Atari Australia Press Quotes - Windows:
    ‘Featuring 40 hours of brand new single player action in addition to features new to Neverwinter Nights (skills, feats, classes, monsters, weapons, and spells), Shadows of Undrentide promises to take the already stellar Neverwinter experience to an entirely new level.’- IGN

    ' I was also happy to discover that Shadows of Undrentide possesses the same degree of replay value as the original game. Once gamers have gone through the entire new campaign, they can find a lot of new and interesting things to experiment with the next time around - a characteristic that should define any decent RPG. Players that face NWN for the first time, will no doubt be impressed with the hugeness of the entire game. Involving story. New monsters, spells, tons of new items to toy with, etc. New classes are already leveled. Excellent sound. Adequate replay value. 85%" - Actiontrip.com

    "I’ve really become a fan of the Neverwinter Nights universe. Even though I know diddly squat about D and D rules I’m still in love with it. I have to thank BioWare for opening up such a grand experience to my imagination. Although almost an impossible task of exceeding Neverwinter, Undrentide does a good job of rekindling the light that was there a year ago. 8/10" - Tothegame.com
