It's not easy being a child of a god. In Baldur's Gate 2: Shadow of Amn, your character quickly comes to this conclusion after being imprisoned and tortured by a wizard with an unhealthy interest in your parentage. So begins this ambitious RPG based on the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game. Shadow of Amn develops the plot lines, characters and events introduced in the first game into a mature, genuinely interesting fantasy tale and you will be pleasantly surprised by Shadow of Amn's bold story arcs. Baldur's Gate served as a proving ground for the refined game mechanics evident in Shadow of Amn. Now major events are afoot, and the character's choices have a real impact on the universe of the Forgotten Realms.
The game's artificial intelligence has been vastly improved, and the player has many more choices for NPC AI scripts and party communication. Keeping with Shadow of Amn's more mature theme, the party interaction even goes so far as to include possible love interests for your character.
This double pack also includes the BG2 expansion pack, Throne of Bhaal. There are hordes more monsters to fight, a couple of new classes and kits to explore (the Wild Mage, for example), new treasures and artefacts, new quests and new dungeons and the ability to reach an unprecedented Level 40. Why wouldn't you want to meet strange new creatures, unleash strange new spells and listen to even more bizarre voice acting from the lovable Minsc? But the real reason to get this is to see the massive story finally reach a conclusion. There won't be a Baldur's Gate III and Throne of Bhaal lets you see the fate of the character that began as Gorion's young ward so many years ago in the original Baldur's Gate.
A strong plot backed by strong technology makes Baldur's Gate 2 and the Throne of Bhaal expansion stand out as one of the best RPGs you'll ever play. Fans of the AD&D game will love the classic AD&D feel, and fans of the popular Forgotten Realms setting will delight in the people, places and politics found here.--Kelly Harrode

The sheer 'open-endedness' of this game makes it possible to go anywhere, do anything and do it when you want to. It allows for character developement, opportunites to explore and much more. It really makes you value your characters simulated life. The oppourtunites are endless
I have spent so many hours playing this game and exploring and I am still to find and do everything in this game. Don't feel like doing a quest? Then don't! Go do something elses instead! Like I said, endless opportunities.
All in all I think this is a shining example of how to do something and do it right.
You have a lot of control over your party, you can create them all yourself or just create one and pick up NPCs along the way.
The different NPCs and different character options available are what give it it's replayability.
I've completed it 3 times I think this speaks volumes.
This is one of the few games that has kept me up til 3am saying "I'll just see what comes next".
Lots of items to find, lots of development and lots of side quests. It is very "open" leaving you to decide what to do and where to go. It gives you weeks worth of gameplay and so is well worth the money.
I'm getting misty eyed at the thought, what a game!.
Become the most powerful mage ever with terrible death magic that can wipe out an entire room of umberhulks in one utterance or the most skillful thief who sees life as one huge chance to get filthy rich , this game allows it all , your ability to control a group of six adventurs allows you to balance the groups strengths and weaknesses with a mix of pure dwarfen strength and elfish magic your group can take on anything !! which is just as well as the level and type of creature's waiting for your merry band is so varied and vile that even a group at the end of the quest and all on the top few levels can still get ripped apart if you fail to prepair. If hack and slash is your thing forget this game but if you love ADD on paper and want to take time to plan battles through using core ADD rules and magic you could not find a better gamming experince, the nonlinear nature of this game , the vast number of quests the ability to change your group make this a game for all time .
Prepare for loss of sleep , sore eyes and a numb bum this ones going to get hold of you and it won't let go!!.
The gaming system works amazing, being advanced D&D, which in my opinion is a far more interesting variation that the 3rd edition used in NWN and even KOTOR. Allowing a multitude of interesting characters, nowhere near as versitile as 3rd, but again... interesting. All the combat is very tactical, the game for wonderful, enjoyable combat, you can control and manage 6 characters including warriors, mages, thieves and more. The greater spells are truly wonderful(you can stop time!) There is a large variety of monsters from beholders, vampires and liches to dragons.
The best part, truly, is the story. I have never played a game with a better story than this. It is personal, emotional, gripping and possible romances with female party members are interesting and emotional. Throughout 10 chapters you are taken along the great story, the game is truly massive, taking a very long time to complete, much longer than KOTOR, NWN and Deus Ex all combined.
The voice acting is superb, including people like Kath Sourcie(Rugrats & LOADSA others), Jim Cummings (again, loadsa things) and more people who you would be suprised to find out that you have heard of them.
The graphics and sound(despite being old) are very detailed, fitting and great, you will enjoy them in addition to all these features.
Go ahead, play it, and when you have finished it several weeks later, you may like it just as much as I did.
