Blood and Wine ends the series on a so-so note. The story does not entice until later into the last hours and even then its narrative is still not that strong compared to the base game and Hearts of Stone. Characters such as Anna even with her strong performance is nowhere near as intriguing as say the Bloody Baron or Gaunter O’Dimm.

When the story came to its conclusion it’s a bit petty in the grand scheme of things. Worse, the side quests in Blood and Wine are boring to round it all out. It’s as if the stories have been told before and the game started to feel as though it has overstayed its welcome. Blood and Wine feels outdated and did nothing to change its mechanics for this last installment. The dye system and the new mutagen slots do nothing to affect the game in any meaningful way.

I was very happy with Geralt’s ending though. Was worth playing Blood and Wine for that at least.
