Great game, the things you can do impress me greatly

The Witcher (PC)
Advantages: lots to do, cool fighting, cool talent system, ability to wipe out towns.
Disadvantages: Load times where really slow for me.
This game is very impressive, the game is absolutely huge and the amount of things you can do is insane. The choices you make change the whole game, I spend half the time playing the game doing quests for a whole village of people. Towards the end of it I had to make a choice, and It was such a hard choice. I ended up killing the whole village (the peple who gave me all the quests up until this point!) in order to save one woman haha. I was not sure which option to pick but for some reason I trusted the one woman more than the rest of them.
To my surprise I was shocked when I picked to save her that the rest of them would turn on me, I quickly reacted when they attacked me and wiped them all out. After the fight I was like "whoa! what the hell, as if you can just wipe out important NPS like this!" I looked around and the whole village was dead. The things you can do in this game are really impressive.
There is however one big downfall, and I am not sure if it is due to how powerful your PC is, but I do not think it matters, I believe it's the way the game was coded itself but I could be wrong, the reason I believe this is due to the following:
On my pc on max settings the load times are extremely long even when just going into a small house, I thought maybe this is my PC but I put them on lowest settings, and it was virtually the same load times. I have heard about it taking a while to load for other people but none the less the game is worth waiting for it to load. It is really fun and I look forward to the console versions that are coming out soon.
Who knows maybe the enchanced edition will have faster load times, buy it either way regardless of load times.
Summary: Great game I recommend you give it a try.
