The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Review - JPS

CD Projekt and Atari are here with the follow-up to one of the best CRPG’s ever made, The Witcher 2. This particular series is based upon a group of short stories written by polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski. The original Witcher game was released on October 30th 2007. The game was successful enough to warrant a console port that was eventually axed called The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf.

Sounds like an awesome game! Too bad my PC is as old as the dinosaurs lol.

Well that sucks. I wonder if there's a demo. I want to know how my GTX 260 + 4GB DDR2 + Q8400 CPU will hold up!

I think so. My 5670 is running the game on med-high with minor issues.

What specs do you have Kon?

Well, at least I know one thing for sure: judging from the screenshots and gameplays that I've seen lately, my computer won't run it at max settings!

I built this thing somewhere between December 2008-Feb 2009. Maybe it's time to do some upgrades.

it'll run it just fine at 1600x900 or maybe 1440 with a GTX 260 + 4GB DDR2 + Q8400 CPU

you will need to drop the shadow res down a bit and turn off some of the DoF effects, everything else on high!

it will still, at those settings, look better than ANYTHING on any console and 90% of other pc games!

Beautiful game, deep, complex, sexy!

There doesn't seem to be a demo available for me to download and try on my PC but I suppose it'll run smoothly if I the settings are somewhere in the middle settings. I'd have to play around with the settings to see what I can get. Either way, I'm confident it'll be better than the best consoles can offer these days.

I'll definitely get a copy of this game off Steam!
