Is Witcher 3 Worth To Play?
First of all, The Witcher 3 is an immersive CD Projekt saga. It smells of labour, from its music adorned with magnificent melodies to its delicately composed tasks. You know this is such labour that after a long time I could feel close to the land of Tamriel. The texts on the task screen, which were incredibly beautiful in previous games, are also evident in The Witcher 3. From the smallest chase mission to the ghost hunt, each mission has a fantastic background story. Okay, so it was in previous games, and I admit there is a problem: The total number of tasks for The Witcher 2 probably overtaken in the first two regions of the third game.
Writing individual background stories for hundreds of missions, and even the astonishing linking of seemingly unrelated “simple” side quests stands out as the most vital aspect of The Witcher 3. At the same time, the freedom given to you while performing your tasks is at the highest level. There are multiple things to do and how you do them is entirely up to you.
The mission that I hit the game with – and many of my friends were incredibly impressed by the same mission – is a ghost mission in White Orchard. Tracking, trapping, solving mysteries. They are all reflected on your monitors expertly. Especially when you finish the task, you’ll see the mind-blowing dialogue—both the fogging eyes of the other person and that fragility in his voice.
In addition, the Witcher 3 modes can make the game totally different.
