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

Aerie: I have a question for you, Imoen... you have the taint of Bhaal within you? Does this mean you will turn into the Slayer as well?
Imoen: I certainly hope not. I... I've been thinking more and more lately about that, myself, though.
Aerie: It must be an awful feeling. I cannot imagine how Protagonist deals with it.
Imoen: Yeah... s/he's been dealing with it longer, too. Sometimes, when it's quiet... I can hear the taint in my heart whispering to me. It says awful things and I almost want to scream to shut them out.

A great computer game (not a movie)
23 April 2001 | by (Bay Area, CA USA) – See all my reviews

Baldur's Gate II is a great computer game. One of the last great games to use "sprites" and "tile sets" instead of "3D objects" with bit-map surfaces. This is NOT a movie. It is a PC game. A very good PC game. It won many awards for computer games.

The voice acting by David Warner (as the main bad guy) was very good. The sound-effects were great. The visual art was stunning in many places (especially the underwater city, the underground city of the Drow, and the temple district of the main city).
