The reqs. for The Witcher aren't that steep, are they? I'd still suggest you play the second game regardless. There are some solid connections between the two, but the second still stands on its own. Elsewise I don't think CD Projekt RED would have released it on 360 in the first place.
Minimum system requirements: Windows XP, Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz or AMD Athlon 64 +2800, 1 GB RAM for Windows XP, 1.5 GB for Vista, NVIDIA GeForce 6600 or ATI Radeon 9800 or better, 8.5 GB available hard drive space, DirectX 9.0c compliant soundcard
Minimum requirements for the first game. They've probably changed since the enhanced edition was released.
I'm still playing Dragon's Dogma: another one of those titles that like to pad hours by hefting needless running onto your shoulders. It's already beginning to grow dull (again), especially given the Monster Hunter bludgeon, bludgeon, bludgeon, evade, bludgeon, bludgeon, bludgeon, evade, repeat one hundred times style of attacking the more behemoth beasts.
But I suppose it's better than wasting $65. The opening theme is pretty neat. And I can use a mace. Even if that means crippling the knight class by not using a shield and only running around with a mace.
