Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga
11 April 2013
Conclusion: All points within the game, in my opinion, are above average and for the limited price tag (I must state this again as I was surely expecting mediocre material) you can't beat spending over 100 hours of your time running through the land of Rivellon . Any small quips I might have (and I don't believe I have any worth mentioning that effect game play) are blotted out by the quality of everything else.
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.
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.
Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga Xbox 360 Review

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: The Dragon Knight Saga may be a little rough around the edges and seem like a poor man's Oblivion, but there's enough here to interest fans of Western RPGs and, although it can be totally frustrating at times, it's the sort of game that draws you back in to see just what that next cave around the corner might have in the form of enemies and loot.
Pros: massive 60+ hour adventure, reasonably enjoyable RPG elements, will tide you over a while until Skyrim
Cons: forgettable story and characters, solid frame-rate but graphics are 2006-ish, clunky menus
