Top Customer Reviews
The gameplay is fun but as I said, the graphics are very dated, so it may not be a good choice for people who like a lot of modern, visual polish on their games.
For my part, I haven't experienced any of the game crashes or glitches that other reviews have described, but I haven't experienced any enhanced gameplay either.
One of the most irritating things I remember about both BG titles was the looting. You HAD to click on every enemy to loot that 1 gold coin. Best practice in modern games is to auto loot gold from any enemy in the nearby area. That's one feature that should have been easily implemented, but wasn't. In fact, except that the game plays on my windows 8 pc, I don't really see any improvements at all to what the original game was.
For spending good money on a game I already played, I expected a bit more effort into making it more playable. I realized the effort that went into making the port onto modern PCs, but a few gameplay improvements would have been nice.
I tried the Black Pits and liked it so much I ended up completing it before getting very far into the Original campaign. I really like the new interface with the BG II updates. The spell list from BG II is included and the spells now function the same in both. The PC kits from BG II were also backfitted and now you can take a character with one of those nice kits all the way through. The game also includes all the elements from Tales of the Swordcoast. Plus there are some new recruitable NPCs that IMHO are pretty interesting and add more depth to your party. Don't let reviews of the first release dissuade you from picking this up. The one you purchase now works well and is everything I hoped it would be.
One of the Best Games...Ever! ...made better!
Still just as fun as I remember, but made more so with BG2 character options. Good times, good memories, and still a great game. Well worth it when on-sale. Not so sure about full price. The advanced screen size for new monitors is a plus, but the old limitations for routers -- cannot support 2ppl behind a firewall sucks! Needed to use hamachi to to a v-network and use TCP/IP to make the connection work. If you're all solo ppl behind your own routers, then no worries. NWN was the first to eliminate that problem. Also sucks that a MAC user purchased through Apple App store cannot use Steam for chat unless you buy a game (used G+ Hangout to solve this one). But that's a Steam problem, not BG. Great game for a sale price. Had a few quicksave glitches, but so far, so good. Have not tried any mods yet. Great potential there (pack mule = savior of inventory boredom!), but with all this change, if it's full of bugs, it'll be a buzz kill. Will update if it turns ugly.
The story is fantastic.
