Former BioWare developer David Gaider has praised Baldur’s Gate 3 as a worthy successor to Baldur’s Gate 2. He said that the game “resurrected the feeling of it in every way” and that Larian Studios “clearly put a lot of love into it.”
Gaider worked as a writer on Baldur’s Gate 2: Shadows of Amn, which is widely considered to be one of the greatest CRPGs of all time. He also worked on other BioWare classics such as Dragon Age: Origins and Mass Effect 2.
In his Twitter thread, Gaider acknowledged that Baldur’s Gate 3 is not without its flaws. He said that he encountered some bugs and that the game is still unfinished. However, he overall praised the game’s writing, characters, and combat.
“It’s not perfect, but it’s a hell of a lot of fun,” Gaider said. “And it’s a worthy successor to the best of what came before it.”
Larian Studios has been praised for its work on Baldur’s Gate 3. The game has been praised for its innovative turn-based combat system, its deep character customization, and its rich and immersive world.
Baldur’s Gate 3 is currently in Early Access, but Larian Studios has said that the game is nearing completion. The full release is expected in 2023.
