Planescape: Torment and Icewind Dale: Enhanced Editions on Switch is incredibly dense. These are enormous and very long journeys to experience, and they have a substantial initial barrier to them that might put off newcomers.

There's no denying that Planescape: Torment and Icewind Dale are classic AD&D RPGs in all their glory. Don't stop here if you're looking for remasters. If you're looking to play these classics for the first time or want to enjoy these adventures on the bus ride home then welcome back! Even after 20 years these games still hold some magic and these Enhanced Editions on the Nintendo Switch are faithful and competent ports!

GREAT - Although the games look a bit dated even with the visual enhancements, Planescape: Torment and Icewind Dale Enhanced Editions are still fun to play today. Veterans of the PC games should feel right at home here and the ability to play on the go is great. Newcomers may want to push the difficulty down for their first time through.

Planescape: Torment and Icewind Dale are isometric western RPGs with pre-rendered backgrounds. If this style of game is your cup of tea, then these are both classics, especially the creative, dialogue-heavy Planescape: Torment.

Icewind Dale, Planescape Torment and Baldur’s Gate were never easy, but they are legendary. They are games that need to be experienced by anyone who calls himself a true fan of RPGs, but those people probably already own it on PC and can enjoy them using a mouse.

If you are an old school RPG gamer, you SHOULD buy this bundle, period. But if you are not, think twice before going for it as you might end up either loving it or hating it.

Icewind Dale and Planescape: Torment are undeniably great games but even with updated graphics and improvements to control schemes, they show their age and are not well suited to home consoles.

Planescape Torment & Icewind Dale adequately explore the weirder elements of Dungeons & Dragons.

Icewind Dale and Planescape: Torment land on the Nintendo Switch after their original premiere many years ago. It's always good to see relevant titles getting re-released on the Switch, in this case there are elements which still stand very well, such as the plot, the customization level and the huge amount of content. On the other hand, visually these games have not aged very well and the experience is not very well suited for newcomers or for a handheld format.

For me personally when it comes to Dungeons & Dragons, I think I shall stick to tradition. A party of 6 friends, with my Volcano dice-set and my Tiefling fighter named Dreasmonde. He’s determined to kill Strahd with his very helpful Siri-sword named Daisy, and his Iron-Man style Kazan armour… all to impress the love of his life, Esmerelda!

All in all these games are truly a blast from the past, and back in their day (1999 / 2000) were some of the best RPG outings you could find on the PC. Today though, I can't say that they are anything more than a nostalgic cash grab. There are no updates here and the amount of bugs I had to get through is just plain unacceptable.

Planescape has a terrible bug that freezes the game when you try to rest in one of the earlier areas of the game, and this is still the least of its problems. It's possible that the original developers of these games made them for an audience that would be familiar with the mechanics or have the patience to spend hours figuring out the systems at play. 20 years on, these games continue to be filled with brilliant story-telling, but what they really need to tell you is how to actually play.
