Baldur’s Gate 3 review-in-progress | PC Gamer

Gather your party, folks, because Baldur’s Gate 3 is finally upon us. A whopping 23 years after the Bhaalspawn and their buds took a trip to Athkatla in Baldur’s Gate 2, we’re back in the Sword Coast slaughtering goblins, getting spooked by mind flayers and spewing out magic missiles. And even for a jaded old man like myself, who’s a bit tired of traditional fantasy, I’m having a blast returning to my old stomping grounds. 

I’d like nothing more than to slap a score on this thing and send you off on a grand adventure, but I’ve only had access to the review build since Sunday night. Sleep is for the weak, but even after spending every day since then playing until dawn, I’ve still got a long road ahead of me—hence the “in progress” part of this review. You’ll need to wait a wee bit before I render final judgement.

The good news, however, is that so far this is an absurdly impressive CRPG. My dream CRPG, really. As I’ve fought, stolen and sang—yes, I’m a Bard—my way through the Forgotten Realms it’s felt like I’ve been playing the Greatest Hits: the best parts of Ultima, Baldur’s Gate, Planescape: Torment, Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura, Pillars of Eternity, Divinity: Original Sin… all the heavy hitters.
