Yes, I've only played the second and it was amazing. Mass Effect is one of my top series too.

Heard nothing but great things. Combat was a bit finicky for my liking. Couldn't get past it to experience/enjoy the rest of the game.

It doesn't have the polish of Mass Effect games but it's certainly got more heart.

Batman Arkham Asylum is my vote! Not witcher.

The first was a bit crap IMO, and it hasn't aged well. More of a cult following than anything else.

The second is pretty good and a worthwhile purchase for any RPG fan. You don't need to play the first to understand/follow the second.

I know for a fact that many people will vouch for Witcher 2 by saving that it's in their top 5 RPGs. So yes, the Witcher series is good.

The witcher 1 suck for me, the story is ok but the game engine suck.
The witcher 2 however was way better, but the story is too short for my liking and the fighting is a bit unbalanced...

Conclusion
Witcher 1 = suck don't buy it
Witcher 2 = good if you like super realistic graphics

by the way don't get me wrong, i like witcher 2 ; it's a great game. cheers

Both Witcher games have exceptionally good story line & atmosphere. The user interface & controls (especially during combat) is lacking in both games, but after the you get used to it, it does not bother you so much.
Witcher 2 is a bit too short & the adventure part of the game is too easy, but it is still a great game, although not as good as the first Witcher game.

The Witcher games are similar to the Mass Effect games in the respect that they both have a mix of adventure game quest solving, RPG elements and action. The athmosphere & settings radically different though. The depth of story line & athmosphere found in the Witcher games surpasses those in Mass Effect.

My advice to you is to buy the first game and play through the first two parts of the game (not any less) so that you get a feeling of the game works and the general athmosphere etc.

Witcher 2 is kind of the talk on this forum, Id never even looked at witcher until witcher 2 came out.

Its got amazingly pretty graphics - far from realistic though. But there are some wonderful sights too see in it. Its a very pretty world.

Apart from that, theres like 16 different endings, and a whole bunch of possibilities mid game - they didnt pull it off. My witcher has such a boring storyline too him, I just ended up clicking through all of the cutscenes too move into the action. Its just not good at giving you a good storyline. Its an alright game, my favourite thing is the beauty of the levels, but I wouldnt buy it for the gameplay though. The combat is finicky, along with the inventory screens etc. which are an eyesore. Its easy too run on a system, until you turn ubersampling on, which you cannot even tell the difference in graphical quality but it is about 3x as hard for a system too run, marketing gimmick IMO. (If you think it makes it look better, look through my started threads for my thread named "which one has ubersampling" and look at the poll scores)

There may be an amazing storyline too it, but certainly not for me.
