Never, probably. The first one most likely did not have the development costs this one has so they had more time to iron out bugs where as in the first one it was not a really big game.

Edit : Not liking the fist fighting compared to the first one. All you do is tap a button and autowin now frown.gif

400 users..none of whom have beat the game. I can never trust anyone else who makes some half truth review and has only played maybe 10% of a game. So all of these people have reviewed the first act without finishing the rest of the game?

That was pretty much my experience in the first... never dropped below half health. Either punch or block, alternating between the two, and eventually you'll win. I was playing on normal so maybe that's why?

For the few that asked about the DLC issues:

UPDATE 1:57 AM CET: We've returned to the old way of serving the DLC but this doesn't mean that it solves everything. Most of you will be able to download the DLC. Some of you probably won't. We know what's the problem - it resolves around the DLC CRC being cached but can't do much about it at this very moment. This issue is very important for us as we understand how you feel. We will try to address this issue with a support software in the mean time and this problem should be solved finally with the incoming Patch1 - early next week.

I thought the first game was kinda easy, especially if you took your time and did all the side missions and leveled up nicely... I plan to replay it on hard at some point... What I like, is that I keep hearing that people are saying the second one is hard; maybe it will prove more challenging to me.

How far did you progress the first time around? If you didn't make it past chapter 3 or 4, I'd go for it, it's worth playing in and of itself, and additionally you'll be more familiar with the characters/issues/setting once you play #2.

I just reached the epilogue in TW1 today, probably starting TW2 tomorrow, can't wait. For me, it was definitely worth playing through the first one, it's one of the games I've most enjoyed of all time. Thanks to Vhati for convincing me to hold off on TW2 for a bit longer.

So is the Witcher 2 worth buying?

Is there any games it is similar to in play style? Or is it it's own beast? What sort of audience would this be aimed at?

How well does the control pad work in this game?

Lastly how does it run on mid range rigs? Anyone got any screenshots of it running on something similar to what I'm running?

It is without a doubt Game of the Year contender, and probably winner. it treats its audience like adults in content, and in terms of story and thought.

So far it is universally praised by reviews on metacritic. Both user and critic.

Well I finished it. Took me three days and I have no idea how many hours it took. And I LOVE IT! Damn I even had to buy the first 'cause I found this one so great with the story and all. There's just one problem.. It was a little short.. From those "40 hours of gameplay" they tell everyone, I was hoping it would last longer.

Well I'll probably finish the first and then continue the second one with my imported save in hard or insane(finished it on normal).

The inventory screen sucks instead of item slots it has their names and you have to scroll through it. Also the controls suck you can't click to move/pick up stuff. Also this game has no support for eyefinity/sli which sucks
