The game is very lore heavy and you will love it if you're into that kind of thing. The walls of text can be intimidating at first, but they turn out to be one of the best features in the game. The characters are so much more fleshed out than other games because of the text that describes them.
The combat is balanced and can be very challenging on hard and torment. The graphics are old, but the gameplay and UI are top notch. It's basically like Baldur's Gate on steroids. I love this game!
