Setup: Nothing screams 'gritty fantasy' like a combination of boobs and regional British accents. Yes, the Witcher 2 certainly has a lot of grime on offer, including a surprisingly stealthy, dark jailbreak sequence set early on in the game. After being accused of the high crime of kingslaying (let's all give him a hand) player character Geralt of Rivia is tossed into a grimey, old-timey dungeon, and tasked with luring each of his guards to their doom.
The escape: Fortunately for Geralt, they've only managed to clap him in irons here--which according the laws of Hollywood screenwriting must burst open at the first sign of any potential escape. Ok, ok, so maybe he was slipped a key, but considering his arms were completely akimbo at the time, it's tough to tell how exactly he used it. Long story short, Geralt can either sweet talk or intimidate his captors into unlocking his cell, before unleashing a whole bunch of punches to their mushy, pockmarked faces. Next up is a veritable gauntlet of guards, none of whom look too happy to see the old white wolf, assuming of course that they can see him. Geralt's little adventure even features a wee bit of outside assistance, as Shilard Fitz-Oesterlen, a wily ambassador turns up to offer some much needed misdirection.
