Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Macworld UK has posted a new review of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition from Overhaul Games and Beamdog. An updated version of Bioware's fantasy role playing game set in the Forgotten Realms, the game features an enhanced version of the Infinity Engine, the Tales of the Sword Coast expansion pack, new adventures, new party members, and new character kits.

The graphics may be dated, and the gameís interface isnít exactly streamlined, but the complex storyline and eccentric cast of supporting characters are still very enjoyable and can provide many hours of enjoyable monster-bashing.

You start off by creating your character, choosing from races such as human, elf and half-orc, and training as a warrior, wizard, rogue or priest. Then itís time to head off to the city of Baldurís Gate to track down the mercenaries who attacked your home town Ė and also to confront a powerful and mysterious figure from your past.

The game is huge, covering dozens of locations around the area known as the Sword Coast, and it often seems like there are people just queuing up in the local tavern to offer you additional quests and rewards in return for your help. You can also recruit additional characters to join you in your adventuring party, and these characters often come with storylines and quests of their own that add to the fun and help to create a greater sense of involvement in the game.
