Summary: Good fun---recommended for anyone who has enjoyed playing RPGs like the Baldurs Gate series installments. I bought this and the second expansion to specifically play the Baldurs Gate Reloaded game.
Summary: I tried EVERYTHING in my power to enjoy Neverwinter Nights 2, I bought both expansions, I threw myself into it both online and single player, tried my hardest to enjoy the INCREDIBLY immersive story, and interesting fleshed out characters... To no avail, the gameplay is simply annoying, and the A.I. is terrible, pathfinding is a joke for a game this new and the expansion fixes none of that.
Summary: Betrayal is at the apex of fantasy RPG design. It is there with a sub-optimal engine. The story and plot are great. The scale and scope of the adventure are huge, and far beyond the trite offerings of DA2, Witcher 2 or Skyrim. The character design and inventory are amazing and endless fun to explore. All of the design fundamentals are here. The game's main weakness is in the visual quality of the cut scenes, which are dreadful and tend to break immersion.
Summary: This is a great pickup of the original campaign. However, in the epic level ranges I found myself constantly micro managing buffs simply to keep my head afloat. After a while it simply becomes a tedious process. The story, however, was pretty fantastic for this type of game. It's worth a playthru, though I do not know that it has a lot of RE-playability.
