As "spiritual successor" to the Baldur's Gate series, BioWare's upcoming fantasy RPG has lot to live up to. Not to mention a console port expectation that no PC RPG has ever fulfilled.
It doesn't help that the game is being touted as a "new" take on the fantasy genre, or that the PC ship date was shoved back to coincide with the console release. But BioWare may yet deliver on all their promises. They have all the ingredients of a good game, plus some genuinely interesting ideas that haven't made it into any other game quite yet.
