Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've played a lot of computer based role playing games and I think Neverwinter Nights is the best. I've played it for over a year now.

For one thing, the Platinum package offers an incredible amount of content that used to cost $100 in a very affordable package. Second, the game is based on Dungeons and Dragons rules, which have been tested and refined for decades. It takes a while to grasp the richness of the possibilities, but it's worth it. Third, some people complain about the graphics but I think they look great. I never get tired of pausing a battle and zooming the camera around in circles and in for a closeup. Fourth, the interface is so simple it's almost a work of art. You right click on any particular object and a menu of things you can do with it comes up.

Fifth, with NWN comes a toolset that lets you build your own adventures. The ones provided with NWN Platinum are pretty good -- with Shadows of Undrentide and Hordes of the Underdark being far better than the original campaign. So you can download, for free, literally hundreds of additional games that fans have spent hundreds or thousands of hours creating. And many of these are even better than the adventures that come with NWN Platinum. People have also built additional scenery, monsters, environments, and much more. So you learn one set of rules and you're set for dozens of adventures - some short and intense, some huge and sprawling (with up to 60-100 hours of playing time, so they say). I feel like I'm totally set to be entertained for the next 6-12 months, probably more if people keep building great adventures and putting them online. (See nwvault.ign.com for a glimpse of what's out there. And did I mention it's all free?

5.0 out of 5 stars Pick this up....then give up your free time! September 27, 2004
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Platinum
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
In case you haven't heard of Neverwinter Nights yet (and in case you're wondering, we landed on the moon too.) and are in the dark about this incredible series, here's your chance to redeem yourself! In any case, this 'platinum' pack includes the original Neverwinter nights and both expansion packs, Hordes of the Underdark and (though the less exciting, but still fun) Shadows of Undrentide. What you should know is that this is the 'it' game concerning playability, multiplayer fun, as well as expandability with the excellent tool sets included to craft your own D&D adventure. It is an RPG set in the Forgotten Realms world (but has been modded to all sorts of worlds-you can even find an upcoming Dragonlance mod soon to be released), and I would stand by it to say (along with the Baldur's gate series as well as the fairly new Knights of the Old Republic...All made by Bioware...Hmmmm pattern here?) it is one of the best games you will play in a very long time (Until a month from now when the next 'big' thing comes and levels all expectations...suffice to say that the way technology is growing so fast, it doesn't give us poor gamers a lot of time to appreciate those great games that come out!). With tremendous graphics that still hold up remarkably well (its not THAT old), stellar gameplay and 100's of hours worth of pure entertainment, quit reading this review and wasting your time! Play the game NOW!(and plan on dodging those pesky necessities 'showering' and 'eating'!)

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best January 12, 2005
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Platinum
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been playing computer role-playing games since Wizardry came out for the Apple II. (For those of you too young to remember, that was when a machine with 48K of RAM was considered super-fast.) Neverwinter Nights is, IMHO, one of the best ever in the genre. It combines ease of play and an interesting story effortlessly. Better yet, one doesn't have to be The Amazing Kreskin to figure out what you are supposed to do next. Too many other games substitute cryptic puzzles for good game play. Neverwinter Nights does it right.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Game I've Played In My 12 Year Lifetime November 25, 2005
A Kid's Review
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Platinum
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I could tell you about the amazing graphics, gameplay, sound, and fun in replaying, but I think that other reviews have done that already. I'll just talk about two things:

Custom content and modules.

Some of you may feel like custom content is mainly bug-filled hacks that may or may not harm your computer, but NWN Platinum includes an amazing toolset that alows for compilation of modules that can be as complex-or more complex-than the original games. There is an amazing amount of custom content, and I've already downloaded at least one gigabyte of custom content, and 0 bytes of it have harmed my computer, with only 50 megabytes of it not working as intended. All of it can be modified as necessary by the toolset or player-created tools.

Some of the best uses for this are, of course, player modules, but are also hundreds of persistent worlds out there that allow for 24-hour multiplayer gaming. Most of those require nothing to log on to them, allowing you to just click and play.

All that these things mean is that you can play for a virtually infinite amount of time, with each minute of it theoretically with different people and using different content and themes.

If read this far, you've been reading to long. Buy this game!

Neverwinter Nights picks up where Baldur's Gate 2 left off with the engine of the game. It's much more fluid to control your character. While there's more story and character development here than in the DA series, it still pales in comparison to the orignial BG series. You'll find the NPC personalities to be rather dry, and the quests that go with them a little too straight forward. Most of the items you need to find to complete them aren't too far off the beaten path. The game is long and entertaining... if you like long dungeon crawls, you'll certainly get your money's worth out of it. A small tip: Rogue is very fun, but challenging. Paladin is much easier as you can cut through the battles.

Great game. Freezes up sometimes on Windows 7. Very challenging with only one henchman at a time instead of five like in Baldur's Gate.
