Yes, this is a good game. I am especially a fan of the barkskin spell, although the mage armor has improved from "Baldour's Gate".
I liked "Icewind Dale", too, everything would be nothing if it weren't for that swordcoast.
The hardest thing so far for me has been trying to use the right camera angle, all of them irritate me at times. I probably have done score of quests, but still haven't finished the game.
I loved the first one, i didnt even know they were making a second one until i was picking up Final Fantasy XII last week. but then ill be busy playing that for a while.
