Summary

After helping to stop the rebellion undertaken by the Order of the Flaming Rose and saving King Foltest’s life, Geralt became one of the central figures of political turmoil in the Kingdom of Temeria.

The only remaining task is to pacify the rebellious castle of Baroness La Valette, who announced separation from the Kingdom.

The second game in the Witcher series deepens the lore and fixes most of the problems of the first one. It´s the shortest one of the series, but has some meaningful choices that takes you to different directions, so you really should play this one at least twice (I haven´t yet, so I´m still wondering what happened to some characters). Good one.

Saying Witcher 2 is a good game is an understatement. This game got overshadowed by Skyrim and never got it's chance to shine.


The plot in this is extremely good. The politics in this game is realistic and the decisions you make are so hard, there is nothing straight black and while. This games give the ability to completely choose 2 different paths and each side has valid importance. You have to play atleast twice to understand both sides of the coins. Further more you wouldn't understand part of what's happening if have not played both sides. There were so much amazing side characters. The people who played only Wither 3 wouldn't know a lot of them.


To put it short the game had a great story, hard decisions, decent gameplay and combat, beautiful graphics for a 2011 game, phenomenal characters and voice acting. The music was sub par but it was fantastic in few certain places.

I would highly suggest you to try the game. The story will baffle you.

The Witcher 2 is polished for the most part and Polish throughout, though its unique origin is reflected more in the grounded fantasy than in the charming, brassy localization. There's no apocalypse in sight, only a well-written web of murdered monarchs, racial tension and freedom fighting -- with just a dash of magic.

You can pick apart the small missteps in the nuts and bolts of The Witcher 2 all day, but you'd be missing the forest for the trees. I play role-playing games to explore fantastic worlds, interact with interesting characters, and pull off bada*s stunts that only a world-saving hero could accomplish. The Witcher 2 obliterates all but the best competition on those criteria. As frustrating as it can be at times, this adventure's charms vastly outweigh its warts.

The game can be finished off in a bit less than half the time it took to edge your way to the finish line of the original Witcher. Where the first game clocked in around 80 hours its sequel packs in a trimmer 30-or-so, and the effect of a shorter game becomes obvious with its slightly abrupt conclusion. But regardless of some occasional wobbles this is one of the most ambitious, darkest, and legitimately smart additions to the genre you'll have the luck of playing. Just get yourself a bloody decent PC.
