TORMENT: TIDES OF NUMENERA Review! – PS4

cover

Torment: Tides of Numenera is the spiritual successor to the quintessential RPG Planescape: Torment. As the highest funded RPG on Kickstarter, Torment has high expectations, and comes to the table prepared. Great stats building, combat, world-building, and the best writing to ever run across a text box await, and it’s all available with console controls, to boot. Don’t wait, dive in to the Ninth World, and experience the madness!

While Torment runs on the Pillars of Eternity engine, there are some radical mechanical departures that make the game feel very different. First, this game is focused on conversation. What does that mean? Lots and lots of reading. We’re talking novels here, folks; however, since the writing is so fantastic, and your dialogue options majorly alter story outcomes, this reading is a joy.

All in all, not enough can be said for how enjoyable Torment: Tides of Numenera is. With a very lengthy game-time for those willing to dig into the content, the (honestly) best writing seen in a game to date, and rewarding conversation and combat mechanics, it’s an experience that will keep players coming back to explore again and again.

If you like reading, bizarre worlds, and have a console or PC, you’d be well-advised to give Torment: Tides of Numenera a try.
