Trained from early childhood and mutated to have superhuman skills, strength, and reflexes, witchers are a socially ostracized counterbalance to the monster-infested world in which they live.

Ridiculous price for so much goodness!!
I'm tempted!
Should I have persevered with this? I got bored after an hour or so but this was the only game of mine that didn't get stolen when my house was burgled so maybe I should have taken it as a sign to play it. I love Skyrim and other adventure games.

The path this game takes you on is nothing like I've seen before. I had my doubts about this game until I played and it truly is probably one of the best games ever created. By the way sorry to hear about the burglary.

Maybe I'll give it another go then! It just seemed quite a lot to learn and I've never played anything else in the series so I felt a bit out of the 'zone'

Definitely not. I felt the same way about Skyrim as I'm playing it now. I knew nothing about the world or where I was but now I'm just hooked on it. It's the same with Witcher 3.

Definitely give it another go, mate. The world of the Witcher is super rich, so yes it can seem a little overwhelming with the political backdrop this game takes place in, but if you ignore all of that for now and just focus on Geralt's personal journey to find his missing adopted daughter then you'll learn to enjoy it. The political stuff will make more sense the more you play.
14 pounds on xbox live at the moment too
This is on sale for this price so often I'm starting to no longer see it as a deal. It's not a bad price but don't jump on it if you're unsure. It'll be on sale again next week.
There is so much content in this game that I'm pretty sure it could last you till the PS5 comes out.

It took me a long time to like this game too. In fact it probably took near enough 30 hours before it finally twigged.

The problem with it, at least initially, is there are so many overwhelming variables. Weapons, magic, armour, crossbows, potions, Gwent, levelling up, etc. The truth is that most of that can be ignored until you're ready to start trying them. Just go out, pick a quest that's at a similar level to your current level and have a bash at it.

When picking up weapons just swap what you're currently using if it's more powerful. Armour, pick one of light medium or heavy and swap that when you find something stronger (I've never worn anything other than light armour). I've never used a crossbow for anything other than that first Griffin fight. Magic just use Igni initially to give you a slight advantage in fights, eventually you'll try other spells. Learning how to block in a fight is more important initially that what potions to use.

When levelling up go initially for the extra energy stuff, then all the light movesets first (never bothered with heavy as hardly ever use it). It'll take ages to get to the more advanced stuff so just making fighting a bit easier for yourself first.

Eventually you'll just start investigating the other stuff to see what it does and before you know it you're defeating enemies several levels above you, and enjoying it in the process. Playing Witcher 3 is a long-term commitment, but it's worth it for an extraordinary game.

(And Gewnt becomes super addictive once you figure it out).

Does combat get better? Seems pretty pants compared to something like Shadow of Mordor, basically keep bashing X until the thing you're attacking dies.

The combat is strange in that initially it does feel like a button masher - kinda like a Souls game where you don't have to bother defending. When you fight enemies who are a higher level than yourself though you don't stand a chance button mashing - you have to start using the dodge and parry. Parrying seems really clunky at first but to get used to it I recommend going into the bare knuckle boxing matches that will be a quest at some point. As you progress through that even the dodge doesn't really work with the higher skilled opponents so you have to learn how to parry and that helps enormously to get the timings correct when in a sword fight. Once you get used to using it combat becomes quite elegant.

Plus the first two difficulty levels (Just the Story! and Story and Sword!) let you get away with button mashing for the most part. Increase that to Blood and Broken Bones! and you have no option but to learn how parry and dodge.
