Even then, some bugs were still there, and there were new glitches I didn't like. How is the original? IWD2 is pretty fun once you figure out how to use the rules. Combining the 3. 0 rules with a real- time Baldur's Gate engine is about the only way 3rd edition is ever fun in video games. Of course, it's one of those kill- kill- kill games (hey, so is this one!), but I like it. I have a folder devoted to nothing but kill counts and the ledger- -I'm counting my loot! Multi- classing and other odd stuff is a little fun in that game even though the 3rd edition rules penalize multi- classing very badly.
My 1. 0th level Dwarven Fighter/Thief is nowhere near as powerful as the equivalent character in the AD& D games (well, more Hit Points, though), but for some reason he has more character. The original Icewind Dale? I finished the game years ago, when the game was newly released. It was fun because I like Baldur's Gate series. Last year I played both Baldur's Gate 1 (including Tot. SC) + Baldur's Gate 2 (including To. B) and Icewind Dale (including Ho.
W). I tried installing some patchs & tweaks from thegibberling. I finished BG 1, played BG2 till before fighting the dragon Bhaal- child. I had some difficulties in Icewind Dale in hardest difficulty (not Ho. W mode). All the enemies had high attack bonus, and my best tank can't do much against them. Then I resort to an old trick, let the enemies chase my tank while the rest of the party shooting arrows and slings on them. I played until I beat the demoness in Yuan- ti caves.
I played Icewind Dale 2 until I repel the orcish attack on the first town. I didn't like the Paladin, too plain.
I prefer the Neverwinter Nights' Paladin than Icewind Dale 2's Paladin.- -- Lay on hands!
