Summary: Just started playing this game and enjoying it thoroughly. Defintely some glitches (movement, invisible walls) but certainly doesn't detract from my experience. The RPG elements are similar to Skyrim but I am enjoying the story in the Witcher just as much if not more. If you haven't played, I highly recommend it!
Summary: This game pretty good great combat system and graphics load times are rather slow between the zones but other than that it is a great game. It has won 4 awards also and I can see why definatly a game worth buying for a bargain.
Summary: The game is a great RPG, although it does have a large learning curve. Some people will be turned off by the large micromanagement system of items but the story and gameplay are all top notch. I highly recommend this game.
Excerpt: Every once in awhile a game comes along that challenges what you know about gaming. This can be on any front – storyline, gameplay, presentation, or any combination of the three – and it leaves such a lasting impression that you can easily see yourself playing it again a decade down the road, long after homogenized imitators on newer, faster, and shinier consoles take over the spotlight.
Excerpt: Their was a team at SEGA that made an RPG for the Dreamcast called Skies of Arcadia. It is loved by many, myself included. Skies of Arcadia was ported to the GameCube under the name Skies of Arcadia Legends. This only increased its popularity. Now, the creative minds behind that masterpiece have done it again with Valkyria Chronicles.
Summary: I am very much enjoying Witcher, I have not finished the game yet but I find it very intriguing and enjoyable to play. It has tons of quests and interactive characters to deal with, the leveling up system took a bit to understand but make your character so much more tweakable to your own play style. You have potions, swords, spells and your own wit to get you through the challenges. Its very much worth playing.
Summary: i've played alot of RPG's and this is no doubt the BEST!!! besides winning over 100 awards for best rpg and selling over 100 million copies worldwide, being a pc game only.... it is extremely fun! and really addicting! story: the story is so good it could be made into a movie.... there is five side stories corresponding with the main story and each side story is unique and very interesting.
Summary: A very well designed and smartly written RPG. You can tell that the developer really cares about making this product the best that it can be. Definitely make sure to download the updates from the developer's website as they not only fix initial issues, but also add additional content.
Summary: I bought this for my wife, who is really into these sorts of games. She has been doing games on PCs for over 20 years, and I can tell you straight up, this one was her favorite. Looking at the nimber of old game boxes in out computer room, I'd estimate she's done about 100 RPG/Adventure games. I watched her and I have to say the dialog is impressive, the graphics absolutley stunning, and the story and challenges are compelling.
Summary: I grew up before the internet was a social meeting place, in a time when you had to actually type in what direction to move in a game. I was frustrated with the mechanics of how those games played, but loved how they made you think. The Witcher brings back the feel of those games without the interface problems.
