I remember my disappointment when NWN 2 first came out. It was a buggy mess and first half of the campaign scared many players away from this title.
Now, after nearly 10 years of polishment form both Obsidian and especially fans, NWN 2 is pinnacle of CRPG experience. It offers everything to everyone who has at least some inclinations to play RPGs. Want a good story-driven experience? Play original campaign, Mask of the Betrayer, Mysteries of Westgate. Want a more free-roam experience? Storm of Zehir is for you. Want both? Grab some of the dozens high-quality fan-made modules from Neverwinter Nexus. You basically get dozens of games for the price of one.
Whichever campaign you play, whatever race and class you choose, you will have fun. Every character is unique, RPG system and character development is so good you will feel the urge to advance just-one-more-level before you go to sleep. Companion banter in OC, MotB and MoW is witty and funny. Fighter, rogue and caster classes are all equally fun to play, which is something of a miracle in DnD-based computer CRPGs.
I would like to point out one more thing and that is Mask of the Betrayer. MotB is the best RPG experience Obsidian ever made, hands down. Excellent story with truly epic moments can rival even BG2 and Planescape: Torment. The game would be worth its price even for MotB alone.
All in all, if you have never played NWN 2 before and want to give CRPGs a try, grab a copy of NWN2 Complete on GoG. You will get hundreds if not thousands of hours of very enjoyable gaming experience.… Full Review »

It's a fantasticFor $20 (on Steam anyway) you get Neverwinter Nights 2 and both expansion packs (Mask of the Betrayer, Storm of Zehir). It's a fantastic value. I sank 100 hours or so into the main campaign and the Betrayer expansion before feeling like I needed to step away from it for a while. If you enjoy single-player RPGs and/or the D&D 3.5 Edition rule set, this game is for you.
Even after a couple years of patches, some bugs remain in the main campaign. If you save often (in multiple slots) you shouldn't have any poblems with getting "stuck" due to bugs. 9/10 for the game itself, but -1 for bugs.… Full Review »

For example - you cannot saveDisappointing... :( Expected too much from this game probably. But it is too bugged for a final product. For example - you cannot save over the same Save file - or your save file will become corrupted! I mean 0 come on!.. The game itself is a little too complicated for newcomers - all the detailed D&D system will be a pain in the but for players who never played RPG's.… Full Review »
