Glorious corporate paymasters Eurogamer have published my review of the first add on pack for the second Neverwinter Nights game.
I have to give Mask of the Betrayer this: its qualities were enough to make me decide to restart the original Neverwinter Nights 2, so I could go all the way through the game and into the expansion pack in an enormous fantasy quest. This says something. It’s a big fantasy PC videogame quest like Grandma used to make.
Assuming your Grandma worked at Black Isle, obviously.
The rest is here.
Not joking about that either, meaning that I’d expect some NWN2 blogging here sooner or later. It’s an interesting experience to go back to the start of NWN2 after being in the expansion pack because it’s so vanilla. I mean, I like it, because I’m a big dirty geek, but it’s merely well-executed utterly derivative fantasy. More another time, I suspect.
