“Divinity II is a wonderful, welcome surprise. It's been a long time since I've played an RPG that manages to balance a lengthy, in-depth story with such a self-aware and hilarious script”

“The writing is consistently terrific, from the genuinely creative quests with multiple solutions to the NPCs which are all hand-crafted and infused with personality. Where other games would have copy + pasted Unclickable Villager A and B a few dozen times, Divinity 2 gives you an actual village, complete with gossipers, philanderers, military deserters, the occasional secret murderer, and even a few normal people”
9/10 – SomethingAwful

“It's amazing such a good game remained undiscovered until this "remastered" version was released. (...) The quests are surprisingly good, with charming voicework and a great sense of humour - and then there's the exploration, with hidden caverns and keys rewarding diligent players”

Beatn main game - 33 hours.

Pretty fun RPG with some minor rough edges.

- Well done realized world.
- Fun skills and abilities
- Good sense of exploration and adventure!

- I had to cheese some of the bosses as they were too difficult. Maybe it was the level I was.
- Sometimes it is a bit difficult to use the map. As in I have quests, but it doesnt say specifically where they are? Inno.
- I had to look up a few times how to beat certain quests.

After beating the game, it was supposed to go to the expansion, but after freezing my pc multiple times even when trying to do a fresh game on the expansion, I couldnt get it to work. So moving on for now.

At first a traditional RPG, it soon shows its true colours as a charming adventure full of wacky characters (Bellegar, the Rhyming Mage, is great) and weird quests, but also with many dramatic moments and cruel situations. Personally, I liked that swinging mood a lot, as it offers a contrast with other more straight-forward RPGs. The story in intself is quite long, so it should take you more than 50 hours to see the end.

Technically, the graphics are ok (it has aged pretty well) and both music and voice acting are very good. The controls and animations feel a bit disjointed, and that can be a problem in some combat situations and specially in the platform jumping related puzzles, but in general they work well. Also, combat can be a bit unbalanced on ocassions, having you advancing trhough hordes of minions without a problem and then being one-shot by a boss (luckyly, this only happened to me in very few instances, and I was finally able to overcome that pesky enemy). The dragon form didn't add much to me, just another layer of exploration to the huge maps.

All in all, a good experience for its presentation, story, quests and characters, with some minor problems with controls and combat. It goes on sale from time to time, so for my is a win-win.

I originally got this game back when it first came out and it was just Dragon Knights. Lost that and got this the game is still really fun as good as any other rpg. Some of the story is a bit meh (but only bits others are pretty good and it has a good twist) and the dragon part is really cool but you can't attack smaller ground targets which is understandable.

Also I have to make a special mention to the Devs and how good they are to their customers. When I had the previous one I had issue with going from the main game to the expansion. So I sent them a message in no time at all I had a response of how I could fix it and if it didn't I was to send my save file to them and they would transfer it over and send it back.

This is one of my favorite RPGs, if not my favorite. When using the dev portion it's really buggy, but the game itself is sooo good. It's definitely comparable to skyrim, but the main story is much longer.

I enjoyed this game overall.

Ability to take to the skys in dragon form
Interesting story
loved having instant access to my tower from anywhere
disenchanting gives you knowledge of the enchantment so you don't have to rely on finding scrolls Allowing you to more easily equipt your character the way you want.

balance seems off. Too easy most of the time with some extremely difficult areas.
limited use of dragon form. Forced to use dragon/human form in parts of the game.

I would love to see a sequel to this in a true open world. Additional attention to development as a dragon would be nice too.

I quite enjoyed the game, though as a true adventurer;
I did stumble upon, a few things that could easily, have been patched.
(Mostly floating objects, in some of the floating fortresses.)

Hoping they will make, either a sequel, or a "pre-sequel."

I love this game. One of the best games ever. But the ending. Oh gods, the ending. Do it. Buy this game. Play it. Let it make you happy. Then let it destroy everything you think is ok with the world. Excellent story. I did NOT see that ending coming. To this day, THE most memerable ending in a game ever. Yeah, I wanted to blow my brains out afterwards but it was an amazing journey.

Divinity 2 is a game where you can (at will) turn into a dragon, attack a flying fortress & its army of dragon riders, land on the courtyard, kill the guards with a mix of sword fighting and destructive spells, subdue the fortress’s commander and then read its mind to know his deepest secrets. All this 100% gameplay, no cutscenes involved. It has to be the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ best RPG ever made by man, right?

Sadly, not quite. Larian Studios was held back by time constrains, lack of resources and, worst of all, the focus on consoles and their limited hardware. While the game overflows with original ideas and Larian’s usual clever writing, the execution doesn’t deliver. It’s not a bad game by any measure; the gameplay is good, some quests are creative (and funny) to do, and it succeeds in giving players interesting mechanics to play with (like mind-reading). But sadly it lacks that “special something” in its execution, making the game somewhat repetitive and mediocre by the end. Still, is a great game that’s not afraid to break the mold and bring something new to the table.

Divinity II Ego Draconis and Divinity II Flames of Vengeance comprise Divinity II: Developer's Cut. The former the original and the latter the expansion. Depending on how you play the length of the entire production can easily extend past 100 hours.

