Neverwinter Nights 2 Reviewed

Macworld UK has posted a new review of Neverwinter Nights 2. The RPG once again returns players to the Forgotten Realms setting using the Dungeons & Dragons rule set. Macworld gave the game a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:

The graphics are more varied and detailed than the murky textures of the earlier game, creating an impressive and realistic 3D world for your adventures (though you’ll need a fairly powerful Mac, with a 2GHz Intel processor to run the game properly). The storyline is more complex too, allowing your character to progress from simple country bumpkin to legendary hero. The game begins in the small village of West Harbour, which is suddenly attacked by a band of orcs. The orcs are searching for the broken shards of an ancient magical sword, and it falls to you to recover the lost parts of the sword and generally save the world. As you progress through the game you’ll develop greater powers and skills, and graduate from bashing orcs to taking on dragons and some really impressive large-scale battles against the invading armies of evil.

However, it’s not just straightforward good-versus-evil stuff. As you encounter new characters and events within the game you will always have a choice between good and evil. Your choices affect the way that the game unfolds, altering events and influencing the other characters in the game. You also attract a band of followers along the way, and you can choose up to three additional ‘henchmen’ characters to fight at your side – but only if they approve of the way you behave and consider you a worthy leader.
