Summary: It's one of the most interesting RPG games I've ever played and it's one of my favourite games along with Baldur's Gate and Dragon Age. As my English is not good enough to express all my love for this game I'll quote one of the reviews written by G.Kasavin: "it's a great-looking game that's lengthy but never boring, and it begs to be played through more than once, just as its unique hero and his story promise not to be forgotten.
Summary: I'm not getting wordy here. You like D&D? Played and liked Knights of the Old Republic, or the Icewind Dale series, Neverwinter Nights, or Baldur's Gate? Gameplay is a bit simplified, your main character can freely switch between all classes via dialogue with NPC's that are strategically placed throughout the city. Yes, city. Not nation or world. Don't diss it for this, though.
Summary: Well other people alread say almost everthing about the game, I specially liked david.m.layton's review, that also give 5 star. Some people like to play as a human being, but I prefer being some kind of monster. In the game you take the role of a cursed human, but the curse is so powerful that you don't look or feel playing as a human at all and all other characters that can join your group don't have many human traits too, I enjoy that.
Summary: To this day I don't think I have enjoyed a story as much as in Torment. When I woke up in a morgue and had different clues hidden inside my body, I was hooked. Although I enjoyed the actual gameplay of Baldurs Gate more, the story in planescape exceeds any other game to date. I may just have to play this game again.
Summary: Planescape Torment is a cult classic and is considered by many to have the best story in any video game ever made. I recently completed it, and I'm here to tell you that the hype is justified--this is an incredible game. It instantly makes it into my all time top 5. Planescape contains one of the most unique and interesting settings and the best writing and plot I have ever seen in a video game.
Summary: When's the last time you played a game that needed three play-throughs to squeeze all the awesomeness out of it? Planescape: Torment is the benchmark against which I measure all cRPGs. The graphics, writing, characters, and plot are utterly fascinating and truly creative. More recent releases such as Neverwinter Nights 2, Dragon Age and Oblivion have more advanced graphics, but I've never seen a game that could hold a candle to this one for originality, satisfaction and...
Summary: WARNING: This game is not for everyone. If you don't like RPGs, you definitely will not like this. Planescape Torment has one of the best stories I've experienced in a cRPG. It goes beyond the characters, their situations, and the planes, to touch on much deeper topics of morality and the nature of man; stuff that will have you thinking long after you have beaten the game. *Know* that if you intend to rush through it that you will miss all the value it holds.
Summary: After so many years of reading books, playing video games & watching movies, certain stereotypes tend to get really worn out, the "save the world" and "amnesiac hero" cliches and the Tolkien based fantasy realms of RPGs started to become boring after awhile. There were always some magnificent exceptions like Darklands, System Shock, Wasteland (and it's direct descendants; the Fallouts) but all in all by the late nineties I had begun to drift more toward Console RPGs;...
