Good but not great: too combat oriented, Baldur's Gate is better

Charles P. Frederick, Amazon
15 August 2008
  • Summary: I have played through the Diamond version of this game, including Undrentide and Hordes of the Underdark. I can't say much for the multiplayer aspect of it, since my friends aren't really d&d people, but I can speak for the single player aspect. This is one of those games like starcraft, WoW, etc. that is fun mostly for the endlessly competitive tactical combat aspect. In NWN, combat is all about math, especially for fighters.

  • Summary: Great game. I bought this game so I could get on the internet and play online. 3-n-1 a good price for three fun games.

Fun but annoying....

  • Summary: One of the reasons Dungoens&Dragons has a very hard time going from Pen and Paper to video game is becuase of the interactivity factor. Not to say the RPGs based on D&D rules aren't fun to play...I spent a good portion of my 22nd year of life playing and replaying Baldur's Gate. But now that NWN has come out, I think we might have peaked. The game looks great, its level of interaction is very enriching, and for the most part its fun to play.

Typical RPG problems, disappointing toolset.

A. Gamer, Amazon
12 January 2005
  • Summary: While the game itself is fairly entertaining, it still has those typical design flaws programmers just can't seem to see. Inspite of being told to stay put, characters with you magicly show up next to you as you pass through some doorways, often right into a scene best handled alone. More often, very imaginative strategies will gather fewer experience than rushing blindly into battle.

Overrated

Chris Maire, Amazon
16 August 2004
  • Summary: A lot of people I know have recommended this game to me, because I love computer games and play tons of other RPGs, but I have to say I was really dissapointed. I only played until I was level 13 or so, but I found the game slow and uninteresting the whole way through. First off, I'm not really a fan of the D&D rules or whatever...for some reason none of the RPGs I've played with them have really caught my interest (except Knights of the Old Republic).

Gets a little tedious - not for children

Anthony, Amazon
19 July 2004
  • Summary: Never have I played such a visually stunning and impressively massive game. It is just enormous. There are so many places to go and people to talk to it's incredible. That said this game lacked a little something. As much as it was fun to complete quests and roam the picturesque landscape it really got repetitive after a while. All the characters stood pretty stationary and in some areas the quest line could be very easily broken if you weren't careful.

Not as good as Baldur's Gate

JSD "j", Amazon
13 February 2004
  • Summary: I got this game thinking it was another, newer, better version of Bauldur's Gate, it ain't. It just doesn't have the interactivity that Baldur's Gate, not as many side quests, and just not as much fun. I like it, but prefer the Baldur's Gate style combat then the Diablo style. Plus I like being able to control the ENTIRE party, not just one character. I guess its made more for online play, but I'm just not into that.

It's a Niche Game, Not Everyone Will Enjoy It Like I Did

Chris, Amazon
13 February 2004
  • Summary: If I could think of a way to best describe Neverwinter Nights, it would be Diablo meets Baldur's Gate. The game is made by the same people that designed Baldur's Gate but it's more of a mainstream "hack and slash" adventure than an epic RPG. Don't get me wrong, the in-game story is great but it just doesn't feel like a classic RPG. One reason for this might be because of the easy-to-use Aurora Toolset.
