    Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire is as close to the perfect RPG as one can get. The fantastic setting, grand story, exceptional writing and voice acting, engaging combat all coalesce into an exemplar of its kind. This is the game that sets the bar. This is the game that needs to be aspired to.

    Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is one of the best modern RPGs on PC. Obsidian's new video game is an amazing adventure with a brilliant writing, deep combat and amazing atmosphere.

    In the wake of my first complete Deadfire playthrough, I can conclude that it is a wholly improved sequel in virtually every aspect of its predecessor, and a highly entertaining RPG which will certainly be a candidate for GOTY 2018.

    A genuine joy of a game and one which is simultaneously approachable and impossibly deep, Deadfire is a fantastic sequel and one which you will be thinking even when you are away from its world.

    Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire rises well above the typical role-playing fare, and will provide an unforgettable experience for those that are willing to put the time to fully embrace what it is offering.

    A massive, bountiful RPG with richly descriptive writing, a well-realised setting, and deep tactical combat.

    Surfing is interesting for the first 10-15 hours of the experience (whose main quest can be completed in about 25 hours, while it takes at least twice as long to explore most of the map), but then becomes a redundant activity.

    An amazing sequel and a great RPG to explore!
    The best thing is the story-telling and the characters.

    In urgent need of patch to make

    Impresionante, épico... no tengo palabras para elogiar a un juegazo de un calibre espectacular.
    Los cambios con respecto al Pillar 1 son sencillamente perfectos. Un guión que te enganchará desde el primer momento, combates y mágias de todos los colores con un sistema perfectamente equilibrado que te hará disfrutar de cada minuto. Soy seguidor de este tipo de juegos desde hace muchos, muchos años. Baldurs Gates, Icewind, Bards Tales, neverwinter y como no el Pillars 1. Y el único que le aguanta el pulso a este es el Divinity Original Sin 2. Pero aún asi en mi opinion este lo supera de largo. JUEGO OBLIGADO DE TENER. OBRA MAESTRA.

    By far the most beautiful isometric RPG ever made, as well as the most feature packed and complex.

    As someone who isn't a super fan of CRPGs, considered Torment: Tides of Numenera to be complete garbage and got a refund, and was super boredAs someone who isn't a super fan of CRPGs, considered Torment: Tides of Numenera to be complete garbage and got a refund, and was super bored after 3 hrs of Pillars of Eternity 1, I have to say I'm very much impressed by PoE 2. I mean it's clearly a super upgrade compared it to PoE 1 in pretty much everything.

    Something that bugged me in PoE 1 was the fact that your followers were utterly brain dead and you had to manually command them to breathe every damn encounter. This is no longer the case in 2, as the game now has an extensive AI behaviour setup, so your followers can now be taught how to breathe on their own.

    Also the fact almost everything is voiceacted, is a super plus, as I hate reading novels and novels of text every time I converse with an NPC.

Everything the game improves over the first title (combat, visuals, sounddesign) it destroys with bad writing and funky voice acting.

    While the combat gets better and better with every game Obsidian makes, the writing takes a nose-dive over their last titles.
    I hope they can break this trend with their next project, while keeping the combat as good as it is now.

    One of the worst CRPG ever made
    Writing is cringe, gameplay is boring and "safe" garbage
    Honestly I can't understand how can someone defend

    Honestly I can't understand how can someone defend this game, it just doesn't have redeeming qualities. Obsidian blaming backers for the final state of game, just like they blamed publishers everytime before was just too much for me
