Baldur's Gate II Enhanced Edition (PC) Review

411mania.com
30 January 2014
  • Excerpt: As a huge fan of the original Baldur's Gate series, I was really excited to embark on the Enhanced Edition of Baldur's Gate 2 as my first review for 411 Mania. However, the experience turned out to be a “best of times, worst of times” situation, with lots of enjoyable original content but also an inexcusable number of bugs that turn an already challenging game into an exercise in frustration.

  • Summary: Baldur’s Gate II holds a pretty special place in my heart. It was easily my favorite RPG from my younger days, and to be honest not much has changed since. Classic Dungeons & Dragons gameplay combined with wonderful characters and writing is a simple recipe for a timeless classic. Visually, however, this timeless classic has certainly aged. And so steps in Beamdog with Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition .

  • Conclusion: The new content is fun and adds to the experience, but let’s not forget that we’re talking about Baldur’s Gate II here. While balls-hard and requiring a lot of patience if you’re prepared to take it on you’ll discover what is arguably the best and deepest RPG of all time, that many people believe represents Bioware at their peak.

Baldur's Gate II -- Enhanced Edition

IGN
27 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Whether it's chitchatting with a talking sword, solving murders, or escaping grim dungeons, Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition captures the essence of what makes fantasy RPGs so beloved. Short of a full-blown remake (which I, for one, would love to see), this is the best way for a new generation to experience that greatness for themselves. Even revisiting it after all this time, I laughed, I faced daunting challenges, and I wanted to play it again when I was done.
  • Pros: Improved visuals, Hexxat's storyline, Black Pits content, Challenging new encounters
  • Cons: Occasionally glitchy

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition

  • Summary: Baldur's Gate will forever be regarded as one of the classic PC RPGs. A lot of people never experienced it back in 1998, and it's not exactly the best-looking game anymore. To complicate things, it can be a pain to get the old game to run on newer machines, even after GOG.com began selling the title.

Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition Review (PC)

Softpedia
13 June 2013
  • Excerpt: The game includes the original Shadows of Amn campaign as well as its expansion, Throne of Bhaal, wrapping up the Bhaalspawn saga. A more combat-oriented expansion has also been added, The Black Pits 2: Gladiators of Thay. Baldur's Gate II was, as the name points out, the sequel to the acclaimed 1998 role-playing game Baldur's Gate, continuing the story where the first one left off.
  • Pros: + solid D&D role-playing, + deep story, + immense world to explore, + some new content
  • Cons: - unappealing visuals, - clunky interface, - steep learning curve

  • Conclusion: Baldur’s Gate is still a game that’s well worth playing, but the Enhanced Edition isn’t the version we’d recommend.

  • Conclusion: And that’s pretty much it. Should you buy Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition if you own it on GOG? Probably not. A few optional characters, a Horde mode, and a few built-in modifications do not a Really Special Edition make. You should absolutely play Baldur’s Gate if you don’t mind isometric RPGs that give you a real challenge, since the writing is still amazing and both the world and combat system are still really deep and engrossing.

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Review

AtomicGamer
5 December 2012
  • Excerpt: There are hundreds of excellent, classic PC games out there that could be getting remake-type treatment, but for many reasons, those games continue to live on best in the memories of those of us older gamers that remember where today's big-budget AAA successes came from. Many times, reliving those past classics turns out to be a disappointment, as the rose-tinted glasses have often washed away the issues and ugliness that most of the best games of the past truly had.