To start, customization was a disappointment. Selection is limited to a male and female model with appropriate sound samples from which to pick. Want to sound like a noble or a soldier then Larian has made that happen. What Larian did not make happen was allow me to choose an avatar in my chosen image. The hair and beard and color of both can be chosen but only female or male and human at that. The game has goblins, why can't the player be a goblin?

Once my disappointment over the customization screen had dissipated it was time to immerse my self in the world of Riverlon. Much like Risen, the player starts as a complete non descript. In terms of the game's systems, the player character might as well have been just expelled from the womb. Barely any attributes or acquired skills make up your profile and depending on your skill level as a gamer and how you allocate your initial allocation of attribute and skill points, the game can be rather unforgiving. Some would think challenging forcing a strategic approach, others may be put off. I thought the former and welcomed the challenge eagerly building my character for the tasks ahead. Im that context the game starts the player much like Risen or Gothic.

As you progress in Divinity II you become more powerful and the game eventually will become easier. Late in the base game there was a distinct lack of difficulty balancing by Larian. While the game continued to be entertaining the lack of eventual difficultly was a serious issue. While the game has multiple difficulty settings encompassing casual through nightmare, this wasn't enough. An additional difficulty setting was needed or the skills needed to be toned down though the game does make you feel very powerful from a role playing perspective.

My opinion on difficulty may be more a product of playing as a pure Mage. I cannot speak for Fighter, Ranger or playing a mixed class. Also note that for a good portion of the base game the game was extremely challenging even on normal. Divinity II is not on rails and you are free to explore areas outside of your capabilities.

The player is free to allocate skills to any category. Categories are broken down by Priest, Mage, Fighter, Ranger and general category to remain unnamed. Want to be a Battle Mage, a Ranger Priest, no problem. The elasticity of the skill system allows for such combinations with the only limitation being that the skills are level locked.

Divinity II tells the story of a budding Dragon Slayer who eventually is recruited to become a Dragon Knight and defacto a Dragon. Morphing into a Dragon is cool and a significant divergence in game play. Like the Dragon Knight, Dragon abilities can be allocated and strengthened through skill points. Game-play as a Dragon will have you battling all sorts of flying beasts as well as entrenched land based weaponry. At this point in the review if you are reading through the spoiler tag I want to point out that anyone who likes their flight controls inverted is in for a big surprise and for this Larian gets an F for failure and not caring about a portion of their fan base. Larian left out inverted flight for the dragon. Thankfully we can send human beings into orbit and utilities exist to help correct this issue. Using Xpadder I was able to setup a profile to control the Dragon on an Xbox 360 game controller and invert the flight controls in the process. This meant playing the Knight with the keyboard and playing the Dragon with the game-pad. A minor inconvenience but the PC version should of been patched as the Xbox version had inverted flight.

Potions, Crafting, Botany and Gemstones all play significant roles. Potions can be purchased though there is an alchemy system based on plants. Potions are not limited to health and mana and include attribute based potions as well. Potions interestingly have many level classifications with the strength of the potion increasing with the level. Crafting is gem based and like alchemy, the ability to craft is available to every player character. When you become a Dragon Knight you get your own Battle Tower and the tower has servants. Servants of which you may weaponize and armor. Servants that will collect gems and plants for you. A welcome time saving feature implemented by Larian to keep game minutia to a minimum.

Divinity II is a 2009 production and looks like it was made in 2009 though in some places the game visually shines but over all the game still looks good. Voice acting is top notch and professional. I was disappointed to see the re-use of npc models, a pet peeve of mine, though Larian did an adequate job covering up this sin and the issue didn't appear to be as egregious as Gothic 3.

Combat was simply fun and skills utilized by the player are accessed via the standard 1 through 0 keys or can be reassigned to any key. All game functions can be re-mapped including quick save. Combat is as simple as swinging your weapon and using skills. Blocking is non-existent and points can be put into the passive skills like evade. The player can also roll out of harms way.

The Developer's Cut allows the player to start the base game and expansion as originally released or in what amounts to a debug mode. Both versions are save game compatible. In the debug version, the console is accessed via F11 and you are free to do as you wish. Want to give yourself an apple ? You can do that. Mostly I stayed out of the debug version though I will come clean so to speak and admit to pumping 5 points into encumbrance to satisfy my pack rat tendencies and because I'm no fan of dealing with limited inventories in action rpgs. It bears to mention that the starting inventory limit can be managed without putting any points into encumbrance.

Divinity II and expansion are worthy for multiple reasons. Divinity II comprises originality, professional voice acting, great game-play, questing and a great soundtrack (accessible via install). A top notch action RPG.

Can't get it to run fullscreen so it looks like crap in a tiny little box in the center of my screen. Can't even read the text to know what's what. And... so it's a developer's cut... um... so what am I supposed to do to enable the developer's console and play around with it? There's no tutorial or instructions (that I can read at least).

An amazingly solid and voluminous game. Exemplery writing. Superb music.
Guys from Larian Studios showed their passion and dedication not by talking but through this game.
