Rather than age old concept of saving-the-princess-trapped-in-tower-by-the-evil-wizard, this time they’ve turned the princess into an acrobatic and witty character that journeys together with the prince. Jumping on walls, fighting evil monsters and catching the prince when he falls. Yep, my kind of girl.
Thanks to the princess, the prince never dies. She always brings him back to life, making the game more of an adventure genre rather than an action one. Good for ol’timers like me. 🙂
The conversations are hilarious. The prince is playful, extremely flirty and acts the fool – all the time. The princess is sarcastic, down-to-earth and has a sense of direction. Yeah, I know, I didn’t believe it either. You have to play it to believe it.

On a technical note: The graphics as you can see, are simple yet colourful. I played it with the highest setting on my notebook which has a 7900GS equivalent VGA. It should work fine at lower settings on average machines.

Having sex with your best friend, a witch, a prostitute and a princess who was locked up in a tower far far away by a cannibalistic curse, is not neccessarily bad. If of course, you’re a impotent mutant born and bred to fight monsters and power-thirsty mages.
That’s one of the things me learned from Witcher. A game that has really taken me by surprise. Even though the plot is pretty predictable and the charactors filled with cliche, the protaganist of the story really grew on me after a while. Not to mention the half naked women and their juicy Tits.
Same medival timeline, with a mashed up dungeons and dragons influence, the game is pretty decent given the fact that it’s suitable only for adults. Actualy it’s the only game I’ve seen in a while that delivers the whole package (ie., a nice looking interface, superb graphics, well executed story line and innovative gameplay). Crysis was too darn FarCryish, World in Conflict too demanding -even for my 7900GS, and Bioshock with all it’s gloroius philosophy was too darn Systemshockish.
But my unfathomable love towards Witcher really came as a result of the single hand control it gives to the gamer. So one hand on the mouse, the other hand on the ……um Pringles bowl, and I’m off…
P.S. No, seroiusly there’s not a lot of sex. Just a decent game with some references here and there. All in all, worth the buy.
