Great RPG, hours and hours of funBbozmen | June 17, 2013 | See all Bbozmen's reviews »
The Witcher 2 is en enormous game with hours of gameplay. There are multiple choices you can make in the game which makes sure you'll have a new experience everytime. I've read that there are 21 DIFFERENT endings so this game has a huge replayability. The visuals of this game are immense. My computer has a hard time keeping up with the visuals (GPU: AMD HD6870 CPU: AMD Phenom X4 955BE) but even on medium/high it's just beautiful. This game has a good story, which is easy to follow. Lots of quests to complete and a huge area to play in. The only downside of this game in my opinion is that you don't have free roam. You can't go back to the first phase of the game when you enter phase one. BUT every phase has a giant map to play in so it does play like a free roam.

To be honest, I have never heard of The Witcher and its sequel until last year. Since I had a big interest in Action RPGs, I decided to pick this up to see what made this game so great.
First time playing the game, I noticed the graphics looked absolutely stunning. Textures look detailed, and the whole world just looks excellent. Everything is lovely at 1080p.
The combat is very solid. Although it's hard to master and requires skill, there's a tutorial for newcomers of the game. From sword fighting to magic spells, it fits really well for a game like this.
The story is pretty interesting. You play as Geralt of Rivia, one of the last remaining witchers. He welds two swords and magic abilities. You'll also meet other characters like Triss Merigold as the story unfolds.
Overall, everything is wonderful. Plenty of hours can be spent on The Witcher II. If you are a fan of action RPGs, I would recommend this game.
Enjoyed it, but not feeling the hypecevana | May 26, 2013 | See all cevana's reviews »
I really enjoyed Witcher 2. The art is gorgeous, the dialogue is pretty snappy, and it completely held my attention while I played it. Plus I have nothing but praise for CD Projekt as a company!
But it really am not feeling the levels of love it has received from most corners. In my experience, it is a pretty standard, if well-done, action RPG. Geralt is not such a subversive and revolutionary anti-hero in my opinion -- off the top of my head, even Final Fantasy VI had more equally morally ambiguous characters. Nor is his story on the par of something like Game of Thrones in its brutality and drama (a comparison I have heard made). It's more along the lines of standard Dungeons and Dragons fare.
The gameplay flows well (you really feel like you're swinging those twin blades) and can be refreshingly unforgiving. But even with all your magic tricks, the core mechanics really boil down to 'dodge>attack>dodge>attack' etc.
There's nothing so wrong with Witcher 2 that I would suggest you avoid it. But neither is there anything so new, or amazingly well done it it that I would recommend it above any other well-made action RPG.
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.
