Baldur's Gate App User Reviews & Comments

Better Than ExpectedI played this on my PC years ago and LOVED it. As my PC won't support this game, or IWD, or BG2 anymore, I was excited when this hit the app world. I was skeptical at first and waited for the bugs to get fixed. This EE version of BG1 is FANTASTIC!! All the old Easter eggs are present, new features that I love, e.g. the potion and scroll cases (still looking for gem bag). I'm really enjoying this. Easy purchase for the $. If you played the PC version and have an iPad, get this! I haven't tried the phone version, yet. Might be too small, even for the 6+..Version: 1.3.1

Why do I need to turn off zoomed view mode??Using an iPad Pro 12.9 - I have it in zoomed view mode because in standard mode the icons are too far apart on the home screen and text is tiny. Please fix Baldur’s Gate so it doesn’t require that, or refund me and remove the purchase. EDIT: Yes, those options do not do anything to the issue. The app still displays as a small box in the center of the IPad Pro’s screen. EDIT2: the developers have acknowledged that their only "fix" is to turn off zoomed view mode, which makes icons on the home screen look and be spaced terribly. Not an acceptable solution considering these apps are the only ones I've seen that have any issue. Not acceptable..Version: 2.4.71

Made for the FingersAny old school top down RPG or point & click style game feels right at home on iOS! Instead of dragging a cursor around it feels very intuitive to simply point and have your commands met. In lieu of keyboard shortcuts, I actually find this method more enjoyable. The writing here is still the best aspect of the game; funny, engaging, and deep. The entire game has depth, don’t expect to be godlike your first time round - but the fun is deciphering the D&D gameplay mechanics! The only feedback i have preventing BG from getting 5 stars is the lack of iTunes File Sharing. Yes, you are able to export saved games to play on computer & iOS interchangeably. However, on the computer I have several custom portraits I’d like also transferred to iOS. Its not a deal breaker, but sometimes it does pull me out of the story not seeing the characters as I see them in my head. I’ve already purchased the portrait pack, but I like to have NPCs looking unique as well. This was enabled pre 8.3 update, but since it’s been blocked. Enabling the iTunes File sharing for this would be amazing! Overall, thank you Beamdog & Overhaul for giving us the ability to play on the go. Prepared to get hooked, & good luck in Faerûn!.Version: 1.3.1

Awesome Port! iPhone 4SClassic RPG in the palm of your hands. Extremely entertaining, and overall good port. Be sure to increase the font size for better experience, and set the pause settings to however you like. One problem is when trying to tap the top character portrait, you may close the hero panel and won't be able to reopen. Save frequently! Otherwise, it's a great game and works well on iPhone..Version: 1.3.1

A solid port of a perfect gameYes, the PC port will be slightly easier with a mouse but the portability of this game on an iPad made it very fun to play. Party controls may take getting use to. Also this is AD&D 2.5 rules , so people may not be used to the system some, but a quick guide will teach u the basics. Don’t worry about character creation too much. U can beat the game with anything really . Just enjoy it.Version: 2.5.17

Terrible Gameplay!My husband and I played Baldur’s Gate on our original X-Box, and loved the game. When I saw it was available on the iPad, I had to give it a try. The gameplay is absolutely terrible on the iPad. I got stuck in the tutorial, with little guidance on what to do. Moving around isn’t easy, nor is using a spell or attacking someone. The touch screen just doesn’t work well. If you don’t touch in exactly the right place, you can’t do anything. And the graphics make it very hard to know what spells you have available, as they are not described without a hard press and hold, and the images are hard to see. (I have a 9.7” screen, too.).Version: 2.5.17

Not as good as they say...I was busy playing Civilization and SimCity in the late 90s, so I missed out on the Baldurs Gate games. They are always such highly recommended games, so I thought I should play one. Yeah, I think the high acclaim for this game is nostalgia-tinted. This game is not as good as people say. The UI is clunky. Much of the game is cryptic and not self-explanatory. Gameplay is cumbersome. The voice overs (not sure if those are original to the game or not) are so awful I had to turn the voice volume down. Wish I could get my money back!.Version: 1.3.1

Great game,The re-makers of this game did a great job bringing back the feel and familiarity that made BG1 popular. A touch-screen port to iPad appears mostly seamless. It's a fun game that preserves the original game quality with a lot of potential for replayability and exploration of development details. The game has a few minor bugs or unintended consequences (what game doesn't, if you spend enough time playing it) but overall they did a good job fixing some of the old bugs that the original was prone to. There are some opportunities to add some labels to the screen to help players with non-intuitive aspects. In the original game you had a mouse and the cursor would change when waving the mouse over dynamic aspects on the screen, thus prompting the player to realize something could be interacted with. However the touchscreen port means there is no cursor and thus some of the on-screen interaction is not clearly identified. (Remember developers: some players may be purchasing for the first time and don't have prior experience playing the original, so don't assume too much that every player will have sufficient knowledge to figure out how the game was intended to be solved) Overall: great game.Version: 1.3.1

Almost 5 stars on the iPhoneI’ve now purchased this game three times! First, upon the original PC release, the updated PC release, and iOS. I really feel like there is so much more opportunity to port old RPG games to iOS... (Ultima Underworld: The Stygian Abyss, anyone?) I’m playing this now on the iPhone XS Max. I am LOVING it, but a few interface tweaks could really improve it. Obviously it is not optimized for iPhone X and above, so there is some wasted horizontal screen space. Also, though I know the game was designed for tablets, it is fantastic to bring it around in my pocket, and really the challenge on iPhone for me is just discerning some of the icons, specifically spell icons. Also if the game was programmed to fade the iPhone’s home bar that would be nice - I think there’s some precious vertical space lost there. Anyway, thanks to the developers for realizing the continued value in these classic older games! My opinion is that a pinch of iPhone optimization might get you a whole new batch of players..Version: 2.5.17

