Baldur’s Gate 3 enjoys a Metascore of 97 on Metacritic. Making it the highest-rated game ever in the history of PC gaming.
In recent times, we have seen many disappointing game releases from top gaming companies. This is especially true on PC. With rare exceptions though.
Some games have had gameplay issues, while others have had design issues. A lot of them also have optimization issues, where the games have performed poorly on PCs when released. This is because their PC ports have not been that great.
So, gamers have been looking for a game that does not disappoint them. It looks like Baldur’s Gate 3 not only fits into that, but also sets a new standard for other games.
Baldur’s Gate 3 is a turn-based RPG that was released on August 3rd. It is developed by Belgian game developer Larian Studios, best known for other well known games like the Divinity series.
The was released after staying for almost three years in early access. It looks like it’s well worth it, going by the reviews so far.

There’s a good reason, too. Just look at all the reviews on the game’s critic review page. All have nothing but praise for the game. Sure, during the publication of this article, some gaming sites like IGN and Digital Trends have yet to post their scores, but don’t expect them to be too bad either.
On Metacritic, Baldur’s Gate 3 sits above great games like Half-Life 2 (96 score), Grand Theft Auto V (96), original Half-Life (96), Portal 2 (95) and others.
If not is not enough then look at OpenCritic which rates it the best game ever across all platforms. That alone speaks a lot. Not to forget, here too it sits above the likes of Super Mario Odyssey, recent The Legend of Zelda games, Red Dead Redemption 2 among others.
To add to that, if the performance of the game is concerned, its requirements are modest by modern standards. TechPowerUP did a great review to show its performance. It seems to perform quite nicely, unlike some other games we have seen these days.
