Well, from my point of view - that would depend entirely on your intentions and how you treat the original work.

When I first heard about EE - I was very excited, because I thought they might do something really significant - and I thought they might be in it for something other than money.

Sadly, I've seen very little to think they really wanted to improve the game. Everything smacks of opportunism and wanting to do "just enough" to make it run on modern machines with minimal hassle - and adding "just enough" to warrant a higher price tag, without integrating it properly.

So, no, I don't think fans of Bioware would have a negative response. In fact, I think the entire EE project is based on the premise that fans of old-school Bioware would kill for an updated version - especially on the tablet platforms.

Anyway, I've bought every PC RPG they've made, and it's certainly no secret that I enjoy most of them, but that doesn't mean I have a hard time seeing that the ending of ME3 is a disgrace. When their work sucks, it sucks.
Still haven't experienced that

Still, this is all besides the point, as BG: EE wasn't even made by BioWare. Also, why are we even discussing this? I never said anything about writing a full blown review, I said the exact opposite - I'm more likely to update my impressions based on a few more times through the game.
We're not really discussing it, are we? I'm just poking you for a bit of fun - based on joxer's request for a review.

Nah, I respect your opinion - and I can tell you're trying to be reasonable and objective about EE.

There would have to be a fairly high demand for me to bother with an actual review instead of just simple impressions.
Don't write one on my account, as I'd have no need for it. But it could be interesting, all the same.

That being said, feel free to add topics or questions you would like me to discuss/answer when updating the main post.
I would like some feedback on the new content that goes in-depth and objectively compares it with the older stuff.
