Summary: Very early in my play-through, I was unsure of whether or not I would be able to handle Witcher 2. I had never heard of the series until the Enhanced Edition appeared on my 360 dashboard at a discounted price. I was intrigued by what looked like a Fable style of game in a mature fantasy setting. But as the game used a clever training mechanic to help me choose my difficulty, I felt overwhelmed and uncomfortable.
Summary: Fun game. Interesting storyline, compelling characters, and, for the most part, a fluid and intuitive feel. Worth playing. Not enough replay value for me to try the different paths, though, but I never do that. The game is VASTLY different with the different routes, however.
Summary: this game is very involved and i have not played it much. in fact, to understand the storyline better, i bought the first witcher. it, too, is so involved that i have not played it much either. if you have the time, the games are beautiful and refreshing in terms of choices you make. they are based on a series of polish books, and the games are interesting enough to make me want to stop playing and read the books before returning to the game.
Summary: The game is simply phenomenal and the extra items included in the package made me feel truly compensated for the price I paid. -Geralt's head sculpture is made from clay (or whatever the same conventional material used statue is), not plastic. -The artwork was an exceptional ensemble of imagery which emphasized how much effort was pit into developing the game. I haven't checked the other stuff out, since there was so many!
Summary: Very good game. There's a lot to enjoy in this game. When ya buy it you will like it at the very least, the game play is story line driven, places to go are some what limited by this. But if you enjoy these types of games you will like this.
Summary: As a veteran of the original Witcher, I was thrilled to learn that there would be a sequel, but as I knew from past experience, there was likely to be an updated version with significant bug fixes and DLC. I held off buying the game until the Enhanced Edition was released, so I can't comment on the differences, but The Witcher 2 is an incredible solo RPG and follows up - and improves upon - the original better than most sequels ever do.
