Dark Messiah and Neverwinter Nights 2

I got myself Dark Messiah and Neverwinter Nights 2, so I've been M.I.A. from EverQuest lately while playing those new games ;)

So what are my first impressions?

Dark Messiah of Might and Magic is in one word: Awesome!
The graphics are great, the effects on the weapons and spells are nice. The way you fight is not exactly new, but very well implemented, the moves are done very well. The storyline could use a bit of work, I think you're too locked into whether you're good or evil.

Neverwinter Nights I can't really say much about at this time, a few things I can say though. The controls are simply put horrific. The camera is annoying, not at all like you're used to in the original Neverwinter Nights. Also the story seems a bit too rigid, I mean when I create a Lawfull Evil Drow, I don't expect to have been raised by a goodly man (wizard? priest?).
