The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition PC Review
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is an epic third person RPG and the sequel to the brilliant 2007 game The Witcher from the now well known Polish studio CD Projekt RED , the game its self is based on the book series The Witcher by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski.
This week I am reviewing the Enhanced Edition for PC, an updated version of the game that added a whopping 10GB of new content, that comes with everything from four hours of extra gameplay, over half an hour of new cut-scenes that give the game new intro and outro movies, bug fixes and tweaks to the interface. The game is of course also available for the Xbox 360, new copies are now pre-loaded with the gargantuan title update.
There have been a lot of changes since the first game, not counting the extra changes from the title update, the main one being a departure from BioWares Aurora Engine, instead favouring their own in-house game engine which incorporates the Havok physics engine, both of which add up to making this game look nothing short of fantastic, with detailed textures and powerful lighting systems in place, lots of on screen characters and great animation helping to bring the world to life in this magical title, also while the game plays well enough as a standalone, great for people who haven’t played or don’t want to play the original, you do have the option to import your game saves from the first title, I didn’t have this luxury available, but its nice that the option is catered for.
