Witcher 2 360 footage

This guy has a review copy of the game and has been uploading videos. He sucks at playing, but if anyone is curious how the game looks on the 360 here you go:

I saw a comparison between PC and 360. It doesn't look bad on 360. Probably one of the better looking 360 games.

It's noticeably downgraded compared to the "high" setting PC game, and the PC version was only 720p for the video and seemed to be lacking AA.

So why does he carry two swords around if he ever only uses one? Also looks like an elf.

One sword is steel and the other is silver. The lore reasons are:

Steel is for use against non-monsters such as humans, elves and dwarves. The steel has a hard time penetrating monster hides.

The silver sword isn't used against non-monsters since the metal is too soft and valuable to risk damaging against armor. But monsters have a weakness to it, so it is used against them.

That makes no sense at all. So in Witcher everybody said fuck it all monsters are werewo...weak to silver?

Monsters in the Witcher aren't native to the world, they came from another dimension after an event called The Conjunction. I guess they all have something in common that makes them vulnerable to silver.

Ahh that makes sense, much like today, we have a special fork used for salads only.

There's something about the steel sword having to be made from meteorite iron as well, since monsters have a weakness to it.

The silver sword is special and reserved for vampires/werewolves, etc. not just any monster.

Well I guess the witcher equivalent would be a single sword that can do monsters and non monsters. I guess he have could just tossed in a bit of sliver into the alloy mix that was used to make his STEEL sword.

I'm playing it as well. I completed the PC version back in May, and when I heard it was coming to the 360 I waited to do a second play-through on that platform. I am only a few hours into it, but this is a very nice port. While the graphic quality is not up to par with a nice PC, it still is very good and one of the nicest 360 RPGs to date. The controller works well, and all the extra goodies will be worth it. Time for some Witchery work!

Can you wear different armours and use different weapons? Or are you stuck with the hair metal hair and the salad forks?

I bought it as well. It takes some getting used to. I am still learning how to do things because the control scheme isn't very complex, there is just a lot to it.

But so far, a few hours into it, I am having fun. So far, I can say that I didn't waste my money.

You can change your shirt, pants, gloves and boots. There are a few different weapon types, but your swords are the most effective. You can customize them with different types of enhancements.

So if you already played this on PC is it worth purshasing on the 360? I had a blast with it on the PC. I loved the first one too.

No, the content is the same in both versions. But PC has better graphics, 360 has a better controller setup (they didn't add the improved gamepad controls to the PC for some reason).
