Advanced Dungeons & Dragons

Welcome to Sigil, the "City of Doors," a place with gates that lead anywhere in existence, provided you have the proper key. It is a neutral ground and watering hole for races across the multiverse, all under the watchful shadow of the Lady of Pain, the enigmatic ruler of the city. It is a place where the word is mightier than the sword, where thought defines reality, where belief has the power to reshape worlds and change the laws of physics.

Character creation is just the beginning - throughout the game your character adapts to fit your own personal gaming style.

The Planescape universe is a setting you've NEVER experienced before, filled with sharp-edged visuals, bizarre adversaries, and strange magics.

Encounter inventory items with personalities. Manage an unpredictable party of the strangest allies to walk the faces of alternate planes.

You can regenerate, speak with the dead, and have magical immunities. You're a power to be RECKONED with. Unfortunately, so is everyone else.

Requirements:

Required: IBM compatible PC Pentium 200MHx with MMX, Windows 95/98 with DirectX 6.0 or higher, 32MB RAM, DirectX certified sound and video card, 650 MB free hard drive space, 8x CD-ROM drive, 4MB SVGA video card, 100% Microsoft compatible mouse.

Recommended: IBM compatible PC Pentium 266MHz with MMX, 64MB RAM, 800 MB free hard drive space, 12x CD-ROM drive, 4MB or greater SVGA video card for 24 and 32 bit effects.

Reviews:

JustRPG by Andrew Ellis

"From the start, you can tell Planescape: Torment kicks ass. It drags you in from the start. You wake up in a mortuary on a stone tablet surrounded by Zombies and a talking skull, and you don't even remember your own name. You are set off trying to find out who you are and so on. The plot line might sound a little stupid, but you'll wind up being so involved in it that you'll end up hopelessly addicted after your first hours of play.

"Things just get better after this. The dialogue is great, there are plenty of spells, and if you know what you have to do, you can do it. An interesting feature is that Nameless One, your main PC, is immortal. He can be killed, but most of the time he will be resurrected..."

"Torment's graphics are excellent for 2D sprites. The characters look realistic and the spell effects are awe-inspiring. One draw back is that, like most games, the characters in the towns look pretty much like all the other characters in the town..."

"Overall, this is an excellent game and I would recommend it unconditionally to anyone who likes fantasy role-playing-games at all."

Gamers Pulse by T. Robert Szekely

"Few games capture me from the get go, but this one did. The introduction cut scene is more than flash and style; miss it at your peril. Planescape: Torment (PST) is the newest Computer Role Playing Game (CRPG) from the people who brought you Baldur’s Gate, Tales of the Sword Coast, Fallout, Fallout 2, and the upcoming Neverwinter Nights and Icewind Dale. This is an RPG pedigree of the highest order and it shows. PST takes place in Sigil, the City of Doors. Think the crossroads of the universe. This is where races, gods and mortals mix. For those familiar with Baldur’s Gate, you will find much that is familiar and a fair amount that has been tweaked and refined. For those who have never played a CRPG, this is a great one to start on."

"The graphic design is simply amazing. The colour palette is varied and gorgeous. The buildings all have a ‘cool’ factor to them. Character animation is great and the bored animations are worth letting nothing happen just to see them. Morte has some great lines which are worth the price of admission alone. The females in the game are, uh, a little more, hmm, buoyant, and scantily clad than the real world would have, but all in all not too bad."

"Needless to say I was impressed. The voice work is the finest I have heard. The music is great and adds greatly to the game. My advice is to crank the speakers and play away."

"All in all Planescape: Torment was an absolute joy to play. I have lost quite a few hours to it and will lose a quite few more before I let this one off my hard drive."
