Good Old Geralt: The Witcher 2 Preview 2

Not here, I'm afraid - although Jim and I will be pairing up for further discussion about CD Projekt's new roleplaying opus very soon - but over on Eurogamer, where I've dashed out a goodly few words about the first two sections of The Witcher 2. Now, I'm known in some parts (by people who don't entirely grasp that there are medium-sized numbers in between high numbers and low numbers) as one of the guys who didn't dig the original Witcher all that much. You'll find over here that I certainly don't feel the same way about the second game. E.g. on EG:

A huge step upwards in terms of presentation, writing and roleplaying complexity, The Witcher 2 takes the RPG fight right to the big boys. Assassins of Kings? If the kings are BioWare and Bethesda, that sounds about right.

I really, really, really hope review code's landing soon. In fact, I just spied a press release claiming the game's gone gold, so that May 17 release date is in no doubt.
