Baldur’s Gate 3 PS5 Review - A Critical Success - The Koalition

Josh Limage of The Koalition writes: People these days more often tend to forget the history of gaming. Whether they deem it important or they are just consumed by the next thing, we sometimes forget the influence of the games that set the foundations for the titles we love today. For example, the RPG as we know it would be nothing if not for the two men who created Dungeons & Dragons back in 1971. Even today, the tabletop game is played across the world with some campaigns lasting years and countless memories being made amongst friends.

An outstanding turn-based RPG and a very strong game of the year contender.

MrChow666255d ago

I'm having a blast, this is a real rpg

Crows90255d ago

I've heard act 3 is a mess still so I'm waiting for it to be optimized better.

It's the only reason I spent any points for Gamepass on PC to play sterfield in the meantime. Probably going to beeline through the content there so I can play a better game like sea of stars

How's act 3 as far as you know? Any fixes to performance?

MrChow666254d ago

I'm 20 hours in, still in the first act. the game is packed with great quests, decisions, great dialogue and combat is so much fun. I havent had any issues, it runs very good so far on ps5, I hope they fix whatever issues act 3 has by the time I reach that point in the story

myfathersbastard255d ago

I’m like 75hrs in and I am not even technically IN Balders Gate yet. This games so good. I haven’t been this absorbed into a game in years.
My game of the year. I’m sure I’ll love Spider-Man 2 and starfield when I get to it. But I can already tell nothings else will do it for me like this game.

LOGICWINS255d ago

Damn, that's a hell of a recommendation 😳

myfathersbastard255d ago

Well I mean, I was expecting it to be good. And it exceeded my expectations.

MrChow666254d ago

it is amazing, pure video game joy

MrDead255d ago

Amazing game that everyone who loves rpgs should play. Surprising that the player count is still so high on Steam, currently 100,000 more players than Starfield!

vikingland1255d ago

My whole family is playing this on ps5. Five of us in total my wife and 3 adult kids, myself. All of us love it.

jznrpg255d ago (Edited 255d ago )

I asked my wife who only plays 2D Castlevania and PSVR2 to play co-op with me and she said she would try it . I’ll buy in a few weeks here have to finish up some games first

Black-Helghast255d ago

you have a very nice wife. I haven't played a couch co-op with mine since diablo 3 so I might try this once I get bored of Diablo 4 (my wife didn't like the darker tone of Diablo 4, that's why she's not playing it with me :'c )

vikingland1255d ago

My wife plays on her own ps5 and a nice 17inch portable monitor. I have the tv and my ps5 and we sit next to each other in our recliners. And we play Diablo IV that way also.

Fascinating
If anyone is interested, I will never beat X-COM on the hardest difficulty
For a list of games I will never complete on a specific difficulty

Michiel198925d ago

I can't really remember if I tried xcom 1 on the hardest difficulty but I gave xcom 2 on the hardest difficulty and ironman plenty of shots and it just seemed impossible. I don't often give up, but that game beat me.

anast25d ago

No real examples on why honor mode was too difficult. What I mean by this is there was no mention of the builds and gear he/she was using or classes and races.

Nittdarko25d ago

I mean I understand, after 14 attempts (non cheese) me and 2 friends finally beat it, It's really not for your everyday party adventurers

Don't get me wrong, a casual player could easily google (BG3 cheese builds) and Moon druid or Tavern brawler their way to victory with some ease, but going in playing it blind or telling yourself not to break the game and play normally is never going to end well at all.

Funny as well because Divinity Original Sin 2's honor mode was a fraction of the difficulty of BG3.

Popsicle25d ago (Edited 25d ago )

I won’t either. I am a dirty save scummer who definitely lacks honor on my dice rolls and checks. Not turning TAV into a squid just because I wanted a few parasites burrowed into his brain. Lol

Even Though Larian Is Done With Baldur's Gate 3, I Believe The Game Deserves DLC

Danish from eXputer: "DLC for Baldur's Gate 3 could resolve some unanswered questions and offer more sought-after content for what is otherwise one of the greatest RPGs in recent memory."

They made their point on DLC. Respect that.

FACTUAL evidence29d ago

See this is what damn near killed gaming in the first place, DLC! I respect a good game that’s already heavily content driven. Whatever happened to having a good game, playing it from start to finish, and then enjoying it for what it was and waiting for a sequel with a whole new outlook? I hate the fact that there are people out there willing to get nickeled and dimed by developers then complain about how we get pelted with unnecessary dlc.

I feel more devs need to do what they are doing. Tbh, I couldn’t care less if dlc was gone completely. I could go as far as saying dlc ruins game preservation as well. Not going to go too deep into that but basically Baldur’s Gate devs gets my thumb of approval.
