It says something that, despite these technical issues, we found it very hard to tear ourselves away from Neverwinter Nights 2 long enough to actually write this review. Just like its acclaimed spiritual predecessors, the game is wholly engrossing and begs to be explored. Rare is a game with such meaningful and varied character development, and the plethora of options available will guarantee that many players will want to indulge in its experience from the point of view of several different types of characters. Neverwinter Nights 2 is one of the best RPGs we've played in a long time -- bugs and performance issues be damned.
The second is at Computer Games Romania with an overall score of 85/100:
Did I enjoy playing Neverwinter Nights 2? Yes I did, even though I'm not exactly a D&D fan but the story, characters and the choices I had at my disposal made me overlook the bad AI, frustrating party micromanagement, gamebreaking bugs or the Spartan inventory system. Many will ask if they should play NWN 2 considering that it's geared mainly towards D&D players. Yes, you should play it but you'll also have to leave some of your RPG preconceptions at the door if you want to truly enjoy the game. And as expected, the game ending leaves the door wide open for at least an expansion, so I have a feeling that in the future we'll spend quite some time in the Forgotten Realms.
And the third is at ActionTrip with an overall score of 84/100:
With all this on offer, Neverwinter Nights 2 will surely keep RPG fans busy for a long time. You won't regret buying the game, especially if you've played through the original as well as the expansion packs. On the other hand, Obsidian obviously hasn't made any real breakthroughs, which is a bummer, really, seeing as the original brought quite a lot of fresh ideas to the RPG scene.
