    Already one of the greatest RPG games of all time, the new enhanced edition of Divinity: Original Sin improves the game on so many levels that it touches a level of almost absolute perfection.

    Larian Studios has taken an already brilliant game and made it better. Original Sin Enhanced Edition is borderline perfect. [Dec 2015, p.59]

    Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition is a grand adventure that rewards those who are patient enough to wade through some of the game's less polished aspects.

    Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition offers a well-written story, in-depth character development and tactical combat that will be more than enough to please most tactical fans.

    Superb story, superb settings, superb characterisation, superb quests, superbly paced.

    Superb story, superb settings, superb characterisation, superb quests, superbly paced.
    I've played RPGs for years, from Morrowind to Fallout 4. D:OS took me back to the old school RPGs but with a contemporary feel.
    Player choice is wide open, do what you want the way you want to. There is no right or wrong way to play.
    And this gives the game replayability (I like value for money lol).
    There's masses of variety - strategise a battle, craft, figure out a complex puzzle, or just go exploring and see what you come across - nothing becomes a chore because there is choice.
    This goes into my top 10 RPGs of all time.

It is one of the best turn based gems out there, the humor, the gameplay and the c&c make this game quite unique. It made me buy for the first time a game still in development, Original Sin 2, and this game too looks very promising. Great series well worth the money and the time. Expand

    There was an obvious effort to lessen the User Score of this game but it won't work simply because it's so good.

    There was an obvious effort to lessen the User Score of this game but it won't work simply because it's so good.
    Any person that enjoys RPGs should play D:OS and even more now with the Enhanced Edition.
    It's a really wonderful game with excellent mechanics, very very few bugs, pretty visuals, a deep character system and many many more good aspects that should be enjoyed, not written in a review.
    And D:OS 2 is on the way! Hurray!!!

Fun writing, good graphics and fantastic mechanics. Highly recommended! Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. A good (but not great) game that has a lovely turn-based combat system which encourages strategic thinking as opposed to the itchy trigger finger free-for-all fest we've seen too often in so-called CRPG games of late. I would have happily given this game an 8 but I feel the following issues reduce the overall score by 1 point.

    - The recycling NPC dialogue. Dear lord, do I really have to listen to 2 townsfolk in the marketplace repeating the same couple of lines every few seconds while I consider what to do next? It really makes it hard to think sometimes. There is thankfully a mod available to fix this but some areas are still a problem.
    - Railroading. The game tends to force you to follow a certain route and visit areas in a specific order as enemies who are above the general level of the party will wipe the floor with you owing to the combat system favouring them exponentially for each level they are above you. This slows the gameplay down a lot as you dither and dally over trying to find areas where enemies are around the same level as you.
    - Instant death. I'm one of those CRPG gamers who likes to try and play through a game without getting my characters killed so I don't have to save-scum, as this feels like cheating. Unfortunately this game tends to occasionally throw enemies or traps at you that (a) can one-shot a typical party member or (b) are invulnerable to your attacks, with no advance warning. One example from my last game - my 15th level party gets into an underground tomb. There's a large semicircular room with what looks like an animated humanoid statue (an eternal guardian) at the far end, and when I hover the mouse pointer over him, the blurb tells me he's 16th level. I move my party forward (anticipating a battle against him which I figure I can win), and suddenly 4 gigantic eternal guardians appear and attack, 2 from each side of the room. I throw a summoned zombie at them as a meat shield, and when I see it getting one-shotted, I figure it's time to flee. Unfortunately the game doesn't let me flee, as it keeps telling me one of my characters is still in combat, despite my entire party standing near the exit stairs. I then manage to get my stealthed ranger to the far side of the room, up some other stairs, and then I teleport the rest of the party to her using a magical device. I figure then combat should end as I'll be out of sight of the guardians but voila - the whole party instantly dies as they teleport to her area, as apparently there was some deadly trap there which was triggered by one of the teleporting characters (which the ranger failed to spot earlier). GAME OVER. It's moments like this that make this game incredibly frustrating at times.
    - Other poor game design elements - dialogue options that keep showing up, despite them having been used in the past (eg. option "1. Who are you?" still showing up despite talking to a specific NPC for the nth time), characters repeating dialogue for events that have already happened (eg. finding a buried treasure chest and later coming across a book that mentions the treasure, then making a comment like "this treasure should be buried somewhere around here....."), characters repeating lines like "What a lucky find!" every time they pick up one of the magical teleporting pyramids they've just used for the 20th or 30th time.
    - Too many useless loot drops - I'm not into crafting in CRPGs so it gets really irritating when you constantly find things like rat's tails, arrowheads, sheep's wool, bomb fuses, wood chips, etc, etc. Also the other loot you find on slain enemies is usually inferior to what you can buy from merchants, so you find yourself constantly running back and forth in search of better gear like headless chickens between the various weapon, armour and magic merchants in the game as their stock changes each time you level up and after every hour of real time.
    - Environmental effects in combat - a bit overdone as often the central area of the battleground becomes a veritable morass of lightning/fire/poison, which can limit the usefulness of melee-orientated characters without ranged attacks/teleporting ability, as they get stuck waiting for the elemental effects to clear so that they can close with any remaining enemies.

    I've backed Divinity Original Sin 2 via Kickstarter so hopefully Larian Studios will make it a bit more polished than the first one.

    This game has a great turn based combat system, the graphics looks great for an isometric game and the story (that I've seen so far) isThis game has a great turn based combat system, the graphics looks great for an isometric game and the story (that I've seen so far) is interesting. But there are two detrimental flaws that prevented me from finishing it. This game's enemies do not respawn, that means you have a finite amount of money and exp. If you did the wrong build, you're done, you have to start over. I dumped nearly 40 hours into the game, and I'm finally stuck and can not continue, the only option is to start over. The second thing is the inventory management aspect, if you're playing with a controller, inventory management is really bad. The good news Is that there's a respawning enemy mod for this game, so if anyone is reading this review, install this mod before you play, because it requires you to start a new save for the mod to work.
