Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition reviews ( 7 )

Notice how none of the negative reviews have anything useful to say. This is a great game, IMO better than Baldur's Gate and one of the best Infinity Engine games next to PS:T. It has fantastic and fun combat, decent story, and awesome dungeons. Enhancement is really nice and bug free.

It works very smoothly, the new spells are pretty neat, and its nice from a roleplaying standpoint to have all the kits available. They also added in two new cleric kits. Supposedly the Priest of Tempus gets additional dialogue but I haven't yet played as one so I can't say how much that is. Still, its a huge improvement over the original (which I sparked up to compare it with) and it doesn't seem to me like its has the kind of problems that BG2EE currently has. The only fault I could maybe give is that they should have added in more kits, though these are relatively easy to mod in anyways.

If you've never played Icewind Dale at all, see the last part of my review for an explanation of what to expect with the game. First, I'll start with a review of the enhancement. This is a beautiful enhancement to an awesome game. It contains all of the expansions and content from Icewind Dale, plus some more. I know that many critics and users will complain, as always, that it doesn't add enough content to warrant the $20 price tag. I disagree ($20 is not expensive for a game) and IWD adds even more than BG1 and BG2 enhanced editions did. It's very similar to the latter two games, but since Icewind Dale originally didn't have very many class choices, you're given all of the kits from BG2 plus a few new ones. The new quests and content add about ~6 hours of play (there are $20 games out there that take this amount of time to beat) and much of it is drawn from deleted content that never launched with the original game, which is awesome to see, as a fan of IWD! The UI is beautiful. I have experienced no bugs at all and everything is running flawlessly. The release of the game came quickly and as a surprise. **************************************************************************************************** IWD AS A GAME, WHAT TO EXPECT: Icewind Dale is a Dungeons and Dragons-based, isometric RPG that uses the Infinity Engine, with a combat system similar to Dragon Age: Origins. It is like Baldur's Gate but at the same time, very different. Icewind Dale is not dialogue heavy. In fact, there's very little dialogue, although the small amount that exists is well-written. The plot IS good but it is rather straightforward and basic, with a couple of twists towards the end. The game has very little city exploration or party banter. What it does have is the following: superb music, incredible atmosphere, top-notch level/dungeon design, beautiful artwork, extremely high replay value, a sense of adventure and wonder, and strategic, fun, challenging combat. The beauty of the game comes from the music, art and design. The fun of the game comes from two things: (1) combat - wish very well-designed fights that require placement, strategy and planning and can be very rewarding on higher difficulties; (2) party creation. If you HATE creating full parties and spending hours thinking about how your party will work, this is probably not the game for you. If you don't hate that, it's a lot of fun and adds a ton of replay value. If you're one of those people who hates being given "premade" characters that you can't customize or build from scratch, THIS is the game for you. You get 6 party member slots. You can decide how to play the game in whatever way you want. Solo with a sorcerer? Play with 6 archers? Duo with a 'decoy'/'tank' and healer? Make an all-evil party? An all-good party? A mixed party? Sure, you don't get the party banter of Baldur's Gate, but there's so much freedom. You can name all of your characters and make them from scratch, gear them up, give them different stats so that they work well together. I have spent hours devising ways to create an effective party, e.g., 2 melee, 2 casters, 2 decoy/tanks, or a mix of classes (multiclassing/dual classing is one of the best parts of D&D). If this appeals to you, it can be SO MUCH FUN.

The original game was good for me too, so i'm happy, that it was enhanced. What i really like in the EE version of IWD compared to the BGEE-s, that it comes out almost bug-free for the first time. For example, when i put my custom sounds in the proper folder it works like magic. The only setback for me is the fact, that the EE-s runs on my laptop with slower speed, but this is partly my fault, because i use the same machine for 8 or 9 years now.

Icewind Dale is good team-based RPG with huge focus on combat. The plot was very simple and straightforward but still engaging, combat - interesting and tactical enough on Hard difficulty, only the final fight was very dissapointing. Beamdog have done really good job 'enhancing' this one: the game looks decent and feels comfortable to play. Except for pathfinding, it's still terrible)

IWD is no baldur's gate or even skyrim, you have no banter or a vested interest in keeping your companions alive, the plot is good but that's all. The kits does bring it up a notch since the original had vanilla classes

Storyless boring dungeon crawl. No history or realms lore. Narrow long dungeons where your party constantly gets bottle necked or outright stuck. Kill a goblin then a skeleton the a zombie and it just goes on and on and on. Icewind dale was obviously just a money making exercise riding of the success of baldurs gate. You can tell the developers hardly put anytime into making it compared to baldurs gate, goblin, skeleton, zombie then 2nd level of dungeon, goblin, skeleton, zombie then 3rd level of dungeon........ahhhhhhhh please shoot me so boring
