Time to roll up a character...
I don’t know what possessed Beamdog to make Siege of Dragonspear an expansion to the original [Baldur's Gate], nor do I know what devil’s pact coerced them into making it thirty-odd hours long. It’s insanity.
But hopefully this isn’t Beamdog’s last bit of Baldur’s Gate content, because they’ve done an incredible job. As someone who first received Baldur’s Gate for Christmas way back in 1998 on six—six!—CD-ROMs, Siege of Dragonspear feels like a long-lost (and polished-up) chapter of the original, like it belonged from the start. That’s quite a feat, given the seventeen year spread in between.
