À propos du jeu

Beyond Divinity est la suite du jeu multi-récompensé Divine Divinity. Votre âme est liée à celle d'un Chevalier de la Mort, et elle le sera jusqu'à la fin des temps, à moins que vous ne réussissiez à annuler la malédiction... Préparez-vous pour votre plus grande aventure !

Cette version retravaillée offre une compatibilité avec Windows 7 et des résolutions plus élevées.

Caractéristiques :

  • Un jeu de rôle aux proportions épiques : Vivez une aventure passionnante de plus de 60 heures, bourrée de quêtes non linéaires et offrant un monde gigantesque à explorer, à travers les 4 actes du scénario. Vous pourrez également entrer dans les Champs de bataille : des mondes générés aléatoirement remplis de butin, d'ennemis et de nouvelles quêtes.
  • Un personnage sans classe pour un meilleur développement : C'est vous qui décidez ce que va devenir votre personnage ! Le système de développement du personnage est vaste, ouvert et sans classe spécifique. Profitez de 30 traits de personnage et apprenez 290 compétences, dont l'alchimie avancée, l'artisanat, la création de pièges et bien d'autres encore.
  • La victoire en équipe : Vous pouvez passer très simplement de votre avatar au Chevalier de la Mort, et inversement. Vous pouvez mettre le jeu en pause à tout moment, en plein combat, pour donner des ordres à chacun. Les poupées d'invocation vous permettent d'agrandir encore plus la taille de votre groupe.
  • Des objets à gogo : Le jeu comporte un nombre ahurissant d'objets à découvrir, échanger, utiliser ou combiner. Vous avez trouvé des fioles vides et ramassé des champignons rigolos ? Créez donc des potions ! Vous avez trouvé un poison dangereux ? Frottez-y votre lame et vos flèches : vos ennemis vont apprécier !
  • Une bande originale récompensée : Profitez des superbes mélodies composées par Kirill Pokrovsky, deux fois récompensé par le "Outstanding Achievement in Music" d'IGN.

The tutorial/learning curve is the only hard part about this game. It is frustrating in the beginning and you die often. Here is my tip to get past it. save alot, and RUN if it seems impossible. At first, you need to click on top right icon to select and play as the death knight. Now near top right is option to "Select all" You can now fight and control both people at once. You can right click items to send to opposite character if it suits them better. Also click on potion symbol to access all the potions you have, but you have to click it for the corresponding character to heal them.

Also near top right is option to set your secondary skills. I set the human to lockpicking and skills can be upgraded via vendors to either add new skills, or in essence increase the max level your skills can get to. If you skip one of the imps, it may not let you get skills to +10 as the imp allows. (Thief skills like pickpocket, sneak, lockpick, etc) I would make sure to talk to him and get enough money for atleast lockpick 10)

The torture chamber master seems impossible. Just backtrack after getting some keys to the burning area that you started at where you first meet the death knight. There should be a small bow in top left area beyond previously locked gate. In battle press space much like dragonage origins, and make sure to click select all and then click enemy and unpause. I control the deathknight to hold aggro and have human archer stay back. Your bow will eventually break, but as soon as you can warp back to base camp from the key you can buy repair skill up to level 6, drag the basecamp key into your inventory and topright skill menu, you will see ability to warp to battlefield, which is an area with many shops but also areas to level up at. Skeletons won't level you up so skip the long dungeon full of them. Once you get a little further where you fight deathknights in chambers, you will soon find another battlegrounds upgrade to lvl 2.

You can now access new dungeons around lvl 7 area (Keep crossing bridges to the right of battlegrounds to reach these crystal staircase like places) You can only reach the new ones as you get higher level battleground keys.

Look for levers around, hold ALT to see items. Make sure to find a large key that allows you to travel to battlegrounds.

SEE ISN'T IT EASY TO FIGURE OUT_ OF COURSE IT IS! I recommend playing divine divinity first, i got to lv33 in divine divinity, and want to play through both of these before i get into divinity original sin further. Great game, but not as good as divine divinity, but it feels like an accomplishment to get into this game and overcome the learning curves, to get a new experience much like the previous game, but with gameplay that reminds me a bit of dragonage origins.

