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.

  • 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.

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.

The Witcher (PC)

18 May 2008
  • Excerpt: Imagine if you will the universe of J.R.R. Tolkien. You have your standard free peoples of Elves, Dwarves, and men who live in relative harmony. Throw that vision away, as The Witcher’s universe is nothing like that.
  • Pros: Amazing graphics and game play.
  • Cons: Unstable without patches; choppy dialogue.

25 December 2007
  • Excerpt: This Role Playing Game does not include hobbits! As most of you know by now, The Witcher is based on a series of short novels by Polish fantasy writer Andrey Sapkovsky. A somewhat obscure author in the West, his work has received high praise within Poland.
  • Pros: Amazing combat, solid talent structure, brilliant sound, long gameplay, no hobbits!
  • Cons: A few technical issues, NPC dialogues could be more polished

RPGs Grow Up

GIN
19 December 2007
  • Excerpt: Forget everything you know about RPGs when you play The Witcher. Whereas some games offer up a moral dilemma or two, The Witcher might as well be some type of grand social experiment where players have to deal with racism, poverty and even sexual relations.

3 December 2007
  • Excerpt: In some ways, it’s sad to see a game like The Witcher get released during the busy holiday season. Not because it’s a bad game. The Witcher is a fabulous RPG experience. No. It’s sad because a game like this is bound to be overshadowed by the vast number of high profile releases all clumped into a...
