Ships Ahoy - The Witcher 2

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is now available, offering CD Projekt RED's sequel to their 2007 action/RPG. The game is available in stores, and the Digital Premium Edition is available for download from Direct2Drive, GamersGate, GOG.com, Impulse, and Steam. Here's word:

The second installment in the RPG saga about the Witcher, Geralt of Rivia, features a thoroughly engrossing, mature storyline defining new standards for thought-provoking, non-linear game narration. In addition to an epic story, the game features an original, brutal combat system that uniquely combines tactical elements with dynamic action. A new, modern game engine, responsible both for beautiful visuals and sophisticated game mechanics puts players in the most lively and believable world ever created in an RPG game. A captivating story, dynamic combat system, beautiful graphics, and everything else that made the original Witcher such a great game are now executed in a much more advanced and sophisticated way.

First Impression:

Started game on hard, saw some cool cutscenes, and a bit of interactivity. Went into the first action sequence.

Pros - Game looks cool, seems similar to the first (enjoyed the first, even finished it before enhance edition).

Cons - Impossible to beat first action sequence. The tutorial tips fill up half the screen and are impossible to read while trying to fight and dodge omnipresent fire that drains health to zero. Some sort of lag is causing the game to feel muddy, sometimes hard to get bearings in tight areas with the muddy view (I'll have to tweak some settings to fix that)

Final thought, wait for a few patches, or a tweak guide so I can get it fine tuned for my computer.
