GAME DESCRIPTION

The award-winning PC RPG comes to Xbox 360!

The player is Geralt of Rivia, a professional monster slayer, a witcher. Entangled in the political turmoil that engulfed Temeria, Geralt helped quell the rebellion of the Order of the Flaming Rose. Soon after, he saved King Foltest’s life when the monarch was attacked by a witcher-like assassin. He continues to protect the king, serving as his bodyguard as Foltest strives to bring peace to his kingdom. The Order’s last bastions have yielded to the royal army, yet one more task remains - the Baroness La Valette announced her secession from the realm, and her fortress must be taken. A month after the attempted assassination, Foltest’s armies stand at the gates of La Valette Castle, preparing for a final assault. Still at Foltest’s side, Geralt is among them, unable to begin his personal quest to discover the mysterious assassin’s origin and identity…

THE WORLD & STORY OF THE WITCHER 2

Unique, deep, consistent and rich game world established in a series of best-selling books by A. Sapkowski and recreated in the game to provide an incredible, believable story-driven experience. Every decision may lead to dire consequences - your choices impact relations with other characters and entire communities, and may even influence the political situation in the Northern Kingdoms.

An intense, emotionally charged, non-linear story for mature players, offering over 40 hours of gameplay

The Witcher 2 leads players through different gameplay paths to 16 different endings, making it one of the most non-linear and complex storylines ever brought to the console market.

The game world teems with life. The most detailed, lively and highly varied locations ever seen on consoles include the mighty La Valette Castle, the bustling dwarven mining town of Vergen, multiple border garrisons and fortresses, ancient forests, and the vibrant trading post and river port of Flotsam.

The PC version of the Witcher 2 was praised by both fans and critics, making it one of the best RPGs of 2011. The Witcher community is very active, and the developers engage fans constantly to solicit opinions and insights. Many ideas put forth by fans were included in The Witcher 2 and significantly enhanced the gaming experience.The game has been distinguished by many awards and high review scores. Despite only having been available for a short time, IGN included The Witcher 2 in its list of the Top 25 Modern PC Games.

KEY FEATURES

  • A truly epic, intense, emotionally charged adventure with non-linear game narration. Three independent plot lines with several alternative events are dependent on the player’s choices and lead to multiple different game endings and several additional plot forks. This time gameplay time will be shorter than The Witcher 1, but more intense and packed with events.
  • A complex, realistic and mature story touching upon subject matter seldom seen in other RPGs, told in a manner that is understandable and attractive to contemporary gamers. We investigate the assassinations of the rulers of the Northern Kingdoms and follow Geralt’s personal theme, in which he’s looking for his own identity. Gradually we learn how powerful forces influence our situation and what role they order us to play.
  • Rich, mature dialogue as found in Andrzej Sapkowski’s book series and The Witcher 1, presented in highly filmic cutscenes and dialogues sequences, thanks to a new game engine.
  • New, improved system of flashbacks. Now the reminiscences of Geralt, in which we observe the link between our past choices with current actions, are realistically and smoothly woven into the gameplay.
  • Sex and eroticism will be introduced in a much more realistic, involving and mature way, thanks to which sexual relationships are presented more credibly than in TW1.
  • Unique, deep, consistent and rich game world established in a series of best-selling books by A. Sapkowski and recreated in the game to provide an incredible, believable story-driven experience.
  • Believable, true-to-life characters with their own motivations and goals. During our journey we meet ordinary men, soldiers, rebels, powerful mages, rulers and their assassins. Depending on our decisions we meet different game characters, and our relationships shape further actions in the game.
  • Highly varied, breathtaking locations, which thanks to the new engine create a cohesive, fully accessible world!
  • Rich, living world in which every character has their own way of life and unique occupations. Our actions modify the relationship with the game-world population and, in the case of the main plot line, open or close the possibilities of interaction with the game world.
  • Greater freedom of exploration to provide increased game realism and a wider range of new tactical options. Geralt will surmount barriers, jump over fences, scale walls and ascend rock formations.
  • A beautiful new graphic Red Engine based on State-of-the-Art , ultramodern technology created by CD Projekt RED.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic, Immersive , Amazing.... 10 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Really don't get how anyone can review this game with less than 5 stars! Obviously they did not invest the time into this game that it deserves and requires to experience true RPG greatness. Once you engage with the story it truly immerses you into the game and you cannot stop playing it! Combat is fluent and responsive and the quests are simply fantastic. Currently on my third playthrough of the 30+ hour game as there are so many choices that dramaticly alter the main story line and the events that take place. To get to the point, stop reading this review and go buy this game. If you invest your time into it you will experience the masterpiece that is The Witcher 2 Assassins of Kings!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark, difficult, immersive. 17 April 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
An excellent game here.

