I play these games, and I'm stumbling with the controls, menus, mechanics, etc.. But it seems like maybe it will be worth it for the story and quests, which are excellent.
The first hour or two of the tutorial and the early quests, I thought "ehhh... this isn't a game for me - I'll sell it and go back to KoA:Reckoning". But the next morning I found myself wanting to play Witcher2 again, which is the sign of a game that I'll eventually like, if not love.
Playing on Easy makes combat a simple button masher, which is fine with me. Be aware there's lots of dialog and pretty long cut-scenes between the action.
I'm still not sure if I'm sold on the game as a whole, but getting a grasp of the menus and past the disappointment of the uninteresting loot, I find I'm still being drawn into the game for some reason.
But if you don't like RPGs, it might be a tougher sell. I would highly recommend to try before you buy. Also, it takes some time before things start clicking.
