Divinity Original Sin: Enhanced Edition is a much lauded Role-Playing-Game that blends deep customization and humor with dynamic turn based combat. Either in online co-op, split-screen co-op on your TV, or even alone, take advantage of a classless RPG system to create your heroes and conquer the evils of Rivellon!
Embark upon a journey with up to three companions as you bend the very fabric of time, where what seems like the case of a simple murder unravels into hours of quests facing fiendish foes, magical polymorphous, and dastardly bosses. As a Source Hunter, master the elements and use the environment to your advantage in dynamic combats mixing weather and magic to explode, poison, electrify, freeze and burn your enemies.
Last year, Divinity: Original Sin was one of my favorite video games when it released. The new Enhanced Edition reminds me why, but it it not content to simply sit back on prior success. Meaningful changes were made in thousands of large and subtle ways, and the result is one of the best RPG experiences that can be found on either PC or console.
Divinity Original Sin Enhanced Edition offers a sublime RPG experience to our consoles. The universe is even more immersive thanks to the many new, clearer interface and intelligent gameplay mechanics. The combat system is also very ingenious. A must have if you like the genre.
If you want the RPG with the most skills, the most stats to consider, and a world that constantly makes meaningful use of every line on your character sheet, there’s nothing else quite like Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition.
Shocked at how great this is. This is how a real RPG should be and I’m very glad to see that some game companies haven’t tossed away the roots of the genre in favor of simplicity (Fallout 4…). Dialogue choices are dynamic, many quests have different branches and many (even main story quests) have alternative outcomes that require a new play through. Difficulty is reminiscent of old-school RPGs, and planning and strategist is key to winning, even in normal. If you’re complaining about how most games developed these days are going easy mode to cater to more casual players, this game is for you. Not only is it difficult, but every fight is rewarding, every level gained is fun to get, and the customization/builds are great. I wholly enjoyed the true split-screen co-op couch experience and it worked perfectly. I haven’t seen games that have done such great couch co-op in a while. Voice acting, 99% of the game is voice acted, and voice acted WELL, which brings the game more to life.
One tip though: Save A LOT. Abuse Quick save after every battle, every 5 minutes, etc. You’ll need to get into the habit of this. This game exemplifies personal freedom, which is a double-edged sword. It WILL let you aggro every NPC possible (even your companions, who will leave you permanently if you piss them off too much) and it also WILL allow you to die even in unintentional circumstances (such as you accidentally triggering a trap that activates a poisonous gas or lava that wipes your party). You’ll need to make sure you quick-save a lot in order to reload after you screw up (I screwed up a **** of times…). Also, this game may crash randomly from time to time, I experienced a crash every 10 or so hours, so quick saves will help prevent that.
I recommend you get this game if you are nostalgic of traditional RPG elements and if you were disappointed in Fallout 4’s freedom and are looking for something similar to fallout 3.
