Beamdog Review
I never write negative reviews. I love supporting companies by providing positive feedback and encouraging people like Beamdog to remaster our favorite games. This review isn't about the game or any of the gameplay mechanics. Nooooo, this review is about something so much worse than I let on. I have played Baldur's Gate 2 since I was 8 years old and it has been so near and dear to me that I cannot begin to express how elated I was at owning the remastered version, which is practically the only readily available version left online. So this review isnt about the game, but about the company and their "liberties" they have taken on our beloved classic-- A classic game so timeless, it is frequently listed as one of the best games and RPGs of all time.

What did Beamdog do that was so bad?

Beamdog, I want to personally and come out and say for all fans of BG2 that bought your game..

Why?

This game became less about remembering about the times we played it when we were kids or young adults, and more about putting Beamdog's dreaded arbitrary personal stamps all across BG2's UI.

1. Reconfiguring the spellbook (this just ripped my soul out of me)
2. Entirely scrapping the character portrait screen and replacing it with uncountable nuances that make it hard to even describe what was there before.
3. Changing the map display
4.Changing the inventory screen
5.Changing weapon icons
6. Simplifying item statistics
7. Changing the journal
8. God just too many to count...

Baldur's Gate 2 is Grueling
Making this game more accessible and user friendly isn't what fans of BG2 want. We want the challenge we remembered and the time consuming, rewarding experience of this perfectly crafted game. The game simply has little room for improvement on its original construction, besides some of its outdated graphics. We want all the quirks of the original game, and the massive game that Black Isle created, not Beamdog.

These Details Might be Small

But they matter more than one single change that was made for "optimal" organization or helpfulness. Baldur's Gate 2 isn't supposed to hold your hand and it shouldn't be changed like this. People that buy this game, including me, that are disappointed, will personally go out of their own way to make this barely recognizable classic fail and your company to lose the privledge of meddling with a piece of art so valuable, it proved to be too much for your company to responsibly manage with respect, and care to the creators, as well as the die hard fans.

Art is often said to belong to the public once it is crafted, because it exists with flaws, and is in our memories. We connect with these pieces of work on a level that we can see in ourselves, and our past. Everyone that enjoyed this game when it was released played one of the greatest games of all time.

Beamdog, do yourself a favor and fix this trash or let some other capable company fix what you have destroyed, because this isnt art anymore, its trash that I have to tolerate. Im a positive person and have always tried to be, but this is just awful.

Whatever you do...

DONT BUY THIS GAME

The dynamic zoom and scaling UI in widescreen high resolution is great!

Every other change made by the incompetent morons at BEAMDONG? All of the brand new, game-breaking bugs introduced? Not great at all.

Play and mod the original.

I just... I dont know why you would do this. I call to mind the ancient painting of Jesus in Spain that the nun tried to restore, making him resemble a downs chimpanzee. This is that you have done Beamdog. You have turned my Jesus painting, that I have been playing since before i could masturbate, into a chimpanzee with an extra chromosome. TAKE THE CHROMOSOME BACK!

Avoid beamdog's extremely bad version of this. Go pick up the regular version of the game on GOG instead of this horrible steaming pile of dung.

it's a wonderful game with an interesting story that will take weeks of regular play to complete. the spell lists are huge and varied, many unique magical items, some procured through quests (those are usually the best ones, but not always). if you don't mind the dated graphics and, in places, lack of voice acting -- plus if you like to read, there is a lot to read -- very immersive; highly recommended. a classic rpg.

Highy recommended. Beamdog didn't change a whole lot in their re-release other than graphic upgrades and new NPC's, but what they did change actually improved the game quite a bit. A lot of the tweak packs of the last decade have been incorporated, with ui improvements that are upgrades that don't over-simplify a game that really shines due to it's complexity.

If you have never played BG before, this is the ultimate in PC western fantasy based RPGS. An incredible game and a stunning example of what the genre used to be before modern gaming turned the genre into a series of "chase after the quest marker" and ridiculously simple talent trees. Make a mage or sorcerer or recruit some for your team and have a blast.

Allright, at first I have to mention one thing: I am a big fan of BG 2 and it is still my most beloved RPG ever. The Enhanced Edition used to be pretty good: some good upgrades, better graphics, changes to make the gameplay more comfortable. It was ok and I liked it. I'd rate BG2: EE 9+/10 back then.
However, everything good must come to the end in some point. For this game, the point was 2.0 update. I've run the game and I couldn't recognize it. What have you done to my favourite RPG, Beamdog?! What the heck is this abomination? Deafult spell autocast, tips popping up everywhere, highlighting the map so you know where you can go (WTF), health bars, completely demolished journal... What is this? Baldur's Gate 2: Version for people with Paramecium caudatum IQ? Are you f****n' kiddin' me?! You, Beamdog, have completely ripped of the good old spirit, the soul of this brilliant game. That's a thing I can never forgive you. Shame on you. Give my beloved BG back, you disgustig thieves.

