Overhaul has done the seemingly impossible and brought one the most important RPGs ever to the iPad. Better yet, they did an amazing job.

I det stora hela känns Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition som en värdig uppdatering som ger fans anledning att återvända till forntidens rollspel. Nya spelare får också plats och bör se till att ta den eftersom detta är ett alldeles ypperligt tillfälle att upptäcka en riktigt spelskatt. Men jag skulle ljuga om jag inte sa att det kommer behövas ett stort tålamod och en villighet att ta del av komplicerade och stundtals orättvisa regelverk. Men det är klart. De vackraste diamanterna kräver ju lite jobb.

More a re-release than an enhancement, but still a fascinating reminder of how engaging a good role-player can be even without modern graphics.

One of the best RPGs of the 1990s comes to the iPad. It's still great but that greatness is marred by some serious control issues.

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition knows who it's aiming for and hits the mark almost perfectly, but as a result, gamers yet to enjoy the deep complexity of such an RPG may be quickly overwhelmed and even put off by its clunky design.

Once I played enough of the game to become accustomed to the interface quirks, though, I was able to put them out of my mind for the most part and just enjoy this classic RPG.

Ultimately Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is a flawed but admirable port of a game that fundamentally isn't touch-friendly. If you're still on the fence, just know that this game requires commitment. There's gold here, but Baldur's Gate keeps its treasure for the dedicated and does not tolerate dabblers.

It's Baldur's Freaking Gate on your iPad, which is awesome. But difficult to recommend over other versions to anybody not already familiar with the game.

The core experience of Baldur's Gate remains as compelling as it ever was with Overhaul's new enhanced editions, and a host of minor tweaks do a decent job of updating it for a new age. Unfortunately, the iPad version suffers from terribly cumbersome and unresponsive controls for getting through doorways and looting that make the simplest tasks as challenging as any battle.

If you're not a fan of the original, you'd be best to give this muddled revamp a miss.

Ich bin schwer enttäuscht von dieser iPad-Variante des Klassikers. Weder die Kulisse noch die Steuerung wurde für Apples Tablet optimiert. Das Team um Trent Oster serviert eine dermaßen fummelige und antiquierte Benutzeroberfläche, dass einem aufgrund der vielen fehlerhaften Tipper sowie des mangelnden Auswahlfeedbacks die Lust auf ein episches Abenteuer vergeht - man muss sehr frustresistent sein, um sich hier durchzubeißen. Was bringen mir all die Klassen, Zauber und frische Charaktere, wenn das Spielerlebnis voller ärgerlicher Stolpersteine ist? Selbst der relativ leichte Einstieg wird aufgrund der miesen Bedienung zur Herausforderung. Hinzu kommen kleinere Bugs und Abstürze - also: Finger weg! Wer dieses großartige Rollenspiel erleben will, sollte auf dem PC mit dem Original spielen. Das gibt's für knapp zehn Dollar zum Download.
