NWN2 - First Impressions
December 28th, 2006, 22:37
Having received this game as a gift, here are my impressions thus far -
* Every time I play the game (fully patched), it screws up my anti-virus software so I have to shut my computer off "twice" before it actually fully shuts down.
* Very linear.
* Why use healing potions when you can just rest your characters after each fight?
* Spells are darn near worthless as you can only cast them once per fight & those are the spells that you have to "memorize".
* If everything is 3D, why not have a 1st person mode?
This game is dangerously coming close to leaving my HD. For myself, the biggest strike against NWN2 is the linearity. If I had wanted to play on a track, I'd get an FPS. As bad as everyone says that Oblivion is, that game just popped back onto my "If cheaper then normal, then buy" list.
