Baldur's Gate:
Chaos threatens to overwhelm the Sword Coast. The state of Amn is under siege to the south, the High Moor is being overrun in the north, and the region around Baldur's Gate is in turmoil. The player starts the game with one character. This character can be generated using any of the races, classes, and alignments allowed by Advanced Dungeons & Dragons. Up to five other adventurers may join the central character as the epic quest proceeds. The player begins in the glorious castle of Candlekeep, an orphan seeking self-knowledge.
Tales Of The Sword Coast:
Continue your travels on the Sword Coast with the next set of adventures in the award-winning Baldur's Gate roleplaying game series. Legends of treasures lost and monsters to be defeated abound in the region. Almost all have at least some basis in truth. Are you up to the task? Will you return with even more fame than you accumulated in your previous travels? Or will you journey off, never to be heard from again the source of your own legend, in turn?
Baldurs Gate 2 - Shadows Of Amn:
Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn is a mythic saga continuing the much-loved Baldur's Gate storyline. The Forgotten Realms adventure ensues along the southern portion of the Sword Coast in the merchant kingdom known as Amn. The borders of this region include such diverse environments as the Elven forests of Tethir, the Cloudpeak Mountains, The Drow cities of the Underdark, and the Capitol City of Amn, Athkatla.
Baldurs Gate 2 - Throne Of Bhaal:
Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal takes players through an all-new storyline rich with intrigue and treachery as they unravel the mysteries of the Dungeon of Watcher's Keep and explore other new areas such as the City of Saradush, the Fortified Monastery of Amkethran, Sendai's Underdark Fortress and the player's own Planar Stronghold.

 Best games to ever be made

Amazing. The only way to describe this series. Incredible and original storyline which new games just don't come close to matching in terms of quality.

Don't buy these games if you are looking for intricate fighting detail. The graphics of moving characters (particularly for BG1) are rather poor. That said, it doesn't matter once you get into the game. You get so immersed into the complex storyline that the graphics fall into nothingness. It's very easy to lose 4 or 5 hours of your day playing BG because you just don't realise so much time is going by and because you just really want to carry on playing to find out "what happens next."

BG2 was an enormous improvement on BG1, both graphically and in terms of game playability. Characters actually have "real" personalities which you have to deal with. Throughout the whole series you choose if you want to be good or evil. You can import your character from BG1 into BG2 to improve the continuity of your game or you can simply create a brand new character from scratch.

As a rough estimate, the first time you play BG1, expect to take anything from 50 - 200 hours to complete, depending on whether you do all the side quests or not and on how fast YOU want to play the game. For BG2, I'd say perhaps 200 - 300 hours + about 30 - 35 for the expansion pack.

Despite the fact that the games are so long, they are still very replayable. For instance, you may complete the game as a good fighter, but then start again as an evil mage. Whilst the main plot will essentially be the same, all side quests will be affected by this difference. Playing as different character classes in BG2 also enables one to try out all the strongholds in the game. Play as priest and become part of a temple for example. Play as a thief and join the local thieves' guild.

At the price of £9.99 this is an absolute bargain. These are classic games which set standards for all RPGs to come after them. The general consensus is that the BG series was and still is the best set of RPGs to ever be made. If you are a fan of the RPG genre then you should play these games just to understand how the rest of the RPG world works. To this day new RPGs take influence from Baldur's Gate 1 + 2. This is quite spectacular given that BG1 will celebrate its 10th birthday next year. In the world of PC gaming this is half an eternity.

It is worth considering that if you wish to play these games on very modern equipment (XP home or pro/Vista) some bugs may interfere with gameplay. The patches available from the Bioware website sort 99% of these out, so it is worth getting them. It may be possible that these DVD-rom editions come with the patches already on them.

If you encounter difficulty in the games (and it is likely you will) do not hesitate to perhaps either ask friends who have already played them or even consult the online fan-made guides which you can find by simply using any good search engine. There are fans who have written better FREE walkthroughs than the official ones (now out of print). They will offer invaluable advice on how to get past a particular battle or puzzle.

So, if you are looking for games which combine adventure, a great storyline and puzzle solving then these are the games for you. If you are looking for something nearer the world of Hack-n-Slash then don't waste your time here. Although it is possible to try and kill everything you meet, it somewhat destroys the point of the game.

With you lies the decision and if you do buy them...Good luck!!!

 Still awesome after so much time!!

Ok, the graphics look really aged nowadays and multiplayer wasn't much of a multiplayer to begin with, but the single player game is utterly brilliant, especially BG2 & ToB. The size of the game, the sheer variation, the humour, and most of all the interaction with other NPCs - This is the BEST RPG of all. What a pity that NWN never was remotely as good as BG2 and what a pity that some people will dismiss BG2 because of its graphics without taking the time to savour its depth.

This still is a gem of a game and many who played the original are still hoping for BG3.

 Reminisce!

Thoroughly enjoyed playin this again - for a few days anyway... cool to have in a collection though. Represents a milestone in the genre.

 fun for its day - with modern games is past it

i played this game years ago and found it to be great fun. ive been quite bored lately and thought an old classic might be nice so for 9.99 hardly an expense. the graphics and game play are resemblement of the era. could not get back into the game again due to the poor level of quality. if you never played it and are straped for cash then ok but otherwise there are many better games to play that dont require very high spec pc's

 Brilliant

Great game, huge amount of depth, with a hugely entertaining and gripping storyline. Definitely one of the best in the rpg genre, with hopes for a bg3. As a side note, there has been talk of a bg3!
