Never Winter Nights 2 - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I think its an awesome game. Got a 4 Fighter/ 1 Bard / 3 Red Dragon Deciple and it is awesome. It doesn't play as well as I would like it to...but I can deal. It does look amazing though. I have the shadows off but the spell animations are simply jawdropping (especially when your mage kills half your group with them....)

However, it does need some work When you get it, you need to spend a while optimising it to play on your machine and after that it doesn't run THE BEST either. I have it running ~40FPS mostly (except in Neverwinter where it runs 20-30) but it sometimes gets jerky when lots of stuff is happening. Also, the AI is a bit screwy but people have found that the AI is all scripted and people have already edited it. So give the game a month and it will be amasing!

I hate it.

My wife and I bought copies, as we were big NWN fans - played all the time with some of our friends.

NWN2 is a huge dissapointment. Even on my machine, I have to run it at 1024x768 with low-medium settings, and then I'm lucky to hit 25fps. There are almost countless issues with the game, but let me highlight a few:

1 - The aforementioned graphics issues.
2 - Multiplayer is horrible... your party can't split up between zones, and each time a player enters in coversation with *any* NPC, all players freeze. So non-speaking players are just stuck, can't check inventory, view character sheet - nothing.
3 - Targeting is difficult, at best. When the screen is chopping along at 10fps, and you're trying to click *exactly* on the monster you're trying to fight, you'll miss 9/10 times and end up instead issuing a move command and walking right into the middle of the fight (great for casters...)
4 - AI is incredibly dumb. Watch your AI controlled party members AOE without any rhyme or reason, and watch your tanks sit back and watch while casters are cut down.
5 - Graphics are nowhere near as good as they could be, compared to other games out right now - especially considering how badly it runs.

I could go on, but I think you get the point. There are some people who love this game, and that's great for them - but personally, I'd stay far, far away. If you do buy it, just be prepared to argue for a refund on open software

I saw my friend playing it and it looked like crap. The graphics were bad, and ran slowly at that. The music was repetitive and annoying. Also the quests were menial and boring.

NWN2 = :turd: IMO

Thanks for the feedback. I think I am going to hold off on this until I find a way to try it out first.

I love it. Battled my way through the tech forums and graphics issues. I just treat it as part of the games challenges LOL.

Red Dragon Fighter FTW!



The one sorc' level was to meet the req, so ill end up with a 10/9/1 Dragon/Fighter/Sorc build. Does anyone know if the half dragon feat gives you wings again?

I cant wait for the 1.03 patch. Playing this game without true anti-aliasing is killing me.
