The Witcher III: Wild Hunt launched in 2015 to critical acclaim. We awarded the game a 10/10, with critic Kevin VanOrd calling the open-world title “incredible and sumptuous.”
He wrote: “Make no mistake: this is one of the best role-playing games ever crafted, a titan among giants and the standard-setter for all such games going forward. Where the Witcher 2 sputtered to a halt, The Witcher 3 is always in a crescendo, crafting battle scenarios that constantly one-up the last, until you reach the explosive finale and recover in the glow of the game’s quiet denouement. But while the grand clashes are captivating, it is the moments between conflicts, when you drink with the local clans and bask in a trobairitz’s song, that are truly inspiring.” Read more in our full The Witcher III: Wild Hunt review.
We also enjoyed The Witcher III’s expansions, meanwhile, with our Hearts of Stone review boasting a 9/10 and our Blood and Wine review an 8/10. The game’s developer, CD Projekt Red, was in the news this week after it responded to ex-employees’ criticisms.
