    Last year, Divinity: Original Sin was one of my favourite video games when it released. The new Enhanced Edition reminds me why, but it it not content to simply sit back on prior success. Meaningful changes were made in thousands of large and subtle ways, and the result is one of the best RPG experiences that can be found on either PC or console.

    Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition is a fantastic example of developers going out of their way to ensure that a PC game is specifically tailored to work on consoles. It's also a great way to introduce console players to a challenging style of game they might not normally play.

    Difficulties with the interface aside, Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition is an intriguing, challenging, relentlessly charming game that serves as a refreshing break from bleaker RPGs that have dominated the rest of the year. It absolutely shouldn't be overlooked by RPG fans who never played it on PC. For those who have played the original, enough has changed in the story and progression that the remastered edition is well worth a second purchase to play locally with friends.

    Divinity: Original Sin still is a great RPG. We enjoyed the new features such as spoken texts and small tweaks in gameplay. The only thing that was tricky was to control the game with the controller instead of the keyboard and mouse. And that split-screen co-op is still as amazing as it used to be.

    Divinity is packed with enough content to keep you going well above the seventy hour mark, and enough choices and outcomes in every situation to make you want to start a new game the minute the credits begin rolling.

    Divinity: Original Sin knows when to be whimsical, and when to take its strategic gameplay seriously. The trade-offs can be heavy. The penalties are stiff. The payoffs feel great. Old school role-playing game fans: There’s a lot here for you to take in. It’ll often fascinate and it’ll occasionally frustrate. Getting into Original Sin’s groove is a great niche to find yourself in. This Enhanced Edition on PS4 is indeed better in many, many ways.

    Divinity: Original Sin never ceases to impress. Be it the deep role-play mechanics, the marvelous quest structure, the beautiful soundtrack or the gorgeous visuals, the Enhanced Edition feels like the complete package. With inclusion of voice acting and the possibility of split-screen gaming with a friend, the title is a must-have for console RPG enthusiasts.

    Enhanced Edition should become the model case for a competition. Except for a few things it levels up almost every game element; it offers the players countless hours of high-quality voice-acting; it’s nicer and controls are flawless on consoles. In addition, now features a local multiplayer. If they get rid of a few past issues, the game would deserve a full [100].

    On console Original Sin is still amazing. New buttons, new content; they are both great. The PC version is still our favorite, as there are less steps needed for the same action. But it does not matter if you have played Original Sin before or you are a new player, it is still a must have thanks to its local co-op and excellent voice acting.

    Divinity: Original Sin is a massively complex PC title skilfully repurposed for console gamepads. It's deep, compelling, and fun, but not for the casual crowd.

    The game, if you play it alone, is very interesting and with old school, deep gameplay mechanics. However, if you're looking for a multiplayer rpg, Diablo is still a better option.

    An in-depth and thoughtful RPG that offers console gamers an experience normally reserved for PC gamers. It’s pace and mechanics may take some getting used to and there are a few mild technical issues, but for those willing to put the time and effort in there are countless hours of questing and combat here that should enthral any RPG fan.

    An old-fashioned RPG with overly complicated menus. But after just a little bit of playtime it shows unexpected qualities.
