The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings - Summary

The second installment in the RPG saga about the Witcher, Geralt of Rivia, features a thoroughly engrossing, mature storyline defining new standards for thought-provoking, non-linear game narration. In addition to an epic story, the game features an original, brutal combat system that uniquely combines tactical elements with dynamic action. A new, modern game engine, responsible for beautiful visuals and sophisticated game mechanics puts players in the most lively and believable world ever created in an RPG game. A captivating story, dynamic combat system, beautiful graphics, and everything else that made the original Witcher such a great game are now executed in a much more advanced and sophisticated way.

I got this game recently for half the price of launch. It has a bit of a steep learning curve, but its incredibly well crafter and your decisions carry strong weigth and change the world. Looks incredibly. It has a combat system that is very tactical. Not alot of variety on different attacks you can use, since the attack are auto (you just hammer 1 of 2 buttons), but overall very satisfying. I havent been able to put it down since i got it. Also, due to the different choices, theres alot of replay value.

yup I agrees with mr puggsly.. the game play and combat isn't pick up and play.. I give a 4 for control. graphics definitely at least an 8 and I don't like the medieval setting with American voice acting.. it really kills the setting..

Just finished it. Quite honestly, it wasn't great. Interesting story and great presentation. But the combat is weak, bland dialogue, and boring quests. Its a hard game to recommend.

Well, remember guys, that the game was released 1 year before xbox port and the Xbox port is worse than PC-version (but still amazing port for a console)

That's sad, that this piece of gold didn't sell masses (like Mass Effect, Fallout, Elder scrolls etc.)

At least developers are happy, because the port cost about 1 million to make. So it made a lot of profit.

I'm a little bit dissapointed how is this AWESOME game doing on X360. It sold 400k in 7 weeks, while on PC it sold 400k in first 2 days. So much about the piracy and PC as a dead platform...

hmmm I just installed and played a little of this game. After the joy of Dragon's dogma this really was a come down. Graphics are really nice but the controls I did not find any fun in there. Even after the tutorial I couldn't rememeber the basics.. not a game you can just pick up and play...
