BeefJack: "The Witcher 2 is a blockbuster of a game, both in a good and bad way: visually spectacular, often exciting, but much less intelligent than it wants you to think."
The same site which gave Dragon Age 2 a 9.2. I rest my case :p. IMO the witcher 2 is a 9 at the very least.
look what they gave dragon age 2! a 9.2 o_O? - http://beefjack.com/reviews... They are officially discredited in my book!
Website owned by Lionhead would only give that crap a 9.5. This does not discredit these dumbasses then nothing will. http://beefjack.com/reviews...
Each of these reviews was written by a different person. Reviews are based on a person's individual experience of a game. Different people have different opinions. Their opinions will sometimes differ from your own. How is this still unknown to the majority of people?
@ MonkJammas And you didn't heard that sites has only one person as director ? Sory any real review with DA2 score at 9.2 or 9.5 for fable 3 is bought. DA2 is abomination of RPG. Any real RPG gamer who played DA2 think the same way. Reused locations are only tip of iceberg. FAble 3 is a good game in my opinion but 9.5 ? REally ? Sory no good reviewer will give fable 3 9.5 ! Witcher 2 on other hand is praised on forums to point where people playing witcher have hard times to back to DA2 or any other newer RPG.
yeah that review is idiotic. cons: -Lacks real depth.... LOL -Bugs, glitches and bad design decisions -0Story, characters and writing are disappointing... another LOL. DA2 characters in comparition to witcher2 are like dolls without emontions and any agood dialogue lines..
Wow, really? I could barely finish that repetitive piece of shit.
This is the worst review score I've seen for this game, and it still gets an 8! I really need to upgrade my PC!
The reviewer is off. The game is fantastic and richly cared for. You can really appreciate the effort that ceo put into the title (from soup to nuts). This game is a truly a uncompromising giant in the rpg realm. Just beat the game last night (50+ hour) with only half the missions completed and several story paths untouched. The site should do a counter review in a few weeks to maintain its credibility. Much love to console and pc hammers!!! Sent this from my phone - forgive any typos.
Wow.... " my typos are strong with this one..." ceo= CDP Hammers= Gamers
Yeah i can play the game on low settings but hmmm i dont wanna complete it until i beef up my pc.
no less than 9 sorry...
The Witcher 2 is a great game and deserves a much higher score!
I bet that reviewer don't even know what is RPG game and how to play it ... :P
Guys, let's not ruin this game with too much fanboyism ...
Exactly.. Suddenly an 8 is a bad score..
IT's a good score. but this is same case as giving 7 to Shadow of Collosus. IS 7 a good score ? Yes. 8 for witcher 2 isn't right. Game is simply like miracle for RPG gamers. Rich story, rich dialog, v. good combat, astonishing graphic and even better art direction. Art direction in that game is making any new RPG and not only RPG inferior by a yard stick. Almost everything looks like handcrafted. No resused locations or buildings. Armors look like armors not like WoW madness. This is on medium with textres on lower (2 lowest out of 5 overall) on 1270x720 without AA with half of effects. http://farm6.static.flickr.... http://farm6.static.flickr.... http://farm4.static.flickr.... http://farm4.static.flickr.... http://farm4.static.flickr.... game screams quality.
The most accurate score this game has had. Solid game, lacks depth, specially the combat.
Well seeing as how the reviewer mentions events from the first game are pursued in the sequel I call bullshit. Geralt is actually trying to recover what happened to him from the books. In the first game he has no idea and has lost his memory. In the sequel you find out about yennefer who was in the books not the first game. Then he gives it points off for a false fact he puts in the review. There are also grammatical errors and words missing from the review. 8 is not a bad score but it is obvious he never played the first game, which is fine but just preface the review by stating that. Don't pretend you did then make a statement which clearly indicates you did not play nor understand anything from the first game. I say this game deserves an 8.5 pre patches. Once the games bugs are ironed out then I would give it a 9.5. This reviewer sounds like an idiot bc they mistate a lot of things and provide false info. If I wanted a fox news spin id watch that garbage.
The reviewer goes on to say "Lay Off Dragon Age 2". He's some kind of crying bioware fanboy. He gve DA2 a 9.2, and the Witcher is much better. Don't know how a jerk like this can be considered 'pro',
Fable 3 9.5 totally seals it. Its not a question of us being fanboys. he is!
Those three games were reviewed by three separate people. Of those games, this reviewer only reviewed The Witcher 2.
However, it’s the same site. Each review (reviewer) is an extension of the review site. We don’t track independent reviewers like contractors; we follow, track and judge the review sites. The praise and criticism goes both ways.
@dc1 - Sure, I understand that viewpoint. Blokey above claimed he reviewed all three, though.
Witcher 2 is unfortunate to not have a big publisher behind it who can feed free copies to these reviewers.Look! Most are saying this is the best rpg in quite a while,but giving it 9 whereas DA2 scored 10s with so many cons.Beefjack is out from my book of reviewers.
ah thx for the facts, i shouldn't believe all i hear!
