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.

This project was inspired by the Full Combat Rebalance 2 (FCR2) mod by Flash of CD Projekt RED. Formerly based upon FCR2 during the initial portion of development, it has since branched off and come into its own with a slew of changes. The highlights revolve around combat. These include improved parrying, free-form targeting, focused attack, and combat-based experience points to name a few. Most of the new abilities are acquired through character ability development. The player level cap has been extended to 96. So it is possible to completely fill the entire skill tree. Leveling will also slow down towards the higher levels due to progressive XP requirements. While a lot of the changes were allegedly spurred by personal preference, game balance was still kept in mind.

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).

Fast forward two years later and I think it's safe to say Skyrim lost...

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.

Not accusing anyone, just saying we all have one, and they might not match.

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.
