From the Manufacturer

    The RPG of the Year is back - in a Premium Edition packed with Powerful Extras!

    Based on the universe created by best-selling Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, The Witcher puts players in the role of Geralt, a professional monster slayer who exists on the fringes of a complex society in a fantasy universe. Taken as a child, mutated, and trained in the arcane ways of the witchers, Geralt is a reluctant hero, who nonetheless finds himself all too frequently in the heat of battles that are not his own. In this world there is no right or wrong, only decisions and consequences. The Witcher has already garnered worldwide success, having sold over 700,000 copies, and has received more than 90 awards and distinctions.

    • Improved, Enhanced and Expanded Edition of the "Best RPG of 2007"
    • Bonus Content - D'jinii Adventure Editor and Two New Adventures. The D'jinni Adventure Editor allows players to create or modify their own adventures in the world of The Witcher.
    • "The Price of Neutrality": the adventure tells the story of Geralt coming back to Kaer Morhen and finding a mysterious camp near the stronghold (featuring 3 new quests)
    • "Side Effects": the first ever release of this new adventure which focuses on Geralt's close friend, Dandelion, and his troubles in Vizima City (featuring 5 new quests)

Were I a member of the gaming Industry right now, I would be shamed to be taught what gaming should look and feel like and how it should be marketed by a small Eastern European company. Who of the multi-billion gaming "giants" ever went back to improve a released game? Yet, there you have it: thanks to CDPROJECT gaming as an art-form is still alive and kicking!

This was the most awaited fantasy cRPG in the past 3 years. Not only did the original deliver, but even more work has gone into truly improving it.
THIS WAS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL cRPG GAMES I HAD EVER PLAYED - AND NOW IT IS GORGEOUS!

The environments are detailed, realistic, and can be experienced from up close. Grass, flowers and tree branches moved in both FABLE and TITAN QUEST as well; these, however, seem so true I caught myself reaching for my...antihistamines! Weather affects and day-night alterations (you have to see the elongating shadows to believe them!) are just gorgeous! More importantly, these are not just eye-candy: certain NPCs and monsters appear only when the correct combination of time-of-day and weather coincide...The horizon is far and the clouds move in endless variations. It reminded me of the sky of the original UNREAL, another visually ground-breaking game at its time. PURE VISUAL MAGIC!

The character (Geralt) can master both sword-fighting and magic spells (what is known as a Warlock). To some die-hard RPG fans this may seem like heresy, nevertheless, keep in mind that multi-classing is not unheard off. The movement repertoire for both practices are impressively designed. Especially the sword-fighting, it is at par to any console action game. And the spells (both offensive and defensive ones) are not less impressive.

Free roaming? Yes and no.

You are Geralt, the wife wolf, biologically enhanced with super reflexes and healing powers, magic, alchemy and the sword are at your disposal, and there are monsters everywhere, which is good for you, it's your to kill them.

The first "Witcher" released last year turned a lot of heads and turned a lot of gamers off as well. Sure the graphics are hyper-realistic, the fighting system dynamic blending RPG and Action together in a way similar but superior to "Diablo" or "Neverwinter Knights" and the story is epic, complex and ripe with side-quest, complex characters and decisions that really make a difference in how the game unfolds, but the glitches. The first Witcher was a mess of ultra long loading times, cloned NPG's, annoyingly repetitive and stifled dialogue that cloaked the brilliant game and sent some gamers back to the store for refunds.

The new "Witcher" is free to customers with the original disk, I opted however to buy it again. Why? Because the "Enhanced Edition" comes with a 112 pg guide (which is unfortunately small enough to fit in a DVD box) as well as a nice fold-out map. A game editor, new quest and two CD's of music from or inspired by plus a print book of a short story from which the game and characters arose. Again, all this is available in digital form for free to those who purchased the old version, but I wanted the print copies.

So, the pros? Well, the loading times are vastly cut, but the game takes up to a WHOPPING 13 GIGS of HD space and a minimum of 9. Most of the dialogue has been re-written and re-recorded to great effect, this is all good. The cut scenes are still boring to watch, though a little more movement has been added. Overall, the presentation and loading issues are all solved and extra quest are always good and welcome.

This is the best cRPG of all time. No joke. With the Enhanced Edition out, the flaws that detracted from the gameplay, and gave games like NWN, (only because of the vast user-created modules), and Planescape a chance to compete, there are no longer any RPGs in the Witcher's class, let alone with a similar grade. Okay, bad analogy, but it works.

You play as Geralt, a white-haired witcher, (read- monster slayer), who has lost his memory, and has apparently been raised from the dead. Despite this non-original start, the rest of the game seems to go out of its way to make up for it. (Don't worry about spoilers, you find this out in the opening cutscene.) The sheer enormousness of the world, and the multitude of NPCs, (which is my one and only gripe with the Witcher, that their aren't enough models, and you end up having someone talking to themselves), that you interact with on a frequent basis, makes you feel like you know them.

The world that The Witcher is set in is a dark and gritty world, with racism and genocide in it, along with language that would curl your mother's hair, and quite a few unnecessary sex scenes. Pretty much every woman you meet is trying to jump your bones. That said, there is a believable reason for this promiscuity, besides simply attracting the 13-year-old Nerd demographic of gamers, which, however, I will not share here, as it would be a moderate spoiler, and some people might not like me for that.

The fights are simply awesome, whether you are chopping a character's head off, or slitting his throat from a stranglehold, or repeatedly stabbing him with a dagger while he writhes on the ground, well, you get my point.
