Great game with glaring bugs!

Brandon LaRocque

I had reached the fire giant boss, defeated him, and then his heart had disappeared because I clicked through the screen and it disappeared (never to be found again). Spent an hour and a half scouring the map in case I missed something- but no. It was just /gone/. Emailed the devs, received no response, so uninstalled game.

Updated for V2.4.71
My previous glowing review holds up but I reduced a star because the recent update has caused changes.
The game has a new interface which looks pretty good and the character resolutions have been increased. The downside is I have found the game to crash fairly often which is extremely frustrating. The game also seems to run slower which is also disappointing. If the crashing is fixed with subsequent update it is a 5 Star game

This game is simply excellent. It has a huge world, deep combat, a good story and memorable characters.
I played the old PC version several times through and I enjoy the enhanced content. The game really needed more neutral and evil characters because there was no choices to make an evil party. The two new evil characters flesh it out nicely. Another neutral character is nice for variety and a monk is cool because I like monks and female characters needed a romance option that wasn't condescending.

I completely recommend this title IF: you have an iPad (the phone is just too small); you are willing to take some time to learn the game mechanics (it can take a bit to get going); you can accept a RPG where some choices are "wrong" ones (you can be evil but there will be consequences)

Can I ask you to report your crashes at support.baldursgate.com ? The game will get the 2.5 patch after an open beta for the PC version, and any feedback is useful.

So much nostalgia.

Beamdog has yet again done a terrific job in porting this classic game from PC to iPad. There are a few minor issues with touch control response (for example, after loading a quick save I had trouble targeting the shadow dragon before zooming in a bit) but the game otherwise feels like it could have been made for tablets in the first place. I've wanted to get back into these games for years and now Beamdog had given me the opportunity. Thanks guys.

2017 update: new additions from patches have been mostly welcome. The character outlines took some getting used to, but they ultimately made the sprites look much cleaner and more defined against the game’s beautiful backgrounds. The ability to create an entire party outside of single player is also welcome.

One problem I have is with certain balance changes, especially regarding the Cleric/Ranger losing Druid spells past 3rd level. I know that technically in PnP it’s supposed to be this way, but the old way made a C/R a more spell-oriented alternative to a Fighter/Cleric. Now there’s almost no reason to play a C/R over a F/C unless you really like stealth and a racial enemy... but grandmastery and faster level progression tops that in my books, plus the ability to dual-class from Berserker.

I respect that the developers have attempted to bring some balance to the game, but I think they could go further. Certain kits like Shapeshifter, Beast Master and Wizard Slayer are still so much worse than the alternatives that you would only pick one for novelty reasons which is a real shame.

As a last note, I’ve decided that I’m not a huge fan of some of the writing surrounding the new NPCs. The characters are fine, but the stories surrounding them come off more like fan fiction than anything. And the dialogue choices you get don’t fit with the rest of the game thematically... most of them boil down to yes, no(t right now), or a sarcastic over-the-top yes. The humour in the base game was more nuanced (Minsc aside) and these dialogue options are so silly that they’re almost immersion-breaking.

In any case, it’s a modernized BG2. Still gets 5 stars.
