With Fallout 2 and Planescape;Torment, Baldur's Gate II is one of the great gems of roleplaying, a timeless classic. Even after 14 years it is still a great game, atmosphere, depth, story wise, a masterpiece, a once in a lifetime game.
The story is gripping and epic enough to keep one thinking about it long after finishing the game.

There are countless quests and many different classes, epic battles and incredible humour (don't kill The Eye of the Beholder before you enter the under dark, makes for one of the funniest re-encounters in game in Throne of Baal), and last but not least gripping dialogues!

For anyone who likes RPGs, well worth a visit!

P.S.
And the MUSIC! The Intro Music still gets me going after all these years!

It's Baldurs Gate alright. If you're looking for a singleplayer experience on par with the original Baldurs Gate 2, then here it is. Additional characters are very interesting and fun to play with. A few bugs here and there, and some of them are quite bad and consistent, but overall I really enjoyed the singleplayer experience enough to play through the game 3 or 4 times.

Multiplayer on the other hand is broken beyond belief. If you intend to play BG2 with friends, my advice is to buy the original from somewhere else, because the Enhanced Edition's multiplayer is just straight up nonsense. Can't even get out of the tutorial area without some encountering at least 4 or 5 major bugs, including quests just straight up not working, or scripted events not occuring.

My personal favourite game of all time. Love all the choices you can make in the game and all the diversity in the world. As well as the epic boss battles and legendary items you can smith.

Well, the game was already a masterpiece when it was out, only to be seconded by Planespace: Torment for some (not me). Therefore, the base quality is still there. The original game had beautiful 2d artwork used as locations and they held their eye candy to this day.

What needed work was the paper dolls, spell effects, the UI, screen resolution (original one only supported 800 x 600 and 640 x 480) and one of the nightmares: 64 bit compatibility.

The initial release had bugs but at the moment, this game is quite solid. The story itself is probably one of the best modules ever written for Forgotten Realms. The characters (original ones) are all quite fun in their way and the newly added ones somewhat blend in. Although, they are neither as interesting as the original cast (like Minsc, Edwin or Jensen) nor their voice acting matches the quality of the original NPCs. Still, they don't disturb you much.

I have probably played and completed Baldur's Gate 1, Tales from the Sword Coast, Baldur's Gate 2 and Throne of Bhaal over 20 times, modding them to the bone. Nowadays, I am replaying the EE and I am quite happy that it helped me return to an already favorite, not causing issues with my high end rig. I am already halfway through the game, saving Imoen, and wife laughs at me whenever she sees me mimic the NPCs and their war cries.

Now that Pillars of Eternity and Torment: Tides of Numenera are coming, it would be nice to re-visit this masterpiece.

The Baldur's Gate series is without question the apex of Bioware development and a masterpiece CRPG. I'm not going to comment on whether or not the series is good or bad since it goes without saying that any rpg fan needs to at least give it a spin. What's important and what I struggled with since the enhanced editions launched was whether or not these new editions were worth it, or whether or not I should just dust off my CD copies from the days of yore.

It's true that there isn't anything in the enhanced editions that can't already be done with mods. The last time I tried installing the CD versions and modding it all up was a tedious experience though. It's also true that the added content is forgettable; the Black Pits is something that I'll never touch and the new NPCs range from tolerable (Neera, for example) to poor (Hexxat, for example).

But I couldn't care less about the above. For me it boiled down to two things: One, was this version easier to set up and two, was this version buggier than the originals. The enhanced editions are no doubt easier to jump into on a modern computer due to many of the enhancements mirroring typical mods that you'd want to install (porting BG1 to the ToB engine, for example). Many of the community's mods have been updated for the Enhanced editions as well, so you can still cry in a fetal position as Swords Coast Stratagems mages rip you to shreds if that's your thing.

Now, bugginess is obviously dependent on many variables and I can only experience my own playthrough of the series, but apart from one crash to desktop in the opening dungeon of BG2 my playthrough from BG1 to ToB was smooth and clean. The official forums would make you think that the game is a bug ridden mess and it kept me away from purchasing for months, but I do not regret purchasing it in its current state. I won't be touching my CD copy of the series again.

The best PC RPG ever made. Baldur's Gate 2 is the milestone with which Bioware has settled future games as neverwinter nights, knights of old republic and dragon age.

“Take heart fellow adventurers, for you have curried the favor of Boo, the only miniature giant space hamster in the realm!”

Baldur’s Gate 2: Shadows of Amn is a towering achievement in the history of role-playing games. Since 2000, when Black Isle Studios finally released this RPG sequel of its signature series Baldur’s Gate, the fan community has significantly grown in numbers.

This lavishly produced game quickly established itself as the most compelling, intelligent and exciting role-playing game available for PC. After Fallout, Planescape: Torment and Icewind Dale it was the next milestone of unparalleled quality, its renown extending far beyond the boundaries of the genre. For instance, the people, who were not interested in the RPG genre at all, were drawn to it, and particularly praised the smart and sophisticated gameplay.

The protagonist and companions have an incredible chemistry, and are surrounded by some of the most vivid and compelling fantasy creatures ever created. The storytelling is epic, and the memorable characters offer loads of witty and mature dialogues. Furthermore the different classes, alignments and team combinations create an amazing replayability.

