Baldurs Gate 4-in-1 Compilation (PC): Truly deserving of the term 'Epic'

cheffrey, Dooyoo
16 March 2011
  • Summary: Baldur's Gate is a game that truly merits the term 'epic'. Split over two separate halves, each of which has its own expansion pack that continues (and finishes) the whole story. Set in the Middle-Earth styled realm of Faerun, and utilising the Advanced Dungeons and Dragons rule set, this game is as deep as it is long. The game as a whole is divided into Baldur's Gate and its expansion, Tales from the Sword Coast.
  • Pros: A grand, engrossing, humorous epic of a game
  • Cons: Too many dull bits in the first half, some terrible voice acting

WHEN cRPGs TOUCHED THE SKY

  • Summary: This was the LONGEST the MOST FUN games I have ever played! The original BG series was excellent in all of storyline, gameplay, music and stability. Now, nowadays, sequels usually mean a graphically-improved expansion (at best). BG2 is a rare exception of the sequel clearly SURPASSING the original. And in the case of such great original, this means a lot!

One of the greatest PC RPG's of all time... bar none.

  • Excerpt: Having grown up with console RPG's, Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks, Hero Quest and The Lord of the Rings, Baldur's Gate certainly seemed the game for me. Open ended, non linear adventuring? A plethora of NPC's and playable characters, and six playable characters at that? Luscious scenery and backdrops, and a user manual so thick and filled with spells and tactics it was almost a novel in itself? Yes please!

An excellent game

  • Excerpt: Although the RPG world may be owned largely by Final Fantasy, one mustn't forget Baldur's Gate, a stunning RPG game for the PC, released in 1998 that set the world alight with its impressively non-linear system of gameplay, in which the moral choices of the player heavily influenced the outcome of the story. You begin as a young man who is poor and growing up in the town of Candlekeep.

Worth a try, especially if all you have is a laptop and the graphics card isn't that good

  • Excerpt: Although I used to game a fair bit on my desktop it no longer works and I bought a laptop for uni. Having been confined to my laptop for so long I decided it was about time I see if there was anything I could actually play on it to while away my time this summer. You start off in Candlekeep where you were raised by Gorion, a mage. You were an orphan along with Imoen whom you grew up with in Candlekeep. It turns out someone wants you dead.

Baldur's Gate is a classic oldschool RPG game, fun for all!

  • Excerpt: I've lost so many hours to this game! My obsessive love for this is second only to to the squishy lovey-dovey feelings I have for the Fallout series. It uses the Dungeons and Dragons AD&D 2nd edition rules system, so the setting and creatures that populate it should be familiar to D&D veterans.

The Best RPG Game,ever

marvin42, Dooyoo

  • Excerpt: Play Diablo II a lot and thinking it is the best RPG ever? Let me tell you, Diablo is not, and you just entering the first gate of RPG world. To me and most of the fans of Dungeons & Dragons, the answer is 'Baldur's Gate', produced by the famous team - Black Isle - the creator of Fallout (you may saw a lot of ads of Fallout 3 these days).

Baldur's Gate: not Balderdash!

TheDuke, Ciao
25 June 2008
  • Excerpt: "Warning! This review uses words not often seen in the real world such as 'foe', 'flee', 'maiden' and the like. Apologies. Baldur's Gate has long been regarded as the best traditional RPG available on the PC. When I say traditional, I mean a game with the usual experience points system, magic weaponry, party of adventurers rather than something like Deus Ex, which was a hybrid of a few genres. Installation of the game is a breeze and before you ...
  • Pros: A great, tradiational role playing game .  Loads to do .
  • Cons: Might not run on modern Operating Systems, some voice acting irritations .
