Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition

 

It's tough to know how to review an enhanced edition. The basic idea is to look at how the new features improve/expand/fix the original and rate that. But what if the original sucked? It is hard to separate the new content from the original game.

The original game is a classic. The “Enhanced Edition” is a near-clone, with some additional content and different bugs. If you haven't played it before, or would like a deep RPG to put on your tablet, this is a good buy. Veterans of the original will...

Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition Review

 

Bloody hell, I'm reviewing Baldur's Gate. Did you know that Bioware's classic RPG came out the same year as Half-Life, Metal Gear Solid, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Resident Evil 2, Grim Fandango, Panzer Dragoon Saga, Unreal and Thief: The Dark...

While Minsc and Boo win most awards, my personal favourite is encountering an annoying mysterious hermit in the forest and having the option to have a massive rant at him about cryptic quest-givers. Laughed my arse off.

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Review

 

Baldur's Gate remains the same enthralling epic that it was in 1998, but bugs and lackluster extras make it tough to call this an enhanced version of the classic.

Still the same old Baldur's Gate ; Huge world and an expansive storyline ; Deep, tactical party-based combat

The improvements and additions are underwhelming ; Too many flaws in the original game are still present ; A number of bugs remain, even after multiple patches

The new content does not do much to improve the overall character of the game. The main saga has been bolstered with three new characters that draw on character classes and skills not available in the original Baldur's Gate. But while the half-orc...

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Review

 

There are hundreds of excellent, classic PC games out there that could be getting remake-type treatment, but for many reasons, those games continue to live on best in the memories of those of us older gamers that remember where today's big-budget AAA...

It pains me to do this because this is a proper revival of Baldur's Gate, without any mucking around in what made it such a great game. BG:EE should get a very high score from me just on that alone, but it's not going to. All of the Infinity Engine...

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition doesn't reinvent the 1998 classic, but it delivers the most polished version of the seminal RPG to date.

The classic returns in HD form on PC. Does it hold the magic of the original, or get lost in translation?

New characters ; New modes ; Classic feel ; Good writing ; Funny dialog

Difficulty make be steep for some ; Looks visually dated ; Matchmaking is not here just yet

It's one of the all-time RPG greats, but how does it play, fourteen years on? Jess takes a look...

The revamped HUD works a treat, and the convenience factor of not having to install a huge number of mods is also a major plus. I recommend it, if you can play it, because Baldur’s Gate is a great game, because it’s more and more becoming “historically...
