The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: I'm probably one of the few PC gamers that didn't instantly fall in love with The Witcher when it came out. From the story to the characters to the combat, it was all just "okay". Even the much-touted "Enhanced Edition" barely made much of a difference, as far as I could tell.

  • Conclusion: You may have seen the score already. It’s a 9.0, which puts The Witcher 2 in classic must-buy territory, but I’ll admit that it’s slightly grudgingly so. I’ve never come across a game that I wanted to berate as much as sing its praises.

  • Excerpt: What level are you? It's a question that is brought up often among my friends.

  • Conclusion: After being disappointed with Mass Effect 3's lack of depth, Geralt's adventures presented a unique twist on the classic RPG with a fully realized world that's just begging to be explored. If you have a little bit of patience and give this game the time and effort it deserves you won't regret it.

The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition PC Review

IGN
20 April 2012
  • Excerpt: The Witcher 2 is not a normal video game, and it's not a normal fantasy. It subverts the old high-fantasy stereotypes even as it employs them. The elves that you'll meet in Temeria aren't charming, ethereal forest-dwellers, they're guerrilla insurgents raining death on humans from the trees.
