Icewind Dale II

Recommended Posts

I have played almost all of the good DnD CRPG, BG 1 and 2 + expansion packs, IWD I and PST.

 

I wonder if I should complete my experience in playing IWD as well, mind you its a 2 years old game and I wounder if its any good still.

One of the reason I feel like getting it is because of the portraits IWD has. It might sound stupid but its like a tribute to the artist.

Well, besides the portraits the graphics in general are the best of any of the IE games. But, that

I dont like the fact that I am buying a product off another source beside a shop or some sort of a retailer.

 

That means I have to open some sort of account and worrying about package and if the box that comes with it its sealed, damanged or what not.

I have both games .. and I really like IWD2 .. for a multitude of reasons, I think it's a good story (not as great as 1 but good), and the character options are way better than IWD1 imo ..

 

I would give IWD1 a 9/10 and IWD2 a 8/10!

I really like how you visit all the old places in the sequal and see how it's changed..

I like making table-top characters for good systems, such as the World of Darkness.  There's a lot more to it than rolling attributes.

what have you been smoking there buddy. <_<

 

Back To topic ->

 

ID 2, it's not worth anyones time really.

As before everything in this post is... IMO

If this is a silly crack at D&D; I hope you realize that its characetr creation is so far past rolling 6 ability scores which takes up such a small, small, small, small, small amount of characetr creation effort. Just plain silly.

Where is the portion of D&D character creation where you develop personality, ethics, background, etc?

 

You can tell a lot about a roleplaying system by taking a peek at the character sheet.

 

D&D is about "roll" playing. You can "role" play in D&D despite the rules. But that's not what the rules cater to.
