Neverwinter Nights 2 Reviews

Four more Neverwinter Nights 2 reviews have surfaced on the web, most of which give the RPG sequel a favorable score. The first is at G4 with an overall score of 4/5:
Some RPGs can captivate wide audiences, games like Knights of the Old Republic and Oblivion, whose gameplay is intuitive enough and storylines involving enough that typical gamers will have a good '╦ťol time. This game, unfortunately, tries too hard to play true to its D&D roots to be able to offer much appeal to casual gamers. It's not that dice are hard to figure out; most gamers will just find them boring and lame. So, if you know who Drizzt Do'Urden is and have a bag of d6's somewhere within reach this is absolutely your game.

The second is at Thieves-Guild.net with no overall score:
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.

The third is at Just Adventure with an overall score of "A-":
If you are the type of game player who likes that story and gets bored of all the hack and slash, this game will give you plenty of opportunity to use diplomacy, intimidate, intelligence, bluff, and charm to avoid many fights. The results may not be as good as those you get by just cutting a swath in the land and killing everything but the designers should be applauded for having solutions other than fighting to many problems. Non violent solutions to problems may not be glamorous or heroic on first glance but in many cases they are far the superior solution to most problems.

And the fourth is at The Sydney Morning Herald with an overall score of 4/5:
Role-playing addicts won't be disappointed by the scope of this fantasy romp but a certain level of perseverance is required if you are unfamiliar with the intricacies of D&D.
