    Going through Baldur's Gate for the first time is a reminder of what makes a classic RPG -- It’s hard to miss the ways it influenced the genre two decades years ago and how its impact can still be seen in games today, but as a modern experience, it does require a new player to meet in the middle a bit in terms of quality-of-life and the slightly-dated presentation. Despite that, this is the perfect game for a fan of the genre like me to finally play and having an updated version of the game available to a wide new audience is an opportunity for new fans to see exactly why it remains so highly regarded to this day.

    Assuming that you can get past the rather dated graphics, there's really nothing wrong with Baldur's Gate, even two decades after it'sAssuming that you can get past the rather dated graphics, there's really nothing wrong with Baldur's Gate, even two decades after it's original release. The problem with the port to console is simply that the game mechanics favor PC play. I'll credit the developers with creative ways of controlling your party and individual party members, but in the end this game is made to be played on a PC. You need to be able to easily point, click and pause and it just feels clunky with a controller. Save your money and look for this title on Steam. Expand
