Being a huge fan of the universe of Sapkowski's "The Witcher" I own the books and have even considered learning Polish so I can read the books that have not been translated into English yet. As you could probably guess, I was excited when I got another opportunity to take control of Geralt of Rivia (The Main character aka "The Witcher") and begin a great and dark journey into the politically controversial fantasy world I had fallen for back when it was only shown to me by words written on pages. But despite that, I cannot support the idea of allowing children to experience this world while they are still so young. Violence in the forms of abuse, rape, oppression, torture and genocide are apparent in the heavy atmosphere of The Witcher 2. The violence is not as simple and straight-forward as you might see it in many other M rated titles, it is far more vicious and despicable. Drug and alcohol use is a must for both your character (Geralt) and the people surrounding you. (This included drugs similar to opium, hallucinogens, etc) Profanity by the use of every word you can likely think of (for clarification: The "F" word and all others as vulgar and lesser.) Blood and gore on par with what you might see in the popular television show "The Walking Dead" including dismemberment and frequent bloodshed through combat and ritual. Also, some of the most graphically displayed sexuality and nudity known to the gaming universe. These instances of sexual activity are either story-driven or pointless depending on player choice. A player can engage in romances with characters like "Triss Merigold" and "Ves". These romances are deep and romantic, but the pay-off for devotion to these characters is sex displayed with full nudity including breasts, buttocks and genital regions, explicit sexual movements in intercourse, sodomy, etc. and dirty talk along with moaning and pleasured screaming. Yeah, it is extremely graphic. The end point is that this game contains absolutely everything it can when it comes to being rated M for Mature, more so than other titles like "Grand Theft Auto" and "Call of Duty". Does this content litter the game? Absolutely not. It all serves its purpose. Whether or not you and I can agree on the necessity of graphic sexuality being present in a game doesn't matter. The point is, it is there, and you have to decide whether or not that is something YOU believe is alright for your children or even yourself to play for the sake of recreation. My advice? If you watch "Game of Thrones" on HBO, then you have already experienced the maturity this game contains. But if your children or yourself haven't watched/played something with as much mature content as this game, than this game is probably not suited for your lifestyle. Thanks for reading!
