GameInformer- Witcher 2 Review: Brilliant Dark Fantasy Adventure Is Just As Good On Console

GameInformer- "There are very few differences between playing this on 360 or a high-end PC. The graphical gap is noticeable but trivial, load times are short and infrequent on both, and the game plays equally well on mouse/keyboard and gamepad. Several complaints I had about the original – horrid inventory management, punishing early difficulty, targeting problems – have been patched away since launch, and those improvements are incorporated here (thus the slightly higher score).

The few flaws I take issue with should in no way discourage anyone from playing this fantastic, unique RPG. So long as they’re over 18, anyway, because this is the most deserving M rating I’ve ever personally played through."

I take it you played it on pc to judge? Either way I think it looks fantastic, can't wait to play it.

twice on the pc

disgaea 3 is the better enhanced port that releases on the same day. It makes this one look lazy

LightofDarkness2198d ago

It's better than most of the games they give 9.5s to. And I think most people would certainly find it better than Disgaea 3, which is just a half decent JRPG.

"disgaea 3 is the better enhanced port that releases on the same day. It makes this one look lazy"

Not sure if serious?

I usually agree with GameInformers reviews.

The concensus amound the press is not in your favor "Crap-turtle". But to each his own.

RXL2198d ago

So it's not 9.5 good because another game is better than it, you say?

what kind of thinking is that?

Uncharted 3 doesn't deserve the 9's and 10's it gets because Uncharted 2 is a better game!

ssa way thinking...

LightofDarkness2198d ago

"ssa way thinking..."

Why have I not seen this before? Well done.

*tips hat for you catching it*

Interesting that the Xbox 360 version got a higher rating than the PC version got from them.

LightofDarkness2198d ago

The 360 version is a better game on release. While the PC version now has all of the extra content (as well as better graphics, obviously), the review build just wasn't really the same game.

The game now has Dark Mode, Arena Mode, much tighter controls, myriad bug fixes, better combat and a more fleshed out 3rd Act, so they've certainly been busy with this one, and the extra polish certainly bumps this game's score up a notch. Not to mention the technical difficulty of bringing such a demanding game to a nearly 7 year old console.

caboose322198d ago

Yea if you read the article you would know why.

They said it's because the game was sort of broken on release, and since then most problems have already been fixed on PC, and also on xbox, so it's a better game now.
