Well, after knowing almost nothing about the Divinity games from Larian Studios, I decided to give this one a try, being the highest rated game critically so far. And boy I was glad I did.
The first thing that intrigued me and caught me completely off guard was how light hearted, quirky and funny this game was. I don't think I have played a game this self-aware and spinning itself in a fun and clever way. I was smiling and laughing throughout a lot of the dialogue and even just seeing some random stuff out of the corner of my eye. Due to this, you'll do and see things in this game that you might never have done in any game period. A few examples? A talking seashell. Distinct country, French, British etc. accents in talking animals. Playing matchmaker for cats. Literally killing a party member to advance a plot (obviously resurrecting them). The list goes on, but so many sidequests were funny, smart and brought a smile to my face.
Another is that the game is designed around two protagonists, not one, and I found this fascinating. Obviously a coop mode online is welcome but even the single player was good enough; I don't think playing with a stranger will be good for letting yourself take time and absorbing dialogue.
The combat was also smart, tactical and fun. But not for everyone - as it's turn based. Seeing as how I played Fallout 1/2, I adjusted very quickly and by the end I loved the combat in this game quite a bit more than the Fallout games given the range of experimentation you're allowed, which is often rewarding. Classic rules in a fantasy RPG apply; get a melee tank warrior, a mage, a rogue and another of your choice (I went with a melee DPS warrior) and manipulate the battlefield maximising the use of your AP/turns. The game greatly rewards smart tactics and manipulating the battlefield, especially when it comes to the environment. Basic mage combos like water + electricity can stun groups of enemies for several turns, or oil slick + fire to set many of them ablaze. Using obstacles like Ice walls is great in corridors where you want the enemy to attack your tank which you can buff. I'm thinking that 2 mages might be more powerful than the setup I used; adding to replayability to experiment next time.
The graphics, while not hyper realistic; were beautiful, complementing the quirky game very well with its somewhat cartoony models, lots of environmental effects and made this world feel full of personality and life. The ways in which you interact with the environment are also very deep, as you often have to move basic containers around to uncover hidden treasure or disable pressure traps. A high perception character is very much recommended to get the most out of secrets, along with a mage to manipulate the environment. The music is beautiful too, pulling me into this world too.
The characters were pretty well written, and while I really liked the main characters you interacted with in the main story, I had a lot more fun interacting with the weird side characters like Bellegar and my favourite NPC Bicky Bomb. Your companions are pretty interesting; some more than others, but you'll value them more in this game for what they add to your party rather than their stories.
Unfortunately, there are some moments in the game that were somewhat frustrating. There often came times where I felt a puzzle was more trial and error as I had no idea if the switch I just pulled even did anything, or whether I needed to find more switches to open a particular door. The solutions to puzzles are almost never obvious and it's likely you'll spend too much time figuring out what you're supposed to be doing, since the game doesn't tell you most of the time. The tutorial also doesn't tell you some essential things, such as telling you about skillbooks that add new skills, or how to craft properly or repair. Inventory management was also not very good, as you have to repair all your equipment one piece at a time, you can't move multiple items at a time, and it's not very smooth moving items in and out of containers. It does feel like the game gets better the more you learn about it, but it's quite punishing for new players who don't look at walkthroughs or guides. In fact you might need to do it once or twice on first playthrough.
Loot is pretty rewarding and somewhat similar to that of Diablo II/III, and there is constant incentive to upgrade your gear as many NPCs usually have something worth buying, even the talking animals! So it pays to pay attention to get the most out of your options.
This is probably one of my favourite Fantasy RPGs up there with Skyrim, The Witcher and Dragon Age. If you get a bit tired of these grim and dark fantasy settings, this game will feel like a welcome breath of fresh air. Definitely recommended!

In my early 20s I vowed to stay away from hardcore RPGs due to the amount of time I find myself losing when I play them. Enter Divinity Original Sin EE. My life is now officially over especially since part two is due out end of the year.

10/10 for getting your girlfriend to breakup with you when you don't have the balls to do it yourself.

Absolutely amazing game. Initially I went at it alone and got completely hooked. Excellent turn-based combat with systems that allow creative strategies, lots of interesting (and funny) dialogue, always many different ways to solve quests and advance in the world. Some of the broader themes of the plot are a bit lost on me, either a tad too weird or I simply didn't "get it", but that didn't prevent me in the slightest from enjoying the game. Got pretty far into it before my girlfriend looked over my shoulder and said that it looked fun. We rarely get to play games together, so of course I suggested we restart and try the local multiplayer mode. We began playing using two controllers, and it was just a wonderful experience for both of us. She even started nagging on me to play more - whaaat?! I'm usually the one to take on that role! :D

To summarize, I dare say that it's the best RPG I've ever played.

