Yeah, I'll second this. I'd get it over The Witcher--the first one at least was really really boring. It might have some fairy interesting story-telling going on, but I stopped caring after the first few hours of inane combat. Also the narrative is harmed by the jarringly cheesy "romantic" encounters.

You might take a look at Gothic II and/or Risen.... and perhaps Fable if you're up for a simplistic though entertaining RPG.
