100,000 in Poland, and Million in 8 languages

Yeah, if that isn't a testament to how great this game is, then I don't know what would be.

That's because it's a busy time this year and most reviewer would probably only give it a few hours or copy their review from elsewhere. Those who actually review the game give it a great score. Take Gamespot, usually they are pretty hard on games and nit pick over the smallest issue. They gave it an 8.5 saying it's one of the most engrossing RPGs ever made and it is. Right up with Planscape Torment.

I also notice the only ones here who speak ill of the game also admit to never playing it...

I also ROFL at the comment about it not selling well. It shows what you can achieve you if you make a game that appeals to the whole adult world, not just spoilt frat boys.

What I wonder is if it is not selling well in the US but selling great in the EU because anyone who wanted to buy this game knew it would be censored in the US.

No i do not think that this is the problem for the low game sales in USA

I think that the average USA citizen is just a snob in products that are made from another country

Typical American way of thinking...

""WHAT !!?!!?!
Witcher is made by Europeans

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !!!

F*ck European midgets
i only buy American made products"""

Too bad for them that Crysis is also made by a European company...

The problem is not that. In each country the means overrated the local games. In Spain, Jericho or Commandos Strike Force is overvalued in the reviews. In USA happens the same with developers like Bungie, Valve, Infinity or Bersheda. The problem is that the USA are web reference worldwide. The site most important is my country has like reference I.G.N and Gamespot.

It is known in the industry that the notes of the Web's most important in USA, as I.G.N, and Gamespot influence most websites worldwide. This happens also with games in Canada or Western Europe for big publisers as EA or Ubisoft that are partly or wholly USA corporations . Or simply, with products that have spent a lot of money on marketing,a big part of that money is for the webs and magacines .

But not is a problem of the gamers , you see in this forum or another forums the great opinion of the USA gamers, is similar a the gamers and the other countries . And the books of Gerald of Rivia are absoluty unknow in USA

look at the user comments, everywhere you go this game gets nothing but praises from actual players.
I haven't been... just commenting on why it wasn't selling... I bought it and think it's great.
