Neverwinter Nights 2 Review

Game Informer has conjured up a short review of Neverwinter Nights 2, giving the newly released RPG sequel an overall score of 8/10.
The included campaign blows the first game's story out of the water with a gripping tale of an evil cult that seeks Neverwinter's destruction along the path to domination of all of Faerun. Players even have a decent amount of input, through the choices they make, over how the plot unfolds. However, the gameplay has a tendency to feel disturbingly similar to the original's clunky framework. The interface is noticeably improved, but the odd way the engine assigns attacks of opportunity, as well as the horrid pathfinding and AI for both allies and enemies, are entirely unchanged. Under the hood, NWN 2 is almost identical to the original. While that's not the worst thing in the world, asking for a little evolution in gameplay for a five-years-in-the-making sequel isn't exactly unreasonable.
