THE WITCHER III: WILD HUNT

CD Projekt RED



The morning had dawned clear and cold, with a crispness that hinted at the end of summer...

Oops, wrong fantasy novel series. Although let’s face it, the works of Andrzej Sapkowski and George RR Martin do cover similar ground – although the latter author has more of a penis thing going on.

The upshot of this is that even if your only avenue into high fantasy thus far has been TV’s Game of Thrones, you’re going to love it here in this action RPG playground, for you get to be all interactive as you get medieval, rather than just sitting back passively.

Events kick off where they finished up in Assassins of Kings. You’re still Geraldo Rivera- we’re sorry, we’ll type that again. You’re still Geralt of Rivia and you’re still a monster-hunting Witcher (otherwise the game’s title would be rather misleading). You’re hunting your monochromatic lover Yennefer of Vengerberg, but the hunting may not just be in one direction. Yes, it’s starting a solo career...

Umm, so anyway, the overarching story is as epic as you’d hope. The creepy Wild Hunt riders are hot on your particular jacksie, and somehow it’s all come down to you to save everybody else’s. Your swordsmanship comes in very handy as you tackle man and beast of various sizes, cast spells, craft stuff and do all the usual things that such games throw up – just on an incredibly grander scale. Skyrim? Teensy!

You’ll traverse lush landscapes – and likely stop to marvel at some of the incredible vistas. You’ll amble on foot, you’ll gambol on horse and you’ll ramble by boat. You’ll complete main and side missions, or sometimes just chat with folk that you encounter in your travels. Plus you’ll likely get pissed off at ladders...

You’ll also lose time – lots of time. But if you’ve got it to spare then oy Geralt, Wild Hunt is good.

take me back to the start...
