It has been a long wait for the console version of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings – Enhanced edition. Eleven months after the PC release this newly reworked version hits Xbox 360 but was it worth the wait? If you’re an RPG veteran then the answer is a resounding hell yes, though newbies may find themselves treading water, a little outside of their comfort zone.

While The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings takes a lot for granted, with RPG convention knowledge a must, those that delve into its depths will find it a layered and rewarding experience with many larger social issues, such as racism, deftly handled.

“There’s a grittier, more down to earth feeling (if that’s possible) to this fantastic adventure due to the adult themed concepts (no, I don’t mean boobies) and branching mission structure. Overtones of racism with most non-humans herded into slum-like ghettos feel eerily real reflecting modern era struggles for equality and add significantly more weight to your decisions. Things aren’t always black and white with your role as a witcher to distinguish between the two and choose your own shades of grey.”