Beyond Divinity is mechanically better than it's predecessor.
The menus are better.
The loot is better.
The class system is more meaningful.
Your choice of skills is WAY better and more varied than before.
The setting is far more interesting than the "Medievial Western Europe" of the first game.

However, too much is wrong with it to justify a buy.
1. The loot system's coding is broken ("Rogues Rags Gloves Blue of the Magus", anyone?)
2. You can, at ANY TIME, teleport to a safe area to buy/sell/ID/Repair items.
3. 90% of the subquests, which do nothing to drive the plot, are MANDITORY. It's busy work.
4. The steam version does not come with a copy of the novella "Child of the Chaos" that was packaged with the game.
5. The last 1/4 of the game is a five-story maze where you do nothing but puzzles, read books, learn complex magic rituals and do a lot of extra backtracking. This KILLED the remainder of the game and by the time I got through to the end I just did not care.


TDLR: It's not bad mechanically speaking, but the manditory subquests and the last 1/4 of the game just kill the fun.
That, and the novella that's supposed to come with the game, "Child of the Chaos", does not come with the steam version. How else will you know what the heck is going on? (I hunted down a copy on Amazon since I run a youtube show "D&D Stories" to do reviews of stuff like this) I figured out the "ending twist" less than 1/4 of the way through the game. :(

This is a sequel to Divine Divinity, so you'll need to check that out for a starting point first. Basically it's the same except the characters are 3D, you control a party of two characters (plus possible summons), and the skill functionality has been reworked into a needlessly bloated gimmicky FUBAR system. The writing is as stupid as DD was, and voice acting is bad.

Fans of DD seem to mostly either outright dislike BD or consider it meh. I was not too impressed with DD either and I'd say this would pass your time if you liked DD enough to want a bunch of similiar (if not exactly the same) gameplay in that setting.

Wow. Definitely one of the worst games I have every played. The voice acting is bad, I mean, really really awful. You also get basically chained to an annoying death knight npc because you and he share souls. You can't be apart and niether of you can die, so you have to babysit both characters. It's pain to micromanage them effectively, because added on to all of that everything about the game (including attacks, enemies. damage, etc) moves ridiculously fast.

Another thing is that this game is stupidly hard. I died about 5 times in the first few minutes of the game. This is because my first guy was a wizard, but for some reason you don't start with any spells. My second was a thief but apparently stealth is useless because enemies automatically see you if you get to close. Basically, I got beat to death in a few seconds.

It's possible to keep your main guy seperate, so I probably could've beaten the first dungeon, but that means you cannot use the "select all" button, meaning you have to switch back and forth to move both characters over and over, which is so tedious. Also, the death knight will just get beat to death if you try to send him in as a tank, so it doesn't solve the problem.

This game just gives me a headache, so I decided to forget it. It isn't worth the meager payoff.

I have a confession - a lot of my enjoyment of this game was out of spite. To get more information about this game, I decided to look at a Let's Play (http://lparchive.org/Beyond-Divinity). Some information is good - for example, sneak is absolutely invaluable. Some I'm unsure of, like all the skills he calls useless. One thing I know for sure he's dead wrong about - magic. Magic is wonderful. Magic is incredible. Magic can break the game in half, especially with the wonders of Hammer. Summoning dolls I'm less sure about, but I think they're worth more exploration.

To me, this game really hearkens to Warcraft 2 - the music is really reminiscent of something you'd hear during the Orc missions and the cartoonish graphics are similarily familiar (maybe Warcraft 3). It's got RTS-lite gameplay where you control two party members, each with their own skills and stats, with the option to summon more temporarily. The comically bad voice acting is comparable in tone although not in quality.

I do have one big problem with it, though. If you click on the wildlife by accident, -all- wildlife of that type aggro you. There's a lot of wildlife. It gets tedious.

Overall, I'd say give it a whirl. It's a fun adventure and continuation of the Divinity plotline. I'd also recommend reading the included Novella, Child of Chaos - it's a short read that sets up the plot of the game and makes later events make a lot more sense.
