NWN is excellent. Forget the OC and download some real modules from the NWVault.

Really. Saying NWN sucks based on the single player campaign is like saying Quake 2 sucks based on its single player gameplay.

The only excuse for not liking NWN is not liking RPG's in general.

But, I do have to say, Knights of the Old Republic is just made much better than NWN was. It has far fewer nuisances, and it really puts you in the game. In some ways, KOTOR is much like NWN with a very streamlined interface.

What makes NWN so good is the Aurora toolset. So what if the OC sucks? There's tons of much better single-player material available for download. Check out the NWVault and get some of the top rated and Hall of Fame modules. Series like Penultima, Penultima Rerolled, Shadowlords, Dreamcatcher, In The Company of Thieves, The Claw Chronicles, A Harpers' Tale, Crypt of Riddles, A Call for Heroes, and Parthenon are just amazing. There are plenty of single, non-series modules that are also very good like Pool of Radiance, Spires of Ravenloft, Elegia Eternum, Keep on the Borderlands, The Vethboro Dragon, Sex and the Single Adventuress, and Monty Python Adventures: Arthur Meets a Moose.

There are literally hundreds of hours of good quality community made content available.

Nwn is one the best Rpg for me for a not so hard-Rpg fanatic like me

It was much more easier from Morrowind and much less boring

I am sure KOTOR will be a very good game also...
a friend of mine who has it in Xbox he liked it very much...He said it is very good made and it gives a lot of freedom of choices without making the game boring (as it is with Morrowind)

It is much better from watching the new Star Wars movie series he guarranteed it to me

Oh, completed Kotor today . Was actually shorter than I expected: once I was going around Tatooine etc., I thought it was just a sort of introduction to flying around the galaxy. But it wasn't. Still, time to play as EVILPenguinJim

Bad Things About The Game:

Unequipping equipment from team members... can't they be 'auto-unequipped' when they aren't in your party any more? I couldn't find an option for that, and it meant that I occasionally left good stuff on the ship and couldn't be bothered to spend 5/10 mins going back, finding the character with the good stuff, unequipping the good stuff, boarding the ship again to choose the original character, equipping that character, and 'transitting back'...

Happened, like, 3 times .

3 types of lightsabers, bah. More than Jedi Academy, but still. I wanted a 'bent' one like Christopher Lee's!

I hit the experience cap!!!! I wasn't even trying

Ummm.... well, I suppose the bit on Taris on the start drags on a bit... yikes, not really a lot of problems with this game. Overall score of 90% sound fair? It took a day longer than Max Payne 2 to complete (although a 14-hour Dragonball marathon extended MP2's life quite a bit for me ). Roll on the Kotor expansion pack!

Use a download manager like Download Accelerator and start your downloads right before you go to bed. When I had 56k that's what I would do to get big 100 meg demo files.

How are you posting then? Whistling into a phone that is dialed to an ISP?

Heh, most NWN modules are less than a megabyte. That's one great thing about NWN: it's feasible to just go online, browse for a game, and join. If you don't have the module, you can download it pretty quickly.

Hehe, yep, that's both of my previous characters. Working on an evil one now...just started. I figure it'd be fun to try and stay neutral until I get to Dantooine, then go way evil. I wonder if all party members will stick around if I go evil? I also wonder if I can actually get all party members by taking the evil path? Guess I'll find out some of that this afternoon

Maybe NWN is a good game with modules, but when I bought it the day it was released, the multiplayer was buggy, the single player was tedious, and there was nothing remotely interesting about the game for the two months that I owned it. That's enough for me to still hate it.

I thought Penultima, the best module I've played so far, was released within that time? I could be wrong. But, regardless, this is one of those games where if you've shelved it due to problems early-on, you are really doing yourself a disservice if you do not dust it off and try it again.
