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. Being something of a geek for computer RPGs, I bought this with anticpation levels high. I couldn't wait to stock up on broadswords, virtual d20 dice and see what was in store.

  • Excerpt: This game comes from Black Isle who have become infamous for the likes of Baldur's Gate, Planescape: Torment and the Fallout games. This should bode well for Icewind Dale and thats a big should... The first obvious difference is that rather than focusing on the story of one character who can hook up with some other interesting characters along the way, you create up to six of your own straight away.

  • Excerpt: Icewind Dale by Black Isle Studios & Interplay is outwardly very similar to Baldurs Gate & Torment as indeed it should given that it uses the same basic engine although all three have been heavily tailored preventing the transfer of characters between games. In IWD this means it is possible to create characters for all 6 slots unlike in Torment or single player Baldurs Gate (you can do this in BG but only in multiplay mode) although it would have been useful if the...

  • Excerpt: Okay first off Icewind Dale ain't wordy but don't worry because in a hack and slash rpg too many words spoil the game so to speak. So anyway if one were to lay these things out in a line planescape would be extra wordy, Baldur's Gate 2 not so much and Icewind Dale by comparison very little. Just like with steaks it depends what you like.

  • Excerpt: Try to tell me that you have not got bored in some great RPG with making your characters' personalities. Or try to tell me that you did not get bored of the repetetive nature of the useless dead ends in the gameplay. Well, if your answer to this question is either a no or an emphatic yes, you will find that parts of this game are ever so slightly tedious. Or not quite so slightly.

Icewind Dale: casse DALE.....bof!!

  • Excerpt: Icewindale est un bon jeu, les graphismes sont de bonne qualités, le jeu est clair et limpide. Seules de vieilles machines ne peuvent demarrer le jeu car il est conseillé d'avoir un processeur 266 avec 64 mo de ram alors qu un pentium 500 avec 32 mo de ram suffit. Environ une quarantaine d'heures de jeu suffisent pour le terminer.
  • Pros: personnage, explication
  • Cons: graphisme, magie

Icewind Dale: Un manque total d'originalité

kelhdril, Dooyoo
11 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Icewind Dale se veut être un cousin du jeu plus connu Baldur's Gate, l'interface n'a quasiment pas évolué, le moteur graphique est quasi identique à l'original, la résolution est figée en 640x480. Par contre, l'environnement sonore est lui une petite merveille d'ambiance musicale, qui vous plongera à merveille dans l'univers d'Icewind Dale.
  • Pros: Les graphismes, le scénario
  • Cons: Le manque d'innovation

GRAN JUEGO, PERO POCA JUGABILIDAD

  • Excerpt: Nos encontramos con un juego que usa el mismo motor gráfico que Baldur´s Gate, usando las reglas de rol de Dungeons&Dragons, y el resultado es... HISTORIA Pues bien, lo primero que debes hacer es crear un grupo de 6 guerreros, eligiendo al detalle cómo quieres que sean tus personajes (Sexo, raza, profesión, apariencia, habilidades....).
  • Pros: Buena historia, durabilidad, SONIDO
  • Cons: JUGABILIDAD
