How The Witcher 2 Tranforms You into a Monster

... a Monster-Hunting Machine that is. Kotaku previews The Witcher 2.
The gist of the plot is this: There are some folks assassinating kings. Geralt has to stop them. There's a bit more to it than that, of course. Geralt is missing a chunk of his memory that could potentially resurface as the game progresses, and there are doubtlessly more women to sleep with (there's a sex scene within the first ten minutes of the game).
But when you get right down to it, the excellent voice acting, witty writing, and all of the bells and whistles packed into CD Projekt's custom-built game engine are simply filler, things to admire when you aren't busy diving headfirst into the game's deep, satisfying combat system.
The Witcher was one of the best PC role-playing games of all time. The Witcher 2 might wind up being one of the best PC games of all time. Find out on May 17.
