  1. It succeeds in presenting a believable story with likeable characters in a world that is far more detailed than the original. If I had to pick an RPG of the Year, (or hell Game of the Year) right now, Icewind Dale II would be it.

    Every shadowy corner in Icewind Dale II harbors one intense, challenging, and difficult battle after another. [Dec 2002, p.116]

    Every bit as good as you’d hope... If any criticism can be found with Icewind Dale II, it's that it may be more than a little inaccessible to the non-"hardcore" role-player.
  4. For a game that's billed as strictly linear, the multitude of possibilities in Icewind Dale II is striking; its breadth is in its depth, not its scope.
  5. Computer Games Magazine

    It may not look like much, but it's got it where it counts. [Nov 2002, p.80]
  6. Immersed in a good story, slicing enemies, completing quests, advancing you group's experience, are all elements that will keep you going in Icewind Dale 2 and they represent game's essential qualities. These features are all well-balanced and can guarantee some long hours of fun RPG fun.
  7. The control aspect is passable at times, and downright painful at others. Whoever wrote the code for this "nodes" system needs to be taken out in the road and ran over.

It was also the first game to use,The last game to use the Infinity engine, it represents the technical pinnacle of old-school 2D cRPGs. It was also the first game to use, although not fully implemented due to the engine's limitations, the Dungeons&Dragons 3rd edition ruleset. Although noticeably lacking in plot compared to such giants as Baldur's Gate and Torment, IWD2 caters an enjoyable, action-packed experience, as the journey you embark on with a party of custom charaters will throughoutly test you tactical expertise. The locations are varied and interesting, and so are the foes you will face. All and all, this is a hacky-slashy gem from the time many percieve as the golden era of cRPG genre. Expand

    There is some climate, there are some nice handmade graphics... Well, that's it. The mechanics may be a lot better than in the first game ofThere is some climate, there are some nice handmade graphics... Well, that's it. The mechanics may be a lot better than in the first game of the franchise, still it doesn't matter if the game itself sucks. It it was just a hack-and-slash game, I'd say there are numerous better games of that genre. It it was a joke, it'd be a sick joke indeed. Maybe if the game were created by fans, there would be something to be proud of.
    Unfortunately, the game has nothing to offer for most of us, NPCs are sick and the poor story cries to heaven any time someone tries to play that mess :(
