The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

 

Originally released on the PC in 2011, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings has finally made its debut on the Xbox 360 in the Enhanced Edition. The developers at CD Projekt RED broke the traditional mold of hasty ports with a version of the game that has...

To be honest, I’ve not played the original Witcher until somewhat recently when it happened to be on sale. I tried playing through it; I really did, but was never able to finish it, though I always wanted to as I really enjoyed the characters and lore....

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings (Enhanced Edition) Review

 

A sorrowful world, complex political intrigue, and meaningful choices make The Witcher 2 a must-play.

Intricate, politically charged story ; Player choice manifests itself in meaningful ways ; Gorgeous, fearsome world tinged with death and despair ; Entertaining combat with a good sense of impact ; A number of powerful, memorable moments

Visual and interface quirks ; Third act comes to an abrupt conclusion

Not including the prologue and epilogue, The Witcher 2 is split into three acts. The first is primarily concerned with following the killer's trail, while the second greatly expands the plot. The convoluted plot seems poised to explode in the final...

CD Projekt Interview: The Witcher 2, GOG.com

 

We chat with CD Projekt's co-founder about signing Atari to Good Old Games, and their RPG sequel The Witcher 2.

Combat was the main complaint for some gamers in the first title; many were split on the mechanics. Marcin personally loves it, but nevertheless it will be improved in the successor.

Previews of The Witcher 2 hinted at an experience akin to what would happen if Sephiroth had featured in Game of Thrones; fortunately actual game is angst-free, interesting, pretty, and quite possibly what EA's Dragon Age 2 should have been. The...

Despite these gripes with the system, it still feels good to control and like you’re a smart person for using it well. You can often fail a mission and carry on, knowing that you’ve affected the story because of it, rather than only having one...

Games Xtreme's own Captain Sugar gets down with his Witcher side in our review of the 360 version of the game.

Witcher 2 is the best fantasy console rpg to date and a definite GOTY 2012 contender.

Witcher 2 Xbox 360 review: Darker than Skyrim, sexier than Mass Effect - better than both?

 

There's a zinger piece of dialogue during the original Witcher where Geralt of Rivia muses: "Power, sex. Sex, Power. They both come down to one thing - fucking others." It's a brilliant line in a series filled with great lines: where musings of...

Geralt and pals are an earthy joy ; Beefy combat with goresome finishers ; Some great virtual shagging

Checkpoints are a bit fiddly, with long-ish load times ; Ending's been padded out, but it's still abrupt

Gritty, sexy, vicious, sumptuous bastard of a role-player that in-between Mass Effect and The Elder Scrolls heralds an exciting third pathway for the genre
