Default 1st Witcher 2 review is IN! - 05-11-2011, 12:02 | posts: 440 | Location: Kenya

As soon as I saw that a review is out I literally jumped up and shouted: "yeeeaaaahhh". Ok I know, I know, I got overexcited, (last time this happened was in the champions league soccer match where Barca played Real) but this one of my most hyped up games for this year!

The 1st review is in the Polish mag, CD-Action. I'll sum it up for you:

Quote:

Gameplay - 9/10

Video - 9/10

Audio - 10/10

Overall - 9.5/10

Pros=

+ Mature, well though out story

+many many points at which the story branches out

+excellent, humorous dialogs

+the dynamic of the combat

+excellent in terms of sound and graphics

+last a long time

Cons=

-stealth portions

-ending

This most probably Means the reviewer is a lazy ass and beat the game one time and saw one ending and was like "well I guess that's that"...

Its £23 on The Hut.com and they ship free of charge to anywhere in Europe I believe. Very cheap and you also get the finisher pack, which is new finishing moves and advanced combat techniques. Out of all the pre-order bonuses I like this one the best.

Think more publishers should do what EA Download Manager does, and let you register the serial from the retail version on their Digital Distribution service.

Good to see the game is getting good reviews, never expected it not to though, not easy to browse sites on the sneak, as at work, so can anyone elaborate on why stealth potions are considered Cons?

I think this is a screenshot of the configuration program.



We have Ubersampling!, I like it better than supersampling

I hated the first Witcher, first 3 times I tried it, could not enjoy it, I found it boring.

Then I lost my net and it was one of the few games I had for a few months, so I was forced into it, and once I learned the combat, took an interest in the world, it was a very fun game that I didn't want to end. Fun stuff.
