FASCINATED , DEEP AND WITHOUT TABUicnivadodranoel | Feb. 17, 2014 | See all icnivadodranoel's reviews »
Cd projekt have made a rpg faithful to the atmosphere of the novels of Andrzej Sapkowski without follow step by step the facts narrated in the books. This makes the work less constrained and more natural, in fact the game has different rules from a narrative text .
The story is partly controlled by the player, his choices alter the continuation of story, in Mass Effect style . Good crafting system , excellent secondary quests, which I recommend to better understand the main plot .
This is not the usual rpg, Andrzej Sapkowski has created a plausible world with real problems that have been partially reproduced in the video game . Fun gameplay, with some action elements .
Some commands start with a slight lag at times, you get used to handle it anyway. Amazing graphics. Great audio, I am referring especially to the various characterizations in the voice tones of each character.
There are some quotes from other literary works: 2 of the "Lord of the Rings"
Developers have put passion and it shows, it is a title that absolutely can not miss , you'll love it .
Dark, Realistic RPG ExperienceWolfeClawz | Feb. 17, 2014 | See all WolfeClawz's reviews »
The Witcher 2 redefines the RPG experience, bringing a mature, realistic approach by throwing you into the mind of Geralt once again. This time, however, the game focuses more on combat, ensuring the player has more freedom through his/her movements and that there's more variety in terms of attacks. From my experience with the game, I can highly recommend it due to the stunning visuals and unique, mature gameplay and story.
Simply amazing, I can't beleive I never played it sooner.bullkrieg | Feb. 4, 2014 | See all bullkrieg's reviews »
This game is amazing.. one of the very few games I actually played all the way through and then immediately played through again just to see the other path. I'm still in shock I overlooked this game for so long, such a good well balanced game. Story is exciting, voice acting and characters are well done, doesn't feel like a fake ass bullshit story. Gameplay is fun, doesn't feel repetitive, there is good swordplay, blocking, magic, traps, thrown items, etc.. all combine to make a really deep battle system. Decent variety of monsters and human opponents, different tactics work well on different enemies. Really good levelling system that can completely change how combat is done. I can't believe I got this game for 5 bucks, after playing it I would have gladly paid much more. Highly recommend.
One of the best RPG:s ever madeTomtekopf | Dec. 20, 2013 | See all Tomtekopf's reviews »
This must be one of the best RPG:s I've ever played. The story draws you in right away, the graphics are amazing as well.
While the first Witcher game lacked in the gameplay department, this one excels, it's very hard in the beginning, so finally a game with a proper challenge! When you finally master the combat system you'll really feel like a kick-ass witcher.
The world is semi-open and the choices you make in the game will dictate how the story unfolds (for real this time, not like in mass effect). The second chapter will take place in different places based on your choices in the first chapter.
All side quests are great except for three or four which are just about learning about a certain creature and then eradicating it. For example, one quest in the game really gives the finger against the "sweet innocent girl trope".
The lore is great and the conflict between humans and elves and dwarfs is really interesting and far from stereotypical.
This is a must buy, do NOT miss out on this one!
The Witcher 2 - mature and dark RPGKordas | Dec. 14, 2013 | See all Kordas's reviews »
The Witcher 2 is a bit like an oldschool RPG. But it's also influenced by how games look nowaydays and it's safe to assume that CD Projekt RED are very good at storytelling! Based on fabulous series of books from Andrzej Sapkowski the game really nicely shows universe of the Witcher and the adventure is awesome. Your choices matter, it's almost mandatory to play the game twice - because second chapter is almost completely different if you choose the other option at the end of the first chapter.
Skill tree is well-thought and although I was kinda disappointed by Alchemy tree that in my opinion was quite a bit weaker than Magic and Swordsmanship trees, it's really worth spending some time to think on how you want to divide the skill points. Gameplay is very good, combat is really intuitive and you have a lot of options: fighting with sword, magic, setting traps, throwing daggers and a lot more. Especially on the higher difficulty level you must always equip yourself probably: make and drink some potions and equip yourself with the best gear you have. It's just very rich game; world is a lot smaller than let's say Skyrim but it's really a lot more entertaining. Every hardcore RPG fan should check it out!
