Review: Witcher 2 Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition (Xbox 360)


The Dragonslayer
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.

About Chris Davisone of us since 6:13 PM on 04.27.2010

Hi there! My name is Chris and I'm a writer and editor for Hooked Gamers as well as an aspiring game and tech journalist. I've been writing for years but only recently have I started to post my articles on other sites like Dtroid. I graduated from Austin Community College with an associates degree in Journalism and am currently undecided on my continued education plans. What I do know is that I enjoy writing for sites like Destructoid and, though I may not post on my Dtroid blog very often I do share articles and reviews here that won't appear on my other sites.

I can be found primarily at Hookedgamers.com and 4playerpodcast.com. I've also started up a personal blog (Slackerwerks.com) where you'll see all of my future articles posted.

You can find me most of the time on Xbox Live and occasionally on Steam under the same Gamertag. If you need to reach me I use the same ID wherever I go so please don't hesitate if you have any comments or questions you'd like to throw my way.

Thanks for stopping by!
