The game is still good for an older game and the price was right!

Summary: The game seems pretty good. Not quite as good as the first game as far as controls and camera angles but its playable. The story is pretty good so far. I'm sure I will continue to enjoy it all the way through. I haven't fooled around with any of the new races or classes yet. My first playthrough I went with a human monk. There are, however, lots of different options to choose from and I will likely revisit them next time.
Great graphics and plot. Resource hog, Toolset ganked

Summary: While taking a bit of time to adjust from the earlier NWN, most things I didn't like to start with later became improvements. I.e. the way shops were handeled etc. I love the storyline, and the ability to select your party, take control of them, and the cut scenes. I don't like you can't have party members in different zones, during multiplay. The game also uses an insane amount of resources.
Summary: It is a fantastic game. Good storyline, good gameplay, excellent display of D&D 3.5 rules and live-time application. The companion system is great, and the details you can add to your character are phenomenal. This game is pretty much the dice-rolling version of Dragon Age: Origins. Overall, I give it a 9 of 10 rating.
Summary: Played it through, and while I enjoyed the thrill of battle and the 'good book' effect (not wanting to stop playing) the ending was like someone tore out the last page of the book...ugh! I mean what is so good about deveolping your character into a powerful hero and even achieving Lordship status, with own castle and grounds and opportuntiy to be one of the highest esteemed knights - Neverwinter Nine, only to have the rug pulled out from under you in the end?!?
Summary: Im a huge fan of the NWN series and i own the first game plus the expansions. Co op is the best part of the NWN series and its the leading factor in my purchase of this game. System requirements are pretty high. I run the game on two systems, both core 2's and both running Nvidia 9800gt's. Both systems are running vista with my main system being 64 bit. Both systems use Creative sound cards and EAX support is added by installing Creative Alchemy and adding the games.
Summary: I have played the original Neverwinter Nights and its expansions for years. I've played D&D since its first inception in April of 1974. I love the game and what it represents, period. So when they announced they were doing Neverwinter Nights 2, I wanted to give it a try as well. The graphics in NWN2 Gold are better than the graphics in NWN1, but not much, really. They aren't a drastic improvement.
Summary: By the time I picked up NWN2, I already knew some general points about the game -- it was akin to NWN1, featured a stronger storyline, and had an updated interface. Delving into the package (installation was a breeze), I booted the game up and was ready to go. After a solid week of playing this title, I feel I'm able to give a tentative summary of what worked and what didn't work so well with me.
