Neverwinter Nights is an cRPG game based on the third edition of Dungeons & Dragons and dedicated to online gameplay via the Internet (single player mode also available). It is an attempt to transfer traditional pen ‘n’ paper roleplaying games to 3D world of virtual entertainment. The action of the game takes place in Forgotten Realms, primarily designed based on Advanced Dungeons & Dragons; however, this game utilizes the third edition of Dungeons & Dragons. The graphics of Neverwinter Nights are detailed and realistic, while the Game Guide is replaced by Neverwinter Toolset, a set of tools to design your own scenarios and planning adventures. The events of the main campaign are set in the area north from those known from Baldur’s Gate.

The single player mode offers an interesting and extensive story for about 80 hours of gameplay, similar to those of Baldur’s Gate series. Multiplayer modes are numerous: from simple duels to extensive epopees. What’s more, there is a possibility of importing the sets of new adventures, both the ones created by other players with Neverwinter Toolset, and those made by BioWare. Those sets may be linked to make a bigger world that players can host on the Internet. In multiplayer, the players can only control one character.

A server hosting the game in Neverwinter Nights requires at least a 56k modem so that 8 players can play comfortably. In order to host a game for more players, the host needs to have broadband connection, e.g. 1 Mbit for 64 players.


Game score 8.86 / 10 calculated out of 4125 players' votes.
