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. However, his plans are interrupted when a group of thieves from the powerful local thieves' guild breaks into his lair.

Did You Know?


Ironically, although the game is called Baldur's Gate II, the player never gets to visit the city of Baldur's Gate itself at any point of this lengthy game. See more »


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.

best game ever
2 June 2006 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Baldurs Gate 2 has to be the best game ever made. It has such depth and range you can easily play it over and over again without getting bored. It has a simple, easy to use interface so that anyone can pick up and start playing very quickly. What really attracts me - and, I think, most fans - is the detail of character in the people you meet, particularly the NPC's (people who can join your party). There are tons of banters and even several romantic options. I just haven't seen these features in any other game. Yes, it helps if you have played Dungeons and Dragons before (I played for about 15 years) but it isn't necessary. There is enough information supplied in the manual and in game for anyone to get into it. The only problem with this game is that it is so addictive, you'll find yourself ignoring or putting off all kind of things just so you can play the game and find out what happens next. And the game does take a long time to play. Depending on how many side-quests you do and how often you play, it'll easily keep you entertained for weeks, if not months. It definitely helps that there are heaps of dedicated fans who write add-ons or tweaks to the game (called mods) available free to download, but even without them, the basic game itself with keep you enthralled. If you enjoy games with role-playing, character interaction and detailed worlds you'll love Baldurs Gate 2.
