Planescape Tormnet

 

Placescape Torment is an Advanced Dungeons and Dragons game set in the Planescape world. The game is from Interplay and Black Isle, the same people who made the best-selling game hits of Baldur's Gate 1 and 2 as well as Icewind Dale. Although this game...

Different interface, more story driven

Not like the other D&D games

Planescape Torment -- A Black Isle Product

 

Torment, a Black Isle title with the Dungeons and Dragons series, is a 4 CD disk set game that will thrill you completely. I am not one for the D&D, Baldurs Gate, etc... type of games, but Torment was a wonder to play. This was the first Advanced D&D...

great graphics and storyline

too many quests to follow, veers away from original idea

On Of The CRPG's I've Ever PLayed!

 

Torment is a traditional role-playing game with an uncommonly detailed story and first-rate graphics and sound. It's set in the complex and interesting Advanced Dungeons & Dragons universe of Planescape, which is a patchwork of wildly different...

Planescape Did Not Torment Me Quite As Much As I Had Hoped

 

I like to think of myself as a hardened RPG veteran in both the computerized realm and the land of pen and paper, but for the most part I have been tethered firmly to the Dungeons & Dragons category.

Lovely graphics with wonderfully drawn areas. Engrossing plot. Items, creatures and

Not enough digitized speech. LOTS of reading and low on action. Not enough Item variety

If you are searching for a good Rpg, your search is over!

 

First of all, i would like to explain rpgs. For those of you who are already familiar with this concept, skip to the next paragraph. Rpgs or roleplaying games are called this because during them the game you take the rule of a character. You get to...

great story, you feel as if you really are the character

Planescape: A work of literary scope

 

Sit down, here by the fire. Let me tell you of a great work of literature.

Stunning writing, gorgeous graphics and fun to play to boot

Very long -- requires a major time commitment

Consumer review by:

A Torment to learn, but we love it more for that

 

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 you a something new to explore....

Complex, full story line and characters

Can be confusing and difficult to learn, No multi-player

Choose Your Own Adventure

 

I remember back in the day playing Dungeons and Dragons with all of my friends. We would try to follow the rules, and have even more fun breaking them. Every since then I have always been a big fan of computer role-playing games. However, I have found...

Great visuals, great story, lots of fun

A game even girls can play.

 

Okay, I'll be brutally honest. I like playing computer games, but I'm not very good at them. I don't have a strategy-centered mind, and I can't handle spinning tilt-a-whirling 3D games. Sure, maybe I'm missing out, but that's the truth of the matter.

Fantastic world, great characters, just plain fun to play

Game sometimes eats system resources and requires restart

Geek heaven on 4 CDs

 

Speaking as someone who was weaned on gaming by Advanced Dungeons and Dragons (none of that "basic" crapola for me, no-sir), the Black Isle series of AD&D games are massively welcome in my gaming time. Baldur's Gate redefined the AD&D computer game...

Superb gameplay, graphics, plot, world

No multiplayer
