Icewind Dale II Review
Like its predecessor, Icewind Dale II is simply a great role-playing game.
Black Isle Studios was one of the best if not the best computer games developer in history. Among their best achievements stands "Icewind Dale" set in Forgotten Realms and based on Advanced Dungeons & Drago... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful
The Infinity Engine is a very old engine that relies on hand-drawn art to look good; this much will be apparent to veterans of games that previously utilized it when they play Icewind Dale II. It hadn't exactly aged very... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Probably the best role-playing game ever made were it not wrecked by terrible quest designs. The combination of graphics, sound, challenging fights and unlimited ways of conducting battle make for a perfect game. The... Read Full Review0 of 5 users found the following review helpful
