    The good news is, the sprites are large and the rats are neutral. That's right, finally an RPG in which rats do not attack you.

    And that's all the good I have to say. Beyond Divinity is actually very, very annoying to play. Its interface is unbearable, with its windows that pile up indefinitely and never close, its mini-map moves that are not followed by the camera, and countless

    Beyond Divinity is actually very, very annoying to play. Its interface is unbearable, with its windows that pile up indefinitely and never close, its mini-map moves that are not followed by the camera, and countless other unpleasantnesses.

    Story-wise, the introduction is inept, the voice of the Dark Knight ridiculous, the dialogues pointless... Besides, when a demon is called Samuel, I can't take him and the rest seriously. Needless to say, I gave up quickly on this one.

    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.

  1. 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.
  2. If you’re feeling patient and want a massive adventure then BD is worth a look. If you have "Sacred" in your library, keep playing till you get to level 50 and then see how you feel.
  3. The puzzles are also annoyingly addictive.
