The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition is a bigger, better and more ambitious project than the first game. We see that from the beginning of the game, during the prologue. From the start, it sets itself apart from other RPG games as a sort of "mature" game, where you can see the ugly side of society. You start in service of King Foltest, whom you saved at the end of the first game, but after he is killed, you stand accused for his murder and during the rest of the game you have to put the pieces of the puzzle together and find the real culprit. There are a lot of side missions as well, where you help locals to get rid of monsters or solve some other problems. The fighting part of the game is similar to the previous one: you have to adjust the style depending on the size and speed of your opponents. There are still two swords that Geralt carries: steel for human and silver for monsters. The role of magic is assigned to Witchers signs, and you can make different potions from the ingredients that you take from plants and dead monsters. There are three types of skills that you can develop: swordfight, use of signs and alchemy. To keep you occupied while not on missions, there are also mini-games, which can help you earn some more money to spend on different pieces of equipment.
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition is indeed an RPG, but even within the world of RPG's, it is unique. The Witcher series are based on books written by a polish author. The games are steeped in the mythology of the books, and Witcher 2 simply thrusts you into this world with little explanation. No baby steps here. You learn from context that your character is a Witcher, which is a supernatural being that folks hire to slay monsters. The world of the Witcher 2 is vast, detailed, and filled with competing factions with a long history of distrust and racism. Humans detest non-humans (elves and dwarfs). Elves have been subjected to pogroms and massacres, and live in the woods as rebels. The Witcher's world is divided amongst competing kingdoms, and the kings wage wars based on petty differences. This is a detailed, rich world filled with interesting characters.
