    Some minor content additions take the form of side quests and a barely expanded map. Not enough to make it great.

    Reviewer's Tilt: The Tales of the Sword Coast expansion pack, while innovative in that it successfully introduces the concept of expansion packs (previous attempts for other pc rpg's failed miserably...

    Gameplay: As the original Gamespot review mentions, this expansion does not build on the original storyline from Baldur's Gate I. In fact, the quests in Tales of the Swordcoast, happen sometime bef...

    I still think this is one of the best rpgs ever. When is Baldur's Gate 3 comming out anyway??

    Rated on November 12, 2006 by fwcosta

    I believe that many rpgs nowadays should try to learn some things from this game, that was one of the best I have played so far. Even being quite old, I still like to play it from time to time. Today,...

    A fun filled bonus adventure for one of the best D&D games of all time.

    Rated on April 01, 2006 by Advocate

    While it did not add any new depth to the story of Balders Gate, it is a highly anticipated, and much apprecaited expansion to the game. I had to wait a while before I could get this addition to Bald...

    Tales of the Sword Coast just doesn't add anything significant enough to Baldur's Gate to make it a must have.

    Rated on November 17, 2005 by Talonfire

    Baldur's Gate was a great game and it brought a dying genre back on top; so screwing up an expansion to this game should be impossible right? Think again. Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast d...

    good part of a greater whole

    Rated on December 11, 2005 by hammml8

    I must preface this review by saying that I look at Baldur's Gate as one game that spans the original, its expansion, Shadows of Amn and its expansion. So I'm looking at this game as a part of the wh...

    Beard-stroking expansion to Baldur’s Gate.

    Rated on January 28, 2007 by totalgridlock

    Gameplay: 9/10 This expansion adds several new aspects to Baldur’s Gate. First, we have a few new areas to explore, including a massive and challenging dungeon that on its own could take a couple o...
