With its excellent story, charming characters, varied and engaging gameplay experience, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales can be considered a true The Witcher game, despite not being a traditional RPG. The game may be too easy, but this small flaw in no way compromises the game's overall quality.
Thronebreaker interweaves Gwent into its story in smart ways that keep it from feeling like an intrusive method for resolving combat situations, helping you learn its intricate systems while engaging in unique quests and rulesets. Gwent was a side attraction in The Witcher 3, but through Thronebreaker, it's blossomed into something new that stands on its own as a proud member of the Witcher family.
After all, it may be the only reason why Gwent players would pick it up in the first place. Fans of The Witcher and general non-Gwent players will no doubt enjoy it for the casual adventure, but it might not have the emotional punch some would expect. Even so, it’s definitely worth your time if only to experience the Battle for the Bridge on the Yaruga.
