anyone play nwn2?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to buy neverwinternights 2 plat after enjoying the first game for a good 2-4 years. However..since it's not developed by bioware..I got my doubts ;] I've seen some videos, combat doesn't seem as...sane as the first game. Do characters still have blocking animations? Parries? I see people just standing and wacking. Spells look meh? I can max out the game..so how are the visuals? Hows multi? I know nwn's online community is still huge, what about nwn2? thanks in advance

I bought the game couple months ago, and finished a while ago the official campaign. It was good fun, Im not the usual baldurs gate kind of guy, but that was nice, I just had to use "pause" a lot of times through battles, especially with the casters, but after u get the hang of it its pretty cool.

you missed out on probably the best rpg since baldurs gate. The story, the characters you meet, whether friend or foe are developed nicely, all of them are very believeable and have alot of back story. The plot has lots of twists and turns and will keep you guessing.

The combat is 3.5 edition, so expect that going in.

The only legit complaint about the game is the buggy launch, but the game has been entirely fixed.

Is this game a lot like Baldurs Gate? I loved all of the Baldurs gate games I have played.

persistant worlds are still going strong, they do have animations for dodges and such.

Though in DnD there is no such thing as a block, its a miss.
