Pillars of Eternity was a fun game that didn’t exactly set the world on fire. Something about being released two months before Witcher 3 didn’t help, but it was enough to turn into a promising RPG franchise. While this Switch port has a few hiccups, mostly due to the game itself rather than the Switch hardware, it is an enjoyable way to play the game.
Overall, Pillars of Eternity is both a fantastic port and still a fantastic game. While it may not have a lot of the ease of access features many newer RPGs have, it doesn’t need them. This is the type of game that is an experience. While definitely not for everyone, checking every corner of every area provides the player with either new items, or new lore to enhance their experience. Pillars of Eternity plays more like a Dungeons and Dragons campaign, and with the ability to take it with you on long commutes or boring events you have to attend, this makes it a great addition to any RPG lover’s catalog.
Pillars of Eternity’s reputation for quality is well deserved. It’s definitely worth checking out, whether on other platforms or when the Switch version is fixed up. For now, the version on Nintendo’s latest is an interesting curiosity with some pretty heavy issues. And it’s not the first time I’ve seen that phrase used in relation to an Obsidian-developed game published by another company.
