I was really disappointed with this game. I was actually a little offended by it, not because I'm a prude (though prudish I most certainly am) but because it just felt so unintelligent. RPGs used to cater exclusively people that like to read and think and all of that stuff; The Witcher felt like a slap in the face.

Did you play the original version or the Enhanced Edition? The latter is a huge improvement on all fronts, particularly in the script. Makes things a lot less questionable... though you do go to work on bitches at the drop of a hat. But that's how things should be, dammit!

Original version, straight out of the box.

I don't think not having reams of text to go through equates to an unintelligent game. Two of my favourite RPGs of all time - Bloodlines and Mass Effect - have virtually none of it. The Witcher is a happy middle ground - you can read excerpts from books, but it's generally just a page or so of readable material.

I'm still surprised at how much I enjoyed this game - but I really, genuinely did.

Just had a thought - there's an enormous chance that The Witcher 'patched itself' to the new version when I installed it. Almost all the gripes that were supposedly corrected in the update were things I didn't notice at all in the version I played, which would perhaps explain the 'two marks increase' that most reviews seemed to credit the new version with.
