Old school RPG Anyone not liking this game should have done there research before purchase. It's by far the best port I've seen on the play store. Game play is true to form to the PC version and dad been adapted well to a touch screen format. Recommend to anyone who likes a little nostalgia from the early turn based hack 'n' slash days!
Awesome game. Great port of a classic pc rpg. Very well done port. Almost seems like the game was originally made to play on a touch screen interface. If you like isometric pc rpg and haven't played this yet or you want to play again I highly recommend this game. $3 for potentially hundreds of hours of gaming. Character and party customization is nearly limitless. Uses 2nd edition DnD rules and beautiful old school 2d sprites. Only issue is it can be hard to read on small displays at high res and a stylus is almost required.
Endless Replay Value I played the original Baldurs Gate and Baldurs Gate 2 and all their expansions way back in the day and spent countless hours doing runs with different parties and solo runs on the highest difficulty. I enjoyed this game just as much as I enjoyed Baldurs Gate way back when and now I plan on doing a solo run with my maxed out F/M/T on HoF mode. Replay value is utterly infinite in games like this if you enjoy perfecting characters and parties. I will continue to play Icewind Dale for years.
I love this. Compared to Baldur's Gate 1 & 2, it's more linear, and your party characters are not relevant to the story. But in terms of gameplay, atmosphere and scale it's better still. The combat is just perfectly weighted. Anyway, buy it. There's plenty of PDF manuals available online for those complaining that they don't understand how to play. I've been playing on a Note 4, and while a bigger screen would definitely be better, it is totally playable on my phone. Amazing work, Beamdog. Thanks!
I tried Icewind dale many years ago, and dropped it because "it was too hard, its impossible to play it!" And now, 15 years later I'm enjoying it. Sure, it's set in completely different tone than Baldurs gate and is not *more* but *totally* combat oriented, however still it is great game and interesting to play. Recommend for anyone who likes dungeon crawlers, since there is not too much story in it.
This was the ultimate game to build the perfect party and run them through countless times gathering the best loot. Final battle was harder than I remembered on the PC from years ago. One of my fave along with BG1&2. Still playing after months and keeping putting together ultimate parties for multiple run throughs. Pros: Voice acting has a pretty great variety. Creating epic god like party hacking across the ten-town area Still visually good after years. Great linear story line. Awesome extra races / classes / weapons added from vanilla. Cons: None...don't complain about the price...this game will last.
