This game felt like first hobbit movie compared to lord of the rings movies. Too many fights with too little time and story between. Caelar story was pretty generic one with bhaalspawn addon. It was also presented little strangely at couple times. Besides the dreams with "Hooded Man" Last 10 minutes of the game pretty much was the tie up story between BG1 and BG2 and it was a Harrison Ford's The Fugitive copy... I miss the random npc encounters from BG1 that didn't have anything to do with quests, just brought the world alive.
Areas were very beautiful mostly but lacked anything else, besides monsters. It felt more of a chore most of the time. I played with charname Inquisitor and Sorcerer, Jaheira, Vic, Baeloth and Safana. I used SCS mod. Most of the fights were just fireball fest. I think there were too many enemy groups in small maps i stealthed forward with Safana, noticed a group, fireballed them, stepped few meters just to notice another group waiting for fireballs. That got boring real fast.
You got plenty of new magical items, but then the game was pretty much over already. This game would have been way better if developers wouldn't have tried to cram too much stuff in such a short game. There were some awesome places and fights too. I liked the ghost dragon place. Places with unique enemies that required some tactics. Noticed at some point that there are multiple solutions to some quest things too.
All in all, 4/10 felt like soulless tech demo with large fights and population.
