    First of all - critical info that is not always listed for this game. Enhanced editions includes all the content of the Diamond Edition, which is main campaign, 2 expansions, and 7 or so standalone "modules" which are separate DnD campaigns with their own story/progression/etc.
    All of this is already on the disc and doesn't require downloads.
    Now for those who remember NWN on PC -

    Now for those who remember NWN on PC - console version is a much more immersive way to experience the game. What enhanced edition (for consoles) did is gave you direct control of the character with just the right zoom level (think controlling Aloy in Horizon Zero Dawn).
    Strategic/zoomed-out view is also available by tapping the touchpad.

    The lighting has been much improved with surfaces looking vibrant/colorful.
    Together with up-close view this gives it such an immersive feel that it's a totally different experience from what I remember of the PC version.

    In terms of performance, I am running this on PS4 Pro, 1080p. Frames are butter-smooth. I can't tell for sure if it's 30 or 60fps (feels like 60), but panning the camera never causes any stutter.

    Update after finishing chapter 1: Encountered 1 crash to home, 2 crashes on save, lost saves. Some feats not selectable due to buggy dialog windows.

    Neverwinter Nights remains a fantastic RPG, but the Enhanced Edition on PlayStation 4 fails to recapture that magic. If you can look past the incredibly dated graphics, there's tons of classic role playing to get stuck into, but playing it with a controller and clunky UI is not particularly pleasant. Considering that this is playable on pretty much any computer you can lay your hands on, or even on your phone, I'd steer clear of this particular version unless you desperately want to sit on your couch with a controller to play.

    If you didn't get the chance at the time to play Neverwinter Nights, then this is a good chance to enjoy a slightly better version of one of the most ambitious role-playing titles in history. Likewise, this game doesn't get the score it could have deserved, because the development company Beamdog couldn't improve the interface or the graphics, so it's an adaptation that has absolutely nothing to do with remastering.

    It's a game made for a very specific audience in mind, one which thoroughly knows the rules of Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition and doesn't mind the limited graphical capabilities of turn-of-the-century computers. For those fans, or for anyone interested in role-playing PC history, Neverwinter Nights is a no-brainer.
