The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt : CE for me is one of the best games i've play in the system, this game has a wide variety when it comes to stat or skill building, you have control to which path you want to go according to your choice of responses to NPC's (Main or Side Quest) for me this is the game I wouldn't let go (Trade/Sell). I've played the game first on Switch, tried it on PC and still loved it. it has a very big difference when it comes to graphics but im more of a handheld kind of person. I would highly recommend this game to a RPG fan.

We already know that the Witcher 3 is one of the greatest action RPGs out there. It’s been on every console and every time it shows off just how beautifully created its world is. 

This review is about the experience on the Switch, which by most accounts is a relatively weaker console. 

When it comes to graphics, this was definitely a downgrade. If you came into it from the PC experience, it can be extremely jarring. There’s no wispy Geralt and no foliage as far as the eyes can see. 

On the other hand, everything else goes so smoothly. The combat is as fluid as ever and you can gallop around the vast open world with only a few frame drops here and there.

What makes this Switch edition even more worth the investment is that it’s Cloud Save enabled. For those who already have the Witcher on the Steam of GOG accounts, you can easily import your save files onto the Switch. That means you can bring around the Witcher experience wherever you go. Plus, when you’re done going portable, you can save your progress to the Cloud for the next time you need adventuring on the PC.

I’ve had the PC copy for a while and I’ve had some progress, but it’s easy to forget when you have to get to a desk and turn things on every time. The fact that I can play it wherever I am, even in bed, has made exploring the Witcher universe even more accessible. 

Who knows, I might finally get to finishing it!

Loved it. The graphics are of course lowered down but, especially if like me don't think the graphics are the main point of a game, you are gonna love it.

A masterpiece, the story, the world, the possibilities of roleplay...

Magnificent

In the end, it's a testament to the art direction and captivating gameplay that the Switch port of The Witcher 3, stripped of most of its technical achievements, is still a damn good and immersive video game. If you haven't played The Witcher 3 yet, this is a good opportunity to jump in. The game runs better and is available at a more affordable price on the other platforms, but if you can live with the heavy visual downgrades for the sake of portability, then this is as good as The Witcher 3 gets.

The Switch port of The Witcher 3: Complete Edition certainly isn’t how I’d recommend you experience CD Projekt Red’s epic fantasy masterpiece for the first time, but it’s serviceable if you’re unable to play on PC or a more powerful console — or prefer to do your monster hunting away from a TV. On a full-size screen, however, it suffers to the point where it looks more reminiscent of the 360 generation than the current one.

At the end of the day, The Witcher 3 continues to be one of the most impressive RPGs to date. Sure, the Switch version’s visuals and resolution are rough around the edges, but the rest of it is surprisingly excellent. I don’t know what wizardry or dark ritual CD Projekt Red and Saber Interactive had to perform in order to get this behemoth running on the Switch, but they pulled it off, and I’m not going to ask any questions. If you’ve never played The Witcher 3, and you don’t care about ray tracing and teraflops, than the Switch version is perfect.
