Great Forgotten Realms game

grayshinobi, Ebay
11 May 2006
  • Summary: Icewind Dale II is packed with entertaining storylines and encounters. This game makes use of the 3rd Edition rules reasonably well. Black Isle Studios no longer exists, so getting the patches for this game may be difficult. Overall, Icewind Dale II is well worth playing and is a lot of fun.

A great sequel of Icewind Dale 1

shadow_pa..., Ciao
15 May 2004
  • Excerpt: "...2 is the sequel of Icewind Dale and keeps the tradition of a Baldur's Gate game with more action and less story and sub quests. At the begining of the game, you can choose one of the premade partys or make your own that go up to six party members. You have available all the classes (10) of the 3.0 d&d players handbook and the races of the Forgotten Realms Campaign setting wich allows you to make a lot of combinations and also helps to the replayability ...
  • Pros: d&d 3rd edition rules, infinity engine, storyline
  • Cons: linear

One heck of a game

Anna Smith "halo5", Amazon

  • Summary: Okay, I looked at this game for quite a while (over the period of several weeks) trying to decide whether to buy it or not. Finally, I needed something new to play (waiting for NWN:HotU to come out) and caved in. Why not? I enjoyed the freedom to totally and completely create my characters.

A good CRPG

KovalisDarkfire, Amazon
31 July 2003
  • Summary: If you're looking for some good classic D&D hack and slash action, this game is for you. Using the D&D 3rd edition rule set, there are many, many options to explore when creating characters and gaining levels. Several different races, classes, feats, skills, abilities, and also hundreds of powerful items and spells. Explore your options with anything from a mighty barbarian to a powerful wizard, and everything between, there's no getting bored with this game.

Satisfying hack & slash

Samy Merchi, Amazon
13 May 2003
  • Summary: First of all, if you expect or hope for meaningful character interactions, go away. Icewind Dale 2 is hack and slash. True, it's glazed by some nice voice acting, beautiful locales, villains that are satisfying to kill (and even some that you half don't want to kill) -- but in the end, the game is linear, and there is really only one way to complete it.

A surprisingly riveting last hurrah

SirLink, Ciao
25 April 2003
  • Excerpt: "...in November 1998. That makes Icewind Dale II Black Isle’s last tango with yesterday’s golden-child technology. But everything you may be thinking about this game is probably wrong. Like an aging veteran who somehow crafts one last no-hitter, Icewind Dale II defies the odds, demonstrating that gripping gameplay and design finesse can rise for a fitting conclusion. With some nifty tweaks to the engine, A-class writing, and a dazzling implementation ...
  • Pros: Impressive storyline; great use of a sturdy engine
  • Cons: Some of the seams are showing in the engine; tiresome journal system

The goblin party has been moving southwards destroying everything in its path and the Lord of Targos has requested any available help from ...
  • Pros: A "cool" Rpg game that will keep you occupied for hours
  • Cons: the setting might be a bit far featched for some

  • Summary: Comme Icewind Dale premier du nom, ce second opus est bourrin même s'il l'est globalement moins et qu'il offre pas mal de quête sympas. Mais on reste malheureusement toujours un sérieux cran en retrait par rapport aux Baldur's Gate... Dommage...
