Neverwinter Nights 2 review

The Dungeon Masters at Obsidian roll up an instant classic

The skilled role-playing gamesmiths at developer Obsidian have taken their spotless pedigree (Planetscape Torment, Fallout 2 and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II) and extended it even further in NWN2. Compelling and often hilarious dialogue choices actually have a great effect on both the loyalty of your traveling companions and the eventual outcome of the game (40 - 60 hours later).

The developers have clearly asserted that NWN2 - like D%26D itself - is a party game. So this time around you'll have direct control over four additional party members besides your own central character - a huge improvement over the original. We couldn't help but reminisce fondly on our traditional D%26D upbringings while running through the single player campaign with an actual group.
