Pillars of Eternity II - Review @RPGamer

by Silver, 2019-05-13 11:46:35

RPGamer have reviewed Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire and regard it as a solid improvement over its predecessor with some drawbacks.

The formula may seem familiar, but this series has so much to offer over its ancestors, and this sequel features many gameplay and graphical improvements over the first game. That having been said, the characters and story aren’t as compelling this time around, while the ending fails to give players much control over the outcome. The constant ship and crew management along with the underwhelming ship-to-ship combat and somewhat punishing difficulty had a bad habit of breaking the immersion. Those with an appreciation for the tabletop games and classic PC games this pays homage to will likely have an enjoyable experience. The learning curve is a bit steep, the seas may get choppy, and the deck can get rather slippery, but with some patience and perseverance, even the greenest sailor can go from lowly deckhand to decorated captain.

Thanks Farflame!
