Gamespot: Neverwinter Nights 2: Mysteries of Westgate Review

For going on two years, the biggest mystery about the Mysteries of Westgate adventure pack for Neverwinter Nights 2 was whether or not it would ever be released. Developer Ossian Studios finished the download-only module way back at the tail end of 2007, but the powers that be at publisher Atari held the game back for ages due to unexplained issues with digital-rights management. So, was it worth the wait? Not entirely. Even though this D&D adventure delivers plenty of bang for the buck, with more than 15 hours of dungeon delving for the low price of $9.99, two years of sitting on the shelf did not do it any favors. Although you can feed your swords-and-sorcery jones with this solo jaunt through an exotic new corner of the Forgotten Realms, the graphics and gameplay are lacking, especially by comparison with more modern role-playing games.

The Good:
* Good value
* Atmospheric setting
* Great new music

The Bad:
* Choppy story does little with the main plot
* Not as refined as the earlier-released NWN2 expansions
* Some awkward visuals and a strange lack of voice acting