Nostalgia, Does this generation really have more ADHD than me?I read a couple of the reviews, and I will preface this one by saying I played ( although didn't finish ) the game when it originally was released on PC. There was not a tutorial at that time, and the game was an awesome experience. Apparently, today it looks as if most the poor reviews are from people that did not play the original ( and likely were not alive when it was released ) as the beginning area in this game provided more guidance than I remember of most games at that time. Ok so I have rambled long enough, if you played games in the mid to late nineties, you will like this game whether you ran across this one or not. If you are accustomed to more recent games with integrated and in depth beginning tutorials, you will find this game difficult to get started with. I recommend buying it, and sticking with it. I find it is much easier to play on my iPhone than it ever was on my PC..Version: 1.3.1

Enable File Sharing With PC AlreadyThis is a great game. I have both the pc and ipad versions of the game. I want to be able to play the ipad version while I am away from my pc and transfer my saved games between the two. Please enable file sharing so I can do this. This is 2015, so this should be a standard feature for a game of this nature and with this much depth. The way is it right now, you have to choose between the two versions instead of embracing both of them at the same time. Come on Overhaul/Beamdog, fix this for us..Version: 1.3.1

Great Port!Awesome game and works great for mobile! My only complaints is that the UI is very small on the iPhone 6 but perfect for iPhone 8 Plus. The iPhone 6 small size makes it difficult to make accurate clicks but with an apple pen you can offset this issue or simply a device with a bigger screen. Main reason I’m giving it 4 stars. Highly recommend getting an apple pen for whatever platform you’re playing on, it’s just a more convenient way to play this game as you will be making a lot of strategic moves and misclicks will just make it harder to play. And idk if this is just me but the graphics look better than pc because of the small screen (less pixelated)..Version: 2.5.17

Great For Handhelds! (One One Condition)Even if you’ve just played on-paper role play games you would be fascinated with this one if you want to get the same level of satisfaction. This game as served me many years on the computer and will now live in my iCloud, devoted fan! Just ran into one game ending bug I get sometimes: whenever I loot something (with the dialogue screen halfway up), the red button below the looting window in the middle is covered by that inventory/dialogue window, forcing me to just close the game and start at the quicksave. Of course it’s never game breaking. Baulder’s Gate taught me to save often despite that but I know how maddening it can be to some people. Love what you guys do, I intend to buy the bundle in the future to support. C:.Version: 2.5.17

Abandonware?I just spent $10 on an app that hasn't been updated in 2 years. That's my fault. But I would expect an app that hasn't been updated in such a long time would be perfectly bug-free...while the app hasn't outright crashed... I've been stuck in a tutorial with no idea what to do next. I'm a clever person- and it's not likely that I have missed something completely obvious... there's just three characters in a dining room doing nothing. The lack of 64-but support is just icing on the cake. I won't be able to use this app in a few months anyway. What a waste of money..Version: 1.3.1

Needs commitmentThis is a deep and complex old school RPG with a steep learning curve. I strongly suggest you find the manual to this game and study it first. Although it takes some work, the payoff is enjoying one of the greatest classic RPG series ever made. The series will give you back dozens and dozens of hours of enjoyment if you put in a little time at the front end. There is a long story line with much reading involved, many companions to get to know and adventure with, and complex combat with endless ways to play. Take your time and enjoy it the old school way and you wont be disappointed..Version: 2.5.17

UPDATE!Update #5: THANK YOU! It’s sad that it’s so rare nowadays that a developer actually listens to their customers, but Overhaul has done it. Restoring the appropriate rating to this gem of a game. 5 stars, and well worth every cent! Thanks guys! Update #4: While all the other Apps got an update (I already updated my reviews back to 5 stars), this one still hasn’t! What’s the hold up? You updated the sequel, but not the original? I’m still trying to beat IWD before I even begin on this one, and what’s the point of playing the second before the first?? Waiting.... Update #3: Still nothing, yet I added one more star to my rating because, according to the website (as of the 5th of July 2017), an update is "on the way" for BG:EE and BGII: EE (they added in ID:EE as an afterthought, so hopefully there as well), but no ETA. I'll update my rating IF this app gets updated. Update #2: Still nothing. $10 for a game that won't even play correctly on the newest iOS devices (or anything after 2015). Instead of updating this and their other apps (the 2nd BG and Icewind Dale), they just release a NEW game for $10. Sorry Devs, but you won't be receiving any of MY hard earned cash until you start UPDATING your games. Please, for the love of GOD, could you update this game! I paid good money for this!.Version: 2.4.71

Perfect.I played through Baldur's Gate when it was originally released many years ago and played it again five years later and then yet again five years later. Unfortunately, my old computer went toast and I swore off PC gaming forever because of the ridiculous costs and hassles of keeping a computer up to date. I had long thought the iPhone and iPad could make perfect platforms for some old classic games. And here it is-- Baldur's Gate, in full iPad glory. Zooming made easy, click with a finger, and you can see all containers easily. I just finished it tonight and I'm a completionist, which means I look in every container and in every nook and cranny for content. There were zero problems and many old bugs fixed. [I do wish they would've fixed the old character scripting issue for thieves set to "Thief Aggressive" where pathing is interrupted whenever the thief automatically attempts to hide in shadows and/or a failure of shadow hiding, but alas...] A friend bought this game for me... I didn't know of its existence on iPad prior to then. Now I'm downloading BG 2 and then Icewind Dale. I do hope Icewind Dale 2 AND Planescape: Torment are in the works!!.Version: 1.3.1

I want to love this game, but not scaling on iPad Pro 12.9Update: if you have zoom turned on for the iPad Pro, the game does not scale. Would really like to be able to turn this back on. 1. I really, really want to love this game. However, the game is not scaling on my iPad Pro 12.9. Trying to build a character to play initially is so painful, because I cannot read the text without holding the screen near my nose. Happy to change the review if there is some way to correct this issue. (Note: I did try changing all of the settings for display without any change.) 2. I purchased the in app purchases while on my iPhone. Those do not appear to have come through on my iPad. Further there is not an option to restore purchases..Version: 2.5.17

