Not so much like Baldur's Gate to me, but who cares.

Summary: I have played many D&D video games like Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor, Icewind Dale, Icewind Dale II, and Heart of Winter expansion pack for Icewind Dale. I played for a little bit Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance on the Gameboy Advance and I was very disappointed because it only had one character to play throughout the whole story.
Summary: I'm the first to admit that there are now lots of wickedly addictive RPG games that make this feel like it is what it is; something out of the last generation of games. What's also worth mentioning though is that this is still a GREAT game; best when shared with a friend or family member. I would wager that this will still be the case 10 years from now. There's just something almost timeless about this game. And there are plenty of reasons to buy a copy of your own.
Summary: I loved this game, but felt cheated of an ending. The gameplay is fun and, at least on the GameCube, quite intuitive. It was easy to set and use stock spells. The story was interesting, and steeped in the Forgotten Realms feel. Well done, guys. But...where's my ending?! An RPG is a story. If the developers somehow missed this particular English class, let me spell it out:at the most basic, a story must have a beginning, a middle, and an end. Um, guys? You missed one!
A fun way to spend some time when you don't want to think

Summary: I am a huge fan of the Baldur's Gate/PS: Torment/Fallout games on the PC. I picked up this game thinking I'd have zaney NPC's coming along with me on some huge adventure full of sidequests and crazy fun. When I first started, I was impressed with the graphics and sound, and it seemed rather promising with the characters too. As the game progressed, I quickly found out that it was essentially a Diablo clone (i.e., a massive dungeon crawl).
Summary: I have never sat down and played a Dungeons and Dragons game, my boyfriend is in to it so I get the jist of things. This game touches mildly on Dungeons and Dragons and is more of a Diablo style game. You go through a story, battle various types of creatures and enter odd lands. It was good to see different types of creatures to fight and not the same thing over and over in each land you went through.
Summary: BALDUR'S GATE: DARK ALLIANCE turned out to be a better game than I expected it to be. I got it on discount and didn't think it would be that entertaining, but it looked different and I was in the mood for something more action/role-playing oriented, so I picked it up. I got involved right after I started and played on and off for three days until I beat the game.
Summary: I picked up Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance (BG:DA) for Playstation 2 after finishing Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes on the Xbox. I'm familiar with Bioware, who consistently makes games I really enjoy (including Neverwinter Nights and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic). Additionally, Baldur's Gate came first before D&D Heroes, so I knew there would be some improvements.
Summary: . great game. fun. . and incredibly short. . it's a rental based upon the length of the game. there isn't enough content here. . but what is here is fun. very fun. and that should be incentive enough to cough up the five.spot to rent this bad.boy some weekend.
Summary: My husband and I are always on the look-out for games we can play together, at the same time, and this fits the bill PERFECTLY. It's a lot of fun. We each pick a character and then go through the puzzle together. It's rather easy to solve, puzzle-wise, but the fun is finding the best weapons and armor and "talent" (spells) for your character.
