Play a game where your choices really matter and where you affect the fate of individuals, communities, and entire kingdoms. Fight blood-thirsty monsters and navigate a web of schemes, lies, and political intrigue in one of the best looking games ever to come to Mac.

You are Geralt of Rivia, a witcher, a member of a mysterious caste of professional beast-slayers created through brutal training and mutation. Witchers specialize in tracking down and killing monsters. Long gone are the days when beasts lived near human settlements in every forest and cave, and the folk of the Northern Kingdoms held witchers in high regard. The age of elf and dwarf massacres has come, a time when men rival monsters in the evil they do, a time when mutated witchers are regarded as dangerous outcasts, neither human nor nonhuman. Amidst this chaos, Geralt is drawn into a bloody conspiracy. Accused of killing a king, the witcher embarks on a solitary quest to clear his name and uncover the mysteries of his past.

GAME FEATURES:
* One of the best RPGs to come to Mac – Award-winning story, graphics, and characters bring the game world to life.
* Brutal combat – Spectacular, tactical, dynamic combat gives you real time control of the action and sword-fighting.
* Vast, believable game world – Based on a best-selling series of novels, the setting is rich with mythology, rife with conflict, and ravaged by monsters and men alike.
* Stunning graphics – We promise you the best-looking game on Mac, and we mean it.

Version 1.01
Review by hlb

Don't let the check tool turn you away! - As an owner of a 27" iMac, 2.8 GHZ Core i7, 12 GB 1067 DDR3, ATI Radeon HD 4850 512 MB, running OS 10.8.2, I doubted that I could run this, and indeed the developer's check tool bluntly informed me that my system was not compatible. However, this does not mean you'll get a "Sorry, the application won't run" message when you try to fire up this game. Instead, you need to educate yourself a bit about what its many different graphics settings do and how they affect performance, and hunker down for some informed tweaking. Running this title at a resolution of 2560x1440 isn't doable on my system, but at 1920×1080, or better yet, 1600x900, with some of the "expensive" options reduced or disabled, the Witcher II runs nicely on my Mac, and still looks very fine indeed. Shadows, SSAO, Cinematic Depth of Field, and the slightly nauseating Motion Blur are some of the GPU-hungrier settings, and it's safe to say that you can live without them. The game won't look the way it does in the incredible screen shots we've all seen on the web, and you won't likely squeeze 60 FPS out of it, either—but it's playable! And with a title that offers such depth of story, that's half the game, to say the least.

Review by MarkSeaTown

Unplayable on rMBP - This game is completely unplayable on the top-of-the-line Retina Macbook Pro. Can I get my money back? Very sloppily ported. Not sure why it is this clunky.

Version 1.1.1
Review by Mysteryguitarguy

Good game, but a little hard to get through - The game is a weird one. The RPG is beautiful, with some of the best graphics to date, but the technical issues, like framerate (even on recent hardware, its nearly impossible to run on higher settings), and convoluted story kind of bog the experience down. It’s best to play the first one, or read the novellas before trying to embark on this game’s quest because the story is so deep, to get the full impact, some background knowledge is needed. If you’re not at all going to pay attention to that, then the game is good, but not great.
