The original Witcher game received many awards including RPG of the Year from IGN, PC Gamer, GameSpy, and GameSpot. CDProjekt, hoping to further this great success, recently released an entirely updated version of the game with improvements covering essentially every aspect of the game. 80% faster load times, vastly improved graphics, new quests, and all-new dubbing in 8 different languages are just a few of the improvements that were put in to enhance the original award-winning game. This is all quite impressive, but does the game fare well under the Usagi’s metaphorical gaming microscope?

Star Wars is a fickle mistress. She makes you feel loved and good about yourself with movies like Episodes IV – VI and then when you think the wonderful relationship is over, wait! There’s hope with Episodes I – III, but promises of more prove just to be further evidence that the relationship is tired and done. It’s not that different in the game world, there are signs, mere hints that the relationship could be great with games like Rogue Squadron (next-gen follow up, please!), Knights of the Old Republic and yes, OK maybe even Lego Star Wars. But then there’s so much heart ache with the multitude of bad games that make you wonder what you’re still in it for. Well, which of the two categories does Force Unleashed fall into? Surprisingly, a bit of both.
