The Witcher's settings, all the memorable characters, the horror elements, the variety of monsters aplenty, the fun that I had w/ the original Witcher had me play thru it repeatedly. I wouldnt say that Witcher 2 was a bad game, but when held up against it predecessor I feel that it was fairly weak in comparison.
I couldn't agree more with both of these statements, and I suppose I'm also one of the few who preferred the first Witcher over the second.

There weren't any characters in the sequel that I really connected with, nothing that really stood out. In turn, I was anticipating finishing TW2 and putting the game down for good.

TW1 had more than a few moments of interest for me. Chapter/Act IV with Geralt's knighting and the focus of Alvin was very interesting, including the story of the King of the Wild Hunt. There are quite a few characters and areas of interest that I can recall off the top of my head that really piqued my interest as something unique about TW1. I can't say the same for TW2 at all.

I think the political focus of TW2 really crushed my interest as a whole, similar to xSamhainx's experience.
