Summary: This could be issues of a console port, but it was like it was trying to make me like it less the whole time: Story: The story is dense and complex, which I like. Much of the first act is spent working to understand the settings and characters, but the relationships slowly become more clear, especially in the second act.
Summary: My review is focused on what held this game back from being more than 3 stars As others have stated the graphics and story depth are every good. If you have read and love the Witcher novels then this would be a must play game. I have NOT read the books so I'm coming at this from a pure RPG gamer perspective.
Summary: I have played roughly 30 hours of this game so far, and there are some highlights. Tremendous animation, complex/interesting story, lots of places to go, lots of quests, amazing fight scenes, interesting and unique potions and powers, great x-rated visuals and banter, great characters, realistic voice acting, some creative additions like arm wresting and dice, very quick loading..
Summary: Ok this game is not a true open world play. The controller and game options are not clearly defined and are limited(no options to change buttons). The Dwarfs have horrible if not just very bad dialog (foul language you over look a few times but it gets old real fast. Think Jerico in FO3 ) If not for the dialog I would have give it 4 stars.
Summary: The Witcher 2 is a massive game. While it only contains 3 chapters to complete, the world is so full of lore that its overwhelming. I went through most of the game not knowing who was who or what the difference was between Redania and Kaedwen. It doesn't help that you never actually visit these places either.
Summary: This game had a lot of hype as being better then the bioware games such as Dragon Age and Mass Effect. After the disappointment of Dragon Age 2 I thought I would give it ago. It might be better than Dragon Age 2, however it is not in the same league as Dragon Age Origins or Baldurs Gate. It does some things better like being slightly more open with its maps. However the combat is boring hack and slash and generally feels very unpolished.
Summary: Bought this because of the top rating on Gamespot. Huge fan of Skyrim but still waiting for this to capture my imagination 2 levels in - not bad combat whilst I'm waiting but it's no sandbox RPG.
Summary: I initially picked up the Witcher 2 on the recommendation of quite a few game critics, hailing its excellent plot, adult (no, not in that way, although it does have its moments!) themes and intelligent crafting system. I'm not generally a huge fan of Western RPGs, but having enjoyed the excellent Skyrim, I wondered if maybe I needed to give the genre another chance. Now, truth be told, the Witcher 2 is not a bad game.
