Yeah I'm not thrilled with that comparison to be honest. ME2 is a fine game, I just don't think its a good example of an RPG. Ahh well, I'm not reading too much into one review.archaven said:Sorry to not offend anyone but how can they compare MASS EFFECT 2 with TW2? ME series looks more of a console game ported to PC to me.. in my most own opinion...
You fail to see he is comparing story and quality not games as a wholeChauntea said:
I dunno, ME2 wasn't very large in scope. But it is the best comparison. A lot of previewers have been comparing TW2 to ME2 also because their predecessors were very different ME1 to ME2 had quite a few changes to it as does TW1 to TW2, only the later is changed much more.Kodaemon said:Yup. Both are story-driven action-rpgs with a big scope, created with high production values.
CD Projekt Red clearly took a cue from BioWare when it comes to choice-driven story with actual impact on the plot and narrative. Perhaps a better comparison would be Dragon Age, however both developers focus greatly on story with consequence, as well as fun and action-packed combat.I will say one thing though, The Witcher 2 is going to completely obliterate Dragon Age 2 in every possible way. BioWare will probably have to completely overhaul the IP yet again if they really want to compete in this ever competitive market.Chauntea said:He is comparing Witcher 2 to Mass Effect.This review officially does no exist for me.ps: I love Mass Effect, mind you, but its an action rpg.
Maybe it lost something in translation, as in "the main quest, unhurried... " ?In any case, I rarely go by reviews, because reviews are highly subjective.slimgrin said:"Unhurried gameplay takes about 24 hours."They must be joking. The game is really that short?slimgrin said:A short summary of the CD-Action review is now up on their website, in english: http://www.cdaction.pl/news-19164-2/wiedzmin-2-zabojcy-krolow--recenzja-pierwsza-na-swiecie.htmlI'll still be posting a full translation here later today.
Pardon me, what?CDPR had made this design decision when they did TW1. They were always repeating that decisions are most important part of the game (and this is reflected from The Witcher books). So they (I mean CDPR and Bioware) took this approach simultaneously and "develop" it both in their own way.heerox328 said:CD Projekt Red clearly took a cue from BioWare when it comes to choice-driven story with actual impact on the plot and narrative.
