The Witcher 2

Fantasy aficionado and all-around great guy Matt Keil had the chance to check out eagerly awaited PC RPG The Witcher 2 recently, and among other things, he was favorably impressed with the changes from the first Witcher. Things have been streamlined and action has been packed-in.

From his preview:

"While The Witcher was clearly a Neverwinter Nights permutation with some twitch-based elements to the point-and-click combat, The Witcher 2 is much more of an action-adventure title in terms of the fighting. Geralt can perform combos with careful button timing, and fire off spells with ease thanks to a new quick-select spell menu. He can change targets at will, dodge-roll away from harm, or block and parry to create openings for counterattacks. The closest comparison in recent memory is probably Batman: Arkham Asylum, which is certainly meant as a compliment. I actually plan to play the final game with a 360 controller. The controls and combat really are that streamlined."

Check out the rest of our Witcher 2 preview.
