What Gamespot Users have to say about Icewind Dale II

  • User Rating 6.2

    Not even as good as IceWind Dale, the original. Just not as good as the Baldur's Gates games. Blindingly bland.

    The over-all greyness of the characters, set against snow and amongst dark structures, makes this game hard on the eyes. The plot is as linear as the original IceWind Dale, but the story itself seems ...

    Icewind Dale II is a wonderfully made sequel to Icewind Dale.

    Bored of just making one guy and then hunting for the rest of your team?

    Icewind Dale II as with Icewind Dale and the Baldur's Gate series was one of my first PC RPG style of games. Back then my PC was not very good but it could still play games like Icewind Dale and the B...

    This game is very good. That is, it has all the required components for what I consider a good RPG. A nice story, good voice-overs, superb music and a really great battle system - the best one to u...

    Everything the original game was and much more. Icewind Dale 2 is overall much longer and has many more options, but it still retains the tactical combat focus of the original game, without too mu...

    This game is a very solid successor to the original game (which I enjoyed a great deal). It terms of the style of the game as well as the engine and the interface, the game feels pretty much exactly ...

    Liked the first one much better -- this one has too much "filler" content simply to make the game longer.

    I really enjoyed the first Icewind Dale, but this one disappoints. The first game was a great 2D hack and slash game with a brief but colorful plot. The locations and maps were often interesting pla...

    "A great RPG that does not recieve the attention it deserves"

    Rated on August 02, 2006 by Berserk202

    Icewind Dale 2 is a RPG and a Dungeon and Dragon game. It is also a game that did not deserve all the attention that it should have had but did not. The graphics in the game are done well for the t...

    Icewind Dale 2 mixes little bit of role-playing with some unforgettable hack-and-slash action.

    Rated on September 28, 2004 by doctor_kaz

    Icewind Dale 2 was one of those games that kind of slipped under the radar screen a couple of years ago. This is too bad, because this is a really fun hack-and-slash game. As a bonus, it has some ni...

    An undiscovered gem - don't pass it up.

    Rated on August 14, 2006 by cheeseball123

    Like a lot of other people, when I first played the original Icewind Dale I was disappointed. It lack the ground-breaking element of Baldur's Gate and the immersive storyline. Yet when one compares Ic...
