Default The Witcher - Final Thoughts @ Twenty Sided

August 19th, 2008, 23:35
You may recall Twenty Sided's Shamus Young had been dissecting The Witcher (see Meet Geralt and Presentation) and after a delay, we have the Final Thoughts. Shamus has decided to avoid actually critiquing the game, other than the obvious inferences in his sarcasm-laden post:
It turns out I never really took the steps needed to enjoy the game. Iíve been unfair. Luckily, people have provided me with lots of helpful tips on what Iíve been doing wrong. It turns out that to really enjoy the game you just need to:
1. Read a 72-page manual.
2. Read the series of books on which the game is based. (You need to learn Polish first, as only the first book is available in English.)
3. Wait until the patch comes out in a few months that will fix up all the annoyances and problems with the game.
4. Spend hundreds of dollars upgrading your computer. Only a fool plays a game with mid-range hardware, anyway.
5. Play for several hours until you get to the good parts.
I admit, I just jumped right in and expected it to be fun. Seems kind of crazy in retrospect. Iím going to discontinue this series until I can complete the tasks in that list so that I can give the game a proper review.
More information.
