Metacritic: 86 (as of 10/4/17)

IGN: 8.5/10 (Great) – “For an RPG of its complexity, it’s surprising how pleasingly intuitive its gamepad control scheme is, and its easily legible text makes it feel just as good to play from the couch as from a desk. It’s a memorable experience that suffers from only a few technical hiccups, most significantly its long and frequent loading times.”

PushSquare: 9/10 (Excellent) – “Pillars of Eternity is a wonderful role-playing game, expertly weaving deep, tactical combat and captivating writing – a combination that will appeal to unabashedly old school gamers, but will also yield abundant rewards for players new to the genre.”

DualShockers: 8.5/10 (Great) – “…Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition falls into a genre that is notoriously difficult to get into, simply because of the complex systems….if you are willing to spend some time introducing yourself to a world and playstyle you have never explored, that investment will pay out in dividends.”

Hardcore Gamer: 4.5/5 – “…any RPG fan who prefers console to PC gaming owes it to themselves to check this one out. This is a perfect example of an old school RPG done in a way to feel contemporary that still maintains an element of tabletop feel to it.”

Destructoid: 8/10 (Great) – “The setting and characters are wonderful, and anyone looking for a meaty, densely plotted RPG will find a lot to like….If you have any interest in a playing a game like Baldur’s Gate or Planescape: Torment again, you’d be doing yourself a disservice not picking this one up.”

Playstation Lifestyle: 8/10 – “I’m incredibly impressed with how Obsidian has managed to translate this hardcore cRPG to console. More than anything, I’m thrilled that console gamers now have the opportunity to romp through Eora. It’s an adventure no RPG-fan should miss.”
