The Witcher is a PC based RPG that was released in October 2007 and has received positive reviews from many sources. This game was quite gripping for me from its opening movie to the end, and has a lot to offer; soon into the game you’ll realize that this is not your everyday average joe RPG. There still remains the old rule of ‘talk to everyone you meet,’ but these standard elements of any game of this genre are outshined by the overall unique feel of the world that the game presents. The battle system is heavily based on combos and a small selection of upgradeable spells. Your choices when relating to the world’s characters will determine your fate as you progress, and you may find yourself split in twain more than once. These choices are the reasons why this game received a “Mature” ESRB rating. Let’s delve a little deeper into this dark world.

The story is absolutely involving from the very beginning. Since you (Geralt) have amnesia and can remember nothing when the game begins, everyone’s a stranger and it’s up to you to piece together the past. Contrary to other games of this genre, you have no choice of the character of your class; it is focused on the witcher and his spells and swords. Probably the most fascinating part of this story is your ability to choose sides. As you gather information from the townsfolk, you’ll begin to form your own opinion of certain characters you meet which will most likely shape your decisions later in the game. This gives the game a treacherous, realistic feel which will make you wonder what’s right or wrong or if either exists. The voice acting satisfied me for the most part, although some of it was a little amateurish, and the character models are way too overused. You’ll inevitably form your own opinions of the allies you make in the game but they’re definitely memorable.

The graphics are nothing to scoff at and while not quite achieving the resource hogging elements of games like Elder Scrolls, I was definitely immersed. You’re given 3 different perspectives to view the world, all third person but from different distances which will give you the ability to either feel the heat of battle up close or to quickly assess the situation on the battlefield from afar. Aside from being overused, the character models are realistic enough, facial expressions including. To view this all in full detail you may want a moderately fast PC and video card but you can always tone it down using the graphics options. Here are the system requirements:

Whores, verbal curses, alcohol, drugs, and nudity abound in this version of an RPG. This truly is a mature-oriented game but reflects the reality of how medieval times might have actually been. It’s tempting to lay down with every temptress you come across, though I noticed one or two points in the story where the decision to do so may have had negative consequences. Yes, there are hookers walking the streets that you can have your way with.
