|A new review of Baldurs Gate 2 - Throne of Bhaal has been spotted at Gaming Unlimited. With a rating of 96% you can take for granted that they liked this addon. Very much so.
I wait and wait with anticipation each time I beat one of these Bioware RPGs; the promise of another installment always has me filled with eagerness. But now, the wait is over; I'm happy and grief-stricken at the same time that my epic adventure, up the Sword Coast and throughout Amn and beyond, is finally over. Along the way I've met with friend and foe alike, helped the helpless, defended the defenseless, and randomly killed a few peasants on occasion, just for good measure. It's been a journey wrought with glory, danger, deceit, love, and action, and I'm sorry it's over. Bioware has stated that Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal will be their last game that uses the Infinity Engine (though that doesn't mean Black Isle Studios won't still use it), which means we can expect future games of theirs to use more advanced graphics technology (such as Neverwinter Nights, a game that will probably shut us down due to loss of staff). Throne of Bhaal is, without a doubt, a near-perfect ending to a near-perfect series.
