Hardcore Gamer has posted a new review of Overhaul Games' Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition. The game includes the original Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn and the Throne of Bhaal expansion, as well as four new party members, a variety of new areas to explore, the new Black Pits 2: Gladiators of Thay arena combat adventure, and a host of bug fixes and performance improvements.

From the review:

The amount of content of Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition is absolutely staggering. Not only do you get the main Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn, but also the expansion packs, Throne of Bhaal and combat centric Black Pits 2: Gladiators of Thay along with four new NPC characters that you can recruit to your party. Just the main game alone has hours upon hours of real actual gameplay, with a meaty and epic main quest and side quests that seem to never end. The story is as epic and memorable, with NPC driven dialogue filling in the lulls with either humorous banter or serious relationship building inquiries. The inner party dialogue is of course dependent on who you have in your party, which can vary quite a bit because there are so many to choose from giving Baldur’s Gate II a ridiculous level of replay value.
