IMG Reviews Tales of the Sword Coast
3:35 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story
The Mac port of Tales of the Sword Coast, an expansion to the original Baldur's Gate published for the Mac by GraphSim, took a peculiarly long time to port. Nevertheless, fans of BG are certain to want to find out more about this expansion and what value it adds to the original title. IMG recently published a review for just that purpose:
Tales of the Sword Coast features a multitude of gameplay enhancements, as well as four entirely new areas to explore and conquer. These new areas are chalked full of experience points (thanks to a raise in the experience point cap, you’ll even be able to USE the new points ;-) ) and very challenging. These additional areas are as follows: Ulgoth’s Beard (a small town to the East of Baldur’s Gate), an Ice Cavern full of pesky mages, an Uncharted Island in the sea to the West of Candlekeep and the infamous Durlag’s Tower. These new areas may either be accessed by loading the “Final Save” after defeating Sarevok upon which your party will be taken to Ulgoth’s Beard or by making the journey to Ulgoth’s Beard manually. After TotSC’s areas are completed, Sarevok will have to be dispatched once more due to the fact that TotSC takes place before his demise. Anyone who wants to transfer their character from Baldur’s Gate into the upcoming Baldur’s Gate II will find Tales of the Sword Coast to be a must have. TotSC’s innumerable quests and battles will turn any level 6 wimp into a level 12 dynamo.For more details and screen shots, follow the link below.
