Storyline

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

Greater gameplay is worth some minor graphical flaws.
18 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This review is a comparison between the PC and 360 versions of the game, since I've played it on both i'll detail the differences and comment on the game itself.

First off I prefer the 360 version, using a controller is much better for this kind of game versus a keyboard and mouse. Of course you can use a controller for the PC version, but it has a different layout and aiming system. For 360 you get an amazing 3 button attack system, a 2 button defense system, easy to use magic radials and bomb/traps, and control of the camera with the right stick. Only Kingdoms of Amalur comes close to having such good combat for an RPG, or any hack and slash for that matter.

Now the graphics, the issue everyone debates on this game. No the 360 version does not look as good as it CAN look on PC, but... think about this, to get this game to look as good as possible and run smoothly on a PC you are easily looking at spending upwards of 3000 dollars, maybe more. A 360 costs what 200 bucks now? So for 200 bucks you get a game that still looks great, but (and even you install it to the 360's harddrive which i recommend anyway) there's some texture pop in, not uncommon in most better looking games (even gears of war has texture pop in). Or you can spend 3000 dollars, and probably still not be able to run the game max'd out (my friend has a 5000 dollar super machine and runs it max'd out fine, but thats 5 grand). My 9800 geforce card can barely handle medium, and even then I get major slow down. So imo even if your rich the 360 version is the better choice, besides 1080p... is 1080p.

Onto the game itself, I'm sure if your reading this you already know what to expect, a mature story with lots of characters, dialogue, violence, and yes sex. Like I said the game has some amazing combat especially for an RPG, and the only real flaw for the 360 version is some texture pop in, hows an extra second to load some detail worth penalizing the game? It's not.

Its a great game, its a great RPG, its not for kids! Its worth the 60 bucks, and its easily worth playing twice considering the last two thirds of the game can be completely different depending on your choices. Its easily one of the best RPGs of this generation, and imo it blows skyrim's face off.

10/10
