The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings - Enhanced Edition, the award-winning PC RPG comes to Xbox 360!

The player is Geralt of Rivia, a professional monster slayer, a witcher. Entangled in the political turmoil that engulfed Temeria, Geralt helped quell the rebellion of the Order of the Flaming Rose. Soon after, he saved King Foltest's life when the monarch was attacked by a witcher-like assassin. He continues to protect the king, serving as his bodyguard as Foltest strives to bring peace to his kingdom. The Order's last bastions have yielded to the royal army, yet one more task remains - the Baroness La Valette announced her secession from the realm, and her fortress must be taken. A month after the attempted assassination, Foltest's armies stand at the gates of La Valette Castle, preparing for a final assault. Still at Foltest's side, Geralt is among them, unable to begin his personal quest to discover the mysterious assassin's origin and identity...

 A must-have for hardcore RPG fans!

The Witcher 2 revitalises some classic RPG aspects as it sets Geralt of Rivia out on an adventure to solve the mystery of the assassins of kings. The storyline is in-depth and, unlike other modern RPGs, the dialogue sequences are interesting and fun. The combat is very challenging and a bit 'clunky' to begin with, but is extremely rewarding when you master it. You will find yourself being killed a few times towards the start of the game, but when you get to grips with the combat system you will find fights progressively more fun. The only downside to the game is the longevity - including side quests it will take around 30-40 hours to complete. However there are achievements and new challenges on the 'dark' difficulty mode, including 3 new sets of cursed armour which will prove difficult to get hold of. Overall, I would recommend this game to the majority of RPG fans, but beware it is not for the light-hearted; and will prove frustrating at the beginning but if you stick it out you will have one of the best RPG experiences of the year.

 An upgrade on the typical RPG experience

| | See all MisterontheThames's reviews (3)

The game has 8 possible endings and to see them all would require you to play at least 3 times. The game takes a step away from the RPG scene where you define you character to an exclusive class or type. In Witcher 2 you are required to invest talents as you level up so that you can anticipate the next skirmish or quest. Bombs and traps form an integral part of the game. However, your best to invest in one solid path rather then become a jack of all trades.

 Like a Movie

The Witcher 2 is one of the best RPG i played. The game is based most around the story where the player is playing the hero (Geralt of Rivia) and will be searching for the kings assassin. From there on you will be teleported into this beautiful world like a movie and will investigate how and why all this happened to you. The graphism is stunning as much as the sound atmosphere or the music design but this is not a free roam game but never the less the few maps are big and a lot to explore...Quests with characters environments and even weapons and items are all designed to fit the story rather than the other way around. The quests for example arent of the (kill this many of monster x for a bounty) variety. The contracts you take require you to fight and study the beasts until you unlock the necessary knowledge of how to get rid of them for good from there you typically must create a special trap or perform an action unique to that quest. Crafting is designed to work with the fiction as well requiring Geralt to obtain blueprints then collect mundane components like twine and raw metal in addition to the epic components like troll skin. This makes crafting extremely expensive or time consuming at times but it makes the process much more immersive and the reward that much more gratifying. The game have alternate endings depending on player choices throughout the story. I was happy to discover was that the game can be played through two completely different campaigns depending on some choices and that the end game differences are much more substantial than (character x is your friend instead of character y because you took his side.) Not to spoil too much but key characters can be killed kingdoms can be shifted and the information you know about your opponents is all different based on how you play. You may not even meet some characters and you certainly wont know the secrets behind many events unless you play the game through again from the alternate perspective. Bear in mind these arent good/evil decisions either. The developers do a great job making each option in the scenarios seem valid and there was never a clear solution to any given problem I faced. In combat you carry a silver sword to slay monsters and an iron sword to kill men because thats the way a Witcher fights. Potions can only be drunk prior to combat when Geralt is in meditation mode. Why? Because Geralt does all his preparations prior to battle so the gamer plays by the same constraints. I personally found myself completely absorbed by the game world and my place in it. Civilians occasionally insulted Geralt mutant nature and I began to take offense. Going into battle I started to think ahead and plan reading up on the types of monsters I will be facing rather than just jumping into combat. There are occasional breaks from this perspective as you see events through another partys eyes but for the most part you live the life of Geralt of Rivia. The story is very dark with clear themes of racism/rape/genocide ect... in many of the subplots. The characters tend to be rather vulgar but not necessarily in an immature way it comes across that they are more coarse than immature and the dialogue tends to fit well with the oppressive atmosphere of the game world. As you can probably tell from the above points I really loved The Witcher 2 but it is not without its flaws. There are no changes on the controller if you dont like original setup. The interface is a bit difficult at time to manage or some stupid fact like you cant swim but overall this is a beautiful game for a more mature audience than the button bashing kind of game.

 Exceptional Title

For a relatively unknown company this is leagues better than alot of mainstream RPG's. I actually bought this on the PC when it was first released based off the original trailer and i wasnt disappointed. I have played alot of the modern RPG games but this is definitely one of my favourites.
It is definitely a worth addition to any collection.

 It's really not all that

Repetitive gameplay, overly simplified combat mechanics, dull side missions and blocky graphics. The choice of storylines is a nice touch, but your choices only have a limited effect on the game (unlike say in ME3 where individual characters respond to you differently) and they play out in a rather linear manner. Skyrim / Dragon Ages / Mass Effect 3 this game is not. And I had such high hopes too :o(
