    The Game That I've Been Waiting for Ever Since Baldur's Gate

    Those who enjoyed this probably haven't played anything better

    This game has absolutely nothing in common with Diablo or Baldur's Gate. It would like to but it does not. Period. The End. I hear people say this continually but let's get real here. This is a kickstarter game, this ga... Read Full Review

    Fancy Isn't Always Fun

    It's not that Divinity: Original Sin is a "bad" game because it's not. What puts me off about it is that it pales in comparison to it's predecessors, which ironically this is the prequel to. Divine Divinity was one of my... Read Full Review

    Very tedious in general, not enjoyable.

    I went back and forth on whether or not I wanted to spend the time writing a review for this game and eventually decided it might help someone else that will regret spending money on it. I'll preface by saying I was a ba... Read Full Review
