I would even go so far as to call this the best video game ever. Computer, console, you name it. Shadows of Amn takes the already high standard set by the original Baldur's Gate and brings it up to a level of near-perfection. Sure, the graphics are dated and probably were when the game came out. But as entries in the Final Fantasy series have so expertly demonstrated, great graphics do not a great game make.

What makes BG, and particularly SoA, so good is the gameplay, which I find to be the most important aspect of a game--followed closely by character and storyline. All three of which are handled wonderfully in this game and interwoven to a degree that one can't help but be drawn in by all three.

Previous experience in any of the D&D universe I believe to be completely unncessary; before I played BG, all I knew vaguely was that it had been a popular board game at one time. Sure, I don't understand all the statistics that go into combat and the armor and weapons and the like, but the computer works in figuring all that out. And I wouldn't consider having played the original BG necessary--anyone with an interest could get into a game like SoA. However, I find it preferable to have played BG first--not only did it give me greater appreciation for the continutation of the story of your main character, but it also helped me in starting out with the gameplay and the controls and so forth--combat in particular was unlike anything I had previously encountered and took a while for me to get a hang of; plus the magic system in this game expands to one so complex and with such potential, I am more than certain I have yet to fully utilize it.

Have you ever pulled out one of those old games that you remember as a classic and while YOU can still fully enjoy the game, OTHER gamers that have become accustomed to the current standard for graphics and production value have no idea how great the game is they're playing? Luckily, this doesn't apply to Baldur's Gate 2 yet. It still has comparable graphics and the story, voice acting and brilliant playing engine still make it better than any RPG on the market right now but that won't hold for long. If you've never had a chance to play this classic RPG, grab it now before it's too late! I've played RPG's since the days of the early Ultima games and Baldur's Gate 2 is probably the best one I've ever played. Now, you do need to be familiar with Dungeons & Dragons. So if you don't know how the classic D&D system works, you may not find Baldur's Gate 2 as appealing as I did. It also uses the older D&D ruleset which is good or bad depending on which one you prefer. Ever since playing (and replaying) this title, in my mind it has set the bar for RPG's and I compare all RPG's since to Baldur's Gate 2. The expansion isn't as great as the game itself but you can't go wrong buying the collection edition which includes both. Also, if you plan on playing the first Baldur's Gate, I'd recommend you play it first because it begins the story that concludes in this game. But you don't need to play the first game to understand what is going on in the sequel because it feels like it's own story. Baldur's Gate 2: The Collection is cheaper than current titles and a better play. If you're and RPG fan that hasn't tried this game, buy it now, you'll thank me later.

Baldur's Gate 2 (plus Throne of Bhaal) is hands down the best RPG I've ever played. How in the world did I ever miss this one? It must be over 5 years old now, and I've been gaming on the PC for over 10 years. All I can say is shame on me!! I used to wonder how people could get involved with RPG's that consist of tiny action sprites and a static overhead "camera" view. Now I know -- do I ever!

Note that this game is an absolute killer if you have any kind of life. I would sit down after dinner just to play for a couple of hours and the next thing I'd know the clock would show 3:30 AM (with a workday coming up). Make sure you eat and do other "chores" -- like taking a shower -- BEFORE you sit down to play.

I know absolutely nothing (and don't really care) about D&D rules (2nd version vs the 3rd, etc.), but it doesn't matter. Create a character that appeals to you and just role play. As you become more comfortable with the system, go for a dual class character.

Your party of 5 NPC's quickly become like old friends with their own opinions, romances, squabbles, likes, dislikes, etc. If they are strongly at odds with your decisions or if your reputation is too low/high, they will complain often (very annoying) and even leave the party. Many of the walkthroughs I've seen seem to stress the hack and slash aspect of this game, but I feel the character interaction is equally if not more important. It is what truly sets this game apart from the others (this game is the beginning of the Bioware "touch" which you can see in later games like KOTOR 1). And if you can choose one of three very different female NPC's to romance, why not go for it? Most fun of all is to have a party composed of people with different alignments (good, neutral and evil).
