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.

    Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition is more than just a port. Within, Larian has rewritten and reworked massive pieces to address players concerns and make it the best version yet of an already excellent turn-based RPG.

    Divinity Original Sin 2 has everything necessary to become a modern classic. It's one of the greatest exponents of the traditional RPG games that we can find today on the market. If we allow ourselves to be seduced by its history, its rich conversational system and its complex combat, we will be captivated by a title that offers endless hours of play to discover all the secrets of a magical medieval fantasy world.

    Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition is the best version of the best RPG of 2017. If you like these games and have a console you’d be a fool not to play it.

    Larian Studios masterfully rescues the spirit of the RPG giants of yesteryear. A deep game strongly marked by an exciting main plot, which also offers unprecedented freedom in decisions, dialogues and character development. The best that has been created in the RPG genre in recent years.

    Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition is a truly superb RPG experience that delivers a complex but intriguing narrative, some of the most exciting and intelligent turn-based combat I’ve ever encountered, and a shed load of quests to ensure there’s always something to do.

    A compelling story with a huge amount of player freedom, but overwhelming at points. [Nov 2018, p.93]

If you are a fan of RPG's, a fan of a brilliant story, a fan of getting a mental workout, or just a fan of video games....you owe it to yourself and these developers to play this game. I am a completionist when it comes to these types of games and have enjoyed over 130 hours of gameplay without tire or feel of repetition.....and still more game to enjoy. If you take my word for it and get this game based on my review....you are welcome. Expand

    Le tout premier "Original Sin", j'avais déjà trouvé ça extrêmement suspect pour ne pas dire carrément nul à chier... sous bien des aspects...Le tout premier "Original Sin", j'avais déjà trouvé ça extrêmement suspect pour ne pas dire carrément nul à chier... sous bien des aspects... pour ne pas dire tous les aspects à dire vrai.

    Pour ce numéro 2 en "edition définitive", j'ai comme eu l'impression que c'était devenu (enfin) un jeu -à défaut de vrai jeu de rôle bien entendu...- un jeu à peu près normal... Or après plusieurs heures, il n'en est rien hélas !

    Donc déjà en matière de "rôle"', c'est aussi limité que très dirigiste... et un peu trop souvent bourrin, car ça finit inévitablement en grosses bastons un peu cons, quoi qu'on fasse ou qu'on dise... Ensuite, le combat au tour par tour est victime d'une interface généralement mal faite, laquelle est aussi mal faite en ce qui concerne l'inventaire (séparé pour chaque personnage !) le suivi des quêtes, la carte... presque tout en fait.

    L'accent est mis ici -comme dans leur première daube- sur le sol qu'on peut brûler, exploser, empoisonner, électrifier, etc, etc mais là encore, c'est très mal foutu et fort mal aisé à exploiter avec de surcroît une confusion graphique, un bordel inextricable à l'écran lorsque tous ces "effets" sont appliqués... à se demander s'ils ont au moins une fois joué à leur "jeu" pour oser proposer un foutoir pareil !

    Mais de toute façon, on se rend vite compte que la difficulté est rapidement hallucinée avec des ennemis bien au dessus de nos persos, bourrés de points de vie, de sorts à n'en plus pouvoir et souvent nombreux avec ça ! c'est putain de n'importe quoi et comme d'habitude, Larian ne sait toujours pas équilibrer ses jeux correctement...

    Graphiquement néanmoins, c'est pas trop vilain malgré cette vue aérienne forcément restrictive et peu immersive mais on regrette l'absence de voix françaises, des temps de chargement trop longs et une musique d'ascenseur envahissante (comment, elle n'était pas destinée aux ascenseurs ? au temps pour moi !).

    Enfin, le monde lui-même d'Original Sin n'est pas motivant et encore moins intéressant... sa pauvreté d'écriture n'est que le reflet d'un developpeur décidément incapable et incompétent.
