Tedious

C. Wright "RPG gamer", Amazon
15 August 2004
  • Summary: After experiencing and enjoying the Baldur's Gate 2 series, I wanted more, so I tried the Icewind Dale series. I enjoyed Icewind Dale : Heart of Winter, but I found Icewind Dale II extremely disappointing. As previous posters have said, the battles are extremely tough, but not only one battle, every battle in the game is very difficult. This affected the games continuity.

A Bit of a Disappointment

Amazon
1 November 2003
  • Summary: This game may be made by most of the creators of the Baldur's Gate series, however, while the game interface may appear to be much the same, the story level certainly isn't. You completely create your full party (up to six characters), adding all of their feats and voices. Although it is possible that in Baldur's Gate you couldn't really fit your NPCs into your dream party, their vivid personalities clearly shone through and they bantered frequently.

If this is a good game, I'd hate to see a bad one

  • Summary: If you never have played a computer RPG based on the Infinity engine, you might get the idea that Icewind Dale II is a great game. The trouble is that the Baldur's Gate series of games have revealed just how much fun a computer RPG can be. Next to them, Icewind Dale II is a cross between a marathon and a bore. I played the game at standard level; it can be played at more difficult levels, and that may make the game more fun -- but I doubt it. The pros: 1.

Marred by incessant cheese and stupid puzzles

Steven Myers, Amazon
29 September 2002
  • Summary: On the surface, this game is basically similar to Baldur's Gate, BG II, Icewind Dale, and Planescape Torment: a Dungeons & Dragons game focusing on a six-member party of adventurers. Unlike its predecessors, it incorporates the 3rd edition D&D rules, which simplify gameplay and add some options for customizing your characters' abilities as they go up in level. The 3rd edition rules work well here, and are an improvement over the previous games.

Nowhere near the others

Lisa Shea "be the change you wish to see in t..., Amazon
1 September 2003
  • Summary: As far role-playing concerned, this game is awful. The replay value is nil, because the plot is too centralized to the game, and you can only go to one place at a time. That would be vaguely annoying if not for the forced play: The areas are not an expansive wilderness packed with quests to complete and people to help.
