Storyline

He needs the ward for his diabolical experiment that'll give him the power he needs to enact his revenge. He's also highly interested in Imoen's powers for some reason.

One of the Best RPG ever !!!
27 March 2004 | by (europe) – See all my reviews

BG II is Great. BG I was a monument, but BG II is visually more impressive. The Hero(in) of the first VG is kidnapped by an evil wizard ( Jon Irenicus ) and begin a quest to stop him and save his ( her ) friend Imoen, but the journey may turn him to the dark side. The universe is huge and well done and there are some twist ( even if they are not as huge and unexpected as those of the first BG ) The graphics are beautiful, especially the elves city and the voices are simply perfect and the interactions between the characters are great. The choices are unlimited, leading to another end each time that you play in BG II. BG II is one of the best RPG ever ( I can't really decide if it or BG I is the best )
