It's a good story-driven RPG. It seems some love it and some hate it. I loved it and would say it's definitely worth a playthrough.

Lol ditto to never played it. But from what people tell me, its similar to oblivion, but is on the darker side of things.:rockout:
The only thing the two share in common is the midevil setting and they can both be loosely categorized as RPGs. They are completely different games in virtually every way.

Played & Completed, one of the best RPGS i've ever played, the game is amazing and is just rather different from most RPGS i've played, alot more mature and darker, seems how the world actuley would be if there was other races, tbh it's already happened.

But yeah, defintley worth a playthrough if your into RPGS even just a little ;)

The Witcher is a great game with a good story and is nothing like OB really. The games built on the NWN1 game engine.

The only issue i had with it is the camera would not stay were i put it although i enjoyied playing it all the way though and been thinking of playing it though again but being evil all the way though this time.


Make sure you get the EE version as that will save you from downloading a massive patch for it and i did hear more people had issue's with the none EE version with update.

Meh, mixed thoughts on it here. The intro was absolutely amazing, story seems good, game play and graphics are just okay.

The camera was my main issue but once you get used to it the game way playable. The camera will follow the char so if you have it set to 45 deg left of the char and start moving forword it makes the camera go behind him.

Thats why people should read in depth reviews as whats good for one sucks for the other as i thought game play was very good along with the story ( The book would of bored me lol ) and as for the graphics they did shine time to time but made me think what happens to game like NWN1 were the game engine for NWN2 is no were near as good IMO. Which makes it to me a hell better game than games like Crysis is\was or games a like.

If you don't mind reading try the demo for Drakensang seemed pretty good to. shame they did not add full english to the text as they did with there own native language.

I hated the combat when I first tried it, but after giving it a second chance, I like it. Story is mainly what drives it.

you can switch from isometric view to over the shoulder view. that way, the camera always follows behind you. also, gets you close on the action. ^_^

I did not want to start a new thread.

I just purchased this game. The Enhanced edition that is. With the latest 1.5 patch + the director's cut patch, this game is pretty awesome to say the least.

Not all great games are made in the US btw.

Such glowing reviews with no mention of the various common game breaking bugs....stuttering frames (not low frame rate or frame rate spikes) being the main culpritt the forced me to stop playing what could be an excellent game.

Get the latest enhanced edition as it is supposed to have alleviated all those problems. I played the original unpatched version and had no problems what-so-ever, smooth as silk, but you're not alone in those problems, however they should be fixed at this point.

You generally don't have to register a game to play it. Actually, I can't think of any retails games off the top of my head that did require registering. The only ones that do are from digital download sites.

To install the EE patch you do, unless there is a workaround I am missing? I have resorted to playing fallout 3 to get some rpg lovin :cool:
