After helping to stop the rebellion undertaken by the Order of the Flaming Rose and saving King Foltest’s life, Geralt became one of the central figures of political turmoil in the Kingdom of Temeria. Geralt continues to protect the King in the monarch’s mission to bring peace to his state. The last bastions of the Order yielded to the royal army. The only remaining task is to pacify the rebellious castle of Baroness La Valette, who announced separation from the Kingdom. It’s been a month since the attempted assassination of the king, when his army arrives at the gates of Baroness La Valette’s fortress in preparation for the final battle. In the meantime, Geralt, stuck with Foltest, cannot begin his personal quest - to discover the origin and identity of the mysterious witcher-like assassin responsible for the attempt on the king’s life - a quest that would answer many questions...

The set as a whole, the collector's edition, is one of the best I've ever seen. Most collector's edition sets are made for a small fraction of the price above a regular edition, and charge a great amount more. This is the first such set I have seen that is worth the money.
The whole thing comes in a large high quality cardboard box, not cheap plastic like most other collector's eds. The artbook is clearly the best thing in there. Hardback, 200 pages, glossy full colour A3 size paper, great content. A beautiful collection of works from hand drawn concepts to final digital designs.
The stickers, are....stickers. You know what you're getting there. 3 of them, good for laptops.
The bust is larger than expected, a little over six inches, and nicely designed. The interior box mold that 'holds' all the content is made of a black felted plastic, which can rub off on the bust. A wet cloth removes it just fine.
The dice come in a neat little bag, VERY similar to the World of Darkness brand dice sets sold in stores. Black and printed with a Witcher design. The dice themselves, 5 of them, are nicely made, if of a simple light-weight plastic. An off-white bone colour, with designs actually etched in, not just printed on. All five dice are the same.
The card deck comes in a fitted cardboard box with Geralt on it, simple enough. It's a full deck, just slightly smaller than regular card size. The backs have an original design on them, the aces feature another original design, and each of the 12 'face' cards (Kings, Queens, Jacks) features artwork of a different appropriate character on each one. Dandellion features on the three Jokers. All the remaining cards are as a regular deck.
With the dice and cards comes a 16 page booklet, written in character as Dandellion, detailing some in world card and dice games, as well as some trademark wit.
The coin, a Temerian Oren, is made of solid metal, about heavy as a British 50 pence piece or an American silver dollar. And bears the resemblance of King Foltest and the arms of his city on the reverse. Nice, simple.
A letter is also packaged within, in a designed envelope on mock stained paper. This is an in world replica of a call to arms, and inside is a propaganda leaflet against King Henselt, in the style of Victorian publicity. Also within the envelope is a tiny coin, the size of a British 5 pence piece or an American dime, bearing the sigil of the game's villain, an actually rather cool cephalopoid skull. I prefer this one to the larger Oren, myself.
Two bonus pieces of Downloadable content come with the collectors ed, one specifically from Amazon. The ultimate swordsman suit, and the Roche Commando jacket. These downloadable outfits enhance Geralt's abilities in game.
Last, is of course the papercrafts. The collectors edition comes with a large 'Boss' papercraft, the Draug. Two more smaller ones are also packed, which also come with the regular edition of the game. The first is Geralt De Rivia himself, the second is random, so you don't know who you will get from several others.
As with the Regular edition, inside the game package itself, you will find a large sized two sided map of the realms of the Witcher, featuring some nice artwork. A DVD that contains the games soundtrack, well beyond any soundtrack to an American game in years, and a selection of videos and development diaries. These contain information on characters, design, the game engine and other such diaries. Lastly on the DVD are the game trailers, screenshots, and some promotional art images.
Like the platinum edition of the first game, also packaged is a game guide, full of information on quests, locations, secrets and tips for the game itself.
The game comes on two DVD discs, along with a user manual.
As this is a review of the collectors Edition, I won't go into detail on the game itself, other that to say there are many reviews around the internet, and the vast majority of them agree, The Witcher 2 is probably the best RPG of the decade. Outdoing most everything else in it's class, and putting American game developers to shame.
It is adult, well written, complex, and above all, uses the world of the Witcher brilliantly.
My only issue with the pc version is this bizarre lag from the fps never seeming to be able to catch up the game itself. Cutscenes I don't mind too much as I've played this so many times on my 360 I already know what's happening, but on pc it's a bit of a pain as it can continue during game play even if your specs are perfect and you've muddled with the settings. In the end though it doesn't break the game, its just an annoyance.
Still the game itself it's worth the playthrough be it on pc or xbox or whatever. And while I do suggest giving the first game a go as well before hand, the second one isn't a bad starting point either. Great story, wonderful characters and choices to be made. While it isn't open world like the upcoming Wild Hunt, it is still quite fun to explore what the world of the Witcher 2 has to offer. So if you've got a pc that can handle the requirements for this, and then some, I highly suggest it. If you're a console gamer, I still suggest it.
Now as for what you get with this edition? Its worth it.
Much like a few others have already, I've gotta say that the bust is supposed to look aged and mussed up, so I don't understand the confusion some other reviewers have had on that. Again: THAT IS HOW IT SHOULD LOOK.
The art book is fantastic, and really does have some beautiful sketches of not only main characters, but others you encounter in the world, monsters, landscapes, weapons, armors, and all with great descriptions.
Stickers and paper crafts? Well stickers are stickers lol but the paper crafts are cute and kind of fun to put together.
The coin is wonderfully made as it looks just as real as one would expect it too if the currency of orens was one used in the real world.
The dice and the cards are also fantastic. Though I will say for the dice I wish they were made from wood rather than plastic, but they don't particularly suffer from it as they roll just like any other set of dice would. The cards are lovely, and printed well, and I am happy this came with instructions on how to play that are "Written by Dandelion himself" lol!
For the matter of the dvd and music. The music is rather beautiful, a score that sets the tone for various locations and acts within the game and its done very well. The bonus dvd is great if you're the sort who likes to look into the development process behind certain games. And as another bonus, you get more paper crafts and a large poster map of the in game world, as well as a mini game guide that I believe also came with some of the other editions of the game.
So five stars for the collectors edition, and honestly for the game itself. If you've got a pc that can handle this game don't miss out, and if not try giving it a go on console.
