Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Review

I went into Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire hoping to be as delighted as I was playing Pillars of Eternity I. I hoped that the flaws of the first game would be addressed in an epic new adventure with exciting new features. I hoped that everything that I loved about the first game would be left intact.

Pillars of Eternity -- The White March, Part 2

Perhaps, but my heart does not lie to me. Whereas the original game was one that I couldn’t stop playing, The White March – Part 2 was a game that eventually became a grind that I had to force myself to finish.  Now would be a great time for Obsidian to take a few years to reflect on the successes of Pillars of Eternity and develop a great sequel.

Blues and Bullets: Episode I -- The End of Peace

It has too many bland elements in common with lots of other titles, and what it does uniquely doesn’t excel enough to make the game easy to recommend. Still, since it is a mystery series, it could pay off down the road if its “whodunit” aspect is satisfying. It is a series that you will want to follow though to see if the mystery that it offers turns out to be a good one.

Pillars of Eternity: The White March - Part I

If you loved Pillars of Eternity, then The White March - Part I is more of what you love, and a sizable portion at that. It is quality material and a satisfying add-on to the core game, but not quite the delightful experience that it was back in March for a few reasons, most of which boil down to the fact that the basic experience isn't brand new anymore.

Pillars of Eternity

Pillars of Eternity gets so much right and surpasses expectations in so many areas that it is sometimes too good to be true.