Didn’t play the pc versionLooking for a good iphone DND game, I gave this a try. I am still giving this a try, but it is a hard slog. I probably have to change my combat tactics, but for the novice this game appears to highlight all of the worst parts of actual role playing games (yay! Let’s walk across a giant map for 5 minutes! Let’s click though countless menus trying to organize our inventory! Let’s struggle to walk through doorways! Let’s accidentally cast the wrong spell because one rock icon looks just like any other rock icon!). Meanwhile, the part of DND that most folks find enjoyable, combat, happens in a muddled flash. I have tried modifying the scripts, but the characters have yet to behave sensibly. So, we spend 15 minutes traversing a forest landscape, then 15 seconds getting killed during a random encounter. I’m sure I am missing something, but it has not been super enjoyable trying to figure this game out..Version: 2.5.17

Almost as good as it's sequel. Play this one first.I originally played BGII as a preteen, and enjoyed it immensely. But never got around to playing the original. Now with the Enhanced Edition, I can take my game with me. On an iPhone 6S Plus, the screen *is* a little small to see occasionally, but over all its still very manageable. The iOS has a small button in the corner that allows you to highlight containers, doors, and NPcs, very useful for the format. My favorite enhanced feature is the ability to long-press on the Quick-Save button to export your save to BGII, Dropbox, or your email. Makes it super easy to play the same save on PC and iOS if you know what you're doing..Version: 1.3.1

Not for everyoneIt's definitely not for everyone. I've played similar games before (PoE, Divinity: OE, Diablo) but none of them really compare to the depth of BG. It took me about a week of fumbling around and getting frustrated before I started to get the hang of it but now I'm absolutely hooked. If you're going to really sink some time into it and you have plenty of patience then I highly doubt you'll be disappointed with this game. The payoff is so worth it..Version: 1.3.1

Oh, the memories...This is the game that taught me to always clear the map. This is the game that taught me it's best to save every...single...time something happened. Also, it taught me to never let a barrel or cabinet go un-rummaged. I totally agree that the controls are a challenge to decipher if you never played before, but we had to figure it out back in the day, so stick with it! You'll get it. So happy I found this game again! It's perfect!.Version: 1.3.1

Truly enhanced version of a classic gameA must-play RPG for any fan of D&D. Great updates to the UI, bug fixes, graphical improvements, multiplayer (which works much more reliably now in 2.5) and re-adding missing content and adding expansion content and their own. Can be a bit difficult at times, especially if you stumble upon expansion content too early - just come back later. Only one quibble: When building a character, it says refer to the manuals. But there are no links to download the manuals anywhere I can see on their website. Where are they?.Version: 2.5.17

Love the gameLove Baldur’s Gate. Love the EE and especially the new characters. Dorn is a beast! I bought the game several years ago with my new iPad before BG II EE came out. iPad has since gone to the kids and come back to me with the game deleted. When I redownloaded from the App Store the in game purchases I bought didn’t come with them even though it’s the same account. Any idea how to get them back? Now that there’s the new bundle I’d like to get it and play it all through..Version: 2.5.17

CrappyI really want to like this game but the buttons are so small and all of the directions are so unclear, there are no labels for anything just small icons you can't even tell what they are for, no moves list so you kinda just gotta press it and see what happens. And the worst part is they'll be like "in the bottom of your screen press this button" but that where all the buttons are located, and sometimes it won't even be there lol. There was one distinct instant I remember that they said it was on the left and it was on the right. So disappointed i spent 10 fricken dollars on this game and can't get past the tutorial. Also doesn't fill the screen on the 7 plus and that bugs the hell out of me. Too small and awful awful directions/explainations..Version: 1.3.1

Horrible UIThis is the most horrendous tutorial for any app I’ve ever encountered. I can’t get past the flipping tutorial to review anything about the game. The tutorial does not give enough information to accomplish the given tasks without constantly googling for help. The game constantly spams you with messages while trying to figure it out. I have never been so frustrated with any game or app ever. Did anyone test this crap? I should not have to have experience with the game on pc before using it on iPad. I should not have to google for help to get past a flipping tutorial!.Version: 2.5.17

Should be rated higherThis is as much a review as a love letter to Beamdog. Thanks for porting those games. I’ve rolled five characters and played through these games repeatedly. I’ve racked up countless hours in gameplay and many times that much in thinking about ways to explore the game mechanics. I’m sad to see so many bad reviews because it’s “too small for the phone”. I’ve played it on my iPad but honestly prefer playing it on my phone for some reason. I’m glad Beamdog didn’t restrict it to only iPads for fear of getting the occasional bad review from people with sausage fingers. I rarely hit the wrong buttons and don’t know why so many people seem to have a problem with that... Beamdog did a great job correcting issues I had with this port in the past (e.g. collapsing side bars, save importing, etc). My only hope now is that they find a way to port some of the Neverwinter Nights titles someday. Trent said it would be a challenge and presume that means even more than the formidable challenges they faced in getting BG titles out the door, so I’m not holding my breath. Thanks for the memories either way..Version: 2.4.71

Great but bugsNowhere to report issues with the app. I’ve had multiple instances where I was looking at an item and an NPC initiated conversation. The dialogue box blocks the button to exit the item and I have to force quit the game. Other than small bugs like the above that obviously stem from adapting a pc game to a touch screen, it’s a great game and great to be able to play on my iPad..Version: 2.5.17

Great game that I won't have in a couple monthsThis is a phenomenal game that feels right at home on the iPad. It's better now than I remember as a kid. A major drawback for me, however, is the lack of 64-bit compatibility. I understand this is an older game but I bought it fairly recently for a fairly substantial amount as far as App Store games go. I really home a 64-bit version is coming or I'll be out of luck when iOS 11 is released..Version: 1.3.1

3.8 stars? Give me a breakBG is a legendary game, and anyone who isn’t a complete chimp can figure it out. This port is great, and perfect for iPad (I wouldn’t do it on a phone). I don’t know where these low reviews are coming from (probably competitors) but for an old school RPG experience with great writing and storyline, along with excellent tactical D&D rules-based combat, it’s hard to beat. The idea that’s it’s rated 3.8 while I’ve seen complete garbage rated 4.5+ is mind numbing..Version: 2.5.17

Supurb!This is an excellent remark of the original Balder's gate. it has everything the original had but with the addition of more locations, new npcs from the second one and characters polish. i never did play the original when it came out so the power of the greatest pc game to ever live is not portable on my iPhone. its also worth it to pay for the three new characters and new voice additions since this is a 60+ stroyboard..Version: 1.3.1

