The player begins the game by creating an adventuring party, which becomes enlisted as a caravan guard in the wake of strange events. As the story progresses, the player learns of a demonic feud that threatens the Ten Towns of Icewind Dale. In this hack-n-slash cRPG you play a combat oriented Baldur’s Gate — the graphics, the system, and the interface are just the same. The only real difference between the two is there is a lot more enemies to kill and much fewer NPCs to talk to.

Icewind Dale was released to positive reviews, with critics praising the game’s musical score and gameplay, the latter being compared to Diablo.The game received criticism for its similarities to previous Infinity Engine games. An expansion to the game, Icewind Dale: Heart of Winter, was released in 2001. A free expansion called Trials of the Luremaster was also released by the publishers, though it requires the Heart of Winter expansion pack to play.

One Response to “Icewind Dale I”

  1. Jeanne Taylor Says:

    I love this game that I bought years ago, but just now started playing again. I seem to be stuck in the Severed Hand in that I am unable to locate all four of the pieces of the Astrolabe machine. I thought I had them all, but the the response I get from the elf is, “get me a piece that fits”. I have looked at universal hints and still can’t figure it out. Please help. A
    A huge fan, Jeanne
