Neverwinter Nights remains a fantastic RPG, but the Enhanced Edition on PlayStation 4 fails to recapture that magic. If you can look past the incredibly dated graphics, there's tons of classic role playing to get stuck into, but playing it with a controller and clunky UI is not particularly pleasant. Considering that this is playable on pretty much any computer you can lay your hands on, or even on your phone, I'd steer clear of this particular version unless you desperately want to sit on your couch with a controller to play.

Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition on Nintendo Switch suffers too many technical hiccups to be worth getting in its current state despite being chock full of loads of content.

Though the dated presentation and omission of some multiplayer features undeniably rankle, Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition still manages to acquit itself ably as a landmark RPG that deserves to be absorbed by an entirely new generation of gamers.

Buried deep within Neverwinter Nights' loins remains an entertaining, engrossing and lengthy RPG adventure, bundled with oodles of extra campaigns and one-off adventures. But to enjoy that you're going to have to put up with some of the most stuttery, bug-riddled nonsense we've seen on the Switch. Fun and frustrating in equal measure.

A welcome enhancement to a BioWare classic that is worth revisiting if you can see past its aged look, but consoles may not be the best format.

Back in the 2002, Neverwinter Nights was one of the best picks for MMORPG fans and overall a revolutionary title. Though the lateley released Enhanced Edition almost stays the same as the 2002 version. Graphics, gameplay and even the story are kind of outdated and old, and they fail to attract newcomers. But the online mode is back, so old fans can play their favorite game in 2019 now.

We cannot recommend Neverwinter Edition Enhanced Edition for PlayStation 4 not even at a heavily discounted price.

While overflowing with content, the console port of Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition suffers from technical issues and poor controls. If you have a group of dedicated friends to adventure with the experience may be worthwhile, but there’s little compelling reason to prefer this version over the cheaper, more feature-rich PC version.

Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition is a great game marred by a half-done port for Nintendo Switch. More than 100 hours of play weighed down by poor control, glitches, bugs, and lousy performance in a game from 17 years ago.

Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition brings a classic game to a more modern look while retaining everything which made the original a classic in the first place. It's worth playing for anyone who hasn't ever played it and a fun trip through memory lane for those of us who have loved it. Unfortunately, the Switch version suffers from not having the touchscreen-enabled for navigating menus and in-game.
