Summary

This is what every role player was looking for on a PC...

The Good

Forget Neverwinter Nights... Forget Final Fantasy... THIS is what an RPG should be! In this game YOU can choose what you will be, if you'll act as a good-hearted angel or a hellish demon, if you'll be a skull-crusher fighter or a more stylish wizard (with the BTW most original spells you'll ever see in a D&D computer game). And your choiches WILL eventually change the story, so you'll be playing the game again and again, only to see what will be the outcome if... And, unlike the 99.99% of computer RPGs, this time you can really perform your character like in your favourite pencil&paper RPG. Think about this: you can beat the game fighting only two, perhaps three times, but you'll still be the strongest man in the multiverse, and you'll had the most deep experience ever in a computer RPG.

The Bad

The fact that a Torment 2 doesn't exist... And perhaps, the confusion of some battles... But nothing serious.

The Bottom Line

This game is not so popular as the Baldur's Gate saga, but it beates his cousin in many ways. The characters are well described, the story is so fascinating, it's almost as intriguing as a novel... Definitely the best computer RPG experience I had since Wasteland! (and it was a long time ago... ;-) And I love succubus!
