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. However, his plans are interrupted when a group of thieves from the powerful local thieves' guild breaks into his lair. A bloody and highly destructive fight ensues between them and Irenicus and his creatures. When the fighting breaks out into the streets, the Cowled Wizards, an influential secretive group...

Story is unmatched!
5 November 2007 | by mangudai2007See all my reviews

If you get past the game's age and outdated graphics, here's what is in store for you...

BG is role-playing at it's best! What makes the game special for me is the story - one of the best story lines ever as you play through. It builds up perfectly, from humble beginnings in BG1 having trouble battling one enemy to the stage of slicing and dicing (or incinerating) mass armies in the Throne of Bhaal expansion (and having your enemies rightly fear you especially in the dialogue)...

The game itself is a rich world full of interesting characters some that follow you others that serve other purposes. With the great storyline, voice acting included and superb music (which builds up from humble beginnings to epic struggles worthy for a fight against a dragon), this game really defines the word 'epic'...

I've watched a lot of movies, played many games including Neverwinter (the successor to this series) but the story of Baldur's Gate is truly epic, and it sticks with ya. It involves you deeply; you're not just a mercenary on the side saving the world, you are saving the world from something else which you will find out! The ending of this game is also very impressive. Every time I play it through, the hard to describe feeling of 'finality' is never surpassed by any other game/movie/book I've played, watched or read...

In the end I just wish one day those guys at Bioware would make a 3D game that surpasses the feats that BGI/II accomplished as a 2D game. Just a fool's hope...
