  1. Mask of the Betrayer delivers on all fronts: tactical battles, exceptional story, and great characters. It’s truly remarkable how far NWN 2 has come. It’s not perfect, but as far as I’m concerned the smooth execution and excellent new content in this expansion make this the best electronic D&D experience since "Baldur’s Gate II."
  2. You know in the pit of your soul that this is a power the likes of which you have never felt before. In time, you will find out what you have become - and, more importantly, what you will become.
  3. Regardless of these problems however, Mask of the Betrayer is a triumph which should be saluted by all RPG fans, since it proves once and for all that “old school” RPG principles – wonderful story, interesting characters, great dialogues – which seem to have been forgotten by newer “RPGs”, are still as valid as ever.

    This direct sequel to Neverwinter Nights 2 is everything I've wanted since Planescape: Torment. The comparison to Black Isle's masterpiece is entirely justified. Full Review »

    The best RPG since Planescape:Torment, Obsidian Entertainment finally live up to their Black Isle legacy. Simply one of the best RPG's ever made. The fact that it has a lower critic score than the travesty that is Dragon Age 2 is an insult to the obviously passionate people who developed this game. That passion died a long time ago at BioWare.

    Deep and engaging, Mask of the Betrayer is a role-player's delight.
