Ciri and Geralt, in different ways, are just as strong as each other. They should be able to share a breadth of reactions — violent or not — in order to enhance the playing experience and give both characters their due.
The Witcher 3 is a huge game, both in terms of landmass and content, and it takes advantage of this in order to keep side quests and combat fresh throughout the experience. The main story leaves much to be desired, however.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a huge game, and rushing through it to get out a review to you would make it a completely different experience for me than it likely will be for you.
