Whoever doubts that computer gaming is an art-form should play PLANESCAPE-TORMENT.

Words fail to describe the perfect symphony of brilliant ideas, emerging story-line, beautiful environments, mesmerizing music, fun gameplay and detailed coding that makes this game an unsurpassed classic!
I have yet to meet anyone who has played it and not raved about it!

NamelessOne and his companions are characters that will stay with you forever. The graphics may seem a bit outdated nowadays (they are the same as the first BALDUR's GATE, they share the same engine, Infinity); however, true RPG gamers know that graphics are not a self-sustained aim.

THIS IS NOT A NEW GAME. So do not expect an exploding eye-candy or a fast-paced game (try YouTube to check out whether this may not be your cup of tea). One has to let himself immerse into the world of the Planes and the doomed city of Sigil. But their magic shall always stay with you.

This used to be sold out game and could only be found in old stock houses and eBay. Count yourself lucky and treat yourself to this gem. Trust me, you have to have this one!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I have played many RPGs, console and PC and none come close to the brilliance of this game. It really is art. You will NOT find a game with a more diverse and memorable set of characters, the plot and dialogue is flawless and the story will invoke genuine emotion like no other game. You collect and share stories with the other charcters and help solve their problems and you learn so much about them just by talking to em. It's dark, sad and somewhat depressing at times but utterly brilliant.

I would reccomend playing through with a high intelligence and wise character to get the most from the game; you do miss out on alot of dialogue and choices if you don't. Also if you don't have high intelligence you will miss out on some of the most spectacular fmv spell effects seen - even if you only get to really use them at the very end. However you play though it's a masterpiece. The only slight negative is the initial starting area in the mortuary can drag a bit and some may stop playing before they have left it..stick with it though whatever you do.

In my opinion this is the best of all the Black Isle/Bioware games and sadly I doubt we will ever see another game like it.

How many so-so rpgs have there been down the years? That's right, a whole hell of a lot. How many good ones have there been? A decent number, enough to keep me and a lot of people like me playing. How many brilliantly written and brilliantly plotted rpgs have there been, where your moral choices are complex and make a huge difference to not only the outcome of the story, but the whole style of play throughout the 50+ hours of the game itself? How many rpgs let you resolve events in seven or eight different ways rather than just asking you to fight stuff? (though you can do that too) How many rpgs tread into such murky grey areas of personal and ethical hell and do so wilfully and mindfully? Damn few? Yeah, pretty much.

Planescape Torment is not unique. But it stands up there with only two or three other games in the genre for its multi-layered complexity, and intrinsic moral shading. It was, for it's day, a rather pretty game, with it's fascinating setting (the City of Pain) gorgeously gruesome character models and lovely spell effects. It was one the plethora of late 90's rpgs to use the Infinity Engine and of all of them it was the one to create the most beguiling and entrancing world. It had some good, if limited, voice acting and made excellent use of the concurrent AD&D rule set.

Being over a decade since its been released it has certainly started to show its age and even when new it did have some bugs which caused slowdowns and audio failures. Really though these were and are minor issues compared to what the game represented. This was a great, choice filled, crpg experience. And while there have been several games which it can be said to have influenced (Deus Ex, The Witcher, and most recently Dragon Age: Origins) I don't think that any of them are quite as brave and certainly not as original as Torment.

You may think my header for this review is just hyperbole, but like others on this page I believe this will probably never be beaten as a RPG. The reasons? Well firstly is the entrancing and highly imaginative story set in the Planescape universe (not the Forgotten Realms of which so many RPGs are based on). It is dark, deep, disturbing, sometimes humorous and always demanding from the player a lot of 'mental attention' and intellectual decisions rather than what we tend to get today with RPGs like Diablo and more recently Dragon Age which are just hack and slash fests with very little actual 'role playing'. This is how role playing games were originally meant to be before the pressures of commercial reality took their toll on them and companies like Bioware were forced to make glorified 'beat-em ups' instead. A Classic pure and simple for those of us who still are role-playing 'purists'.

I am a big fan of the Baldur's Gates and Fallouts and the name Planscape Torment kept cropping up in reviews as being another classic. The first time a played it I gave up and put it back in the drawer. The world was very unfamiliar and confusing. I wanted to fight but spent allot of time in conversations. The game didn't capture my imagination at all.

The name Planescape Torment kept cropping up still and a year later I decided to give it another go. I am glad I did. My dislikes turned out to be the games strengths. The first thing I can assure you is that when you play PST for the first time you will be discovering a new world. When was the last time you played a fantasy and it wasn't Lord Of The Rings with a twist, Mad Max with a twist or Star Wars with a twist? New worlds don't come along that often in RPG's and should be savoured. OK in the game your character has lost his memory. Not that original. It works so well with a new world to explore though. Everything that seems strange and confusing to you genuinely should with your character as well. The past character that unfolds is genuinely interesting and is pieced together through a great story. The party characters are some of the most diverse and fascinating you will find in a game. The large areas of conversation mean that conversation style attributes really do matter as much as the fighting style attributes. You are not penalised for playing it your way. Your hand isn't held as much as modern games so becoming lost in the plot and the world and mistakes are genuine possibilities. I am not going to tell you about the world in Planescape. I think it is best discovered for yourself.

I would not play this as your first RPG as it is different. I would recommend this for anyone who is looking for that difference in an RPG though. If levelling up, backpack's and party based stories are your thing, do not miss out on an absolute classic.
