Moving right along chapter 2, really enjoying myself: rediscovering Vizima, a brilliantly realized and vibrant digital city that, unlike most cities in RPGs, actually feels lived in and alive. I also think that the story starts to get really good in chapter 2 with a multi-layered investigation that sends you all around the city chasing down leads and questioning suspects. I really like how you get the sense that investigation is as important to Geralt's line of work as the actual monster-killing that his craft is known for. There are very few games that really give a good sense of the job that a character performs on a regular basis: most games take place in such unusual circumstances that you never get a sense of what day-to-day life is like for the hero, and while The Witcher doesn't take place during usual circumstances for Geralt, he does do a lot of side jobs that is very much like what you imagine he would do on a regular basis. It doesn't seem like a very exciting feature, but it just makes the whole experience seem that much more authentic and the world that much better.
