Over the past two weeks, IMG's Michael Phillips has been playing MacPlay's recently released epic strategy game, Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn day and night in preparation of writing an extensive review of the game. Spanning a whopping 4 CD's, Baldur's Gate II has "changed me profoundly", according to Phillips. Here's a clip from the review:

Baldur’s Gate II is far less linear than the original, making its replay value extremely high. Yes, major points in the game, such as chapter endings may be the same every time, but there are several different ways to reach said points. For example, one can either seek help from the Shadow Thieves or align with a mysterious rival guild in order to find Irenicus & Imoen. Either way, Irenicus & Imoen will be found in order to advance the game’s plot, yet the manner in which they are found can vary dramatically. This makes multiplayer Baldur’s Gate II via GameRanger far more relevant than its predecessor, playing the game online with friends doesn’t mean that you can’t experience something totally separate from finishing a singleplayer campaign.
Check out Phillips' full review by following the link below. Phillips has also posted a Baldur's Gate II Top Ten entitled "Top Ten Signs that Baldur’s Gate II is Making You Loopy", a light hearted top ten list.

And don't forget, if you're a MacGames CD subscriber, you can order Baldur's Gate II for just $39.