5 stars foreverI’ll never know why this game is rated as low as it is it’s probably the best game on mobile for the fact the phone doesn’t play it for you and you actually have to put physical input and thinking into what you are doing and know how to make a character properly the first couple of runs if you don’t know D&D basics very well will probably be trial and error and the game might be hard but I feel that’s what makes it fun that being said there is a new feature where the mage class auto targets and cast his spells by himself I don’t like it absolutely hate it tryed to turn it off and can’t stop making my games play by themselves please I bought this one specifically because it didn’t then it got changed.Version: 2.5.17

Perfect.I have never reviewed a purchase before, but decided I had to for this one. After reading other reviews I almost didn’t buy this game, but I am so glad I did. I played this game on PC back when it came out, and am very impressed with the game play on the app. I am playing on the IPhone 7 Plus, and it is awesome! If you are already familiar with the game, and are thinking about playing on your phone, I would recommend it. I have been able to get further than I ever did on the PC..Version: 2.4.71

Inventory frustrating!I really want to like this game. Yes the words are small, but zooming the font helps some places. The icons are still small but you can get used to it. But what’s really frustrating is I can’t figure out the inventory. How to compare items, look at stats? I try but keep grabbing the item and wants to replace existing. A click-hold just brings up a general description. Would be nice to easily look at stats to compare, then decide what to keep/sell/quick slot. It also be nice to have unlimited inventory..Version: 2.5.17

Key Character Personalities DestroyedGreat game. Some significant changes were made to several characters to cater to a very small minority that might play this game, and the personalities were stripped from a couple characters, fairly important ones. This is how you ruin a game. Luckily it’s still playable but I’m really disappointed about Jaheira and Safana. It’s just not the same game. Would get 5 stars from me but guess I will just go back to PC. Not cool. With all the other crap that is happening in this world like humans being sold and bought and 10 million people dying from smoking related causes and governments working with cartels to traffic drugs somehow this is offensive and unacceptable? These changes are so out of touch and need to be an option called |_| POLITICALLY CORRECT.Version: 2.5.17

Great gameThis game has been working great for me on my iPad Pro, no glitches, no time outs, honestly it’s better then the original abuse I don’t need to keep changing discs, this game does deserve 5 stars and it needs a newer review to prove it costs 10 bucks but I think it was worth it for me cause of the memories I get from playing it again..Version: 2.5.17

Worth taking the time to learnThis is an epic series at an epic price. I’ve spent several weeks playing through 1 & 2 and Planescape:Torment is awesome too - arguably even better than this - but this is pretty good! It IS a late 1990’s port, so don’t expect the latest and greatest, but this has a rich story line and awesome gameplay. I didn’t buy the add ons and wish that I did... Not sure what it would be like to go back and play them now..Version: 2.4.71

The nostalgia is realAll the glory of the old BG game. Played this game growing up and it is everything I remember. Still super difficult yet fair. Controls took a little bit to get used to but generally very friendly controls and pausing. If you are a fan on these kinds of games, this one one of the originals and one of the best ever made. Best app purchase I have made! Shadowdancer for life!.Version: 1.3.1

Love having this game aroundSo there’s some bugs (still) but that doesn’t bother me. This really is a game for people that broke their swords on the original. I’m just happy to have it, pick up whenever I want. I know the game might be cumbersome for newer players. The documentation and help could be better. I guess it’s a steep learning curve if you’re used to recent FPS. This is an original RPG. If you know DND it might take a little while to work with the interface. But the rules are the same, the combat is the same, the spells, the quests, and the great NPCs. Anyway, I hope the negative reviewers give it a little more time. It really is an awesome game. I like to play it through every few years with a totally different character to get different results. Also the transition from mouse point and click to touch is astounding. Good job team :).Version: 2.4.71

Buggy and almost unplayable on an iPhone XThe experience is probably great on iPad, but the app shouldn’t have even been offered on iPhone. Tapping squares with millimeter precision is just a horrible experience (those of you with phone screens smaller than the iPhone X will fare even worse). Parts of the UI for character sheet creation would appear after the game begins making a large portion of the game surface invisible. The app would also crash when clicking the Continue button loading a saved game. Unless you have an iPad, do yourself a favor and play this on PC..Version: 2.4.71

Purchase RestoreGreat and classical RPG, there aren’t many issues in the gameplay. Only one issue of DLC, which I bought all DLCs on my main iPhone, I can access all of them on the iPhone I bought them. But I can’t access DLCs I bought on the same account on another iPhone or iPad, I tried to find some buttons like restore purchase, unfortunately there isn’t any. Then I searched google for the issue, I found this issue had already been spotted by other people about 3 years ago (maybe four, not sure the exact time, but a long time), the developers said it would be solved in a new update, but there has no news about the progress. They only said, working on the new update, they said so month after that post, said the same again after few months, years, and until now. I am really doubting are these developers working on the new update, or just left it there maybe because this game is too old and don’t want to fix it anymore..Version: 2.5.17

So much nerdy goodnessI'm really having a blast with this one. Hours and hours of gameplay for a really good price! Plus the game tells an engaging story. That said, it takes strategy. Pretty much every level is defeatable if the player takes time to think about how to go about it. It isn't. A good idea to just go in and try to grind your way through a level, which is why I suspect some people may be frustrated. Pause, think, and act. It's so good to be back in the Forgotten Realms!.Version: 1.3.1

Can we get a tutorial for this tutorial?Do not buy this game. I bought it last night and I’m still in the tutorial... They’re trying to show me how to pickpocket, which requires the character go into stealth mode and tap on the target, “Belt” (a person). I go into stealth mode, tap on Belt, but guess what? “Belt: has nothing to say to you.” Okay. Tap him again and, oops! Out of stealth mode. Let me just—“Imoen: You haven’t got the gem. What’s taking so long?” She chimes in every ten seconds. Every. Ten. Seconds. So I go stealth, tap on Belt, Belt has nothing to say to me. I go back into stealth, tap on Belt, he’s still reticent, and then there’s Imoen asking me what’s taking so long. I’m sure I’m doing something wrong, but what? I’ve done tapped, double tapped, long tap, tippy-tippy-tap-tap, and Belt’s still just looking at me like, “😶.” Until they make tutorial for this tutorial, I’m back to Minecraft..Version: 2.5.17

