This is an expansion pack for the game Neverwinter Nights 2. Overall, I had a very enjoyable time playing it, there were only a few things that held it back from having a higher score, most of them technical in nature. One of my biggest annoyances was the awful load times. Even moving into a small building took a long time, and moving back from a house into a city required a very long load.

One of the other technical problems I ran into were bugs and crashes. I am using the most current patch, but I had many incidents where the game would crash between areas, one time resulting in a blue screen and computer reboot. Some of this is understandable considering the complexity of the game, but overall it felt like it degraded from the overall experience.

On to the good parts though, Its a gorgeous game, and a great story with many branching options for how you choose to play your character. You can be a jerk and kill your friends and treat people like dirt, or you can be a saint, or really anything in between. They give you a lot of options. The music and sound effects are appropriate and npc AI is decent enough. Anyway, I had a great time of it barring some technical issues, so on the whole I would recommend it.
