Make no mistake about it: The Witcher 2 is a hardcore RPG. Stephen Johnson had the chance to get his hands on the game at E3 2010, and was very impressed. Here's a small sliver of his preview:
"Judging from the E3 demo, the second Witcher game improves upon the original game in a number of ways. It's is powered by a new game engine, allowing for both improved visuals and embettered game mechanics. This is a beautiful game -- the demo from E3 featured an inviting woodland setting that pops from the screen with vivid, lush colors, as well as a town scene with fully detailed environments and characters. Both setting were exceptionally well-done from a graphics perspective."
