    It is not only recommended for fans of the original game, but for anyone who want to embark into a new roleplaying adventure with a lot of intelligent humour.

    Traditional it may be but Divinity 2 Dragon Knight Saga is an excellent RPG that is up there with the very best on the Xbox 360.

    The Dragon Knight Saga is a solid RPG with a funny gameplay and a nice proposal.

    While it shows significant improvement over its previous release, Divinity II's visuals and gameplay still lack the level of polish we've come to expect from this generation's entries.

    Ultimately, The Dragon Knight Saga is a game at odds with itself. Its solid writing and quest design has to contend with balance issues and a myriad of other minor problems such as a sporadic autosave function that feels more like an afterthought.

    It's sad to see that Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga hasn't become a good game. The graphics may look nice but in the end the gameplay will leave you disappointed.

    Holy Shnuzel this game kicks ass!! I am bewildered at all the low scores and poor reviews given to it by the trend following drongos outHoly Shnuzel this game kicks ass!! I am bewildered at all the low scores and poor reviews given to it by the trend following drongos out there. Having not played the original I decided to have a punt on this for a laugh, and I'm now 35 hours in to one of the best games I've played since Mass Effect 1&2. In my little gaming world Divinity 2 is sort of a spiritual successor to Summoner 2 on the PS2 - (too many 2's!! lol), even though they have little in common from a business perspective they both value fun, atmosphere, and genuine RPG elements over being 'sellable' to Jo Public. The blend of humour, epicness and grandeur, is perfect, making the rol-playing aspects of the game a joy to get involved with - the local Barnsley accents are particualrly cool. Then the combat, whilst not perfect, is still really fun and gives the players various ways of approaching the game - all down to how you want to build your character. The musical score fits to a tee, very immersive, the challenge is good, and although the graphics certainly aren't great at all, who's complaining? Not me, because this is one of the best games and RPGs I've played in ages. Avoid Dragon Age 2, go for this instead. Expand

It is huge and full of fun things to do. The voice acting is excellent and the story is good as well. There are a lot of nods to movies and books in the names of characters and some of the achievements. This game is totally engaging right from the start and once you get the hang of how things work you will have hours of fun. The only issue is with the escort mission that is quite tedious to get through but other than that I loved this game. Expand

    Having not played the Original Divinity or its sequel, I don't have much to base this game on its improvements. I have however, gotten sickHaving not played the Original Divinity or its sequel, I don't have much to base this game on its improvements. I have however, gotten sick of most modern RPGs and this game is a breath of fresh air. The writing isn't as good as a Bioware game, nor does it look as pretty. However, this game has something that Mass Effect and Dragon Age lacked: exploration. The world of Divinity II is huge and beautiful and it only gets better the more you play. Much of the games design is great too, but you'll have to look past some of the games problems to get there. There is some freezing issues but most of the glitches you'll see in the game don't effect the over all playability of the game. Once you get past this you'll see an RPG that is more about fun and enjoying yourself than about nerdy stats and grinding loot fests. For instance, you get access to any skills in the game, regardless of what class you choose. This allows you to create your hero in any way you want. Want to be a ranged weapon specialist who can summon demons and shoot fire? You got it! The over all menu system is easy and from about half way in the game, it gets even better, allowing you go send anything you pick up to your "Battle Tower," a central hub that acts as your own personal shop/training grounds/evil necromancer's lab. There are other fun unique things as well, such as the ability to turn into a dragon on command and having your own Frankenstein-esque creature that you piece together from body parts scattered in the game. This game is a hidden gem, destined to be a sleeper hit that any RPG fan who just wants to have fun exploring a huge and endearing world. Expand

All in all well worth playing. HINT Upgrade your fireball spell to maximum even if you are warrior class. Expand

While it may offer exploration, the combat is uninspired,If you're looking for a fun RPG to play, dont even give this one a second look. While it may offer exploration, the combat is uninspired, unintuitive, and fails to be fun, the UI is a mangled hodgepodge of first and third person, and the controls were seemingly mapped by someone who has never played a videogame before. I mean, who on earth thought it was a good idea to make the right trigger jump? Or to make the action button the left bumper?

    For its time, the graphics are alright, mostly. The cutscenes are beautiful, and the art design is similar to Fable 1. However, seemingly in an attempt to make everything look more detailed, the art can tend to have a bit too much going on, leading it to look like a bit of a mess. The part of it that irks me the most is the laziness in the creation of the main character. The choices you have for the customization are woefully minimal, restricting you to 3 hairstyles, 2 hair colors, and 8 faces that all look roughly the same. If you're a fan of animation, you may also be irked by the fact that the main characters hands were never given proper animation, and simply left in a resting pose. Just something about the fact that I'm not even holding the sword I'm supposed to be swinging is simply glued to the palm of my hand really bothers me. In most games, such a lack of detail would only be allowed on a character so far from sight that they could only be properly seen with cheats.

    As for the story? It's a bit cliche, really. You're a dragonslayer who gains the ability to turn into a dragon, making him an enemy of both sides of a big war, and only he can stop the big, bad villain who's causing it from behind the scenes. There is a bit of charm to a few moments in the dialogue, but other parts can feel as cringeworthy as reading a short story written by an edge-obsessed american middle-schooler.

    Has it held up after all of these years? Nope. Certainly not. I cant even say it did well for its time. The Bethesda RPGs, which are well-known for not being the prettiest games, blow this one out of the water, despite being a bit hard on the eyes. It may be blasphemy as a gamer, but I honestly even enjoyed Fable 3 more than this game.
