Posted on January 23, 2008, Chris Zero Punctuation Takes on The Witcher
As you’ve no doubt realized by reading Gaming Today, a good number of our staff is fairly high on The Witcher, a PC RPG from CD Projekt. Shawn highly praised it, and I can’t think of any instance where anyone actually wrote anything negative about it.
And that’s exactly why they might not join the rest of us in laughing at Zero Punctuation’s latest review of The Witcher, which, to say the least, isn’t exactly glowing. Quite the contrary, in fact; Yahtzee labeled it as a ‘First Impression’ because he couldn’t play it long enough to justify it any longer than a few hours – he’d rather go do the laundry or something else less mundane.
And apparently the game’s manual is thick enough that you could beat a goat to death with it. For some reason, I don’t find this to be surprising at all.
Stick around after the review for an extra segment where Yahtzee shows off his voiceover talent.
