Icewind Dale 3 in 1 Boxset Video Games

Benjamin C. Gessel, Amazon
22 August 2013
  • Summary: Icewind Dale I is a tad buggy, esp. at the end, though there are certain areas of the game that are EXTREMELY beautiful, and quite imaginative. It is very wise to use bards, druids, etc. in your party, as well as plenty of fighters. The storyline is a bit weak though. Icewind Dale II has more of a "rough and adventurous, go kill some monsters" kind of quality to it. Both games have lots and lots of snowy, very cold areas, go figure.

Baldur's gate with a more combat lean

Matthew S. Hull, Amazon

  • Summary: This game uses the same engine as Baldur's gate I and II. The main differences being that you can create all of your own party instead of just one main character. The reason for four stars is that Baldur's gate is more engaging and has a better story.

Problems with installing and playing the games

Kenneth, Amazon
26 June 2012
  • Summary: The DVDs and CD arrived promptly and appeared to be in good condition. I installed the ICEWind Dale DVD and the game played well. Upon trying to install the Heart of Winter Expansion CD, it could not be read by my computer. I tried a few times but it did not recognize the CD. I installed the ICEWind Dale 2 DVD and my virus protection software detected a Trojan and automatically removed it. A scan of the DVD with my virus protection software did not reveal any problem.

Still so good

Thomas Helmka "Helmkat", Amazon

  • Summary: I played IWD some years ago and enjoyed it a great deal. Having given away the game to a friend, I decided to order the bundle of three disks. I loaded up the first disk and heart of winter and then began to play... It was like visiting an old friend. The story is engaging, the mechanics easy to master, plenty of strategy and you feel connected to the party you creat right away. The graphics are old school but still serviceable. I highly recommend.

Good for DnD fans

Krynin, Amazon
28 December 2010
  • Summary: I've always been a fan of Icewind Dale, but never had the expansion or the second one. This VERY reasonably priced box-set was perfect for me (and, incedentally, my friend, so I got one for him as a christmas gift). While it does not have as good a storyline as Baldurs Gate, the engine is much smoother, it feels more balanced, and the combat is much more fun.

First played in 2009!

Fast Eddie, Amazon

  • Summary: Decent game, very simalar to Baldurs Gate 2. Less items and the overall gameworld is smaller. It's fun. I couldn't get Icewind Dale 1 to play, oh well. Got Icewind Daleto 2 play.

Frosty

Bryan, Amazon
5 November 2003
  • Summary: It's very similar to the other Baldur's Gate games, but, it doesn't have the intricate plots like the second game. It's extremely hard and easy to get lost, so, don't think you'll show up with a tenth level Paladin and just slaughter everything in sight. They did their homework applying the old school monster manual role playing applications to this one. Get a bigger sword.

Be warned with Windows 7

David A. Wrightsman "energydude", Amazon
5 November 2003
  • Summary: I've always been a big fan of Infinity Engine games from Bioware and Black Isle. I decided to take a trip to the past and pick up these games. I don't think I have tried to load up such old software on a new machine. So be advised - if you are running Windows 7 then you'll need to a do a little tweaking to get them to run consistently. So far, they seem moderaltly stable using compability setting of Windows XP w/service pack 2.
