Review (Summary from Zavvi)

The Witcher represents the pinnacle of storytelling in role-playing games, shattering the line between good and evil with a world where moral ambiguity reigns. In a beautiful, rich game universe created by artists first, technology second, the player becomes his own hero in an epic, action-packed narrative uniquely defined by his actions. Returning to the roots of the role-playing genre with a fresh and modern approach, The Witcher emphasizes story and character development in a vibrant world, while incorporating tactically-deep real-time combat like no game before it.

Immersed in a vivid but harsh fantasy world, the player assumes the role of a white-haired witcher named Geralt, a renowned monster-slayer-for-hire and master swordsman with superhuman strength and reflexes. While trying to regain his lost memory, Geralt unwillingly becomes involved in a world-shaking power struggle. Created to provide entertainment for both fans of role-playing games and those seeking fast-paced action, The Witcher brings together epic storytelling and dynamic, visually stunning, and tactically deep action.

Geralt of Rivia: a one-of-a-kind protagonist.

A charismatic and unique character, Geralt is a mutant swordmaster and professional monster slayer.

Choose from over 250 special abilities correlated to attributes, combat skills and magical powers to build the character in a way best suited to tactical needs and style of play.

Original fantasy world drawn from literature.

Inspired by the writings of renowned Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski.

Featuring adult themes, less fairy-tale than typical fantasy, with mature social issues like racism, political intrigue and genocide.

It is a harsh world where nothing is black or white, right or wrong, often forcing players to choose between the lesser of two evils to advance.

Non-linear and captivating storyline.

Full of turns, twists and ambiguous moral decisions which have real impact on the storyline.

All quests can be accomplished in several ways and the game has three different endings depending on the player's actions and choices throughout the adventure.

Visually stunning tactical action.

Engage in complex yet intuitive real-time combat based on real medieval sword-fighting techniques.

Motion capture performed by medieval fighting experts at Frankfurt's renowned Metric Minds studio, resulting in 600 spectacular and authentic in-game combat animations.

Six combat styles, dozens of potions, complex alchemy system, modifiable weapons and powerful magic add tactical depth to the fluid real-time experience.

Set in a medieval fantasy realm, players take control of a travelling monster hunter in this game adaptation of a book by the same name.

The player fills the shoes of Geralt, a legendary monster slayer also known as a Witcher. Unfortunately for him, Geralt has been afflicted by amnesia and he knows neither friend nor foe and must relearn his abilities. The Witchers are a dying breed and Geralt is faced with not only the challenge of slaying all manner of beast but also wrestling with his conscience. The decisions the player makes on his behalf will directly impact how the game will play out.

The player will work their way through the visually impressive fantasy world using a combination of swordplay and sorcery. Abilities can be enhanced by the creation of potions, the recipes of which can be discovered or created via experimentation. Be warned, however: drinking a potion of ones own concoction could have undesired effects.

With the potential for conflict at every turn the player must guide Geralt through this tumultuous world and return him to the powerful monster hunter he once was.

Set in a medieval fantasy realm, players take control of a travelling monster hunter in this game adaptation of a book by the same name.

I shall give you heat sir! Very good dark fantasy RPG, far better than Dragon Age Origins in my opinion (found it a disappointment.) I bought the original on the cheap and bought the extended edition for the extras; definitely one of the better rehashes. It's only flaw is the kinda rubbish control scheme.

It's one of my favourite RPGs of recent years and definitely worth giving a look for this price.

I would definitely recommend downloading the patches and Enhanced Edition content. The developer (CDProjekt Red) really did put a lot of effort into this game after release so the additional content is definitely worth getting, and unlike many recent games, they released it for free.
