bit-tech :The Witcher
Posted by newsbot on October 31st 2007



Drawing my conclusion on The Witcher has been difficultandwas actually rather painful for me to come to and not because of myongoing problem with RSI either. You see, I want to give TheWitchera high score so very badly and I’d love any excuse to tell you all togo out and buy it, but there are just too many problems in the way.This is a bit of a personal conflict, because I’m a massive RPG fan andThe Witcheris exactly the type of game I love. There’s an adult theme, acomplicated but scalable set of mechanics to master and an epic andinventively delivered narrative – just what gamers like I lust for.There are problems too though. Poor lip syncing, graphics which borderon schizophrenic and frequent crashes and viewpoint problems – theseare noticeable enough to dissuade the majority from playing the game. The Witcher isn’t a bad game though, just an unpolished onewhich could have done with a little bit more thought and design work.The bugs and crashes will hopefully be eliminated in the future, butfor the moment they are a semi-serious problem for the game. Basically it all comes down to the gamer. If you’re a hardcore RPGgamer like myself then you’ll be able to tolerate or cope with theproblems and have yourself a merry old time. If you’re just a RPGfledgling though or aren’t sure the basic delayed-consequence systeminterests you though then you may do better to avoid The Witcherfor a bit. It all depends on whether or not you’re really willing tosit down for a 40-hour game only to play it all over again to getdifferent consequences – discuss the matter in the forums.
