Ratings and Reviews
After my review initial the developer replied the app will be updated with the 2.5 patch release. I still strongly recommend you buy from a platform like steam or other source for regular udates considering the 4 year appstore update gap.
Developer Response ,
Once the beta of the 2.5 patch is over, the game will be updated everywhere, including the Mac App Store.
Crashes constantly about half way through campaign.
Although the game brings back many fond memories from playing the original, I can’t recommend the game due to a couple of issues. The first is just annoying, that the pop-up text boxes for items and areas in the map have microscopic font that is completely unreadable. I could live with this. However, the game frequently crashes when travelling from area to area. Once I got to the Baldur’s gate bridge, I could no longer travel to any area at all, making any further progress in the game impossible. Given that the last update to this game was 2 years ago, it seems unlikely that these bugs will ever be fixed.
Most Crashing Game Ever
Played original BG a dozen years ago, so this incarnation was really fun- until the crashing began. In many regions, seemingly impossible to leave the current map w/o crashing. Can’t leave Baldur’s Gate bridge N, S, or W. Cloakwood a nightmare because of crashing. World map sometimes shows grayed or fragmented icons for area maps. Many areas in SW region have the crashing episodes when leaving the local map. Gnoll area not shown at all. Game now seems unplayable.
