Default Wow, I knew Pillars of Eternity was going to be good.....

I didn't expect universal praise though.

Even IGN gave it a 9:

9.2 from PC Gamer:

But while it could easily have been little more than a cynical nostalgia trip, dining out on the legacy of those old games, Obsidian have actually created something that stands tall on its own. It’s the most captivating, rewarding RPG I’ve played on a PC in years, and I’ve fallen in love with the intricate, richly painted world they’ve crafted.

Just half an hour after Pillars of Eternity introduced a character whose wanderlust backstory was so eloquently told that I was sure she’d be at my side for the rest of the campaign, I found her dead in a tragic mishap she’d brought on herself. That was the moment when I knew I'd love this fantasy story and world: it’s so rich, it can afford to kill a promising adventurer just to set a mood. It’s a bold move that could’ve backfired, but developer Obsidian’s latest roleplaying game keeps the story momentum and awesome old-school tactical combat going for an impressive 70-hour running time.

They're pretty harsh, dude. Remember that 9.5 they gave ODST's graphics?

They often aren't kind to PC-only games, both in time spent on the review and in score.

Loved Baldur's Gate back in the day but it and Jagged Alliance (which was amazing) were pretty much the only only Isometric RPGS like this that I really played. Still have a boxed copy of both Baldur's Gate II and Icewind Dale sitting on the desk unplayed. I'd probably snag it on consoles if it actually bounced over like Wasteland 2, defiantly would like to support the old school feels genre.

I haven't gotten around to playing this yet. I backed it on Kickstarter and I have downloaded it. Perhaps i should try to play it tomorrow, or Monday (I should have several days off starting Monday).
