant foe"s details from a previous quest.

Bosses are typically giant & have sầu faces that would make small children cry. But we"ve sầu already established it"s not a game for the lil"uns, so enjoy those ferocious wyvern beaks, three-eyed fiends, & gross-out botchlings. And try not to cry too much when they dispatch you.

Typically magic & potions are the way lớn forge ahead in the big fights. Alchemy can be performed on the road, so you needn"t find a specific location khổng lồ create new bombs, potions and oils. Looting for these ingredients is the best way to lớn come about things - và, in our game, nobody bar guards seem khổng lồ give a hoot about us stealing everything - but the alchemy panel can become heavy with a barrage of items in little time (which slows down loading and navigation).

For armour và weapons, however, you"ll need lớn find the relevant armourer or blacksmith of the right skill khổng lồ craft. There are portable repair kits, found infrequently, that you"ll want to lớn use only at the essential moments. Swords damage quickly too, so it"s a good job your standard duo - silver for monsters, steel for humans - can be supplemented with as many additions, axes, maces, and so forth, as you want (subject to maximum weight). Looking after weapons can cost you a pretty penny; the primary use of extra ones is lớn dismantle them & acquire the resulting goods for crafting better items.

Gorgeous details

The Wild Hunt is the first Witcher game lớn make its way khổng lồ consoles, with Xbox One & PlayStation 4 versions joining the PC copy - and theNintenvị Switch joining the tiệc nhỏ in 2020 too. The reason is obvious: there are graphical flourishes that, PC excluded, wouldn"t have been possible without the new-ren consoles. Even the Switch does a darn good job overall, all things considered.

Some of the small things stand out in particular: the way the wind catches the trees; how sunlight breaks through the branches as a forest thins out; the flow of characters" hair; even wet skin after a bath. Of course there"s better lớn be had out there, because the gaming world moves fast, và five sầu years is a long time in any game"s life. Take a glimpse at CD Projekt Red"s forthcoming Cyberpunk 2077, for example, & prepare to be blown away.
In addition lớn the great soundtraông xã the cast vì chưng a cracking job too. It"s not all down to Charles Dance, mind, but the majority British cast bringing all manner of islander tongues khổng lồ the game, often with tongue-in-cheek impact that"ll bring a smile to lớn your face. Shame the producers, CD Projekt Red, re-use many of the same faces for folk you meet on the way - it"s kind-of eerie - và that some characters, including roông chồng trolls and witches, are borderline incomprehensible (you"ll be reading the subtitles). Oh, và almost all the children are inexplicably terrifying.


We"ve spent a lot of time playing The Witcher 3. After completing it baông chồng in 2015 when it first launched, we"re now deep into the Nintenbởi vì Switch version và still loving every minute of the experience.

We can forgive a dodgy camera angle here, a bit too much nipple there, or even a misbehaving horse bumping into yet another tree, because all those other glimmering moments of brilliance amount lớn something greater. The Switch version also comes with all the downloadable nội dung (DLC) latched on too, creating an even more complete experience.

You needn"t be a diehard fantasy genre bạn either: The Witcher 3"s massive world, gorgeous landscapes, balanced gameplay, detailed quests and story are all compelling enough lớn hook you in và keep you there. Just be prepared to sacrifice your normal life because you"ll be scratching around trying khổng lồ find the dozens of extra hours you"ll want to spkết thúc playing it.
