Good expansion to a mediocre 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.
Summary: Never winter did such a great job with their design and control of the game until they decided to get fancy, if you can call it that. The new game is a big hassle to play, the cures gets in the way and you spend a large portion of your time dealing with keeping your energy up.
high degree of difficulty and frustration outweigh depth, fun

Summary: The "spirit-eater" aspect to this game makes it ridiculously, rigidly difficult to do anything, get anywhere, without backing yourself into a dire situation you can't escape from, much less function in. Fortunately, online I found a cheat code to turn it off, and then the game became enjoyable.
Excerpt: Mask of the Betrayer feels more completed and finished than its predecessor which felt rushed, and has the intriguing setting of Rashemen. Spirits, Hags and Red Wizards are abound. There's load of new content too: the plane touched Genasi. There are four different types, air, fire, earth and water.
Pros: Shinier, prettier graphics, new features&settings, replay and roleplay experience
Cons: the camera is still shoddy, spirit eater mechanism can detract from gameplay& some glitches
Excerpt: Following on from NWN2, this game has better qualities and even more actions to choose from, be surprised what you can do. You start from the end of NWN2 and immediatley things are different!!! Look out and choose a strong character even in easy mode its difficult so be an experienced player.
