    Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is an excellent combination of art, gameplay and story. A game that imbues care in each of its elements. Meve is the new awesome and badass character in The Witcher universe.

    Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is another massive achievement for CD Projekt Red. Based on the card game Gwent, the developer has managed to combine an astonishing open world, a great soundtrack and unique role playing and strategy elements into one great package - albeit one very different from what we are used to.

    We can finally say that Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales should be taken for what it is, a sort of full-bodied spin off of both series, The Witcher and Gwent himself.

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