    Gaming Illustrated have reviewed Icewind Dale II, giving it a score of 82 out of 100. Here's an excerpt:

    Practically no battle feels tacked on to extend the game. Instead, situations such as finding the vulnerability of a tough creature, while dodging the confusing clouds from a docile golem, make each battle a difficult challenge to conquer. The only thing missing from the combat are the mage duels (e.g. breaching a mage’s defenses) from Baldur’s Gate 2, but with over 300 spells available, there’s plenty of magic whizzing around. IWD2 states that the game automatically tailors encounters to match the party’s prowess; however, on normal difficulty, the battles were the toughest in any Infinity Engine game (and in most other CRPGs I can recall for that matter).
