    A genuinely good CRPG which brings the Forgotten Realms to life.

    Baldur's Gate (BG) by Interplay has finally been released after what seems like an eternity in development. Judging from the fact that most stores sold out the day they received it, it seems a great m...

    Quantity meets quality in Baldur's Gate.

    Rated on September 17, 2008 by leapfrog91

    Sibling rivalry.

    Rated on December 31, 2005 by differentiation

    This was my 1st Bioware game, and they have won me over after playing this. They have proven themselves to be one of the leading RPG makers in the market, as can be seen with KOTOR. I was never a D&D ...

    Amazing RPG

    Rated on May 02, 2008 by GrinningDemon19

    This was the first big RPG I got for my computer 10 years ago and I still play it! It follows the D&D rules pretty closely and works perfectly if you can't get a real life group together or they don't...
