It's a great game but with a better publisher and localization Witcher could have been much more successfull commercially.

Hum, I'm not sure that it could have been much more successful comercialy just because of a better localization. But it sure would have been more successful if instead of beying developed by CDProject published by ATARI it read in the publicity "new game by Bethesda/Bioware!!!".
