Played it, loved it. The game does have a very slow start though, and
it was around the "Family Matters" questline that it really 'clicked'
for me. And I was never really happy with the combat system (to be
fair, I understand that later patches improved the combat somewhat but
I finished the game before those were released). I am a big fan of
low-fantasy, and wandering the gorgeous open world as an itinerant
adventurer was a great deal of fun.
Technically, I think I ended up on the "losing" track of the game by
the time I ended, although I disagree with how that came about (I'll
say no more about it though since I don't want to spoil the ending for
you). But since the core gameplay and writing was so strong I forgive
its mediocre ending.

I'm holding off on the (paid) DLC. My goal is to replay the first two
Witchers first before I give W3 another shot, by which time the DLC
should be available on the cheap ;-)
