The Witcher 3 ,which has been waiting by the RPG players for so long, has been presented to us with a story that as a last adventure with the monster hunter Geralt. Besides having a 30 more bigger map than the last Witcher game, it has stolen the hearts of RPG players with 80 hours of game story time.
In our first entrance to the game, a simple structured menu welcomes us. We can save our game to continue later in this menu and also we can directly start to a new game and find ourselves in a big and dangerous world.
There are 3 main story line in the game. In the first cinematic that we watch when we begin to a new game, we see the Geralt’s lover Yennefer escaping from a battle with fear. Throughout the playing time, we understand that Geralt is trying to find Yennefer that lost a short time ago.
We find ourselves next to Yennefer in the next video. While we’re going to ask questions like what happens to ourselves, why I’m here, we actually understand that it’s just a dream. In this dream section, the action and fighting mechanics we can use in the game are presented to us in a simple training tour.
REAL ADVENTURE BEGINS
The real adventure begins when Geralt wakes up from his dreams. But before we begin, we make potions, meditate to relax and focus and also grind our blades and knives just like in Witcher 2. Geralt is recovering his lost monster hunter soul in the second game with this game. In the second game, Geralt served as a diplomat who helped politicians rather than the creature hunter. But in Wild Hunt, many main and side missions are waiting for us. The Witcher 3 The most important feature that distinguishes Wild Hunt from its derivatives is that it offers us a world that lives completely. In this world, dynamic weather conditions, day and night cycle and active economic bond give a different atmosphere to the game. Unlike the second game, the active economy link is not necessarily the prices of the products we will interact with the markets are becoming dynamic. In other words, a plant extract that you take 3 cents today, depending on the seasonal conditions and clashes in that region can rise to 10 cents tomorrow.
As in the first two games in The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt, potions and oils are vital to us. If you have played Witcher before, you already know that you must not be attack to the creatures that come to you that you come across. But we should still remember. If you are to fight a creature in Witcher and this is one of the huge creatures we call the boss in this creature, the first thing you need to do is gather information about this creature. The team of Projeckt Red, who did not want to bother players in gathering information, has included an extremely broad creature encyclopedia in The Witcher 3. Thanks to this encyclopedia, you can learn the weaknesses of the creature you are going to face and drink the necessary mixtures, lubricate your sword with the specified oils and then you are ready to face the beast.
Advanced Alchemy and Crafting System
Producers who developed the alchemical system a little more than the second game did not forget the crafting system. The crafting system, which allows us to make new armor, weapons and equipment, has been transformed into a highly useful format with its renewed interface and even deeper combination options.
In the meantime, let’s mention the level of difficulty in the game. The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt has 4 difficulty levels. Although there are no gaps between these levels of difficulty, it is possible to say that there are some sharp transitions. For example, when you select the level of difficulty at level 2, the feature of filling the health bar with the existing meditation is completely eliminated at level 3 of difficulty. In this case, the game is not a little bit difficult for you. As long as you do not enter into unnecessary battles during the game, you will not need to meditate and wait for your health bar to fill. In Witcher 3, since we have a gigantic world that takes about 40 minutes to go from one end of the map to the other, there are many kinds of creatures. As we can pass without touching these creatures, we can destroy them all and continue our way like this.
‘’More blades, more battles!’’
The Witcher 3 has a more comprehensive combat system than other similar games. For example, when we compare it with a Dragon Age, we can easily say that the number of combinations of Geralt is much higher. Furthermore, the fact that our characters produce different combinations according to the weapon they use is another advantage of the fighting system.
In fighting Geralt, you need to take advantage of his senses and magical powers rather than pure muscle strength. For example, against a group of creatures that come over you before a fire attack, the group can be burned, and in the meantime you can bring down the defenseless. When you try to fight with muscle masses with large groups, the attacks coming at the same time can put you in a difficult situation.
Geralt’s talent tree is the last topic we will mention about the fighting skills. This skill tree has an extremely wide range of content that goes with 5-combinations. In other words, there will be a lot of talents waiting for you to open for approximately 100 hours.
‘’This big world that you have to survive in.’’
The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt has a really big open world map waiting for us. When it comes to such a large map, the question of how to distance distances between human beings is surely coming to mind. The filmmakers have made such a big map, and they have not neglected to give the players a few simple ways of transportation. In Witcher 3, you can use the boats on rivers which are seen as an important transportation corridor on the map, you can go with your horse every time you call and most importantly you can open the fast travel points in the places you visit and you can go from one point to the other in seconds.
In addition to your main missions, many side missions await you in this living world. Even if you don’t see on your map, a stranger on the road may ask you to kill a few creatures for him. The producers also integrated the level system into this part in order to avoid confusion in the side missions. So, to be able to do the side task, you must be at the specified level. This is actually a clue to the difficulty of the task. Because if you didn’t have a level system for side quests, you could spend your hours in vain for a task where your power is not enough.
In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, even the slightest choice you make when you play a game is taking you to different places later in the script. So your choices had better be for your long term plans. Finally, let’s talk about the graphics and sound features of The Witcher 3. The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt, powered by Red Engine 3, offers players high quality visuals. Character detailing and object coverings create an atmosphere of play that is very close to reality. It is also possible to say that the music accompanying this atmosphere has been carefully selected. The music playing in the background varies according to the intensity of the emotion you are currently experiencing. For example, when Geralt is angry, he plays hard music in the background, and when you get close to a woman or want to get close, music automatically connects to the romantic.
As a result, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt offers players an adventure that can be played over and over again for hours. If you have a special interest in RPG games, or if you are interested in starting this genre, this game should definitely be The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt.
