The second instalment in the RPG saga about the Witcher, Geralt of Rivia, features a thoroughly engrossing, mature storyline defining new standards for thought-provoking, non-linear game narration. In addition to an epic story, the game features an original, brutal combat system that uniquely combines tactical elements with dynamic action.

A new, modern game engine, responsible both for beautiful visuals and sophisticated game mechanics puts players in the most lively and believable world ever created in an RPG game. A captivating story, dynamic combat system, beautiful graphics, and everything else that made the original Witcher such a great game are now executed in a much more advanced and sophisticated way.

~ The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition ~

~ Some information about the game ~

During the prologue, Geralt is interrogated in a prison in the kingdom of Temeria by Vernon Roche, the commander of a group of Temerian special forces known as the Blue Stripes, regarding the assassination of the king of Temeria, King Foltest.


Geralt recounts the events leading up to Foltest's death, during which he acted as Foltest's bodyguard. During an uprising against Foltest by noble families of Temeria, Foltest personally leads the battle in order to recover his illegitimate children, Anais and Boussy, who are being held by the rebels. Once Foltest finds his children, he is killed by an assassin disguised as a blind monk, who escapes before Geralt can react.


Geralt is then found by Temerian forces and mistaken for Foltest's killer. After hearing Geralt's confessions, Roche decides that Geralt is innocent and aids him in escaping the prison. The two, along with sorceress Triss Merigold, Geralt's companion and Foltest's royal advisor, then travel to a trading post named Flotsam, in search of the kingslayer.


Upon arrival to Flotsam, Geralt, Roche, and Triss are ambushed by Iorveth, with Triss's magic saving them from his archers. Geralt discovers the assassin is a witcher in league with a group of Elven rebels known as the Scoia'tael.


The assassin is also revealed to have killed another king: Demavend, the king of neighboring kingdom Aedirn. Upon arrival, Geralt walks upon Zoltan and Dandelion about to be hanged in the city square. After a scrap with the guards, the commandant of Flotsam, Loredo, sets them free under certain conditions, and asks Geralt to meet him in his mansion.

Combat looks like Assassin's Creed combat. No offense. Oh and no offense but I think Dark Souls will be RPG of the year - at least for me. The Witcher 2 certainly looks like an improvement upon the first (which I found mediocre), camera looks better too.

it is nothing like Assassin's Creed. Oh, and Dark Souls pales in comparison to the Witcher 2.

I disagree. The Witcher 2 (despite being a good game) pales in comparison to Dark Souls.

Combat is a LOT different from AC. There's nothing similiar and Skyrim will not only be the RPG of the year but the game of the year (witcher 2 will be the runner up).

It's similar in that it looks the same and displays cinematic deaths. Skyrim is dumbed down from Oblivion and entirely dumbed down from Morrowind. Don't get your hopes up about it. I'm putting bets on Dark Souls.

The Witcher 2 only has cinematic deaths in a couple of places. Most of the time, dying just gives you a 'Game Over' screen.

Actually the laptop will sweat with Witcher 2. My HD6970 breaks a lot of sweat at all settings maxed out at 1920x1080, breaks 30fps too sometimes.
