Brilliant compilation, one of the best games of all time IMHO, for a decent price (£8.99 delivered). Very low recommended specs, so should work on most systems.

Summary:

The Baldur's Gate series brought many technical advancements over computer-based role-playing games of the past. The player's party can have up to six members, either created by the player or NPCs (computer controlled characters) recruited by the protagonist from the game world. Numerous side quests and plot twists are associated with particular NPCs and can be activated if they are found in the player's party. Through extensive, context-dependent dialogue, many characters inside and outside the player's party are fleshed out and given an added level of complexity.

In 1999, Baldur's Gate won the Origins Award for Best Role playing Computer Game of 1998, and in 2000, Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast won Best Role playing Computer Game of 1999. Baldur's Gate has also been often compared to Diablo (an action RPG), perhaps for similarities in dungeon-crawling and the isometric view, but is much more story driven with less hack and slash.

Gamespot ratings:
Baldur's Gate - 9.2
Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Swordscoast (extension) - 8.1
Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn - 9.2
Baldurs Gate II: Throne of Bhaal (extension) - 8.7

Forgot to post in here when I meant to a few days ago...

Ordered it after seeing the recommendation you posted in my thread. Thanks for getting me started on my quest to purchase old PC gaming gems on the cheap. :thumbsup:

These and Elder Scrolls III will be my first PC type RPG, I've only ever played the Japanese kind before...I hope I can adjust to any differences!

Baldur's Gate II is one of the best games ever released on the PC (imho). If you like RPG's at all, you will love it. Its one of the few RPG's i've ever played where the characters have depth.

Old games are great, they didn't used to rely on graphics as many modern games do.

There's no indication of how long the offer will last, try emailing them. Post a reply if you get a response.

Character depth? I was thinking PC RPGs focused more on the gameplay side, on a character you create... :?

I feel that's true for every game. They don't make them like they used to...

PS1 RPGs made me fall in love with the various stories, characters and worlds, I didn't care too much about the graphical side things. Final Fantasy X-2 is the perfect example of what's gone wrong with Japanese RPGs since then.

Skies of Arcadia, Suikoden V and Dragon Quest VIII - Those are the only 3 RPGs I consider truly excellent since the PS1 days.

they mostly do. thats what makes BG2 so good. All the characters you find along the way have real personalities. If you don't pick wisely you can have various character members falling out with each other and even leaving the party over what another member has said to them. The woman can fall out with each other over jealousy if you flirt with 1 of them too much. No doubt all scripted but it doesn't feel that way at all. Top game!

Who would've thought that a computer game can teach people valuable life lessons like this example :)

i spent hours and hours on BG1, i think it has to be one of my favourite games, along with HL1 and monkey island 1. I don't seem to have an eye for good graphics, in fact i tend to dislike good graphics, as while its all lovely at first sight, you don't actually pay attention to it much, and it leaves very little to the imagination
