  • Review Score:9.3

    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 many people didn't wa... Read Full Review

    Sibling rivalry.

    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 fan, but this game i... Read Full Review
