    I just can't help thinking that the "Final Chapter" should have had a little more to it.

    Conclusion to one of the most epic RPG tales ever. Compared to today's graphics the game is obviously very lacking, but like its predecessorConclusion to one of the most epic RPG tales ever. Compared to today's graphics the game is obviously very lacking, but like its predecessor the art itself is beautiful. Gameplay and mechanics is complicated, but like its predecessor the story, world, and basic exploration properties overcome this. Did I like it? Yes! Full Review »

    like the addon for BG1 this addon is great and improves the gaming experience, although Baldurs Gate is already great. The fights are perfectlike the addon for BG1 this addon is great and improves the gaming experience, although Baldurs Gate is already great. The fights are perfect and there a are a lot of good story ideas to make the fights interesting: whether to understand the combat mechanics or the story. Watchers Keep is a first class dungeon and the story about the bhal spawns is epic and great. There is only 1 problem, that became more obvious than in Shadow of Amn: The controlling is bad and you have not enough overview, what is going on in the combat. 10/10. Full Review »

    Too much combat, linearity and not enough exploration, the pacing has gotten worse for the expansion pack. The ending, and story itself, areToo much combat, linearity and not enough exploration, the pacing has gotten worse for the expansion pack. The ending, and story itself, are great though and bring a much needed conclusion to the fate of the children of bhaal, and the new dungeon, shrouded in mystery, Watcher's Keep, is one of the greatest addition to the franchise, much like Durlag's Tower for Baldur's Gate 1.
