Storyline

In the high fantasy medieval world of Forgotten Realms lies the continent of Faerun. Baldur's Gate is one of the biggest and most important trading towns and city-states on the continent. The young ward of mystical monk Gorion, whose name, sex, race and class are defined by the players, lives in the keep of the monk order Gorion belongs to. He or she has never been outside or known anything about his/her parents. One night, the ward has a disturbing nightmare. In the morning, Gorion sends the ward away for his/her protection. The ward is joined by her/his best friend Imoen, a skillful thief. Their adventure soon takes a dark turn when they witness Gorion's murder by a strange man in the forest. After some adventuring, the ward meets Jaheira, a half-elf fighter and druid, and her beloved husband Khalid, both of whom are old friends of Gorion. They offer help and a goal - to investigate the suspicious shortage of iron ore that has befallen the land recently and made everyone paranoid ...

Trivia

It has been posited on various websites that Baldur's Gate composer Michael Hoenig plagiarized the orchestration for the game track "Attacked by Assassins" from Henry Mancini's original orchestrated theme to the film Lifeforce (1985). No formal allegations have been made but if one compares the two tracks the similarities between the music from the 1998 game and the 1985 film is incredibly striking. See more »

After 10 years, still great
22 April 2007 | by TalleballeSee all my reviews

It feels almost weird to review a game that was made almost 10 years ago, but the fact that it still holds a place as one of the best games I've ever played speaks volumes of it's qualities. The story, the game-play, the very world you play in are all parts that make up this masterpiece. In this game, and it's even better sequel, BG 2 - Shadows of Amn, I AM Talle, an orphan from Candlekeep, whom is forced to leave his home and try to survive in a beautiful and at times dangerous Faurun. Few games has made me feel so involved. In fact the only games that compares are the above-mentioned Shadows of Amn, Planescape Torment and Fallout 1 & 2, all products of Interplays daring and artistic vision. With risk of sounding like an old man I have to say it's a shame they don't do games like these anymore.