In addition, the expansion – called Throne of Bhaal – offers up enough gameplay improvements, innovations, technical advances, and new content to justify itself as a worthy add-on to the ground-breaking Baldur’s Gate 2.

Fun fact: During the game's development, a quality assurance department was added to BioWare, and the game's publishers lent their assistance in testing. Because of its immense size with over 300 quests, Baldur's Gate 2 was considered a tester's nightmare.

This is still the greatest rpg I have ever played. I played this game when it first came out in its four disc glory and jumped on it when I saw it on sale. The story is compelling and engrossing and the sidequests are entertaining as well. The graphics hold up well and the style is still enjoyable to play through. The "enhanced" part is negligable, if you played an earlier version you are not missing much. This is a must play for any rpg fan.

One of the best old-school RPG, back when Bioware were making games so good, they were ahead of their time. Along with Kotor 1&2, Baldur's Gate 1&2 were Masterpiece, gameplay (Strategy, turn-by-turn, fully customable AI behavior, driven story) and the stories/lores in every cornes of the game makes its so much enjoyable.

Sometimes I'm kinda against old games making a "remastered" (which 80% of those games are adding minor tweak that a simple mod/download+unzip/ was fixing the problem, which many are still broken and force people to modify their old fix/mod so it works with both version now. (Aka, Myst,Riven,Baldursgate,Kotor,deusex,rollercoaster,systemshock,etc)

But this game is so worth it that you will GLADLY spend that time fixing some of the issues (you might get lucky also!).
I have 21 hours played and I still feel like I am early in the game and yet so much epic stuff happened and met so many people...

MUST BUY!!!

Just to note, Baldur's Gate is my favorite video game. However, I can't recommend this "enhanced" edition.

I spent quite some time debating whether or not to recommend this game. It boils down to this: The original content is great. Still is, still always will be. It's an epic adventure with great characters, good plot development and fantastic modified-2nd edition gameplay. The graphics show their age, of course, but there are still some great backdrops and whatnot. The dialogue in this game is probably the best of any game ever made -- epic when it needs to be, and hilarious otherwise.

Why I don't recommend this game is the new content, which is poorly written and boring. The new characters are written by people who clearly don't comprehend the wit of the original game, but think they do. It's painful.

Seriously, go find the original version on the internet somewhere for a much cheaper price, and enjoy. If you can't find it or just want a Steam version (which is what I did), then go for it! You will still have a great time with this version!

This game holds up amazingly well. I enjoyed playing the enhanced edition maybe even more than the original. Formatted perfectly for more modern 16:9 displays. There is also new optional content added which I did not play, but can safely say that anything you remeber from the original is still there.

Baldurs Gate 2 on its own is probable one of the best games of its era. A really enjoyable game that has withstood the test of time. I would recommend anyone give it a shot because it really is one of the best. Seriously the gameplay is spectacular. Expect multiple 40+ hr playthroughs with a ton of replayability.

This release by beamdog though is a joke. Game won't launch, more bugs than the original version, broken progression quests, incomplete garbage. It's like I am playing an alpha. Totally dissapointed at how this was released. The game is still one of the behemoths but the dev's of this release would make me stay away. Sorry guys.

It's quite simply one of the greatest games ever made. If you like RPGs and can get over the aged graphics/sound there's no reason not to play this. Won't bother ranting why because there's too many good things to list.

Well, what to say about this one? On many RPG-game community-sites, Baldur's Gate still ranks in Top 10 (just like the first part, Planescape: Torment and some other RPG games of Black Isles) although it is quite old and there is a reason for it.

Baldur's Gate II is a party based isometric strategical aD&D RPG game with a deep storyline, moral choices, real interaction between your NSCs, lore to almost no end... Almost anything a real good RPG needs.

ICompared to the first part of the series, there are some differences. The story is more linear. You have less open-world exploration but are driven either to your next main quest or to one of many subquests. This reduces the risk of newcomers getting lost in endless exploration without knowing what they have to do next, but I realy liked the true open-worldness of the first part, so this is a little downside in my opinion.

Everything else is still the same old-school RPG-style like the first part. So it is realy some kind of must-have for hardcore RPG gamers. Oh, and you can import your character from the first part which is a big pro for this game. There are only very few series which allow really carrying over your char.

This edition is shipped with the "Throne of Bhaal"-AddOn which was not the best Add-On Black Isles ever made. The story and the enemys truely seem overloaded and a lot exxagerated most of the time and so are the items and the "epic" skills your characters will achieve to beat the game (which is not very hard, even on increased difficulty levels). Buit still it concludes the "Bhaalspawn"-storyline of the series.

The Enhanced Edition comes with another campaign "The Black Pits II" continuing the arena-fighting campaign from the enhanced edition of the first part with even more arena fighting, but also with a deeper story and more tactical options and more roleplaying between the fights.

It also has enhanced graphics compared to the original game and some new NSCs with their own subquests and interactions. Some of them you might know from the Enhanced Edition of the first part.

The enhanced edition also has some new character classes, skills and spells, but those are only bonusses. If you already own the original game, have some great mods installed and don't like arena-fighting, this enhanced edition might not be worth buying, but for all the others it is clearly a recommendation.
