    unless they patched it, this is infamous for not working. If you want this game, better to wait to see if it's on sale on GoG, for some reason that one worked flawlessly.

    It's because GOG put some effort into making sure the older games run out of the box, for example games like fallout and vampire come pre-installed with the unofficial patch.

    One that passed me by back in the day, is the story as good as early Bioware games to playthrough now?

    In my opinion yes but the game hasnt really aged gracefully. It can be a bit of a hassle to get running properly (works great on Steam Deck though if anyone is wondering, better than Windows for some reason) and even then its clearly a very dated game. If you dont mind playing through games like KOTOR nowadays then its very much of the same ilk.

    If anyone did buy this, refund ASP, and look at even the good review, many of them talk about needing to find workarounds to get it to run.

    just wait til it's on sale on gog or ea's own shop, the steam version is a no-go if you want to just download then play it.

    steam forum just look at the issues people are having

    This game needs a reboot or a remaster honestly one of my favourite games growing up 100% up there with kotor.

    I remember playing this game on the original Xbox as a kid. The RPG choices basically let you be an absolute psychopath and it was great
