Neverwinter Nights 2 Review

The folks at RPG Watch have posted a review of Neverwinter Nights 2, in which three different editors sound off about the game and hand it an overall score of 3/5. Some things they didn't like:
The interface is clunky and cumbersome. The mini-map is useless and actually annoying. Targeting is a royal pain and characters frequently get boxed in or stuck. I find the casting menu to be awkward and I miss the simplicity of the original. Inventory management is difficult and things tend to get lost quite easily. Movement can be confusing and I lost track of the number of times I ended up running in the wrong direction trying to click on a place on the map.

The list could go on and on, yet it's really not a '˜bad' game, just one that needed more time and a lot more playtesting by gamers. There's so much potential here and I'm very hopeful that the modding community will do wonders with it. I'll certainly buy any expansions and I expect to be playing online mods with friends for many years, but just as in the original, the OC is a disappointment.
