The player is 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…

    1. Great concept stumbling
      by Requiem, Sweden - Aug 9th 2014

      The Witcher 2 as an idea and game concept is mind blowing. You have a lot of freedom of movement and the story feels non linear with a vast world to be explored. Your character, abilities and what you can do is also versatile. You play as the typical tough guy, the animations, acting and voices are really good.

      You can of course find yourself pushed in certain directions for the sake of the plot, and it does get repetitive with some of the fights and areas to search through. NPCs will guide and hint more or less obviously, but sometimes you're on your own.

      The game has bugs but it would still be a 4 stars for me. However, the game or port to Mac, is among the worst I've seen. You can forget about the system requirements, this game needs more if you want it to run well. Which you will want for the fights since you mix weapons, magic and potions. Another thing is how the character has some dialogue options that aren't really in line with the Witcher, at least that's my view. Sometimes he's tough, sometimes he's more ordinary.

      The game appearance and idea is a 5. The story and how it's played is a 4. The complete execution is a 3 though. I assume it runs better on PC.

    2. Such a great game
      by The Last King of Scotland, USA - Apr 22nd 2014

      A beautiful game on my computer, and the usual non linear storytelling that cd projekt does. If you own a computer and don't have this series, you should get out of town.

    3. A big world to roam in
      by janglemare, - Mar 13th 2014

      I love just exploring all the cool environments the game. The plot is fun, too! Alot like Game of Thrones. I'm working on beating it on the hard mode right now—its kicking my butt and its still fun!
