Product Description

Neverwinter Nights 2 (NWN2) is a computer role-playing game set in the fantasy world of the Forgotten Realms, one of the popular campaign settings of Dungeons and Dragons. It takes the player from the tiniest of villages into a sweeping tale of danger and war, chronicling their rise from a peasant to a full-fledged hero of the Realms, defending it against one of the greatest threats of the age. Build a character that suits your style of play - good or evil, chaotic or lawful, with any number of skills, feats and professions available at the click of a button. Whether lobbing fireballs and researching forgotten spells as a powerful Wizard, hacking a trail through legions of orcs as a Fighter armed only with a battle axe and your courage, or taking on the role of a Rogue that can slip into the shadows at a moment's notice, the choice is yours. Choose your alignment, your allies, your companions, and how you want your character to develop... design the character you want, role-play the way you want, and carry the battle to the enemy.
The design aspects of Neverwinter Nights 2 don't stop there, however. Past the campaign included with the game itself, Neverwinter Nights 2 also gives you all the tools you need to build your own modules, campaigns, and adventures for your friends - move buildings, terrain, script encounters, write dialogues, create quests and items - everything you need to create an epic adventure of your own is included in the toolset for you and any other worldbuilder to use. So if you are interested in adventure - or building adventures of your own - look no further. Neverwinter Nights 2 is on the horizon, and adventure awaits.

Customer Reviews:

  • It Fails on so many levels
    This game looks like its 3 years old and has a horrible INterface. The soundtrack is really good and the story is well written but the voices are 3 rate and the cut scenes are too talky. I have to agree with some of the other reviews that this game seems unfinished and has more bugs than a cheap hotel. The spells look great but thats about it for the looks. My characters frequently stop following the leader and nothing I do in the settings fix it, and believe me I have tried all of the settings several times, quit the game and even restarted the computer. Shame on you guys for making a game with such poor interface. ...more info
  • Neverwinter Nights 2 Review
    "Neverwinter Nights 2" is overall an awe inspiring game that leads to many hours of game play. The sequel to "Neverwinter Nights" stays true to its roots. Upgrading graphics and interaction between npc's, the game lets you create your character and manage him as you see fit. Overall, with your decisions in the game, your character will summarize the player as if themself was thrown into the game. Set up with a D&D style gameplay, the battle system uses a d20 style very similar to that of D&D. I really enjoyed playing this game and look forward to the expansion being released for the MAC OS. ...more info
  • I love this game, but Aspyr gets the FAIL
    I love my Mac, I am one of those people, and I love playing video games like anybody else, so when I want to play the 2nd part of one of my favorites games, then I have to buy it. I am a huge NWN fan and couldn't wait to get this, but because Aspyr doesn't care for quality and reliability, this game sucks. Actually, the game is great, the new features, gameplay, and story are a setup for another hit game, but Aspyr makes it frustrating and damn near impossible to get through more than 5 hours of gameplay without having to throw away a character and start over. Every once in a while the camera will start to spin around the character and not stop, even with an exit game and restart computer, or a revert to a previous save, once it happens, that character is worthless and unplayable. It has happened 7 times already and that is the last straw. And when that doesn't happen, the game crashes and I get stuck sitting wondering wtf just happened. I have a very high end system and have turned all the game graphics and settings down as a sacrifice in hopes that this would stop happening, it did not help. Now I thought this was an isolated event so I didn't mind purchasing Knight's of the Old Republic for the Mac. Same story here, game crashes and errors saying my hardware is insufficient, when my hardware is actually more then double the recommended hardware specs. I don't know, maybe it is Biowares fault and their games make it difficult for Aspyr, but I've had enough of it. BioWare needs to make a Mac version for all their games and release them along side the windows version. I want to know that my game is going to work and that the game maker has intended it to be play on the system you are using.

    Please BioWare, and all other game companies as well, hear my plead and give us Mac Users a little love, thats all we really need. And with Mac sales skyrocketing, why not get in on some of that money making action.
    If one major game maker like BioWare was dedicated to the Mac-fans then they would get all of that group without much competition, and maybe it would draw other companies as well. If we are willing to pay double for an Aspyr knock-off don't you think we really want to play your games?...more info
  • System Requirements????
    7-11-08
    There are no system requirements on this listing. I REALLY wanted to play this game but can't! Very frustrating!
    The min requirements are:

    MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS:
    * Operating System: 10.4.11, 10.5.1
    * CPU Processor: Intel Chipset
    * CPU Speed: 2.0 GHz
    * Memory: 1 GB RAM
    * Hard Disk Space: 6.5 GB
    * Video Card (ATI): Radeon X1600
    * Video Card (NVidia): Geforce 7600
    * Video Memory (VRam): 128 MB
    * Media Required: DVD-ROM

    So if you have one of the original 1.83GHz macs from 2006 it will not work right!!!
    The game bogs and the sound disappears after about 30 min of play. quit and relaunch fixes the problem but that is no way to play a game! Total bummer!

    update 9-11-08
    I do not know what happened to all the reviews that were here. There were originally over 20 reviews. They are all gone now. Most were not glowing. I save all of mine so I am reposting.

    I have since had a chance to play this on a machine in spec. It was OK. The new camera control is AWFUL! It makes the whole game tedious. I do not understand why they changed it from the original NWN. Did it seem broken to you? Me either. They also removed the ability to see elements of the game that you could interact with by holding down the tab button. In the original NWN when you hold down the tab, things would glow if you could pick them up or toggle ect. It made the game flow wonderfully. now you are moving you mouse around hunting for the "Hotspots" again very tedious. These 2 problems make the re-playability of the game unlikely. I do not even want to finish it a first time.

    In my opinion all they needed to change in the interface was to add another set of quick keys that could be accessed by holding shift/control. Everything else was fine.

    I have replayed all of the original NWN modules several times taking different paths each time. I'll be lucky if I finish this one at all....more info
  • Not bad but not meeting expectations
    Not bad but so far seems like a re-run of the first Neverwinter Nights. And the graphics aren't that much better but performance is noticeably slower on my 2.33GHz MacBook Pro, even though it meets the "recommended requirements" for the game....more info
  • Macbook users beware
    I purchased this product after enjoying my experience with other Bioware games and hoping for a similar result. Tragically this seems to run in a pattern of Obsidian products, with glitches and crashing flaws. I own KOTR2 for my Xbox and was not pleased with the level of testing and correction done by Obsidian in that project. NWN2 seems like a fantastic story line, but if you have a macbook (I own a new generation, 2009 intel Macbook) it will freeze up or crash on you during the loading sequences. After some digging on the internet I found that the graphics cards in Macbooks are not supported for the game and this causes the crash. It would have been nice for those of us who are not savvy in technical computer specs to make this clear before purchasing. I thought it best to warn other Macbook owners before they waste their time and money on this product...more info
  • A worthy role playing game
    This is a very worthy role playing game on OS X, worthy enough for me to go buy an Intel-based Mac in order to play it. No regrets, it's been months and months of fun to play. Performance is acceptable on a fair-to-middlin' MacBook Pro. The overall story is well structured, and the non-player characters have personalities and their own quests which you help them with. Save often, because the game may sporadically crash (once every ~8 hours of play). There is also a problem where your world goes spinning endlessly if you had the mouse on the edge of the screen when a dialog starts with another character (saving, quitting and restarting stops the spinning)....more info
