GameOver inforemd us that they have a review of Baldur's Gate 2 - Throne of Bhaal on their site. Their overall rating is 90%. Here is a snip:

    TOB is not an easy game by any means. Even veterans of the previous games will need to reassert their skills to get through many of the key battles. Most will be full of spell casting opponents along with a good share of physical violence. The ability to counter spell attacks, magical resistances, and spell shields is crucial. The game will try your abilities and have you constantly reaching for the quick save button (and the quick load button), but every accomplishment makes you feel that much better. For anyone that enjoyed the Baldur’s Gate saga, this is a must own.

    The Baldur’s Gate saga introduced us to the Infinity engine. It also will be the final hurrah for this simple yet refined engine that changed the way we play RPG’s. With Neverwinter Nights looming on the horizon, a new breed of RPG’s will continue what Bioware started, but TOB closes the door on Baldur’s Gate era of RPG renaissance. I’ve grown into the BG world and for one of the few times in my gaming history, I will actually miss the world that was so viscerally created by the team at Bioware. It’s like finishing a good fantasy novel and putting it back up on the shelf with all the others you’ve read and walking away with a true feeling of enjoyment.
