Overall, Neverwinter Nights is an okay game. The polygon 3D graphics craze is okay if you're on a fast machine, but if you're on an older computer it's choppy and annoying (mostly because you KNOW how cool it would be otherwise).
The advertising behind the Mac/Linux versions of NWN is *highly* deceptive, though, in large part because they *never* finished porting the NWN Toolset off PC, and they likely never will. If you want a toolset to make your own modules, you have to go with third party freeware -- with no support from MacSoft or Bioware. Now this itself would be no problem -- except that if you look above you'll see the toolset is plainly advertised. I had to find this out myself the hard way *after* purchasing the full version of the game -- and yes, the module editor was one of the only reasons I actually made the purchase (the story mode module that ships with the game is CRAP, to say the least -- compared to Baldur's Gate II, the voice acting, story and engaging characters are all weakpoints in NWN).

Firstly, I agree with whoever disagreed with whoever said "bittorrent: gay." You obviously are new to the Mac p2p scene. Bittorrent takes patience (sometimes a week or more for that one big file, even with the average cable speed), but is miles ahead of most direct p2p methods in security and quality of the download... Look at the architecture of the system before you compare it to, say, Aqcuisition (::cough:: retard)

Secondly, the demo (1.0) rocked on a Powerbook G4 w/ 64MB VRAM, though with slight lag on use of the mighty Magic Missile...

And as for the full game, I am at once overjoyed and crushed by NWN's relationship with Macs. We get the "full" game new from Amazon for $46.88 (which, by the way is about 7 bucks -more- than NWN Platinum for PC), and still we get no toolset? Where's the love, Bioware? Overall, the game itself is -magnificent- and worthy of the highest praise, but once again the computer games industry falls short in delighting the true nerds of the gaming community.

Death to the PC!

The demo is also available here at GameArena (Australian mirror) if you have problems.

I'd really like to review neverwinter but 7k/sec. for a 240MB file is a bit [lot] too slow. Turns out I've been trying for the last 15 min. but all I get this time is a time out, the other times I was getting fed up after 8 hours...

For the love of god, would it be possible to provide decent server for the file.

Brillant Demo! Gives the flavor of the game with plenty of background for any class that you might want to play. Ran perfectly on my G4 533 Mghz AGP 2x. I did run into some unexplained quitting but I found that this only happens when you load a saved game and even then only infrequently. Highly recomended!

Played the demo last night on my G4 (PCI) 350Mhz with 448mb RAM, 32mb ATI Rage Nexus and OS 10.2.6. The game played perfectly using the default settings. I didn't notice any slow down or problems at all. Multiplayer games in the full version may require more juice though.

Played the full demo on my Pismo G3/500. Default settings. Nice game. Well laid out. A little jerky on my less than spec system but ultimately playable and enjoyable.

Download advice...
Make sure download filetype is bz2. Change it in the filename if you need.
YOU CANT RUN GAME FROM MOUNTED IMAGE. You must 1) mount image, 2) read the readme where it tells you to..., 3) Copy NWN Folder from mounted image to your hard drive, 4) launch game from harddrive.

I downloaded it whith no problem.
I played the whole demo with no problem
I downloaded the full Linux stuff too.
I merged Linux and Mac stuff in order to have a complete NWN for Mac. I could even translate it into French!
Sadly, the executable doesn't allow using Linux modules (that would practically be like a full version) so at the end of the demo, if I have loade the Linux prelude.nwm (instead of the default Mac Demo one), it says that it cannot load the module. Sad. I would have loved being able to do with a Mac what I coul do with a Linux (on my Linux box, it doesn"t work, maybe because of SDL)

For the rest, no Aurora (there won't be one for Mac, according to the main developper, Derek French), no online gaming...
