Although you did say you would not have finished the game, which for many who have paid for something would mean that you found it unsatisfactory.
Thank you for clarification :-) And yeah, I really did find it unsatisfactory. But I found Dragon's Age unsatisfactory, yet I won't say it's a bad game (altho my issues with it were actually very similar as those with the original BG now that I think about it.)
I am admittedly a fanboy when it comes to this game. You can probably imagine better than myself how bad I will be when I play Baldur's Gate II. You were right, I have yet to get to that one but I am looking forward to it.
First of all: My mistake, I have overreacted a bit. I was tired and didn't quite notice the ';-)'. Second of all, do play BG2. It really didn't quite captivate me because ... Well it's just really, really hard to captivate me by Forgotten Realms. Still, it took what made BG the game it was and added fantastic party interactions and story (or... So I've been told, anyway, all I have seen of it was the great villian).
I'm sure I'll have a lot of fun when I get around to BG2 although I'm not sure when. I have a number of irons in the fire at the moment and I'm always changing my mind about what to play next. Speaking of which, I did pick up Betrayal at Krondor a little while back when it was on sale, I think the winter sale. So there's another one I'll find time for eventually. I'm glad to hear from you that it offers a good story. I enjoy that in a game.
