Neverwinter Nights has been hailed by many game critics as the best game of the year. I see it on everyone's top ten list. I was jonesing for a new game, so I bought it. At $55 it was a little steep, but the reviews said it was worth it. Were the reviewers right? Yes they were. This game starts out with a great character selection, and a good training vehicle. The game play itself is intuitive and easy to learn. The quests start out simple to accomplish and get more and more challenging. If you think I've finished this game then you are sadly mistaken. I need to gather more time away from personal tasks to play this enough for that. By mid-September 2002 I should be totally immersed in this game.
