I think a 'wait and see' approach is what I would recommend. At the moment, there isn't anything innovative about the BGEE multiplayer. In fact, a info box appears on screen when choosing the multiplayer mode in the menu, telling players that enhanced multiplayer will be added at some point in the near future.
tapeworm00: I've played through BG numerous times, and I love the game to bits, but one of the things that frustrated me constantly (from playing on newer systems, I assume) was my complete inability to get a solid multiplayer game running without going through some really tiring hoops. The last time I tried with some friends about a couple years ago it was just impossible, probably due to different configs from each of our computers. Even Hamachi, which was usually reliable back in the day, didn't do it that time. What I'm trying to get to is: is BGEE worth the $20 if I want to finally get a multiplayer game running? Is it stable? Does it run well? I found the new intro a bit silly and all that, but I wouldn't be really playing the SP with this one, I think. What do you guys think?
So, yeah, I think you should just wait and see first. :)
