"Not Yet Complete Sadly"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I was so looking forward to NWN2 – I loved the Baldur’s Gate & NWN series from Bioware; and to a lesser extent the Icewind Dale games. The pre-release hype implied this would be NWN with radically improved graphics, especially scenery, with a more BG feel to the game and interface and everyone expected such. Instead Obsidian seems to have scrapped the entire engine & toolset and rebuilt from scratch. However they recycled many voice scripts & background music from the original! So you get a new game engine that is basically similar to NWN on the surface, but which has no new features of any huge merit and a limited quality rendering for your character customisation and only limited new original sounds.

NWN2 also exhibits similar bugs to what NWN had, in fact on first release it had more originally but by the 5th Patch (1.03.840) it has reached a more acceptable level. Probably released too soon it is yet to be seen whether Obsidian (& Atari) have a genuine commitment to support the game long-term as considerable patching will still be required.

Graphically the game is visually impressive at the high level, but the poor customisation capability for characters, limited variety of interior terrain, poor spell effect graphics, and issues with frame rates undermine this. Obsidian may not offer any real support for PWs; and only limited MP support! As a NWN fan I am disappointed – apart from the overall first impression of the graphics it offers little over the original.

I purchased the LE primarily to get the extra Feat & Store Items in game, although the artwork book is also nice (but features spoilers). It is better than the UK version of the LE. You will need 6.5GB to install, and 7GB free space to play & patch).

Description

  • A powerful new feat called Blessed of Waukeen, which will generate +1 bonus to all saving throws, two special items, access to a unique weapon and a magical golden aura which lights above your character
  • Cloth map showing in-game locations
  • Book of art, depicting characters and scenes from the game
  • Two silver antique rings: Good & Evil
Bards sing tales of heroes from ages past, but never have the Forgotten Realms so desperately needed a champion. Years have passed since the war between Luskan and Neverwinter, almost enough time for the wounds of war to heal. But the brief peace the Realms have known may be at an end. Tension growing between the mighty city-states means the Sword Coast again teeters on the edge of open war. Unnoticed, a greater danger stalks the City of Skilled Hands. Unbeknownst to the denizens of the North, deep in the Mere of Dead Men, dark forces from across the Realms have been rallied under the banner of a legendary evil. If left unchallenged, all of the North is doomed to fall under its power.

Even in this darkest hour, hope remains. A mysterious relic is borne to Neverwinter in the hands of a lone hero so that its secrets may be unlocked - secrets that carry the fate of all the North. So begins an epic tale of shattered alliances, noble acts and dark deeds to be told across the Realms for generations to come.
