    Gave up on it before the first boss fight was over. Problems with the combat controls and I dint rebind the keys like in TW3. Also: Quicktime crap - I simply didn't bother to invest some work into the bindings to see more of that cancerr.

    There are mods to improve the graphics, which doesn't make look that bad

    Well again, this is a controller-centric scheme, there is no point trying to do that with a kb+mouse that would be an exercise in frustration. The 2nd game is fantastic looking (and taxing on graphic cards btw), and the story is really gripping. The 1st boss fight reminds of God of War style huge bosses and it's not so difficult actually. I like the effort they made into making the combat interesting vs just point & click (which was what everyone was complaining about the 1st one)...

    I beat both games with mouse and keyboard (on hardest), never had much problem with the controls really.

    I bought it from the bargain bin, so my threshold to ditch wasn't that high. Overall it wasn't too bad except for the UI. But it REALLY annoyed me gathering all the stuff clogging up the inventory when you don't know if you'd ever need it and have no chest to dump it. Was already annoyed by that when I did an escort mission and then enemies spawned in my back, right next to the escortee and that was that. Don't need crap like that at all.

    TW2 did a lot better overall, well until they put me in a 9x9 room with the assassin and basically no room to dodge or breathe some of the combat moves. After that stupid hydra kraken thing which I had to look up how to do it (I was trying to hack all the arms loike it`s been suggested - never seeing that stupid quicktime prompt when the arm swipe came - I even managed to dodge this sometimes to continue attacking the remaining armis in futility - seriously, who thought this was a good idea?) I just ditched it as well.

    TW3 had a hard time convincing me. It really took a lot of people telling me it was a really good game until I finally tried it. I enjoyed the witcher contracts most. Beside the storyline. The whole thing felt like a real journey. Which is strange for the open world gameplay wasnt really the strong point. Tho I got rid of the question marks and that mostly did it for immersion and atmo out there.

    And the Blood and Wine - that was the best ending to that journey you could ever think of.

    I can't get over the quality of animation and voice acting. Absolutely brilliant.

    CDP put a lot of effort into things that can really make a game....stupid things like core things like..

    Story
    Voice acting
    Pacing
    Setting
    Decent voice actors that fit the setting

    You know small things like those above.

    Things that other game devs seem to gloss over and forget while trimming above the profit margin. Things that are central ...absolutely central in media that guess what....largely exists to tell STORIES.

    Other devs 0 .... CDP 12

    In W2 you have to get past the 1st boss for the story to get up to speed (W1 was bad in that regard too, took a while to move on). In W3 Charles Dance has unfortunately a quite small role (the character is important, but you wont get to see him a lot) - still that character deserves this first class actor. Makes you think twice before accepting his proposal (i did and reached one of the good endings, so everything is possible (*)) - i mean he's got the voice of a villain, no doubt, but it's all shades of grey, and you have to consider alternatives (which are NOT Radovid ! - but the others arent so great either)...

    (*) it's a tough path, you gotta know perfectly what you are getting into from the start...
    you have to give full freedom and acknowledge that Ciri is a grown up, independant woman, respect her decisions, otherwise you wont get the good ending

    What I liked most about Witcher 1 and maybe this is weird, but I played my Gamma down a bit so the Cat's Eye potions really mattered. So crypt-walking was truly my highlight there. I think that's what I miss. Really great experience there, and towards the end of the game didn't need cat's eye and it got less interesting. Witcher 2 was boring so far in comparison but I'll give it another shot. Tough part of Witcher 3 is to hear Charles I'll have to play in English, heh. But the trailers look immense. I admittedly stopped playing Witcher 3 RIGHT away because I knew I needed to finish W2 first for the story, so not much comment there except it looked great.

    You will not disappointed, it's still one of the best CRPG out there. There are two different main storylines that will give quite a different game experience, both are great. And the last chapter is really epic and worth the effort.

    Agreed. I always found it amazing that CDP went as far as making two completely different (and mutually exclusive) paths through chapter 2. That's nuts. It's like "We will deliberately not show you one quarter of our game, you have to play again."

    Has anyone else after reading this thread, booted up their last savegame or started all over again on the umpteenth playthrough?
