It's a matter of taste I presume.

That's what I meant by previous area. Area 1: Outskirt, area 2: First part of the city. Etc. Very few RPGs are built like this, even when they're chapter based (there may be parts of it where you don't have access to previous regions, but most of the time it's not like that).

Never said they did, nor that I was disappointed by delivery compared to promise. I simply don't like the character development, as every combat type is needed no matter what you decide to focus on.

Can't recall any RPGs I would rate highly that had a character development system that affected as little as the one in The Witcher.
