Default The Witcher - Review @ GameSpy

November 22nd, 2007, 23:49
It's taken a while for GameSpy to review The Witcher but the final result is a score of 4.5/5 and general praise:
The game nails the depressing and yet believable backdrop. The buildings look old and run down, the local inhabitants go about their routine, running inside when it rains, commenting on their mundane troubles, and so on. It's not uncommon to see a street beggar taking a whiz on the side of a building or hear a prostitute openly proposition. The language is equally gritty, but doesn't sound out of place. Sure, it might at first seem a tad odd that fantasy characters are dropping F-bombs during a conversation, but how else would the leader of a thug/pimping operation speak? Like Shakespeare?
More information.

Remember when you slept with that prostitute back in Chapter One? That might have ramifications down the road.
Damn, I missed one?

Trust me, most of the names I have been called you can't translate in any language…they're not even real words as much as a succession of violent images.
