    The italian site RPG Player has posted an english version of their Icewind Dale II review, and they gave the game a score of 83 out of 100. Here's an excerpt:

    I must make a little comment: is Icewind Dale II a masterpiece? In my humble opinion it isn’t. In a masterpiece we search something that goes beyond what we’ve already seen, something that, for some aspects, tries to become the new point of reference undermining the “defeated” from the pedestal. Gothic has made it referring to npcs’ behavior and to the “vitality” of its world. Torment has made it promoting for the first time the narrative aspects, the npcs’ depth and dialogues. Morrowind has made it promoting freedom of movement beyond any limit. Neverwinter Nights is changing the role of multiplayer introducing the DM figure. The two Baldur’s Gate have given new lymph to the genre when nobody dared bet on crpg. Icewind Dale II, instead, doesn’t propose anything new. It simply improves some aspects of its predecessor. Black Isle has decided not to risk and has proposed us a game which is not new but cured in every little detail. The fact I finished the game without installing any patch proves it and this something that rarely happens..
