    i show the preveiw for the game and it look good, but is this just going to be the same as BG2 ( BG2 was good, but it was the same thing all the time) or some thing that we have not seen befor?

    well if any one see's any preveiw's for the game tell me where.

    Do you want a preview or want comments from first hand experience :D

    All-in-all the game kicks ass. It is closer to Icewind Dale as metal (Chris) stated but yet it's somewhat different. For instance. The first inside area you enter (not going to say what area it is as I don't want to give any part of the game away) is so large in size you'd think you were traveling about for miles. And when it all comes down to it... you really are. They have done a very fine job at representing just how large the city of Myth Drannor really is.

    As for your comment about something we haven't seen before. Aside from it's similarities with Icewind Dale as far as the amount of combat goes and it's setting / use of D&D rules..... it's unlike any CRPG we've seen before.

    NOTE: This was just from what I played at GenCon so there's no doubt in my mind that the game has only gotten better. I also wrote a preview about my experience with the game at GenCon which you can read about here.

    Fix that link, bud. It goes nowhere. :p
    Just write the URL normally and it'll be automatically converted to a link.
