    I've only played two of them and neither of them sucked so I can't really respond.

    Temple of Elemental Evil. I am getting the Icewind Dale collection soon, so I am hoping ID2 isn't crap.

    IWD2 didn't suck. I hated NWN, so I voted for that. I didn't play ToEE long enough to count it as something I've "played" and I've never played Lionheart. I'm with Aik though. There are far worse.

    I have hope for IwD2!

    I don't hate NWNn (the feats are cool), but it is a very shallow game compared to BG series.

    Temple of Elemental Evil since I believe you're not refering to the origional. Lionheart was shallow and turned into a slaugherfest late in the game with way overpowered enemies, yet at least it didn't destroy your computer when you try to uninstall it.

    I can answer that: Fel is a 2e 'purist'. None of the 4 games are followers of 2e rules.

    I picked Lioheart because I haven't played and I liked the others.

    IWD2 bored me to tears.

    NWN comes with awesome modules.

    Don't know ToEE so well because I never got far, the gameplay was awkward.

    Never played Lionheart.

    The suckiest game therefor is: IWD2

    I've not played Lionheart, so for me the answer was easy: NWN.

    I loved ToEE, but that may be because I had the official patch and the Co8 patch, which made the gameplay mostly bug-free. The game was too short for my liking, but the combat system was awesome.

    IWD2 was alright - on balance I think I like it more than the first game (definitely better than IWD1 without the expansions). The story was as lame as it gets, and the sections of the game don't flow very well, but the sections themselves were very good for the most part (the Fell Wood and Dragon's Eye level 3 being the exceptions)

    @lizardpudding: I think I can substitute for Fel and answer your question, at least as far as ToEE, NWN and IWD2 are concerned: because they're all 3E :D

    :grin: Well, in addition to that admittedly strong reason, there are a number of things I've heard about them that I don't like.

    IWD2: Like IWD1 but worse. I've already got 1, I don't need the sequel.
    NWN: One companion? Who you can't even control! :rolleyes: Sorry, but either I'm going solo or I want companions I can control. Preferably at least 3. :p
    ToEE: Where's my bugspray? ('Nuff said.)
    Lionheart: All I've heard about this game is complaints. And Lionheart was really a chicken anyway. ;)

    I've only played two of them (NWN + IWD), and while the NWN OC bored me heinously, I loved SoU. IWD II has some very nice touches, even if the neverending string of battles is a bit of a slog. Of the other two, I have no idea about Lionheart, but I believe ToEE to be turn-based and thus composed of the purest evil, by default. :p

    I've only played NWN (OC in both NWN and SOU) and IWD2 and I didn't think any of them "sucked." They aren't as good as PST or BG-series, but there are worse games out there.

    I actually liked the ending of IWD 2 because it didn't take itself seriously and honestly, what's more evil then trying to destory the ten town because some priest played a joke on you with blessed foodstuff? It takes a truly depraved individual to be willing to kill so many people over blistering skin and slighted pride.

    The fact you create all playable characters does leave for some dull moments as there's no banter or intergection, but that's the price you pay for complete customization. As for the pure NPCs I didn't notice much difference in quality between BG2 and IWD2, only that BG2 had a lot more of them (but then again there are more people in North Dakota then in the Icewind Dale).

    Also the game is more linear by necessity, you can't react to events as a payed mercenary by going off and doing whatever you like. BG2 was about Player Character, while IWD2 was about the forces acting around you.

    I'd say Lionheart because the other 3 are D&D and aren't supposed to be in this section. :grin:

    I didn't pick any of them, since none of them sucked in my opinion, I've played a lot worse games than those. If you hold them up against the BG saga and IWD saga they are bound to pale in comparison, but that doesn't mean they suck.
