SummaryI'm sorry. I blinked and I missed the expansion.
The GoodI want to start off by saying Black Isle can do no wrong. They gave us Planescape: Torment, the Fallout RPGs, the Baldur's Gate series, the list goes on. They have never made a bad game. This is a big freakin' exception though. This still has the same classic dungeon crawl hack and slash as Icewind Dale...
The Bad...and all the same problems. The game has a run of the mill story and the expansion is all the same run of the mill, compacted into 15 minutes of gameplay. Seriously, this game takes about two days of on and off playing to beat. It has like five areas, all linear! There are around two side-quests. There are very few additions. The story is superficial at best. If their past games were at one end of the spectrum, this is at the other. And all of this at the price of a full expansion.
