Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn reviews

IGN.com (2000) - "Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn is not as beautiful or artful as Planescape: Torment. It's not as revolutionary to the genre as the original Baldur's Gate. Though, truly revolutionary titles are so rarely polished and well groomed that I can count the few that come to mind on a single hand, and artful, well-written games aren't always as fun or long. In many ways, Baldur's Gate II is the culmination of the powerful RPG renaissance that's been driving the genre over the last several years, a rebirth that originally started with its predecessor, Baldur's Gate. It redefines attention to detail, game balance, longevity, and spit and polish. It's not overbearing in its creativity, and it's not paper thin. In the end, it's simply a superb role-playing experience one of the best. There's not much you can compare it to. Baldur's Gate II has no peers. It commands your attention and will command your life for months. It's exactly the RPG I've been waiting for."
