"Know what they're doing"... welllll... we'll see. Graphically, the Witcher 2 was just wonderful. Had me drooling. I can hardly remember the story though, and that is what really counts. Then again, they were following in the footsteps of Geralt, whose past is completely unknown to me, and the long list of royal bloodlines, place names and feuds showed the utmost tendency to tire me. They have a lot more options with Cyberpunk: A new, completely unknown main character (by the making of the player OR one whose past is actually explained and looked into in the game); a new, far more interesting level up system (I hope they're NOT using the actual p&p RPG one); more opportunity for the designers to go creative in story and environments (far less risk of infringing canon); more opportunity to include quirky and funny bits to suggest human diversity in an essentially dark atmosphere; more opportunity for visual diversity in NPCs; more opportunity to give the player the option to investigate/travel/return to certain areas whenever he pleases ("open world" is too big a world, but revisiting old places really missed in TW2); and so on and so on.
I more or less hope this is the Anachronox 2 I have been waiting for.
