Who says there aren't enough RPG's on the Mac? Thanks to MacPlay, another RPG in the form of Icewind Dale has made it to the Mac. Today Michael Phillips reviews this splendid game.

Here's a snippet from the review:

Icewind Dale takes place in the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons world known as the Forgotten Realms. Icewind Dale itself is a territory located in the northernmost part of the Forgotten Realms, near the ever-treacherous Spine of the World Mountains. The adventure begins in the small fishing village of Easthaven. Winter has been unusually cruel this year, supply caravans are scarce and matters only look to get worse. Furthermore, the neighboring town of Kuldahar has been undergoing strange attacks, residents disappearing in the dead of night, leaving only the darkness behind to bear silent witness to their grim fate. Evil is certainly afoot, something must be done. Enter Hrothgar, self-appointed protector of Easthaven and retired adventurer. While having a mug of ale in the local tavern, Hrothgar notices a band of weather worn travelers warming by a roaring fire, by the look of their gear, he can tell they’ve seen their fair share of dastardly foes. Hrothgar has been called by the Archdruid Arundal to assist in protecting his embattled home. Thus, Hrothgar decides to enlist the aid of these adventurers for the investigation of the tumult at Kuldahar. Now, the stage is set for the player to begin their journey.
