I don't like it as much as the first.

  • Summary: I really loved the first Baldur's Gate for PS2 so I was really disappointed when I started playing this one. I didn't like the new armor eating enemies. I know they were trying to make some exploration dangerous and more exciting, but un-equipping/re-equipping all of your metal armor was a real hassle. Also, the platforming parts fail miserably when there's wind involved, especially with an isometric view. One wrong step and it's back to the last save point.

  • Summary: It's not near as much fun as the 1st one and was very difficult for me to find - Maybe that why lol

An enjoyable game with a few shortcomings

  • Summary: I had just finished playing the first Dark Alliance with a friend this past November, so I didn't have too long to wait for this sequel. I thoroughly enjoyed the first game with its brilliant graphics and challenging levels, so DA2 had a lot to live up to. Overall, I felt the game was not as challenging as the first and it took less time to finish, despite having more levels.

I've had higher expectations from this

  • Summary: a year or so ago, after playing the first BGate, I thought this was an easy to get used to and addicting game to play. Hack and slash for gold and search weapon racks to collect hardware, open treasure chests for plunder and visit a local merchant via depending on what part of the map you were on to buy and sell goods. and that is good!

This game is only for those who were really into the 1st

  • Summary: This game is basically an expansion to the first. The story continues directly after the first. The graphics are basically the same. There are five starting characters rather than three. There are new feats and spells your characters can use, and the armor is custom designed for each character when they wear it. The map is expanded but you will go to some of the same areas as the first. The number one problem is the monsters are the same.

Only Average

  • Summary: Baldurs Gate 2 is not a horrible game, but its not a great one either. It is almost exzactly like the first one, the only difference is the levels. More of an expansion than a sequel.

5 star game with a 1 star ending boss

Joel DiTullio, Amazon

  • Summary: I had a great time playing this game right up until the end. I ended up at 24th level with not much upgraded equipment due to rust monsters. Even worse I cannot go back to other areas and build my character up more so that I can be more powerful against the last boss now that I reached him. Why does every game writer decide that a game can be fun right up until the end where you must include a highly annoying hard to beat boss!

Beware

  • Summary: I rated this game as follows: the graphics are great, compared to the 1st one, the story line isn't too bad, but, on a scale of 1-10, the aggravation level leans towards a 7 or 8, due to the boss, Mordoc, is annoyingly impossible to harm. You think you have managed to inflict some damage on him, and he turns around and gains it all back.
