RPGWatch's review concludes with a 4/5:
Mysteries of Westgate is priced like a little module but performs like a full expansion - once again Ossian Studios has delivered in a big way for the Neverwinter Nights franchise! From the engaging story to the well thought out characters and side quests to the challenging combat, I was sorry when I knew I was getting to the end. There are clear boundaries to the amount of content, but that never makes the game feel small. There is plenty to do throughout and the developers did a great job at blurring the distinction between main quests and side quests by wrapping optional content in the vested interests of members of your party. It is a small thing, but just another way Ossian showed once again that they are very skilled at delivering a solid gaming experience for role-playing fans.
While the review at Sorcerer's Place goes with an equal 8/10:
Despite these criticisms, Mysteries of Westgate is still a joy to play. In a way, it makes its own contribution to the Neverwinter Nights 2 experience. Sort of like . while the original campaign and Mask of the Betrayer are going on, there's this great intrigue and drama unfolding in this part of the world. I earnestly recommend playing it at least once.
