Storyline

In a world that resembles medieval Europe, wickedness, poverty, misery and racism and violence against those who are different, be they minority races such as Elves and Dwarfs or people with special talents like Mages or Witchers is commonplace. Kings who rule the lands scheme, plot and war with each-other even over trivial matters and break every rule known to man and God sparing nothing including men and resources. Monsters and supernatural beasts are another common occurrence in this world and special warriors are created through experiments on chosen men (and sometimes women) at young age. Those who survive the process become known as Witchers, infertile master-warriors who are trained and obligated to slay any beast and evil that endangers Man. Once, they were a powerful and appreciated order, but after a devastating war with a predatory southern dark empire, northern peoples' hate towards those who are not of their kind rose to an unprecedented levels and even the always neutral...

My thoughts of The Witcher
15 May 2015 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

PROS:

  • Geralt's character development (with quite original method of


talents) - potion making (includes picking of herbs, harvesting jaws of vampires etc.) - moral choices reflecting in changing attitudes of other characters - multitude of quests - some parts are really intense
  • deep, immersive story - nice music, beautiful landscapes, amazing


architecture - seducing women is kind of fun - becoming master of dice poker and fist fighting is also kind of fun - original monsters

MEH:

  • somewhere midgame you get a lot of bothersome "run here, talk, run


there, talk" quests - you need to adjust to game's combat system - first 30-90 minutes of the game are kind of boring

CONS:

  • you don't get to use many weapons or armors, because other weapons


than swords are not usable in witcher battle styles making them ineffective especially later in the game - after you start feeling which skills are important and focus on developing them, fighting becomes quite easy

Overall: you need to bite the bullet and endure the first hour of the game. After that you get a really good, immersive RPG with damn good story and lots of locations.
