Game: Neverwinter Nights 2

I finally found some time to spend some time on the sequel of what was a fantastic game: Neverwinter Nights...

People who played the first game will not feel right at home immediatly, lucky there's a friendly tutorial to make you feel at home. The story is nice so far (I only played a few hours). The graphics are nice too, but I don't understand why the system requirements are so high, the game isn't that advanced, so I'm forced to play at 1024x768.

In short:

+ Plot.
+ Many classes.
+ Many side-quests.
+ Interesting companions.
+ Toolset!
+ Great multiplayer opportunities.
+ Sound and music.
+ Graphics are nice (especially spells).
- Other graphics are less nice.
- Also: high system requirements.
- Interface could be better.
- AI is sometimes stupid.
- Camera could be better.

Game: Sid Meier's Railroads And Trackmania Sunrise Extreme

I picked up two games recently: Sid Meier's Railroads and Trackmania Sunrise Extreme edition too. Trackmania is a nice game but quickly gets boring in my opinion: you have to play the tracks over and over again to unlock new ones. Multiplayer and the editor are fun, though.

I'm still going to get Need For Speed: Carbon though and see how that turns out...

Also: I've been spending a lot of time with Sid Meier's Railroads lately. The game itself is simple to learn but - typically Sid - hard to master. You build railroads and stations and connect cities and industries, then you buy trains and let them travel between them. Seems simple, but you have to watch out for your rivals, finances and economy. You buy patents and better trains over time. This is another great Sid Meier game. Nothing special, but it will keep you entertained until the late hours of the night if it's your kind of game.
