Customer Reviews:

  • Enjoyed It
    I enjoyed the game for its campaign and its features.
    The campaign provided for hours of enjoyment with a good storyline and good action. Unique companion personalities added to the campaign and they were overall very well written. Many side quests in the campaign for small, enjoyable breaks from the storyline. This campaign takes you to lvl 20, so you can fully develope your character before the game's end.
    There are many new and enjoyable classes that were added to the game, since NWN1 and some of the prestige classes require certain titles, obtainable through in game events(some optional) and I think that was a nice feature.
    Even after the campiagn the game provides for many different possibilities for different online worlds to play. These can be as enjoyable as the campaign and can connect you with other players online. This feature of NWN2 will be why it lasts and why you should get it....more info
  • Same-Same
    Neverwinter Nights 2 is basically the same game as the first one; although the interface is much less complex (which is a GOOD thing), and of course the graphics are a LOT better... But towards the end of the game, I was almost tired, wanting the story to just be over. It's sadly obvious that Bioware has been bought, and the new owners want a return on their investment... this isn't of the same engaging, ultra-high quality as prior Bioware game in the past IMO. :-(...more info
  • NWN II LE Review
    The game is decent. I have just completed the single player campaign. The plot, graphics, playability are all just fine. There are plenty of official patches that cleaned up all of the bugs. Even with a high speed cable modem it took a while to download all of these patches from Atari. It does have some flaws. There is nothing in my mind that really seperates it from NWN. I was hoping that they would take NWN to significantly higher lever. They raised the bar slightly. I think that the expectations for them to make the sequal were a little bit unreasonable. NWN was a super high quality game with little room for improvment. Soon I hope to start playing fan built custom modules. That is where it should become interesting. That is the best thing about the game. It offers virtually unlimited playability. There are so many people who make quality mods that you can always find a quality new campaign to play....more info
  • Great game--still a little buggy
    The game is great fun and I'm still learning it . The game is still a little buggy in places even after the latest updates,but not enough to say anything bad about this game. Hope everyone will enjoy this game as I do....more info
  • Never return to the "real" world again....
    This game is the best Dungeons and Dragons experince thus far. Short of playing the actual PnP game when I was a little kid, this game eclispe's all computer attempts before it. I tried every attempt at a computer D&D game and loved the entire Baldur's Gate series (Icewind Dale too!) and found the first Neverwinter Nights game a good engine, but some features left me disappointed (limited henchmen/party etc.). Disliked the giant chat rooms (Evercrack, etc) and ripoff's to D&D (necessary, cause the offcial ones usually sucked). The dry spell is over. The game is gorgeous (even tweaked down for a mediocre laptop), plays well, has great cutscenes and a good story thus far. I am having fun EARNING my items. gold and levels. I can see where this is going too, the fan based mods and expansion packs are going to be great. Also from what I can see there will be MAJOR campaign replayibility, mostly to compare good versus pragmatic (OK, evil) characters, but also between approaches as well. Sounds good too. Get this game now and say goodbye to your "real" life for awhile. ...more info
  • NWN2 review from Thieves-guild
    Neverwinter Nights 2 has an unparalleled graphics engine than any other D&D game out there. While it's not as in-your-face impressive as Bethesda's Oblivion, The graphics should still be given it's props as about 5 steps up from the original Neverwinter Nights and even the recently released, TitanQuest. Character creation is much more detailed with the utilization of a 3D graphics model instead of the 2D portraits from NWN. Weaponry detail and effects are steps above. Spell effects are awesome. Scenery is mind-blowing with moving water, swaying grass, fire, detailed statues, buildings, castles and dungeons. You will get lost in the sheer beauty of Forgotten Realms while exploring. But all this graphical goodness comes with a price. If you aren't running a top of the line video card, your game will lag and stutter to an almost unplayable, very frustrating point. This game is definitely NOT for the meek of computers.

    Game play: From dynamic dialogs with companions and NPCs to questing deep into mysterious crypts and dungeons. You will be engulfed by the storyline till the end. Companions will have you rolling with comical conversations to hateful bickering. Neverwinter Nights 2 uses an influence meter much like what Obsidian used in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2. Depending on what you say to your companions will determine how much they like you. You can be as good and nice or vial and evil as you want, but remember that everything has it's consequences and rewards. The role playing aspect is very defined, there are multiple ways around every situation based on feats, skills, and alignment. How will you live in the Realms? Situational events such as battles are dictated by several difficulty settings to make everything as hard or easy as you want. But know that this only changes the rules at which monsters, characters, and the Dungeon and Dragons rules apply. Fighting is based much like the original Neverwinter Nights. Semi-real time, set round situations. The rounds of attack are somewhat distinctive, but if you don't act quick enough you can and will miss your opportunity. Actions, attacks, and pretty much everything are based on the D&D rolling systems, dependent on your characters stats, skills, weapons, armor, etc will determine if they will make a high enough roll to take some damage or resist it completely. Or if you can bluff enough to make your opponent think you are telling the truth. The possibilities are only as far as the advancement and development of your character.

