Every world has conflict. Good and evil. Friend and foe. Safety and danger. In Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn™, you'll find yourself between these factions. This epic sequel will immerse you in a world of intrigue, adventure and fierce combat where your ability to discern the difference between these sides - with the assistance of steel and spell - determines your fate.

Your story begins anew in the exotic southern kingdom of Amn, amidst the opulence of the sinister capital city of Athkatla. Journey through the fierce, unforgiving wilderness of Amn, and through the treacherous caverns of the Underdark, in your quest for artifacts of awesome power and treasure of inestimable wealth.. even challenge dragons, if you dare. Such is the life of a legend.

Hundreds of monsters and characters to discover, and all new magic spells to master. Richer quests and sub-quests to undertake, for good or for evil. A massive gaming world, hundreds of hours of gameplay! Not to mention the countless number of mods available extending this already awesome game!

As an avid player of both, BG2 takes the cake.

IWD, lost lots of the spell caster interest, especially 2.

depends what you want.

BG is better characters and story, IWD is more challenging with more rewarding combat.

I would argue that Baldur's Gate II is the greatest game ever created for PC. Similar to its predecessor (Baldur's Gate) but superior in every conceivable way Baldur's Gate II is an epic story telling of not only the path you make, but the friends your character makes, the villains he fights, and the Forgotten Realm he lives in. The story alone, with hundreds of branches, multiple plotlines that interweave could make a text adventure that would put most modern games to shame. We haven't even touched…
