The Witcher 1 / 2 question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey.


I'm currently deciding whether I should get The Witcher 2 or not.

I have The Witcher 1.. But I've tried playing i several times but I give up after 30m/1 hour :/ I don't know why but it just doens't appeal to me.. The combat and everything.


However, I've seen some videos of gameplay from The Witcher 2, and that looks much more appealing.. more fast paced combat, which I like, compared to 1 which feels "slow".

I have a question tho..


- Can I play The Witcher 2 and follow the story (i love stories) and still find it exciting and good? Or do I really need to push my self through the first one to get the story etc?

If you didn't like the first you probably won't like the second. The fighting style is different but it's still going to be a fairly slow paced game.

Well as of my understanding, there is like a "prologue" scene or mini-game before the actual Witcher 2 story begins, so you won`t miss out to much.

Umm i'm pretty sure the prologue scene covers what happened to geralt before they started torturing him and that has pretty much nothing to do with witcher 1...
