The Witcher

Fragland
7 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Some time ago it all sounded like “Overlord is one of the best Action-RPG’s ever”. Well, it seems like the lord of darkness has met his match! The Witcher, a game by Polish developer CDProjekt, is some kind of mix between Diablo and a bunch of new RPG elements.

9 December 2011
  • Excerpt: This is a great RPG once you get past the annoyance of having to download the patches needed to play it on win7. The game has excellent graphics, even on my laptop. Control can be a little confusing at first but once you get the hang of it, it gets easier. Not too bad for a German made game.

Snackbar Games
13 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Here is a game where you have to loot boxes of items right in front of vendors and they don’t care. A game where you’re obligated to hurry and catch a king’s assassin, yet you have the option to dally about and to do side quests, some of them extremely small in scale.
  • Pros: Gorgeous graphics, well-written dialogue, good voice-acting
  • Cons: Horrible difficulty options despite adjustability, lots of pointless and frustrating elements

A "Which Way" Book on Steroids

RPGamer
15 April 2010
  • Excerpt: On the PC, single player RPGs are becoming increasingly rare. Titles from larger companies seem to be relegated largely to remakes or ports of console games. Some smaller companies have stepped up to fill the gap, and while it would be easy for those companies to make subpar games given their small...

No Grids Allowed

RPGamer
15 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Valkyria Chronicles is the rare Japanese role-playing game that can't be explained through comparison. While it may be a strategy RPG at heart, the game plays nothing like, say, a Fire Emblem title; the gameplay here can truly be called innovative.

Chronicles of Originality

RPGamer
15 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Valkyria Chronicles didn't start off very well when Sega released it in North America back in November 2008. The game received positive support from the press, but it just wasn't flying off store shelves.

Valkyria Chronicles

Hooked Gamers
31 March 2009
  • Conclusion: A few years ago I had Sega dead in the water. In the past, they were way ahead of their time. Games released on the Saturn are now sought after as gems. Yet games such as Valkyria Chronicles make me believe in the talent of the developers working at Sega.

The Wargamer
30 October 2008
  • Excerpt: This time of year I naturally enjoy playing games that are a little darker and a more foreboding than the usual military or historical themed games I usually go for (although those include a lot of darkness of their own). For example, last fall I tried out Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth.