Don't let the cute look and the humor of this game fool you - This game is hardcore. I'm not a fan of the cutesy, and this game just sucked me in right from the start. (I can't stand Torchlight 2, for instance, but love Grim Dawn..different games than this game completely, but maybe you get where I'm coming from in trying to explain my tastes?) The perfect combination of old school, party based gameplay, and new school tech. It's beautiful to look at, and a pleasure to play. The difficulty will kick you square in the ♥♥♥. That's part of the beauty, in my opinion - Experimenting and working towards that perfect build over and over, discovering what works and what does not work. The beginning can be a tad slow, but when you get past the first oh...ten levels or so of character progression, things get really interesting as far as gameplay goes. This is a must-play if you're a fan of the genre. One of the best of its type since Baldur's Gate 2. As I'm writing this, the Steam Summer Sale has this game for $20. That's one of the best bargains you're going to get for your money if you like this type of game. When I purchased this game, I paid $40 and don't regret it for a second. Just don't expect Diablo 3 or for this game to hold your hand very much at all. Trust me, this game will wreck you...in a good way. When you discover the synergy of your builds and things start really coming together, it's a great feeling.

I just started playing this and 12.3 hours later I realized I may have take a break! When I was younger, I played D&D, Baldur's Gate, Ultima, Diablo, Zelda, and even some old Commador64 games. I might be a bit bias. I really enjoy this turn-based RPG. This has excellent music. Everything is voice acted and done superlative! The animals are even voice-acted! I find the side conversations quite whimsical. I actually enjoy the little intricacies like being able to barter with anyone that you meet. There was a lot of work put into this game and it shows.

I have a four year old computer (as of 2016) and a old graphics card (nvidia 480 gtx) and can play with the graphics setting on ultra. So far, so good.

Larian Studios has my full attention.

Step 1: Make best RPG in years ("Divinity: OS") through Kickstarter.
Step 2: Take profits from "D:OS" and put back into game; creating "D:OS Enhanced Edition" and giving it to owners of "D:OS" for free.
Step 3: Head back to Kickstarter to raise over $2 million for Divinity Original Sin 2
Step 4: Work their asses off to make a kick ♥♥♥ game ACTUALLY utilizing money raised.

Seriously every single developer needs to take a long hard look at this team and ask themselves? Are we ♥♥♥♥ing incompetent? Yes is the answer.

This crowdfunded RPG shouldn't be missed. Larian deserves a lot of praise for this. What stands out the most is how well designed, coded, and implemented the gameplay mechanics are. Lots of attention to detail here, and so much interactivity, such as the use of the elements (heat, water, air), being able to pick up and throw any reasonably sized object with ease, all of the different statuses. The UI is also good, although the hotbar should be expandable as it's annoying to have to cycle through them. This game has many different classes and a fairly complex leveling system, so that every character build will at least feel somewhat unique (although not quite as much as say the Neverwinter Nights games).

With all that being said, I can't help but feel this game is somewhat overrated by the press. It doesn't have the most role-playing in the world, and not even close. Yes, it has considerably more role-playing than the very limited Witcher franchise (they are based on novels after all), but compared to the all time greats it can be found lacking. Compared to Pillars of Eternity, it is also lacking in role-playing. There isn't much freedom in defining your characters' personalities, less than more recent BioWare games even. You are always a pair of Source Hunters out to save the world from evil, and there is only one dialogue "skill" which is Charisma; however Charisma itself leads to three different dialogue options (each drawing from your Charisma score) which are Intimidate, Charm, and Reason. What you choose, and what you do throughout the game will alter the effective of these, putting points into traits such as Individualistic, Pragmatism, and more, but all these do is give you boosts to either Intimidate, Charm, or Reason, as well as a boost to certain other stats like Willpower (which is used only for resisting mind-affecting abilities).

At the end of the day, the dialogue is quite restrictive compared to games like Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout: New Vegas, Neverwinter Nights 2, and Pillars of Eternity. Also, the game has two protagonists which you make at character creation, yet it lacks a party dialogue system found in games such as Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir and Wasteland 2. This means, only one of your characters can be in a conversation and the other cannot freely intervene.

