fun game

Pam, Amazon
23 August 2013
  • Summary: I always enjoyed this series and the Baldur's Gate games. I missed this one when it came out and was pleased to see it was available so I knew I must play this last one. I'm glad I did.

User Review

23 October 2011
  • 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.

Satisfying hack & slash

Samy Merchi, Amazon

  • 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...

A Worthy Successor to an Instant Classic

  • Summary: I still remember the reason I got the original Icewind Dale. I was simply bored out of my mind, disappointed with Diablo II, and looking for more Baldur's Gate while waiting for the sequel to be released.

More enjoyable than the first thanks partly to 3E D&D rules.

CMC "Diamondfist", Amazon
9 September 2002
  • Summary: I was somewhat pleased with Icewind Dale; due to a few issues I had with the game, I thought myself through with Black Isle Studios, but upon hearing about the release of their sequel Icewind Dale 2, and their implementing 3rd Edition D&D rules I decided to give it another shot.

Not Baldur's Gate, but still a good game.

Sorceror, Amazon
17 May 2012
  • Summary: This game was too good to be left with the meagre review here. Using the same game engine as Baldur's Gate, arguably the best computer game EVER, this is more of an inferior production line model. This is Dungeons and Dragons for the computer.

Improvement on the original, but still not the best in the genre

sagat, Dooyoo

  • Excerpt: Icewind Dale 2 once again returns us to the spine of world, as evil is afoot and humanity must be saved! Taking control of a party of up to six characters, you must be the hero- destroying monsters, solving puzzles and hoarding gold!

Very good, but no Baldur's Gate 2

Geoffrey Millar, Amazon
19 October 2007
  • Summary: I can't recall when this came out, but I bought and played it after playing Baldur's Gate 2, easily the best RPG and one of the best PC games ever. Icewind Dale 2 looks great, plays well enough, but lacks the scripting and character interraction which, among other features, made Baldur's Gate 2 so...

A good CRPG

KovalisDarkfire, Amazon
18 August 2004
  • 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.
