  1. Pillars is one of my favorite games of the current console generation, and much as Torment: Tides of Numenara was my game of the year in 2016, Pillars might hold that honor for 2017, were it not for Nintendo’s Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Any console gamer that values strong storytelling, engaging and likeable characters and solid party based combat should check out Pillars without hesitation. Similarly, if you’ve ever lamented the decline of classic RPG’s in a world ever more concerned with 4K and 60 frames per second, then there has never been a better chance to make amends and dive into something completely different.

  2. An authentic Dungeons & Dragons experience with some control issues on console unfortunately. It’s a difficult game on any difficulty except storybook mode, combine that with some clunky controls & you’re in for a rough time. I did not let the controls deter me from enjoying the game though. It really is a masterpiece of gaming. You can get NPCs to join your party that will either be controlled by an AI script or you can switch to that character and take control of them. You can equip yourself or the NPCs in your party with whatever gear/weapons you find or buy. There are many classes to choose from but i found the races to be very limited. There is a lot of reading and dialogue in this game so be prepared for that, but i like that it gives you a lot of dialogue choices in conversation. You can be Good, Evil, Neutral etc. in your choices you make, altering the story and how people will perceive you. Once you get a few party members to help you the game becomes easier, so don’t let the initial difficulty spike and controls turn you away from this great game.

  3. There is a lot to like about this game – but there is also a lot to dislike.What is there to like? Character build is nice and building your character as you progress is interesting. The TRPG aspect is enjoyable and you can modify the flow of the game battles with the pause options. The dialog between the NPCs is interesting.What is there to dislike? The game takes forever and ever and ever to load screens – and in today’s video gaming world it is unacceptable. Try going to your home base to rest – so you hit the map to go to your base – load – go to the building to rest – load – go to the stairs to head to the bedroom – load – hit the bed to rest – load – go to stairs to play game – load – exit building – load – exit base – load. Seven load times for one rest – and each load time is extremely long. That is the biggest issue and it hurts the game a great deal. And if you think the load times are bad in the base game – wait until you hit the White Marsh were (for some reason) the load times are even longer. Also with the White Marsh the screen freezes when you are trying to read documents and books – you have to exit the game – and guess what – more long load times.Besides the loading screen issues – the story is minimal and not very interesting at all. When you finish it you think “that is it?”. Very disappointing and lacking in vision.NPC specific quests are even more lacking than the main story. The fighter (forget name) has a quest that you have to obtain reputation in town to continue. I finished every single quest – got good standings when the quest finished – yet never progressed in reputation – I believe it is bugged – and could not finish it. Durance (priest) was in my party forever and talks about this Godhammer – giving the illusion you will discover this great weapon – never happens.Overall a good game, but not a great game. It never achieves the tactical aspect of X-Com, Wastelands or Divinity Original SIn. It never achieves the RPG story aspect (which it advertises) of Baldurs Gate – and not even close to the great stories that you see in Mass Effect and other RPGs.It was a nice game to pass the time until the next RPG – but a bit of a disappointment – and the unforgiving, horrifying, dreadful loading screens.

