About This Game

Listed among the "Top 100 PC Games Of All Time" by PC GAMER (2012), Divine Divinity is an epic role-playing game with hack-and-slash action, offering a huge world to explore and thousands of items to investigate, trade and use.

The game chronicles the never-ending battle between valiant heroes and the destructive powers of Chaos harnessed by the Black Ring, a cult of enduring evil. You play the role of the prophesised Chosen One who under the guidance of the wizard Zandalor must unite the seven races of Rivellon so that you may become the Divine One and stop the birth of the Lord of Chaos.

This new re-mastered version offers support for Windows 7 and higher resolutions.

Key Features:

  • An RPG of Epic Proportions
    Experience an adventure that will last you over 100 hours, filled with tons of non-linear quests and offering an enormous world to explore!
  • Classless Character Development
    You decide what kind of character you want to be! Start out as a warrior, wizard or survivor – each with his own unique ability – then freely choose between 96skills, regardless of your class.
  • Hack & Slash with a Twist
    Fight dozens of different enemy types and obliterate them in visceral, fast-paced combat. Things getting a bit hectic for you? Then pause the game at will, and take your time to look over the battlefield - or drink that much needed health potion.
  • Interaction Galore
    Discover the enormous amount of objects that can be investigated, traded, used and combined. Found some empty flasks and picked up some colourful mushrooms? Create potions! Obtained some vile-smelling poison? Daub it on your blade or arrow tips: your foes won't know what hit 'em!
  • Award-winning Soundtrack
    Enjoy the dulcet melodies composed by Kirill Pokrovsky, the two-time winner of IGN’s "Outstanding Achievement in Music” award.

This game is fantastic.

As simple as the graphics are, your mind fills in the blanks. You get a sense of the world you are in without the need for better eye candy.

The quests are fun. The dungeons are challenging. There is plenty to steal. There are mysteries, easter eggs and all manner of mayhem.

The hours I have logged from Steam came about when I was between mighty desktops and needed a game to slake my thirst in the interim. This one fit the bill: low sys requirements - obviously. Quite honestly I didn't expect to become as immersed in it as I did.

Wonderful stuff.

And damn - .89 USD during the summer sale.

You would be a fool to pass it up - even if you only had a modicum of interest.

Hell. I would even consider buying it for you.

Just buy it.

What.

Are you some cheapskate that enjoys missing out on a good opportunity to pick up a great game?!?

What is wrong with you?

Buy the damned thing. It's good. Man are you thick in the head.

I've played other rpg's in the past. Mostly jrpg's, fallout, and elderscrolls type rpg's. This was my first isometric crpg and I loved it. From the story line, to the gameplay. I loved the simplicity of it. The story hooks you in right away. I also love all the other little stories they had from the books inside the game. The beginning of the game can be a little hard if you don't place your skills just right. But later on it gets more customizable. Beat it and loved it.

I really want to play this game and I've had it for over a year hoping for a patch, but whatever resolution I try, I can't see the bottom half of the screen (conversations, my items, etc).

Потрясающая игра! Давно проходила её не в стиме. После приобретения её тут начала играть занова. Саундтрэки из этой игры уже много-много лет в списке любимых. Обожаю её! И этим должно быть всё сказано (: <3

I've played a bit more than what the Steam record says, and I do think this game has terrific atmosphere and heart. The world-building is superb. I only wish they'd figured out the game balance better. The grind wall is immediate, to the point where you have to start exploiting the game systems outside of what I'd consider normal or immersive gameplay. Past that, you're then over-leveled for everything except for certain creatures that will one-shot you unless you're essentially at end-game levels. I get (and like) having areas that are off-limits until you're a higher-level, but it's all so randomly mixed here and the starting quests already require you to grind - but where, since these are the starting areas? Compound this with skill and magic sets that range from exquisitely useful to worthless, and the balance is just massively off. I don't want to have to look at a guide to see what's useless or doesn't work in a game. For as much artistry as exists in the rest of the game, the gameplay itself is frustrating. It's a shame given the care that goes into the rest of the world.

The Diablo franchise never quite builds the world that Divine Divinity does, nor is it ever quite so open, but the gameplay is so much better balanced, so much more fun. Balance counts for a lot.

Some will still enjoy the grind elements as a price you have to pay to enter the world. They will enjoy it a lot more than I did. For me, the gameplay is an element to the story and if your gameplay is so ill-balanced, it can begin to amount to bad storytelling. That's what happens here. I can see why many consider it a classic, and I think it is. It acts like a classic, it feels like a classic, it oozes with mood. It just doesn't play like a classic, at least for me. If you don't like grind walls and OCD leveling, avoid this. If you don't mind them or that can be fun for you instead of infuriating, the story and world are richly rewarding.

Well all in all its a quite enjoyable game but its the first part and the game world is not that big. I also had a bug that prevents me from saving as soon as i teleport in specific regions. Sadly this bug occured in the last main quest where you have to get the council of the 7 togehter. Because of that wasnt been able to finish this game.

Pros:
- good old rpg
- a lot of skills
- powerful hybrid charaters possible

Cons:
- Sound-bugs
- Save-bugs
- Only a few in-game vendors
- not enough high level enemies

One last tip for good equipment: Quicksave before you kill bosses and re-roll - that can make your life a lot easier especially when you play on hard-mode.

