Product Description

Icewind Dale II expands upon gameplay elements found in Icewind Dale offering players the ability to hone their combat skills and achieve even more powerful possessions, spells, and experience. Icewind Dale II hosts a large variety of new weapons, armour and magical items and features all the spells from Icewind Dale and its expansion pack. Additionally, Icewind Dale II includes over 50 new spells such as Executioner's Eyes and Aegis, bringing the total to over 300 spells. A generation after the events in Icewind Dale, a grave new threat has arisen in the North; a threat that seeks to cut off the Ten-Towns from the rest of Faerun in a bitter power struggle. A vicious horde of goblins, orcs and bugbears has gathered beneath the mysterious banner of the Chimera and is attacking the port town of Targos. The town of Bremen has fallen, goblin raiders ride the plains, and a stream of refugees are fleeing southwards to Bryn Shander and beyond. Fearing that they will be overrun, Targos has sent out a call for all able-bodied adventurers, soldiers and mercenaries to sail north to stand with the town's defenders against the encroaching horde, and it's up to the players' small band of adventurers to save Targos from destruction. Yet nothing is as it appears and as the shadow of the horde falls on Targos, the players find themselves drawn into an escalating conflict that plunges the region of Icewind Dale once again, into war.

A band of adventurers are among the mercenaries called in to help defend the remote settlements of Icewind Dale after they come under attack by an army of monstrous creatures. Investigating the causes of the raids, the team embark on a lengthy trek into the hostile Spine of the World mountains.

Icewind Dale II was released in 2002 and was the fifth and last game to use the Infinity Engine. Originally used for Baldur's Gate in 1998, the Infinity Engine had powered a whole series of classic roleplaying games and was arguably the last great 2D engine before most games switched to 3D technology. At the time of its release, Icewind Dale II was heavily criticised for using old tech, made even more apparent by it coming out just a month or so after BioWare's Neverwinter Nights, with it's all-singing, all-dancing 3D engine.

Played without regard for such concerns, Icewind Dale II emerges as an enjoyable, solid roleplaying game much in the vein of its predecessor. The Icewind Dale games are very much the 'brainless action movie' branch of the Infinity Engine tree, where combat is emphasised over roleplaying. There isn't anything too wrong with that, especially since Icewind Dale II also puts more emphasis into puzzle-solving, quest-resolving and occasional bursts of proper roleplaying. You still spend 80%+ of the game hacking enemies apart, but there's a little bit more story and character to proceedings this time around.

As with the previous game, you create a party of six adventurers from scratch. Balancing melee combat characters with ranged ones with magic users (and a rogue to help open all of those locked chests of loot) is key to completing the game effectively.

What can one say about these older bioware/black isle titles apart from BRILLIANT, truly inspired games very much of their time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Baldur's Gate, but still a good game. 17 May 2012
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game was too good to be left with the meagre review here.

Using the same game engine as Baldur's Gate, arguably the best computer game EVER, this is more of an inferior production line model.

This is Dungeons and Dragons for the computer. Here you have six characters that you can choose yourself - for experienced D&D players I chose Paladin, Barbarian, Ranger, Thief, Cleric, Magic User. These are either fighters (killing machines), clerics (holy men with healing spells and slightly less killing machines than fighters), thieves (open locks, disarm traps, sneak around), and magic users (cast large variety of spells).

Plunged into a generic icy fantasy world - but generic because D&D influenced everything that came after - your team of characters has to fight a great threat - whether for honour, gold, or joy of killing depending on your characters' alignment. So the game is basically - go to a location, find out what you are killing and why (usually), kill the enemy, take everything they have, move to new location and repeat.

There is a fair degree of repetition in the game but your characters' constantly increasing abilities and the huge varieties of weapons, armour, and other gizmos make dispatching the hundreds of different types of enemy good fun.

For a game with huge personality and character, less linear, and a total immersive experience buy Baldur's Gate Trilogy. For many, many hours of hack and slay fun using your own choice of adventurers Icewind Dale II does the job.

PS. You don't need to have played Icewind Dale I first.

PPS. Make sure one of your characters chooses the Tracking skill to avoid being stuck half way through the game.

Sorceror.
