Icewind Dale II Preview @ Icebound

The guys at Icebound have written up a preview of Icewind Dale II. Here's a bit of what they had to say about it:

    Overall, IWD2 is an immensely enjoyable experience. I have played through the preview 3-4 times and I still enjoy it. The game has a large replay factor, due to the implementation of skills, and the Heart of Fury mode, which adds new items, and makes the baddies much more challenging. If you're looking for a single or multiplayer role-playing game with an amazing story, you will definitely want to pick up Icewind Dale II.
