I have a detailed review of Pillars of Eternity 2. 

The review contains a mini strategy guide on party composition and Pillars tactical combat 101.

If interested, you can find it at:

Wow, very good review, airboy.  Now I want this game even more, dang it!

This is updated content on my blog about this review:

Content Warning:
Pillars 2 has some normal RPG content issues: drug use, slavers, prostitution, etc....   There is nudity (tiny figure on the screen) in the bathhouse and a couple of other places - but the nudity fits the locations where it is used (prostitutes, bathhouse, etc....).

But Pillars 2 has content that is pretty far out there for a RPG game.  The game is rated "M" (17+) for a reason.  Some language is unsuitable for those under 18.  How unsuitable?  Think "f-bombs" and more.  Most of the language is utterly unnecessary for the plot.  Vulgarity just for the sake of vulgarity is sloppy writing and game design.  A little more creativity would both ease the concerns of some purchasers while broadening the vocabulary of other users.

[I appreciate Sir Slash reminding me of this.  It was in my review notes - and then I forgot to put it into the review].

Of course Sir Slash would know about that content!  :whistle:

My pug told me about it. He's quite the gamer but cheats like a shit at cards.
