Divinity II The Dragon Knight Saga
1 May 2011
Excerpt: Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga for Xbox 360 is jammed packed with sword and sorcery adventure. With tweaks to the game and a remastering of Ego Draconis and the conclusion to the pulse-pounding saga Flames of Vengeance, player can enjoy the awesomeness that is the Dragon Knight Saga. Chock full of all the previous Downloadable content, plus the sound track CD, and a super-cool concept art book from the game.
Violent, gory fantasy RPG with sexy innuendo, swearing.

Summary: Parents need to know that Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga is a role-playing adventure that takes place in a fantasy kingdom that is embroiled in chaos. The game is heavily combat-driven and contains a lot of dismembered bodies, graphic gore, and blood. It also has some sexy costuming and language that contains sexual innuendo and mild cussing.
Conclusion: Overall, my reaction to Flames of Vengeance was about the same as my reaction to Ego Draconis . I thought the quests were fun, and I enjoyed hunting around for hidden buttons and secret rooms, but the combat was sort of a drag, and the fights (even the end boss fight) provided no challenge whatsoever.
Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga Xbox 360 Review
3 December 2010
Excerpt: I have a confession to make: I don’t play RPG’s that often, although when I do get around to playing one I can quite easily get lost in its world. I didn’t get around to playing the original release of Divinity II either, despite it being a part of my collection, but with the release of this newly re-mastered version, I tasked myself with taking on the job of reviewing it and managed to lose myself in the world of Rivellon.
Excerpt: I actually enjoyed the last Divinity game on the XBox 360, Divinity II: Ego Draconis and even though it wasn't the latest Elder Scrolls or next big blockbuster RPG title, it was just a good old fashioned role-playing fun that pays homage to the original Dungeons & Dragons game.
Conclusion: There’s nothing here that’s completely groundbreaking, but it’s an addictive adventure that keeps on throwing up new spins on the old hack, slash and magic concept. The brilliant and funny script will keep you hooked through the 40+ hours of gameplay that lurks in both Ego Draconis and its sequel Flames Of Vengeance. There are tonnes of dungeons to explore, stacks of skills to level up and many minds to read.
Conclusion: Cast your mind back to last winter … can you recall an RPG released back then that wasn’t Dragon Age or Mass Effect 2 ? Me either. It’s little wonder Divinity II: Ego Draconis was overlooked, falling as it did under the mighty shadows of Bioware’s behemoths. Re-released this month with an all-new adventure, can Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga finally capture the hearts and minds of RPG fans?
