To say it’s like Dragon Age: Origins is like saying that Star Wars: A New Hope is like Star Wars: Rogue One, Baldurs is the classic and In many ways better.

 It has at least 150 hours of gameplay for a completionist and enough customization to spend 150 hours on just character skills and spells. If you like Dragon Age and want to dive into the Origins of RPGs Baldur’s Gate is a great place to start.

In Baldur’s Gate II you have to use the skills and abilities of your entire team in unison around your enemies pausing often to figure out what the best approach may be.
