  • Conclusion: The Witcher 2 is a rare kind of game. In a sea of friendly, focus-tested titles from big publishers, it operates without much compromise. While that lack of compromise or looking back causes a fair amount of frustration and hassle throughout The Witcher 2's 30 hours-or-so campaign, it's impossible...

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Review

8 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Visually it is just a stunning game, while no where near as crisp and clean as the PC version, almost the whole game looks great, faces are quite expressive and do a good job conveying the emotions of the moment.

  • Conclusion: Despite these gripes with the system, it still feels good to control and like you’re a smart person for using it well. You can often fail a mission and carry on, knowing that you’ve affected the story because of it, rather than only having one completion condition.

Killing Kings and Witching Women

  • Excerpt: There is often talk about how video games need to mature, and there is some truth to that, especially in RPGs. Very often games come down to saving the world from an ancient evil or challenging the leader of an evil empire. Characters are often shallow, with little motivation for what they do.

Review: The Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition

New Gamer Nation
3 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Overall, The Witcher 2 is a game that is more than simply adult – it is a visceral, mature experience. This is a good thing for both for the genre and the game industry as a whole.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

Total Xbox
12 April 2012
  • Excerpt: At a glance, Geralt doesn’t look like much of an action-RPG hero. With his white mane, leather pants, and grizzled scowl, you could mistake Witcher 2 ’s main character for an aging renaissance-faire enthusiast.
  • Pros: + Complicated but engaging tale shaped by your choices., + Fun combat with intuitive controls; lots of customization options; challenging foes.
  • Cons: ? Why are we limited to 12 save slots?

22 May 2012
  • Conclusion: After a good dozen or so hours of play, we were reaching for the Gold button that rewards games of the highest accolade. Unfortunately, after further play when the initial shock of the new (or, at least, the highly polished) had worn off, came minor issue after minor issue.

  • Summary: Lo avevamo lasciato alla corte di Re Foltest , il Gran Maestro sconfitto e la corona di Temeria salva da un misterioso sicario. Dei propri ricordi, ancora nemmeno l’ombra… Con una premessa del genere, le vicende dello strigo Geralt di Rivia non potevano certamente prendere una piega pacifica, e lo...
  • Pros: Scelte di gioco con conseguenze reali e divergenti sulla storia, Trama coinvolgente, Livello di sfida elevato ma non frustrante, Atmosfera immersiva ed altissimo livello di attenzione ai dettagli.
  • Cons: Eccessivo backtracking, senza sistemi di spostamento veloce, Minimappa indecifrabile e spesso inutile durante le quest, Turpiloquio massiccio e fine a sé stesso

  • Conclusion: 17 /20 The Witcher 2 fera fuir les fans de mondes ouverts, mais il faut reconnaître qu'il convaincra tout ceux qui sont prêts à accepter un certain dirigisme au profit d'une histoire passionnante et écrite avec soin.
  • Pros: Trame principale captivante, Pas manichéen pour un sou, Quêtes secondaires bien écrites, Des personnages développés, Les combats, Un véritable portage, Un plaisir pour les yeux, Techniquement solide, Géralt de Riv, Les dialogues, Les choix et leurs influences, La rejouabilité, Le con...
  • Cons: Assez dirigiste, Peu d’environnements, Pas contre plus de quêtes annexes, Bestiaire un peu décevant, Arsenal limité, Le loot contraignant, Difficulté un peu mal gérée, Clipping assez présent
