Storyline

Gorion's ward, the protagonist of the first Baldur's Gate game, is captured along with his/her party (that consists by default of thief/mage and ward's best friend Imoen, half-elf fighter and druid Jaheira and her beloved husband Khalid, who were friends with the late Gorion, amusing heroic not-completely-sane fighter Minsc and his imaginary deadly pet hamster Boo and Minsc's beloved mage wife Dynaheir) by Jon Irenicus, an incredibly powerful amoral sadistic wizard hellbent on revenge of initially undisclosed nature. 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.

Quotes

Jaheira: So, where to now, fearless leader?
Protagonist: Hmm, I don't rightly know. I'm taking suggestions.
Jaheira: I would suggest that you get moving and decide on a plan. And never again say something like "don't rightly know." You sound like you were dropped as a child. Or kicked.

it deserves its awards

An excellent game. You'll laugh, you'll cry when you have to do the same part 10 times before you make it out alive. Incredible game, easy to get lost in- maybe a little to easy. The graphics are nice, especially at the higher resolutions. Once again the voice acting is great, and you'll grow to love your traveling companions. An odd addition is that this time they talk a lot more, and some tend to have issues at different times that they want to discuss with you. Very detailed environments, whether it's the beautiful landscapes or the intricate cities. The sound is awesome. People always ask what movie I'm watching. One warning though - keep a clock nearby if time is an issue, because hours can disappear faster than minutes while playing.
