Voice acting will probably get better as they progress. Can't wait for witcher 2.

Looks as boring and uninspired as the first one.

voice acting is usually added at the last stages, same time when translations are done

global, actually I have found that witcher does a good job of creating a look of its own. My biggest turn off was for an RPG, your characters growth and attacks were pretty limited. RPGs that dont feature class systems of a type are not an RPG imo. Also the land wasnt open ended, very "zone" like. Heres to hoping the areas outside the cities are bigger.

then you totally missed the point of the game. witcher is a story about single witcher named Geralt. He has his own character, story that can't be changed.

you can't just magically make him a mage or ranger. he is what he is

I hope this game works as well in 3D as the first one.

nekrosoft...to be blunt..why the hell not? Every final fantasy game has a main character whos story can't be changed... yet have no problem throwing multiple classes at you. Not allowing partners and not allowing you to tailor your attacking roll is a good way to make your game forgettable.

I really need to replay the original again.
Maybe this time as a "bad" Geralt

read the books, Geralt is what he is, you play as Geralt in Witcher. that can't be changed. If for some reason in future Witcher games they allow you to play as different character lets say newly recruited witcher, then you will have more choices at classes, but even still witcher is a witcher meaning master swordsmen with bit of alchemy, they can't be mages or some other exotic classes.

so to answer your why not questions, answer is simple, then the character wouldn't be Geralt of Rivia aka White Wolf

I know it's still alpha, but I hope that the environment isn't so static. With all that wind blowing it had no effect on the guards uniforms, Geralt's hair or even the trees. It all looked cool until I noticed that then it just took me right out of the game.

If they can at least optimize the performance of the game dramatically over the first one and make the combat better which they talked about.... I think it will be a pretty decent game.
