It is the second most wanted game on GOG.com. For me, it has always been the first. To relive such an experience with its haunting dialogues, beautiful music and an epic storyline set in one of those little-used campaign settings of Dungeons & Dragons. Yes, the beautiful and epic Planescape: Torment is on our favorite DRM-free digital distribution center, GOG.com.
As GOG itself puts up, what is exactly so awesome about this game?
- An enthralling story, considered by many to be the best one ever told in a cRPG!
- Professional voice acting, superb music, complex and gripping dialogue that covers over 5000 pages.
- Travel through the planes of the enormous and bizarre Planescape universe.
Greatest story ever told in a cRPG? Yes, yes and an emphatic YES! Being one of those games I grew up with, Planescape: Torment reinforced my love for good ol’ Dungeons and Dragons gaming that was first introduced to me by Baldur’s Gate. Considering that this game was one of the few things missing in my collection of RPGs that enthralled me so much that I decided to go and buy an original copy (when I was a little kid, not now), this just completes an entire cycle.
However, since I had forgotten much of the original story (ironically) it’s great to see it up for download on GOG along with an assortment of downloadable stuff available after buying the game. For $9.99 this game is a definite buy.
