  • Summary: The first official expansion to Neverwinter Nights features a new 40-hour single player campaign as well as game features new to Neverwinter Nights, such as additional D&D skills, feats, classes, monsters, weapons and spells. In addition, the pack includes three new tile sets and other assets for use in the Aurora toolset that will enable amateur module designers to create completely different worlds. [BioWare] Expand

  1. The tilesets offer a little more variety than modifying lighting on older tilesets to accomplish the same visual effects and thank Mordenkainen they improved the system for setting creature waypoints.
  2. Possesses the same degree of replay value as the original game. Once gamers have gone through the entire new campaign, they can find a lot of new and interesting things to experiment with the next time around - a characteristic that should define any decent RPG.

    A great single-player adventure that also offers new tools for mod makers. Gamers that prefer non-melee classes better be up for a challenge though.
  4. If you're like me and enjoyed Neverwinter Nights then you'll enjoy Shadows of Undrentide. It's a fun romp through a dangerous, magical land.
  5. 77
    If you're a Neverwinter modder you'll probably want to get it just for the tilesets, creatures and new scripting wizards and NWN fans will find plenty here to keep them busy, but Shadows of Undrentide isn't a "must-have now" expansion pack for the average gamer.
  6. Ultimately, while the additions to the core game and Aurora toolset will offer more potential to module-makers, and the new classes do provide replayability options, we'll need a bit more oomph to take notice of the next expansion. [Sept 2003, p.96]
  7. Offers a professional, worthy campaign and is definitely a good buy for the price even if it isn't as satisfying a single-player RPG experience as Bioware's immortal "Baldur's Gate II" series.

    Quite good. Original campaign was better than SoU, I think. It added a lot of models, however, and the addition of the feats and PrCs is nice. Sadly I feel this expansion will be forgotten, but it was good nonetheless. Expand

    This expansion is the reason to buy Neverwinter Nights. An intriguing, tight little story dealing with one of the coolest bits of the Forgotten Realms, and an iconic NPC companion -- Deekin, the kobold bard. Short and sweet. Infinitely better than the original campaign for Neverwinter Nights, which isn't worth bothering with. Expand
