Trully a masterpiece.

Felt like reading an increadable book, that I couldn't lay down. Where I had to make every decision.

I think it's the best game I've ever played.. Need some time to dwell on it.

For chapter 2, I created a save game when I had to decide whether to join Roche or the elf. I chose Roche first. I finished the game. Now I will go back to the save game and join the elves to see that story line. It all ends up the same, however, no matter your choices. Your choices just decide which parts of the game you will see as you play.

As others have said, it's in a class of its own, very few developers make true old school RPGs.

Graphically it's so much better than the first one. The think fast decisions is a nice addition to keep you on your toes at all times.

Story line and length of the game, seemed a bit lacking for me, I know it's based on a book, but the first one seemed to have more hours of play time. If you enjoyed the "mature" parts in the first one, there are less in the second but more real.

One thing I missed from the first is the fact that at the end of every chapter you would see the repercussions of all your actions thorough the chapter.

But overall, it's one of the best games, and the best RPG since Witcher 1.

The storyline is top notch, I always like to do all the quests, but I keep getting sucked in and missing them, then I have to find an earlier save game and try it again, without getting ahead of myself.

The thing in the game I do not like so much is the combat, it goes from insanely easy to nearly impossible and this includes the same monster at the same level. What I mean by this is that the targeting system seems quirky at best. I will be in a group of monsters and kill one, next thing I know I am diving past the edge of the screen to kill a monster there, then back to the group to kill one there, then off the screen again, and all the monsters are dead and I am barely scratched. Say I reload the game and replay that very same battle, this time, the monsters keep me pinned to the ground until I am dead. No diving away, no rolling to avoid, nothing, just down, beaten and dead. I do not even understand the targeting principles of this game, a monster can be standing right in front of me stuck in a trap and I cannot target him, other times, monsters not even on the screen behind me that I would not be able to see anyways get targeted and there I go a caterwauling across the screen to blindly lay them down in a single powerful blow. then there is the adrenaline or whatever. I get it filled, use it and it is a mix between unbelievably deadly smack-down any movie legend would die of envy experiencing and a lame ass stand there looking stupid.

So, I stick with the storyline now. I boosted my character to the point that epic monsters simply die from my evil eye glare, and enjoy the story instead. Maybe later I can work on learning more about the combat.

When I was about to play the game for the first time I found out you can use saves from part 1 like with the latest BioWare games (Mass Effect and Dragon Age) to have an effect on part 2. So I immediately reinstalled part 1 on my PC and played though everything in it again to have a save to use. I'm just now trying the game. I had installation problems with Witcher 2 and based on the official website I'm far from the only one. There have been some serious bugs. Also, It seems like the CDProjekt Red servers are having some serious issues so updates and the like have been an issue so far. That aside so far, aside from some minor annoyances it looks like everyone is right. This is an epic game.
