The only good thing of this game is the multiplayer and Story Builder. Yeah, you can create your own story and play online with your friends or simple create a story for everbody download and play offline. The End for good stuff.
Everthing that made Baldur´s Gate II amazing Bioware simple remove. It´s NOT a simple Baldur´s Gate II fan opinion. Bioware realise at least some of their mistakes and correct in Neverwinter Nights II (that I don´t play yet).
In Neverwinter Nights you don´t have a 6 members party anymore. It´s just you and a henchmen (2 members) that you don´t direct control and belive me the AI is crap. It´s a big change (for crap), not only a detail
Since you don´t have a big party anymore, it´s now impossible to make a good team strategy and ALL game change for you be Ok no matter if you´re a warrior, mage, thief or whatever.
You still have traps in game but you will hardly die if you and your friend are not thief. You still have vampires but you will barely be affect by their Level Drain, then you really don´t need a priest with you anymore. There are NOT any monster with a magical barrier that protect against any physical weapon, then you don´t need a mage anymore.
The single player story is not good too, but at least you can create another. There is notthing you can do with the lack of team player.
You don´t need a team strategy to win the game. It´s almost a dumb Hack/Slash like a lot of crap that are popular on youtube. In Neverwinter Nights II you are able to have 4 members party. I hope all game change to have team strategy again.
