    In some ways, Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition on Xbox One is Beamdog’s finest translation to consoles, yet in other ways it is one of their worst. However the strengths of both the original game and the excellent new control scheme make this adventure one that is more than worth taking in.

    Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition hides behind some of the most glorious moments of our past with a lazy yet just as enjoyable remastering as 17 years ago.

    This addition to Beamdogs rejuvenated D&D games didn’t hit the mark for me as the others did. Its slow-paced combat really kills the momentum and is much tougher than its predecessors even on an easier setting. The story itself is still interesting and gripping, but it’s not enough to save the game from its flaws. With it being so slow, tough and not very pretty it will be hard to pick this over games in the same genre. D&D fans, or fans of the original game may still find some joy here, but newer players may not see what all the fuss was about.

    Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition is an Overhead Isometric Dungeons and Dragons Video Game. Beamdog Studios brings us another remasteredNeverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition is an Overhead Isometric Dungeons and Dragons Video Game. Beamdog Studios brings us another remastered D&D Game! This time they've brought us Neverwinter Nights, complete with all it's DLC! With minor graphical updates, including cleaning up the UI, the game hasn't changed much from its original release. The main campaign is out of the norm for most gamers, but locked fans of the Faerun setting in for the long haul. The DLC is another campaign and starts you from scratch. The DLC Story was better received and still seems to have the same standings in the community. The game mechanics are based on the 3rd Edition Dungeons & Dragons ruleset, and having an understanding of those rules can help, but not having the knowledge won't detract at all from the game. The Original Game had a DM Toolkit, allowing for the creation of your own campaigns and adventures, with both scripted and DM controlled encounters. I have yet to find these features or any knowledge that they will be added to the game later. This hurts how I overall feel about the game as a whole, but for the nostalgia alone, another round of this campaign was a must! Dungeons and Dragons: Forgotten Realms fans Rejoice, as another set of adventures in Faerun awaits! If you're not a D&D old schooler, and just joining the fray, fear not! It'll be just as much of an adventure for you too! Expand
