Well i played it again for about an hour this evening and its just not doing it for me,the story is way to deep and well over my head and to be honest i haven't got a clue what the story is about neither do i care.
There are way to many conversations that drag on and on and on and on,and i find myself literally hitting the playstation square button and fast forwarding through them which completely misses the whole point of such a story driven game.
Having now seen it in the flesh,personally it doesn't even look that exciting and the combat not very satisfying to say the least,the game may pick up and get way much better but the 6 hours i have spent with it hasn't really give me much gaming pleasure and i have serious doubts if i got the patience to continue with it in a few days.
Its just to deep,vast amounts to explore which quite frankly are overwhelming and daft as it sounds kind of puts me of,every area you visit there are side quests.notice boards with other quests,Ncps with a few more and every tom dick and harry you care to mention wants you to do something other than the story.
And believe you me you have to take on these side quest to progress and level up else you may get hammered when doing the story mission and you have a inferior level to whats required.
Im going to keep trying,but based on my brief experience I'm not blown away and Bloodborne for me literally blows this out of the water,slightly different type of game but Bloodborne is exciting fast and fresh,this is slow,tedious and for me quite boring.
hey I'm not saying this is a bad game for all you rpg fans itching to play it,its just not my cup of tea and it doesn't immerse me like its suppose to.
My best explanation is like this really,i hate reading books,and you know when you pick up a book and it gently tells you about the characters within the first few pages,I'm literally having to go back to page one to look up a person I'm reading about on page 3 having completely forgot who the hell say Adam is only 5 minutes ago.
Thats like this for me with The Witcher,I'm literally not taken in by the story,find it way to boring and tedious,have forgotten what they said 10 seconds ago and i don't like making choices that mean absolutely nothing.
Thats correct,after many long boring conversations you have a limited time to respond with a set answer that don't make any sense at all.
Its obvious I'm not interested in massive story telling epics of this nature,nothing wrong with that horses for courses i guess.
Shame i expected that i would really like this based on the videos i watched,but to me at present its just another game not to get excited about and a game that really i wouldn't have missed if it had passed me by.
You never know,if i manage to persevere with it i may or may not change my opinion,but don't hold your breath.
And remember this is just my thoughts about what i think,would have loved to come on here and say the game blows me away,but sorry I'm just not feeling the love even though it has outstanding review scores.
