    Everything we loved about old RPGs in a complete, modern package. It's hard, it's well thought out, there's tons of options and most importantly, tons of fun. [Issue#244]

    Certainly, I have no hesitation in recommending Original Sin to RPG fans old and new, provided that you're up for a challenge from very early on and don't expect to romp through, Diablo-style.

    The classic RPG is making a comeback. After Shadowrun and Wasteland 2, this time it’s Divinity: Original Sin’s turn. This Kickstarter project from Belgium shows how fantasy elements can be used to their fullest extent. These developers understand what’s so great about magic and discovering a world. This is a tribute to the best Bioware, Obsidian, and D&D games that were produced with pen and paper over the last thirty years, had to offer.

    Thrilling old-school role playing game with total freedom and challenging battles.

    Divinity: Original Sin is able to both channel the roots of its old-school RPG ancestors such as Ultima and Baldur’s Gate, while also improving the genre as a whole in the process. From start to finish, Divinity: Original Sin is an incredible experience that is full of deep and engaging roleplaying. The true turn-based combat is a breath of fresh air in an industry obsessed with quick satisfaction and it brings you back to a time of tactics and thought. The roleplaying potential presented in quests and dialogue options puts Divinity: Original Sin decidedly above its peers in most aspects, but leaves room for improvement down the line. Larian Studios is on a strong path to returning their long-running franchise to the spotlight, for fans both new and old.

    It feels like there’s a very good game inside Divinity: Original Sin, but it’s hidden away behind a thousand glitches and gameplay problems.

    Most of the good things have been said alredy by previous reviewers. Literally the best RPG to come out in at least a decade.

Almost perfect. Especially great if you have someone to play it with.
    Pros: great story, tons of content, interesting characters, funny and entertaining side quests (no go there and kill 10 chicken), very nice combat, you can twink your characters a lot, lots of dialogues, no system issues the drop in drop out works perfectly. the environment is very nicely reacting and the AI is actually pretty smart!
    Cons: the way the game handles the main characters is somewhat bad for the online stuff. I play this together with a friend of mine and the hosts gets to build both characters and only he keeps the saves. I find this rather odd in a very well made game that is based on coop.
    Middle ground: the graphic and the animations looks extremely nice, but I don't really dig the cartoony style. Also the music sometimes exceptionally cool, but sometimes gets extremely out of space (happy whacky-looney in middle of combat for example)

    All together I'm very happy to play with this one it is a really nice game! I would recommend it for everyone who really likes oldchool rpgs with LOTS of dialogues.
