    Yet another review of Icewind Dale II has been written, and this time it's RPG Vault's turn to say a few words.

    The environments in Icewind Dale II are painted and rendered 2D backgrounds. There are those who decry this, but there can be no arguing that the talented Black Isle art team has produced exceptional work in all areas, from the great looking backgrounds and locales to the character and monster depictions as well as their respective animations. Particularly at higher resolutions, the varied beauty of the Faerun comes to life. Of note too are the musical score and sound effects, which serve to complement and expand the game experience beyond your monitor. This is a well-rounded and polished RPG.

    cewind Dale II looks to be the farewell appearance for one of the most successful of all game engines. Recently, I read an article in a computer gaming magazine about the Infinity that postulated that it was responsible for more entertainment value and success than its vaunted Quake and Unreal counterparts. I certainly cannot disagree. To paraphrase a saying, if all's well that ends well, then Icewind Dale II ends Infinity well indeed.
