Amazing aesthetic and story, subpar control schemesycomantis1991 | May 14, 2015 | See all sycomantis1991's reviews »
I love everything about The Witcher. The environments are gorgeous and they're set within a world with a rich and lore, as well as being the backdrop for a deep, complex, and wholly intriguing plot. The character designs are great and quite realistic, the towns and forests alike are lively and have amazing personality, you rarely feel like you've been the same place twice. The whole being a monster hunter with inhuman abilities and magic is awesome, and the whole choices-that-affect-your-outcome thing is glorious. While I love everything The Witcher presents, I think it falls short in one key area: controls. The controls aren't horrible, but they are extremely clunky. The dodging ins't fluid, the riposte system seems rather finicky, the swordplay is decent, but the magic system is in desperate need of re-tooling in The Witcher 3. It's nearly impossible to get the spells or potions you want unless you've memorized where each is and what it does before you even open the menu, and it only slows down combat when you're using it. So you either have to have a photographic memory from hour one, or be lucky enoug to have the magic you need already equipped and the potion already handy, or be good enough to counter that, and the game isn't exactly easy. Overall, it's an experience well worth your time, even if you have the issues with combat that I did. Especially since I've seen it as low as $2.49 quite often lately, likely in anticipation of the third game. The first game often sells for under 2 bucks, and it has a lot of the advantages Witcher 2 does, with simpler but less exciting combat, and a slower pace overall, and a lot of MMO-style questing.

If you enjoy fantasy (especially the darker kind in the style of George R.R. Martin), the Witcher 2 is a must play. The world of the Witcher games is absolutely brilliant and surprisingly realistic. The interactions between characters and factions are laced with politics, backstabbings, racism, classism and a whole slew of modern day problems. The player is often forced to make decisions, however unlike the comparable Bioware games where every decision is either a clear-cut good vs. evil one, decisions in the Witcher 2 often come down to choosing the lesser evil and all possible outcomes being quite crappy. You will often have to think very carefully and consequences are not immediate as sometimes it takes hourse of gameplay for the impact of each decision to become apparent. Getting into the story for a first-timer will be difficult. I would highly recommend reading up on the first Witcher game and the Witcher books (originally a very popular Polish series by Andzrej Sapkowski) to fully understand what is going in the game. Characters and in-game documents will often make references to events and places that were in the books so having some background knowledge is key to fully enjoying the game. This game is a must-buy for anyone that enjoys Game of Thrones and/or RPG's in general. Very few games do story telling this well and with such impact. P.S. I would highly recommend reading the Witcher books as they are probably one of the best and deepest fantasy series every published. It is easily on par with The Song of Ice and Fire series.

If you like a storyfocused RPG with a okay-ish action oriented combat with a great story and are looking for many decisions with consequences, this is the right game for you. Based on the amazing books from Andrzej Sapkowski this is one of the best RPGs of the last years. The graphics are amazing for a title from 2011 and are still holding up till today. When you can get over the high difficulty in this game you got an amazing game in which you can sink many hours into.
Geralt Is back ! Hide your Monsters !akassassinn1 | Nov. 18, 2014 | See all akassassinn1's reviews »
Geralt of Rivia , the monster hunter from The Witcher saga , written the Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski , the second installment of the Action thriller RPG is here, with a new engine and new gameplay mechanics and add a bigger touch to the Hardcore experience of the first game. CD Projekt's game is definitely one of the Finest RPGs out there , you're gonna be able to follow story just fine but people who haven't read the books will have some things fly over their heads , if you have played the first game you can import the save game from your experience and will get some references to your old encounters, heavy politics Dark humor define the plot and you can't help but to fall in love with it , your choices do matter as the events in the second and third chapter will change drastically depending on what you decided in the first chapter , forcing you to play the game multiple times if you want to experience everything it has to offer. combat system is a hit and doge and involves a combination of Signs that are the witcher's special magical powers. crafting armor , weapons, items potions, traps and bombs is present and diverse which gives you an advantage in a fight you lost 5 time before. The graphics in this game is bleeding edge and I suggest you check the minimum system requirements before buying this baby as it will bleed your eyes with it's beauty! it's simply the best looking RPG I've ever played.

This game is awesome for RPG lovers, the backstory, the characters and the combat all come together in a rewarding dynamic experience, there are so many choices and side quests to fulfill nearly any gamers desire. Overall I enjoyed this game more than any other modern RPG including Skyrim and would recommend it to anyone.
