You can boil any game down to whatever crude summary terms you want. The Witcher 3: go to new town, get quests, do quests, repeat. It's true that this game's centerpieces are its bosses and there's not a great deal to do in between, but it's not just a case of "kill a giant" because every boss is a massive puzzle and they are generally very different from each other. Not to mention that there are 16 of them with a fair bit of navigation of tricky terrain to get to them!

Cheers buzz.... go sleep!
If you've a PS Pro this looks a must have remaster, one of the best ever. If however (like me) you 'only' have a base PS4, the proposition is much, much less tempting. 60fps on PS Pro, 30fps base PS4.

Stunning, thanks buzz!
Is this game really that good? All I've seen is players roaming about a empty world battling them bosses with nothing inbetween how long does the game take to complete?

In the video above that I quoted in, it shows how the game stacks up against the pro and to be honest it does look pretty good even at 30fps...

According to How Long To Beat the PS2 game was 10 Hours for all styles and 20 Hours for a completionist.
Seems a really good price for how new this game is, i'm tempted to wait for it to drop to a tenner but will i have to wait til like 2020 :'l
A beautiful looking remaster of a game that I've always wanted to play. Cheers Buz.

You pay when the order is confirmed and ready for collection
Temping!
How long do they keep C&C orders for? The game is out on a wednesday but I won't get to Smyths until the weekend.

Also, doesn't come with the theme and sword, right?
So don't need this right now but couldn't say no for the price, heat.

30fps is plenty for a game like this. Last time i played this it was in 3D on PS3. As it has to effectively draw the game twice i was only getting somewhere around 20fps. The quality of the game always shines through, no matter how good the graphics are or what the fps is.

Same. I was looking at the shopto deal last night before deciding I would wait for a better price as I didn’t need the game. Didn’t expect to be placing an order i day later but glad I waited. It’s a no brainier at this price. One of the best games ever made.

It is £22 on Amazon with the pre-order, just in case you do not have close a Smyth shop.

Agreed. It both looks AND runs pretty great on even a base PS4, particularly compared to the original. The development team did a great job. My problem is more with Sony's shift away from base PS4 owners. Starting to feel like a 2 tier system state.

I sat on it for 15 minutes and it's doing the same for me now
How can you be out of stock of pre-orders?
Booo, 200 miles for the nearest store with stock. ahh well
280 Miles for nearest store, figures... people round here fight for any form of a discount. Should see them when Tesco restocks the 'clearance' shelf, it's like the black Friday sales.

Sadly it is the current state of affairs in this generation of console gaming where they're trying to get people on to the 4k bandwagon...but Sony and MS know that there arent alot of people who own a 4k tv, like myself, hence why they're still looking after us (quite alot) base console owners...

Bloody hell mate what did you expect, for all games to perform the same on both consoles? I'm sure Sony are such an awful company for fully utilising the power of their console.
Nearly every store has gone OOS with this game's preorder

Totally agree. I would be seriously annoyed if there was no difference on my upgraded console over the base PS4 I've had since day one, considering that's what the upgrade was selling. Still getting the game so I don't see the problem. If you can't afford or don't want to upgrade then be happy with what you've got and ignore others, better than a whole new generation... The existence of the Pro doesn't make the standard worse. People forget that the PS4 is over 4 years old!

They hold orders for 2 days according to their site, not much help now though as most stores have no stock!
weird how only some stores are available for this?

It was all stores when posted. They're slowly (or rapidly) slipping away. IIRC the price can also be reserved in-store
