One of the most highly-anticipated game releases due this Summer is MacPlay's port of Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn, an epic role-playing game from the masters of the CRPG genre. This title by BioWare racked up enough awards to fill an entire trophy case and sold millions of copies worldwide, and now Mac gamers will get to dungeon-crawl to their heart's delight. To give you a taste of what the future will hold, our own Jay Swartzfeger (creator and maintainer of IMG Network site MacBaldur) has created a detailed preview of this game, accompanied by some smashing screen shots. Here's an excerpt:

Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn is the sequel to arguably the most successful role-playing game ever. Developer BioWare took on a near-impossible task: make a ground-breaking RPG even better. And BioWare did just that, not by simply re-inventing the wheel but by taking a proven formula and making it better. And now, courtesy of MacPlay, Baldur's Gate II will appear on the Macintosh less than a year after the game was announced last October. Baldur's Gate II is also hitting the Mac less than a year after its initial release on the PC. Considering the gargantuan size of the game, MacPlay has pulled off a near-miracle.
For more details on this RPG, be sure and read the rest of the preview.
