The Witcher Interactive Comic Book presents the story of Geralt of Rivia – a profesional monster slayer. Cast magic signs, battle monsters, be entangled in a complex intruige and experience The Witcher's world before you start playing the The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition on Xbox 360 and PC (avialable April 17th).
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition features a thoroughly engrossing, mature storyline that defines a new standard for realistic, non-linear game narration. In addition to an epic story, the game features a complex combat system that uniquely combines deep tactical elements with dynamic action. The new, ultra-modern engine provides both beautiful visuals and sophisticated in-game mechanics, putting players in a world more alive and believable than any ever created in a video game. The depth of the gameplay and the mature, non-linear storyline make The Witcher 2 one of the most complex and unique RPGs ever released on consoles.

The Depth of the Ocean but size of a Puddle
I was super excited to read comics as I am a new Witcher fan. I spent a few minutes and I was fully emerged in the comic and it's story. There was drawing signs such as AARD and Igni (my two favorite signs other than quen) and just enjoying a witcher joyride until I flipped a page and was left with "To be continued..." and I have done my research and found that the game is incomplete with no part 2. I mean you could buy the witcher 2 and get yourself a real book but that's not why I downloaded this app. I downloaded it so I can READ COMICS NOT BUY YOUR GAME.
Summary: If you like reading short stories over and over, download this app.
Verdict: I give donkey kong island a 5/5
Absolutely fantastic with a couple minor gripes
First off, this comic is absolutely stunning. Soundtrack is right from the original game with also very nice ambient effect overlapping the experience. Animations are fun to watch and fun to participate in. Story telling is done well.
The problems I had with it were, well mild are just a little detracting from making this a perfect motion comic. 1) some of the intense pages get a good amount of text which is hard to read and impossible to enjoy the art at the same time, when in other suspenseful pages a 3 word text gets a page halt. 2) drawing signs on the iPhone is a bit more difficult due to the smaller screen.
Overall the comic is free fun and enjoyable. Really, really wanting some more issues. CD Projekt RED does brilliant work.
The soundtrack from the game itself flows nicely with the comic, and honestly the only things I found wrong with it was the cliffhanger ending and the drawing signs, which was difficult and detracted from the immersion slightly though I'd like it to be kept in.
