More Different Than Alike: Witcher 2. vs. Skyrim
If you loved Skyrim but didn't catch The Witcher 2, you should try it now--not because it's more of the same, but because it's a stimulating contrast. Here are five reasons why.

Nice,this is one of the other reasons why I wish I got a Xbox instead of a Ps3 but I do hope they put in on the Ps3 though and I DO hope that in the next Bethesda Elder Scrolls they take a little nudity learning from The Witcher 2 ;D
@X-RS Hes posted it many times before (well lots of slightly different versions of it), and before that a bunch of other annoying comments...therefore not epic IMO
witcher2 is better game than skyrim but again skyrim is longer (same old dungeons, kill this deliver that type of quest) and more fun (mods)
I felt witcher-2 is great than skyrim in every way but when it comes to overall experience i still love skyrim more than witcher-2,I don't know why.
Thing that differentiates them is that Bethesda dosen't need to spend a year making a fully polished and rendered game trailer just to reel people in. Bethesda just needs to create an in-game trailer and you're hooked. Because of that they did also do a real-filmed trailer. That's the way to do it Bethesda!
@moremoneythanu Seriously, you are back again? just using a different user name this time...how can trolling be that entertaining???
"The Xbox version is going to look better than the minimum settings on the PC," senior producer Tomasz Gop told Eurogamer. "Don't hold my word for this, but the goal we have right now is to be close to the medium specs of the PC version." EDIT: and i do believe they were hyping it up, for marketing reasons. you understand.
I want to import my dark souls character into the Witcher 2. I wonder how those monsters would fair against a ninja flipping around in full havel's armor and a +15 Katana.
please CD project, stay true to your self and stay away from EA and Activision and soon you will be my favorite studio.
The Witcher 2 is one of the better games I've ever played. CDproject is an amazing studio. Xbox gamers are in for a treat.
Always wanted to play this and the 1st game but don't have a good enough computer to run it. I'm super stoked for this game can't wait!
It's more akin to Mass Effect than to Elders Scrolls or even Dragon Age. It's a wonderful RPG with choices that actually change the world.
i hadn't played an RPG before and i can't say how lucky i was to play this game as of my first RPG experience. Best game ever!
@sleepnsurf Am playing mass effect 3 on ps3 right now. Dunno what you are talking about? As for skyrim, don't want it. Its way too unfocused for my liking though some people enjoy it. Really love these witcher and demon soul kind of fantasy games. Ps3 is okey and not as bad in multiplatforms as some might think. Never came across an unplayable game. Though xbox is marginally better. But looses on exclusives so both are equal. Unless you love kinect.guess its getting more exclusives this year than halos and gears and all.
Definitely getting this game. Always in the mood for a morally ambiguous plot and challenging gameplay.
oooh wat do i spy in this video at 1:46 ..did the white haired cat eyed badass personality just scrath his bottom :P ... game developers are soo evil :D
An interesting game where game play should be challenging. Hope its not as hard as Dark Souls. Wondering why PC clips were used for the console version. Is it just a come on, hoping to sell more games to the young set.
@vaibhavp Mass Effect 3 and Skyrim can barely play on the PS3. Why would you even want this for it? I own ME3 on PS3 and it is atrocious. I Should have went 360 on it. Oh and Skyrim? Not even going there. I love my PS3 but there are things it just is not suited for, like anything non-exclusive.
Please give us a ps3 version. No wait give us both witcher and witcher 2 on a disc. Then charge us 100$ i dont mind.
@Stealth_Knight_ Zero originality? Have you ever tried playing this game?? Give me an example which a game doesn't allow you using potions mid fight? Having a different chapter 2 based on your decisions on act 1? (non linearity)? Pixel boobs and a story based on a Polish book??
6. Development on The Witcher 2 was actually completed BEFORE it was released. 7. The Witcher 2 isn't a buggy train-wreck requiring 8 patches before becoming somewhat playable.
Seriously, Skyrim is out of Witcher's league! This game benefits from the background history of several best-selling books. Not to mention the level of graphic details in PC, made consoles look rediculous. I feel sorry for those poor people who'll have to play this on Xbox.
@Slash_out This game here in Poland is a bit cheaper :D Enchanced edition for around 30 bucks. And Dark Edition costs like a normal edition game from US.
The Witcher universe uses the european dark ages as the main inspiration as well as political plots and twists that are amazingly well connected and fantasy........The witcher's universe isn't about killing monsters, it is about war, love, lust, sacrifice, a world in which everybody especially the protagonist looks for a place in which he can fit , subjugation, revenge, hate , knights and thieffs, elves and humans, politics , conflicts , assassins, monsters that have a story, not everything is as you think it is , it isn't white or black it isn't evil or good it is a world where a monster can be good and a human can be rotten to the bone and so on........It is a dark world and a harsh one too.....
@Angel_Grigorov To Japan, most everywhere west of asia is the West and usually Europe is lumped in with America as "Western Culture".
CDprojekt is a great company. I got my pc version drm-free. The updates are all free. And best of all. They made me pay the right price in $. Instead of magically transforming 39$ into 39 euro which can't ve said for every freaking publisher. Now they managed to make the futur update for free for console gamers (microsoft usually doesn't let people do that). And the port seems of great quality. Cdprojekt rock !
