Game Review:

To be honest D&D wasn't ever really my cup of tea. I played it once for about a half an hour and it bored me. I should probably give it another go now that I'm much older, but even now it just doesn't seem like fun as I never got into the idea of being a loincloth wearing blockhead with more muscles than brains, or a pansy magician who can't even use a frickin sword because they were too smart to be strong enough to weild one. And they didn't have katanas, which happen to be my favorite sword. I've never really liked CRPGs either, I stuck with console RPGs (I was born and bred on Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior). So why then, do I love Icewind Dale? Hell if I know, but if even I, a non D&D Computer RPGer can find good things about this, it must be a respectable game, right? Set in the D&D area known as "The Spine of the World" in the Forgotten Realms world, Icewind Dale has you battling it out and spell slinging in environs cold enough to freeze the balls off of a yeti. Based off the Infinity engine, the engine which powers Baldur's Gate and Planescape: Torment, with a few tweaks and changes, of course, including a redesigned interface which I much prefer to Torment's interface.