Still a great gameOne of my favorite games from childhood. Beamdog did a great job bringing it back to life and as unbelievable as it seems, the iPad is a fantastic medium to experience this fantastic game. The iPad’s multitouch screen has ruined me for the PC version. Being able to zoom in and out on the iPad is pretty glorious. The first day my wife and I played we had numerous issues such as the game refusing to unpause after resting and constant network drops, but we resolved them by switching out her 2011 iPad for our PC and using the local network/direct connect option. After doing those two things the game has been rock solid. Crossplay between my 6th gen iPad and our PC has been great. Being able to introduce my wife to this game has been awesome. She’s having a blast. Thanks Beamdog..Version: 2.5.17

A huge messI never played this game before. But I was very much anticipating doing do. On iPad Pro it's a disaster. The interface is klutzy, clumsy to navigate, and leaves new places completely in the dark. You have no idea what icons mean and navigating is ungainly and awkward. Clicking on tiny things is near impossible for simple tasks of combat and looting and talking. A shockingly poor version. I really expected more. Clearly the game wasn't tested on ipad by new players for the developers to make it work properly. Even the tutorial is ridiculously and unnecessarily confusing! The tutorial continually messes up, doesn't it actually tutor you on things, and unless you're already deeply familiar with Advanced Dungeons & Dragons v2, you can't learn it while you play..Version: 1.3.1

Love it. Best true D&DWhat a treat to play a game I loved way back when. Back in those days, I had to assemble binders with printed walkthroughs and item locations. It required a huge time investment/obsession. Now, if I get stuck, I can just google very specific info, and the gameplay controls/importing characters are easy. I’m going through the game effortlessly, which makes it more enjoyable. I splurged on this set at the beginning of the coronavirus lockdown and finally beat Throne of Bhaal. I just purchased Neverwinter Nights and was disappointed that I can’t import my characters, but I’m glad to see yet another Forgotten Realms game on iOS. These games on iPad were my dream come true..Version: 2.5.17

First ImpressionsAfter reading all the "rave reviews" on this PC to ISO port, like an idiot I bought into the hype and purchased this title. One review hit the nail on the head. While graphically stunning, the game is harder than it should be to understand what the Tutorial is actually trying to make you do. Without an image of the "icon" we are being instructed to use I found myself clicking on everything to find what they were talking about. But after several failed attempts the NPC was kind enough to explain it a little bit better. But it's just not good enough and really talks away from any enjoyment one might expect to get from such a great game. I highly recommend that no one purchase this title until the Tutorial has been redone so that you can move on and learn as you go. Do you really think telling us to do one thing after another, for God only knows how long, that we would remember all that stuff? Teach the game to it as we go... Show us as we need to know it. Very Disappointed. Oh, and only because I am forced to give it atleast one star, which should be against any thing that resembles a moral, that's all I think it deserves right now. The uninformative tutorial just ruins what should be an awesome beginning to an Epic Quest..Version: 1.3.1

Love this game!!!I love this game a lot. It was one of the first games I really ever got into as a kid. And seeing it here on my phone and my tablet makes me extremely happy, there's just one problem... When I open the app it tells me that it won't be supported by upcoming IOS's, and I was just wondering if Baldur's was going to be seeing an update in the near future.?.Version: 1.3.1

Wonderful Port!I’m another person who doesn’t understand all the negative reviews here. This game is very well done and a lot of fun to play, but you need to learn how to play these types of games. There is a little bit of a learning curve up front, but it’s not that difficult. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll enjoy the game, storyline and depth of play. I attempted to play this game 15 years ago, but I didn’t pay much attention to the tutorial which caused me much frustration and eventually I abandoned the game. Now that I have taken some time to learn how the game works, I love it! They really did a fantastic job of getting this game onto a mobile platform. I’m very impressed!.Version: 2.5.17

The best D&D game to this dayDon't play this on a phone and don't expect any hand holding. I see too many 1 star reviewers whining because the game doesn't spoon feed them information. The game works better than expected on iPad, coming from someone who has played BG since its release in '99 at the age of 6. My biggest complaint so far is that the selection circles aren't circular for some reason and look hand drawn in a bad way. Cross-platform multiplayer blows me away. While this was clearly meant for fans of the original, I'm disappointed at the reactions of new players who expect it to follow modern gaming trends. This game and the sequel are immensely rewarding if you invest yourself in the story and in learning the 2nd Edition AD&D mechanics..Version: 1.3.1

A good start, but not there yetI love Baldur's Gate, but regret buying this for iPad. As others have pointed out the interface and controls just haven't had enough work done to them to make playing this an enjoyable experience for me. Conflict, which was already not much fun in BG1 is a chore in the iPad version. Loot and doors are problems, but not near as much as group selection and movement, which require far too many taps and are thus tedious in the extreme. The graphics are nothing special either. So sadly, I've deleted it and decided to buy it for Mac instead. Here's hoping Beamdog will improve the experience in upcoming patches, but I do consider it unlikely. Honestly, I can't recommend it. Buy it for Mac or Windows instead and here's hoping we get BG2 sooner rather than later..Version: 1.0.2007

Excellent GameI am pleasantly surprised by how this game turned out on iPad. I was expecting it to be watered down compared to the original PC version, but it hasn't. I finally have a game on my iPad that I don't get bored with playing after five minutes. I do think walking through doors and opening boxes could have improved functionality though..Version: 1.0.2007

It's finally hereAfter a long wait, we finally see this classic rpg on the ipad. The game will take alot of getting used to for newer players to the series, liberal use of the quick-save and pause game function to issue commands in combat is a must, a little bit jarring for those wanting fast paced action, but ultimately worth it to experience the amazing storyline/dialogue BG:EE offers. Highly recommended..Version: 1.0.2007

