Reviews and Problems with Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer
Showing 1-10 of 10
Good expansion to a mediocre game
2 May 2013
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: I bought the game due to the low price and how enthralled I was with the original NWN. Unfortunately, I did not see anywhere that NWN2 main game was required. Hopefully this will save someone else the trouble.
Summary: I absolutly loved NWN2 and the series in general. Mask was a little disappointing though. I became confused with this shadow world vs. real- one and the constant need to feed derailed me from exploring the world. Overall, nice but lacked the freedom from the first.
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.
Summary: I am writing this review for my husband, as he is the player of this game. He told me to say that he has always liked (very much ) the rest of the NeverWinter Nights series. He has about everything from the start.
Summary: PROS: Number one pro would have to be the feeling of continuity. If you carry over a character from NNW 2, you keep all the titles (with pertaining plusses or minus') you earned. While, if you generate a character from scratch, you have none of these.
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.
Summary: First off, let me say I was really pulling for this game. Despite the bugs that the original had, I have a solidly entertaining run through, both times I played it from start to finish. I was really looking foward to picking up my old character and making a new run through the NWN universe.
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.
