4.0 out of 5 stars Nearly Perfect 7 Nov 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been looking for a worthy RPG to get my teeth into since Baldur's Gate 2, way back when, and finally it arrived. But it didn't come from Bioware- NWN 2 and Mass Effect didn't grab me, nor did Bethesda's Oblivion (although I appreciate I am in the minority here), it comes from a comparatively small developer in the form of CD Projekt. Not having played the original version of the Witcher, I can't comment on differences between this and that, but I can say that this grimy, dark, adult and hugely atmospheric game is the first RPG of substance that I've sat through to completion for nearly a decade.

Graphics- Superb. The locations are rendered with impressive draw distances and the weather is beautifully done. Geralts animations are top notch, and whilst the same can't be said for all his adversaries, it doesn't detract much from the gameplay. Some NPC models are repeated, which I read was a criticism of the original version. Sometimes I run in first person and stand still just to take in the sunset over the river- it really is very nice. One more thing- the combat graphics (brutal decapitations, spraying gore) is very adult and simply mindblowing.

Sound- A mix of American and British accents which are well acted for the most part. Some of the dialogue doesn't flow perfectly, because the tone of voice seems at odds with what the character is trying to say. Hard to explain but I noticed it on several occasions. The music is very atmospheric and is a perfect match for the graphical style.

Presentation- Awesome box set with a map, making of DVD, game guide and fully detailed manual. The addition of 2 Music cd's with soundtrack and inspired tunes makes this compilation excellent value for money. The in-game options are easy to navigate.

5.0 out of 5 stars GAMING AS IT SHOULD BE! 20 Sep 2008
By NeuroSplicer TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Were I a member of the gaming Industry right now, I would be shamed to be taught what gaming should look and feel like and how it should be marketed by a small Eastern European company. Who of the multi-billion gaming "giants" ever went back to improve a released game? Yet, there you have it: thanks to CDPROJECT gaming as an art-form is still alive and kicking!

This was the most awaited fantasy cRPG in the past 3 years. Not only did the original deliver, but even more work has gone into truly improving it.
THIS WAS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL cRPG GAMES I HAD EVER PLAYED - AND NOW IT IS GORGEOUS!

The environments are detailed, realistic, and can be experienced from up close. Grass, flowers and tree branches moved in both FABLE and TITAN QUEST as well; these, however, seem so true I caught myself reaching for my...antihistamines! Weather affects and day-night alterations (you have to see the elongating shadows to believe them!) are just gorgeous! More importantly, these are not just eye-candy: certain NPCs and monsters appear only when the correct combination of time-of-day and weather coincide...The horizon is far and the clouds move in endless variations. It reminded me of the sky of the original UNREAL, another visually ground-breaking game at its time. PURE VISUAL MAGIC!

The character (Geralt) can master both sword-fighting and magic spells (what is known as a Warlock). To some die-hard RPG fans this may seem like heresy, nevertheless, keep in mind that multi-classing is not unheard off. The movement repertoire for both practices are impressively designed. Especially the sword-fighting, it is at par to any console action game. And the spells (both offensive and defensive ones) are not less impressive.

Free roaming? Yes and no.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good RPG 11 Sep 2009
By Ekprima
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Got this nice game from my other half (funny he always picks up the best RPGs for me). I love this game. I've completed a few of the quest and I'm getting hooked. Fine, I don't like the combat controls and I would have expected the creators to come up with better controls than what they did. I mean this came out in 2008 and Elder Scrolls Oblivion was released before this one but the combat controls in that one is superb. The controls in Fallout3 & Oblivion is better than the one on the witcher. Also, I don't really like the way the camera works. When you zoom out to see the evironment around Geralt, you loose some of the mouse contol like during a fight. One thing I can give them kudos for is the 1.5 update which has taken out the bit that requires the CD to play. I admit, I hate the noise from the DVD during game play. So that update is a must. I gave it a fun rating of 5 because it has a good story line and there are many side quest to complete. Overall, I gave it a 4 star because if issues mentioned above. But don't let this put you off buying this game. It is a fantastic game and is a must for RPG lovers. It even plays on my small laptop that wouldn't play Fallout3. How cool is that?

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best action RPG's of all time!! 18 July 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
i just wanted to write this review to say i think The Witcher is one of my all time favorites varied gameplay multiple ways of completing quests, its more adult in its way of approaching a fantasy world with lots of racial and sexual undertones. the main character geralt is excellent you can upgrade him in many different ways with spells, sword technics, and alchemy. you can bed a lot of the women and get a nice little playing card of the event lol. also the fighting mechanic is very unique instead of clicking the mouse once and watcing a pre planned fight sequence in most rpg's you have to time your button presses to continue the combo progress.

this is a fantastic game and i urge all PC owners to check this out, as the second game will be out at the start of 2011 and its looking stunning.

highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars poor combat mechanics
No native controller support. Combating is very awkward using mouse and is no joy at all compared to titles like Assassin's Creed series or Batman.
