“A sorrowful world, complex political intrigue, and meaningful choices
make The Witcher 2 a must-play…The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings –
Enhanced Edition is an excellent port of a superb game, embracing many of the
elements we love about RPGs without skimping on any of them. But it's the way
it handles player choice in particular that makes it most notable. There are no
contrived right-versus-wrong decisions to exploit. The results of your decision
don't just influence minor details: they lead you down wildly disparate paths,
each as entertaining as the others. The Witcher 2 is a mature game indeed–not
just because of its sexual themes and violent images, but because of its complex
portrayal of morally ambiguous individuals struggling in a morally ambiguous
world.” 9/10 – Gamespot
“One of the best, most mature RPGs of recent years is finally released on
Xbox 360…In every significant way, The Witcher 2 on Xbox 360 is the same
subversive and compelling fantasy that it was on the PC. There are some minor
technical and graphical blemishes, but they don’t detract from what is one of
the best RPGs of recent years, and the extra content adds value. This is an
ambitious and absorbing game that’s not just superficially “adult”, but
genuinely mature.” 8.5/10 – IGN
You play as Geralt of Rivia, a professional monster slayer, a witcher.
Entangled in the political turmoil that engulfed Temeria, Geralt helped quell
the rebellion of the Order of the Flaming Rose. Soon after, he saved King
Foltest's life when the monarch was attacked by a witcher-like assassin. He
continues to protect the king, serving as his bodyguard as Foltest strives to
bring peace to his kingdom. The Order's last bastions have yielded to the royal
army, yet one more task remains – the Baroness La Valette announced her
secession from the realm, and her fortress must be taken. A month after the
attempted assassination, Foltest's armies stand at the gates of La Valette
Castle, preparing for a final assault. Still at Foltest's side, Geralt is among
them, unable to begin his personal quest to discover the mysterious
assassin's origin and identity…