  4. Pillars of Eternity is the spiritual successor to Baldur’s Gate and Icewind Dale. Both are classic role-playing games (RPGs) that were released for the PC back in 1998 and 2000 respectively. These were developed by Black Isle Studios, and the last such game (Icewind Dale II) came out in 2002. For over 10 years, the isometric RPG vanished… until now! Welcome to Pillars of Eternity! In 2012, a kickstarter project raised over $4 million to fund what would be Pillars of Eternity. In 2015, the game was finally released, and received universal acclaim. For years, people thought this would not see a console release, but surprisingly, this year (2017) saw Pillars released for the PS4. There are some great reasons to own the PS4 version, and at least one reason you will be angry (read below)!Is the PS4 version of the game worth getting? The short answer is: YES.However, it is far from perfect.*********First off, why would you want to get this for the PS4? There are actually a number of reasons. This is the COMPLETE edition, it includes both DLCs (The White March Parts I & II) on disk. Secondly, if you are not into playing games on a personal computer, this is the only way you can go. Thirdly, and most importantly, this game is very fun! It is also “old-school” which means it is NOT easy. You have to think. You have to read. You will experience a true “role-playing” game, where you become part of a group of people on an epic journey. The story, is superb.*********GAMEPLAY:Although there is a lot of action/fighting in this game, this is not an action RPG. This is a real-time tactical RPG, although you can (and absolutely must) pause battles in order to give commands to your characters. The perspective is a fixed isometric game-world, with beautiful two-dimensional backdrops. You explore the areas and as you do so, uncover quests, tasks (which are akin to simple quests), speak with characters, fight enemies, and on the higher difficulties, most likely die (quite often in fact). This game does not hold your hand.*********GRAPHICS:The per-rendered backdrops are gorgeous! Unfortunately, your characters are a bit on the ugly side. Still, this is certainly not a game you get for the sexy graphics. That said, I personally love the look of an isometric game, and the detail to everything from the flowers, the flying butterflies, the water, is lovingly rendered. Do not expect any cutscenes! At certain times in the game, you will make decisions but instead of seeing a cutscene, it’s more like an illustrated book. This may sound awkward, but in truth it works very well.*********SOUND:Some great voice acting. Although the voice acting is limited. I wish it was fully voiced, but for whatever reasons (money perhaps?) the game is not. Still, your characters often speak. Other important game characters have some voice acting as well. Apart from that, the music is superb! The composer, Justin Bell, did a fabulous job! The music oscillates between relaxing (out in the fields), busy (in the city), and intense (battles). The official soundtrack has 26 tracks, and is so beautiful that I could not help myself and had to purchase the soundtrack (you can get it on amazon for $8.99 :)*********LOAD TIME:I have never seen a modern game that takes so long to load! Why this is the case, I do not know. However, the publishers (Obsidian and Paradox Entertainment) should be ASHAMED of themselves! Along with other glitches such as flickers, sound effects sometimes not working, and similar (but NOT game-breaking) bugs, this is really not acceptable in today’s standards. Most of the bugs I could easily live with, but the LOAD TIMES… you may literally have to wait a minute for the game to load. Now, you may think “big deal, it’s just one minute!” Ah, but that is where you are mistaken! When you start the game, you get the load screen. When you enter a building (any building), you get the load screen. When you enter a new environment, you get the load screen. When you load a game, obviously you get the load screen. Care to calculate how much of your life you will be watching the load screen? NOT ACCEPTABLE, terrible job Obsidian/Paradox.Yet, I still recommend the game, because the writing is just so strong and the game itself is truly fun. However, because of the load screen in particular, and other glitches, I took off a whole star in my rating.*********This is the ONLY DRM-FREE copy of Pillars available today! Every other version has some DRM. The kickstarter edition had a DRM-free main campaign. However, the DLCs (White March) are tied to specific accounts. Which is disappointingly a form of DRM. Fortunately, here we have the complete game, along with the DLCs, all on disk! Let me summarize:+++SUPERB story! True RPG goodness! So much detail it’s scary…+++Beautiful isometric gameplay! Really different than any other RPG out there today.+++COMPLETE GAME! Everything is on disk, this is the ONLY complete DRM-free edition.+++Challenging! You can vary the difficulty from easy, to rear-destroying. Personally, I play the latter, and it is HARD, no hand-holding.+++Choices -you will make choices for better or worse. It’s nice that you can play how you want to play!+++Your party members have unique personalities and quests. This is nicer than just create your characters and whatever (although you can do that too)!+++MUSIC = WIN—–LOAD TIME = WHAT THE HECK?!(A few other small glitches, but forgivable, except for the load time)Bottom Lines: This is one of the most interesting and truly great RPGs to come out in years (my opinion of course). The rather poor port is detrimental. Still, if you are a fan of RPGs then you really have to get this. The load times do NOT ruin the game, it’s still one of the most fun RPG experiences. However, it is detrimental, and if you do get this game (otherwise highly highly recommended) please send an email to Obsidian and Paradox expressing your frustration at the terrible load times.
