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."

Baldur's Gate beginner guide:

1) Buy and install Baldur's gate.
2) Start a new game.
3) Spend 2 hours rerolling ability scores during character creation.
4) Realize it's already midnight and you have work tomorrow morning.

This game is the reason I can now add 6 double digit numbers in under 2 seconds.

18/10

Alongside the original Fallout, Baldur's Gate to me represents the first true modern cRPG, and one of the first RPGs to me that made its blend of storytelling and gameplay seem almost effortless.

The game takes place in the Forgotten Realms along the Sword Coast. You're open to make any sort of character you want to go on your adventure. From an honest noble Paladin, to a deceitful Assassin. What is great about this is how it meshes perfectly with the storytelling. Most of Baldur's Gate is spent wandering and doing quests, and there isn't really an overarching "save the world" plot to keep you grounded. There's a very colorful cast of characters who can join your party too. From a cleric frozen in stone, to an evil greedy mage, to an overly enthusiastic Ranger who talks to a hamster. More than any other game, Baldur's Gate really captures the feeling of playing D&D near perfectly. I have never played an RPG that captures the essance of being "sublime" more than this game.

This would be all well and good on it's own, but Baldur's Gate's gameplay was done very well too. Combat is very brutal and punishing, especially at the start of the game. It runs on a very finely adapted variant of the AD&D system, so a lot of very old RPG conventions are present. Stuff like races are restricted to specific classes and mages are restricted to a single spell per day at level 1. What's more is that the classes aren't balanced against each other like in a modern day RPG, so the strategy to the game comes from building a balanced party of adventures. This is all great stuff and it makes the game extremely replayable.

Adding to that Baldur's Gate is essentially a trilogy of games. Starting with Baldur's Gate, continuing with Baldur's Gate 2 and ending with it's expansion Throne of Bhaal. All featuring much of the same cast of characters. So you get the most out of the experience by playing through all three.

Now whether you get this version of the game is totally up to you. You can alternatively get the original version from GOG for things like mods. I heavily recommend for this version to pick up a mod called BG1 NPC project since it adds things like party banter and romances.

I can't recommend this game enough, it's a timeless classic that still holds up. This game was pioneering in the art of giving the players choices that actually affect the story, outcome and the world surrounding it, but that's not the initial freedom that makes this game great. It's the character modification/arrangements you can make, you make your own party of friends/adventurers and your only problem is that you will have a hard time deciding which ones you want in your team because they are all likeable and diverse.

The forgotten realms lore, all witty comments, all the dialogue, the dnd charm -- beg on these bonuses and buy this motherfu- right now.
