The Witcher 2: Why You Should Sit Up and Take Notice

High fantasy has rarely looked better.

The original release of 'The Witcher' was something of a cult classic in the circles of high-fantasy RPG players. The premise, established through a series of Polish fantasy novels, perfectly suited a deep game scenario, and the lead character, Geralt of Rivia, was all kinds of bad-ass. However, as developer CD Projekt RED openly admit, it was a work of flawed genius; the ideas were there, but the execution lacked polish.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is about to change all that.

This game, above almost all others coming this year, has the potential to surprise you with its depth, beauty and focus on true role-playing. Read on for our thoughts on why The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings should be on your most-wanted list.
