Best iOS game I've played
This is easily the best game I’ve played on iOS. This series is new to me, as I never played on PC. To new players: 1) This is a fairly complex and time-consuming game. 2) I recommend playing BG1 first, as it was too overwhelming for me starting with BG2. BG1 is simpler and has a nice tutorial for new players, which BG2 doesn’t have. (On the downside, BG1 maps tend to have a lot of “empty” space in their outdoor maps, so using online maps with BG1 are nice in order to see where the interesting points are.) The most frustrating part of this game is the spell system, as there are so many spells to potentially learn and understand. BUT, you really can delve as much or as little into it as you want, as using a fighter heavy groups is totally viable (the Inquisitor and Berserker classes can help in certain ways here), and you can always adjust the difficult setting as easy or as hard as you want at any time. So, if you want a top-quality Role Playing Game and don’t mind some complexity and putting in a little time, I expect you’ll have a great experience playing Baulder’s Gate.
Not a casual game. Worth every penny. Play for years.
If you are reading this having never heard of this game, know that it is considered by many to be the best RPG of all time. Like, in the realm that Dark Side of the Moon and Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band is to rock albums.
It is deep, challenging and complex, and it invented the concept of "your actions determine the ending" and "non-player characters have feelings too" seen on so many games today. It was this game that made Bioware into a serious game developer. (Dragon Age was made to be the "spiritual successor" of this game.)
It originally came out in the late nineties, which may make you think it's too old to be good. It does have some old schoolness, and there has been a lot of innovations since. But the Mona Lisa is from the renaissance. Is it too old to be good? If you want a game that has meat and will give you years of fun, don't pass on the Mona Lisa. Buy this game along with its predecessor Baldur's Gate I.

Update #3: They finally updated the App (and I updated my rating back to where it belongs for this gem, 5 stars)! Thank you, Overhaul Games, for making this game better than what I remembered from the good old days of the PC! Stellar Job! (BTW, where is the BG: EE update???????)
Update #2: Still nothing, yet I added one more star to my rating because, according to the website (as of the 5th of July 2017), an update is "on the way" for BG:EE and BGII: EE (they added in ID:EE as an afterthought, so hopefully there as well), but no ETA. I'll update my rating IF this app gets updated.
This game, with the first and Icewind Dale, are a HUGE disappointment. I paid $10 for all of them so that I can play on my huge screen (Plus sized), only to see this on the description. I've left reviews on all three games with 1 star, and it will remain until the devs update their apps! Oh, they released a new game, also $10, but I'm not spending a dime on it because it won't even be worth it. They will never update it anyway. Totally disrespectful to people who pay money to play a game that isn't even updated to work on any device made on or after 2015. DO NOT BUY THEIR NEWEST APP! They will never update it anyway.
