Baldur’s Gate 3 is a dream come true for old-school fans of the Dungeons & Dragons tabletop franchise, and it reinvigorates the entire sub-genre. It’s long, bold, and full of exploration and worth every second of your time.
this is the greatest rpg i have ever played. i am 65 hours in, and im not even close to bored. a must play for any rpg fan. the combat and gameplay is spectacular and groundbreaking, incredibly revolutionary. the story and characters are incredible, and the side quests are not treated like chores with boring stories you dont give a **** about (cough cough skyrim). the dialogue heavily effects the world and characters around you, and there are so many features that really let you carve out your own unique playstyle. leveling up is incredibly satisfying, and i really cant shill this game enough.
Baldur’s Gate 3 is a watershed moment for RPGs and gaming. It represents one of the closest approximations of true freedom, creativity, and player choice available, evolving concepts and mechanics that have been tinkered with for decades. Using Dungeons & Dragons as its catalyst, Larian has honored the past and forged a new future for a genre that has allowed increased agency for players to put their thoughts, feelings, hopes, and wants inside of a digital realm and live.
Baldur's Gate 3 is the most successful and authentic take on D&D in the tabletop franchise's 50-year history. Its complexity and size might be daunting for novices, but the breadth and depth of Baldur's Gate 3's world make this a once-in-a-generation achievement.
Baldur's Gate 3 is an exceptionally well-written game with breathtaking visuals and charming NPCs. The game's combat is creative and allows all sorts of maneuvers that you can think of. Larian Studios's CRPG shows that the genre can be accessible and brings the best out of Dungeons & Dragons: a universe of peculiar beings that unite under a greater good.
Baldur's Gate 3 is an outstanding and complete RPG. All of its elements work brilliantly and mesh together to create something unique. Calling this game a continuation of the series may be a bit controversial, but it doesn't change the fact that this game is as close to a masterpiece as it gets. Many things are executed much better than in the first two installments, and we finally feel that we have a real impact on the world and events. It's like taking part in the best session of a tabletop RPG.
I’m still conflicted with how I feel about Baldur’s Gate III, and I probably will be for a while. While it carries on the legacy of perhaps one of the most influential CRPGs of all time, I’m not sure if it’s better than the first two games that preceded it. It is a different story by a different team and, while it’s deeply connected to those first two games, it is a promising start to more new adventures set in a familiar world that I’ve always loved.
Yes, there are still a couple of bugs / glitches (in my current playthrough, Wyll was nowhere to be found after the initial scene at the Druids grove).
But considering the overall scope, I can't think of anything they could have done better.
Baldur's Gate 3 is an ambitious endeavor that dazzles with its detailed world and deep narrative, true to its Dungeons & Dragons roots. While the game excels in storytelling and stunning graphics, it's marred by occasional bugs and a steep learning curve, particularly in its strategic, turn-based combat. These issues, coupled with pacing inconsistencies, hold it back from being a masterpiece. Nonetheless, for fans of the genre willing to navigate its complexities and overlook its flaws, Baldur's Gate 3 offers a rich and rewarding RPG experience, making it deserving of a solid 7 or 8 out of 10
I'm a true RPG fan, played a lot of them in my old days. And I can say that BG3 is a good game, but not as good as I imagined it. The building system is imbalanced, a random system devalues all your skill leveling, a lot of inconsistencies in the plot, lack of reactivities. I love Larian's other games but I was a bit disappointed with this one
