The 2nd Game

Ali-Docious, Amazon
29 July 2013
  • Summary: The disc itself is a little bit glitchy, but the game is a blast! If you liked the first one, you'll like this one too. It doesn't (so far) seem as in depth, but it's still fun. The characters are cool, with 5 (rather than 3) options, including 2 which are female. And it doesn't show them unclothed and in a thong like it did in the 1st one (a feature that as a mom of a preteen boy, I do appreciate). It's an oldie so the graphics aren't HD or anything.

  • Summary: Hi, as a fan of the first Baldurs Gate I also have become a fan of part 2. This is a lot darker storyline than the first game, but this adds to the experience. Hope you enjoy it as I have.

Gamer's Delight

  • Summary: Okay, so I may not be a hardcore gamer, but my husband is- he asked me to post a review for the game so that others might know how great it is. Kept his attention and definately stood up to the first game... for the price we paid, it was worth the deal... the graphix may not be all that anymore, but the story line of these two games makes up for the lack of pixels.

Good game, original Dark Alliance better

KJ, Amazon

  • Summary: Have just started to play this game with my husband as we finished playing the first Dark Alliance for the second time in a row. I love hack n' slash play since that's really the only thing I can tollerate for video games and love to release pent up stress. The first one was better, but this one is fun so far as it has a similar story line and hack n' slash activity as the first. This one has more options which is nice, but at the same time almost too many options.

Pretty good, especially in comparison...

  • Summary: I have read a great deal of reviews on this game and its predecessor, and many of them claim that the first game was superior to this one, but I just can't see it. The first game was short, there was no workshop to alter your armor and weapons (one of the best aspects of this sequel), and the complete shortage of character feats was quite underwhelming. This second game took all the crummy/boring facets of the first game and fixed them.

Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance 2

A. Rose "roseblood71", Amazon
25 March 2005
  • Summary: I really enjoyed this game. I have it for the Xbox and the graphics are well above average. This installment was much harder than the first and longer too. There are 5 characters to choose from ranging from the necromancer to the barbarian. The adventure is fairly long ranging from 7-12 hours depending on if you get everything. Another great feature is that each character has his or her own side quest which you can complete which will help rack up the experience points.

The greatest Action RPG ever?

T. Ryan Arnold "Teknohed", Amazon

  • Summary: Do you want to get your girlfriend into gaming? If you're like me the answer is yes. I know some guys with girlfriends who just "watch" them play games. I know other guys who outright ignore their girlfriends for the sake of gaming. But towards what end. My girlfreind can't be ignored and she certainly isn't passive enough to just watch me play for hours, so there is nothing for it but to transform her into a foaming at the mouth gamer like myself.

Pretty good, but with some reservations...

Lissa "starcrossedlady", Amazon

  • Summary: I adored Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, so when the sequel came out, we immediately snatched it up and raced home to see how much better they made the game. While I wouldn't rate it better then the first one, there are some big positives that I'll share first. One of them is the ability to tweak armor and weapons, customizing them to do different things and help out in various ways.

Creative, playable, and fun

David Romano, Amazon
19 March 2004
  • Summary: Well, here we have BGII. My friends introduced us to BGI, and me and my partner were instantly hooked! The play was easy, the plot was pretty interesting, and as avid tabletop gamers, we know how to use the skills and feats, which helped the play a lot. Fast forward to the torture that was BGII and the constant change of release dates. Well, it was worth it. The game continues to evolve.

Great for BG1 fans, newcomers may be less enthused

Amazon
9 February 2004
  • Summary: My husband and I loved BG1 and couldn't wait to get BG2. As has been said, this is more like an expansion of the last game. The previous storyling is referred to often and there are very few improvements or expansions on gameplay. One new addition is the ability to upgrade weapons with jewels, which my husband especially enjoys (it kind of reminds him of that capability in Grand Tourismo) and a world map that allows you to revisit different areas.
