The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt review

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – computer role-playing game based on the series of novels “The Witcher” Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski, the continuation of the computer games “The Witcher” and “The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings”

In spite of the bad exit «The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings», which was full of problems with the productive side of the game, fans of the history of witch Gerelta Rivii eagerly awaited continuation of the saga, splashing saliva monitors their computers. As they say, the promised waiting for 3 years, but returned to the hunter of monsters I had to wait another year. Exit «The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt» roared a resounding explosion of positive feedback the players all over the world.

The plot of the game is tied at the witcher Geralt of Rivia, who hunts monsters and, of course, not for free. As in the previous parts, everything happens immediately after the events of the second part. However, the developers have come up with a brand new adventure for the hero, do not forget about the important events of the previous parts of the trilogy.

Two swords good and better bomb

Use the bombs to destroy monsters have nests, which in the game a lot

Gameplay has undergone significant changes since the first game. The gameplay is similar to the mechanics of the second part, but with some additions. Now, it is not enough to be able to swing the two swords, as Geralt will have to use oil against various creatures that inhabit the world of the witch, potions to restore health to the crossbow enemies with wings and bombs monsters, deprived of the ability to fly. All it really needs to be used in the course of passing, as a partner for the witch did not come up, but the world, to inhabit his malevolent visitors only increased.

Management is not much different from what it was in The Witcher 2. It is convenient to use the full potential of the control over large areas, but in raw sewerage, urban corners and tight spaces will have to string up. Fortunately, in these moments the game a little bit.

To work on the soundtrack for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was brought Polish composer Marcin Pshibylovich and Polish folk group “Percival”. Music in the game is unique and ideally suited to the style of play. Marcin himself literally had to move to CD Projekt RED’s office and create a music system to play from the very beginning of the development of the third part. I must say that music is an important part of the game, as it gives a certain atmosphere. Honestly, composers of the game it happened.

No filters

Picture in the new part of the game looks great. This is assuming that the game developers had to seriously cut back on the possibility of the graphics engine on which the game works. However, much like the picture will look in the game is highly dependent on the characteristics of your computer. Also graphics in The Witcher 3 looks more natural than in the previous section, where the color is oversaturated, and it seemed as if you are playing under one of the filters «Retrica». It failed and character animation, as it looks realistic and believable.

Open World – good or bad?

Of course, in a series of games about the Witcher lacked a large and open world, as the story is interesting, colorful characters a lot of places where I could get stuck in Geralt even more trouble. What is the problem? A huge problem in the world. If the second part was replayability, and the player can go through the main storyline twice, but in different ways, the new game will have to take important decisions after a certain plot turn, which comes after the passage of most of the story lines. Players who are on the main dish only love story, this game may not like. Because of the huge number of side quests and questions marks can bother the player to pass on. You agree that after the completion of the story, side quests are not so interesting to go through. Of course, an open and non-linear world of the Witcher played on hand, but if the developers have gone too far? Still, world map and additional jobs could have been done a little less, because the story is passed, and the world would like to explore further, but simply do not have forces.

The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt review-4

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – this is insanely beautiful and atmospheric RPG, with details spelled out perfectly conceived plot and characters. CD Projekt RED, literally, made a miracle, turning from a small company in the best of the best. The game will delay you with his head to the fascinating world of adventure, full of human and non-human destinies, sometimes funny, sometimes tragic, but there are similar to the fate of real people.
