  1. Divinity II is a very solid game, and all that Gothic 3 should have been.
  2. The strongest aspects of Divinity II are the excellent story, so long as you are willing to dig it out, and the incredibly open-ended character skills customization. While this game certainly has its flaws, the pros far outweigh the cons, and it is a game that cannot be sipped but must be gulped or possibly even quaffed!
  3. An excellent ARPG that takes the best elements of Divine Divinity and updates them in a imaginative game full of flavor and personality. Engaging combat system, a rich character development, interesting sidequests... all that are the bricks of a very solid game that could be even better without some major problems, like the ending.

    The pacing is poor and it's a technical wreck. [Feb 2010, p.82]
  5. You'll have to get comfortable with the game's difficulty and spartan UI. You'll need to tame the camera and overlook the sometimes low-budget visuals, sketchy tech, long load times and a host of little bugs. It sounds like a lot of work, but Divinity 2 does have its charms and more often than not, I felt surprisingly compelled to see what was waiting around the next turn of the road.
  6. Divinity II is the kind of game that falls neatly into the category of "guilty pleasure" for me. It's an RPG that doesn't really break new ground, but plays well enough and provides a challenge.

    There is fun to be had in Divinity II, especially in terms of exploration and customization. Unfortunately, the game's poorly plotted story and uneven difficulty will challenge the patience of most players, even those who enjoy parts of the game.

    Great Game, Great Storyline. Wonderful to fly around as a dragon in such a diverse and rich world.

Great and thrilling story line that captured me through more than 100 hours (both the main game and the DLC). The mission and the variety of how to solve those missions and the uniqueness of each one sets it apart from your normal mission games. The story line is so good that it sucks you into that world it is creating and the the music is so good that it is suiting for each situation.
    Control, coming after playing Divine Divinity/Beyond Divinity and Divinity:Original Sin, I needed some time to adjust (I adjusted after around 20 hours of playing). but after that, i got through the game, maybe using a keyboard was not helping as much as well.

    A must play game...

    This game is what I've been looking for. AWESOME, period. Action-packed third-person against huge monsters dragons goes toe-to-toe with This game is what I've been looking for. AWESOME, period. Action-packed third-person against huge monsters dragons goes toe-to-toe with the skin-to-skin combat; Charging a dragon with melee sword in hands, blasting with courage and action combos. Can't forget the adrenaline pumped up when comboing a massive dragon directly unto it, thus win by slaying it physically. Actually I didn't think it's a RPG. It IS an action beat-em-up combined with stunning, huge areas to explore and interactions. The features to craft Diablo-style random items are fantastic. This game would have great replay value. This is game is simply 'awestorm' to me. Expand

    Great RPG. Great Story. Great Gameplay. Absolutely awful ending. I can't say much, because I don't want to spoil the ending, but it Great RPG. Great Story. Great Gameplay. Absolutely awful ending. I can't say much, because I don't want to spoil the ending, but it really was the worse ending I've ever seen in a game. You get two unique items RIGHT before the game ends - literally, you get the items, BAM - cutscene, credits. The ending is totally anti-climactic too, and totally disappointing. It's a cliffhanger. The ending is just so bad it docked one whole point from my rating, and it's all I can talk about. The rest of the game was solid, albeit somewhat tedious to do all the sidequests (but then, I'm a completionist), and the physics could have used some work. But it was a good game. EXCEPT FOR THIS CRAPPY ENDING. I spent 5 days playing this, and the ending just... Augh! Expand

    right now this game deserves a number between 7-8. You can tell it's developed by a small studio and i agree with some of the flaws. right now this game deserves a number between 7-8. You can tell it's developed by a small studio and i agree with some of the flaws. While dungeons and indoor area's generally look pretty good, the graphics outside are pretty dated. This bothered me a little at first, but the world is so detailed and fun to explore, that i quickly started to look past it. So graphics aren't great, but they do the job well enough. The music, like with all divinty games is excellent! Combat wasn't very convincing to me at first, but i grew into it. he game is challenging, fast and thanks to the wide selection of skills it's still pretty enjoyable. The world isn't very huge, but it's big enough and there's tons of stuff, items, gear, sidequests and dungeons to explore. The game does this very well. And it has some very cool stuff like dragon flying and having your own battle tower. hmm, i didnt mean to start writing a whole review actually :) In short, if you can look past the technical flaws (mind you, i find the game still pretty polished), there's really a lot of fun to be had. Otherwise i'd have given this game a 9. If you're a fan of action rpg's you really should check this out. finally, i don't want to preach, but don't leech games from small devs like this. buy it if you like the game! We don't want another iron lore, troika or ascaron on our hands. Expand
