Another Night In Neverwinter
7:10 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Applelinks has kicked off its new Reviews Revisited feature with a look back at Neverwinter Nights. The popular role playing game is still going strong years after its initial release, having spawned two expansions, several premium modules, and a dragon's horde of fan made content. Applelinks gave NWN a heroic score of 5 out of 5.

Neverwinter Nights begins as all such games do; with the creation of your character. There's plenty from which to choose here, so much so that newcomers to the genre may feel a little overwhelmed, although seasoned pros will be happy: gender, race (seven options), class (eleven options), abilities, etc. Have no idea what an uncanny dodge is? Neither did I, and I didn't want to learn, so not a Barbarian, me. There's no shortage of Neverwinter Nights fan sites that offer tips on creating your character, so go to them if you're felling inundated. I found GameBanshee to be quite helpful, but there are others.

Your character created, you start the adventure, and you'll be starting it for quite a while. You think you're in the introduction, but that becomes the entire first part of the story; you end up about a quarter of the way through the game before you even leave town. Did I mention this game is long? Bioware claims 60 hours of gameplay, and that's if you play straight through without, you know, exploring and saving and dying and restoring. I probably took 60 hours just to get through the first part, but they were 60 solid gaming hours. The type of gaming hours that make you want to thump your chest and shout "I'm 15 again!" while seated at the dinner table.
