1. It has many hub worlds. Not open world as they described.
2. Controls awe awkward. Why do I hold o button instead of triangle. Getting over horse or stopping over a bush to get herbs is clunky. Rest of the controls are decent.
3. That said its a great game.

As mystro eluded to, could you clarify what you mean by "hub worlds"? I'm unfamiliar with it.

Also that's great Soriku, sounds a bit like the Skyrim one then. Excellent!

Think about assassins creed or dragon age. Main world is certainly big but it was marketing fail. I am a little disappointed.

Ah, I think I understand then. Do you have immediate access to all the map(s) or not, out of interest? Tads and I were discussing this a little earlier and all I really wanna do now is jump on my horse and ride out in a random direction to see what pops up.

I haven't tested that yet but I will try today.

Finding it boring so far. I'll invest a few more hours before I make a final verdict

To be fair, they've said back in 2013 that it's a mix of hub-based and open world and for people expecting TES level of freedom that might be disappointing - personally, I find both having advantages and disadvantages.

Hey, unrelated to the OP, but I was wondering if I have to have played witcher 1/2 to really understand the story in witcher 3. I already preordered it but I'm hesitant to go pick it up for that reason lol.


you technically dont have to , but the names of places you get to visit and certain impt character names iwll b ementioned  in witcher 3 that come from withcer 1 and 2. It helps but its not very important.

Can I just ask, I was on the game for around three hours yesterday and I noticed the levelling up seems quite slow, do you actually get XP for killing enemies? Or is it just completing the quests that give XP? Also i found a notice board in a village which had 7 bits of paper to take, I gathered that each bit of paper was going to be a side quest so I took them all but I only actually got 3 side quests from taking those bits of paper, is this right?


You do gain exp from killing enemies. its not alot. Most of your exp will come from doing main quest, side quest, witcher contracts and other side missions.  The stuff on the board is mixture of side quests, killing monster and witcher contract. they are categorised for you .  expand the categories to see all the quest you have accepted

If you don't mind me asking, what issues do you have with it so far?

Also for people with the game; how is the quest structure? Are they robust?
