    A welcome enhancement to a BioWare classic that is worth revisiting if you can see past its aged look, but consoles may not be the best format.

    Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition brings a classic game to a more modern look while retaining everything which made the original a classic in the first place. It's worth playing for anyone who hasn't ever played it and a fun trip through memory lane for those of us who have loved it. Unfortunately, the Switch version suffers from not having the touchscreen-enabled for navigating menus and in-game.

    The myth of one of the best PRG of all time doesn't resist time, even when it offers a lot of content and great rpg mechanics. Its visuals feels so old, and its control is not designed for enjoying in a console, whatever it is.

    Buried deep within Neverwinter Nights' loins remains an entertaining, engrossing and lengthy RPG adventure, bundled with oodles of extra campaigns and one-off adventures. But to enjoy that you're going to have to put up with some of the most stuttery, bug-riddled nonsense we've seen on the Switch. Fun and frustrating in equal measure.

    Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition on Nintendo Switch suffers too many technical hiccups to be worth getting in its current state despite being chock full of loads of content.

    This compilation has seemingly endless replayability, thanks to it having the potential for user-created content for those who are dedicated enough to figure it out. Even without all of that, the mixed bag of campaigns on offer take over one hundred hours to experience. It is an ugly and frustrating RPG to play; one that is woefully poorly designed, and very rough, with some glimmers of gold speckled throughout the DLC campaigns. Only those who grew up playing Neverwinter Nights, or are die-hard RPG fans will have the resolve to enjoy this package of 2000-era BioWare. This truly requires historical understanding of the limitations of the time it was made, and that many RPG developers were just barely coming to grips with 3D engines. Everyone else would be better off replaying Skyrim.

To see this on a hand held system is a dream come true for me as I was a huge fan of NWN1 and also 2. Loading times are great and the action does stutter slightly when there are many enemies on the screen trying to roll 20’s on you :) The camera zooms out perfectly so as not to be so cluttered. All of the original creation for the characters is there along with prestige classes.
    Though I am only 10 hours in it i have played through the entirety of NWN several times and can recommend this for any diehard fan looking for a 3rd ed DND game on a hand held.

A slightly clunky UI is to be expected for a pc to console port but it works and now people get to play an excellent game with some of the very best writing Bioware had to offer. Expand

This port is about a 7.9 out of 10. It has a clunky interface that is not tutorialized very well. The menu music is broken when creating your character, and there are performance issues and bugs. With that being said, it is still a pretty good port. Based on my first impressions, you get used to the interface pretty quickly and the game sucks you into a D&D universe. It also comes with a bunch of content. I think it is a solid port, especially when considering it is now portable. I would wait for a price drop, but overall a good port, with continued support and will eventually be patched. Expand
