Is The Witcher 1 worth playing?

post #1 of 93
Thread Starter 
So, I'm wondering... is The Witcher 1 worth playing? Is it fun, a good game? Is 2 much better than it? Graphics not in the equation. Story line, etc.

Thoughts?

No! ofcours not, it's horrible. Absolutely horrendous.
I really can't see why it has millions of sales, dedicated support and so many fans.

Dark magic must be in play here. I'm pretty sure the developers sold their soul

I'm surely you can read the sarcasm in his post? Story wise it is pretty good, however the combat is what sets it back a bit. Still very playable otherwise

I'd never heard of it until The Witcher 2 came out, so I don't really know much about it at all, hence the post

It's basically a point and click, but you have to click when the timing is correct. It's not that bad to be honest, just not an action game.

It's not meant to be an action-based game.
