  • Just as I thought, best for me to wait for full release!

  • This a pre-alpha at best NOT an Early Access. The game was never tested at all. Reeks of bugs, memory leaks, and the rest. It was a quick cash grab and people are too blind to see it.

  • Does anyone know if Larian plans to update Early Acces with new classes and story elements once they are finished? or are they keeping Early Access as is and doing the full game release next year?

    • @miendudeplays Ok, that sounds fair. Thanks.

    • Yes, they plan to keep updating the game and adding classes/characters until full 1.0 release. I'm not sure if they are going to allow access to the other acts in the future, but for now it's only act 1. I think they just want to iron out the core mechanics and balance first. Their track record with early access has been great since DoS 1 and DoS2, so I would personally have faith.

  • I feel like maybe 90% of the comments here didn't actually watch the review at all. Leana is well aware of the game being early access, and if your argument is "you shouldnt review things in early access I would kindly tell you to sit and spin. If you charge full price for a product, it can and should be reviewed.

    • @Jacob Richardson I’m one of those “sane rational people that never comment”, if that’s true then why has the guy only 1 like? And probably even from Himself. why do you have only 1 like? Most sane rational people would disagree with you and the guy. Nobody is forced with a gun to the head to buy this early acces game, they buy this because they want to support the devs, joining the community of people who give feedback etc and ofcourse hardcore fans of the series. And no, i never played any baldurs gate fact, i dont even have a gaming pc. I’m not even a gamer, cause the last time i touched my ps4 was in 2019 when resident evil 2 remake came out. I’m only here because it ‘s 1:55am and i can’t sleep and to tell you you’re wrong.

  • Complains about the classes, thats what tradition epic D&D is. The whole foundation of RPG games were built by these classes. This is what you get when a millennial reviews an old school RPG haha.

    Ironwind1972Ironwind1972Pred 2 dnevi
  • Complaining about the lack of content while saying multiple times that it's early access is laughable. That they give us THAT MUCH (instead of JUST THAT like in the video) is incredible: 5 companions with an already pretty fleshed out backstory and a budding development in just the first act/prologue (though I must say I find some of them rather similar in personality, half of them are stuck-up a-holes with Astarion, Gale and Lae'Zel being the prime examples), the classes are really complex and faithful to their DnD 5e counterparts, the character creation is amazing already... My only complaints are that the companions come at you too fast (Gale literally pops into existence): having them all be on the ship - while giving them a reason to travel together - feels very restrictive in meeting conditions and thrusts the story at you without giving you time to get to know one character before the next one already tries to stab you on the road. My second and last complaint is more tied to the game feeling like a Divinity game with a Baldur's Gate skin, but it's a tricky one to fix. Larian studios are obviously playing to their strengths (and there's nothing wrong with that! I'd rather have that than them trying and failing miserably, although that's what the early access is for), but apart from the bonus actions like the amazing jump and push I feel very little manages to make the game feel different from their flagship franchise. Regardless, I and my father are glad Baldur's Gate is getting resurrected and we'll happily report all the game-breaking bugs we find!

He did say that he was incredibly optimistic EVEN in current form, and that essentially this was the truest form to D&D gaming that exists in the modern market. IGN Reviewer: "This is an early review, we know that the game is not finished." IGN Hater: "OMGUH, Can't you guyz see the contradiction when you're reviewing an early access and say it's an early access?!?!?!"

  • Why just score a 7, when all your complaints are based on the game beeing in early access? That´s the whole point of early access. Even the developers said that most people should just wait until full release and they made clear that this game is buggy and glichy. So your score is just unfair and gives a totally false impression of the game.

  • "Excellent dialogue and writing". Lol. The game's dialogue is as if written by a 15 years old aspiring fantasy author. All characters are an exact manifestation of their alignment and a complete whitebox. Other than the gith character all of them have the classic "secret I can't talk about!"-background as well. It's covered in layers of cliches and hammy writing.

Trust me Larian Studios have about the same passion and quality as CD Projekt Red

  • The way the review is organized has more of an 'early access' quality to it than the BG3 game does... IGN always tries their best to take the spotlight by publishing reviews as soon as possible without much care given to the writing itself. If you want insightful and exquisitely written reviews, definitely go for Easy Allies instead of this.

  • This reviewer doesn't know what he's talking about. Baldur's gate 1 and 2 are basically 2 of the greatest crpgs of all time. The entire package was awesome. The thing with DnD is it doesn't translate well into a computer game. The dice rolling that you do with your friends in tabletop can't be replicated here. I mean, sure you can do the rolls, do each check but its not the same thing. You can't emulate the banter between friends as you roll dice That is why the original Baldur's Gate games had real time. With a computer game, you want strategy. I mean combat was way better than turn based games. I mean the old school DnD games were turn based but with modern computers it felt like Real Time with Pause was a step in the right direction. This game feels like Divinity OS 3 not Baldur's Gate. If they wanted to make a turn based DnD they should've called it something else.

    • There were two different Baldur's Gate series. The original "Baldur's Gate" series on PC was a more strategic, slower-paced with more traditional D&D aspects. The newer "Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance" series on consoles were a more action orientated, fast-paced hack-n-slash like the Diablo games. Baldur's Gate 3 is a contiuation of the original Baldur's Gate series on PC, not the Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance series on consoles. If you're interested in the Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance series, I recommend keeping an eye out for a game just called Dark Alliance.
