|IGN PC has "fully" reviewed Throne of Bhaalm the expansion pack for the game that no longer needs to be introduced, Baldur's Gate II : Shadows of Amn...|
Graphically, the more powerful spell effects are quite good. When you have a bunch of magic users on the screen all casting their most powerful spells at once, you really start to realize how far the series has come from the first game in terms of graphics. The backgrounds are just as detailed as in Shadows of Amn, and even more beautiful in some instances, while the soundtrack is just as good as it always has been and the spoken dialog is perfect.
Most importantly, Throne of Bhaal continues the excellence in gameplay that was started back in 1998 with the original Baldur's Gate. Not a stone has been left unturned in keeping the game as true to the rule set as possible.
