Geralt of Rivia. The definition of bad@$$.
19 March 2014
Summary: I am ashamed to admit.. I had heard very little of the Witcher until the Witcher 3 trailers popped up. I owned the first two, having bought them on a sale, but I hadn't really played them. Watching Geralt slaughter the three men that were torturing the girl in the trailer was just about the coolest thing I had ever seen, so I had to get into the game. I gave played through the first one and am partially through the second one, and The Witcher is now in my top ten games.
Summary: Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this game. The story line is deep and complex, with substantive consequences for the player's actions, and with no clear good or evil path. The world is big, and while you can't roam completely freely, there's plenty to explore. Tons of side quests are available, and if you put the time in to do them, it can really help grow the character, and earn gold as well. The visuals are good, if not extraordinary.
Summary: Assessment of three personal favorite swordsman role-playing games -- The Witcher Enhanced (TWE), Dragon Age: Origins (DAO), The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (ESV). Personal recommendation: If you have $25 to spend, buy both TWE and DAO. Wait for ESV to drop in price later. TWE and DAO together combined provide more gameplay fun than ESV alone. Here is why.... TWE's main strength is its overall visual quality. DAO's main strength is emotional content.
Summary: I jumped on the Witcher bandwagon in Iraq. While I could get electric power, Internet connections were only a dream. The Witcher ended up being one of the best games that I had ever played. The plot is very original, and the levels of play are excellent. The AI seemed to vary significantly with the level of difficulty that you assigned to the game. The adult themes were truly adult themes. There were complex moral decisions that actually affected the later game play.
Summary: "The End of The World is Nigh! The likes of you is proof enough. Nothing personal." - Grandma I have been playing RPGs since the pre-Baldur's Gate days and I think The Witcher is one of the best to date. It is a story-driven RPG based on an excellent series of Polish fantasy novels. In the game you play the protagonist of the books - Geralt, The Witcher.
Summary: If I had to summarize my experience with The Witcher Enhanced, it's like a Bioware rpg. But the fact that a small and upcoming developer made an RPG experience on par with one of the RPG pillars should speak volumes in itself. This Polish dark fantasy is refreshing with its engaging and choice driven story, nuances in game mechanics, and unique identity.
Summary: The best single player RPG I have played in a long time. This game proves that the single player RPG is still alive and strong on the PC. Great storyline and fighting mechanics. Great game and a must buy for any RPG lover out there.
Summary: The Witcher is a well supported story focused RPG. the original game has been updated and supported in ways that far exceed expectations for game companies these days. Even years after the games release, people who are just now buying can be secure in the knowledge that this product is still supported by the company that produced it.
Need to Counter Kenny's mistake... game installs fine, if you read the directions

Summary: *UPDATED* Don't listen to Kenny. The download window has a handy link to your games page, where you'll find the CD key ONCE THE GAME IS DOWNLOADED. Because it's on-line, it's even easier: You can paste the parts of the key to the key-entry screen! This is v. 1.5, and I'm running on Windows 7 64, and the only problems I had were during the opening splash screens: for some reason, ctrl-alt-del-ing made the splash screens run (they would be super-slow, otherwise...
