    An amazing marriage of world-class storytelling and strategic card gaming, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is a fantastic RPG in its own right.

    The Witcher Tales is a strange potion that is surprisingly good. From a logical point of view, a game that mixes so many genres together can’t be this amazing, but then comes CDPR, a company that is just unable to develop bad titles.

    It may not be The Witcher game you expected, but Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is an exceptional addition to the series, and a must-play for all Gwent fans.

    A strategy / puzzle game masqueraded into a card game, set in the world of Witcher. Only CD Projekt RED could take something phenomenally strange and turn it into such a magnificent and addictive game.

    Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is a tough and pure RPG without compromise, with a great card-based combat system.

    Thronebreaker is an interesting spin-off, with a clever puzzle design and an interesting atmosphere. But its story could have been so much better.

    Thronebreaker struggles as a card game but excels as a Witcher game due to its rich narrative and excellent, if simple, worldbuilding.

    Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is a perfect game. If you are done with it, then try Gwent: The Witcher Card Game.

    The best written game I've seen in a long time. It was full of hard decisions as you'd expect from Witcher world.

    It was 30 hours of pure pleasure. It had some small or bigger bugs (nothing game-breaking and most likely they will be addressed in next patch). The plot was great and whole game was like super evolved audio book with elements of Gwent in between. I am not a big card games fan, but the battle mechanic here was well balanced. Game could sometimes be challenging (but not dumb hard) but overall difficulty level was very well designed (i played on the hardest one). Riddles were always amazing. Overall it was great to come back to Witcher's world and i hope they will continue with other Witcher Tales :)

The game’s temporary exclusivity to GOG certainly didn’t help at release. Yet the game's story, aesthetics and solid gameplay mechanics push it to way above an average game and in to a worthy spin off of the Witcher franchize. Expand

If you like it, good on you and I'm happy for you. For everyone else: spend your money elsewhere. Expand
