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

Quotes

Dethmold: [lying on the floor, terrorized] What do you want?... I'll give you anything.
Vernon Roche: [bent upon him with a knife in his hand] You can't give back what you took from me. Cutting off your balls and slitting your throat will have to do.
[cuts off Dethmold's testicles, places them in his mouth and finally slits his throat]

awesome
28 February 2016 | by whitequeen71See all my reviews

Finally, I'm not feeling like a mature woman playing with her children's toys! This game treats you like an adult, sentient being unlike Bethesda's works. Amazing immersing non-linear story where your choices MATTER. Highest re-playability since there are two totally different main scenarios in which you can still do things in a very different way. Thankfully European countries are not sexuophobic *clears throat* and sex is treated as it should be: a part of life. The game has technical issues, a messy inventory and an almost useless map on the xbox 360 version, but I don't care, I'm finally feeling like my intelligence is RESPECTED. Many don't like the combat system but I enjoyed it, a good mix of strategy and action.
