Review of The Witcher: Monster Slayer on iOS — The game of augmented reality necessitates far too much time and money

The game’s mechanics most closely resembles Niantic’s 2017 release Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, which adds more RPG elements to the collection-based AR game. It’s also trying to hew closer to the main Witcher games with plenty of combat, narrative quests, and lots of gore and cursing. But while The Witcher: Monster Slayer could eventually grow into something enjoyable in its current state, it’s only worth playing if you really love the franchise and have a lot of time or money on your hands.

Pokémon Go was released by Niantic in 2016 and remains one of the most popular and lucrative mobile games, so it’s no surprise that other developers are looking to find a way to imitate its model. Developed by Spokko, a subsidiary of The Witcher developer CD Projekt, The Witcher: Monster Slayer could be a real contender. It immerses players in the world of the extremely popular game and Netflix series by letting them play one of the titular monster hunters and kill creatures as you walk around in real life.

The Witcher: Monster Slayer is set hundreds of years before the events of The Witcher 3, at a time when both Witchers and monsters were more common. You play a new Witcher setting out to earn a living by slaying dangerous creatures that spawn randomly on your map as you walk around. You soon encounter the traveling merchant Thorstein, who asks you for aid and winds up helping you by selling gear and giving you leads on the treasure to pursue.

While you choose your name and pick from one of six set appearances — three male and three female — your gruff personality is pretty clearly modeled after Geralt of Rivia, with the loquacious Thorstein serving as your foil in the same way as Dandelion, or Jaskier has he’s known in the Netflix show. The plot has some amusing surprises, but to proceed through it, you’ll need to do a fair bit of grinding for levels And gold or pay real money to earn XP and buy gear faster.