Until there's no possibility to go back to the previous version of the game, it isn't worth playing. Sorry. I think I better go to my shelf, take the old CD version of Baldur's Gate 2 and install it, so I can save at least few of my nerve cells.

Thank gods I backed up my entire BG2 directory the last time I played. I added a couple player-made mods that I didn't want to have to scour the net to find again the next time I wanted to play.

I heard people screaming about Beam Dog molesting my 2nd favorite game of all time and against my better judgement, I gave Beamdog the benefit of the doubt. I installed it cleanly from Steam and loaded it up, started creating a new character and felt like I'd just taken a sip of beer spiked with Rohypnol. I continued though determined to see all the changes they've made. "Surely they can't have completely destroyed this masterpiece." I foolishly told myself as I finished creating my character.

"Oh god, those sprites look terrible" These were my first words upon seeing the opening scene with Jon Irenicus. Every sprite now has gaudy thick black outlines, completely ruining the way the original developers seamlessly melded their spritework with the prerendered backdrop of the game world. I hurredly retreated to the options menu to tweak everything as best I could back to the original. The menus look so tiny now on my 23 inch monitor. The UI overall doesn't scale well how it did before.

The map is awful, the journal is awful, the character sheet is awful, the inventory is awful, the spellbook is awful. Even the gods damned Save/Load screen is awful! How could Beamdog mess up this badly? It's like they purposely made everything worse, piece by piece.

I can tell a lot of things they changed for "streamlining" but this is a classic crpg. We know how to play D&D computer games, we learned how when the game first came out with no problem. Why do you feel the need to dumb this down?

I didn't continue playing this way. How could I? I'm not a fan of people staying in marriages where the husband continually beats and rapes his wife, and that is what Beamdog is doing to every fan of the Baldur's Gate series. Something truly wicked is happening within this company. I saw the signs when that accursed liberal politics expansion was released for Baldur's Gate I.

I opened up my archived BG2 install directory and copied the entire contents over this new patch, I've erased the abomination from my own PC, but I won't stop there.

Beamdog, this is directly for you. I am going on a full assault against you. You are Jon Irenicus holding my sister prisoner and experimenting on her in disgusting and abhorrent manners. I'm going to assemble a party and come after you. You will roll back these changes, you will publicly apologize for being child molestors of all Baldur's Gate fans. And you will relinquish your rights of this game to a different group who will treat it and its fans with the respect it deserves.

I never thought I would be posting a negative review of one of the greatest games of all time. Look at what you've made me do.

All you had to do was fix some bugs. Instead you wanted war. Well, now you've got it.

WTF have you done beamdog.

I have not played this game in few months, so i decided to have a quick go after reading about whole "2.0" controversy.

And I must say i agree with most of people that this is pure gar♥♥♥♥♥.

I really don't understand why beamdog would do this. It's not like there were people demanding to make this game garbage or anything. I don't see the point of this "upgade"What was the point beamdog?

This is a worse version of Baldur's Gate Tutu (look it up). This is certainly for the tablet (and does not look good even there).

Get BG and B♥♥♥♥nd mod them. While I love bioware, and would gladly pay again, just avoid this game, it's not worth your time.

You have been waylaid by Beamdog and must defend yourself.

There is no punishment on Earth that fits the crime of this hideous mockery of a once beautiful work of art.

You should all be ashamed.

I know that I am not alone when I say

♥♥♥♥ you Beamdog.

You can fix this ♥♥♥♥...

or you can be remembered as the murderers of one of the greatest games ever made.

"....Yes Boo, I agree. This group could do with a swift kick in the morals...."

Once this game was an unparalelled piece of art. It was probably the best game ever made. But then some idoits thought it was good idea to tamper with perfection. And now it isn't worth my spit.
Now the game is sluggish and it's not like the graphics were improved. It's just sluggish...
BUT WAIT! There's more. They also decided that it was a good idea to change the dialoge because it didn't fit their notions of pc. How did they miss the memo that this is a freaken RPG? The appeal of an RPG isn't in perfect cookie cutter charaters that always "behave" the way they should. That's boring and stupid. A good RPG has vibrant and dynamic characters that have flaws as well as strengths.
I keep hoping that Beamdog will see the light and fix the crap they've done to this game... But I'm not feeling to hopeful. What's really shocking is that they think any fan of this game is likely to buy their sequel to Baldur's Gate II. I'm disinclined from ever buy anything from Beamdog after the mess they've made here. And from looking at message boards and the like I don't think I'm the only one.

The only good thing enhanced edition has to offer is improved graphics/resolution. Everything else ("rebalance" changes, removal of CLUAConsole commands, and unauthentic new content) makes it difficult to play through the game without cringing.
