Is Neverwinter Nights 2 any good?

I have a macbook air and I like to do some light gaming in my free time. Just recently bought Doom 3 and i'm loving it so far.

I've played Kotor and stuff, is Neverwinter Nights 2 like that game? I love rpgs and stuff so I was just wondering.

Also, can you move with the keyboard or is it strictly point and click?

This video review from gamespot was posted in another thread today:
http://www.gamespot.com/neverwinter-nights-2/

I've played the game, and I loved it!

You can steer the chars with keys, but since you often have a party of 4 people, it's usually easier to click where to go, unless you wanna totally really on the AI.

It is good. And the story is fun. You can move with the keyboards. Have a good time.

It is a great game, not quite equal to the first, but still very good. I just bought it again last weekend on Aspyrs 5 buck sale on the app store, but it would be worth it even at the regular price.

Its a great game! However, I don't think that the expansions are available for the Mac.

Played the original Windows version years ago....It wasn't actually my kind of game, but I enjoyed it immensely.

I bought the Mac version when it first came out... a bit buggy, hardly ever updated and never got any of the expansions.

I got the Windows version with all expansions and played through everything by making my own port with Wineskin.

NWN2 was an excellent RPG for its time. Now it's old. You'll have to check it out to truly know if it suits you.

It was indeed. If you loved games like Baldur's Gate I guess you'll love NWN2.
Keep in mind, the first hour of the game is boring (it's kinda a tutorial), but it just gets better

The graphic may be old. But the story is still very good. That tutorial can be skipped.

Ok so I got it and i'm really enjoying it so far, had to tweak it a lot to get it to run on my macbook air but it runs just fine now.

Feeling really overwhelmed though. did the tutorial and everything but theres just so much to do with picking characters!
