| Not Baldur's Gate, but still good...
Icewind Dale (or IWD) is a much different game than its predecessor, Planescape Torment, which was in turn much different from its predecessor, Baldur's Gate. Icewind Dale recalls fondly of "treasure hunts" from the pen & paper Dungeons & Dragons game. IWD itself has a very simple and flimsy plot, which is only there to move the game from one massive battle area to another. High powered monsters and high powered magical treasure is boundless. This is definitely a "Hack-n-Slash" game, and it doesn't try to be more than that. The graphics and music are (as with all Black Isle games) top notch. Not nearly as involving as Baldur's Gate or Planescape Torment, this game still can provide many hours of entertainment with almost non-stop combat. Ending is abrupt and pathetic compared with Baldur's Gate, as is the replay value. Still, highly recommended.
