Takes time to master but will pay off for fans of fantasy story RPGs

Summary: Engrossing fantasy story. Quite complex and game of thrones esque. Complex combat and inventory control system that takes a fair amount of time to master(closest similar system would be Skyrim).
Looking forward to the 3rd game after playing this!

Summary: Fun game, great storyline, now I'm ready for the third game to release! Combat takes awhile to master but it becomes fluid once you pass the learning curve. Graphics and storyline are not skimped on. Great voice acting as well. This was my first experience with the series and I ordered the 3rd game because I liked this one so much.

Summary: Witcher 2 has a great cast of characters and a rather good story. I won't spoil anything, but most players will enjoy the game. Locations are beautiful, interactive, and players that explore will be rewarded. The quests play out with a many solutions to most problems, similar to the Fallout series, there's usually more than 1 way to solve a quest.
Summary: I enjoyed this game, I loved the setting, the world was rich and vast, and the lore was entertaining. I loved the varied and vast monsters, and the combat system. It took some getting used to, but in the end it was a very satisfying experience when you triumphed over some of the more challenging monsters. The thing I did not like about this game was the non customized class and appearance, and the rater linear approach of game play.
Summary: I heard a lot of good things about the Witcher 2 but was not able to try it out since I lacked a pc for gaming. After the Enhanced version came out on the Xbox 360 was available I was finally able to play through it. Personally I think a lot of the praise for it is pretty well deserved. The game play was very challenging, but satisfying. The story is good with great lore and characters to back it up. The visuals were beautiful, making the fantasy world very immersing.
Summary: To start off, I enjoyed this game, but it CAN be frustrating, due to the style of combat. Which I will explain right now, since most people only read the first few sentences of a review. The combat system is very lackadaisical to the point where sometimes you rage because you can't hit more then one person at a time unless by some miracle they are standing right next to each other, (which makes the game somewhat difficult).
Summary: 'Witcher 2' is at once an easy and difficult recommendation. CD Projekt RED's port of their celebrated PC game carries everything I want in an RPG: a complex narrative, terrific voice-acting, great combat, a world I want to get lost in and some of the best graphics I've seen on the XBOX 360. Unfortunately it also requires you to invest a lot of your time and patience to get the most out of it and there are moments where some may feel that price is a bit steep.
Summary: Not the best fighting system & a tad obtuse & user unfriendly & steep learning but if you get past that or are one of these godlike pc players I keep hearing about, you'll find some of the best dialogue & character interaction I've seen in a game. I hesitate to say mature but very adult & natural. Def worth a play.
