After months of waiting, (we first heard about this one back in March), the Enhanced Edition of Bioware’s classic D&D RPG Baldur’s Gate has arrived on the iPad. This is the full version of the old party-based game, with more than 80 hours of story-driven gameplay to go through, tons of characters and settings, plus some new characters and content. The entire PC game has been adapted for the touchscreen, and while the graphics are still very old school (2D! Isometric!), the game’s just how you’ll remember it.

I think Baldur’s Gate is a great game, but there are definitely better-looking titles on the App Store these days, and more user-friendly RPGs. That said, however, this is a classic, and if you’ve never played through it, now’s your chance. The game is available for US$9.99 in iTunes.
