There is very little “enhanced” about the Enhanced Edition of Baldur’s Gate, but that just serves to highlight how well the original game has held up.
This comes as a bit of a surprise to me.
It’s true, I had an unhealthy obsession with the Infinity Engine titles back in the day, but more importantly I remember those games – Baldur’s Gate in particular – as being rather rough around the edges. There were broken quests, awkward pathfinding, and terrible voice acting, not to mention the horrid 2nd Edition D&D rules. As such, all I expected to get out of Baldur’s Gate in 2016 was about 30 minutes of warm, fuzzy nostalgia, followed by 30 minutes of frustration, followed by a quick and decisive uninstall.
What’s really happened is OH GOD I CAN’T STOP.
