The Witcher (PC)

 

Don't be afraid of change. Even though The Witcher may scare off some people with inventive combat that replaces comfortable old rapid-fire clicking with rhythmic sword swinging, there is no need to avoid one of the deepest, most adult role-playing...

CD Projekt Red has given us "The Witcher", a remarkable single-player RPG that captures everything flavorful about lush, gothic settings and mature themes. Even more surprising is how refreshing and different The Witcher feels compared to preceding...

The Witcher

 

Polish author Andrzej Sapkawski's novels, detailing the exploits and struggles of the monster-slaying "witcher," were first adapted as comic books. A film, television series, and pen and paper RPG followed. Thanks to CD Projekt, the story is now...

An overall score of 83% may come as a surprise after all the complaint. When stripped down to its individual pieces, The Witcher seems below average, flawed, and unworthy of a play-through. Most Western RPGs, however, have little individuality, and The...

CD Projekt's long-awaited The Witcher has arrived on the PC and features a very dark and gritty storyline with a world full of grey areas and characters that all have their fair share of flaws. Based on the Polish Novel The Last Wish, The Witcher...

But with a gritty and mature story, an awesome combat system, and built on an engine that brought us Neverwinter Nights, The Witcher is a slightly flawed title that is worth checking out. While it certainly isn't one of the best games of the year, as a...

Unless you're Polish, you've probably never heard of Andrzej Sapkowski -- the fantasy author behind The Witcher. His eight-book cycle follows the adventures of Geralt, a white-haired monster hunter in a morally ambiguous medieval world. Sapkowski's...

What many will first see is just how good The Witcher looks. The recommended specs are not going to tax many of today's machines heavily, but it won't play on too many older rigs. The graphics are really good, providing plenty of detail and displaying...

Great story ; Good music ; Adult presentation without devolving into gimmicks ; Immersive world

Combat difficult to get into ; Inconsistent dialogue/translation

One of the better offerings in the genre and worth picking up.

The Witcher Review for the PC

 

The which than which there is no Witcher.

Dark, bleak style; Timed, anti-spaz combat; Convincing world

Heap-big load times; Some disjointed cinema/dialogue; Some glitches

Developer CD Projekt’s bleak, stylish The Witcher is, among other things, a sort of rude, jagged-edged anti-Hyrulian adventure - a poisonous, alchemic (and probably suppositorial) cure for the common optimistic high-fantasy cold, if you will - based on...

Take the interface of Neverwinter Nights, the beauty of Oblivion and the depth and maturity of Planescape: Torment and you get The Witcher. It is, by far, the best CRPG to come down the pike since Baldur's Gate II.

Regardless, if you've been waiting for an epic, vintage CRPG experience then The Witcher deserves serious consideration. It's a nice tall bottle of liquid awesome. So grab a glass from the bar and give it a shot.

The Witcher - PC review at Thunderbolt Games

 

You are Geralt of Riviera, you have a rather large bump on your head, and life sucks. It's the end of a five year war, and you don't know where you are, who you are, or what you are. Thankfully, some kind souls are along shortly to get you back up on...

The Witcher delivers professional monster-hunting at its finest.

Cool plot; unique, gritty setting; fun combat and alchemy design; long and fulfilling campaign

Some quest bugs; long and frequent load times; not enough NPC models; some stability issues pre-patch

Product Specifications

The Witcher represents the pinnacle of storytelling in role-playing games, shattering the line between good and evil with a world where moral ambiguity reigns. In a beautiful, rich game universe created by artists first, technology second, the player becomes his own hero in an epic, action-packed narrative uniquely defined by his actions. Returning to the roots of the role-playing genre with a fresh and modern approach, The Witcher emphasizes story and character development in a vibrant world, while incorporating tactically-deep real-time combat like no game before it.
