4.0 out of 5 stars Your Mileage May Vary, August 24, 2008
This review is from: Neverwinter Nights 2 Gold - PC (DVD-ROM)
OS: Vista Ultimate 64
Processor: 3Ghz Intel (forgot the exact name)
Graphics: nVidia 7950 GT
Sound: Creative Labs Xtreme Gamer Pro
Ram: 4 Gigs

This game runs fine on my system and it's on Vista 64.
You can set the graphics setting from low to high.
Check out the NWN 2 forums ([...]).

Some people have horrible time getting this game to run. Others run this fine.

The in game AI is not too good, but Tony K's AI ([...]) is awesome. Monsters and companions fight smarter and know when to switch from range to melee weapons. You can even set your companions to disarm traps, unlock doors, and pick up nearby loot for you (assuming they have the skills to do those things).

The player content for this game is small compared to NWN1, but it's growing. The player content and the community makes this game 4 stars.

The Original Campaign (OC) is a light fantasy. You grew up in a small farm now you must save the world. Some of the NPCs are very rememberable, while others you may chose not to include in your party unless you must.

The sequel Mask of the Betrayer is a much darker fantasy with the story surrounding your survival. The NPCs are more fleshed out and people seem to like this dark story more. Very few companions to join your party compared to the OC.

For me this series has tons of fun factor because you can customize your character, the gear, the monsters, and the game itself (within limits). The toolset lets you create your own world, but it's a heavy learning curve. The player community has put quite a bit of their material at the nwnvault.com and it's slowly growing.

If you like AD&D (this uses the 3.5 rules) you should checkout this game. The player community gives this game tons of replay value. I agree with other reviewers that this game should have been given more time before released.
