There isn't anything that is as good BG, but you could check out Dungeon Hunter HD, and Underworlds for now. Also in the upcoming games is Pocket Rpg which looks promising. Hope that helps

Thanks, already finished those 2 titles.

Man these companies really need to get with it. All those old bioware games would be heaven on the iPad, and they could make some good $$$ porting them over. I figure they would have done this by now.

Maybe we need to start a petition or something

The Shadow Sun is not exactly what you're looking for, but it's being made by Aland Miranda's company. Miranda, as you sure know, produced Baldur's Gate II.

I'm not sure which you mean--the PC and console BG games play totally differently--I much prefer the PC games. Assuming that is what you meant, I remember Rimelands having a REAL strong BG feel, and highly suggest picking it up.

There is an emulator that could be ported with apples approval probably that could play infinity engine games:


It's already been ported to Mac os x.

I'm not sure if it's even an emu or a game engine.
