Is this game worth buying?

12 posts in this topic

Like the title says. I've never played Witcher 1 or 2, and definitely not 3, so I'm wondering if it's hard to get into without having prior knowledge of the games?

You'll miss out on some of the lore, and the lack of Witcher 1 & 2 on Sony consoles prevents any kind of save-importing. It's very similar to playing Mass Effect 3 without having played the first two games. You'll still have a helluva good time, but you'll miss out on some stuff, like references, past characters, story, etc.

 

Objectively seen, it's a fantastic game with equally great DLC, so I'd definitely recommend picking this up. And if you do want to enrich your Witcher knowledge first, just watch lore videos on YouTube.

Yes you can easily play without any prior knowledge. However its not such a bad thing if you want to watch those "5 min Summary of Witcher 1/2" videos to get the gist of the backstory.

If you love RPGs this game is to good to pass up. Ton and tons of hours, solid story and gameplay. Has most things you want from in a RPG.

I haven't played for two games either but this game blew my mind off. Even though you don't know the connections of the storyline, you will enjoy it.
Well, to be more precise blood won't be in your brain to think anyway

It's one of the highest rated games/most awarded games of the year. I'm pretty sure that translates to "yes, it's worth buying".

Yes, definitely. It was my first Witcher game and I caught on to what was going on. There's also something of a codex in it you can use too. The only thing that directly references the previous games is when you're asked about what happened in them and you can answer which ones. It will be confusing but your answers don't affect much at all.

The answer is yes.

 

I'll get back to playing Witcher 3 once I start cleaning out a chunk of my backlog of games. Terrific title, definitely deserves it's GOTY award.

Yes!! Just buy it. I had no clue about any Witcher lore before I got 3, they have an intro which explains some of the lore. Also, you learn a fair bit of past lore within the game, even though it's not strictly needed.

 

Personally, after I had done with 3 I went back and got the novels. My favourite game of all time and the only game which has got me to buy all the art books, novels, t-shirts, statues, previous games xD I'm literally addicted to it lol.

Yes!  Doesn't matter if you played 1 or 2!  I'm just getting back to it after a year (or more?) layoff from the game....

This is my favorite ps4 game I gave played as of today.  It got me reading the books in chronological order, I am on the 3rd, and have also bought the comic trilogy as well.  Can't help myself.

As I only own Playstation consoles, I've never had the opportunity to play Witcher 1&2, but let this be said: Witcher 3 is one of the absolute best games on ps4. Period. The lore, the combat, the story, the side quests, the magnitude, the characters, the leveling and development... everything about it is just straight awesome! Get the complete edition and you'll have a plitnum plus dlc worth about 200 hours of gameplay.

 

PS if you're planning on 100% this game, follow a guide or you will end up missing a lot of trophies on the way, forcing a new game plus scenario! Unless you're into that sort of thing ;)
