The Best RPG Ever

This game is amazing. It has all the best aspects of the previous game but with a whole lot more to boot. Few games are so easy to learn and enjoy, while still offering up an amazing amount of game play and depth.

Yes the game isn't perfect, the graphics, while pretty, have aged (as to be expected), and the perspective, combined with the inability to zoom in or out sometimes made targeting and viewing the environment difficult. Yet there is still something immeasurably pleasurable about this game, all the characters feel alive and well thought out, and you really do step out of it feeling a hero.

I just hope that Dragon Age lives up to it's predecessor.

    A relic from a bygone era 0

    I didn't like Baldur's Gate 2 when I played it. The game practically forces you to pause and micromanage all your party members, and that's just not fun for me. If I want that, I'll go and play a turn-based RTS. That's not what I want from an RPG. I want something like, uh... KOTOR. I'm not gonna say I never paused the game at all in KOTOR, but it was generally in a few key spots, like during a tense boss fight. The whole pause every two seconds to issue commands to everyone, then unpaus...
