Just wanted to let you all know that I picked it up this morning and have been having a BLAST!!! It's been a whole lot of fun and I couldn't be happier. The gameplay, control, fluidity, game art (amazing), storyline (weaved into gameplay so well)...you can tell Salvatore had a hand in it. Just really fun and definitely addicting.
High ratings from me...feel free to fire away any questions.

Did you get for PC or console?

PC is not out yet so he's probably talking about PS2.
Is the AI of the 2 party members that you're not using at the time as good as it was described in the interviews? They can strategize?

The AI for the non-controlled characters is awesome they do there own thing.
I can't wait until I get to the Drizzt encounter.
Sat, 18th Sep '04, 7:53am
There's actually a Drizzt encounter in the game? Aaaeerrgh! Now the game is ruined. :(

It was to be expected if Salvatore had a hand in it.

If you had payed any attention to the news posted lately, you would allready have seen him in a couple of videos.

There's a Drizzt encounter, a Khelben Blackstaff encounter and the Human Fighter character is straight out of The Two Swords when it is released.

Im a bit scared off of PS2 "RPGs" because of BG: DA and BG: DA 2 (have them both), but if you can promise me that this game includes a bit (or even better; alot) of RPing I might buy it for PS2.
Also, will the computer variant differ much from the console one?

Except from that you will play with mouse and keyboard, it will not be much different.

What part of the Forgotten Realms map does this game start in?
What are the other parts of the FR map that your characters have been to in the game so far?

@Bahir: Considering the reviews that have been written on the game so far, it seems your wish will not come true after all.

ahhhhh....soo many questions. sorry I haven't been back for awhile. I've been out of "connection" with the net. anyway...its not a flat out RPG, so don't expect that or let an RPG on PS2 scare you off. its really quite fun. as for the other characters like drizzt and Khelben Blackstaff...but I don't know why that would bother you...I was excited. ok...going back now. havent had a chance to further play too much since ive been gone. did anyone get this besides me...or ya'll waiting for pc?

I got it. Pretty fun, more hack-n-slash in my opinion than RPG. But its still pretty fun. The combos are pretty cool. And I agree, the AI is pretty good.
Fri, 24th Sep '04, 12:19am
yeah...the leveling up is a bit simple IMO...but its still a lot of fun. once you get the combos down its cool...plus the unified attacks are sweet.
Sun, 26th Sep '04, 4:51pm
I'm actually starting to lose interest in this game fast. Aside from the leveling up and upgrading weapons, its pretty much the same thing, over and over.
Sun, 26th Sep '04, 5:06pm
you cant really expect that much as its a real time console rpg i think :/
Tue, 28th Sep '04, 12:38am
wow...you guys are critical, eh? Replay value might hurt a bit, but im goin thru it on the hard level and still enjoying the challenge. story line is fun tho...dont you agree with that?
Wed, 22nd Dec '04, 3:19am
Have you reached the 'raft boss' yet? If so, how on earth do you get past it? I have tried everything... :( Hope it't not a bug.
PS, so far I've found the game for PS2 to be incredibly awesome! Call me easily pleased, maybe, but this is not a game I will get tired of any time soon. Hope you enjoy yours!

@Smyther: Use Ilius' magic to destroy it.
I got the game for the PS2 and I just love it! The story is great, it's definately a Salvatore story ;)
I also thought Drizzt's voice suited him perfectly, and reading his diary is just like reading a Drizzt novel :D

If Salvatore had a hand in it it means you can`t die in it.
The fellow never kills main chars :)
Getting on my nerves hehe.
Sat, 19th Mar '05, 10:01am
Actually, Salvatore has killed off four main characters! ;)
Won't mention names, in case i'll spoil it for some, but the one who dies and was brought back later were intended to be permanently dead, but there was to many complaints. Hmm.. maybe this is to much spoiler already? And it's definately off topic, so i'll just hush. :banana:
Anyways, i've borrowed the game from a friend for PC, and i think it is excellent! Beautiful graphics, and a catchy story. Haven't played it for to long yet, but i'm pleased untill now! I'm having some problems with the graphics right now though, but i think it's my computers fault, not the game.
