Planescape: Torment

  • Planescape: TormentBuy on Amazon - Copy URL
  • Developed by Black Isle Studios (1999) on PC
  • Role-Playing > W-Style RPG
  • Planescape: Torment is set in the Planescape "multiverse" of AD&D, a setting which consists of various planes of existence (i.e. alternate dimensions), the creatures which live in them (such as devils, modrons, and even deities), and the magic which infuses the multiverse. This is the first video game to be set in the Planescape universe. The first part of Planescape: Torment takes place in the city of Sigil, said to be at the very center of the multiverse, atop an infinitely tall spire, and connecting the planes with each other using magical portals. The city is overseen by the powerful Lady of Pain. Sigil also contains fifteen factions which control different functions of the city related to each group's world view, each striving for further control of the city.

10Classic!

Best, deepest, most compelling RPG story ever.

10Classic!

What an epic personal story of an amnesiac GOD (literally)....virtually flawless. From the first scene in the mortuary to THAT epic final confrontation with the 'Transcendent One'......so many moments to cherish. At least three scenes will stay with me for many a long time. First THAT 'Ravel Puzzlewell' meeting scene and second my personal favourite 'The Sensorium' part. And Last but not the least the scene in which the transcendent one kills Fall-From-Grace and the interaction between them. "What can change the mentality of a person towards video games" ???? PS:T of course!!

7.5Great

This game has absolutely amazing writing and unique ideas, but the gameplay and graphics are extremely boring.

Like with Deus Ex, only played this a couple of years ago. Back then I wasn't really into and wasn't particularly good at RPGs, so it's for the better that our paths crossed this late. The combat might not be the best, but the writing...oh boy the writing is nothing short of sublime. Seriously, it's one of the best written video games ever. From the world, the plot and characters to the dialogue and lore. I don't know how Black Isle pulled it off, but they put together something incredible.

9.5Classic!

Without a doubt, the story this game tells is the greatest I have ever experienced in any form of media. It's just phenomenal. The world the game depicts is more detailed and creative than any I've seen before, with it's own set of genius laws and logic. The characters are the some of the most 3 dimensional ones in gaming, each with their own thorough back-stories and unique set of morals and views. The plot takes the player on an incredible journey, not only with clever twists, but by dwelling deep into many mature themes in ways I'd never thought of.

PT comprises some of the most complex/detailed/fascinating worlds and characters ever to be seen in a video game. The heavy focus and genius execution of writing and story make this game timeless. One of the best and most immersive RPG-experiences ever created!

Well, are we all dead? Influenced by best FF games, much darker fantasy awaits

9.5Classic!

The depth of the script is incomparable.

9.0Fantastic

Torment's gameplay balance is lacking compared to it's main contempories (Baldurs Gate and Icewind Dale), but it's greatness is all in its storytelling. It's full of memorable situations, moments and characters, and is easily the best story I've seen in a game.