Unpolished DiamondI just want to encourage the creators to keep updating this game and working out all the kinks. This is a really enjoyable game that sometimes gets overshadowed by the occasional bug or control issue. Despite these issues I keep playing it and looking forward to see where the story goes. Keep up the great work guys, your efforts are appreciated..Version: 1.0.2007

Side bar issueOn the iPad it was possible to reopen the side bar (after a few minutes of trying) but the iphone is too small. I don't know of anyone who even wants the side bar minimized. I got annoyed when it was minimized back when it came out on the computer. Don't get the wrong impression about this game though. It is one of the best games I have ever played (and that's a lot) second only to its sequel (which I haven't finished yet lol). But the issues with the side bar literally make it impossible to play, not being able to save, quit, equip gear, etc although if you still have the right side bar you can click on their face for a few seconds and it should bring up their equipment which u can use to get to the other menus..Version: 1.3

Best AD&DStill has replay value to this day and for me will have for a long time yet. There have been many RPGs since BG was originally released, but this is by far the best CPU adaptation of turn based play. The story line is very well written as are the NPCs, they really make it feel like you are playing co-op. Awesome game, was, is, and always will be! If there is never a BG3 I will be gutted..Version: 1.0.2007

Great funThis is as fun now as it was back in the good old days, but better as I can take the game with me. I can play it on the lounge or wherever I am. I hope they do this for BG2 and other games.Version: 1.0.2007

A must play game for any RPG loverOne of the great RPG games of all time now on the iPad. Absolutely loving being able to play this on the go and I am waiting for the sequel (which is materially better!). A deep complex game which requires thought and does not hold your hand. There are lots of online resources to help you along and the tutorials do provide some starting point. There are some interface issues but in the main, these are minor. I do find that there are some crashes (particularly around multitasking) but the quick save button is readily available.Version: 1.2

Bring on BG II !!Still my favourite RPG of all time. I thought the game played much better on the ipad than PC, as the ability to click more quickly on multiple points on the screen is superior to using a mouse. Plus ipad is so much more portable than PC, so I found you play through the game a bit faster. Note to developers: everyone is waiting for an ipad version of Dragonspear!.Version: 2.4.71

Difficult to controlI'm a huge Baldur's Gate and general RPG fan. As soon as I heard there was an iPad port, I bought it. Unfortunately, it's frustrating to play. Touch doesn't have the level of precision required to play this game enjoyably. I'm constantly pressing the wrong target, fiddling with character selection, and accidentally moving. The HUD view is the same as from the old PC game. While faithful to the original, it takes up too much of the screen. I think that the HUD and controls should have been adapted more for touch..Version: 1.0.2007

Thank youStarted playing this on the PC. Now I can enjoy this game in my arm chair and on the toilet seat. Great work developers on this awesome port. I and so many people were waiting eagerly for this port to come out and with bugs and other issues I didn't think it would be released on the ipad till next work. Great for releasing it on time. Now. Can't wait for no.2.Version: 1.0.2007

User interface!Great gameplay, runs smoothly, extensive adventure. But seriously it's only ported from the pc version. There's no change to make it optimised for mobile device especially for phones. For example the spell books, inventory, the way you cast spells , everything is the same as PC! This makes it so difficult to use, there should be a new way to open inventory like making that page full screen or different format to fit screen better. More importantly the spells page is a pain, I cannot identify them by the symbol and the method of holding them one by one to look what spells do is a hassle. It's better if its a list format if it's on a hand held device. All in all, good gameplay only hindered by the ui..Version: 1.3.1

Side bar bugOne of the best games ever and set the standard for rpg's for a decade. Unfortunately I have fallen victim to the same tool bar minimisation bug. Except mine is the right tool bar rendering the game un playable. The tab is too small on a phone to click. I would rate this game 5 stars if I could continue to play it. All that is needed is a patch removing the minimisation completely, no one EVER played this game without all tool bars....Version: 1.3

Great to play againAwesome to be able to play this game on a mobile device. There may be a few interface problems, and occasion crashes, but for the complexity of the game this is managable. However to get 5 stars could producers please add an option to remove the level cap. One part of the replayability of the game has always been the challenge of getting through the game solo, without taking on party memebers. The level cap makes this difficult toward the end, and one should afterall be reward for any and all actions taken in all missions, not just up to chapter five or so..Version: 1.3

AlmostDoesn't not appear to run properly on iPhone 6s Plus - seems to run in 4:3 ratio and not 16:9. Waste of larger screen size just to have black bars on either side..Version: 1.3.1

Best gameI was astounded by the depth of this just kept going! I'm not a massive game player but this could convert me! For an old roleplayer, I love that it follows D&D so well, I can just about see everyone around the table rolling to hit!.Version: 2.5.17

A real gameAs others have noted there are a few minor issues with this title, however as we all know we need more real games on the App Store. This qualifies. The developers aught to be applauded for thinking of iOS users instead of just remaking it for PC and leaving it at that. I for one hope this title is as successful as it deserves to be..Version: 1.0.2007

DisappointingWhenever an area of effect spell is case (such as web) the gameplay slows down to a crawl and the only way to play it is not to look at the screen. This is the large bug and shows poor coding on their part because the IPad has the technology to run it. I simply try not to use any persistent area of effects (although sometimes your have to). Otherwise, tapping the screen to command your guys is not that difficult to do, it just takes some time to get use to it and it has been an addictive experience. They really need to fix this; it would easily be a top seller and worth the 5/5 score which it deserves..Version: 1.0.2007

AMAZINGHaving never played baldurs gate before I wasn't expecting much but it is ridiculously great it's a little hard to understand at first and get into but sooo fun when you get into it. Buy it. Worth it..Version: 1.0.3

Very annoyedThe game is fine, i still am very unimpressed with the concept of cross platform, where i cant play with any of my friends due to version differences. Apple needs to get the updates out quicker or Baldurs gate need to purposely keep all platform versions on par. Something needs to be done. Im getting the PC version now and probably going to not use my ipad version any more..Version: 1.0.2007

Great but...Great game, great port but... there are bugs (and bugs!). One can play around these but it does detract. You have to save often and just be patient. When these bugs have been worked out it will be a five star game. As it is - it's still very enjoyable. It's great to see classic games on iOS..Version: 1.0.2007

