As much as I love NWN (particularly the work the mod community has done ... amazing stuff) I do agree that the first OC left a little to be desired.

I'm also inclined to agree that combat in the single player game does have something of a "charge-and-cross-your-fingers-hoping-for-a-critical" element.

However my pen 'n paper gaming friends and I recently played a module in multiplayer and I have to say that it was a great experience. Not the same as tabletop gaming, of course, but very good for other reasons.

And plenty of strategy ... though we did find ourselves yelling at the half-orc a lot.

Hmmm ... maybe it's not that different to tabletop gaming after all.
