Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is a fantasy role-playing game, a remake of the original 1998 release.


The plot follows a player-created character in the world of Forgotten Realms, mainly in the location known as the Sword Coast. Set out on a quest for vengeance and resolving a crisis, the hero finds many friends and enemies, and ultimately, reveals his origin and the circumstances of the game’s introduction.


The player can choose from different classes and in-game races, each with their advantages and disadvantages, and equip the corresponding gear to utilize the character’s skills of choice further. The role-playing system in the game is rich with dialogues and interactions with NPCs, as they often provide valuable information, quests or items. Combat in Baldur’s Gate is made through real-time actions and planning in pause mode, allowing players to create different strategies for more tough encounters.

New in enhanced edition

The remake brought various bugfixes and overhauls for current-gen gaming systems, allowing for bigger screen resolutions and overall higher quality of graphics while retaining the key gameplay features. New NPCs and related quests, as well as an expansion pack, were added to Enhanced Edition, and new difficulty levels were implemented, either for players who only want to immerse in the story, or those who prefer a real challenge to their skills.

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition reviews and comments

The most Important thing in advance: Is BG1 EE WORTH £20for? No! Way too expensive. In the Sale for 5-8 € but it is absolutely worth the Money! In Terms of size alone, BG2 EE WOULD then have to cost €100,000. ;-) You don't ask for a Golf GTI the same as for a Porsche ... BG1 is one of the most important Computer Games, as it virtually revived the RPG genre on its own at the end of the 90s, and without BG1 our Game world would look a little different. For me personally, BG2 + AddOn, TES3: Morrowind and Might & Magic 6 are the best role-playing Games ever. But without BG1, BG2 and probably Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim would not have existed. For the Time, BG1 was certainly one of the best RPGs, but the Story is actually just Average, the Fights rather boring, the Choice of Armor, weapons and Gimmicks manageable. The lively Game world, the Interaction of the Characters, NPCs and Factions are and were outstanding Features and still today with the best there is. About the EE: I like all the Possibilities to adjust the UI, Storymode (have the Stuff through back then) and the Characters are no longer totally pixelated, but now look halfway good. You don't have to zoom completely into it, then of course you can see everything Sch. th out. You definitely have to read the graphics/UI and Gameplay Options through and adapt to your Liking before the game starts. But don't you always do that? Negative Points are the Quest Log and Diary. Only a small Window opens, in which the text is completely uninspired. Really embarrassing! BG1 EE, on Sale until £10, is always worth buying for New Entrants. I bought it because nowadays a clean Installation is just as important to me as the Actually game. Installing an old 90s Game + Mods can end up under Win10 pretty bad. ^^ Have the Honor.

The game itself wonderful and remastered really well, too bad that the Beamdog (home of this title) on its Beamdog Client distributes version 2.0 of the game updated in March 2016, while on the App Store there is only 1.3. I contacted the manufacturer by email asking for explanations, also because I bought Baldurs Gate II on the AppStore, spending almost 40 and asking for Siege of Dragonspear on the AppStore to be unavailable. They replied that they are only available in Beamdog Client on Steam and that, since I need BG I installed if I want to play with them, I have to buy back through Beamdog Client or Steam Baldurs Gate: Enhanced Edition because the old version is available on the App Store! I asked for the reimbursement of the purchases then to Apple but since it does not depend on them and a purchase the different time ago obviously I have not been refunded the 40. A single word to describe the whole: SCAM. Software house really not serious and doesn't care about its customers. I wanted to buy all the saga of the games I grew up with but don't buy anything at all !!!

Hi, a very clear 6-star game! If you like that, that's important, of course. The graphics are old-fashioned, no 3D, no real-time game as is always the case today. But that's what I like. The AD & D control system is mature and well implemented, it's turn-based, you can always pause, it's fun to play and not just hectic. I like to play such complex games in german, that's not the case with the lyrics, but it's understandable, so no problem. How to set german language for that I needed something, also the introduction / tutor, so to speak before the game, did not work very well. Please do not give up at the place, afterwards in the game everything is nice. I play it on a Retina 2013 notebook with an external video. This is also very good in window mode, so that you can check mail on the other screen in between, or write reviews. :) Who wants good 3D graphics, real-time egoshooter will clearly be disappointed, not buy! If you like role-playing games, you know how to calculate a good control system, if the "game joke" content is more important than the graphics will be enthusiastic and should absolutely buy it (!). Many hours of fun for relatively few gold pieces. willy
