Unfortunately, I did let it pass me by. I'm sure it's truly a great game and I certainly would've tried it -- back in the day. Nowadays, nah. I'd have to have nothing recent to play, to play an old game I never have. As it is, I can only find myself sometimes replaying old games, that already have a grip on me, but strange ones never can entice me enough if there's recent games I wanna play. Just one among many I missed, others including Planescape: Torment and Neverwinter Nights. I'd probably feel the same if I had missed out on Fallout, Diablo or Warcraft; I'm glad I didn't.
Greg Kasavin... whatever happened to him? Never does reviews anymore. VanOrd aside, he's not particularly any worse than any other GSpot reviewer.
@Humorguy_basic: For I've been able to find out by asking this issue in the GOG forums: Larian Studios accidentally lost the code that made the 1.5 patch for the GOG release, now one of the guys at the studio is trying to redo the patch from scratch and fix whatever other extra issues the game has. There is a article about it here: http://www.gamebanshee.com/news/102668-larian-studios-status-update-continued.html The public patch may turn out after all, but it is going to take some time.
:@SciFiCat, I meant the 1.5 not the 1.05. That was a typing error. The only way to get the latest patch is to pay $5 for the GOG version that has been patched up, but with no public release of said patch.
@Humorguy_basic: Or you can download the 1.34 patch available right here in GameSpot in the Downloads sections of this page.
If you supported this small developer, like I did, by buying the game when it came out, at full price, you will b upset, like me, that the only way to get the latest 1.05 patch is too buy another copy from GOG or Impulse, etc for over $5!!! How long before the big publishers start copying this and we're paying for patches from every publisher!
Sounds really good, gonna buy probably. Dragon Age: Origins clearly stole many features from this game, most notably the music.
It's interesting Greg says Divine is as good as Morrowind and Neverwinter Nights, but unlike those American titles, that all got over 9.0, generally speaking, this European title got scores in the 80's from most gaming sites. We shouldn't be surprised, because after all, the STALKER series, the Gothic series, the Spellforce series, the Sacred series and the Divinity series, all European cRPG's, never score above 8.9 either! Sounds like pro American or anti European game bias, if you ask me!
Greg Kasavin reviews this epic role-playing game. Err, Greg Kasavin drones on and makes me wonder if he still holds his v-card.
this is the type of game i like, didn't know it was so good when it came out. bought at best buy for 10 bucks. nice...
7 years after it was released, its still one of the best action/RPG games out there! Also, at 8:21, whoever was playing hit the windows key instead of the Alt key, which happens alot if you play for too long.
