In terms of gameplay, W2 is a simple action game with a complex character development system underneath it. As a Witcher, Geralt is adept with both blade and magic, cutting down foes with steel or switching to any of his several spells (along with bombs...

While Mac gamers frequently have to wait a substantial amount of time to see AAA games arrive on the platform, the delay is sometimes a gift. Such is the case with The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition. We're now free to enter this dark,...

The Enhanced Edition of The Witcher 2 offers high-quality new content that most fans would happily have paid for - and it offers it for free. That, combined with the cumulative fixes of almost a year's worth of post-release development, makes this the...

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings was a great game that didn't get the sort of recognition it could have because it was a PC exclusive. However, now the game gets to show itself off to console gamers with The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced...

The monster slayer speaks to the soldier with quiet confidence. He signals with his fingers, his yellow eyes shine, and the soldier reveals his secrets without the slayer ever needing to unsheathe his sword. The witcher is gifted for his patience, and...

Al met al is de Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition een fantastisch spel, maar zeker niet geschikt voor iedereen. Het verhaal komt wat traag op gang en het overgrote deel van de tijd besteedt u aan het praten met mensen en het navigeren door...

Fantasialajityyppi on kaikessa mielenkiintoisuudessaankin yleensä melko kaavoihinsa kangistunutta ja aloitekyvytöntä touhua. Samat rodut, juonikuviot, ympäristöt ja ilmapiiri tuntuvat kulkevan pelistä toiseen, kun Tolkienin ja Grigsbyn viitoittamalta...

Un scénario et une mise en scène de grande qualité, des graphismes beaux à pleurer, une bande son exceptionnelle et une jouabilité aux petits oignons, tous les superlatifs ne sont pas de trop pour décrire The Witcher 2. La version Enhanced Edition...

Du är Geralt av Rivia, en Witcher, en muterad monstermördare med Wolverine-komplex. Eller, med andra ord: du är Geralt av Rivia, en hipster, en irriterande enstöring som bara vill bli...

De som ikke har vært borti The Witcher 2 før kan se frem til et magisk eventyr man sent vil glemme. Den mørke fantasiverdenen er noe en hver rollespiller burde oppleve. Spillet er godt regissert, og selv om dette går litt på bekostning av spillerens...
