Planescape: Torment Enhanced Edition
Top Critic Average
This is a great port of two very influential western RPGs, though newcomers may be put off by the old school design.
Planescape: Torment Enhanced Edition brings an incredible list of improvements to one of the most enduring and unique RPGs ever written. Simply put, Planescape: Torment is not like anything that came before it or since, and this Enhanced Edition has updated it nicely.
Beamdog has enhanced the core game with no affectations or game changing alterations, allowing Torment to speak for itself without being muffled by the clanking and crashing of technical clunk. The result is a spectacular adventure for those willing to accept its various eccentricities and advancing years.
Modern RPGs owe much to Planescape: Torment, but that doesn't mean it's excellent by today's standards.
Picked nits aside, there is no better time to explore the world of Planescape with this enhanced edition.
Planescape Torment: Enhanced Edition once redefined what an RPG could be, and getting a look one of gaming's greats is nothing if not a treat. Even if it does show its age from time to time.
The greatest CRPG of the Windows era with some updates and controls from HELL. Buy it.
If you like going deep into the lore of the Dungeons and Dragons multiverse then I can't think of a better game for you.
The original Planescape: Torment is the very first game I ever reviewed here. It was an awful writeup that was eventually wiped from existence. Now, eight years and 499 reviews later, I finally have the writing ability required to describe why this game is so important to me and many others.
Beamdog's modernization of a cult classic in the form of Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition is an extraordinary novel suffering from the misfortune of being trapped in the form of an underwhelming video game.
