GameZone has kicked up their own preview of Obsidian's Neverwinter Nights 2 after seeing the game firsthand at Atari's pre-E3 press event. Here's a taste:
The game works off the D&D 3.5 ruleset and features the core races and sub-races, plus core classes and a new class, the warlock. The game also features an-easy-to-access player interface, with pop-ups that provide quick access to spells. Driving the game is a matter of keyboard or point and click. Alignments do play a big role in the game and the whole skills and feats packages have been configured for players new to the game and genre to jump in and play without a lot of dumbfounded looks or head scratching.
