Summary: This game is definitely worth getting (especially now since the price is low), the game is very immersive. Interesting NPCs, stunning graphics, rich character system. Tons of abilities for your characters to learn. Some interesting and complex labrynths. What keeps it from getting the full 5 stars is certain sections of the plot and quest can get somewhat tedious and slow. Other than that, this game is a good balance of battle strategy, monster bashing, and story line.
Summary: I enjoyed this game and spent time beating it.The problem is that it is too one directional. The play is better than say baldur's gate, mostly because of the new d and d rules.But, baldur's gate was more free, you could roam the country and chose your path.
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.
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.
