I've said it before, and I'll say it again. This is one of the most underrated games ever made, and if you like hardcore WRPGs like Baldur's Gate 2 and Divinity: Original Sin, and Pillars of Eternity, you really need to play this. Stop judging this game based off the first one, and give this game a shot! You'll be glad you did!

While you're there, if you haven't already, you can pick up all the EEs for Baldur's gate for about 15 bucks

Oh, and The Witcher 3: GOTY edition and VampireTM: Bloodlines are on sale as well!

I managed to play through the main campaign once a decade or so ago. Was a huge step above NWN1, but still a clear step down from, say, KotOR.

I tried to play one of the expansions a few months ago and had to abort because the camera is thoroughly atrocious. (Incidentally, a stupid person on PCH once told me that D&D games weren't for me because the camera was ruining the experience.)

Nawww, Neverwinter Nights 2 is inferior to 1. Game is just mediocore.

I can see how someone can find it better than KOTOR, but even then I don't get how that wouldn't stop you from thinking that NWN2 isn't amazing. What didn't you like about it?

Oh, and you 2 know that there's 4 different camera perspectives in this game, right?

Really? Well that's a first. I'd love to hear your perspective on this.

Didn't find the story of the characters to be quite as compelling as, say, the KotOR games. Also found the setting to be too firmly into generic fantasy lore; games like Baldur's Gate showed that even well-defined DnD lore can still feel novel if it's used in a certain way. I still give it like an 7-7.5 out of 10 (which, despite the cry of many internet lunatics, is pretty good.)

Yeah, I found them all lacking compared to the simple camera of the 2D games. The one camera I could have liked was the more modern behind-the-back camera, but that has the awful rubberbanding issue which makes it unusable.

Fair enough, for me it's the characters. there's a LOOOOOT of dialogue int his game, and it's so damn good! and yeah, glad that you liked it!

Agian, I don 't get it, there's an isometric camera view mod that's similar to Baldut's Gate.

I thought the game felt more restricted. Instead of huge chapters you got small maps that you fast travel between.
Felt more designed for a tighter single player experience and loses the group or coop play.

It's much, much better than the first one.
I have it on Steam, but I don't think they sell it anymore.
If you can get it on GoG , you absolutely should.
