Fantasy, Warfare And Politics Collide

Excerpt: I remember when I posted the original news story about Divinity: Divinity Dragon Commander. I read through the concept and it sounded interesting. Most strategy games allow little or no control over the common affairs within a country. This is doubly true for fantasy settings.
Conclusion: Divinity: Dragon Commander is a shotgun of a game. It blasts you with elements from half a dozen different genres and somehow manages to fuse them into a solid and engaging gameplay experience.
Excerpt: An Emperor slain by his own children, a realm devolving into chaos and civil war, imps breeding like rabbits - the only person who can save the fantastical steampunk land of Rivellon is the eponymous
Conclusion: Divinity: Dragon Commander is a great title in what seems to become a good year for strategy games. Every piece of the experience works as intended and the mix of grand strategy, tactical battles, card use and resource management creates a huge number of potential paths to success and almost...
Pros: + Mix of strategy and dragon combat, + Card use on the strategic map, + Role-playing elements
Cons: - A learning curve associated with all units and abilities

Cons: A few more highlevel unit types would have been nice, Politics system completely breaks immersion and detracted from my overall experience
Conclusion: Larian Studios has released a very, very good game with Divinity: Dragon Commander. Combining elements of various different genres, Divinity: Dragon Commander gives the player the total experience in trying to wrestle the remnants of an empire from your estranged siblings.
Summary: As with Divinity II: Ego Draconis , Divinity: Dragon Commander has many wonderful ideas that are too frequently unevenly executed. Larian, a small studio, continued to work on and improve Ego Draconis after its release, culminating in an enhanced re-release that addressed many of the original’s...
Conclusion: So, once again we have another Larian game that has all of the trademark personality and wit that makes their games so fun to play, and once again we do have a few more of the issues that their past games can be criticized for - namely, lack of depth in favor of a wide, if somewhat unusual feature...
