While I could see how this game could be enjoyable to some, I just wasn't feeling it. After playing it for about ten hours, I quickly realized that this was going to be a 100+ hour kind of game. I contemplated trying to push through because of the good reviews, but it's just not for me.
Combat controls were too easily learned, but were clunky.
The amount of detail was a bit overwhelming, and I just couldn't find myself getting into the story.
With that being said, if you're willing to immerse yourself fully into this game, I think you'd like it. The game IS beautiful and the dialogue and acting is on point.

I heard about this game through youtube when I watched dark souls videos, and someone said it was a good game and they were right. so far this game is enjoyable to me.
you play as garalt of rivera (I think that's how you spell his name) a witcher who helps people uses swords and magic which I find awesome.
the combat is nice and its very challenging.
the plot is pretty much you try to protect this king he gets killed by the guy in the beginning cutscene and garlt gets blamed for it when he didn't do it and so now garlyt tries to prove hes innocent and not guilty. the guy who killed the king knows about garlt and tried to frame him from the beginning for some odd reason and I am enjoying the sidequests and plot

Eh, you have to play the first game before handling this one... other wise there is quite a learning curve...A big plus is choices... lots of choices... what skillset do I want to master? Choices make up for the lack of an open world and if you hadn't mastered the control scheme kiss your chances of beating this game goodbye... non generic but seriously, cursing like sailorsI doesnt seem to fit the era... the story in my opinion killed the game the most, and after so many sidequests I felt like I was wasting my time..
