Have the bars above PCs in combat been removed?

I'm playing on Hard... Elder bears (Ogre encounter )stomped my party with systematic crits @ 250, even on a buffed up (hatchet,food,BB priest buffs...) BB fighter.
I managed to beat them with Slicken which perma knocked-down foes (making the fight ridiculously easy. no hard counter ?)

 

Yet ... the damage output and graze / crit range do not feel right.

Anyone else would like to see Sensuki as a killable npc in game?

:) I would like to see him as either a really boss antagonist or as a Master of Technology who sends you on a quest to find some exotic part and rewards you by increasing your mechanic skill.  Character to be voice by...Sansuki.

^ With those tiny, mirrored sprites for player-controlled characters?

 

No, thanks. Give me BG1 sprites any time of day and night!

Do people really like the character sprites of Baldur's Gate? They look significantly worse than other games using character sprites released around the same time and even compared to other IE games (compare the Baldur's Gate character models to the drastically better looking ones from Planescape: Torment).

If we're talking BG1, then yes, I do like them. The design is simple but it looks good.

 

I agree Planescape: Torment had better looking sprites, but that game is quite ... peculiar, compared to other IE games (it even had unique sprites for every joinable NPC). Even then, mirroring them was a poor decision (mirroring is really lame).

 

BG2, on the other hand, changed player-character sprites to those mirrored, tiny, poorly designed ones that I really dislike. Quite unsightly.

Yes, I found the mirroring to be annoying as well, constantly switching sword and shield hands at every turn... That was one reason why I was slightly disappointed with Heart of Winter, which updated the IWD engine with the new sprites. Also, the inventory graphics of the shields, most noticably, did no longer fit their ingame appearance. The new sprites were animated more smoothly however.

 

And on topic: I judge the PoE models to be more detailed and to my liking than the IE animated sprites.

 

And PoE has evolved further with the new patch :) My first impressions are: definitely better than before! More icons, better level ups, backer characters less obstrusive, better inventory... Haven't started to fight yet however. I wonder how that goes this time.

Is it bad that I would love to see something similar to what they did with Lanfear?

The creature size in the IE games is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more practical than the creature size in Pillars of Eternity.

I think that for the damage they do, beetles are exactly the right size.

For pathfinding purposes they are too big. They should tone down their size a bit. Wood Beetles actually used to be smaller, and they increased their size :/

I agree with Sock, those beetles are nasty and the size makes them look the part.  They come in different sizes too depending on the specie.
