Summary: I have only played a little bit of the game as I am currently doing others. After the install, it is very big, I needed to download two more gigantic files with updates and extended play features. It was a little complicated getting to the right download location as it is in multiple languages and if you click the wrong link it is easy to get lost.
Summary: In the game you are a human, Geralt, who was mutated by sorcerers to be a Paladin fighting monsters of all sorts - human, animal and supernatural, with swords and magic in the era of Knights. It begins with the hero having suffered an almost fatal wound which leaves him with amnesia. He is brought back to health by a small band of Witchers and then their castle is attacked by a group called Salamandra.
Summary: The Witcher is a very fun role playing game where you play a monster slayer using alchemy & various weapons. It is quite challenging even when set to easy mode. The only thing that I didn't like about it is the way you navigate your character and the confusing camera angels. That really got on my nerves when trying to fight battles. It would have been a whole lot better to make it a first person view from the character's eyes rather than an over the shouler view.
Summary: The original game (or so-called non-enhanced version) does have multiple bugs in it that were addressed by patches, and works just fine. The latest patch on the Atari site is 1.4 - which takes the normal, older retail version and makes it into the full retail Enhanced Edition. The difference in graphics, game play, etc, are astounding. But...
Summary: The Witcher is a hybrid RPG based on the book series by Andrzej Sapkowski. It uses the Aurora engine from the Neverwinter Nights game. With 3 different POV this game has a perspective for everyone. It seems to be a fairly standard game with a few interesting twists. The player has the choice of choosing 3 different combat styles- each of which is suitable for different types of combat.
Summary: Given that this is a game from a little-known developer in Eastern Europe, I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by "the Witcher." It doesn't quite reach the heights of classics such as Morrowind or Baldur's Gate 2, but it is good roleplaying fun nonetheless. Gameplay: This is a single-player RPG, tailored to the PC. It's set in a medieval-inspired world that has its share of intrigue, moral dilemmas, and other troubles.
Summary: The Witcher is an enjoyable RPG reminiscent of Neverwinter Nights. The storyline is engaging without being overdone with just enough swearing and sex to keep you interested. The load times are a bit slow, so have a sandwich or a spot of tea ready as there will be time for crumpets. If you enjoyed the Neverwinter franchise, then The Witcher will keep you attached to your computer as any good RPG should.
Summary: This is the most awaited fantasy cRPG in the past 2 years. For most part, IT DELIVERS! THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL cRPG GAMES I HAVE EVER PLAYED! The environments are detailed, realistic, and can be experienced from up close. Grass, flowers and tree branches moved in both FABLE and TITAN QUEST as well; these, however, seem so true I caught myself reaching for my...antihistamines!
Summary: **UPDATE** For PC users, the fine makers of this game have released the 1.2 patch which DRAMATICALLY improves load times (by about 1/2 according to my tests) Now I am going to be yearning for the next release!! (PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE) :) I accidentally discovered this game (that's the way I usually find a new game) through an Amazon "suggestion". My life will never be the same now.
Summary: Let's get the bad stuff out of the way first.... The engine: The one big flaw is the load/save times. Everybody hates it and everybody should. The game is easily worth the annoyance that comes with this, but c'mon people...learn to optimize your code! By the end of the game I kept a magazine at my computer which allowed me to tolerate it better...I recommend you plan ahead and do the same. I also had about one crash/ 6 hours gameplay.
