Which old Infinity Engine game should I play in preparation for Project Eternity? in Computer and Console Posted April 22, 2013 I'm a sucker for good narration and atmosphere. So besides the obvious recommendation of PS:T, I'd go for IWD. It's beautiful to behold and to listen to, and it just plays well. Also, it has combat that's as good as it gets in a AD&D 2e game. IWD2 is a bit tedious to play, does not look as good as it should - lots of garish colours, a mixture of aliased and blurred renderings, and nasty contrasts. Also, while in principle the story is interesting as far as the villains' motivations go, it never really gripped me. I've stopped caring for the Baldur's Gate games by now, just not my cup of tea anymore. I've played BG 1 as one of the first games and it really got me into role playing (pen and paper as well), but after a few replays it just feels stale and flawed. Got to admit I only ever finished BG1 once. Now BG2 on the other hand. I lost a big part of my life to that game...and I'd still play parts of it with pleasure, though the Irenicus dungeon, Sahuagin City and the Underdark are pretty much just tedious by now (especially since you're *stuck* there until you're done with them I guess).
