    Baldur’s Gate is my favourite series of all time, and I absolutely cannot wait for the enhanced edition! I’m really looking forward to playing it on the iPad, I think it’s a perfect platform for a game like this.

    BG 1 and 2 are my most loved video game stories, and are the epitome of Bioware’s story telling magic. I grew so attached to the NPCs; I don’t think I’ve ever felt like that about characters in anything. This is like a reunion of long lost friends for me and I’m so excited to see them again!
