Sad to say that I don't have the time to spend on either games :cry: I spent lots of my free time play BG1, never quite got into BG2 but still put in about 20 hours in.

Looks exactly the same as the old games to me... Just like MDK2HD did.

Those sprites look noticeably better to me.

iOS? Okay, now we are getting interesting. I thought this was just another PC/Xbox rehash.

I'm not usually a fan of these iOS ports, but if they do it well, then I'm in. The game is very mouse -click heavy, so it should translate well to touch interface. For whatever reason, the companies usually contracted to churn out these ports tend to do a poor job.

I doubt this will hit consoles at all... the ios actually gets a meh from me, but more options is always better. It is coming on pc as well, it just looks like they are now also expanding to ios.

Really looking forward to it. About 2 years ago I did a complete playthrough of both games and ALL of their add ons. I racked up close to 300 hours of game time, yet even now I'm still contemplating going back through as a different character class :lol:
