Absolute must play for PC gamers.

Posted

Pros: Long play time. Great character development. Good combat

Cons: A few graphical glitches.

This game is 100 percent worth playing. It started off a bit rough. The combat is hard to get used to even for seasoned pc gamers, but get past it and you will not regret it. I decided to fight past the difficulty and really found it worth it. I decided randomly one day to try it out with a controller and it all fell together. Plays perfectly with one. The story is completely addicting. Once you get into the characters, you find your self siding with your favorites and making decisions to favor them.

An absolute triumph in modern RPG's

Pros: Plot is excellent, gameplay is simple, yet effective, and graphics are visually stimulating.

Cons: Gameplay can be frustrating, and the game suffers from an archaic quest system.

This is one of my absolute favorite titles in recent years. When I first launched The Witcher 2, I was in awe of its presentation. The Witcher 2 sets you off as Geralt of Rivia, an amnesia-stricken monster hunter (known as "witchers") who is caught in the midst of a political struggle throughout the world. After being framed for the murder of two kings, Geralt must set out to clear his name, and reestablish balance (unwillingly) across the kingdoms. Story: The story is fantastic. It is rather unique in nature, and sports a mature setting, one not for the faint of heart. Witcher 2 is deep in lore, offering a rich world that surrounds the player. Top that off with a colorful (and vast)...
