"Pillars of Eternity is what RPGs should aspire to be, delivering almost everything that seasoned fans would come to expect from the genre. Essentially, Obsidian knew what kind of experience they were crafting and stuck to what made classics such as Balder’s Gate as great as they were. Coupled with an immaculate art style and a fantastic world to explore, Pillars of Eternity also stands clearly above similar titles of this style. Players may have to have an interest in traditional RPGs to appreciate the beauty of this game, but I am more than happy to have this title in my library, and can see myself diving into this world over and over again. If you’re a fan of older RPGs, definitely don’t miss this one."
