  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. The addition of dark powers broadens the depth of the game and blends perfectly with the storyline.

    Shares most of the same flaws and virtues than its predecessor. The story starts off a bit too slow and the constant need for spirit energy can be a pain at times, but the pace picks up nicely towards the end. There's tons of stuff to do and in that regard Mask feels more like a completely new sequel than just a normal expansion pack. [Nov 2007]
  4. An eerie, enthralling role-playing game that never settles for a cliché.

    Unfortunately, the camera problems from NWN 2 are still here.
  6. The game plays well but you should have at least a decent computer to play the game on medium settings.
  7. 70
    Even with significant flaws, it's still easily the best D&D game I've played since the power-duo of Baldur's Gate II and Planescape: Torment.

The story is vastly improved over the original campaign. It also allows you to level up your character to level 30 - with a plethora of new feats and classes to boot.

    It is an essential for anyone that liked NWN2 - a masterpiece of game making in every regard.

    RPGs are at their strongest when they create a world of wonder and intrigue with strong and interesting characters to discover and explore, RPGs are at their strongest when they create a world of wonder and intrigue with strong and interesting characters to discover and explore, and Mask of the Betrayer does this with a mastery that is seen in only a handful of the genre's best games. From shadow planes to dream walking to soul eating to dead gods, Mask of the Betrayer is enthralling. Expand

What can I, Mask of The Betrayer is one of the best expansions ever created. Obsidian have proved their abilities to create such piece of cake. It is improving EVERYTHING from NWN2. It is so ridiculous that expansion to good, well made game with lots of bad sides kicks ass so hard. For me, one of the best stories in rpg history, that was great pleasure of mine to play this game.
