Critic Reviews for Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire - The Forgotten Sanctum

A well-balanced and lovingly made final DLC.

Deadfire's last DLC pack is easily the strongest, though still a bit short.

While it doesn't offer much in the way of closure, The Forgotten Sanctum is a satisfyingly eccentric expansion with Cronenbergian elements and an atmosphere vaguely reminiscent of Planescape: Torment.

Third DLC offers adequate challenge, but there should be more maps

Review in Slovak | Read full review

Amongst Deadfire's three DLCs, The Forgotten Sanctum is probably the best, as it understands the strengths of the core game much better, with a greater balance between battles, storytelling, and role-playing.

The Forgotten Sanctum is a DLC that meets both of its predecessors in the middle, and often feels like a bit of a hodge-podge, conflicted and unsettled about the approach it takes to reach the end-game. Fortunately, that same end-game leaves multiple, interesting questions open for the future of Pillars of Eternity, and speaks to Obsidian’s future ambitions for the series. It’s just a shame the road to get there is quite often disrupted and ever so slightly unsure of itself.
