9.5 - The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Review

Before I start this review, I have to say: who had ever heard of CD Projekt Red before The Witcher? Moreover, who had ever heard of the series’ creator, Andrzej Sapkowski, before his fantasy series made it big on the PC platform? I originally made the transition to the PC platform for the sake of the numerous FPS and RPG titles that never made it to console.

Can't believe you played all these games on PC, your computer must be a monster.

And the same lower.

Its gameranking is under 90 and a metacritic of exactly 90 (they dont include all reviews like gameranking)

If we are going for reviews it would be a race between pokemon and portal

@ faster

grow up dude. We are talking game of the year here. I am being as objective as possible and only looking at objective links and sources. .

If we are going by reviews its pokemon and portal. If we are going by sales its pokemon and portal. Whatever criteria you want.

i agree for now....but i think skyrim is gonna top it in my opinion.....but till november 11th im a witcher addict

Getting this for sure when it releases for PS3. Has much critical acclaim.

skyrim will be a longer, larger game, but more generic. The witcher 2 is very exotic, very unique, very deep

skyrim will be freaking awesome and i fully plan to spend 150 hours in it and purchases the collectors edition(for pc of course)

but the graphics and uniqueness will pale in comparison to The Witcher 2

So far, without question The Witcher 2 is GOTY

Very Very difficult to choose between Witcher 2 and Portal 2. The graphics, the total playtime, and the fact that i love rpgs should totally tilt the balance in favor of TW2, but Portal 2 is an amazing achievement in gaming. When i finished the sp and finally got out of that facility, it was a warm feeling of freedom which i only experienced once before when i saw shawshank, but cranked up several levels. And then the co op was just plain fun. I think its the innovation and the fact that its different from every other game on the market that gets you. But the fact that TW2 matched that experience head on really says a lot about it. Overall i would say they're equal in my book and go down as one of the greatest games of this generation along with uncharted 2, World of goo(yes its brilliant!) and bioshock. And by this generation, i mean the post half life 2 era :p
