The RPG You're Looking ForNorriven | May 15, 2013 | See all Norriven's reviews »
Breathtaking graphics and a solid storyline make this one of the greatest RPGs of all time! Wonderful list of interesting characters that ranges from sexy sorceresses to powerful and mysterious assassins. A new leveling talent tree spices up the path you will take in developing a skilled witcher. Skilled voice acting that has passed from the first installment keeps you feeling familiar with the world's inhabitants. Sounds including environment, combat, and music make the game feel alive. Cinematics show the vast work and detail that has been put into building a universe. Large scale boss encounters give you a sample of the true strength that a witcher wields. Combat requires skill and intuition, along with a little patience. Difficulty is a bit unfair during the beginning chapters, but evens out gradually as you advance.
Great Improvement Over SequelGarryJones | May 15, 2013 | See all GarryJones's reviews »
After playing both of the Witcher games I am pleased to say that:
The graphics are superb! Extremely bright and vibrant colours really help to immerse myself within the game world.
The game-play and narrative is fantastic. Throughout the game you feel like you understand and can relate to the scenarios which enriches the game play experience.
The overall build for the PC version is solid and robust. It seems to work on all my systems (high and low end) which makes it a great flexible game as I can play it on the tube on my laptop!
I would recommend this game if you enjoyed the first one.
Perfection, that all RPGs should strive to and learn fromPilgrim6 | May 14, 2013 | See all Pilgrim6's reviews »
I, too, have never played Witcher 1. So it took me some time to actually get to play this game. Sweet mother I was surprised by the fact of what I've missed.
You play as Gerald of Rivia, professional beast hunter with magical abilities and a rather scary and mysterious past.
Where to start. The game is a magnificent combination of great combat (and rather hard that is - in a positive way), RPG elements and what's most entertaining for me - the way storyline works and unfolds. The story spreads like a tree and your decisions thus matter and have impact on the game and your progress through it. Another matter is that Witcher 2 is a feast for your eyes. The Red Engine really does it's work. The game looks simply terrific.
Falling in love with some of the protagonists, literally (Triss Merigold I am looking at you) and bromantically (Zoltan and Iorveth), isn't hard. Their characters are portrayed carefully and thus they are very believable and feel natural and unique.
The only thing I might complain is a fact that games difficulty fluctuates a lot during the game's length but I find it hard to even mention it.
Once I was done, my brain was yelling: "Give me another Witcher!" Wish that I will apparently be granted since Witcher 3 is coming! Can't wait to continue the story of Geralt of Rivia.
A testament that good devs/publishers still existInfiltrator | May 14, 2013 | See all Infiltrator's reviews »
Okay so take Dragon Age 2, then throw it out, burn it, and imagine from scratch a game that is not only good, but amazing, which is basically the complete polar opposite of Dragon Age 2. Then make that game real, and make it even BETTER, then lace it with gold and coat it in chocolate, and make it taste better than french vanilla ice cream with Reese's hard shell topping on it, but with like no calories and it actually makes you SLIMMER and gives you ABS. Now forget about all of that because no language has any words to describe how good The Witcher 2 is.

This is not a game where you have character creation,open world, good and bad choices, etc but what does it have? well every thing else. Witcher 2 story revolves around a predefined character Geralt having great story telling to meaning side quests. There are no moral choices here, you get to pick the sides based on your own opinion which drastically changes the ending. witcher 2 provides 16 endings featuring 4 major endings.
Apart from game CD project is the best company I know and our gaming industry needs these kind of developers.
