|A new review of Baldurs Gate 2 - Throne of Bhaal sprung up at GameVisions. Favorable gaian, with a rating of 95% (graphics got 99%!). Gameplay rating was 94, because they found the expansion incredibly difficult:
I hated to drop that point there down from 95, but the incredible difficulty encountered in the expansion is simply a bit much, and the need to constantly reload, wait for timestops, or other annoyances really adds to the frustration rating of the gameplay rather quickly. It's still fun simply because it's building on what is D&D, and all D&D games are fun, but I think it could have been toned down a bit here.
