Apple Games Features Neverwinter Nights 2
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games has conjured up a new feature article for the recently released Mac version of Neverwinter Nights 2. The feature offers an overview of what the game has to offer, comments from game designer Tony Evans, additional comments from Ed Greenwood on the history of the Forgotten Realms setting, a list of classes and races included in the game, and finally a list of cheat codes for those looking for an advantage.

“Neverwinter Night 2’s story is a classic tale of great evil threatening the lands and heroes rising up to conquer that evil,” explains game designer Tony Evans. You’ll need 50 hours or more to complete the game’s sprawling narrative, which includes many side quests and other activities. You’ll even find your character placed on trial at one point, accused of a horrific crime that he didn’t commit, and later you’ll take command of Crossroad Keep, a fortress serving as your home base for later quests.

During your journey, you recruit up to three non-player characters (NPCs) to help you. The presence of certain ones triggers specific side quests, and your interactions with them dictates their loyalty to you, a status level that makes a major difference when you find the odds against you in a battle. How you treat other characters you meet also nudges the story in certain directions, potentially turning you into a villain, rather than the hero.

“I like to play as an evil warlock,” confides Evans. “We added a lot of dastardly deeds and devious twists and turns for evil players in the story. I highly recommend playing the game through to the end as an evil character. In my opinion, it makes the game even more fun.”
