Tyranny perfectly encapsulates what makes a role-playing game great. With superb writing, an engaging story and setting, solid mechanics and huge replay value, the new game from Obsidian Entertainment is a must play for all true RPG lovers. Tyranny isn't just about the triumph of evil: it is the triumph of role-playing games.
Amazing RPG, with great universe, characters, choices, story... It is really memorable.
A bit short, but what Obsidian did with very little money and people (even compared to PoE1 and 2) is really awesome.
Voice acting is really expensive, so of course there is very little (wich is very good for everyone that doesn't speak English natively, 90% of humankind, because English voices with Chinese or Spanish text is a chore) please look at the game budget. Also, don't play classic CRPG if you don't like reading, should be obvious.
If you like roleplaying games that focus on decisions with consequences as well as moral dilemmas or is simply a fan of adventures like Planescape: Torment, you will find yourself drawn into the world of Tyranny.
The story, and the characters within, blend perfectly, and the expertly crafted world building is something we don’t see in RPGs as of late. While Tyranny might not be as good as I had hoped it would be, it is still a welcome addition to any classic RPG fans’ library, and Obsidian should be proud of the product that they’ve released to the world. Sure, there are things that could be better, but in the grand scheme of things, Tyranny is a brilliant jaunt through a land riveted by evil. For once, it’s good to be bad.
Tyranny, is fun little throwback to an older style of game. It does it well and it does it without having to cash in on a particular brand or nostalgic sentiment. It presents a brand new world in a compelling and understandable way. It showcases a much more nuanced take on being the bad guy than games tend to do. I found myself reminded more of Unrest than Baldur's Gate while playing this game and that is a good thing.
Tyranny offers a few fresh, well-thought-out mechanics and fragments of really engrossing story, between longer periods of terribly boring combat. Open ending is not good, either - all we get after 40 hours is a suggestion that the interesting bits were saved for a sequel.
One of the best Obsisan RPGs here. Tyranny is really re-playable, in first 2 hours you will make decision that cut half of game content, and some other choises can lead you to different road with different locations and quests. This game is not about many ways to solve the situation, usually you have only genocide path. But some solutions in this game will change a lot. (like i said before). And a lot of other thing that was written in other reviews. 10.
