Default Baldur's Gate - Enhanced Edition - iPad Review @ IGN

December 14th, 2012, 17:58
IGN has now also reviewed the iPad version of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, where the intro sums the review up nicely.
I want to love Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition for the iPad. Really, I do. And in its first few moments, as I created a new character and assigned my stat points with its responsive touch controls, I dared to believe that my few concerns with the PC version last month would translate into success with this portable version of the 14-year-old classic. This, I felt then, was how Baldur's Gate should be played. And yet it insists on breaking my heart. Deep down, this remains the exciting RPG that inspired later favorites such as Dragon Age: Origins and Neverwinter Nights, but its iPad incarnation suffers from wonky controls that make the simplest actions a chore.
