    Tags: Neverwinter Nights: Hordes of the Underdark

    <a href=http://www.techtv.com>TechTV</a> posted a <a href=http://www.techtv.com/xplay/reviews/story/0,24330,3622895,00.html>review</a> of <a href=http://nwn.bioware.com/hordes>Hordes of the Underdark</a> giving it <b>4 out of 5</b> stars. The review tells you nothing about gameplay but informs you that there are prestige classes and epic levels. Anyway, I wouldn't have posted this crap, but I noticed links to the original <a href=http://www.techtv.com/xplay/reviews/story/0,24330,3391522,00.html>NWN</a> and <a href=http://www.techtv.com/xplay/reviews/story/0,24330,3482318,00.html>SoU</a> reviews
    <br>
    <br>
    This is from the NWN review:
    <br>
    <br>
    <blockquote>The 60-hour campaign included with "NWN" isn't superfluous. It's long, bold, and features the kind of slick storytelling BioWare is known for. You can create any character race and class you like and immediately you're immersed in the story line.</blockquote>
    <br>
    And this is from the SoU review:
    <br>
    <br>
    <blockquote>Lame. Dull. These are words that come to mind when we think of the single-player adventure released with the original "Neverwinter Nights" title.</blockquote>
    <br>
    Uh, it's not exactly what you guys said before... And the last one is from the NWN <b>pre</b>view
    <br>
    <br>
    <blockquote>NWN isn't just about going up levels and fighting monsters; it's about story</blockquote>
    <br>
    Kinda ironic that most people would associate the latest NWN game with uber levels and uber monsters, wouldn't you think?

    What you saw was the shittiest network on television, G4.

    TechTV died an unclean death. Raped by Comcast. :salute:

    But she wont even go to her own forums and talk to people because in Geekdom she's supposed to be a goddess gamer grrrl.

    Olivia Munn and Layla Kayleigh are both much hotter.
    Still a shitty channel.
