eurogamer - 7/10:

"One for those who value story and character over technical innovation then, but definitely a game worth trying if the concept has tickled your fancy."

The comments on the review seem to agree that a 7 is too harsh. I got it on Friday but only played through the first chapter (kind of a tutorial level). Very nicely done and fun although the "timed click" combat interface takes a bit of getting used to. This is an RPG, not an action game though.

I am going to pick this up on the way home, which will tied me over until COD4 (PC version) and Crysis.

Been playing since thursday night and its all awesome except the crazy load times.


Can anyone tell me what happens after you fight the Beast. I have just got to him (died fighting him last night so need to back and re-try), but im worried the chapter will end after i kill kim as theres a couple of sidequests i still need to finish off. Is it still going to be possible to complete them after i beat him?

cheers

Nice game, but crazy load times, plus it seems they haven't got the vista bugs sorted, even with the MS hotfix for virtual memory my rig crashes.

This game is odd, it is rough around the edges, yet the things that do work are so quality, you can look past the buggy cut scenes.

I got to the....

Spoiler:
The beast last night, I just can't get anywhere near killing it, admittedly I was a little drunk while trying (real life, not in game), but I lasted about 5-10secs each time, before being wiped out, was using swallow potion and blizzard, any ideas?


Ah I managed to do it tonight while sober :P

Great game, really enjoyed it.

Has some issues that can be mitigated with changes to vista.

Got this for Christmas and loving it. The recent patch seems to have sorted the load times, certainly no problems for me.

Love the side games like fist fights. Have bedded a couple of busty maidens, hopefully more to come.


If you enjoy RPGs - get this.

im near the end of chapter 4 now. I have to say the latest patch is excellent and greatly improves the load times.

This is definately my top game of 2007.

Quick question, does anyone actually use the bombs?

I never used Bombs. I was mainly mele and using the occasional signi. I am an avid RPG fan and this left me wanting more.

EDIT: Also I enjoyed Avencast - Rise of the mage. It got average reviews, and has a weird control system that takes some getting used too. But if you like RPGs like I do, see if you can get hold of a demo, it is a pretty standard dungeon crawler though.

After completing Avencast just now, I am tempted to get the new patch a replay The Witcher on the hardest difficulty. It is a great game. Although some of the cutscenes and character models in them had flaws....how many merchants look like that fat one

I haven't played this as much as I want to, so I'm still stuck in chapter 1.

I'll soon resume my quest to find grease, not just any grease, but the special grease I need. No idea what this grease is mind you, it's just 'grease'

I love this game and haven't devoted so much time to exploring, interacting and killing stuff since Final Fantasy. I almost find that adding notches to the bedpost exceeds my desire progress the storyline.

Question is

Shani or Triss?
