Witcher 2 going back from 3

Postby DrLitch » April 2nd, 2021, 7:14 pm

Finished a second playthrough of Witcher 3 a few weeks back.

Now hitting number 2, about 10 hours in.

Great story but.... the combat sucks, completely sucks. I wonder why I did not notice this when I played it back in 2011/12 though? Back then Witcher 2 was a favorite and a definite improvement over the first Witcher.

I can see why Dave sometimes reedits reviews for games, rose tinted glasses do not always keep their tint.

Anyway I will complete Witcher 2, just not as grand as I though it was. A 10/10 game for me in 2012 is now straddling the 7/10 mark.

I bought this and played it last year. The story is engaging, but everything else is super janky. Played about halfway through and wasn’t compelled to go any further. The combat is truly crap. Shame as the main story and side quests were engaging, but totally hampered with sub-par gameplay.

It’s a D+ for me at this point. So many other games I’d rather play on the 360.
