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.
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.
Summary: I did a lot of research before I bought this version of the game. I was torn between this version and the Enhanced edition. You can download all of the patches to turn this into the enhanced edition. You can also un-censor the language and girl cards.
Pros: Nice graphics, even by todays standards. Runs seamlessly on my PC (4870x2 and Core i7 920). Great dialog, with full voice from EVERY NPC. Lots of hours of gameplay here. It's given a "mature" rating for a reason, especially if you uncensor it, keep it away from youngsters.
Cons: Official patch site is written entirely in Polish. Just click the big bright yellow button (polish for download) Simple battle system (i'm still having fun) Can't do everything in one play through, chose your path for different outcomes.
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.
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.
Summary: I rarely replay games (I think Oblivion was the only other) but so enjoyed The Witcher that I've played it four times and plan on playing the enhanced version, too. Really, my only complaints relate to inventory handling, which I hear is to be improved in the enhanced version.
Solid RPG with an excellent plot and some of the best character development around

Summary: What puts the Witcher head and shoulders above most RPGs is the story. The central character, Geralt of Rivia, who originated in a series of short stories and novels, contrasts sharply with the "Nameless heroes" of the Gothic and Oblivion series.
great game. wish i had a better video card though.

Summary: All in all this is a great RPG with a few minor issues. The playability really isn't affected by the voice acting or the animation so it doesn't take away from the game to much. And as long as you have a decent PC you should be able to run this thing.
Pros: This game is a very good role player, it incorporates elements from many of the other great RPGs out there. The visuals are nice and the alchemy system is pretty cool. I also like the style based fighting system. The ability to upgrade combos and things for each style also is a plus.
Cons: One of the things that threw me off on this game from the moment I started the regular game play was the voice acting, it left quite a bit to be desired on many occasions, and the animation in the cut scenes. I know you can't make each character do something different but at least reflect what th...
