NWN Module Review: Snugglesburg @ NW Vault

by Kalia, 2006-06-01 15:41:00
With a name like "Snugglesburg", one can hardly be surprised at a 4.5/10.00 score from the reviewers at <a href="http://nwvault.ign.com/View.php?view=Reviews.Detail&id=465" target="_blank">NW Vault</a>. Intended to be a right-leaning political satire, it appears to have failed in its goal: <blockquote><em>I think perhaps mods like these are why a Smy scorea ? was created. This score would have been a 5 or 5.5, because, despite its flaws the game does tell a mostly coherent story with some amusing moments. However, the author chose to, at various random moments, shove his rightwing politics down the collective throat of his players. I have no problem with well-written political satire from either end of the left/right spectrum. There may even be a place for it in a politically themed NWN mod, but (unless you are a Rush Limbaugh devotee) the attempted humor in this mod falls flat for many reasons.<br>Firstly, without exception, it comes from nowhere. One second youa "!re in the middle of a halfway decent dungeon crawl, the next youa "!re subjected to the authora "!s opinions on womena "!s lib or homosexuality (the first is a very bad idea and the second is an abomination practiced by dragon cultists, in case you were wondering). Secondly, the commentary is ham fisted rather than sharp.</em></blockquote>Take the above-mentioned link to read the rest.
