The Witcher 2 - Review Roundup

by Aries100, 2011-06-29 18:46:23

More reviews for this game has been published. I'll quote one of them and list the others:

First up is Thunderbolt  Games -  9/10

But The Witcher 2 goes much deeper than this basic premise, leading its protagonist on a wild journey filled to the brim with political intrigue, conspiracies, warring factions, supernatural forces and a whole host of superbly written characters, all with their own real, corrupt and existential motive.

Another quote from this interview:

However, it does teach you a harsh lesson in how to fully utilise Geralt’s arsenal of abilities. The Witcher 2 isn’t a game where you can charge in, sword swinging through the air with abandon, and have any hope of winning. Each fight must have a thought process behind it, weighing up the kind of enemies you’re fighting and continuously looking to manoeuvre into the best position possible; not just to attack, but to defend as well. You’ll need to block, roll and use each of Geralt’s sign spells and bomb and trap placements to survive.

And a snip from the conclusion:

It’s a smart, refreshingly dark take on RPGs, complemented by action-oriented and tactical combat with a surprising amount of depth. It has its flaws but they’re only minor in what is a landmark title and a series we can only hope will long continue

And then the others:
