Neverwinter Nights 2 Review

The folks at IGN PC have published their own review of Neverwinter Nights 2, giving the newly released RPG sequel an overall score of 8.5/10.
Anyone looking for a lengthy, complex, and engaging single player role playing experience should look no further than Neverwinter Nights 2. Thanks to the inclusion of fully controllable characters, there's plenty of enjoyable tactical combat to be conducted in the many dungeons the game runs you through. On top of that, there's an interesting storyline buffered by hours of fully voiced dialogue, an excellent soundtrack, good writing, and strong characters. The ability to play through the official campaign with others online in addition to the toolset that can be used to create and play your own adventures gives Neverwinter Nights 2 a bottomless replay value. It's not without faults. Inventory management will eat up large chunks of your play experience, the game is a massive system hog for minimal visual benefit, and you will run into noticeable bugs. You'll also find maps are limited in terms of their explorable area and aspects of tactical combat are occasionally undermined by the frailty of many enemies. Despite Neverwinter Nights 2's tendency to occasionally frustrate you, it remains an enjoyable, worthwhile, and lasting experience.
