the controls and engine of this game are mega crap. If I knew that first I would have to learn nonsense from the keyboard, I would not even buy it. The Witcher 1 was great, this is the shit here.
I thought W1 was great. So far, W2 is BARF! I've spent 2 hours watching cut scenes in order to play about 30 minutes. I wanted to play a game, not watch cheesy videos.
The QTEs are ridiculous. Turned them off, but still have to put up with scenes like fist-fight where the prompts flash so quick I can't tell what they say.
Inventory much worse than W1 and you can't even put potions in a quick slot. Character development and alchemy also much worse.
