Planescape: Torment & Icewind Dale Enhanced Edition Pack
Top Critic Average
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.
All in all, I can definitely recommend this package for fans of this genre.
A formidable twin-pack of classic RPGs guaranteed to wreck your social life, it's really the manifestation of Planescape: Torment on console for the first time which stands as the real highlight - bringing its stellar writing, extraordinary setting and deep characters to a whole new audience. This twin pack is a must-have for fans of RPGs everywhere.
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.

Together, these two make for a pretty essential addition to your Switch's RPG library.
Some minor visual elements don't translate to the Switch as smoothly as they could, but Planescape: Torment and Icewind Dale: Enhanced Editions sucks you into all the most captivating fantasy adventures.
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.
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, 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.
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.
