Microsoft Most powerful console available. The Xbox is doing well on its homecourt, but on the road sales aren't dominating.

The Witcher 2 - Better Than Skyrim?



Looks like CD Projekt RED has done the impossible and ported The Witcher 2 to the aging Xbox 360 without losing much of what made it so great on the PC. Seems to be a must by for any RPG fan...

The Witcher 2 Reviews:
  • EuroGamer - 10 - "The best fantasy RPG on Xbox 360. The awesome atmosphere, the epic and adult storyline, the beautiful graphics and the clever gameplay are enough to turn this masterpiece into a must buy. "

  • GameBlog - 10 - "Even though it's less detailed and delicate than on the PC, the 360 port remains visually stunning. The game itself is as good as ever, better even, with its buffed up third act and revised endings. Unmissable for any RPG fan. "

  • GameInformer - 9.5 - "this long-in-development Xbox 360 port is just as amazing as the original. It's actually better than it was at launch"

  • Vandal Online - 9.4 - "It is one of the best games for the Xbox 360; it's deep, complex and mature, and very good news for RPG fans. "

  • XGN - 9.3 - "The Witcher 2 is amazing! Not the graphics, but the gameplay is the thing that will keep the players happy. This just might be the greatest PC-to-console port ever made"

  • Gaming Age - A- - " The Witcher 2 really delivers in every way imaginable."

  • GamingXP - 90% - "Easily one of the best Action-RPGs for Xbox360."

  • Games Radar - 9 - "The immersive world, memorable characters, exhilarating combat, and branching storylines will have you coming back to play it again and again."

  • OXM - 9 - "translated effortlessly to the Xbox 360 with no compromises and stacks up well against the prettiest games on the system. It's more hardcore than Skyrim but by no means inaccessible. "

  • IGN - 8.5 - "The Witcher 2 on Xbox 360 is the same subversive and compelling fantasy that it was on the PC. There are some minor technical and graphical blemishes, but they don't detract from what is one of the best RPGs of recent years, and the extra content adds value. "

It's an amazing game.

I really should replay it with all the additions since launch, plus just like a BioWare game the amount of choices and decisions you make are staggering, it must be played multiple times to get full enjoyment.

Better than Skyrim? Two completely different games, but as a straight up RPG battle, Skyrim doesn't even come close. The only thing Skyrim has over this would be more immersion using first-person in an open world.

Please don't make the Bioware comparison. CDPR has far surpassed them in that regard already.

BioWare is getting hate for 3 reasons nowadays:

1. DA2
2. TOR instead of KotOR 3
3. ME3 ending

All are legitimate in some ways, but this company created Mass Effect. The last 5 minutes of the ending won't ruin one of the greatest trilogies of all time for me, and Mass Effect 2 and 3 (while under EA) were brilliant.

Different settings, but ME > Witcher. We'll see if this changes when Witcher 3 comes out.

How much do you get paid to hate Bioware?


I want ANSWERS!!!


And Tet ME3 is better than the Witcher. Ya I said it. In fact aside from some plot holes of the last 5 minutes ME3 really is a masterpiece.

Mass Effect 3 is the worst one. I wasn't even mad at the ending, because I expected a bad ending. I didn't expect the bad quests. Nearly every side quest was click this thing, and wait at the landing zone until this walker drops so you can kill it. That happened damn near every time. So bad. It was like, cheesy quite often as well.

The Witcher 2 obliterates ME3 in the writing, quest design and C&C department. Like, it isn't even close at all. As Bioware has made the gameplay in ME better, they have fallen off drastically in those departments.

I picked this up over the weekend and put a few hours into it. Basically the prologue and some of chapter 1. So far I'm impressed.
