    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.

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!!!

    This is one of the most enjoyable games I have played in a long time.

I must say, the game starts slowly, but boy, does it get fun after that. I see this as a merge between Xcom and Diablo. 2 of my favorite games combined into one. Fun writing, good graphics and fantastic mechanics. Highly recommended! Expand

Unlike most RPGs, it’s designed with co-op in mind -you evenDivinity was a Kickstarter success story that still somehow took us by surprise. Unlike most RPGs, it’s designed with co-op in mind -you even control two protagonists in the single-player version, roleplaying different motivations through conversations. Larian designed encounters thinking that someone could always disagree, or ruin things for you, or even kill the NPC you need to talk to, meaning that quests have to be solvable in unorthodox ways.

    The writing in Divinity is consistently top-notch. Sure, sometimes you’ll have to destroy a goblin riding a giant mechanical robot, or talk to a dog to solve a quest. But that dog may have a heartbreaking story for you, and maybe you’ll cry just a little. Larian commits to Divinity’s world, and that commitment pays off. This is the kind of freeform, epic, party-based RPG we haven’t had since the days of Ultima, and it’s exactly what true gamers love from an RPG.

The biggest issue is the lack of direction, your objectives are usually quite vague, which is fine for side quests, but you'll often just be wandering around trying to figure out how to advance the main quest. The developers tried to do too much, and so there are a plethora of quests, an abundance of crafting odds and ends, and a wide array of books, arrows, grenades, etc, to the point that just keeping things straight becomes a chore. You'll often default to one character to lead, which means they're picking all the things up, which is good for crafting but bad for questing. You'll end up with one character carrying 50 identical looking books and you're just mousing over them one by one looking for the one relevant to the puzzle you're on. The enemies' resistances are very inconsistent, which is a pain, since Skeleton X will take bonus damage from fire but Skeleton Y will not. R+clicking and examining every enemy really slows the game down. Expand

The turn based combat suits me well, although theDivinity: Original Sin is a true RPG for old school gamers with somewhat unfortunate title. The turn based combat suits me well, although the combination of reliance on RNG and unlimited combat/dialogue saves does not make much sense to me. In the first half, this game can be pretty challenging even on normal difficulty, but as with almost every RPG, there is a gradual decrease in difficulty as you play along. In a game with a lot of reading, the font matters to me quite a lot and it is not that pleasant in this game. Otherwise the graphics look nice and atmospheric. Every single dialogue is voice acted, which is very nice. The ambiance NPC banter (vendors, imps) can get very annoying though. The music is very immersive. I was not really impressed by the story, in my opinion it is overly complicated at times and because the game is non-linear, certain quests and aspects of the story can appear as if out of context. Plus the companions kinda suck, both story-wise and because of the pre-selected attributes and abilities. No microtransactions and no SJW politics, which is a plus.

    Overall a very decent RPG with some minor flaws here and there. Final verdict: 73 % ( which I do not consider to be mixed).

    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.
