    One of the best RPGs ever made! This will keep you occupied for ages!

    Icewind Dale is based north of Baldur's Gate in the region of Icewind Dale and starts in the small village of Easthaven. Whilst it looks and plays very much like Baldur's Gate it is more focused on th...

    As is to be expected of "Black isle studios" - outstanding fairytales of our grandfathers! :)

    Yes! It is a big and amazing fairytale as we see it in a beginning of the game: storyteller opens a book and starts to read us the tale of the forgotten realms. The same way i felt playing it - like r...

    Admitedly the game is good, but if you're not a hard core fan then it can get a little dead at times.....

    The game is a good game and pretty fun, and the story behind it is absolutely amazing. The only problem with the game that I find is that it can be a little dead at times and frustrating when your ch...

    great tactical RPG battles. Its all turn-based combat and very fun.

    Rated on September 15, 2004 by dryden555

    I prefer this game 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 about the battles and develop...

    hack-n-slash vs 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 Gat...

    The poor man's Baldur's Gate

    Rated on June 24, 2012 by aussieinvader

    Following on from the excellent Baldur's Gate series, Icewind Dale is a fun adventure which focuses more on adventuring than the deeply - immersive character interaction which was the hallmark of both...
