A great restoration of one of the finest CRPG experiences to date.,
This review is from: Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition [Online Game Code] (Software Download)
I am writing a review having purchased the game through the Beamdog store. The work Beamdog has put into squashing bugs, polishing features, and adding new content is extraordinary.
I own multiple physical copies of the infinity engine games such as baldur's gate or planescape... Playing BGEE and BG2EE really has smoothed out the games experience, making it perhaps the finest release of eithergame to date. For anyone not wanting to spend time setting up / fighting MODs, this game is a simple installer/launcher and patched up ready to go with widescreen support, extra classes, fresh content, and practically zero bugs (on my play through).
The amount of Content and replay from both the base game, included expansion Throne of bhaal, and new areas and classes... there are no exaggeration hundreds of hours of enjoyment to dig into. This is a game you can revisit in the years to come with a different class, a different party makeup, different choices.
Now is a great time to finally see what everyone has been saying about Baldurs Gate and why you see it topping top 10 / 100s lists of games from all time.
Plus, let us not forget Boo. Boo awaits you!

Besides supporting the developer directly, the good thing about getting the game from Beamdog is that unlike Steam, Beamdog gives Customers the option to install and play the standalone game without having to run a client program in the background.

Exactly, I have purchased all the enhanced editions including the just recently released Icewind dale Enhanced Edition. I feel like these games deserved a good caretaker and so far Beamdog has done a terrific job.
I believe there is a one time online activation on the Beamdog client but that is it. Verify, install, and enjoy!
Plus we could be getting a Baldur's Gate 3 from these fine folks, so support them if that is something you may want.
