I tried playing the Enhanced Edition last month and just couldn't deal with it, controls were just terrible to the point of making it an exercise in frustration, ditched it. That said, v2 looks to be a very good game based on looks alone, hopefully it's not just hyped up.

OK, you guys convinced me. Downloading as we speak. I like being a mage so we'll see how this goes.

Uhh sorry to disappoint you but you dont get to pick your class in this, you play the witcher Geralt, its a game heavily rooted in the story, but I m sure you'll still enjoy it.

Yup, I realized that from reading the reviews and watching the trailer and a clip of game play. That's why I mentioned the "so we'll see how this goes".

It does look pretty awesome. I am still on the fence about the "combo" moves and having to click at certain times but I haven't started playing so I can't really emit a real judgement until then.

"introduce" people to the sequel - that is one long ass introduction. Afaik, witcher 1 is a minimum of 40 hours long and my friend who loves it has easily dumped hundreds into it. Witcher 2 has better atmospherics, just as many dynamic story twists (possibly even more), different endings based on how you play, and so much more.

Support GoG & CD Projekt and buy these games if you can.
PS: Witcher 1's combat isn't for everyone. Also, GoG is offering Witcher 2 for preorder @ $45 atm

2nd one is going to be absolutely amazing. I easily played 85 hours or so in the first one, there is just so much to do.

I hope so - The combat really turned me off in the first one, 2 is going to be more typical hackenslash action type combat.
