Icewind Dale II is one of those role-playing game where you need a lot of patience in order to understand its mechanics. Similar to games like Baldur's Gate, the game has a lot of elements which the player should take notice off and master them in order to have a chance at this game. But does that make Icewind Dale II a bad game? The answer is NO, because challenge should be included in all games, no matter the genre. The story of the game is centered on the Icewind Dale region on the continent of Faerun and takes place 30 years after the events of the original game. It begins in the town of Targos, which is under siege by a goblin army. Targos hires a group of mercenaries to defend and from here the game begins. The first thing that defines Icewind Dale II is the character customization. Sure, it is common for RPG games nowadays to have this feature, but back then it was a revolutionary idea. Gamers had to opportunity to create their own characters and each telling a different story. Or, at least that's how some of us saw this feature. The gameplay is viewed from an isometric perspective, offering the player a head-up display, occupying the bottom part of the screen. While the beginning of the game seems easy, the later parts get more difficult and even harder if the player hasn't mastered the use of different skills and magic spells of the character. These mechanics are the key between making progress or not making at all. There are a lot of things to experiment with in the game, but why won't you just try them out for yourself. The graphics are quite good, the cutscenes are beautiful and the sound department made a great job. Overall, Icewind Dale II is a great RPG game, but it's mostly recommended for hardcore fans of the genre or the gamers who have the patience to master the game's mechanics. If you want to play a great RPG game then this one is certainly for you!
