Default Neverwinter Nights: Rank the Campaigns

With all the Beamdog controversy going on with Neverwinter Nights, I thought it would be interesting to ask how people rank all of the official campaigns

I'll say Neverwinter Nights 2 Mask of the betrayer is the best one.

My ranking for all the campaigns though.
  1. Neverwinter Nights 2:Mask of the Betrayer
  2. Neverwinter Nights 2 Storm of Zehir
  3. Neverwinter Nights Darkness over Daggerford
  4. Neverwinter Nights:Wyverns Crown of Cormyr
  5. Neverwinter Nights 2: Original Campaign
  6. Neverwinter Nights 2:Mysteries of Westgate
  7. Neverwinter Nights:Hordes of the Underdark
  8. Neverwinter Nights Pirates of the Sword Coast
  9. Neverwinter Nights:Kingmaker
  10. Neverwinter Nights Shadows of the Udrentide
  11. Neverwinter Nights:Original Campaign
As you can see I preferred playing the campingns for NWN 2 more.

Let it be said the original campaign for NWN was the worst of the bunch. Hordes of the Underdark wasn't bad though, and Shadows of the Udrentide was average at best.

One thing I did notice was Mysteries of Westgate for NWN 2 is not on the list.

Darkness over Daggerford is the most balanced in every area I feel. It has good story, atmosphere, roleplaying, exploration, combat, puzzles, and great sidequests. It's essentially a full game content wise.

Wyverns Crown of Cormyr and Pirates of the Sword Coast are also well balanced campaigns, but they fall short of Darkness over Daggerford in overall size and quality.

Mask of the Betrayer has excellent writing and atmosphere, but the gameplay is meh.

SoZ is the most ambitious campaign, but it's a mess. Deadfire is practically SoZ 3.0.

Neverwinter Nights 2 OC has some strong moments, but it's mostly mediocre.

Hordes of the Underdark is good. Shadows of the Udrentide is average. The NWN OC is terrible and not even worth playing.

Yeah, it's a mess. but still playable and enjoyable.

I didn't want to buy PoE2 before all the DLCs are out, but your comment make me reconsider. I really liked SoZ!

If you like Storm of Zehir, then you'll probably love PoE2.

The last expansion Forgotten Sanctum is going to be released in November right?

If so it's time to play PoE 2.

In December. They're still adding in new content and features too. This is what's coming in the next patch.

Spoiler – Patch 3.1

NWN 1 was pretty weak. I liked NWN 2's original campaign and Mask of the Betrayer a lot, though. MotB did strain because of the high levels (spellbooks were getting BIG!) but the story was a good one. I would say that, overall, the two are about even. You have to play the original campaign to enjoy MotB, though, so I gave my vote to the original campaign.

I tried to play Zehir but just couldn't get into it.

Loved idea of Kingmaker but it fell short in implementation.
MOTB was better.

How about all games have a single huge lootbox you pay for up front that contains all the options, items, skins, unlocks etc? I'd pay for that!!
