I�ve made it clear in the past that I�m just not a fan of traditional fantasy titles. Elves, Orcs, Dwarves: if your game has them and a traditional fantasy narrative chances are that I�m not going to be interested. The Witcher 2, on the other hand, tickles my fancy by incorporating one of the more mature, well thought approaches to a story seen this generation. Series like Lord of the Rings allow for an epic journey yes, but The Witcher 2�s approach allows you to shape a fantasy story in ways that I can�t recall having been done in the genre before. The game�s relationships feel real, the power of Geralt of Rivia is satisfying and your influence on the world is fantastically strong. While the lack of information for console-only players about Geralt�s previous adventure is regrettable, the series� future is very bright.
Assassins of Kings� Enhanced Edition is not only a great game, it�s also a great port to consoles. For gamers who love a good story and a fantastical, interesting narrative, you can�t afford to ignore The Witcher.
