Summary: [note: I only played original game and the expansion but I did not use the developer's cut bonus material] Divinity is a single player sandbox (ish) RPG by Larian Studios. The game features a classless leveling system where points are freely spent in any of 5 trees. Hitting shelves in early 2010, the game's graphics are still solid 4 years later.
Summary: This ends up being a fairly good game. It sticks to game mechanics that are simple but work, the graphics are quite ok and the story line is decent. It's not exactly Skyrim or The Witcher but if you're looking for a 3rd person fantasy game, you'll likely enjoy this. The drop system is that of Diablo which is frustrating as it's very random indeed but the skill system is good. The dragon combat is perhaps a bit too arcade-like but I had a bit of fun with it.
Summary: Basically you can think of this as a bioware style game but lacking a little polish and a fair bit harder. One of the things it misses is quest markers... Now you can consider this either a positive or a negative. For some people it'll be a dealbreaker but personally I liked the old school feel of it. Is it as good as Dragon Age? No, but that doesn't mean it isn't good.
Summary: This was one of the games i have played from the humble bundle. I played this game for about an hour and it was a pile of crap. I know focus games are quite bad but in my opinion even game of thrones (game) is much better than this. The textures are quite nice i suppose but the game had a really strange feeling and was not enjoyable for me. In all i would not recommend even thinking about playing this game but that's just me.
Summary: I hadn't heard of Larian Studios or this game until the Humble Bundle feature, but boy am I glad I picked it up. While it's true that this is no Skyrim, it is indeed a very fine RPG I'd rate it as better than the Risen and Gothic series. The voice acting is adequate and the graphics are quite decent, but the quest and map management and story are amazing.
Summary: Divinity II: developers cut for the pc. Writing a review of a game is hard because a game is as much a matter of taste as anything else. Even within a specific genre, like roleplay games, tastes differ and what someone finds a great game, others find awful. I also often find that a review also seems to be a one way communication device and a judgement based on one person’s opinion. And everyone knows an opinion is just an opinion.
