I tried Witcher 2 during a free weekend. Having never played it or the original, I opted into the tutorial. And it went on...and on...and on...describing every single system in the game. After getting simultaneously bored and overwhelmed, I quit and uninstalled.
Do you really need to know everything right at the beginning of the game? If so, this is not the game for me.
And even then, there has to be a better way to present the game's systems without an hour-long (or longer) tutorial.
On second thought, let's not go to TechReport. Tis a silly place.
