Although it's not quite perfect, Divinity 2 is a superb RPG that stands comfortably alongside its sister, Divinity: Original Sin
as a hugely entertaining adventure. If you're a fantasy fan who loves the likes of Diablo
and Elder Scrolls
, then this is a great game to pick up and yo're guaranteed hours of questing fun. The game takes place in a well crafted, if not overly original, fantasy world, where dragons have been persecuted for centuries but who are about to take their revenge, with your help of course, and you do actually get to feel what it's like to fly the skies and burn your enemies with your fiery breath. There are many of the familiar genre elements, with side quests to pick up, a massive world to explore, combat to engage in, items to collect and so on and so on. The game is very open ended and doesn't hold your hand, so it's possible you'll find yourself in situations you're ill equipped to deal with, but that's part of its charm and makes the experience that much more believable. This also means you'll need to help yourself when taking on quests, and you'll want to take notes as you go, which makes this feel quite old-school in its approach. The combat here is fun, if a little hack 'n' slash, but there's enough depth and variety in most other aspects to make up for this. The visuals aren't quite AAA standard but they're definitely well done, with some nice environment and character work to enjoy. All in all, this is a pretty epic adventure that is well worth losing yourself in.
