Summary: First, the most annoying thing - your lovely AI friends get stuck all over the place. You are in a cave, and the developers have decided to place a bunch of glowing mushrooms in the middle of a tunnel... which said mushrooms defeat your whole party, as they get stuck there. You must now double back to get them, or control them yourself to try to get them unstuck. I have had the game "teleport" me back to a certain place where I walked too far from my allies.
Summary: "Mask of the Betrayer" is great, good story which I was actually amused with.. The next version after that is crap, it got no story whatsoever. Hopefully neverwinter 3 will actually have a compelling story. Don't preorder it yet, wait for the reviews.
Summary: This was a very fun game overall. It has a great story, it was cheap to buy, you have a lot of great character customization, and as far as these semi-strategy type RPGs go it has decent gameplay. Unfortunately, it was clearly very rushed in production. The graphics are rather terrible, but it manages to run very poorly with high system requirements at the same time due to a near absence of any optimization. It is also -riddled- with bugs.
Summary: I enjoyed playing through all of the origanl nwn2 and its expansions. The games are fun and will provide you with many hours of gameplay. Thats the good news. The technical issues with these games however are many which is probably more to do with a rushed release than bad games themselves.
Summary: If you're expecting an action rpg along the lines of Knights of the Old Republic, Dragon Age or Elder Scrolls, you will be disappointed. Instead of a long review I'm going to point out some features. The cons: -Combat takes place in rounds. Although control of your character is real time, each character can only attack once per round so combat feels extremely slow, almost like you are playing old final fantasy tactics or something.
Summary: I wish i could have liked this game i really wanted too, but several problems made it just another D&D based rpg game. the story is pretty generic and boring.You awake after a night of rest to find your village under attack where you find eventually find out you are the "chosen one" to yield some magic sword and defeat the evil bad guy.
Capable of great things, but needs a bit more work

Summary: First of all, I'm a huge fan of the whole Forgotten Realms series. I loved the Baldur's Gate series and I really enjoyed the original NWN. Therefore, I was eager to play this game and I had high hopes that it would be as good as its predecessors. Overall, I enjoyed this game, but there are some major flaws that detracted from its potential. First, the good: -- I thought that the graphics were quite nice.
