The Witcher Review

Drawing my conclusion on The Witcher has been difficult and was actually rather painful for me to come to and not because of my ongoing problem with RSI either. You see, I want to give The Witcher a high score so very badly and I’d love any excuse to tell you all to go out and buy it, but there are just too many problems in the way.

This is a bit of a personal conflict, because I’m a massive RPG fan and The Witcher is exactly the type of game I love. There’s an adult theme, a complicated but scalable set of mechanics to master and an epic and inventively delivered narrative – just what gamers like I lust for. There are problems too though. Poor lip syncing, graphics which border on schizophrenic and frequent crashes and viewpoint problems – these are noticeable enough to dissuade the majority from playing the game.
