8.5 at Gamespot is not bad for a PC game without solid American base. I was expecting somewhere between 8.0 to 8.7. Generally speaking, modern gamers are much less abstract and impatient of annoyances related with micromanagements while being more demanding about graphics when compared with conventional CRPG players. Of course, CRPG sites give away around 0.5 point higher scores. Overall, the Witcher seems to have been moderately successful in being accepted outside of conventional CRPG fans to some extent without putting them off.
As for some negative points, I am rather glad that they are relatively minor. Choosing a different engine may have saved the common criticism about the NPC modeling and the loading time. As for the sex-mini game, don't tell me that I didn't warn. The issue with the localization seems not to be the responsibility of the designers, though.
