Neverwinter Nights 2

First impressions....

Diablo meets Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic meets World of Warcraft. I say that in all honesty as the items I find remind me of the stuff I found in WoW and the character interaction reminds me of KotOR... then overall gameplay and visuals remind me, fondly might I add, of Diablo.

The story starts off a bit slow, with a Harvest Fair in your hometown.
This is a bit of a tutorial so to speak.

When you play I recommend using the "click on the ground where you want to go" as oppose to using the WASD keyset... it just gets too squirrely... hell I could barely get through a door frame with WASD.
Graphically... there are a lot of texture enhancing options, most of which I haven't messed with.

Character creation is kinda nice, not the most intricate I've seen but nice enough.

Overall I feel as though there wil be many hours tied up in this game, however it may not be all in one sitting... as I may get distracted by another game/game type for a bit.

It may be too early in the game to tell but so far... I give it a 3.5 out of 5.
