The player is Geralt of Rivia, a professional monster slayer, a witcher. Entangled in the political turmoil that engulfed Temeria, Geralt helped quell the rebellion of the Order of the Flaming Rose. Soon after, he saved King Foltest's life when the monarch was attacked by a witcher-like assassin. He continues to protect the king, serving as his bodyguard as Foltest strives to bring peace to his kingdom. The Order's last bastions have yielded to the royal army, yet one more task remains - the Baroness La Valette announced her secession from the realm, and her fortress must be taken. A month after the attempted assassination, Foltest's armies stand at the gates of La Valette Castle, preparing for a final assault. Still at Foltest's side, Geralt is among them, unable to begin his personal quest to discover the mysterious assassin's origin and identity... Written by Official Site

12 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

Luscious graphics and compelling narrative are the strong points of this sword and sorcery RPG, sequel to the remarkable debut by Polish developer CDProjekt RED.

Characters like Roche, Foltest, Iorveth and Letho are sharply defined, the gameworld they inhabit suitably ferocious (although exposition is handled somewhat less gracefully this time around). Fixed protagonist Geralt is once again an unflappable fantasy version of the Man with No Name. Choice & consequence moments are sprinkled throughout the game, determining which secondary characters live or bite the dust, and also the path pursued by Geralt, with a common prologue and first act, two mutually exclusive second acts and a common last act with different possible outcomes.

While combat (action-oriented, with a difficulty spike early on) is an improvement over the first game, gameplay overall isn't: character customization feels streamlined, secondary quests less meaty, a few quick time events vastly annoying (see an obnoxious boss fight against a Kraken-like monster), no location as varied as the city of Vizima in the first Witcher. This sequel is a better action game, but a worse RPG.

Overall, a flawed but worthy effort, and the Witcher 3 looks interesting already.

As a stand-alone game 8/10; as a sequel 6,5/10
