    Let me start this review by dishing out some undeniable facts 1) I don't assign 9.5s often 2) I hate reading (generally) 3. I avoid almost all games that look dated 4) I usually enjoy having a superficial-pretty ma... Read Full Review

  • Review Score:9.5

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

    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 talking about is Planes... Read Full Review

    A standard by which all RPGs can be judged

    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, but every conversat... Read Full Review

    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 Fantasy games or Fall... Read Full Review

    Astounding storytelling

    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 your way through the ... Read Full Review

    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 was easier because I... Read Full Review

    Complex, full story line and characters.

    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 dwarves to really give... Read Full Review

    Simply the best rpg ever made and one of the best game of all times too

    Planescape: Impeccable

    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 one played', I recomm... Read Full Review

    For those who like substance over style!

    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 animations and backgrounds. ... Read Full Review

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

    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 rely heavily on gra... Read Full Review