It's been quite a year for fantasy fans with titles like Skyrim and Dark Souls, and now we have another classic game to add to the list! and what a wonderful game it is.

This is what would happen should you put George R Martin's Game Of Thrones and Elder Scrolls: Skyrim into a blender. Add a touch of norse mythology for good measure. Dark and intriguing plot filled with many characters that are masterfully developed (especially for a game), simply jaw dropping graphics and presentation to boot..

- Story, Spoiler Free

The game is set in a norse mythology rich medieval world. Geralt of Rivia, our protagonist, is a Witcher. A professional monster slayer for hire, and an intelligent character with a good sense of black humour. The game is set in a beautifully realized fantasy world where an unknown assasin is slaying royals with a great degree of skill. The game begins with Geralt in a dungeon, being taunted by guards. Soon he is taken from his cell by a knight, who attempts to get to the bottom of why Geralt is imprisonned. During this prologue of the game, Geralt recalls several memories of the events leading to his imprisonment. He recalls a political battle from beside the king he is a hand to, lending his powerful magic and swordsmanship to the throne. The story is so in depth and of a grand scale that to write it down here would take a long time, so to cut things short, Geralt is wrongly accused of assasinating the king, and with the help of his lover and a band of unlikely individuals must set out to find the real killer and clear his name. There is an absolute myriad of sub plots, twists and political intrigue going on with a variety of characters of various races and realms. Dwarfs, Elves, Humans, etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars bewitching the world; the witcher 2 21 April 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Witcher 2 is a gorgeous package made up of stunning visuals like that of Skyrim, narrative with substantial consequences like Mass Effect, story telling cut scenes bettering Dragon Age 2 and the gruelling and challenging combat of Dark Souls.

Set in a dark fantasy relme of corruption and political drama, you take the role as Geralt, a mutated monster hunter better known as a Witcher. Accused of killing king Foltest whom he was sworn to protect, he is on a mission to clear his name and capture the real culprit, with one major predicament standing in his way, amnesia (and a slight glitch in the scrolling system).

Placing the game into the Xbox with much excitement and anticipation I couldn't wait to see if everything was all its been hyped up to be. The first cinematic kicks in and so far I am not disappointed, instantly making my jaw drop and mouth water, the graphics are outstanding with heroic and adventure felt music fitting the fantasy epic perfectly. Immediately this sets your expectations at an all time high, especially since being compared to the hugely successful Skyrim ( and one of my all time beloved RPG's).

Once the cut scene has ended and you have adjusted your screen settings accordingly to fit your game play, you are presented with an opportunity of a tutorial, in my opinion TAKE IT! Honestly you will regret it if you don't, its most definitely a vital way of enhancing your skills in all aspects of the game. The tutorial touches on magic spells, sword fighting, bombs, traps and combat targeting, also some basic potion creation via meditation mode.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 17 April 2012
By Bronn TOP 500 REVIEWER
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I played the Witcher 2 on PC and it looked incredible, it's funny how a small Polish developer managed
to produce a fantastic PC exclusive (at the time) which put most big budget western games to shame.

The developer CD Projekt has hand-signed all launch copies of the game sold by Amazon, plus this Enhanced
Edition has all the DLC & new content included for free - this should tell you something about CD Projekt.

The Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition for 360 has a more joypad friendly control scheme (more so than even the PC version
which already fully supported controllers). That's not all, the Enhanced Edition also brings several graphical
improvements, with much better lighting being the most visible improvement - even on the 360 it's very obvious.

There is a short 4 minute CGI intro sequence which is quite spectacular actually, and sets things in motion nicely,
you can watch it on Youtube right now. Amazon's current price of 31.99 is a great deal especially for a launch price.

The game itself is a top notch RPG and looks amazing. You play as Geralt of Rivia who is a Witcher (professional
monster slayer) who is bang in the middle of the political battles that have engulfed the land of Temeria. With
the help of the CGI intro, and a bit of reading you should be able to get the gist of the story pretty quickly.

The gameplay is fun and varied and lasts about 20-30hrs or more depending on how you approach it. It's a complete
RPG experience and can end in a variety of ways (the number and variety of endings available for this game put
Mass Effect 3's three colour coded attempts to shame).

There is a bit of a game drought until May - The Witcher 2 is perfect for filling that gap. Also, if you own the
Witcher 2 on PC there is a free Enhanced Edition update out today which brings all the new content for free!
