The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

 

RPG veterans have a lot to look forward to this year. From exploring the gorgeous landscape of Skyrim to kicking butt as an augmented security officer in Deus Ex Human Revolution, there's something to satiate everyone's appetite. But before you embark...

As much as I enjoyed my time with The Witcher 2, it’s important to reiterate the game’s shortcomings. It can be a bit intimidating to newcomers with its erratic difficulty and steep learning curve, so if you’re the impatient variety, you may get put...

Richly textured and stuffed with memorable moments, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is a marvel among role-playing games.

These details are only worth mentioning, of course, because they jar with the stunning detail, polish and craft that CD Projekt RED have put into this world. Overall, they represent a chip in what is one of the most ambitious RPGs to grace any...

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings -…

 

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings was a strong and spectacular RPG that fell just short of classic status. CD Projekt RED's big, beautiful game was unfortunately a little shallower than it promised, the writing wasn't quite up to that of original...

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Review for the PC

 

Bringing 'shabby chic' to a whole new level.

Looks and sounds great; Fun, challenging gameplay; Fresh approaches to fantasy game tropes

Dreary, depressing writing and disjointed story events; A few minor gameplay communication issues; Kinda misogynistic

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings - PC review at Thunderbolt Games

 

CD Projekt Red's The Witcher was an ambitious game. It was hindered somewhat by its fair share of glitches and performance issues - relating to both hardware and abysmal voice work and English translation – but more than anything it showcased the...

Review: The Witcher 2 Assassins of Kings (PC)

 

The Witcher 2 is one of those rare RPG titles that come along once in a great while.  While most RPG titles promise you choices and customization, none ever seem to put you in situations that force you to make decisions that will actually have weight...

While The Witcher 2 is not perfect, it does pack in a beautiful, living and breathing world, complete with compelling characters, witty dialog and quests aplenty.  Combat and tutorial mechanics bring the game down a slight notch, but at the end of the...

Everyone is at E3 right now and I'm not. There are two reasons for that. First, I have my finals this week. By the time you read this I will hold a degree in History and Anthropology. Second, I just really wanted to play The Witcher 2, a sequel to one...

Set a short while after the events in the original title, CD Projekt Red's The Witcher 2 finds monster hunter Geralt of Rivia once again embroiled in twisted plots and politics as he strives to clear his name of a heinous crime. Maintaining the rich...

With all the gore and grit of the original, The Witcher 2 once again delivers a solid and immersive return to the this rich fantasy world.

Review: The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings for PC

 

The story of The Witcher 2 is simple. Someone killed your king. You were accused of the murder. You break out of prison and try to find the actual assassin so that you can clear your name while trying to inspire balance between the kingdoms and races...

Graphically stunning even with settings at low, great and dark story, muddy morality system adds a lot of depth and replayability to the game, ability to import saves from the original game

Targeting system suffers from ADD and will lead to your death repeatedly, inventory system is confusing, awkward keyboard controls, no fast travel or transportation
