Icewind Dale II Preview @ Games Domain

Games Domain joins the fray by posting their preview of Icewind Dale II. A snippet below:

    Black Isle promises roughly the same amount of gameplay hours as IWD plus its expansion pack, which means players won't get bitten by that criminally short Heart of Winter problem. The storyline is epic and promises to pit the player characters against everything from goblins, giants, and even Drow and their lair in the fabled Underdark. We've played a few hours into the campaign for preview purposes and suffice it to say what's old isn't new again, but it is as fun and familiar as before.
