    The Dragon Knight Saga contains two great role-playing games in one brilliant package. These are games every fan of the genre should try, provided they do not mind action-based combat instead of virtual dice.

    Divinity II is simply a great game. While there might be some odd little shortfalls that pop up that keep it from the halls of true greatness, there really is just so much going for it in the way of immersive world and enjoyable gameplay that it is worth exploring.

    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.

    Judged on its own, Flames of Vengeance isn't that tempting, although the price is decent for an expansion pack. But the Dragon Knight Saga is a very good package, especially for those who didn't play the original in the first place.

    Dragon Knight Saga solves many of the problems of the original Ego Dragonis thanks to an updated engine, a heaviliy modified 360 version, and an expansion that completes the original title, letting shine many of the great things Larian achived with the original launch. The result is a fantastic Hack'n Slash with a surprising deepness, excellent mission design, great sense of humour, and tons of quality content.

    The diamond in the rough gleams more brightly, but still a chore to properly enjoy. [Jan 2010, p.56]

    The Dragon Knight Saga is a rare game that received massive fixes not from desperate fans, but from the developers themselves. The decent expansion pack improves things as well.

Still it was £14.99 and I was flush with cash, so I went for it..

    Its not something I regret, most often in RPGs you will be given a gimmick, that while it sounds cool has little practical effect beyond a few abilities. Such as being a Demigod in a popular Black Isle MMO, this never really threaded into the gameplay, but sure it was the whole reason behind the plot.

    In DKS it is regrettably similar, you won't just be chomping people as an enormous flying lizard, or at all for the most part, it is similar to a flying mount. But it is very cool, and really makes you feel powerful when you do use it.

    The plot itself is quite intresting, to a degree. It feels quite Dragon Agey to some degree at first, you are a Slayer looking to put an end to a Dragon, but that goes awry rather quickly and the real plot is revealed. There is alot of fine humor in the game, and the single thing that stands out is that it is not a party based game, where PC is guarded and supported by companions and only represents a small portion of the fighting power, yet takes full credit. You will be doing the fighting with your own hands or spells, and barring the slightly bumpy start really get the feeling you are an ancient, godlike being. Able to toast people, cast spells, shoot arrows, stab, read minds and whatever else you fancy.

    Its hard to credit the game with being non linear, what it can be credited with is being really, really good, and i'd heartily recommend it. Especially when it languishes in the shadow of the comparatively poorer Dragon Age II. This is how action RPG should be done, in this game you can and must dodge attacks using your characters great agility, rather than have your feet glued to the ground.

    Amazing game, I enjoyed it far far more than I expected.

    Another bonus I am really anal about is that you have some character customization options, such as gender, voice and hair, which can really break an RPG for me. I like a bit of, or a lot of choice.

    Being able to choose deliciously evil or snarky dialogue in nearly every conversation was something I liked, and I got to pick my own words. Not 'click here to reveal'.

The graphics are great and onTake the linear play of Fable and openness of Two Worlds, and you have got Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga. The graphics are great and on par with Two Worlds II and the atmosphere and music are perfection. I find myself smiling a lot while playing this game, whether it is the ability to read minds or simply trying to find everything on the maps. The player is encouraged to explore, while not getting utterly lost in the direction similar in games like Dragon Age or Oblivion. While the geamplay is linear, your options at the end of each quest is not. You have choices and either choice rewards you with experience; good, bad, or neutral. I've had a blast with this game and the cinematics are incredible at times. I would definitely say it was worth the $40 I paid for it. Games I like that are similar to this are Two Worlds, Fable, and Dark Messiah Might and Magic, although this game clearly surpasses each of these. The only reason it does not get a 10 is that I do not believe anygame could acheive this rating of perfection. So, 9 is the highest I would give anything. Expand

While the combat can beThe art direction and writing in this game really shine, especially in the expansion that comes bundled with it. While the combat can be hectic, the wide variety of skills leaves open plenty of options to make your character the way you want them. It lacks some of the polish of big-budget RPGs, but is packed with things to do in every nook and cranny. Unlike games which seem almost embarrassed to be fantasy games, as if they feel they have to make up for being fantastical with a serious mood, DKS just takes fantasy and runs with it. It's packed full of dry humor and subtle references, and I would recommend it to just about anyone looking for a action-RPG that doesn't hold their hand. Expand

The developers strove for perfection in every aspect of this game and when it comesAn excellent game ultimately undone by its own ambition. The developers strove for perfection in every aspect of this game and when it comes graphics, story, voice acting, and immersion they succeeded. The story is by far the most engrossing, original, and compelling story in a major RPG in a decade. The voice acting is awesome. The graphics and the action focus in combat make for true immersion. The problem, however, is that they couldn't sustain perfection in all aspects of the game and the result is at times wincing. My biggest gripe is the sheer complexity of the game. In Divinity 2 I found myself simply overwhelmed with choices: where to go, what to do, what to wear, what enhancement to put on what I'm wearing. To be truthful I found myself at times simply saying to myself, "oh the hell with it!" and going to the option screen and turning the difficulty slider down to "casual" to get through a rough fight rather than dealing with the sheer plethora of gems, charms, enchants, skills, and gear. The randomly generated loot is a particular annoyance. The AI for summoned creatures is horrible. More than anything else I was struck by the fact that it seemed like the developers took an excellent old-school RPG and mated it with some of the worst aspects of the World of Warcraft. Nevertheless, if you like RPGs you owe it to yourself to play this game. Outside The Witcher it's the best RPG I have played in the last five years. As much as I want to give this a 10 I just can't. I'm rating this game an eight but it's a "tough love" eight. I strongly think that if the developers had resisted some of their more grandiose ambitions I would be rating this the best RPG ever made. But they bit of more than they could chew, as the saying goes. Expand

A very interesting sense of humor, that pulls in the player and creates the feeling that something is accomplished . The Player Character is someone with impact, that is something that is becoming rare in modern RPG's where a cutscene defines the impact, instead of the players decision.There is lots of love in the detail, many interesting NPC's and player abilities that are actually fun. Combat is action heavy, a very rare case where the combat is doing exactly what I expect it to do-in this specific case to entertain me. The included expansion Flames of Vengeance is more character oriented, evolving around the player, and His decisions and is a welcome addition that adds more focus to the initial game.
    Overall lots of quests, funny dialogues with great voice overs ,great music and beautiful visuals that are just a expansion of the interesting atmosphere.
    A 8 as score only because I liked better the more difficult and even unpolished approach of Ego Draconis, namely some specific locations that are combat wise made simpler in DKS.

Campaign one: you start in a small village. There was a waypoint, I went to the waypoint, and did not find the quest item/people. I was stuck in the village. No guidance, just running in circles. No combat, no action. I said screw it.

    Campaign two: you start in a city after a muddy intro. You talk to people in the city, they babble, and give you a meaningless side quest. I didn't know what the main quest was. There was no waypoint, no guidance. I had no clue what I needed to do, no action, no combat. I was confused at this stupid game. I found a talking tomato giving me a side-quest. The gentlemen's club in the town had no women, just locked doors and puzzles. Then I found a talking tree that zapped people. I died. The graphics can not redeem this pointless game. I gave up on this game.
