Have your doctor's notes ready, or keep your kids home from school (then send them off anyway) -- whatever you can do to sit back and plant yourself into the world of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and not be at work as the game officially releases at retail in Australia today.
We've spent some time with it now, producing both a written review and a video review
, scoring the game a 10/10 for its scale and scope, its brilliantly dynamic story and variations in main and side quests.
It's also gorgeous.
Of course these things can often go awry on launch days with bad patches, servers breaking or any other number of gremlin-like activity. So consider this post home to your highs, lows and woes.
From or review:
There is no question in my mind that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been worth the wait. It’s sheer scale and absolution in content, alongside its surprisingly strong narrative -- both in the main quest lines, and the peripheral ones around them -- is delivered with a maturity rarely ever seen in games of this scope.
There’s Triple-A gaming, and then there’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
