    Best game I have played this year. It's awesome. Geralt FTW

    I don't think many people would have a wife or girlfriend as sexy as Triss Merrigold.

    Hopefully the ending has the option for a fourth color.

    I literally laughed out loud

    Nice review, Lorenzo. Forgive me for being picky, but I did find it strange that you said the graphics weren't as good as Gears of War. To me, it makes more sense to draw comparisons with games in the same genre, since Gears is an extremely linear six-hour game with a severely smaller color pallet. Compared to other western RPGs like Dragon Age 2, Mass Effect 3, and Skyrim, I'd say Witcher 2 looks much better. But that's just my take on it, all the best. :)

    He's comparing graphics, not games. Graphics don't need to be compared within a specific genre; that would be silly.

    Glad to have justification of my pre-order. Also, it's amazing how many pretentious assholes are taking up the forums here these days. Quit bashing the reviewers and writers for their opinions/articles. If you don't like how they write and review, go to another website or make one yourself. Anyone can sit behind a computer screen and bitch, if you want to complain, back your words up and start doing things yourself. But anyway, thanks for the review as always!

    Doesn't hold a candle to Skyrim. And for the record, only kids care about 'adult scenes'. The rest of us could care less - adds nothing.

    It's a rather different beast than Skyrim. Both games have things they have going for them and do things better and different than the other game. Skyrim has a large open world while The Witcher 2 is more story focused with branching storylines. I love both games but I personally had The Witcher 2 as my 2011 RPG of the Year, just barely edging out Skyrim.

    I respect your opinion soley based on your avatar.

    *couldn't care less Or do you actually care somewhat, and are reserving your drop to "couldn't care less" for some future slight or shortcoming? ;-)

    I thought this was a good review but i just bought a pc so ill be picking up the pc version Also off topic Mr. Lorenzo, would you be offended if i said your picture looks like mark wahlberg? (Spelling?)
  • KnowYourPokemon - April 13, 2012 12:06 p.m.

    PC version is getting all these updates for free anyways and it's also cheaper. Even with the enhanced edition I would still recommend anyone with a PC that can handle it buy it for PC.
  • ObliqueZombie - April 13, 2012 9:04 a.m.

    Looks like I'll be getting this on my Gaming PC when I get it in the next few weeks. Let's just hope I can run it as well as others.

    Put your settings on Ultra, then go advanced and disable ubersampling and SSAO. Those two things seem to be what really stresses out most people's machines. I'm sure you'll run it silky smooth after that, but if not, just lower your AA settings a bit. Also, keep an eye out on Steam and on release day. They will probably have some kind of sale for The Witcher 2, probably 50% but at least 25% off. Then you can revel in the fact that you paid less for the best version, and your transformation into a PC elitist will be one step closer to completion.

    HAHAHA, I may be playing PC, but I'll never forget my consoles. :P I'll just be... well, playing it more often, and, well... I guess my conversion is slowly happening. That said, thanks for the tips, and if it's not running as well as I'd like to, I'll come back to this comment for reference.
  • Net_Bastard - April 16, 2012 8:43 a.m.

    Yep, that's exactly what I said. Now my consoles are collecting dust and I just upgraded my graphics card for the first time.
  • db1331 - April 16, 2012 8:59 a.m.

    It felt good, didn't it?
  • Karamsoul - April 13, 2012 8:54 a.m.

    Mr. Reviewer, it's "your" and not "you're"... :)

    "You'll hate The slow burn of combat while you find your barrings" The English teacher in me notices that it should be spelled "bearings".
