My internet has been acting up lately, so I decided to put WoW on hold for awhile and dust off the old NWN 2 dvd. I installed it back in 2006, but my video card wasn't up for it. I got a new card since, so it runs smoothly now. I rolled a cleric who will eventually become a warpriest.

What did you guys think of the game, especially in comparison to the first one? I finished the first one and enjoyed it.

Loved the OC, loved the expansion. Some small complaints about how the expansion ties up, but nothing major (I can't really go into anything without spoilers). However, I do plan to buy whatever comes out next.

The crappy pathfinding in the first one completely turned me off. Did they fix that in the second one?

If you liked the first one for its MP and easy-building elements, you may be disappointed.

If you wished the first one were more like Baldur's Gate, you'll love it.

The game has been out long enough for a number of really excellent player-made mods to have been released. Don't miss Asphyxia.

They've released a good number of patches since then, (and they are still working on it), to a point where it has become a better game. The ability now to 'lasso' your players and give them orders ala BGII is a great addition. I have not really touched the expansion yet, so i cant comment there.

Liked it very much, but didn't care for the expansion's gimmick additions to gameplay.

I liked the NWN2 campaign a lot, but didn't care too much for the expansion. Didn't like the soul eater thing and thought the story was too convoluted and overdone.

Good game, the expansion pack was even better. If you install it, run the update utility and get the latest path. You do not want to play it in the state it was in on the DvD. Probably my favorite "new" game. There is a significant amount of community made content out there if you want a new game on the same engine for free.

If you get annoyed by the hunger, you can easily edit some xml files with notepad in your saved games to satisfy it. On an unrelated note, a similar trick can be used to stop global warming in Civ IV;)
