Hmmm...online reviews point out the wonky controls. (Hemming and hawing...)

Wow... I do not own an iPad or anticipate getting an iPad in the near future; but Baldur's Gate is so awesome I almost want to lock in the license just because it's on sale. It was a really great game on PC with a lot of depth. Especially on iOS you won't find many party based RPGs with good overall plot (lots of narrative detail) and tense combat like this.

It's too bad they wouldn't figure out a way to get it on iPhone/iPod.

Can anyone comment on how much space is needed? I'm assuming 3.7-4.x


Edit: Well, after 5.99 and over thirty apps deleted, (4.2 gb) I finally was able to start the download! I hope the game is at least a bit good considering all the apps I deleted

Screw it. Too big. If Apple wants any more app sales, they better offer a MAJOR increase in storage size options. In 2009 I had 32 gig ipod touch. In 2013 I have a 32 gig ipad mini. In 2009, the average game was probably about 14 megs. In 2013, it's probably 60. The largest app when I first used the appstore was a hundred megs or so. Now....


You get my point. Or at least allow data management without syncing/itunes.

Hell, I have 600 megs of SOUNDS for one single app.

I find that if you download it in iTunes on your computer then transfer it over you don't need to free up as much space.
