Mine crashes after about 20 minutes of gameplay in Windows 7 64Bit. Otherwise, I find it quite interesting so far.

Any game I can spend 4 hrs at a sitting with is decent enough in my books. ;)

I am installing it now in XP 32Bit, that should work for now until the Win 7 bugs are sorted out.
Great, I got my better half totally hooked on that game. Who is going to make me tea now?

I have no problem whatsoever with the game playing under Window 7 64bits RTC.

What drivers are you using for your graphic card? (and what is your graphic card by the same way? :P )

I am loving the game so far. I am playing a human noble warrior currently, and i am about 6-7 hours in on the game. Yes if you havnt played older style isometric rpgs in the past aka baldurs gate etc, it takes some getting used too. Make sure you press space and tell people what to do, its far more effective than just playing the one character and hoping you survive the fight. These type of games are about micromanagement of your resources in combat. You also have tactics menu which you can set up so that the ai plays the other characters the way you want them too in combat...who to attack and when to change targets, etc, and how to attack them. I have no issues with the graphics at all. They are not aion, or crysis, no. But saying the graphics are a 4/10 i think isnt giving the game a fair shake. This is most definately NOT a bioware fail. All the reviews coming in point to that. Is this game for everyone? no. But rarely is a game for everyone. If you like a challenge, if you put story over having to have the best eyecandy at all times. That is what this game is about. Not to mention they released the same game creator they used to make the game, to the public, which means i am sure this will be the next "neverwinter nights" for mods and comunity add ons. I cant wait.

I like it.

Tried it yesterday for a couple hours, definitely fun. I played as a human rogue noble, going to focus on dual weapons (ftw).

I've only had the game crash once, otherwise it's played smoothly. I'm on Windows 7 Enterprise RTM 64-bit.

I have only seen some gameplay footage on YouTube and the impression I get is that it's . . .

. . . a more polished version of NwN with NwN2 level graphics and a Mass Effect style dialogue system. So essentially it looks like a blend of the three best aspects of those games.

Is that a fair assumption?

I bought the game after work yesterday and played for about 8 hours straight last night, haven't had any problems, no crashes, etc... (win7 64)

I started inside a family castle and the graphics were so so... but after leaving the castle the graphics got a lot better.

Gameplay side of things, this game is absolutely what I was waiting for! Can't wait to get home tonight!
