    Review: Baldur's Gate 3

    Every so often, an RPG comes along that amazes you. That is so close to perfection that any bugs or glitches are forgivable. That captivates you in the story and everything else you can do; that, by the time a couple of hundred hours have passed, you remember you're supposed to write a review about it. Welcome, then, to Baldur's Gate 3. Baldur's Gate 3 builds on classic RPGs of yesteryear while still offering the depth, mechanics, and gameplay that you expect from a modern game. It also does this so incredibly seamlessly. When I say this is a game-of-the-year contender, it's not hyperbole.

    A Whole World to Explore
    Like any good D&D campaign, no two people will have the same experience. You can choose whether to be good or bad or operate in that grey middle ground. Not to mention, you can pick a named character and see how their story plays out if you don't want to forge your own path with a self-made one.

    The world feels vast and alive. With monsters, dungeons, towns, and places to go and explore, you will always want to go off the beaten path to see what adventures or misadventures you can have. The world map is huge, and in places, it can be overwhelming. As it's mostly open world, there is plenty to see, and thankfully, it doesn't all look the same. These visual differences make the world exciting and more realistic (well, as realistic as a fantasy world can be!). Obviously, there are areas that won't be accessible; this can be because of insufficient skills or plot-related reasons.

    [...]

    SUMMARY
    + Vast world to explore
    + Engaging, well written and acted story
    + So many side-quests and other things to do
    + Deeply rich in lore and character development
    + Excellent implementation of tabletop RPG elements
    + Fantastic combat
    + There are a Ridiculous number of options to build and develop your character
    + Beautiful sound and visuals

    - Throws you in at the deep end with a steep learning curve
    - The occasional graphical glitch

    Baldur's Gate 3 is a fantastic fantasy RPG that will be sure to take hundreds of hours of your time as you explore the world, delve deep into the plot, and enjoy countless other side activities. It looks fantastic, plays fantastic and is just all-round fantastic.

    Score: 10/10
