Storyline

In this expansion pack to "Baldur's Gate II - Shadows of Amn", the main character, known as "Gorion's Ward", and his or her party are informed that the five most powerful children of the evil dead god Bhaal have joined and raised an army to hunt down all of their remaining Bhallspawn siblings, kill them and conquer the world through carnage in order to claim their father's infamous throne in the underworld as well as his power and his sinister title of Lord of Murder. In this final adventure of Gorion's Ward, three new chapters are added to the previous game. There are no new romance options and there's only one new potential companion available, although it's highly surprising who this person is. Another unusual element is that this character's alignment can be changed if properly influenced by the player. Gorion's Ward also creates a pocket dimension with his/her mind, where he/she must pass several challenges to determine his or her definite path. Several unique items and weapons ...

Trivia

The mystery behind the purpose of Golden Pantaloons, a popular infamous seemingly-useless unique item from Baldur's Gate 1, is finally reveled here. However, in order to find out what this item does, the player must keep it in his or her inventory throughout BG 1, import his or her main character into Baldur's Gate 2, pick the item up along with the rest of his/her BG 1 inventory in Irenicus' Dungeon, be evil towards Welther during the Buried Alive quest in BG 2, use those turned to stone in the Throne of Bhaal expansion and eventually visit Amkethran.

The End is Here - There can be only one!
10 October 2006 | by mcniven97See all my reviews

Firstly I had better say that i have not played the original Baldur's Gate, only it's sequel Shadows of Amn and this expansion.

I was pleased to see that a new area is added to the conventional BG2 map as well as the expansion's map. This is Watchers Keep, where Helmites struggle to contain an ancient Evil sealed away by the god's themselves... This Dungeon was totally that, full of puzzles and cool sub-missions much like Spellhold... After that I moved on to the Expansion. I was pleased.

The numbers of the Bhaal spawn thin and the powerful have survived, hunting down all their blood brothers. There are now seven remaining contenders for the Throne of Bhaal. You and your sister Imoen are now marked for death by the five others. Once again, like it or not, Hero will be forced to act out of survival (or maniacal glee), It will never be over until there are no others.

But if peace is earned at last what of your legacy? Do the realms need a new God of Murder? Although somewhat more linear in story, and a little constricting in comparison to BG2's main quest I found it an appropriate pace for the weaving together of the loose ends of the Saga. There is still good humor spread throughout and more than a few breathtakingly powerful new items and weapons. As you near the end of this quest your character approaches mortal god-hood as levels 20+ bestow you with unbelievable powers, to expand your BG2 character or start from scratch.

Great stuff, but 2D graphics are a little disappointing in todays light. Its a Pity the 3D descendants of this series, Neverwinter etc, never really hit the mark like this one. Great Finale for a Great Tale.

Get it, its not that long (or expensive), you wont lose any friends or jobs in the time it takes to finish.
