Product description

Product Description

Icewind Dale: Heart of Winter is the first expansion pack for the role-playing game Icewind Dale. Like all expansion packs, it requires the original title to be installed in order to play. Heart of Winter shares the same time frame with Icewind Dale--the year 1281, the Year of the Cold Soul--and its five new major areas are located just North of the original game's locale. Players can take their 9th level or above Icewind Dale characters to Heart of Winter via a small house in the great tree town of Kuldahar. Alternately, players who have beaten Icewind Dale can import living or deceased characters to Heart of Winter, as long at least one character survived, and with the same 9th level or above restriction. Or players can simply generate a new party.

Both Heart of Winter and Icewind Dale use AD&D Second Edition rules, however some of the special powers and abilities in the Third Edition are available in the expansion. For example, thieves have access to Sneak Attack and Crippling Strike abilities, and the new spell progression tables for rangers and paladins have been taken from the Third Edition rules. In addition to new areas, powers and abilities, Heart of Winter features: new portraits, new player character sound sets, new monsters, 50 new spells, 800x600 resolution, drop-away interface, gem bags, potion bags, scroll cases, hot key that highlights normal doors and ground items, and the ability to buy multiple items from stores. The biggest change is the ability for all character classes to reach 30th Level, and Druids can advance higher still.

Amazon.co.uk Review

Icewind Dale Heart of Winter is the add-on pack for the original title that was released between Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate 2 and served for many as a stopgap to keep you busy while you waited for the latter. However, there were many improvements in the game engine by the time Icewind Dale was released and it was an exceptional game in its own right.

Now, Black Isle, the game's developers, have released an upgrade to Icewind Dale and if you were a fan of the original then this is right up your street. Taking your original band of troublemakers north to travel to new, unexplored areas, will bring you into contact with much tougher enemies than you've had to face so far. You can also start Heart of Winter from scratch with a new set of characters but, be forewarned, this is VERY hard going.

The start of Heart of Winter introduces you to the new story line and then drops you into a small town. From here you must begin to try to fathom what to do and where to go. The one thing recommended is talking to everyone you meet, and that means everyone! You'll soon find that the story line is as well scripted as you'd expect from Black Isle and will be rapidly dragged into the lives (and deaths) of the characters you meet.

For newbies to the RPG fold then this might be a bit heavy going, and its probably best to start with the original before you venture here. Die-hard gamers who've played as much as they can of Icewind Dale will certainly be able to get your fix here.--Andi Flower
