This purchase was a disappointment. There are FAR too many bugs in this release, and in fact, the original release of Baldur's Gate II had far fewer bugs (BGII veteran here; I've been playing this game since 2001 and have never taken a year off). I was very pleased with all the enhancements which make this game look so much nicer on newer systems, but between the sheer number of bugs and the weak voice-acting of the new NPCs (Hexxat's voice was PITIFUL to the point where I couldn't keep her in my party) I just can't say this release is worth spending money on, period. Download the latest patch, get a widescreen mod and the Baldur's Gate II Fixpack from Giberlings 3 and just play the original release. Don't waste your time with this version.

11 months and no patches to address a lot of the serious issues that it introduced (especially in the case of the games multiplayer). For the time being I would recommend you buy BG2 from elsewhere (gog perhaps) and just mod it (search for the bg2 fixpack on G3). It is cheaper and less buggy.

Do you like RPGs? Story? Dungeons? Dragons? Miniature Giant Space Hamsters? If you said yes to any of these things. Buy this game. It's on a lot of people's best game of all time lists. I play it again at least one a year. Just do it. Or buy it on gog.com. DOOO EEEET
