I tend to disagree in part. While the storyline makes more sense and the extra areas are very cool, the balancing is far too tight in NOTR. It's too easy to end up with a build that just scrapes by for a while but get stuck in the late mid game (for instance by not being able to dish out damage fast enough to kill the regenerating dragons). Making character building an exercise in optimization by necessity takes some fun out of the game

EDIT2: I'd still recommend to install NOTR right away though, as one otherwise would have to replay too much of the game. Just grab some hints on character building first.
