Summary: The game is good but not as good as Icewind Dale 1.The sprites are smaller and the music not so hypnotizing as it was on the first game.At the plus side it has more races and classes to choose your characters from and it has a chalenging difficulty.At most battles you must use your mind to win not blund force.The final battle is really fun.
Summary: Your party will be a solid chainsaw of death halfway through the game. There are a plethora of patches and fixes out there to make the enjoyment all the more, but even without; it's the infinity engine with a solid story and TONS of monster killing goodness. Barring one ANNOYING part in the middle, this is almost a perfect CRPG.
Summary: if you played baldurs gate or icewind dale 1 you know what to expect. Same graphics, same game play, art is really cool. This is hack and slash like the others, but i found this game really boring...by chapter 3 i could not wait to get this game over and done with. At least the other games had a story that was interesting to follow... this time it fails.
Summary: The last game to use the Infinity engine, it represents the technical pinnacle of old-school 2D cRPGs. It was also the first game to use, although not fully implemented due to the engine's limitations, the Dungeons&Dragons 3rd edition ruleset. Although noticeably lacking in plot compared to such giants as Baldur's Gate and Torment, IWD2 caters an enjoyable, action-packed experience, as the journey you embark on with a party of custom charaters will throughoutly test you...
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. The villains I thought were unispiring as were a lot of the locations.
