*** This is Original & Full U.S. BIG BOX 4-CD Version! ** NOT the Dual Jewel Case 2-CDs** Like advanced Dungeons & Dragons? The Planescape multiverse is composed of a series of "planes" (other dimensions) that rotate around a central city, Sigil, like spokes on a wheel. The character creation feature is just the beginning, your character actually adapts to fit your own personal gaming style.
Explore Sigil, the City of Doors. The doors serve as the town's gateway to everything and everywhere that matters. Step through one door and enter the halls of Ysgard, or turn down a particular alley and discover the Abyss. There are more gateways in Sigil than can be imagined. But there's a lot more out there than just Sigil. Get outside the city and there's the planes themselves: the throne of the gods, the battleground of the eternal Blood War, and home to more horrors and wonders than ever existed on any prime world. There's enough crusades, exploits, treasures, and mysteries to keep a band of adventurers busy for centuries to come. All it takes is the right door, so step right through.See all Product description

In terms of gameplay, this game is similar to the Baldur's Gate series, although it does have a few enhancements to the engine such as the ability to queue up multiple actions. The combat here is not quite as tight as found in Baldur's Gate, but it gets the job done just fine. This game is more focused on dialogue than combat, so if you like a very combat heavy game then you might not like it quite as much. That said, it's pretty hard to imagine anyone who enjoys video games and a good story not enjoying this game. You should also not get the idea that this is just a point and click adventure game with no real combat. There is still plenty of combat, and you must do some heavy fighting to get through a number of sequences in the game.
Although there isn't a ton of it, the voice acting is another major strong point in this game that I wanted to mention. Another thing I like is that you level up A LOT in this game. You start out as sort of weak, but by the end of the game you are a bad, bad man, and that's something I always like in my RPGs.
Graphically, this game looks pretty ragged on a widescreen computer at its original resolution, but this doesn't matter because there is an easy to use mod that allows you to play it in widescreen. Using the mod, it looks fantastic in widescreen. The artwork for the levels is quite detailed and lovely--it made me long for the days of 2d graphics to be honest. I found full on widescreen at 1280 x 800 to be too zoomed out, so I made a custom resolution for 960 x 600 and found that to be just about right. In fact, there are a number of good mods that people generally recommend you get for the game which you can find using google. Most of these simply fix bugs and things of that nature rather than adding entirely new material.
A gameplay tip I would like to mention is that most people say that to get the full experience you have to put a lot of stat points in intelligence and wisdom because this opens up more dialogue options and story elements. I am not sure how much is necessary to get everything, but just thought I'd pass that along. I created a mage and had them both very, very high.
If you get this, make sure you download the multitude of online patches available to make it run smoother with modern machines. They make the graphics look better for one thing, and I can't imagine how many more issues the game would have without those patches.
