Summary: More hardcore than its predecessor this game delights in placing you in very tough situations repeatedly. I got tired of the 'now get out of that' scenario quite quickly and despite my affinity for IE games I only just mustered the motivation to finish the game.

Summary: A second Icewind Dale, set many years after the first game, with a new player-created party following in the characters' footsteps. This game tries to be more than the first: it's scattered with bits of side plot, puzzles, and strange items, and it uses the new (at the time) and better D&D 3E ruleset.

Summary: This game is probably is one of the BEST RPGs ever. The atmosphere, is exhilarating, the combat is fun, You get to create your own party, this thing is just so good. If you like games, Then BUY this right away.
Summary: excellent game, true to D&D rules, cool that you make your whole party. not as good story wise as BG or BGII, but fun either way. also runs well on all platforms unlike many of the other D&D games just after its time
Summary: This Fantasy RPG is a wonderfully well plotted adventure, with enough character depth to keep you interested even when the action is at a lull, wonderfully well wrought artwork and plenty of choices for your characters makes this a continuing challenge and a joy to play.
Summary: Can't give this a 10 as perfect scores must be reserved for perfect games, viz. Baldur's Gate I & 2, Torment. But this and the first Icewind Dale are certainly worthy of the next rank. If you love fantasy RPGs every BioWare/Black Isle Infinity Engine game is a must because they're quite simply the best CRPGs ever created, eclipsing Oblivion, The Witcher, NWN et al, both for their storylines (which are better than most novels) and quality of the writing and imagination in...
