Last year, Divinity: Original Sin was one of my favourite video games when it released. The new Enhanced Edition reminds me why, but it it not content to simply sit back on prior success. Meaningful changes were made in thousands of large and subtle ways, and the result is one of the best RPG experiences that can be found on either PC or console.
Difficulties with the interface aside, Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition is an intriguing, challenging, relentlessly charming game that serves as a refreshing break from bleaker RPGs that have dominated the rest of the year. It absolutely shouldn't be overlooked by RPG fans who never played it on PC. For those who have played the original, enough has changed in the story and progression that the remastered edition is well worth a second purchase to play locally with friends.
Divinity: Original Sin never ceases to impress. Be it the deep role-play mechanics, the marvelous quest structure, the beautiful soundtrack or the gorgeous visuals, the Enhanced Edition feels like the complete package. With inclusion of voice acting and the possibility of split-screen gaming with a friend, the title is a must-have for console RPG enthusiasts.
Not only does it have an impressive combat system and interesting quests, it features a reactive world that you can truly leave your mark on. Add in a winning sense of humour, well thought-out gameplay systems, and a charming aesthetic, and you're left with an RPG that would be a sin to miss.
After two playthroughs I would encourage everyone to try this game out. Maybe together with a friend (couch co-op or both with separate PS4 is possible). The fight system is interesting and there are so many ways to beat the game. Also the humor in this game is fantastic. For skilled players there is a permadeath mode, which really added some spice to the game.
D:OS is a great turn-based isometric RPG on the PS4.
It was crowd funded and a couple of years later a sequel was released which s lauded as one of the greatest RPGs of all time.
I've personally put around 80 hours into the campaign and I really enjoyed it. Full disclosure, I haven't completed it, but I am in the last stages of the game.
D:OS is really well written, its smart, the characters are unique and have personality. The actual story is a bit naff, I've played better, I've played worse.
The reason I haven't finished it is that the gameplay is too slow for the world to be as big as it is, also, there are well documented issues with the quest system.
Gameplay-wise, combat is pretty difficult, I've played 79 of my 80 hours on "Normal" and have just lowered it to "Explorer" to hopefully help me finish the it. Now, normal wasn't too hard, it was just too slow, the turn-based combat just took far, far too long.
The quest system, it doesn't hold your hand, the game leaves it up to the player to read the quest notes and figure out what to do next. This still works, but you'll find yourself frequently scrolling through the quest list, reading and re-reading notes to try and figure out where to go or what to do. Its not very intuitive and doesn't really benefit the player at all.
D:OS is great, it is, its just massive, slow and complex, I want to finish it, I want to see the story's outcome, but man its a big ask, especially because I want to play the sequel.
Прошел уже после того, как прошел и даже перепрошел вторую часть. Должен отметить, что первая дивинити куда более душная часть, чем вторая, и по ней очень четко видно насколько большая работа над ошибками была проведена во второй части. Огромному количеству игроков игра может показаться скучной и неинтересной, ну а если оценивать объективно, то это 7 баллов из 10.
I would say I am a casual fan of the turn based party CRPG genre. So something like the accessible Wasteland 2 and Shadow Run series is more my thing. I heard great things about this DOS series. So I decided to pick up both DOS1 and DOS2 enhanced editions.
The game looks, sounds and plays ok. After several hours of adventuring I kind of drifted off. I just felt like I was in another generic fantasy land that I didn't care or even give a crap about.
Not saying games need a great story or great characters. Spent way to much time in Skyrim/Fallout 3/4 to prove that statement true. The exploration factor and loot hooks was enough with those games.
Nothing really pulled me in with DOS. Not the story, characters, loot, exploration, combat. I really wanted to like this one and still have DOS2 to try.
Pandemic retry and the PS4 version has a annoying audio bug with missing combats sounds. Changing the one of the three audio options in the PS4 dashboard does nothing. Restarting the game was supposed to be the next fix and that is a totally RNG outcome, wtf!? The lack of audio really breaks the gameplay experience. Maybe 6/10 if they ever fix the audio.
SummaryDivinity Original Sin: Enhanced Edition is a much lauded Role-Playing-Game that blends deep customization and humor with dynamic turn based combat. Either in online co-op, split-screen co-op on your TV, or even alone, take advantage of a classless RPG system to create your heroes and conquer the evils of Rivellon!
