    Gameplay is a bit meh and dated, but this game has an absolutely mindblowing level design.
    It was a bit too long though, so after finishing it I've never found the will to play through mysteries, despite trying it few times.

    I seem to recall reviews saying that NWN was tied for the best looking rpg ever with Morrowind, while saying IWD 2 which came out the same year looked very dated, especially compared to these two. Funny how that turned out.

    Granted, reviewers are reviewers but this was even the stance of a local computer magazine's gaming section, who I'm sure were way too insignificant to get any boons from international game publishers. Besides praising the graphics as the (second?) best ever, their official review did slam NWN for the OC being mediocre.

    At least that magazine wasn't full retard.
    One I know (also insignificant to get bribes) not only praised the graphics, but also gave the game a 10/10.
    Same magazine also said Dungeon Siege was what Diablo 2 should've been.

    Wasn't around the internet much in those days to see what foreign magazines thought, and I don't care enough to check now, but I'd assume the general consensus was around those lines for NWN.
    In those times any kind of 3D was like fucking magic. The lowest common denominator was all over it and game journalists are literally the embodiment of the LCD concept.

    Positive so far, but I'm still on honeymoon phase with it.
    I've played about 5 missions
    -It is a tactical game where you don't directly drive car, but set a lane that it tries to follow, adjust speed into desired setting and choose when to fire weapons (there's turret which can be turned too)
    -I found controls to be easy to learn, thing like fine tuning speed is simple to do and there's handy "match target's speed" -command.
    -Weapons are cooldown based; no fixed ammo loadout in this one.
    -Ramming is viable and quite satisfying.
    -Haven't played any missions yet where player could control multiple cars, things might get hectic on those.
    -I'm bit worried about how game holds my interest on long term. Car customisation isn't any way near as deep as in Interstate 76, also mission variety might come an issue at some point. Game is probably best treated as something one plays 1 or 2 missions now and then; not main course.
    -Still nice to see entry to sub-genre which just comprises of games from indie scene (Convoy, Blasted Road Terror), venerable Roadwar-series and Darkwind: War on Wheels (haven't played that one, because it's multiplayer focused.)

    edit.
    -forgot to mention rather simple damage model: cars have just directional armour + general hp pool. There's no breakable components on cars at all.