    Multiplayer: Whether it be co-oping on the official campaign or exploring custom made modules, you and your friends can play for hours, if not forever. Through use of the Toolset, you can create your own creative world, or a spin-off from other popular worlds of your choice. And if you lack the ability to create your own, or just want to see what other people's minds can come up with you can go online and download modules from NWN2 community and fan sites. So keep your eye open for new worlds to open up in the months to come. You can also export and import characters from modules and/or the official campaign, so if you got that killer rogue, spell-prodigy wizard, or walking tank you can play them in other games.

    But this game is not without it's problems. NWN2 has only been out since Oct 30 2006, and already has been patched several times. There are internal programming glitches that sometimes make this nearly awesome game frustrating sometimes. Some conversation and encounter scripting is flaky at best. Other times, if situations not done in specific orders or immediately will bug the game completely preventing almost any and all progression further. The developers give a minor tip to save often during your game. Take this with a grain of salt, as I would recommend saving your game in different slots most time, and save every time you choose to leave areas. Otherwise you might end up several hours into your game without saving and realize something you did has prevented you from going any further and you would have to reload that previous save.

    The printed computer required specs in order to play this game is a direst of circumstances list. If you want to experience what this game has to offer you need a top of the line gaming computer system. Honestly, I wouldn't play it with anything less than what the developers listed as recommended specs. Anything else you are just going to be frustrated and put the game on your shelf.

    Everything aside, this game had so much more potential than what was released as a final product, which is still being constantly patched for content bugs and glitches. Personally I think that this game should have undergone a few more months of beta testing and patches, instead of pushing production so it's out before the winter seasons. Otherwise, Neverwinter Nights 2 is a great game with outstanding graphics, good playable diversity, catching storyline and somewhat lacking ending, that leaves you to want an expansion to continue where the main game left off rather abruptly.

  • A Great Game
    I havent been able to put as much time into the game as I want but I have really had fun playing it so far. The graphics are awesome but the game play takes a little bit to get used too. If you like the first one you will love this one. Look forward to playing more on the server....more info
  • hmmmm what happened????
    I am a huge have of the first NWN..bu this was a disappointment. A few things right off the bar...the carera view sucked...it was easily fixed but I had to look on the web tto get it to work right. the game over was not bad but it seems they really messed up the online play. I tried playing on line a few times but ir was slow and clunky.

    also the machine requirements are astromonical....I have Obivion and I run it on high everything it looks great....this i needed to run on meduim to get anyhting that was responsive.. and it did not even hold a candle to oblivion as far as graphics were concerned

    as for the d&d rules /i play the pen and paper game weekly and this game is pretty true in that aspect which is always fun.

    The other issue is it seems the community that grew up around the NWN has not made the jump to NWN2...this is a big disappointment for me...some of the best work was not done by Atari but by the community

    All in all i was disappointed with the gaem and hope theres is a lot of fixes to see if they can fix it. ...more info
  • NeverWinter Nights 2 - Limited Edition
    This game is all that one could hope and wish for! Anyone who appreciated NWN 1, will find this game a delight and joy to play. It is so very easy to immerse ones self into the game and lose all concepts of time! IMHO, when a game is capable of accomplishing that, it is a 5+ star game and this game does it with ease! So, go and throw down those hard earned buck and never look back! Of course your significant other may not appreciate this game at all. Why, you will be so busy battling and saving lives that they may not get the attention they think they deserve, "OH WELL"! Of course if they really appreciate you, they will pull up a chair and help you do battle. It is always an advantage to have another set of eyes playing the NWN series. My son and I have been doing it for years and it! When you can send quality time side by side with your loved one and tighten that BOND, what more could one possibly ask for? This facet alone is priceless, enough said................

    PS: If you are able to find a "NWN 2 Limited Edition Version", grab it and run to the register! You get a couple of very valuable artifacts that are otherwise unattainable. Problem is, this Limited Editions are just that, very Limited and very Hard to find! I was lucky to find a copy, there only one at an EB games store on the day or release. Worth every penny of the additional $$$ over the regular version!

    PS: You may want to purchase the "Official Strategy Guide" when you make your purchase. EB Games was giving a 20% discount if bought together. Don't know if that was a one day deal or not, doesn't hurt to ask. Personally, I don't use it much, but after I complete an area, I like to review it to ensure I didn't miss anything important, prior to leaving that area.
