The original Planescape: Torment was released in 1999 to widespread critical acclaim. It won RPG of the Year from multiple outlets for its unconventional story, characters, and amazing soundtrack. Since then, millions of Planescape: Torment fans have enjoyed exploring the strange and dangerous city of Sigil and surrounding planes.

Discover an incredibly rich story and a unique setting unlike anything else in fantasy. Defeat strange and alien creatures, engage in rich dialogue, and explore the dark and dangerous Planescape setting in this 50+ hour RPG classic.

This is Planescape: Torment like youve never seen before.

Story:
"What can change the nature of a man?"

You are The Nameless One, a hulking figure covered in scars and tattoos collected over the course of countless livesnone of which you can remember, but are now coming back to haunt you. You are prodded awake by Morte, a floating skull and keeper of secrets, to embark on an adventure taking the Nameless One from the dirty streets of Sigil into the mysterious Outer Planes and even into the depths of Hell itself.

In your search for answers, you'll find companions matching the bizarre nature of the planes: a chaste succubus who can kill with a kiss, a confused crossbow-wielding cube, a suit of armor animated by a spirit demanding JUSTICE, and more. With these companions and others at The Nameless Ones side, you will explore worlds in search of answers, all to discover that some destinies cannot be escaped and some memories cost more than an immortal should be willing to pay.

I've never played this. I've played the BG games on iPad. How does this compare? More accessible? About the same?

Baldur's Gate was a revolution for my D&D group.
BGII was epic.
Icewind Dales were fun dungeon crawlers.
But Planescape blew all the Infinity Engine games away, in a way that was deeply and utterly personal by the end of the game. You lived the Nameless, his choices were yours.

Perfect for a thinking, questioning teenager, great fun for an adult who wants to stretch the mind.

@Ashmike, please note that the combat in PST is satisfying, but nowhere near as complicated or challenging as BGII or IWD. The story and the characters and the choices is what makes this game shine.

Never played Planescape. Regarding it as a mobile game:

1. How are the controls on a phone?
2. Can it be played with the sound off or is audio critical?

It was the complicated combat that caused me to delete BG and never try it again. If this is better in that respect might just give it a go.

I just hate games that let the mechanics get in the way of the gameplay.

BTW it's universal but is it really playable on the 7+?
