Divinity II: Ego Draconis
This game is one of the most hard games i've played, you'd better be sure to pick the best skills, and allocate your attribute points right, or you'll end up stuck. The fighting in this game is pretty hard since enemies are usually higher ranked than you, and you cannot grind enemies, since when you kill them, they are dead for good. There are an okay amount of side quests that are important to do so you'll level up, but still hard to find some of the quest locations. I wouldn't tell you to buy the game, but I spent a lot of hours playing this game, and it was pretty fun. If you get this game, i suggest you buy a lot of potions, and have a summoning spell, the 1st one is a Ghost that fights and heals you, it'll also be a good distraction for enemies. And you can still be a warrior and cast spells, or any other mix of classes, pretty good customization. VERY HARD GAME!!
I'll keep this as simple as possible. The graphics overall are not great, nor do i believe they are ok, there bad in my opinion, but what makes up a good RPG? The gameplay the story line, the character movement and and the smoothness of the fighting. I for one don't like super good awesome graphics they get on my nerves in RPG's or MMORPG's. Other then what i hear on some copies being messed up, this game is great. As i always say you can't judge a game on 5 minutes of gameplay, you have to take time with it. To the point, i played this game for 9 hours i think, it takes time to become a dragon, but worth it. Story leading up to it makes sense and the character move smoothly and the fighting is good.
An Excellent game
Stunning graphics and game play, lots of quests and an interesting story. There are lots of characters to talk to. i highly recommend this game.
glitch festival and a half
when i first saw this game i thought '' wow this is gona be sweet!'' but when i started to play all heck broke loose. most of the game glitched alot in the begining when i reached the first town and eventually kept corrupting all my saves and so on and so forth. this... I REPEAT THIS IS NOT WORTH THE MONEY! not because its not good in story or graphics....nah...those are fine.....its the fact that you have to keep starting new game after new game and having to reset your xbox alot because of the freezing it does.......hopes this review helps my fellow gamers.
Couldn't play it
sorry, but an xbox game where i have 8 saves, and every last one of them is corrupted is stupid. For the little but I was allowed to play it was kinda fun if challenging since it is a game you should grind in but can't. Still, as I said I wasn't capable of finishing it since due to my 8 corrupted save files I had to replay the same parts over and over again. I don't even care if they patched it, that is just fundamentally wrong, shipping a game in that condition.
Annoying and Dull
Divinity 2 is a game I didn't focus on very much. Honestly, it was because it was so boring and uninteresting. I was very excited when I layed my hands on the game but as I began to play, I realized that it was a mistake. Divinity 2 isn't that bad, it has its moments of richness and good quality. The problem is that the story of the game is just too dull for my taste. It was hard for me to move on while being bored. There is no creativity in the customization. The characters are so uninteresting and dull, and the game fails to deliver in so many aspects. I had more fun turning Xbox 360 off then playing the game. It's no good experience and you would have a better time buying something else. The game is not worth the price. Try buying another game with the money. Or buy some dowloadable content for another game because this game is dull and annoying.
well i dont have this game but i would really recomend it... i want it well im getting it from when i saw it on youtube the graphics were amazing so im looking foward to getting it...i THINK it gets a 10/10
This game is great. I have not had any problems with this game except for it has frozen a few times but that happens with all games. While the game has a few flaws none of them really affect the game-play or the story. While the graphics may not be the best it does not really matter. Graphics are the least important part of a game. The story is great and entertaining and the idea of being able to turn into a dragon is also great.
Overall I say this game is worth a 9.
Fun, challenging, flawed.
I'll start this review by addressing the alleged glitchy-ness of Divinity II, as that was the make-or-break aspect of the game for me when I decided to buy it. This game has been criticized for having a TON of glitches ranging from save game corruptions to missing doors and levers. However, I'm assuming that a patch was released for this game soon after its release; I never experienced any truly game-crippling glitches. The worst thing that has happened to me was an instance where I wasn't able to un-pause my game. My Xbox didn't crash, the game was simply stuck on the pause screen. Thankfully I had saved my game not too far back, so this wasn't an issue. Other than this, I've had no issues with game-ending bugs. If you have an online connection and are able to download the patch (which will download automatically when you first boot up the game), you should be good to go.
Now, onto the game itself! I personally love the feel of combat in Divinity II - it's much like in Dragon Age, where you press an action button and then wait for your character to perform said action. In fact, I actually think that combat feels a bit better than in DA. It's surprisingly satisfying. You can choose one of three classes at the start of the game - warrior, archer, or mage - but after choosing an initial stat boost in one of these categories, you can mix and match classes as you see fit every time you level up. The leveling-up system feels a bit unbalanced because there are a TON of perks to choose from, and there's no way you can completely level up all of the ones you want by the time the game ends. It's a bit overwhelming, though it does feel like you're creating a totally custom character. If you like to get creative with character creation a la Morrowind, you should feel right at home with Divinity II.
The game CAN be very difficult at times, and this is largely due to the fact that enemies don't respawn. Once you kill an enemy, it's dead for good. If you want to level up a bit before facing a boss, you may find yourself scrounging around for enemies to kill. Also, unless you have a long-range combat playstyle, enemies can be VERY difficult to defeat if they're more than a level or two above you, but you can spam them with magic and bow attacks and they'll eventually go down. Be aware, however, that there is a boss early on in the game that is a pushover at close range, but that has a long-range magic attack that will demolish you in an instant. As an archer, I had to get creative with that boss, and coming up with a unique strategy and defeating him after several tries felt incredibly rewarding.
Divinity II's story is surprisingly good, if not very memorable, and the best character in the game is your own. You usually have several dialogue options in conversations, and some of them are absolutely hilarious (not hilariously bad; they're intentionally funny). It's a shame, then, that the world doesn't feel more vibrant. The game is open-world, but you can't seamlessly walk from one end of the world to the other; rather, the world is split up into several large sections, and while each area is unique and huge, it doesn't offer the same sense of scale as, say, Oblivion. The developers have still managed to cram some fairly epic scenarios into the game, though; the part of the game where you acquire your battle tower feels big enough to qualify as a suitable finale. Oh, and you can turn into a dragon, which is freaking awesome. You can't attack ground enemies while you're in dragon form, but this is actually a good design decision; if you could attack any enemy as a dragon, you'd destroy everything with little effort and the game wouldn't be nearly as challenging.
The game isn't without its flaws; the graphics are a bit too "shiny" for my taste (in other words, surfaces reflect more light than they should), and the game's engine struggles to keep up with the world (lighting effects in dungeons are actually really cool though). Though character animations are smooth, the framerate feels oddly sluggish at all times, though after playing for a few moments you'll hardly notice it. Add in the fact that the difficulty is uneven and at times very unfair and you have a game that's truly a love / hate affair. However, if you can look past the game's flaws, you'll find a deep, colorful RPG with a TON of content for only twenty bucks, with excellent (if repetitive) music to boot.
One of the worst games I've ever played
I got this game home and was rather excited. I played and barely got 1 & 1/2 hrs in before I ran into issues. I did something wrong in the first major town and couldn't move on. I looked up solutions for a few hrs and came to the conclusion that there was nothing I could do. If you do the wrong thing you're out of luck and cant move on. The game play and graphics are mediocre at best. Story was kinda engaging, but the fact that if you do one thing wrong, at least the thing I did wrong, you're royally in trouble. I ended up trading it in. Unless you look up everything you're supposed to do or have a strategy guide to refer to, if there even is one, I'd recommend passing on this game.
