    Definitely not for everyone

    The bottom line is that Divinity Original Sin 2 is heaven-on-earth for D&D fans and/or gamers that love experiences that involves zero hand-holding and an extremely 'shades of grey' narrative and world. If that's you... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Divinity: Original Sin II

  • Rating:4

    It seems like it could've been a fun game, but not for me.

    Don't get me wrong, the fighting in this game was addictive (and fun to a certain point), especially with multiple party members as it tends to become chaotic and adds to the excitement. But after battling NPCs over and ... Read Full Review

    frustrating

    The game is somewhat good but repetitive and frustrating.Why there is no pause is beyond me. Trying to click on a walking person and accidentally stealing something because they move is just dumb programming. Wanting to ... Read Full Review

    One of the best examples of the old skool RPG genre

    If you played Divinity: Original Sin 1, and enjoyed it, well this more of the same but better, so I don't know why you're reading this. Buy it now.If you haven't, then the decision might be a little more nuanced - but be... Read Full Review

    Purchased on the back of the 10/10 review

    Simply put, this is an excellent game but don't buy it on the back of the review on Gamespot. It's not a 10/10 game - it has many flaws that reduced my overall score.First, the story. It's just not that good. It needs co... Read Full Review

    Retro game for nostalgia lovers only

    Divinity Original Sin 2 is a top down RPG in a similar vein to Diablo etc but in 2017 the graphics are pretty poor, and game play is generic for this type of game. To make matters worse, combat is turn based. To be hon... Read Full Review

    Full Version now available - and worth every penny!

    If you've ever played tabletop D&D this is a must-have! With new characters, quests, voice acting, etc. this outdoes the earlier Divinity. The action is "deliberate" as you control four characters in turn-by-turn ... Read Full Review
