Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition reviews and comments

I love this game, even today in my Eyes one of the best AND Besides Dragon Age Origions in my Opinion even with the best RPG although old Zb the graphics are heavily Dusted but that doesn't matter at that time already the Original Versions almost 20 years ago. Buying and playing means part one and 2nd In both Parts multiple passes Mastered so that my Playing Time is regularly safe in this Game alone instead of the displayed 111 std is probably around 300 The world breathes life at every Turn, the characters seem authentic and Not put on, the Quests are still remembered after Years, simply a Blueprint must look like a good RPG, Graphics is secondary if the Game exudes so much Atmosphere

A top title in Video Game History where everything is right. Enormous plenty of Equipment, Sidequests, bosses opponents and Areas to explore. The Focus of the Game, however, is character Development. There are countless Classes that can be combined or changed to human Characters. The Group around the Main Character can be assembled with in-game characters or self-created Characters. Self-created Characters can be exported and reused later. So When you've got the Game through, you can reuse your Character. And if you've played through it more often, past main Characters can also come together for a Best-Off:) For Nostalgists, AD & D fans and oh, it's suitable for anyone who likes Role-playing Games. Absolute Buy recommendation.

Purchased the game on the Mac App Store just to find that the game is not updated with the latest patches. The version that is located hr, 1.2.0 has actually NEVER been updated hr. Thanks to this, I have to live with various bugs when I play, such as characters that disappear and can never be found again, which means that several quests only have to forget if I do not want to break the utility. For some reason, we are relegated to Mac players. It seems to be clean behind the whole, according to the discussions on various forums, but possibly we get a patch around Christmas 2014 according to the scant information provided. Nice that those who have bought the game via Stream and Beamdog for the patches while we who have kpt the game via the Mac App Store has never seen the patch of a patch. Minus rating on this, especially since it damages the gaming experience for us fans who have been looking forward to EE since we first got to talk about it but must live with a nasty version of the game. So, just run this version on the Mac App Store if you can live with the bugs, otherwise you should buy it elsewhere or wait until a new version slpps.
