The Witcher 2: Assassing of Kings

New Polish production of CD Projekt RED just came out some time ago.

Western fantasy role-playing games have moved in different directions over the years. You have the European type of games like Two Worlds II, the Gothic series, and the original The Witcher. Games that tend to expect a lot of patience from the player while giving you a huge amount of things to do in an open, yet usually (or initially) buggy world.

Then you have games like Dragon Age II that streamline the more hardcore elements to provide a more polished experience, but at the same time restrict your freedom in terms of customizability and things like crafting.

Now it looks like we finally have a game that tries to do it all, and in doing so might blow anything away that we've grown to kind of accept in recent years. If you were one of those people that complained about Game X and said "I'll wait for Witcher 2 instead," then congratulations: you were right.

Developed by CD Projekt RED and released in 2007, The Witcher had you take control of Geralt of Rivia, a "witcher" who excels at hunting monsters. The game was based on a book series of the same name by Polish fantasy author Andrzej Sapkowski and has since amassed a cult following of loyal fans. The game's sequel, The Witcher 2, is now upon us, and hot on the heels of its release we have a plethora of character-specific trailers to give you a who's who in the Witcher universe.

Review of the game:


I love this game. I'd bought collectors edition and i think that this game is worth the price.
