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 The graphics may seem a bit outdated nowadays (they are the same as the first BALDUR's GATE, they share the same engine, Infinity); however, true RPG gamers know that graphics are not a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!
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.
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.
A run-of-the-mill RPG set in this world would have been a pleasure to play. Planescape is something far, far better. You awake in a mortuary with no memory, paranoid messages from yourself tattooed all over your body, and a smart-aleck talking skull who says he's your friend. Oh, and immortality. Finding out who you are, and what awful thing you've done to yourself, will occupy you for the rest of this very long game and take you to some very strange places.
What's most remarkable is that you explore this mesmerising environment mostly by reading. Click on a character and a labyrinthine dialogue unfolds, leading you down forking and twisting paths to unexpected discoveries. Planescape is made out of words. Over 800,000 of them, all told, woven together to tell a story that is adult, intelligent, funny and sad. And winding through it all, a recurring and, indeed, tormenting question: What can change the nature of a man?
This is the original, buggy release, so Google 'Planescape patches' for patches to fix all the bugs and unlock all sorts of 'lost' content.
By today's standards the graphics are low-res and cramped, and the interface clunky. For a game woven out of words, this is not a problem. Play Planescape: Torment for about an hour, and it's the RPGs of today that start to feel dated.
