Summary: Originally, I was getting an error that said that I needed to insert the original disk. I was about to return the game when I found this website: http://witcher.wikia.com/wiki/1.5_patch In-case the link gets removed, head to the witcher wikia and get the 1.5 patch. The issue stems from TAGES. I followed the directions on the wiki page and I was able to run the game.
Summary: It's a fun game a so far, pretty stable (only crashed once and I've probably played well over thirty hours). The graphics are not cutting-edge, but good. It took me a little while to warm up to the game, but I ended up really liking it. Some people complain the combat it too simple. I personally can't handle having to press complex combinations to get a "special" combat attack. It works for me.
Pros: Awesome game. Lot's of fun. Great combat system. Excellent voice acting. Decent dialog. Enjoyable characters
Cons: Older graphics (but still good, not supurb), some of the character action during dialog is rather "odd".
Summary: (You'll notice I've given the same review to both the witcher enhanced edition and the "normal" version of witcher - note that if you buy the normal version of witcher you can get patches for free from the game publisher's website that will upgrade it to enhanced edition for free.. note also that these upgrades and patches will work just fine even if you buy a used copy of the game... ) .. I had my doubts about this game at first ...
well worth trying and worth the game play will provide hours of fun.

Summary: Was it a very good RPG with nice stylised violence, characterisation and story? Absolutely Yes. Was it a tad too linear? Yes..unfortunately. It's easy to correct this ..I don't know why gaming companies don't address this problem and make a really good RPG a much better one. Was there a problem with too many NPC's looking like the rest? Yes, Can you say Clone Wars? Was there plenty of carnage and mayhem to go around? yes...oh yes!
Summary: There are few things more frustrating than playing a game on the cusp of greatness, and rarely have a I played a game as close to being great as The Witcher. This game is hugely ambitious, featuring an expansive story with multiple endings, a large cast of characters, varied locations, hundreds of quests - all wrapped in a detailed and lovingly crafted world that is a unique mix of sci-fi and fantasy.
Summary: Okay...."The Witcher" I waited and bought this thru my Steam account and I'm glad I did. I got a nice discounted price for buying it off the mainstream high buy price time. Which was and is always good. So...is this the long awaited PERFECT RPG I was hoping it would be for me in 2010 and 11? No. Why? Had some problems. Was it a very good RPG with nice stylised violence, characterization and story? Absolutely Yes. Was it a tad too linear? Yes..unfortunately.
