Recently decided to play the Witcher 2. Had a copy for a while and just got around to trying it. Was hoping it would be good but I am not seeing the appeal or praise it attracts. The gameplay itself is rather terrible. You essentially mash the mouse button for everything. Which means your player ends up putting fires/light sources on instead of striking an enemy. What a terrible design; for a PC focused developer I would have thought they would have mapped different keys for different functions instead of using the console style "action button" that does everything. Movement/cover system is terrible and not precise at all. You get pulled into cover when you don't want to and you can't get out quick enough when you need to. And the direction you come off in is rather random which makes stealth attacks (or any attacks) impossible to do correctly. Its another one of those games where moving down a hallway is as difficult as rocket science. To top it off, the game "cheats" for difficultly. As in spawning enemies out of thin air right behind you. The AI itself is dumb and often doesn't even seen you cut down enemies just mere feet away. I suppose the awkward spawning of enemies behind you is a way to make up for a lack of real difficulty? I don't see how anyone can enjoy the combat/gameplay of the game. Is it the story that people like? I haven't played the first game which might be why I don't find it to be engaging at all. I find that it tries too hard to be edgy or "adult" which doesn't work out well to me. Also had some technical issues. A few freezes, one of which was fixed by minimizing, but this resulted in low frame rates (around 15-20). When the game works right I get what looks like 60 with super sampling and all settings maxed out at 1080. Running a GTX 970 OCed with a 4670K at 4GHZ. Am I the only one who didn't enjoy The Witcher 2? I really doubt I will bother to finish it. I do hope their Cyberpunk game is better though. That one has a much more interesting theme IMO.
