Critic Reviews for Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire - Ultimate Edition

It's the amazing RPG of 2018 with all the systems and mechanics well adapted to console controls, with a superb writing and translation. But, all that great things get muddier because of the long and habitual loading times: 60-90 seconds for every single time we cross a door, change area... Until a patch fixes it, it's a pain in the ass.

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire - Ultimate Edition brings the epic CRPG to consoles, and the majority of it is excellent, although there are far too many load screens that seem to go on forever.

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire - Ultimate Edition is a fantastic role-playing game with an interesting story, deep quests and a great world. It will definitely please all fans of classic RPGs. This is the case when the walkthrough can be made more convenient, but do not lose the depth of mechanics and complexity of tactics. The flexible features of the dialog system allow you to play it in completely different ways, and the only thing that spoils the impression is technical problems on consoles. But if you play it on a PC, you can safely add one point to the final score.

Pillars of Eternity II is a 9/10 RPG tragically trapped inside a 7/10 game. The quality of the writing and the world-building is second to none, and the tried and tested combat mechanics are meticulously tuned, but the outrageous loading times and other technical issues are too upsetting to ignore. It's like sitting in a fine Italian restaurant, sipping a glass of wine and nibbling on breadsticks, enjoying your date, and then the waiter comes over and drops a dead dog on the table. Wrong table, mate. I ordered the carbonara. Now get that dead dog out of my sight.

A soaring achievement in the genre, very minor technical issues aren't enough to detract from the fact that Pillars of Eternity 2 Deadfire: Ultimate Edition is the first must-have game of 2020 and the finest RPG in an age. Adventures don't come much more essential than this.

The console port of Obsidian's Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire has the same great story, characters, and gameplay of the PC version but is marred by technical problems and load times.
