How we rate the games?
The Witcher 2, is one of those games you might think as exceptionally huge. In fact, when trying out the game, I came into situations where you could not even end with a single decision. The game gives you a variety of choices, nearly in all situations, upgrade your character as you please and in no matter of time, you find yourself in a huge world with monstrous aspects. Even though I have played a demo of this game before, I didn't realize the most important aspects of it and there was a great need in learning the players movements, special abilities, the use of traps and bombs, meditation and I have not even started!
Before starting the game, you have two choices where to start and it will affect your ability to play this game later on. I will cover the main quests, as they will show you most of the game's fine arts. First of all, in the main menu, you can fetch your graphics card's true power, by adding some neat graphics to the game. It was very clear that the game's lightning, textures and player models where by far the best we have seen in all the previous reviews. I have to tell you that the lightning was glowing a bit too much, even though some might like it this way.
The optimization was good enough to handle the most difficult tasks for your player, even though I found myself in some tricky situation where I had to load the game again to pass through. At least, you won't get corrupted save files, swords which won't collide with your enemies, or other stuff which look way too buggy. There is no way you will tell bad things about this game, unless you get bored by reading the first tutorial screen which might suck up like 30 minutes to give you a head-start. I personally disliked that too, but compared to what you gather later on, it was extremely important. Passing the tutorial, will only make things even worse for you, so your best bet is to start off with it. Not to mention the difficulties you will have later on the game, making it impossible to beat based on some missions you might have.
Idea is one of this games best bet, where you learn a lot about a thrilling and dramatic story. Adding the dragon into the game, made things exceptionally good and raised the overall attention to this game much more. I would consider this game as another Dragon Age I, but with much more stuff to add and graphics. The Witcher's worst thing that made it loose attention from some of its fans was its controls, which where very complicated when compared to other games and the tutorial was very important. No matter what happened, a lot of people claim this as one of the best programmed games of its year. One thing to note about our reviews though, is that we will put every single game which is good enough to give to the audience something that is really worth it, no matter how much haters or lovers it will have.
Gameplay is clearly perfect for such kind of game. There is nothing more you could need, even though your imagination will make you think of riding a dragon and going wherever you want into its world, or putting new technology into this game, or even dinosaur enemies will be great, but this is just a very deep imagination which can't really be made with just a simple click and there is a lot of time to be spent on that, so don't think that the developers themselves didn't think about it. What this game gives is exceptionally good as a gameplay, even though there are some obvious bad collisions and the player sometimes moves like every block and not into a fluid system, exactly as the old games did. You can upgrade your character, buy/sell stuff, use magic, potions, traps, ballistas, or whatever medieval thing you might think of. The models looked so real, that you will feel the power of the dragon and its fired breathing from his mouth. If you want my personal opinion though, I really like those kind of games, but this one was very complex and had a lot of stuff, you might not expect, like getting formulas for your potions in order to make one.
Overall, this game is a must for those who think that they are into complex games and want a lot of possibilities on every aspect. For those who want an open world, I won't recommend it, but you might enjoy this game anyway. Have fun playing it and see you next time!
