Baldur's Gate - Enhanced Edition - Review @ RPGFan

RPGFAN has an interview for this game, scoring it at 85% and here's the reason why:

Beamdog has clearly worked hard on Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition. There's a lot of love to be found, with the great new characters, ease of use, and general tweaks and improvements. Sure, much of what has been done here can be done with the original game, a few hours, and some mods. But for me, experiencing this classic journey with some new faces and abilities at my disposal was more than enough to warrant the price of admission, so if you're interested in trying out one of gaming's true classics, for the first time or the hundredth, this is a pretty darn good place to start. Now then, go for the eyes, Boo, GO FOR THE EYES, YAAAAARGHH!!

An ecxerpt from the review itself then:

I spend so much space discussing the character interaction, because it makes up a huge portion of what makes this game so special. These days, conversation choices, even in Bioware's games, are usually limited to two or three canned responses that, in most cases, are available to every kind of character. Seeing upwards of five two-to-three sentence conversation choices in Baldur's Gate will remind you that in our age of streamlining and mainstreaming, something has indeed been lost. It should also tell you that if you don't like to read, this is not going to be the game for you.
