The Witcher Is A Bit Patchy


That's right, The Witcher: Enhanced Edition patch is now available for those of you who bought the game the first time around. It's a beefy 1.2gb and there's a mirror here.

I'm grinding my way through the Enhanced Edition at the moment and finding The Witcher to be an uneven experience. There's plenty to like about it - especially with Polish voice-acting and English subtitles glossing over the dodgy dialogue - the grim art style, decaying fantasy world, and general melee combat are all to my tastes. The mechanical elements of the RPG, however, are less slick. It's full of annoyances in the way some quests are structured, as well as they way character development is introduced. These needed as much of an overhaul as the cosmetic stuff the Enhanced Edition dealt with. And sex cards thing? Wow. That's so, so crass. I'll probably write some more on the game generally when I've managed to get myself unstuck from the end of the first chapter.
