Summary: Good game but their was one major thing that ruined it for me, the Witchers girlfriend. I don't know who decided her voice actor but by Talos her voice is so annoying, mainly because it just does not fit into the game at all, and it is just unbearable to listen to. The game itself is good but I hope you're good at sword fighting games as if you're planning on playing on normal, the difficulty for normal is actually brutally hard when you face your first main boss.
Summary: Well where do i start....i actually bought this game based on the reviews on this site,and for the life of me i cannot understand how anybody could give this game five stars,i am a big fan of RPG games and have spent many hundreds of hours happily immersed in graphically created worlds(mainly created by Bethesda)to know what i am talking about,there are some aspects of this game which were pretty good ...
Summary: About two thirds of the way through this game I thought "I've given this enough of a chance. It's just bad." The same thought had occurred to me several times earlier in the game, but I'd pressed on hoping things would get better. They didn't though. This has neither the free range of skyrim nor the well developed characters and wit of dragon age origins.
Nice visuals,just not feeling the pace of the gameplay

Summary: I wouldn't say the combat in this is awesome like certain reviews make out. Just doesn't feel very good and there's tons of talking and other things to bog you down between these encounters. It's not open-world per se either - there are side quests and places you dont necessarily have to go to, but if you enjoy Fallout/Skyrim or similar, this is likely to feel very channelled-in for you, as it does me.
Summary: This review is in light of all the praise the game got, the high expectations I had for a game and in particular, this quote from the NY times - "... redefines expectations for an entire genre." Let me tell you what the game doesn't do. First and foremost, the positives. The game is great to look at, the graphics are great and the few cutscenes in the game are enjoyable.
Summary: I had high hopes for this game. Maybe that's where I went wrong. The controls felt sluggish and labored. You might say ok so you're not used to the controls. I would agree but I thought that the tutorial portion of the game was really poor and after getting past it I felt that I hadn't really learnt a lot. Don't bother with this game, just play Dark Souls instead.
Summary: I don't really know anything about this game, since I never played the previous game. However I only played this game for maybe a day or two, and I didn't really like it. The start of the game was great, and I liked it, but after the prologue, it just started to drag on, and I found it really boring, and frustrating to even complete at least one quest. I much prefer Skyrim, to this game.
Summary: I was really looking forward to sinking my teeth in to The Witcher 2 : Assassins of Kings. Having recently played through (and loved) both The Elder Scrolls V : Skyrim and Mass Effect 3, i was looking forward to playing another ''epic adventure'' type game. What a let down. Yeah, the graphics are great (mostly) fantastic, character models and animations are great and the lighting effects in particular are done really well.
Summary: The Witcher 2 represents perhaps the most disappointing of the highly vaunted releases of 2012 (my previous great disappointment was L.A. Noire which was heralded with similar amounts of critical - and I felt overblown - praise) to the extent that I am again seriously wondering whether the game I'm playing is the same game that has garnered so many glittering reviews.
