A bit buggy but playable and almost as fun as nwn1
21 January 2012
Summary: Reading all the reviews I held off getting nwn2 until the price came way down and it had as many patches as possible. This feedback is based upon my daughter finishing nwn2 and I'm about half way through. We love nwn1 and play it all the time. Nwn2 is a bit more linear in the story, but that has not been too bad. In nwn1 it felt like I was exploring a world AND solving problems, where in nwn2 it follows more of a script of what has to be done next to solve problems.
Summary: This game is simply a must play for any D&D fan. While the original campaign may not have been as well recieved as its predecessors, it none-the-less is the best D&D based RPG released. I recently replayed this game again a few years after it's debut and was pleased that the graphics still looked great and the action was just as fun. The two add-on's each give a uniquely different storylines and gameplay making the platinum addition well worth it.
Summary: As an enormous fan of the original Neverwinter Nights for PC and Dungeons and Dragons in general, I have been looking forward to getting my hands on NWN2 for quite some time. I have greatly enjoyed this game. The developer saw that they had a solid product in the original and simply expanded that formula in the sequel.
Summary: I bought this game a few years ago and then laid it aside without playing it. I picked it up again this time the platinum edition and just couldn't put it down. It took a while getting used to the controls and combat, so I played through the tutorial twice just to get the hang of things and then played through the game. I had no issues with downloading the game to my pc. I thought the graphics were superb and the story good. I would recommend this game to any rpg fan.
Summary: The original campaign is somewhat lackluster in story, though the combat makes up for that significantly. Mask of the Betrayer is a hail mary that puts eight on the board! The story is intrigue at the highest and the additional pc races, classes and feats etc. make an average dish a 5-star Roman feast. The online community is small by today's standards but is growing surely and the fans are very dedicated indeed.
Summary: Good: the gameplay feels like baldur's gate nice NPCs and well-written story (especially mask of betrayer) numerous options to choose from when creating a character Spell effects look cool Bad: bugs!!!
Summary: Its pretty good, but it says that it comes with modules on it and it didn't. Maybe it was just mine. The mask campaign ***maybe spoiler*** is kinda boring. Rather short unless you seek out every little side quest, and virtually impossible to play as a neutral character. In the end you choose good or sorta evil***end spoiler*** I haven't finished the storm campaign i'm a little bored with it.