Easily best RPGSI loved playing this game as a teenager. When my brother bought this game home for the first time it blew my mind. I didn't know they made games like this or even this good. Since then I have been mad on fantasy fiction and dungeons and dragons. Definitely must have series. Also wouldn't mind seeing icewind dale on the ipad either and Temple of elemental evil. Never got to play the last as I couldn't get the game working. Wish they would go back to making the games like this and just expanding the series some how..Version: 1.2

Needs an update.Simply a classic and it has lost none of it's charm. Controls take a bit of getting used to but it does not take long to get used to them. That being said, it's full of bugs. Not game ending but certainly frustrating... specifically there are some quests that don't get marked as completed even after you complete them... but the game still recognises them as complete so it really doesn't make a huge difference. I'm assuming a patch is on its way. Can't wait for Shadows of Amn!.Version: 1.0.2007

Amazing but...How do I pickpocket people?.Version: 2.5.17

Still needs more work done!!!I love Baldurs Gate but still needs a lot of work done, game crashes randomly, hard to pick things up and walk threw doors while zoomed out, some quest's don't go into completed when done. Hope this helps with fixing these kind of glitches and bugs :) On a good note though, awesome game for iPad, can't wait for Baldurs Gate 2.Version: 1.0.2007

Fixed side bar issueWorth playing now for sure.Version: 1.3.1

Awesome!Worth every cent! I can't wait for BG2EE now because BGEE was so great. At first I thought it would be harder to control then on PC but now I see it is better on tablet then PC with perfectly optimized controls. Best app in the store!.Version: 1.2

A good effort...just a few issuesCongrats on a fine looking rendering of this absolute classic & all time fav game. Not to rain on your parade but A couple of issues that ive noticed.... Fighting is becomming a painfully frustrating task. pausing is great ( as in the pc version) but no one follows the directions they're given. my archer walks right up to the guy with a sword when hes directed to shoot from a distance. Walking through doors into premises seems to be a hit and miss affair...i usually have 2 or 3 goes before it swaps to the new room. Simulary it seems to be tricky to pick up stuff off the ground after a kill. :/ seems to crash 2 or 3 times in a sesh...thank god for quick save. Im using an ipad 3. I REALLY wanted to support u guys & give this 5 stars but the gameplay is not a shade of the original version :((( patch it up and it will b a 5 star effort..Version: 1.0.2007

Fantastic remake of original BG, easily one of the best RPG games on iPadMost Role-playing games (RPG) on iPad are fairly light when compared to PC games. But not Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition (BGEE) for iPad. It's full-on, absolutely-no-compromise port of PC version. Initial release had quite a bit of issues but now the updated version has many issues ironed out. Touch interface works reasonably well. Developers work hard to regularly update the game with funky new features such as new playable classes. If one wants to experience an actual PC RPG gaming on iPad, BGEE is an excellent choice. There are some disadvantages. The game is huge in depth, scope, play time, and download size. It's not something one can play casually. It's unfriendly to new users compared to many games; very rewarding to those who really try, but one needs to learn complex combat mechanics, spells, hundreds of characters, items, quests, plots etc. The game takes more than a hundred hours to finish. Can I recommend BGEE to any who played Baldur's Gate series before? Absolutely. I love playing it while waiting for the flight. Can I recommend it to the "uninitiated"? Tough to tell, it will be either immensely enjoyable or downright frustrating. Serious Buyers Only..Version: 1.0.3

Classic RPGSmall bugs by no means detract from this being one of the most in-depth games available on iOS great great game. I will add to the chorus of reviewers that hope baldurs gate 2 will be released soon. If your thinking of getting this game don't think just download it.Version: 1.0.2007

Needs workIf you've played Baldur's Gate before, then you know how great the game is. But, this version still needs some work. Graphics and interface should have been optimised for iPad. Also need to fix bugs with quests and navigation..Version: 1.0.2007

Blast from the pastIt's games like this appearing on the ios platform that reinstall faith for the rich experience focused adventure games making a comeback. A true classic and worth while app that will have you playing nostalgically through this adventure all over again. Hope they release all the other wizards of the Black Isle stuff!!!.Version: 1.0.2007

Brilliant to see it backThis is a classic RPG that defined a genre. It is fun and enjoyable on the iPad. For those new to BG. It is not a simple tap tap and swipe game common to this platform. It does require you to learn the interface for the game to unfold. For those familiar with BG. This is the enhanced version of BG which marries some of the BG2 rules and engine with the BG1 story. There has been some criticism of the interface controls. The tutorial was written to help ease people into the interface. If that isn't sufficient the developer site makes detailed manuals available which cover the BG game world including instructions on the iPad controls. The community online forum is extensible. And yes the game is modable. Is still relevant? Will I gave it to my teenagers and they love it. (and they don't seem to have any problem with the controls either.).Version: 1.0.3

Unbelievably and unnecessarily frustratingThe characters hassle you in the tutorial Selecting targets is a mission in calibration and pin point accuracy The tutorial is unintuitive, expecting you to automatically know where things are and how to follow the vague instructions I want the last 30 minutes of my life back together with the $7 I paid as an experienced gamer to purchase this Serious UI updates needed for this one.Version: 1.0.3

An amazing game, story and experienceI first played Baldur’s Gate on 6 disc CD years ago so I am so happy to be able to carry this epic with me everywhere - the enhanced edition adds kits, containers, quests, items and companions and is (mostly apart from nerfing critical success pickpocketing) a grand improvement in a number of ways. Whether you want to play a mage or a rogue or subscribe more to the “swords for everyone” philosophy of combat, there is a marvellous story full of adventure, emotion and betrayal to carry you there. Note: if you are re-downloading and have lost your purchases there is no “restore purchases”button *but* just click to purchase again, approve to buy and you’ll get an iOS pop-up asking if you want to download it again for free since you already own it which is a relief!.Version: 2.5.17

