  • Summary: You are a servant of the Divine - scourge of necromancers and sorcerers alike. Your purpose in life is to fight all that is evil using any means possible. Your dilemma? during an intense battle with one of the great necromancers, a demon drags you into its universe. There you are soul-forged with a Death-knight. You are cursed and destined to spend the rest of eternity bonded to this creature of evil. Or maybe not... The Death-knight dislikes the soul forging as much as you do and together you embark on a great adventure. You both have a common goal - to undo the soul forging. You and your unlikely companion quickly figure out that the only way to rid this curse is if you unlock the secret of riftrunning ? an ancient art that allowed the prison universe?s indigenous population to travel between universes. Your quest is set: To become a Riftrunner! [Hip Games] Expand

  1. 90
    If you're looking for a lengthy (as in 100+ hours) RPG that blends quick and dirty gameplay with heaping plates of detail and sophisticated character development, no one else comes close to this series.
  2. Good stuff for RPG fans everywhere, though a bit too difficult and time-consuming for the casual gamer.
  3. 80
    If the game balance had matched the creativity and attention to overall design put into this title, I would probably have given it a 90, because the detail of construction and depth of the environment are truly excellent.
  4. Larian has escaped formulaic RPGs and brought us a game truly worth the 80+ hours it takes to discover everything within. Fans of the "Baldur's Gate" and "Icewind Dale" series will find something familiar here and experience a strange form of nostalgia.
  5. Not a "Diablo II" killer or a vast improvment over the first Divinity title, it is however a sometimes frustrating game, with limited replay value.
  6. An incredibly generic RPG. Often playable, but sometimes frustrating and never original through its 100 hours plus playing time. In a PC market that thrives on innovation, Larian Games seem to have missed something fundamental.
  7. Ostensibly worthy, but fundamentally uninspiring – the only value is the size.

    the game had an interesting plot, a bunch of interesting characters, reasonable gameplay and it was pretty long too. defiantly recommended

    but if you want to enjoy the game you have to realize the truth.. you will never escape the demonic world where the game takes place

    This is the most disappointing rpg title i have ever had the opportunity to play. Amongst the numerous reasons for this, is its lack of plot, infuriating battlefields with limitless foes and no big bad guy, a must in my opinion, and frustrating interface. It is absolutely no comparison to the epic boiware rpgs, so if that is what youre looking for don't pursue beyond divinity. Expand
