The game is still enjoyable for what it is, but it has the tale-tell traces of Bioware's beginnings written all over it - where the essence of the game takes a backseat to its presentation.
What I am saying is, if you take away the elements of game that developers/fans consider to make it special, obviously you are left of mediocre game. You rate IWD higher than BG2 because you didn't like those elements that I and others love and makes BG2 an excellent game. For IWD it's combat and atmosphere that makes it great game, I just don't like combat.

And just want to point out, Torment is D&D which hardly had any combat
