The Witcher (from Polish: ''Wiedźmin'') is a computer role-playing game for the PC developed by CD Projekt RED STUDIO and published by CD Projekt in Poland and Atari for the rest of the world. The game is based on the book series of the same name by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. The game utilizes BioWare's proprietary Aurora Engine. It was released in Europe and North America in October 2007. CD Projekt spent $11 million to develop the game and its Enhanced Edition and as of March 6, 2009, the game has sold 1.2 million copies worldwide. A console version using an entirely new engine and combat system, titled The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf, was to be released in Fall 2009, but was suspended, due to a high risk that the final product wouldn't meet the quality expectations, and so, CD Projekt RED is already working on another major project.

The Witcher takes place in a medieval fantasy world and follows the story of Geralt, one of a few remaining "witchers"—traveling monster hunters for hire, gifted with unnatural powers. The game's system of "moral choices" as part of the storyline was noted for its time-delayed consequences and lack of black-and-white morality.

I love this game! Wanted to see if anyone else played it. One of my favorite computer games currently. So anyone else here play it?

I just got it recently cause it was on a sale on Steam for $5. Only did the prologue. It looks pretty interesting I guess, but so far the combat seems extremely repetitive (make 3 clicks, do exactly the same moves every time lol).

It was okay I suppose. I roll-played Geralt as a selfish jerk that only cared about money.

The game is okay but not much more than that.

I've played it through twice now, the harder difficulty brings out much more of the game as it will force you to use alchemy to survive.

I enjoyed the story and I'm a sucker for single character goes out and saves the world games, the ending fight is saddening to say the least.

I went along with the elves, I did that for each of my playthroughs so I dont know what could be said for the others. Elves just seemed like the reasonable choice for someone going for chaotic good, free the peoples, and save the world mode.

Vizima outskirts, as a first chapter no less, can be enough to turn you on to the game. The epilogue for the chapter, should you choose to save miss witch, is a great definition of Geralts ability to denounce opposing parties intelligently and still have the skill to just go ahead and chop em all up for their inability to see their wrong-doing.

It's an ok game, I know that it's from 2007, but I still found some things to be really annoying, like the animations and models were rather bad. But still a good game with a nice story and an interesting combat system.
