A tablet is worth it for this alone I can't praise the developers enough for bringing the infinity engine to Android. Given that the market is predominantly saturated with people that are happy with standard f2p fare it seems unfathomable that such a venture is worth it but I find the mechanics and gameplay superior to nearly everything available right now. Imagine being in awe that a game can offer so much satisfaction rather than surprise that it offers any at all. Beam dog should truly be celebrated for preserving games so absorbing and bringing them to the palm of our hands.
Baldur's gate is an amazing RPG and the android version is flawless! I really want to see BG 2 made for tablets as well...as the title states, if you call yourself an RPG fan then this game is a must have! I currently game on a 13.3 inch Hannspad running android 4.2.2 and I haven't encountered any gameplay issues. Oh yeah, if you get this game and think you're going to play it on a phone...forget it! This game was not made for phones, plain and simple. You need a 8 inch or larger screen.
I played bg when it was first released and it remains a highly playable grand rpg which I keep installed on PC to this day. Whilst the additional work on the enhanced version is all fine it does neither add or subtract from the original. Still this runs faultlessly on my nexus 7 and was worth the wait. The controls have been smartly reworked for touch screen and though it takes a bit of zoom juggling at times, that is expected. Entering some doors can be a problem which could do with an expanded click zone
Amazing This game was created in 1999 and when I first played it, I was like OMG this game is awesome. My dad received a trial of the first two chapters. After we played the first two chapters we needed more and got the game in its entirety. Then after we completely mastered the game we were depressed that it was all done. Then they came out with the sword coast. That didn't give much extra but still fantastic. The rest is history. However this game is the #1 rpg adventure ever created on a pc. This game is great.
Tablet issues Love the game, but it does not work with the onscreen keyboard of my galaxy galaxy s tab. Makes it impossible to pregen characters (cant save the file) nor can i write in the journal or do a custom background. Otherwise great game, would love to see these issue resolved.
Pretty much as good as it gets on Android This is one of my favorite pc games, a perennial reinstall that I'm excited to now have in full enhanced edition glory on my phone. It's probably more ideal on tablets, but the new touch screen-friendly zoom function makes it totally playable on smaller devices. With 100 or so hours of classic yet updated gameplay, this is well worth the price tag. Also, protip: you can move your saves back and forth between the PC version and this one. Handy if you want to play on the go and at home.
