NWN 2 EE on Steam!
« on: April 29, 2020, 12:28:06 PM »
Just kidding.

NWN2 was such a fucking train-wreck that no one is willing to put any effort into reviving/reliving it. Sure, GoG has a "complete" version of the game but that's just a compatibility patch.

Meanwhile, not only is NWN getting a second life with an Enhanced Edition release on Steam, there is a new "official" mod for sale. Clearly, NWN 2's epic failure was fomented by a complete lack of understanding of what the NWN community was looking for in a sequel.

I'd agree with you to a certain extent.  Clearly NWN2 was a train wreck with regards to multiplayer and clearly multiplayer is what made NWN such a great game...So in that regard NWN2 as a successor to NWN was a failure.

However,

Getting passed the other fact that NWN2 was released rather buggy.  Once those bugs were resolved NWN2 single player campaign was actually an excellent CRPG and the expansion Mask of the Betrayer is even better, going so far as to get rated on some top CRPGs of all time lists.  SoZ was also very fun.