The quests are quite restricting compared to great RPGs. In order to beat this game I had to do things I didn't want to do, things that my character in my mind would not do. This game, despite the open level design, forces you down a specific path. Disappointing for an RPG.

Level design is very open. You are rarely limited in where you can go. However, enemies do not scale down to your level so many places will be utterly inaccessible just for this reason. Balance is a bit of an issue in this game, as generic human enemies of the same level have far more AP than you can ever have at that level, and wield weapons that are much higher level yet used with no penalty (and usually have more initiative too). In combat, enemies can open doors with no AP cost despite being nowhere near them. Then there are things such as one human enemy who is able to cast a master level spell with no cooldown. The imbalance is so obvious when (SPOILER ALERT) Bairdotr turns on you; one second she is part of your party, the next she levels up, has top tier equipment, and has far more AP than she should (unless her build changed to have most attribute points spent in Speed).

A shame, a mistake, and serious design flaws that don't affect smarter turn-based games. And then some enemies just have essentially no real weakness (not even talking about Source demons obviously since they do have a weakness and that's plot related). So there is some synthetic difficulty in this game, but not game breaking. A general balance issue is that archers are overpowered on both sides, enemy and player.

But many of these imbalances are somewhat offset by how stupid the AI is. The AI is nowhere near as smart as XCOM 2 and Enemy Unknown. Not that this is consolation mind you, this is just another flaw.

Furthermore, leveling up in this game is an extremely slow process. Far slower than any other RPG I've played. Too slow even, as it can slow down the pace a bit and it restricts the amount of combat abilities you get.

Speaking of combat abilities, I'd say there is less than Dragon Age: Origins and Pillars of Eternity. I'm used to Neverwinter Nights 2 so I'm spoiled and wish for more, but at least all of the abilities in this game are well designed and none seem useless. Some classes will have far more than others, naturally.

Writing and character development are not a focus of this game. Its tone is lighthearted, the real focus is on gameplay and exploration. Art design is pretty good, locations stand out a bit but nothing blows my mind and environments can seem more repetitive than some other games. The scale is large; locations are big and have a decent amount of detail and hidden places, but again nothing mind blowing.

Enhanced Edition contains many incremental improvements over the original, and they really add up. This game was crafted with a lot of care and programming skill. Now if only it had industry leading writers and directors. The second game has Chris Avellone on board, so I can't wait for that!

I stole a fish once in the city. Went out exploring the world. Went back to the city. The guards and several civilians attack me immediately. Had to kill them all. Got minus points in reputation. All because a fish in a barrel.

Teleported an enemy off from the platform we were fighting on, my old male mage says "wheeeeeeee"


Absolutely love the game. Have not yet finished it, and will update once I do.
Personally I do not like turn-based combat, but this game made me change my mind about the whole thing.
Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced edition is definitely one of my top 5 games and I'm sure I'll play it over and over again.

Pros:
♥Decent character costumization.
♥The humor. Oh the humor. I mean, I found old smelly panties and got an achievement; Memory motel. And they give you 1+ charisma.
♥So many different ways to play the game, a lot of abilities and different combos.
♥Great soundtrack
♥Every single NPC is voice acted. Even the damn pets.
♥The story is great.
♥Does not feel repetitive.
♥Excellent graphics, incredibly beautiful.
♥The skilltrees. I spend a lot of time just figuring out where to put the ability points (which you don't earn that easily. Takes quite some time to level up), to make everything go together well.
♥When doing a puzzle, you need to figure it out yourself by any means necessary and sometimes it feels like using teleport was not the intended way to solve it, but anything you do is a legit way to do it even if it feels like you cheated the game. I love that about Divinity.
♥The crafting system.
♥Stealthing. There's nothing suspicious about a giant walking bush inside stealing things.

Cons:
♥Targeting in combat can get tricky. Have several times walked around an enemy instead of attacking him due to this, and there's no way to stop it. It's incredibly annoying cause that one hit could have changed the outcome of the fight.
♥Some things can feel dragged out. It takes much more time than it should have.
♥It's very unforgiving. You can steal things too easily by accident and suddenly you have to kill everyone around you. Just gotta hope you saved not too long ago. There should be a pop up asking "Are you sure you want to steal this while not in stealth?".


Overall it's an amazing game. I'd recommend it for the full price even tho I got it on a sale. 9.5/10

Highly recommend this game to anyone who likes RPG turn based. Reminds me of Neverwinter Nights, Icewind Dale from the old days.
Very addictive and has good replayability with good mechanics.
The Enhanced Edition is simply a huge plus, specially with voice acting.
