    Shame there is no possibility to comment. I would enjoy the rage of TW2 fans.

    Anyway, that guy is the worst type of the consolefags. He is dumb, stupid, casual player who probably needs several minutes to figure out the rules of pacman.

    This is what I thought too. It was a console game released on the PC first. They even ripped their combat model from a console game and made it worse.

    I don't get it, Witcher 2 isnt complicated at all, its just like every other fucking ARPG out there.

    If it was published by EA i'm sure they would like it.

    Amateur stuff.

    A true troll would question whether the witcher even has more choices and then delve into the question of how to define what a choice is.

    I didn't play through Witcher 1 because it was too boring or "complicated" (lol)

    Sorry but adding a bunch of trivial bullshit like potions mixing and having to research skulls and shit wasn't fun. Have potions but don't require me to get a PHD in potions to make them.

    I wanted to enjoy it too to support my Polish comrades.

    this is what you get when you get a person who is a whole lot more writer than gamer talking about games

    the only real difference between him and a newly registered gamespy member's complaints is that he has the ability to make his conclusions look presentable

    i.e
    in place of

    who cares. video game ''critics'' are nothing more than moronic fanboys and effiminate nerds given writing jobs. they have zero qualifications or even the ability to express themselves in a coherent manner half of the time

    TW2 was banalshit boring though. Most fights could be won with quen (think that's the sign, TWitcher was kinda forgettable) and tumble. Apparently the polish approach to RPG innovation goes along the lines of:

    "Zho... In old rpg you roll ze dice in fight. Hov ve make better?"
    "Yuri, I hav idea! In Twitcher, ve roll entire character in fight!"
    "Genius! You can hav potato!"

    Yeah they should incorporate more alpha nerds and non-fanboys from the Codex to write reviews.

    To be fair, they've kept patching, adding and modifying the combat system the whole year, in effect removing inverted difficulty curve, at least on the highest difficulty settings (Hard, Dark and Insane). Now Quen is just one-hit shield only, the less vigour you have the less damage you deal (which also reduces effectiveness of Quen drastically), Riposte has been improved to block multiple attacks (making it from worthless to most useful), Blocking is still possible with empty vigour bar (though it does not block 100% of damage then) and human enemies were given ability to throw daggers and bombs.

    It's still rolling heavy, though (due to boss battle design), but on account of limited space during combat and weaker Quen (which has become somehow overshadowed by fully upgraded Aard) it's not one solution to rule them all anymore (except for god-attrocious boss battles). Besides, rolling is just an (awfully displaced) animation that aims to depict dodging - which was intended as the main device in combat. Otherwise, how would you imagine taking on 7++ enemies by yourself? They would steamroll you with sheer bodyweight.

    The combat system is still broken, but the game is playable without Quen/roll abuse. On normal difficulty you only have to roll in a few boss fights. On hard and dark mode you can stop rolling after the first chapter or so if you put your points in sword skills and take the skill that reduces backstab damage.
