  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. The main fault of this title is that is not long enough.
  3. 84
    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.

    Loved it. Much better than the original. I am so glad they didn't put in the loot crate on every corner and the new gear was very cool Loved it. Much better than the original. I am so glad they didn't put in the loot crate on every corner and the new gear was very cool and creative. Also I really enjoyed the way that the 2nd act was brocken up into smaller parts. Definitely took away that dragging feeling I got in the original from it's longer acts. Love the prestige classes and feats added and can't wait to see more. Gogo Deekin!!! Expand

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

    Solid NWN expansion with strong focus on RPG elements, good story, first part in the snow, second in the desert, so enough variation here andSolid NWN expansion with strong focus on RPG elements, good story, first part in the snow, second in the desert, so enough variation here and despite mixed reviews I was actually nicely satisfied with Shadows of Undrentide. Created a new char for that exclusively to spice up things a bit, took me about 30 hours to finish, so good chunk of quality content here, although the next expansion - Hordes of the Underdark is even better! 7/10 Expand
