    For anyone that likes a great story, it's worth taking a trip back in time.

    Rated on April 01, 2008 by 190586385885857957282413308806

    After hearing so many RPG fans hold a single game in such high regard topic after topic, post after post, I knew that I had to pick up this game and see what all of the fuss is about. The game I'm tal...

    A standard by which all RPGs can be judged

    Rated on September 16, 2004 by TazmanianD

    This game is at the very top of my all-time favorite games list although I realize that it's a bit dated by now. Perhaps the best part of this game is the writing that went into not just the story,...

    Let's be clear: this game has been out for years and while the graphics may not be up to par compared to today's games, it stands the test of time like other RPG masterpieces such as the early Final F...

    Astounding storytelling

    Rated on April 21, 2006 by azeira_10389

    WARNING: If you're only into combat-heavy, hack-and-slash and run-and-gun games, and the idea of reading a dialogue longer than five lines scares you, then Torment is not for you. You CAN go hacking y...

    This game is so incredible. It may be my favorite game of all time. It is definetly the best RPG of all time in my opinion. It's a fairly long game and I actually played it twice. The second time ...

    Complex, full story line and characters.

    Rated on July 17, 2006 by megafeck

    Torment takes a dark ride through the unusual worlds of the Planescape multi-verse. With the familiar feel of Dungeons and Dragons this game escapes the cliches of playing the effete elves and dour dw...

    Planescape: Impeccable

    Rated on May 07, 2004 by Atomic_Mutant

    Planescape: Torment is the game that was unfortunately played by a few yet had left enough impression among the press to garner some distinction of fame. It was indeed 'one of the best games that no o...

    For those who like substance over style!

    Rated on September 14, 2009 by obsidian031

    Not to say of course that the game looks bad - far from it. Like FF7, this was one of the best looking RPG's when it came out, due heavily (but not entirely) to its gorgeous cut scenes, spell animatio...

    A 7-year old game surpassing even current RPGs ....

    Rated on July 25, 2006 by heavylurker

    Torment has a lot of enduring qualities: the story, the characters, the sound, the music, the setting ... so far only the graphics are a bit behind current games, but RPG's don't necessarily have to...
