"A must-have for Fantasy RPG fans "
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The Witcher 2 on 360 will no doubt be remembered as one of the best RPGs of this console generation, standing with its head held high amongst the likes of Skyrim, Dragon Age, and Dark Souls.

The control scheme is intuitive, and the graphics, although not as eye-popping as its PC counterpart, will still make your jaw drop every now and then.

The engaging story, compelling characters, immersive fantasy world, and a combat system that's challenging and rewarding in equal measure, all add up to an RPG experience that is well worth your time, even if you missed out on the PC-only original.

"Pretty Awesome"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The Witcher 2 is one of the best RPG I played. The game is based most around the story where the player is playing the hero (Geralt of Rivia) and will be searching for the kings assassin. From there on you will be teleported into this beautiful world like a movie and will investigate how and why all this happened to you. The graphism is stunning as much as the sound atmosphere or the music design but this is not a free roam game but never the less the few maps are big and a lot to explore…Quests with characters environments and even weapons and items are all designed to fit the story rather than the other way around. The quests for example arent of the (kill this many of monster x for a bounty) variety. The contracts you take require you to fight and study the beasts until you unlock the necessary knowledge of how to get rid of them for good from there you typically must create a special trap or perform an action unique to that quest. Crafting is designed to work with the fiction as well requiring Geralt to obtain blueprints then collect mundane components like twine and raw metal in addition to the epic components like troll skin. This makes crafting extremely expensive or time consuming at times but it makes the process much more immersive and the reward that much more gratifying. The game have alternate endings depending on player choices throughout the story. I was happy to discover was that the game can be played through two completely different campaigns depending on some choices and that the end game differences are much more substantial than (character x is your friend instead of character y because you took his side.) Not to spoil too much but key characters can be killed kingdoms can be shifted and the information you know about your opponents is all different based on how you play. You may not even meet some characters and you certainly wont know the secrets behind many events unless you play the game through again from the alternate perspective. Bear in mind these arent good/evil decisions either. The developers do a great job making each option in the scenarios seem valid and there was never a clear solution to any given problem I faced. In combat you carry a silver sword to slay monsters and an iron sword to kill men because thats the way a Witcher fights. Potions can only be drunk prior to combat when Geralt is in meditation mode. Why- Because Geralt does all his preparations prior to battle so the gamer plays by the same constraints. I personally found myself completely absorbed by the game world and my place in it. Civilians occasionally insulted Geralt mutant nature and I began to take offense. Going into battle I started to think ahead and plan reading up on the types of monsters I will be facing rather than just jumping into combat. There are occasional breaks from this perspective as you see events through another partys eyes but for the most part you live the life of Geralt of Rivia. The story is very dark with clear themes of racism/rape/ge­nocide ect… In many of the subplots. The characters tend to be rather vulgar but not necessarily in an immature way it comes across that they are more coarse than immature and the dialogue tends to fit well with the oppressive atmosphere of the game world. As you can probably tell from the above points I really loved The Witcher 2 but it is not without its flaws. There are no changes on the controller if you dont like original setup. The interface is a bit difficult at time to manage or some stupid fact like you cant swim but overall this is a beautiful game for a more mature audience than the button bashing kind of game.

REVIEWS

“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…
