Game Revolution approves of HotU

Tags: Neverwinter Nights: Hordes of the Underdark

Game Revolution gave Hordes of the Underdark B+ for being a "new dungeon crawl", having "plenty of new stuff", and sporting "twice the player levels".

But some of that love is missing from the single player. I prefer more open-ended gameplay than the linear story of Underdark, and it seems like all of Bioware’s best storywriters were busy working on Star Wars: Knight of the Old Republic, because the dialogue options are more limited, choices seldom effect your alignment, and someone seems to have confused being evil with being a jerk.​
I don’t know why the reviewer is surprised. It sounds like any other Bio game. Out of curiosity I decided to check what their impression of NWN was:

NWN: A-: This is a terrific game, one of the best computer translations of D&D ever created. Though its gameplay is a bit ubiquitous, it offers more dork depth than anything else in town and simply shouldn't be missed by any self-respecting geek.​
Riiight. How very objective of you…
