Family friendly site Gamer Dad has posted a review of Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer. Handing it a stellar 4.5/5.0 score, Gamer Dad recommends it for the 14 and over crowd and champions the fun to be had via a network of family computers:
It is this innovative thinking and creative writing that make Mask of the Betrayer such an excellent game. Even if you skipped on Neverwinter Nights 2, I recommend that any role-playing fans pick this up - with Planescape: Torment-quality writing and characters and epic D&D battles, this is a blast of a gaming experience!
The world of Mask of the Betrayer is darker, more serious, and more morally ambiguous than that of the original Neverwinter Nights 2 campaign. The characters are complex, and the relationships are more adult. The game is Rated T and definitely deserves a 14+ GamerDad Age Seal due to some of these concerns. The turn-based battles are intense regardless of the ability to pause the action at any time. There is much more reading than in the original game, but this isn't intended for those too young to deal with the text anyway. This is a single-player campaign, so there are no special concerns added regarding multiplayer - but playing the game over a local network is still a blast for family gaming with teens.
If you have yet to check out Gamer Dad and you have a family of gamers, it's well worth your time to do so. It's a terrific review of NWN 2: MotB to boot so head out.
