8.5 / 10.0

The outstanding classic-style RPG Pillars of Eternity makes a surprisingly virtuosic transition to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 with the Complete Edition, bringing both systems all of the content that's been released on the PC version so far. For an RPG of its complexity, it's surprising how pleasingly intuitive its gamepad control scheme is, and its easily legible text makes it feel just as good to play from the couch as from a desk. It's a memorable experience that suffers from only a few technical hiccups, most significantly its long and frequent loading times.

A surprisingly good port of a purposefully old school computer role-player, that proves even the most PC of games can work on consoles.

Despite the long load screens, I enjoyed my time with Pillars of Eternity, and look forward to continuing my journey through Eora. The setting and characters are wonderful, and anyone looking for a meaty, densely plotted RPG will find a lot to like. Simply put, games like this rarely get made, and seeing one on a console is like finding a unicorn egg in your cornflakes. If you have any interest in a playing a game like Baldur's Gate or Planescape: Torment again, you'd be doing yourself a disservice not picking this one up.

Ultimately, Pillars of Eternity is a stellar entry into its genre, but one that won't win over people who are not already fans. It is huge and richly detailed, with more history than some actual periods of real life, and a rare amount of care and attention. It's probably a better experience on a PC, but it's still definitely worth playing on console if it's your only option.

A game that will know how to reward those players who decide to invest time in immersing themselves in the history and to be carried away by mechanics with which Obsidian has distilled the essence of the classic occidental RPGs.

Obsidian's modern masterpiece is less shiny on console, but still a sprawling RPG worth exploring

An epic adventure in absolutely every sense, Pillars of Eternity arrives on PS4 in highly impressive form and confidently stakes its claim as one of the best RPGs of the year.
