"PC RPG Classic."
5 stars"

I've had Baldur's gate 2 and its expansion for a while now. and decided to play through the game again.

Baldur's gate is nothing short of amazing. It presents an interesting storyline of high adventure, dealing with issues such as nasty dragons, strange murders in a town, a guild war, and even helping out a ‘fish’ king. Combat is fun, challenging and reasonably strategic. you can optionally tune the game to be turn based so you can spend as much time as you need to plan out attacks, reposition your party members, or even just to look at that new item you picked up a monster kill before :D This is all presented in a very detailed pre-rendered 2d world, which even today looks reasonably good. All of this comes together to build a level of immersion that a lot of RPG games since have failed to capture. In Total, both of the Baldur's gate and expansions should provide you with over 300 hours of top quality RPG fun. This is seriously Bioware in their element.

While this game is 10-odd years old, fear not about the game not running on modern hardware/operating systems. Baldur's gate 2 at least runs perfectly on Vista 64bit. There are modes to fix up how the game looks in widescreen mode, a mod to run Baldur's gate 1 on Baldur's gate 2 modified game engine. Ability to push the screen res up, etc.

"Where it all began"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Amazingly it still runs on Windows 7 just fine.

Baldur's Gate 1 and 2 have special places in my heart. I remember playing them when I was just a kid, and although I couldn't understand much of the story, the game itself wasn't too painful to wrap my head around and just dive in and have fun.

If I had my choice, when I have kids they'll be raised on games from the good old days when games weren't afraid to be complex, deep, and DIFFICULT. Be warned that the first few character levels of Baldur's Gate are tough, since almost everything other than Kobolds will make lunchmeat out of you. Have patience though, and you'll be rewarded with a big world to explore and many secrets to discover, in both games.

"Still one of the best examples of a great RPG"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Baldur's Gate 1 and 2 are classic D&D videogames. The graphics may seem outdated now but they're not awful to look at and the story is certainly worth it.

Baldur's Gate 1 will let you go virtually anywhere, however that doesn't mean you'll survive going into areas where you shouldn't be. It generally involves a fair amount of running round trying to level up or dragging things back to sell but there are some mods available online that can change things a little or even make the silent companions a little more chatty. You don't have to play Baldur's Gate 1 to understand what is happening in Baldur's Gate 2, but it certainly helps.

Baldur's Gate 2 on the other hand is a lot less tedious in terms of running back and forth.The plot will drag you in, the companions will talk to your character and each other, and you have a variety of interesting places to explore. The Baldur's Gate 2 community is still thriving years after the game was released because of all the fan made mods available for this game. You'll be able to find tons that will allow you to replay this game over and over and over again.

It may be old, but it has aged well and with both the main games and expansions all in one relatively cheap bundle this is a purchase you shouldn't regret.

Description

This great value collection includes both Baldur's Gate I and II and their expansion packs.

Baldur's Gate

Baldur's Gate takes you back to the Forgotten Realms campaign setting on a visually dazzling role-playing adventure, one that brings to life the grand tradition of the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game through cutting edge art and technology. Immerse yourself in this quintessential medieval fantasy world, where nations hang in the balance of your actions, dark prophecies test your resolve, and heroic dreams can be fulfilled at last.

Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Swordscoast
Continue your travels on the Sword Coast with the next set of adventurers in the award-winning Baldur's Gate role-playing game series. Legends of treasures lost and monsters to be defeated abound in the region. Almost all have at least some basis in truth. Are you up to the task?

Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn
Baldur's Gate II expands the Baldur's Gate world by bringing you a new set of adventures set in the nation of Amn. Baldur's Gate II has a large central, nonlinear plotline which is broken down into 7-8 chapters, with lots of subquests and small adventures thrown in for variety. The number of item recovery type quests has been greatly diminished and there are be more class- and alignment-specific quests.

Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal
Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal greatly extends the Baldur's Gate II experience, with approximately 40 hours of additional adventures. Explore the lands of Tethyr as an epic conflict wreaks devastation on a scale never before seen in the Forgotten Realms campaign world
