What Gamespot Users have to say about Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal

  • User Rating 9.1

    Intense fun, if you know how to stick solid to your role-playing skills! (small spoiler incl.)

    Rated on December 25, 2005 by heatherceana

    This add-on will be mediocre for the hack-n-slashers out there. If you are a die-hard role-player, you will get a real kick out of it! Don't believe me? Try this: Play through this as a Neutral...

    A superb finish to the series!

    Rated on July 15, 2006 by Shrog-III

    Throne of Bhaal is a superb finish to the series and delivers everything anyone would expect from a Baldur's Gate game. Throne of Bhaal gives another great RPG experience for the PC and killing mon...

    Not as good as BGI or II, but for Baldurs Gate fans a real sense of closure in terms of character developement and story

    Rated on September 04, 2009 by baldurs_gate_90

    Unfortunately BGII TOB is very linear, each area in a sense expires once you have completed the main quest. Apart from the eventual conclusion (of which there are many) the game is based on large figh...

    If you liked Baldur's Gate, don't be afraid to buy this.

    In the world of sequel games, it is easy to get bored or unamused by future incantations of the same product. Some games, I wish, would just die. However, to be honest, in this series, I am actually s...

    A fun edition to the original game.

    Rated on July 06, 2006 by TazmanianD

    The Throne of Bhaal is a great follow on to the original Baldur's Gate II. I played it using the same characters I finished BGII with so I got to experience some continuity of characters across the t...

    This is a great game, but not as good as SOA...

    To begin with, the game is good, but not as good at it should have been, it brings some annyoing bugs to the game and the gameplay is stll too easy. if you really want to enjoy the game, download ace...

    A very impressive expansion on an already impressive game

    Rated on May 07, 2008 by GrinningDemon19

    Well I liked Baldur's Gate II a lot and when I saw this expansion I was worried it was going to ruin the story since it had wrapped up so well. But man was I wrong, this expansion does nothing but imp...

    More great turn-based RPG combat

    Rated on December 04, 2004 by dryden555

    This add-on is well-worth playing if you liked BG2: Magic and counter-magic plays a really big role because you will be goiing up against mages that will use "time-stop" and other deadly spells agains...

    Not perfect, but it does a nice job of ending the saga.

    Rated on January 16, 2005 by nobeaner

    WIth this expansion pack, I feel the emphasis was on several things that gamers wanted built into BG2. Higher levels, a more difficult combat, more items and a conclusion to the story. All of these ...

    A wonderful ending for the best RPG series ever to appear on PC, or, indeed, everywhere.<br />

    Rated on August 18, 2006 by FoodThing00

    Unlike most expansions, TOB adds not only a whole bunch of things to the original game, but a whole new story, and a proper ending for the baldurs gate saga. Harder fights, a new character kit, and o...
