First Impressions: Neverwinter Nights 2

This week has been the most "game hectic" for me. I bought Dark Messiah of Might & Magic last Sunday, and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance last Tuesday. However, those games -although good- were only appetizers. So this past Thursday, I went out and bought the main course, Neverwinter Nights 2.

The game is awesome. It's still the Neverwinter Nights I knew and love, though it has something more to offer. There has been some changes, most notably, the controllable henchmen, better storyline, and no more generic tilesets. Though the sounds has been obviously recycled from the first game and there's no more epic levels. The prestige classes are still present, however. There are some new ones as well like the Arcane Trickster and Frenzied Berserker. Character creation is deeper than the first one with added deities and background traits. Other than that, everything here is still intact.