Never played this when it come out in 2002. Just finished it.
The game is very immersive. The graphics are isometric 3D, simply but they do the job. The music is weird. You can't called it good music, but in a way it is because it adds immensily to the immersiveness, with a lot of ambient music, and it sounds otherworldly. The characters and dialogue are pretty good, but not in a serious way. This game is not at all serious and you might be disappointed by the lore, the voice actors (very funny) and the discussions IF you take the game seriously. So you shouldn't in my oppinion. There is alot about Tolkien here, cause its high fantasy, but also some winks (like the dagger that shines when orcs are nearby) and some references to Terry Pratchett as well if I am correct. Also some insider stuff like the AA Gent scroll. The world map is quite large and pretty good, maybe a bit too much of the same though.

The battle system is relatively simple but basically like Diablo. I found to be challenging in the beginning but in accordance with the name of the game, you become godlike towards the end (health and resistances and stats begin to skyrocket with the use of gems). Also, frost is utterly broken, broken! Because of these things the game becomes too easy towards the end, even on the highest difficulties. So maybe it's not a bad idea to not use frost weapons and less gems. On the other hand, you can make so much potions that you can full heal like 99 times. In short, there are some balancing issues to this game, but they can be avoided if you so choose. There are quite alot of sequence bugs in quests as well and that kind of sucks.

Overall, I was happily surpriced by a game with Diable battle mechanics, a lot of questing and exploration and quite alot of humour, it is really a funny game.
So, I give a 7.5/10. I would have given a higher score if not for the bugs and overpowered stuff in the game.

Хорошая игра, и графика и шутки и вообще отмасфера, как и сюжет мне нравятся :)
Сама прошла половину игры, багануло главное задание и дальше не смогла пройти.
Могла бы перепройти игру, но бесконечные пещеры со стремными ввводящими в стресс и уныние и ужас ЗВУКАМИ И КРИКАМИ пытаемых людей, кидают в ужас. БЕСКОНЕЧНЫЕ тунелли канализации и подвалы похожие друг на друга, второй раз это нереально пройти со здоровой психикой. Спасибо. Нет. :)

A game that would've been great 15 years ago, and was surprisingly okay for nowadays. The game play is a bit like the old Ultima games. The world is pretty vast. There are enough different abilities to keep it interesting. And the plots and sidequests are intriguing. It still has some of that old world adventuring - looking for hidden entrances and solving mysteries in addition to the more typical 'get me some herbs' adventuring that's overdone nowadays. If you don't mind the older graphics and style, it'll be well worth playing.

Also, don't get too turned off at first. I found the first 15-20% to be much less interesting than the last 80%. Give it time to get going!

Additionally, if you love Divinity: Original Sin, you might enjoy this anyway: although neither is essential to the other, they are set in the same world, and you get loads of backstory here. The only caveat: Beyond Divinity, the middle section of story, is much less playable. I'd suggest playing Divine Divinity, then reading about what happens in Beyond Divinity, then playing (or replaying) Divinity: Original Sin.

Like leaves on the trees when the autumn comes, I peered into the prodigious ravine they call the Steam Store and found this diamond in the rough layed out before me. "$2.00" it whispered into my ears and I was sold - I knew I had to get this; boy was I delighted with the treat I found in stored for me.

Many claim they can see the end of times upon them with this coming era but I stayed vigilant. I gave hope to the fallen kings of men and entered a realm unknownst to any before me. It was this day that I found out what it meant to be the Chosen.

My journey started like any other - I was weak, heedful of my surroundings, aware that any danger I find may soon be my very last. Destiny called however, and I knew my place was among the Gods. I stepped forward into a brave new world and accepted the very fate thrusted on me.

Orcs struck, evil mages lashed out with their foul magicks, knights that knew no loyalty saw fit to bring me to their knees; yet I stood firmed. I slayed everyone and everything - from friends to tyrants. None shall stand before my blade and see the light of day again.

"Monster!", they yelled at me. "♥♥♥♥ you", I said in return as I stuck the tip end of my weapon up their haughty buttocks. Tyrants and dragons alike would fall to my sleight of hand as I became the all-powerful, omniscient being the prophets themselves had called to pass.

In my final hour I would lay waste to the Lord of Chaos. His reign was over and my destiny, fulfilled. Men shall not know the end times again as long as I breathe. With one final sigh I gazed back behind me...

What have I done.

In my wake, nothing was left. I had saved the world but at the cost of the world itself. I was but a lone God overseeing a world with no one - how could I ever be the Chosen when there's nothing left to protect? I fell to my knees and cried; there was only one thing left to do. I pulled out my trusted blade that had been by my side this entire time and made some potions out of the nearby red mushrooms.

Stupid title, fantastic open world action RPG. Not an easy game though. Right from the start you will be very easy to kill. Fair warning, the first few hours can be very difficult and quite frankly, a little boring. There are ememies you'll be better off avoiding than fighting (and coming back to slaughter them later is pretty damn satisfying). Upon completing that first dungeon, the game opens up and you can go pretty much wherever you want. It doesn't get any easier though, so staying too far from the story, right off the bat, is a good way to die. That story is pretty interesting and evolves over the course of the subsequent games, but I wouldn't go in expecting a story on the level of Baldur's gate 1 or 2. If you want a solid action RPG that requires a bit of tact and is more Neverwinter Nights than Diablo, this is a solid choice
