games pretty good i own it for xbox but im lead to believe the PC version is better graphically due to screen shots. you said engine has it been released or just commenting on the game itself?

The graphics are really well done...and the game itself is one of the best I''ve played in recent years. If you have a fast enough PC it''s graphics are even better than the XBox version.

I believe it is built on the Neverwinter Nights engine.

Don''t think the engine has been released - just saying that I found it to be an incredible game, and from a programmers point of view, a damn fine engine.

It wasn''t built with the Neverwinter Nights engine as far as I know - at least not graphically. Both games do use the D&D 3rd edition rules for stats/rolls/saves etc though.

I played it at a friends house (pc version) but didnt like it, the controls seem very sloppy to me (but I find many console ports are like that) + I dont really like that kind of stop/start gameplay

It is built using the "Aurora Engine" which is the one used for Neverwinter Nights:

It will be interesting to see if Aurora lasts as long as the Infinity Engine as it is still being used years after it was first created.

Its a good game, but it seem rather 2dish to me. I mean very few elevation changes.

Another thing a I didn''t like about it was that the worlds seemed canned. By that I mean you have the all these planets to explore, yet the player very limited in what you can actually see and do on these worlds. I guess I prefer the open endedness of a game like Morrowind.

But I must admit that I am addicted to Pazaak (are there any Pazaak anonynous meetings in this galaxy?)
