Inventory bug ruins the game.

M. Montplaisir, Amazon

  • Summary: The inventory bug is unresolved, especially for Windows 7. Makes the game unplayable past the 2nd level. Game is enjoyable except can't use inventory system. Weak programming. Tried all the tips and fixes from the internet sites for BD - no help. Good luck with this one - if you dare.

Beyond mediocrity.

  • Conclusion: Remember Ultima VII, Diablo, and Baldur’s Gate? Beyond Divinity does too—but it’s not nearly as good as any of those classics. It may hit your sweet spot if you are an RPG veteran, but proceed with caution. Download and play the whole demo before buying.
  • Pros: Say this for the developers of Beyond Divinity (BD): They sure haven’t forgotten the classics. BD is a veritable trip down memory lane for anybody who played RPGs between 1990 and 2000. There are many elements here from a number of notable titles in the genre.
  • Cons: The graphics in Beyond Divinity are a mixed bag at best. The 2D backgrounds are fairly good, but the 3D character models are rough and look very out of place here. Character movement is especially jarring, producing a weird kind of “ice skating” effect that is very unnatural-looking.

  • Summary: The game runs and plays fine, but, as reviewed by so many, I just lost interest in it. Talk to guy, open chest, find key, open door, talk to guy, etc. Boring.

Beyond Boring

John L. Maillard "Digital Enthusiast", Amazon
4 May 2005
  • Summary: It's rare that you'll find a bad review of a game here at Amazon from me, but I have to speak up about the woeful Beyond Divinity. A sequel to the much-heralded Divine Divinity, BD is an amateurish romp through a bunch of static landscapes that holds no value, unless you like getting annoyed.

could've been better

  • Summary: This game's interface was really annoying. I hated having to keep both party members alive at all times. The voice acting could've been better. Reminded me too much of Diablo. The graphics were mediocre at best. You can't adjust the difficulty once you've started the game, and this game is HARD!
