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.

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.

Despite all the little flaws and caveats, The Witcher 2 is, ultimately, a fantastic game; any fan of darker, more consequentialist fiction will find themselves right at home. Nevertheless, those of you looking for something more upbeat, more uplifting – and frankly, less draining to play – will want to look elsewhere. The Witcher 2 is bittersweet.

If you have a seminal RPG void in your heart that wasn’t filled by Dragon Age II, you’ve found the perfect surrogate. The Witcher 2 improves universally over the original, and also manages to be the best looking PC game at the same time. If you’re a fan of meaty RPGs or if you’ve been desperate to stretch your computer’s technical legs, you need to play The Witcher 2.
