Baldur's Gate 3 fights are extremely well thought out and super interesting, whether you are fighting a boss or a goblin horde! You are free to do whatever you want like in a paper role-playing game where the limit is your imagination. So in addition to casting your spells and using your weapons, you can hide, jump or push enemies from the top of a cliff. The verticality is also very present, that is to say that you will be able to carry out combats on several stages, bringing a great depth to these.
The only downside is that the system is based on dungeons and dragons 5, the rules are a bit complicated if you are not used to it! If necessary, do not hesitate to look at our Complete guide to Baldur's Gate 3 !
Your game will be intimately linked to your decisions, whether you finally have to kill the person who just saved your life or to avenge the poor innocent orphans, you will be able to do absolutely anything you want in Baldur's Gate 3, as long as you accept the consequences. It's really a great strength of the game, the choices are multiple, whether they are related to your character (history, race) or to yourself (him, I don't like him). This also gives a great replayability to the game, you can for example decide to make a nice campaign then nasty.
The creation of your characters is almost unlimited, you can choose from many classes: Cleric, Warrior, Rogue, Rogue, Warlock or Magician, each one being completely different from the others. To combine, you can also choose your Dwarf, Elf, Halfelin, Human, Drow, Tiefelin, etc. race, then choose your story.
You can of course customize the entire design of your character, whether through tattoos, shapes or colors of all parts of the body!
An air of deja vu
For those who are familiar with the Divinity Original Sin series, some elements will be present. We can note for example the countless number of useless objects that you can pick up, the limit of four characters or the turn-based game mode. These elements are not from the Baldur's Gate 3 franchise and may disturb if you want a third episode in the pure lineage of the ancients. Also, even if the overall design of the game is at the top, I can not help but find the same style as on DOS2. Personally that didn't pose a problem for me, even if 6 characters could have been very nice!
