Divinity II: Ego Draconis Review
7 October 2010
Conclusion: Divinity II: Ego Draconis has more than a few flaws. It doesn't look great, it doesn't sound great, it lacks a certain amount of polish, and its combat engine is iffy -- but, with all that being said, I generally enjoyed the campaign.
Excerpt: Dragon Slayers, Dragons, and Dragon Knights are all key players in the battle for the world, with Damian as the vengeful antagonist. Divinity II: Ego Draconis ‘s storyline follows a newly trained Dragon Slayer, though the process isn’t entirely complete and interrupted with the appearance of a...
Excerpt: If you checked out the demo for Divinity II: Ego Draconis on Xbox Live, like me, and then played this game when it was released, then I feel your pain. Divinity II: Ego Draconis is the sequel to the 2002 Divine Divinity, but the world is pretty much the only thing that links the two games.
Conclusion: So, my biggest downfall with the game was the ending, and that's why it only gets a 4, though the ending itself probably deserves a score in the negatives. So, in closing, if taken at face value, the game is worth a playthrough, but not something I'd ever give away as a christmas present....
Review: Divinity II: Ego Draconis (Microsoft Xbox 360)
24 February 2010
Excerpt: In my opinion, 2009 was a great year opinion for RPGs with games like Borderlands and Dragon Age still consuming a lot of my time now into the new year. Recently Divinity II: Ego Draconis (Latin for “I, of the Dragon”Â�) became available as a demo on XBox LIVE so I decided to give it a whirl as two...
Conclusion: Divinity II, whilst not being a direct contender to Dragon Age, is nevertheless going to be in the shadow of that game's PR machine. It's a very good title, and highly addictive in certain areas.
Conclusion: The PC version was very enjoyable to play for me, I liked it, but the ending wasn’t the greatest, getting there though was fun and enjoyable. The Xbox360 version is just riddled with glitches and flaws, and just not as enjoyable overall as the PC version honestly.
Pros: Vast world, Play as dragon, Lots of side quests
Cons: Get stuck in spots, Interface is much better on PC, Low frame rates at times, Frame tearing, Controls don’t work correct all of the time, No real replay value
Excerpt: Poor Divinity 2 . Any traditional fantasy RPG (even an action RPG) with a focus on dragons is bound to draw players' minds to BioWare's Dragon Age: Origins , a truly fantastic title to which almost any other would compare negatively.
Pros: you like Dragon Age: Origins, fantasy or RPGs.
Cons: you don't vibe with the genre - this won't be the game to pull you in.
Conclusion: The point of the matter is when you're creating a video game, you simply can't have everything. As a developer, I'd dump all of the flying segments in favor of a traditional and well-designed RPG action experience, rather than having a crack at two or more genres at once and winding up with a...
Pros: If you're looking for an average RPG packed with a solid number of quests and random content (and your very own Battle Tower), then look no further, there's quite a few flying sections in this one as well (if you're looking for that sort of thing in an RPG), also I like the quest reward system;
Cons: Filled with bugs, clunky combat mechanics, beyond the random RPG content (standard quests, upgrading, leveling, etc.) there's nothing remotely interesting about this game, there are better RPGs out there.
Summary: " Divinity 2: Ego Draconis " kind of came out of nowhere, but is surprisingly good to be honest, especially considering the limited budget and release the game has got. There’s some definite real problems- the animation is more 1999 than 2009, and the frame-rate can get choppy, and even on easy the...
