Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition
Baldur's GateReleased 14 years ago, for many it's a game better known for its illustrious legacy, setting the template for over a decade's worth of RPGs: from the fractured narrative of Mass Effect, to the complex characters strewn across Dragon Age: Origins. Simply put, with Baldur's Gate, Bio Ware shaped fantasy gaming as we know it. And now it's back: resurrected and reinvigorated for the modern gamer, this aging jewel in Bio Ware's crown returns with an all-new enhanced edition on Mac, PC and, most interestingly, iPad. The enhanced edition isn't so much a remake as a revamp, introducing a swathe of graphical enhancements, performance tweaks and adjustments to the gameplay for its PC and Mac releases. But with the iPad, developers took advantage of the tablet's touch-screen to achieve something altogether different. Indeed, for a game several years older than the average Call Of Duty player, the strategic isometric gameplay feels startlingly contemporary, with quasi turn-based combat and a comprehensive levelling-up system. It's paired with a narrative as expansive as the genre's best; a journey of self-discovery and birthright set within Dungeons' land of the Forgotten Realms. But what differentiates the game from the majority of its dwarfs-and-all peers is its cast of beguiling heroes and villains. Six companions accompany the protagonist on his quest – accrued across multiple chance encounters – each with agendas, disparate motivations and fascinating psyches.
