Summary

A Nice Bone To Gnaw On

The Good

I liked the fact that the XP cap was raised enough to allow people to go up an additional level or two. Also, there were some cool new items like the Sling +2 and Quarterstaff +2 (my main character was a Wizard). Also Durlag's Tower was pretty interesting to explore.

The Bad

It didn't do anything to add to the main storyline. But really that's nitpicking on my part.

The Bottom Line

Basically there were a couple of "holes" in the land map for the original Baldur's Gate game so these were plugged with a new town and Durlag's Tower. I think there are four quest added to the game so there were plenty of ways to build your characters up to the maximum XP level (which I was at by the time I finished the game). This was a nice bone for us junkies who'd already finished Baldur's Gate and were waiting for Icewind Dale (and Baldur's Gate II).
