Welcome back to Neverwinter!
Bards sing tales of heroes in ages past, but they rarely mention those that are yet to become heroes. One such hero is a farmer in the small village of West Harbor. Raised by the elven ranger, Daeghun, as his own child, our hero will embark on a grandiose quest against the King of Shadows. Neverwinter Nights 2 is the tale of his deeds. His adventures continue in Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer. Our protagonist discovers that an ominous spell has fallen on him. A curse of perpetual hunger--one which can only be quelled by consuming the souls of spirits. In order to remove the curse, he has to travel to the Shadow Realm, which harbors dark secrets and tormented souls.
Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir gives as a breather from grand quests of destiny and epic ordeals. You simply assemble a group of four adventurers (either by carefully picking out each of their statistics and skills or by randomly re-rolling your characters until you find the ones that suit you) and go where the wind takes you. Just make sure to get a good look at the map as you will need it to explore the wide open region of Samarach and the Sword Coast. Then, yet another adventure: in an ancient and forgotten tomb you found an unusual mask. It made you quite powerful but changed your life into a living nightmare. Strange, terrifying visions torment your psyche. Every time you try to get rid of the accursed mask, it secretly makes its way back to you. There's just one solution: set sail for Westgate and discover the secret of the Night Masks in Neverwinter Nights 2: Mysteries of Westgate.
Neverwinter Nights 2: Complete is an epic RPG set in the fantasy world of the Forgotten Realms, one of the most popular campaign settings of Dungeons & Dragons. Use all the wicked spells, feats, and prestige classes from the D&D 3.5 rules. Create your characters any way you wish, choosing from a wide variety of races and subraces, such as Tiefling and Aasimar. As if the pre-made campaigns weren't enough, you can take the reins and use the powerful Obsidian Neverwinter NIghts 2 Toolset to make your own adventures and share them with friends!

What a treat! The original campaign is fairly standard, although it has moments of brilliance (like the Trial), and some interesting companions (like Khelgar and Sand), and is well worth playing through at least once. The first expansion, however, is where NWN2 really shines.
Mask of the Betrayer (MotB) is phenomenal and is regarded by many to be one of the greatest RPGs ever made.read more This is thanks in large part to the writing from George Ziets and others at Obsidian (many of whom are now working on Project Eternity), and a very ballsy spirit eater mechanic which adds gameplay consequences to how you act (something modern RPGs have sorely needed). The story has been compared favourably to Planescape: Torment. It isn't about saving the world from a bad guy, it is about saving the world from yourself, and how you deal with your curse is entirely up to you.
Finally, we have Mysteries of Westgate (MoW). I can't credit GOG enough for managing to get this, because many people have found difficulties in finding it. The story is similar in some ways to MotB, but by coincidence - both were developed at the same time, and plot details of MotB were unknown to the MoW team. It is from the same people who made Darkness over Daggerford for NWN1, and features a beautiful city, well-designed factions and alternate paths (and endings) depending on who you side with. Overall its a fun and interesting adventure, but MotB is the real meat on this package.

Neverwinter Nights 2 has a rough reputation. Launched in 2006, the game was full of bugs and glitches. However, the quality of Obsidian's sequel to Bioware's original was still obvious. The various expansion packs, additions, and patches only help make this game that much more attractive. With the amount of user generated content available, Neverwinter Nights 2 is only secondread more to the original Neverwinter Nights in value for your money. If you want a great package with good gameplay that will last you for years, this is a good game to purchase.
Just be cautious that this game still has some bugs after all this time. They don't ruin the game, but they are there. Don't let that stop you from buying this and enjoying some of the best PC focused RPG goodness of the last decade.

Having Mysteries of Westgate included is an awesome addition. I thought MoW had disappeared from this reality alltogether.
A bargain at any price, what with 100 hours of gameplay and 10 000 hours worth of extra fan made modules at NWN Vault.
