    If you haven’t played the game yet, fish out some cashish from your pocket and fix that serious oversight immediately. The work done by Beamdog on the remaster does not justify the purchase on its own, but Planescape: Torment is still the best RPG game ever created. [06/2017, p.46]

    Planescape: Torment Enhanced Edition brings an incredible list of improvements to one of the most enduring and unique RPGs ever written. Simply put, Planescape: Torment is not like anything that came before it or since, and this Enhanced Edition has updated it nicely.

    Beamdog has enhanced the core game with no affectations or game changing alterations, allowing Torment to speak for itself without being muffled by the clanking and crashing of technical clunk. The result is a spectacular adventure for those willing to accept its various eccentricities and advancing years.

    Picked nits aside, there is no better time to explore the world of Planescape with this enhanced edition. The content of the game has aged extremely well, providing almost endless hours of top notch exploration, dialogue and story. Beamdog has done a great job with getting it running better on modern machines while not going overboard. It ran without a hitch on my humble, underpowered laptop. As a must play for returning fans and newcomers alike, there is no real reason to skip Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition. This is PC RPG gaming done right.

    The enhanced edition of the glamorous gaming classic invokes mixed feelings. It brings a more modern look and greater users comfort, but some changes don't fully improve the game. Additionally, the enhanced version offers an original content without any changes, which is a warning to all original game owners who were looking forward to new experiences.

    Absolutely worth it. Even for people used to running modded games.

    First, for those who already played it, it's the same game you remember, but hassle free. It just works out of the box, and after playing with the the Enhanced Edition UI, you'll never go back to the old one. Not only is that annoying radial menu gone, but you have many quality of life improvements (such as the quickloot feature, unmemorized spells scroll being highlighted in green, etc.), more detailed breakdowns of stats, gorgeous font rendering (which is a must for a text-heavy game like this). For anyone worried about Beamdog "tempering with perfection", every change has been run by the original lead designer Chris Avelonne, who took the opportunity to review which bugs (from Quinn's fixpack) were actually bugs, and which were not. Chris considers this the best PST version, and the canon one after he's done an editing pass to resolve plot inconsistencies, typos, and other outstanding bugs that always annoyed him. If anything, his word should matter over that of haters.

    But even if you like dealing with mods, this one has a lot of feature you'll love. The enhanced engine means that the game is MUCH MUCH more moddable, with several new opcodes, and cleaner implementations of existing stuff. Old mods like Unfinished Business are being updated for it, and new ones will be made.

    One of the best Western RPGs ever made. The game has an incredible cast and story, coupled with excellent gameplay. Do you enjoy Baldurs gate,One of the best Western RPGs ever made. The game has an incredible cast and story, coupled with excellent gameplay. Do you enjoy Baldurs gate, Icewind dale, Fallout, or any isometric game for that matter? If you answered yes, maybe, or unsure, then get this game.

    Now what does the EE add? Proper resolution alone makes the game worth it if you are using a modern machine. Many people will critique it for not adding a ton of new content, however many people realize that there is no need to change perfection. The game was a 10/10 for its time, this new edition is allowing us to enjoy that on modern machines, with updated interface and resolution to make it proper.

    They modernized a classic RPG to work on modern PC's and 4K displays! This is an old school D&D rpg, but unlike Baldur's Gate and IcewindThey modernized a classic RPG to work on modern PC's and 4K displays! This is an old school D&D rpg, but unlike Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale (which take place in Faerun), Planescape: Torment is set in the bizarre world of Planescape in the city of Sigil.

    However, word of warning to those who have not played this classic rpg - their is waaaay less combat than in Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale and waaaaaay more dialogue than Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale. Since this is an old school rpg from the 90's, most of the dialogue is in text boxes with very little voice acting (small portions of the dialogue are voice-acted, but the majority is just text).

    The game tells a very intriguing tale and has a great setting and amazing characters, but be prepared for LOTS of reading and NOT a lot of combat.

    If you set your expectations right going in, you may discover what a pleasure this game truly is!!!

Улучшен графический интерфейс, добавлены новые опции и устранено большинство ошибок. Теперь игра и выглядит приятнее, и работает стабильно. Считаю данное переиздание лучшей работой Beamdog. Из недостатков могу отметить отвратительный ИИ сопартейцев, который бы стоило исправить, но Beamdog решили оставить без изменений. В незначительной степени присутствует разрыв логических связей, вроде бы Chris Avellone обещал исправить подобные недоразумение, но на деле остались пробелы. Expand

    One of the biggest bummers about this game is the load times whenever you transition from an area, I honestly got up to walk across my houseOne of the biggest bummers about this game is the load times whenever you transition from an area, I honestly got up to walk across my house and grab my laptop to write a review and the dang game was still loading when I got back. It would be fine if I was playing it on an old amiga or something, but thats not a throwback element you want to incorporate into a revered game. Other then that, there is some excellent story telling and character development but I feel like it gets bogged down in it owns cleverness, Expand

    Man, part of me really envies these Beamdog hacks! Must be GREAT to feel yourself competent/talented enough to actually add ANYTHING of worthMan, part of me really envies these Beamdog hacks! Must be GREAT to feel yourself competent/talented enough to actually add ANYTHING of worth to a game like PS:T! Wish I was capable of deluding myself to such extremes. At least Avellone, who have to put food on the table since he is freelance, did all the heavy lifting so he didn't allow any fan fiction tier degeneracy to mar the narrative of this timeless gem. But looking at that UI that Beamdog programmed with their feet I can tell that they have not lost thei magic touch from Siege of Dragonspear.

    So this "Enhanced Edition" amount to a shameless cash grab to finance the next big project that the masterminds at Beamdog will gratify us in their effort to eradicate the toxic patriarchy. Offered at double the price of the original masterpiece, this low effort is a worthless addition from a parasite company.

    Quote from Joewashere:

    To make matters worse, they've also removed the original edition of the game from the store and effectively doubled its price by bundling it together with the twice as expensive "Enhanced Edition".
    The end result? Customers now have to pay 30€ for what used to cost 10€, a prime example of despicably unethical price gouging.
