In Divinity: Original Sin, you were on a quest for the forbidden Source magic. Now, you yourself are a Sourcerer: a dangerously powerful individual whose abilities summon creatures from the encroaching Void. The Divine is dead and the Void is everywhere. Sourcerers are blamed and the Divine Order is leading the charge against the threat: you. Captured and sent to Fort Joy, you will be "cured" of your powers -- no matter the cost. But the Order has secrets of its own that may cast doubt on its so-called holy mission. As you escape from Fort Joy, you realize that if the world remains godless, it will be consumed by the Void.

    From lonely farmhouses through pitched battles with gods in far-flung dimensions, Divinity: Original Sin II is one of the most captivating role-playing games ever made in both its original and Definitive incarnations, with the latter proving that even the most complicated role-players can be ported successfully to gamepad-limited consoles. This immaculately conceived and emotion-wrought fantasy world, topped by brilliant tactical combat, make it one of the finest games of recent years, and it remains an instant classic in the pantheon of RPG greats.

    I named the vanilla release the best game I had played this millennium in 2017, and the Definitive Edition on PS4 the best RPG I had ever played in 2018. 2019 sees Larian’s RPG opus become portable and it is as fantastic as ever. It is easily the deepest, richest, and most rewarding game on the Switch. In short Divinity Original Sin 2 – Definitive Edition the best game on Nintendo Switch.

    Divinity: Original Sin II is a masterpiece and a dream come true for RPG fans. This game takes us to a world in which our decisions will influence completely throughout the secondary plots, without forgetting to maintain excellent quality both in storytelling and in combat and personalization. One of the best role-playing games ever created.

    Divinity Original Sin 2 was one of the best RPG released in recent years. This Definitive Edition doesn’t change that fact. Loaded with content, it also features a good controler’s compatibility, allowing all consoles players to enjoy this gem.

    Blitworks has done a fantastic job porting Divinity: Original Sin 2 to Switch, running great for the most part,including local wireless and an interface that has been scaled well.

    Divinity: Original Sin II is the perfect definition of freedom in the role-playing genre. What Larian Studios has achieved here exceeds all expectations. It’s inspired by the classics, but it wants to innovate. It picks up elements from the original, but improves on them and expands them. Few RPGs can carry their acronym more proudly than the game we have here.

    Divinity: Original Sin II on the Switch does a wonderful job of staying true to the original PC and console versions with no major drawbacks — even if the menus can be their own mini-boss.

    I love RPG, so I do not consider myself objective.

    DOS2 is a cool, multi-faceted, long-running game with an incredible story that I went through several times over the past couple of months, but I'm sure I missed something.

    Races, classes, characters as individuals, interesting quests, unusual non-game characters - all this is mixed here in some magic potion that will enchant the player.

    Yes, of course, the graphics here are not perfect, but this does not interfere with playing and enjoying the game 100%.

    Written after 165 hours of playing the Nintendo switch.

    This is probably the best rpg on the Switch. 100+ hours of content if you want it and you can play online with friends. I don’t have a gamingThis is probably the best rpg on the Switch. 100+ hours of content if you want it and you can play online with friends. I don’t have a gaming pc but if you have this on Steam you can transfer saves back and forth which makes this a pc gamers best friend to continue playing on the go or on a big screen. I just wish they had local multiplayer in the main campaign and also GM mode (would be perfect for local wireless with Switch). Expand

    Im not going to talk about the game itself, because it’s pretty much recognized as an amazing game. So I’ll talk briefly talk about the switchIm not going to talk about the game itself, because it’s pretty much recognized as an amazing game. So I’ll talk briefly talk about the switch port. I’m only a few hours in, but so far performance is very smooth. The graphics are a tiny bit blurry, but that doesn’t affect its playability so far in any way, and that’s to be expected for a switch port of this magnitude. I will update as I get further into the game, and unless there is a drastic change in performance, I’ll leave the current score. So far it’s a great port! Expand

    I actually feel sorry for people who pay full price for these ports on Switch when they perform so badly....Witcher 3, Original Sin 2,I actually feel sorry for people who pay full price for these ports on Switch when they perform so badly....Witcher 3, Original Sin 2, Wolfenstein, etc. These games all run like trash and look terrible on Switch. Stay away from this and get it on PC, Xbox One X or PS4 Pro. Nintendo really needs a "pro" version of the Switch to even remotely try to compete in quality with better systems. Expand
