What Gamespot Users have to say about Icewind Dale: Heart of Winter

  • User Rating 8.6

    Good expansion but far too short.

    Rated on July 15, 2006 by Shrog-III

    Heart of Winter is a good expansion to Icewind Dale. It not only adds an extra whole part to the game but if you play the original with it installed lots more special items are to be found. Whilst ...

    Great tactical battles

    Rated on September 15, 2004 by dryden555

    I prefer the first Icewind Dale and this add-on to the sequel, in spite of that fact the sequel is roughly 2 times longer. This game has no pointless filler and very little story. It really is all abo...

    Not enough RPG in the RPG

    Rated on September 30, 2004 by maxikyd

    So, Icewind Dale was SUPPOSED to be a role playing game.T his was merely a hack-n-slash, poorly disguised as an RPG. If that's what you're in to, you'll love this game, but after playing Baulder's Ga...

    Good game.....

    Rated on November 28, 2006 by Slayer_Sam

    For those unfamiliar with Icewind Dale, it is a Dungeons & Dragons RPG along the lines of Baldur's Gate, (though in this game, you create your whole 6 person party rather than pick up NPCs along t...

    A solid but brief expansion to a fun dungeon crawler.

    Rated on November 19, 2005 by Talonfire

    Icewind Dale was a fun dungeon crawler; so Black Isle thought an expansion would be a good idea: enter Heart of Winter. Heart of Winter can either be set during Icewind Dale (if you so choose) during ...

    While this expansion does bolster the main game, its new content can be perceived as too little for satisfaction.

    Rated on February 21, 2011 by Gelugon_baat

    Icewind Dale was a game that exceeded the expectations of those who had waited for Black Isle's next game after Baldur's Gate and its expansions. It turned out to be more than the filler in between th...

    Great expansion pack to an excellent game!

    Rated on March 21, 2007 by Alkpaz

    When I first played this game I also had a bitter taste in my mouth.. but the more I played and replayed.. I found the game to be a diamond in the rough.. Sure BG2 overshadows it.. but this should be ...

    Icewind Dale is a great Role Playing Game that can be played over and over again. Then Try Icewind Dale II for more Fun!

    Rated on July 19, 2011 by Riograndedan

    I have enjoyed playing Icewind Dale for 10 + years and spend at least 2 months of every year playing it over and over again. Each time I start a game I build a different Character and team to have a n...
