Hear, hear - there are two new reviews of Valdur's Gate 2 - Throne of Bhaal out on the net. The first one is at Multiplayer Online and has a 5/5 star rating for the game. The econd one can be found at The Mushroom, and rates the game 8/10. Here's a bit from the second review:

    For the most part, I very much enjoyed Throne of Bhaal. The plot was good, the dungeons were interesting, and the surprise new party member was a lot of fun. :) However, since it was such a high level campaign, almost every battle is very difficult. The entire thing (especially the Watcher's Keep) was exhausting. Every fight, every puzzle, and every NPC encounter was intense and required a lot of careful thought. This was the first RPG that actually fatigued me mentally while playing. On a few occasions I wanted to continue, but had to quit and do something else for a while because it was so draining. This challenging style of play makes finishing the game all the more satisfying, but it's truly a test of will to get all the way to the end.

Anybody tried to play the game under XP? I experience a reproducable crash at the beginning of the second chapter of the game - not much to do against it. Compatibility mode doesn't help either...
