    SImply Awesome!

    Rated on April 01, 2008 by tmg1276

    This game just rocks! if there isn't an expansion pack in development that is just a crime. This game is so good I went and bought the book that the game is based on. I am a little disappointed that...

    This may very well be the best game I have ever played. At least since the Baldur's Gate series.

    Choices, choices everywhere. The Witcher does nearly everything right, with only a few minor flaws from making this a perfectr game. It has the click-action of Diablo, but with chained attacks if yo...

    For starters if I wouldn't review this game professionaly then I would give the game an instant 10/10. The game has an interesting story where nothing is what it seems and with lot's of replay poss...

    Drawbacks to this otherwise awesome game

    Rated on February 14, 2012 by torasilver

    The main drawback was the attacking skill wasn't fast enough. Sword techniques could be better. The recharge of his hand signs were also too slow. I would have liked to see more expansions to this gam...

    Fun and addictive

    Rated on February 19, 2012 by limraz

    In my opinion a good intro movie is a sign that the devs loved their work. I was right before and I`m glad i did, finally, play The witcher 1. A rich story, based on Sapkowski novels which I never got...

    The Witcher may be a competent, original RPG...but it's sure not the gem in the rough that many make it out to be.

    Rated on April 07, 2008 by TheShadowDawn

    On the plus side: - Generally originally story, environments and gameplay...things that RPG games usually fail spectacularly at and deliver the same old stuff that's been done a million times befor...

    The best RPG in years

    Rated on April 04, 2008 by LanDC77

    The Witcher goes back to the old syle CRPG form, but with a lot of new stuff thrown in to mix things up. The Witcher is made from an unknown Polish software company CD Project Red, and on there 1st ga...

    This game is worth playing.<br />

    Rated on June 18, 2013 by netsol2

    Every so often, a game comes along that reminds us why we game. The Witcher has reminded me not only of why I game, but also why I do it on the PC and not consoles. That being said, my favorite game o...

    I was really disappointed with this game. Boring storyline, complicated interface, and just uninteresting overall.

    Rated on April 08, 2008 by WarPrime

    Unfortunately I did not get far enough into the game to give it the full review that most hard core players expect. The game sounded interesting when I hear about it, and a friend recommended it af...
