...you bought a game for the experience points? what the f*** does that even mean? and nice, you bought a game who's one universally contested aspect is the combat, specifically for the combat.

Combat is serviceable, and it definitely becomes a matter of life or death if you crank it up to Death March. People who trash the game for its combat would definitely be the same that said Morrowind was bad because of it, whereas there's a system to which to make Geralt fun to fight with, and a progression endeavor to create appropriately-leveled gear to take on the next part of the quest.

If you're on GameFAQs, you're already the type of person that will take the time to appreciate the systems that eventually develop into a very deep combat system, whereas it might appear as choppy to the uninformed player, who doesn't invest a little time in reading a little on what Signs do, and how to use them properly.

You'll be surprised when you hit lvl 9-10 where every encounter that was so unwittingly impossible suddenly becomes an enjoyable struggle, then a complete walk in the park as you keenly devise your strategy.

Death March or bust, in my case. (Beat it twice, best game of the decade so far.)

IMHO.


This is absolute hogwash.

On "Death March", the hardest difficulty, it's dodge until it's your turn to attack and then attack a time or two and back off. You don't need to use any signs or potions or grenades or anything. There's nothing "deep" about the combat here.

I know the real reason he bought it.

Let's just be honest TC, you bought it because it was on sale, with all the DLCs and plus the Witcher brand sounds appealing, so you bought it thinking you got something great.

Minor spoilers When you're chasing goats for a quest, you know this game has got problems.

Get ready for 150+ hours on your first playthrough if you do everything then there's NG+ and you could choose different dialog options, try different builds, etc. so 300+ hrs total

Whatever you say, Stone Cold Steve Austin. If you can't figure out how to stagger foes, blind them, build up your crits, go ham with life leech or ANYTHING that can break the game in short, that's your own damn failing at gaming.

People saying something isn't deep because they're straight up left-clicking their way through fights, without acknowledging that a player with a little strategy can do them 10 TIMES FASTER, aren't exactly points of reference when it comes to judging a battle system.

It was the same thing with FFXIII. "Meh you can just auto-attack the boss for about 25 minutes and boom it's done". Holy s***, good job man, by that time I'll be 3 chapters ahead of you.

II'm saying it's not deep because it's flat, boring, predictable, and easy. The recipe for success is dodge, dodge, dodge, attack. You can add whatever "flair" you want, but the depth isn't there and it's real noticeable.

The rest of the game, however, is an absolute masterpiece.

Yeah, I'm even dead serious when I say I prefer Witcher 1 combat to Witcher 3. At least in Witcher 1 I can set Group Stance and murder everything around me in 2 seconds.
