Nov 1, 2015The best homage that the old school RPG can get, but also a rendition to the new wave on the genre, adapted seamlessly to consoles.
Oct 29, 2015There's little we can complain about. Divinity Original Sin still is an outstanding and unique experience, no matter what platform you play it on.
Oct 26, 2015You can find RPGs that are prettier, more accessible, or less busy, but very few are as dedicated to the true spirit of role-playing as this one is.
Nov 1, 2015Whether it be the finer details that the game gets so right, the brilliantly written script, the deep, addictive battle system or the simple fact that, Larian Studios have somehow managed to make it all work on a home console, the fact of the matter is; Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition, regardless of where you decide to play it, has to go down as one of the single finest Western RPGs released in the last five years.
Nov 5, 2015There isn’t much wrong with Original Sin outside of the fact that there simply may be too much of it. In a time when games are releasing on a weekly basis, this is a daunting experience that requires the utmost dedication. Still, for anyone who loves the turn-based genre, it doesn’t get much better than this.
Official Xbox Magazine UKDec 8, 2015A surprise gem, particularly in co-op. Be prepared to put in a bit of learning time, but it's well worth it so you can appreciate the unusual freedom at your fingertips. Also: you can talk to dogs. [Christmas 2015, p.69]
LEVEL (Czech Republic)Dec 3, 2015Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition has come a really long way, from the solid and praised RPG to a totally redesigned project that brought a hardcore version of the genre to the new consoles. What a creditable achievement. [Issue#258]

You can bu sure that if you like RPGs, this game MUST be played. Pay attention: it is not a game where you will find the best graphic effects, or the best "framerate". Here you will simply find one of the best RPG existing. I suggest to play it with no informations about the game, so to discover it gradually… Expand

It starts at the free choice of character (two persons) where you can decide freely about sex - super! The turn-based battles are also a fine break from the modern gameplays. The story is very interesting and well written dialogues. Unfortunately, there is no German Synchro of the spoken dialogue. The texts have been translated into German.
The inventory could be better resolved, but that would be my only criticism already. Nice that even those turn-based RPGs find their way to the consoles (Xbox One).… Expand

After 44 hours, a buddy and I finished the game on medium difficulty. As a quick conclusion, we were both enthusiastic about Divinity.
We played through the game on the Xbox One and were both amazed at the very simple and easy controls. With the controller everything went very smoothly - great implementation.
It's been a long time since we played a turn-based RPG. At first I was personally skeptical that I could get used to this type of gameplay again. But you could put your concerns aside immediately because the gameplay is extremely fun (rock, scissors, paper in dialogues, just wonderful). An unbelievable density of puzzles, secret paths and very lucrative hiding places make the world in itself very exciting and challenging. The fights are sometimes very hard and the AI is also clever (this must be a real challenge with a lot of tactics on the higher levels of difficulty). As is typical for role-playing games, we created our characters at the beginning, whereby the character editor does not tear up trees. We played with a group of 1x tank, 2 magicians and an archer. My colleague chose a magician and I chose the shooter, everything went very well, there was enough damage, even if one or the other meteorite hit more than just the enemy: D. Very rarely there were smaller FPS dropouts in the rounds, e.g. when a whole horde of opponents was shot at with a hail of arrows, hailstorms or the like. Which brings me straight to performance and graphics.
Performance / graphics
Graphics were really adorable in some places and I really liked it overall, especially the capabilities were very nice to look at. Since the performance is much more important, I am glad that, apart from the above example, there were no problems and the whole thing was playable smoothly.
Without spoiling the story, it can be said that we found it extremely successful and were happy to accompany the source hunters. With some surprising parts and very cool boss fights (especially the last fight), the game offered a decent fantasy story.
In brief, a few more negative points:
- Crafting system (very confusing)
- Fast forward laps (is there an option?)
- Quest log subdivision (also very confusing)
All in all, an outstanding role-playing game. I can recommend anyone who hasn't already, e.g. Due to the turn-based fighting, we strongly recommend giving the game a chance and enjoying a strong RPG, preferably in CO-OP, beyond the beginning.

On the whole this is a pretty good game that will appeal to a niche market (jRPG fans should take note as this is a step up), but will unlikely find a wider audience given its mechanics and lack of polish.
Turn-based combat that depends on every stat of the character, which is controllable/ determined by you...from who attacks first, who attacks most, through damage, defense, etc. Very satisfying...but takes a while to get back into coming off of the action style games of today.
Character customization for the above reasons; allows vastly different approaches to the game.
Crafting is strong; again, only if you are into the time it takes to appreciate it. This is another niche appreciation.
Story is ok and although the physical footprint is not large, the combination of the above and the planing involved with approaching combat, so as not to be 1-shotted, the game takes 40+ hours to complete (maybe on easy mode it would take less, not sure).
While I don't play co-op, that you can fully lay the game co-op is a fantastic feature.
This game was clearly made on a PC budget, from visuals to voice acting this is very obviously not a AAA product (again, much like a jRPG)
Combat, at times, can be very unfair. It is far too easy to be 1-shot killed (not just "you", your whole party!!!!!) and, in a game with a true ironman mode, that is unconscionable.
Rock-paper-scissors is a ridiculous concept to resolving disputes...and I mean ridiculous.
Like too many games over the past few years, the games become more complex, but the tutorials do not, so your early enjoyment of the game is much less than it should be...and you lose a lot of people that are borderline RPG fans.
Camera angles (top down)/ screen colors are not great and it is fairly easy not to be able to see enemies during combat as they blend into the environment (not purposely)
Enemies/ creatures do not re-spawn, so there are only a set amount of xp in this game...once you are "done" a section, it is barren (except for the corpses) for the rest of the game...huge disappointment.… Expand

Il s'avère en effet très bas de plafond pour un jeu de rôle qui n'a pas grand-chose de "rôle" à dire vrai, à part surtout les défauts outrancièrement exagérés ici... un jeu très bêta et très bête donc dont l'humour crétin omniprésent est vraiment pénible à supporter.
Son monde générique est très ballot et n'appelle jamais qu'une attention polie alors que son espèce d'histoire à la godille suscite quelques baillements plus ou moins discrets... Son combat au tour par tour semble alléchant mais se révèle à l'usage bancal et décidément trop foireux. Le "leitmotiv" qui tourne à l'obsession en ce qui concerne les surfaces à "piéger" est en effet une mécanique qui ne tourne pas rond, en plus d'être très con et bâclée.
L'interface sur la console est plutôt ratée et peu commode à utiliser, le dirigisme est roi ici, les choix sont quasi-inexistants et les ennemis vite trop balèzes, histoire de se donner une allure de jeu élitiste à la mords-moi-le-noeud. Graphiquement, ça reste bof et plutôt niais et enfin globalement cette "enhanced edition" demeure aussi merdique que l'originale !… Expand
