Summary: Unfortunately I can not join the endless cheering for The Witcher 2 Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition. My expectations were high, but only met for the amazing story and the atmosphere. The game play though is only average if not worse. The difficulty levels vary too much from start to end, the inventory system is clumsy and the map/quest marker system is one of the worst I have ever experienced in the many RPGs I have played.
Summary: First of all, The Witcher 2 Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition is a good game. It's beautiful and the world is detailed. But all of this is ruined by the terrible controls. This is in the between land of a tactical turn based RPG and an action RPG. But while Dark Souls gives you fluid controls and movement, Witcher 2 stops you regularly to either block/parry, and the controls never feel natural while playing.
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.
Summary: Fantasy games are right up my street: Skyrim, Zelda, Final Fantasy, Grandia etc. I've also played a myriad of rubbish titles i.e. Summoner 2, Ark the Lad - I'm also not a fan of Demon's Souls. Firstly, the Witcher 2 has some cool ideas. It's definitely not as hard as people say. Once you get past the beginning and get a hang of the controls, it's pretty much smooth sailing. This isn't an open World game.
Summary: Okay, so I'm gonna say up front here that I am a HUGE Game of Thrones fan, and so everything about the Witcher 2 sounded right up my alley: An adult focused dark fantasy tale of politics and magic and monsters and all that good D&D crap that you could possibly want mixed with gameplay that is best described as a Dragon Age Origins take on exploration mixed with a Dragon Age 2 take on combat (imo, which I consider a good thing because I liked DA2. Suck it haters.)...
Summary: was ok wasnt as good as skyrim neither the graphics or gameplay in my opinion skyrim is more open you can go where you want. the story line in this is ok so far keeps you playing, combat is a bit over complicated
