PC Review of Planescape: Torment

Planescape: Torment is another carefully “enhanced” gem of Black Isles golden age. Recently updated with a 4k interface, a remastered soundtrack, and the help of the lead developer Chris Avellone (worked on numerous classic RPG titles, Prey, Fallout: NV, and more), this classic title is ready to be enjoyed by today’s gamers. But don’t let the pretty paint job fool you: this is still a story-rich tactical RPG that’ll knock your socks off!

Planescape: Torment doesn't just tell you a story, it makes you part of it. You awaken as the Nameless One, covered in scars and tattoos but with no recollection of who you are or where you came from. And this will be your objective in this game: to search for answers. You’ll travel through the dirty, debaucherous streets of Sigil where you have just awakened, into the mysterious Outer Planes, and eventually to Hell itself. You’ll meet companions like a succubus that can kill with a kiss and a walking/talking suit of armor as you search for answers in this weird and mysterious world, and you’ll find that destiny is hard to escape.

Being patient and ready to read a lot are prerequisites for enjoying and succeeding in Planescape: Torment. You will have to explore, interact, read and learn if you want to beat this game; quests are not simple fetch-and-return missions with waypoints guiding your path. It’s a challenge well worth the reward!

Puzzles like this one will stand in the way of your search for answers.
