This statement conflicts with what you said earlier. The gameplay in the Witcher 2 and Witcher 3 doesn't change significantly after the early game to my knowledge, so you'll be able to tell easily within those first two hours if you like the game or not so you can get a refund (I still don't see how this hurts indies who make short games, but I'm probably missing the point).Endoperez wrote: Show me a review that discusses Witcher 3's tutorial, then, or its first two hours, compared to Witcher 2. Here it's skipped in a single sentence. That's hardly going to be the thing which people decide on. Witcher 3 is open world, 2 isn't, so the games should teach the gameplay in different ways. If that difference doesn't come across in a review, I suppose that a less noticeable difference won't be mentioned either.
This is probably me missing the point again, but it was relevant to say.
The Witcher 3 has a 2 hour opening scene? Anyways, I browsed Steam's user reviews for the Witcher 3 and I didn't find too many reviews (I skimmed however so you may have better luck then I if you look yourself, sorry) mentioning the tutorial. I briefly skimmed Kotaku's and Rock Paper Shotgun's reviews and I didn't find anything in Kotaku's review (Like I said SKIMMED. I did not read through it thoroughly.) and I don't have time right now to even find Rock Paper Shotgun's review. I forgot to check Polygon before writing this, I am so good at arguments I know.
