  • Summary: I really wanted to like this game, I've given it a second chance and I've given it more time this time, but I just can't get into it. The graphics look great for a game that's nearly 7 years old, there's so much to do and the storyline looks great but unfortunately the mechanics of the game are so...

Just didn't get into it...

Destin, Amazon

  • Summary: I had high expectations coming into this game and I am sad to say I am a bit disappointed. I had heard many promising reviews from various sources touting it as an revolutionary RPG, but upon inspection that claim seems tenuous.

Great RPG with many techincal flaws.

M. Vargha, Amazon
25 June 2009
  • Summary: The Witcher suffers from many problems: high system requirements, long load times, a poor camera, an anemic skill system, a small and quickly cluttered inventory, a combat system that one either likes or hates (I fall into the hate camp), a lack of feeling character advancement, and the list goes...

Fun but...

Steven L. Johnson, Amazon
26 January 2009
  • Summary: Although generally fun the game is marred by serious camera issues and a frequent lack of response when commands to attack are given. Both problems cause frequent death. If you can get past those issues the story is great and overall the game is quite enjoyable.

If you're into redheads...

Aivas47a, Amazon

  • Summary: The premise is pretty sweet. Witch and monster hunter, cool. Swords, cool. White hair, facial scar, memory loss, multiple romances? *Snort.* Despite the almost entertainingly cliche main character, the game is overall pretty cool.

Not bad, Not good

Ian M., Newegg
29 January 2008
  • Summary: Overall the game wasn't bad, but as a person who loves a good story and a good system for creating and customizing a character, this game lacked. In the beginning, the system was new and inventive, the leveling seemed to hold opportunities to really customize...
  • Pros: The game has a good base for a story... a witcher that kills monsters and can use magic and alchemy. Every choice you make affects the game somehow which makes you think about every action taken.
  • Cons: The story line is ok. It begins to get repetitive and boring after awhile. The fighting system doesn't change or increase in difficulty... I had no problem killing everything within 5 seconds of beginning a battle. The weapon system is not set up very well; you have two main weapons (silver and s...

Exciting story that is painfully programmed

Ron Cole, Amazon
2 January 2008
  • Summary: The Witcher is an exciting RPG with an extremely interesting storyline. I mention this bit first because it is the game's biggest selling point... and because everything else in The Witcher is painfully flawed (even with the 1.2 patch installed).

Visually beautiful, technically bugged

Julia S., Amazon
14 December 2007
  • Summary: First with the bad stuff: I have a brand new computer which excedes the system requirements and run this game on Windows Vista. The game crashes constanly, so unless you guys don't save it every 5 minutes or so, you risk losing a lot of play time.
