Reviews

"The writing of Baldur's Gate has always been one of its strongest aspects. The story remains unchanged and still holds up."

8.5/10 - Destructoid
"Hammers out a multitude of bugs found in the original release, as well as introduces brand new characters, storylines, and modes to play through.

8.5/10 - Inside Gaming Daily
"Enhanced Edition has received a number of visual upgrades including support for high resolutions that provide a far more panoramic view of the game's lovely, lush backgrounds, and a mousewheel-controlled zoom function for quickly shifting to a more down-and-dirty view of the battlefield."

An AD&D adventure set in the Forgotten Realms. The Grandaddy of all isometric (top down) open world RPGs. The Gold Standard from 1998 by which all others of its type continue to be weighed, measured and found wanting. And while it's nice to see a resurgence of newer titles embracing this classic genre, Baldur's Gate is still yet to be dethroned as far as I'm concerned by anything that has come along since in terms of gameplay, story and immersion.

Although the graphics were revolutionary for its time, they're obviously well dated by today's standards. But once you get drawn into its story, colorful NPCs and atmosphere its technical limitations just fade away and it still holds up just fine.

Kudos to Beamdog for bringing this classic into the modern era of PC gaming.

Play it again.......for the very first time

I was an invincible demi-god, and then I met petrification.


PROS:
+Timeless classic of the D&D universe
+Excellent character NPCs of all variety
+Game length was not too long or too short
+Immersive story
+Voice acting was pretty good
+Late game stays true to the D&D aspect that there isn’t just one way to complete a quest
+Random Easter eggs and parodies
+Controls were pretty straightforward, felt like a RTS with a pause button
+Can export your character to use in Baldur’s Gate II

CONS:
-AI was incredibly derpy at times; especially pathing and combat
-Some available party members would just up and leave despite actively working on their personal quest line. Be wary of who you deck out in good gear.
-Some personal quests won’t complete if certain party members die during the last part of their quest line.
-Some spells are unclear if they hurt your party or not. If it doesn’t specify ENEMIES, it more than likely will affect everybody.
-Story was a bit slow up front, but stick with it.
