Summary: I enjoyed Baldur's Gate I and II for the PC, for hack and slash "rpgs" they were immersive, and while not as fun as sitting around the table with my friends and my dice, they were a good waste of time. Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance is different. I picked it up because it was cheap, and I'm kind of a nerd and collect Forgotten Realms stuff, and it did say it followed 3rd edition rules. Right.
Summary: This game is not an RPG. Just because it bears the grand name of Baldur's Gate, that doesn't automatically make it an RPG. The storyline isn't even CLOSE to as good as the REAL Baldur's Gate story. Why is it assumed that just because you can level up abilities, you're playing an RPG? It's and action game,period. The graphics are good, i'll give them that, but that's all they get.
Summary: Yes the graphics are beautiful. And the action battle engine is well done. But after I reached hour 10, I was quite bored. This game has a severe curse of doing the same thing over-and-over-and-over (fighting) and virtually no story. And the ending is not even a proper ending: "The story has just begun... see you in part 2." LAME.
Summary: I'm not really a gamer, so i'll say this. It atleast got me playing untill the end. However, i RENTED this game and BEAT IT before i even had to turn it back in. So it gets 1 star for keeping me playing untill the end...but the end was too near. There really wasn't much to it. So yes, finally, i beat a game. Yah for me. However even i know a horrible game when i see one. Its not worth the money. Rent it if you must because you probably won't have it longer then that.
Summary: Monster och mörka hålor i all ära, men hur länge orkar man springa runt och slåss mot otaliga antal fiender i ett spel där man blir tvingad att spela med fusk för att ha tålamod att ta sig till nästa bana. Ur spelmässig synpunkt är Baldur's Gate ett fullständigt fiasko. Kan man trycka på action-knappen har man löst pusslet i Baldur's Gate, mer intellektuell utmaning än så finns inte.
