Icewind Dale 

A classic role-playing isometric style role-playing Dungeon and Dragon type adventure game. Icewind Dale starts off good.  Lots of conversations, background story, interesting characters, settings and short quests. Then you will encounter a lot of fighting. The fighting can often take over. The separation between fighting and learning is very clear.

Advantages:

  • Text can also be re-read as it’s kept in a “text log”
  • Can change languages no matter which version of the game you download

Simple language, game is relatively easy to control

Disadvantages:
