  1. If you liked "Diablo 2," but are perhaps looking for a gaming experience with more depth and story, look no further.
  2. A well-designed, open-ended, lengthy role-playing game sporting impressive graphics and sound and a lot of replay value.
  3. While I typically look upon design appropriation negatively, Divine Divinity’s conciseness and irreverence set put it an uncontested step ahead of the opposition.
  4. Although it suffers from a few problems and annoyances, overall Divine Divinity is an expansive and quite enjoyable RPG.
  5. 80
    The level of player interaction and attention to detail rivals that of "Morrowind" and easily surpasses the "Baldur's Gate" series.
  6. There can be some frustrations with gameplay, but the overall experience is a positive one.
  7. A bona fide labour of love that evidently had the blinkers on.

I played this a good few years ago closer to when it came out and picked it up recently when it came out on Steam due to nostalgia (and it's damn cheap!), half expecting it to be crap because of age - like playing one of the first Pokemon games again. On the contrary, I loved every minute of it just like when I first played it through. I don't usually play games for the story but I found myself reading every line of dialogue and doing every quest. Unlike most games, the side quests are all very-well developed story-wise. Combat can be as complicated and fast paced as you want it to be as your character is pretty much completely customisable. You can pick any spell or skill no matter what 'class' you pick so you can be the hybrid stealthy mage-ninja you always wanted to be. The map is huge and exploration is extremely rewarding. There's always a polymorphed boar or a magic wishing well just around the corner to keep you on your toes. There are tonnes of secrets as well, secret items and quests, treasure maps and hidden areas, allowing this game to cater for casuals and those traditional OCD-completionists. The game falters somewhat in difficultly, to be honest. Generic monsters tend to be hacked down in a few hits but you can easily turn the wrong corner or get to the end of the dungeon only to be completely annhilated by a certain mob. The game isn't so much about strategy, but building the best character possible to deal as much damage while staying alive as possible. The game feels a bit like what Skyrim should have been, if you take graphics out of the equation. Expand

    Great role playing game with so much to do and to many things too discover, your level just keeps growing in every thing you do.

For someIncredibly immersive, with a stunning sound track, great 2D graphics, non-linear, a varied skill tree, great humour and dialogue. For some reason this game did hack'n'slash perfectly. Some say it's a beautiful Diablo clone. If the weapon types and some skills were more balanced, a few areas were more fleshed out and a certain stun bug was removed this game would of been astounding. I always wanted to play more. There is so little to criticize really. Expand

    While it doesn't contribute much to storyline, the gameplay more than makes up for it.

    I remember playing this game demo back in the day, it was released in the same era of diablo and the Baldur's gates.
    I remember quitting the demo 15 minutes in due to my disgust with the graphics.

    12 years after I have received this game for free with divinity original sin, and decided to take this acclaimed game for another spin.

    Its terrible, absolutely terrible, the graphics, the story telling, the clunky combat system.
    It's lack of immersion, lack of atmosphere.
    This time I survived a few hours in before I finally hit the delete button. It tried to copy paste diablo style of gaming without innovating and without the multiplayer which really made the diablo game so successful.
    It was supposed to be a diablo with an interactive story.
    but the story doesn't even come close to bioware golden era or cd project.
    And the gameplay is a pale imitation of the successful diablo 2.

    Do yourself a favor and stay away from this game even if its free.
    There are much better stories out there for you to experience and many games which are a lot more fun that this.