Support the the Black Isle legacy!I've been a stringent fan of the Baldur's Gate series and it's parent company for 15years and beamdog's contribution doesn't disappoint. The main reason that I even bother writing this review is to show my support for beamdog's vision of revitalizing Black Isles ground breakingly epic games. A requirement of quality work is the recognition of what makes a product great, this game proves that beamdog has what i takes to make it big, vision and the guts to see it through..Version: 1.0.2007

Great in all respects save oneThis is an incredibly failthful merging of aspects of Bg2 with its predessesor making the game even more enjoyable than when I remember. The only blemish is the exported character files. When playing on a PC if you have unwanted character files its is a simple matter of going through the system directory and removing them. When playing on an IPAD however that is not an option and eventually your list of pregenerated characters gets extremely congested. If I were to make any suggestions to the developers , you have done well adapting the game to a table but please take the above into account and add a simple “Delete Character” button..Version: 2.4.71

Deserves 5 starsBeing a commuter I was thrilled to see this classic returning to my iPad. Being a 10+ year old game I was hoping to see improvements. Unfortunately if you or anyone casts a spell, the game slows down to an unplayable speed (1 to 5 fps) I upgraded to an ipad3 just prior to purchase. After 6 months there is still no fix, and thus deserves the rating given... Everything else is great but the frame rates are unforgivable..Version: 1.0.3

PerfectThis is an amazingly well-built conversion from PC that works seamless on my iPad. Contrary to some reviews, the controls on the iPad are perfect and it’s superior to the PC version. It never skipped a beat throughout the entire game. I thought I would miss the keyboard and mouse but they have adapted everything and I feel it’s better than the original! Awesome, work. Can’t wait for SoD..Version: 2.4.71

Needs Bigger Icons!Amazing game, however the Icons are unnecessarily small even after scaling everything up in the options. I will give 5 stars if the icons are made bigger and they fill more of the screen (cut out border art if you have to) I have never played this game before but it is really deep and interesting..Version: 2.5.17

4 starsA great refreshed version of the original, with the best bits of the sword coast add on included. The sensitivity of the targeting is a bit of an issue and spells really slow down the gameplay but overall it deserves the 4 star rating I have given it. Still one of my all time favourite games!.Version: 1.0.3

Best game on ipadJust spent an entire weekend reliving the past with this amazing game, and it works amazingly well on the iPad. Yes, there are bugs, but nothing that has proven overtly detrimental to my experience thus far. I've encountered the occasional crash upon loading a save after death, and the performance of ongoing area affects is poor. There are also a few interface issues - for example, the pause button would serve better at the top of the screen, and picking up loot can be painful at times. But these are small gripes. Baldur's Gate is as engaging as ever, and is seriously good on the iPad..Version: 1.0.2007

Needs ImprovementWhile the game may be a classic, its transition to the iPad leaves much to be desired. The touch-based gameplay needs refining: When attempting to target something or someone, it takes several finger taps before the game gets it right. Also, spells aren't handled very well - unless you've memorised the corresponding icon to said spell there's no way for you to tell spells apart. I suppose one can get used to the interface and its limitations after a while but frankly it's annoying and frustrating. If you want to get Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition you're better off getting the desktop version. AVOID THE iPAD VERSION AT ALL COSTS. Sorry guys but this was really disappointing..Version: 1.0.3

Excellent portExcellent port to iPad. All the features of the great game plus some. Biggest thing for me is that there are no long start up times, CD changes etc to play. I can just pick up and play. Cannot wait for BG2. For those of you not played this sort of game before. Take your time it is worth it..Version: 1.0.2007

AwesomeAs awesome as it was when it first came out. Couldnt post a review before cuz i was too busy playing Some minor bugs but nothing that would prevent you from playing $10 for a classic game like this is nothing!!!.Version: 1.0.2007

Love itI always loved D&D games, games with real story! showing support as I would love to see Baldurs Gate 2 and some of the expansions Tales of the sword coast, shadows of Amn on iPad too. Not to mention planes scape torment and The rest. Yes it has bugs but I know you guys will give us some love with updates. I would rather the game soon then later so can handle a few quirks..Version: 1.0.2007

Love it but there is lots of problemsPlaying it again reminds of it was as a kid with some new features. But there is a lot of bugs. For example the scroll bar when reading item descriptions or inn keeper store items doesn't work half the time, the 'see what you can select tool' keeps making clicking noises when held down and most importantly my game refuses to open now after trying to buy the voice pack. Please have this fixed soon..Version: 1.2

Great title needs workThe original was one of my favourite games and I very much looked forward to this. I am sure the game will stand up to expectations but you guys really need to fix the technical issues. First map outside candle keep I get giant black zones not rendering at all If I minimise game and come back sometimes the sound is completely broken Some of your menus have finger scroll others need to click on an arrow. Some of these are noob mistakes and some of them frankly should not have gotten past Apples review process. This game and its audience deserve better and your rep as a developer isn't being helped.Version: 1.0.2007

One of my favourite gamesThis game is often referred to as one of the greatest games ever made, and I think this still holds up today. It is certainly one of the greatest games I have ever played. This game is huge, and hard. You are thrown in the deep end, which can be quite daunting but it is well worth sticking with it (just remember to save regularly). There has been some criticism of the ipad version but I have had no problems, and find the ipad is the perfect platform for this type of game..Version: 1.2

Must have. Simple as that.There are a couple of little issues, like the tap targets for looting and transitioning doorways could be better tailored to iPad. Currently, clicking on Boo the Hamster will crash the game reliably. Tooltips need to be added to make the game accessible for people who haven't played the original. But even with those issues it is five stars easily, and the developers are responsive and apparently working on improving the game further. It's going to need the App Store changed so I can give it six stars when that happens. Anyone concerned with 1999-level graphics should just concentrate on gameplay. That's what it's all about. If graphics is all that matters to you, go to an art gallery, stop playing games..Version: 1.0.2007

Baldur's Gate 2.5.17 Update

Version 2.5.17 (2018-08-17): This app has been updated by Apple to use the latest Apple signing certificate. A fair wind favors the Sword Coast today as the 2.5 update arrives in Baldur’s Gate! After weeks of waiting on becalmed seas, our swashbuckling team of developers have released a patch filled with features and fixes..
