    Difficult to critique a game with so much good going on.

    As you might be aware of by now, the witcher games are based on the novels by Sapkowski of the same name and borrows from the world, mythology, characters and the backstory. Even though they claim the games take place a... Read Full Review

    Less, yet more

    If you have only played the third installment and are wondering if you should check out this one, the answer is "definitely yes". Graphics-wise, the difference is not that great, the mechanics are more or less the same, ... Read Full Review

    A game that deserved more prominence.

    In 2007 was released The Witcher game based on the books of Andrzej Sapkowski Wiedzmin (which was translated as Witcher), and the company that made the game was CD Projekt Red, a company that made an ambitious game even ... Read Full Review

    The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings

    In honour of The Witcher 3’s release this week, Steam was frankly giving away the first two titles in the The Witcher series, and to have refused their kind offer would have been worse than slapping them in the fac... Read Full Review

    Not as good as the other, yet a truly entertaining RPG.

    The second iteration of The Witcher is impressive through the graphics, but sadly is not as good as the first. The story seems a little shallow, but regardless of this thing, the game is brilliant. The combat system is ... Read Full Review

    Not so bad

    Game is good though some misses. Story is good! Reminds of Game of Thrones series. Gameplay could have been better. But all in all, the game is awesome! They should add more sword fight moves and more abilities to use as... Read Full Review

    Overrated

    I'm baffled at the score this game gets. I just picked it up on Steam for 4 EUR, thinking I might just check out what the fuss was all about. I had played the first Witcher game, but was quite disappointed with the game-... Read Full Review
