    "This game needs no introduction and is considered as one of the best single player games of all time. It has everything, frenetic action, a large open-world, great story and characters, and humor to round it all out. Just go play it if you haven't already."

    "The conclusion to the long-running Witcher series goes out with a bang. The combat is excellent, the RPG mechanics are solid, and there is a vast open-world to explore and discover. It falls prey to the side quest pitfalls like many others but it does not detract from the overall amazing single player game experience that you will get."

    "It is hard to describe this game properly. At first, it started out as a fast-paced action game in the same vein as bayonetta or devil may cry but then, it shifts to platforming and then, a shooter. It tries to incorporate a lot of gameplay elements into a cohesive experience and it mostly succeeds."

    "The latest entry by From Software brings with it a stylish stealth-action adventure game that carries over the company's signature difficulty curve but is a bit more forgiving of newcomers. This has been a blast from start to finish and is one of the best single player games you can try right now."

    "The goal here was obviously not to make a direct sequel but rather refine what was already there. The end result is a good stealth/sandbox single player game that you'll have some fun with. It also includes the 2016 reboot of the franchise which is a nice touch."

    "If you've been itching to get your hands on a great metroidvania-style game for a while now, then, you should definitely check this game out. It has tons of loot to collect and enemies to slay. The art style is lovingly retro with fast-paced gameplay and punishing difficulty that is rewarding to overcome."
