Summary: Although MS's game catalogue lists Icewind Dale and Heart of Winter as "compatilbe with XP" it does not nessecarily mean it Officially works and may run not on your system. This game, as with BG2 Collection(see my review) does NOT need to be re-released UNLESS you patch it for XP officially.
Summary: I like the game, but to me there is nothing that really stands out about it. It does follow D&D rules pretty good, even with the attacks and rolls to save and etc. The graphics are average. One thing that gets me is the fact that I feel like I go back and forth back and forth.
Maybe worth a look if you enjoyed Baldur's Gate, just don't expect too much

Excerpt: Icewind Dale should have been great. Coming from the same pedigree that gave us the truly epic Baldur's Gate and the brilliantly imaginative Planescape: Torment, it promised an epic, multi-part RPG adventure across frozen landscapes with plenty to explore and great quests to undertake.
Summary: Hi, I've only played the first Icewind Dale in the set and I know it's not supposed to be BG3, but it's not particularly interesting anyway. The plot doesn't seem to emerge and there are no memorable characters, whereas the other Infinity Engine games from Black Isle are stacked to the rafters with...
Basic and bland fare from the creators of Baldur's Gate

Summary: I was really looking forward to Icewind Dale. After the concept behind the hugely playable Baldur's Gate was taken forward, in Planescape: Torment I thought that IWD would be even better. But it's not. It has taken a step backwards from P:T.
Summary: Being very new to this type of game I was led into buying it thru the reviews on these pages. Before this game I had played Civ II, Longest Journey and Pharaoh, the latter being absolutely brilliant and playable time after time,I shall never pass it on to anyone.
Summary: The major problem with Icewind Dale was that it came too late. It used the infinity engine to good effect at times, but in comparison to the 2 games that preceeded it (Baldurs Gate and Planescape: Torment) it's severely lacking.
