Summary: like the addon for BG1 this addon is great and improves the gaming experience, although Baldurs Gate is already great. The fights are perfect and there a are a lot of good story ideas to make the fights interesting: whether to understand the combat mechanics or the story.
Summary: Too much combat, linearity and not enough exploration, the pacing has gotten worse for the expansion pack. The ending, and story itself, are great though and bring a much needed conclusion to the fate of the children of bhaal, and the new dungeon, shrouded in mystery, Watcher's Keep, is one of the...
Summary: A good addon to one of the best 2D Dungeons and Dragons RPGs ever made. If you like the genre and you think you can overlook the slightly outdated 2D graphics (Just look at some screenshots or videos) than you should really give it a try. Its simply brilliant.
Summary: Conclusion to one of the most epic RPG tales ever. Compared to today's graphics the game is obviously very lacking, but like its predecessor the art itself is beautiful. Gameplay and mechanics is complicated, but like its predecessor the story, world, and basic exploration properties overcome this.
Summary: MORE BG2?... Give it to me :P It is an expansion pack, which is probably the only problem. I would much rather have seen a BG3 instead of an expansion pack... But, it is still "MORE BG2" and I can't get enough.
Summary: The conclusion to the Baldur's Gate saga, this expansion pack to Baldur's Gate 2 really ought to have been made and sold as a standalone Baldur's Gate 3. As it is, it feels compressed: a somewhat rushed conclusion to the Bhaalspawn saga, plus a huge dungeon in the style of Durlag's Tower: Watcher's...
Conclusion: If you have played any of the Baldur's gate series then it is a must that you get Bg2 and this expansion along with it.
Pros: I'm not going to talk about how it is great to go running around Tethyr killing off Bhaalspawn, because that is not the highlight of ToB. The highlight of ToB in my opinion was Watchers Keep which is a HUGE five storied dungeon in which are the hardest enemies you will ever have to fight in the w...
Cons: I guess I was expecting to much from the expansion pack. I was expecting for there to be more side quests, but really there are only a tiny amount compared to Bg2. But that is really the only thing I have to complain about this great game.
Summary: no game is perfect.but you are right.ending it like that.i would say theres only 2 things stopping this game from a definite 10.thats the XP limitation of 8,000,000 and online play.you cannot play with gamespy on this.or any other hosts.so finding mates to fightwith is dificult.the XP limitation...
