Divinity: Original Sin
 – 

Best RPG since Shadows of Amn.

If you've been waiting for a deep discount sale on "Divinity: Original Sin," you may have noticed that it just doesn't seem to be happening—and the game's been out some time by now. Perhaps it's because whoever sets the prices knows that what they have here is worth asking—and paying—a little extra for. They're right. D:OS is not without its flaws (inventory management is dreadful, and even the battles you're meant to fight in the beginning can be damn hard until you get the hang of things), but it's an absolute beauty, lovingly written (nearly free of spelling mistakes, too), and allows such a level of interacting with the game world and everything in it that you could spend hours mucking around just a few buildings experimenting with what can be made by putting what together. It's a fantasy immersion fuss bucket's dream. Single caveat: If having to repair your gear in Diablo III was already a mind-numbing chore for you, Divinity's everything-is-interactive type of approach may strike you as mere tedium. But if you like to play RPG's like it's for real, this is your game.

My first Putt - Putt digital purchase. the game is awesome as i remember it. i only have one thing i wish they will add soon - the ability to change the language of the game. that will be even more awesome. also, this game comes with no steam key.

Too Bad

Incomprehesible interface. Cannot save games. Passwords from manual needed but no manual provided.

Played the original in 1982 - great game for its time. Sir Tech could have done better with this one.

Fatty Bear's Birthday Surprise

This game is amazing! humongous games are a real gem, and i remember playing them all countless times with all the discs i had. unfortunately, as they didn't work so well anymore, i thought i will never be able to play those awesome games again. i am so happy i was wrong. i just found out that the company started to release all their games in digital purchases. man, i was so happy. the only thing i can say i wish they will add sometime soon is the ability to change the language of the game. i know, that's kind of a nit - pick, but i remember playing those games in my own language, and i would much prefer to have that ability as well. but in the meantime, i don't have any particular problem with English - it's still awesome! i just wish they will add the option to choose other languages as well. Thank you humongous, a dozen million times.
Hanny.

Addictive!!

This is a great strategy game. I love every bit of it! I highly recommend it to those that like complex games with loads of decision making throughout the game.

RealS..IT!

This joke of a game is unworthy even of writing a review about it. The speed of rendering is inexplicably slow for today standards. Trying to look around with your mouse is like trying to fly a jet fighter in a drunken state. The "sensation of being there" is near to zero: it's more like "being in a postcard". The environments are static: just the ripples of water (if it's in your line of sight) and two or three birds flying (if they are). The game doesn't give you any feedback about what you're doing (that's pushing buttons and levers everywhere), so the need, desire or curiosity for doing something is null. The areas to explore are so small that you feel you are exploring in your bathroom. Believe me: my daily morning walks are far more intersting than playing this. Don't waste your time with it: life is too short.

Wasteland 2: Director's Cut

Wasteland 2

The good:
Maps are often rewarding to explore
Overall art style
Tactical round based combats
A lot of weapons and items
A polished first act
Overall Writing (even though the quality varies)
Interesting (while also over the top) Factions
Companions
A good use of choices & consequences (Telltale/Bioware take a note here)
A lot of inside jokes and fan service
Music from Mark Morgan (not as memorable as what he did for Fallout/Planescape though)
Radio transmission (especially during first act)
The bad:
The second act of the game still has a lot of oddities, glitches and bugs
Some skills seems forced for the sake of re-playability, and would have been better off combined/graded or as perks
Not be able to shoot other parts of the body besides headshots (thus no enemy slow down or force a weapon drop)
Your base team will never develop beyond their skill stats and your fantasy
Heavy reuse of character portraits
You cannot set own traps
You cannot sneak
...and the ugly:
Chance evaluation feels broken to me (from weapon jams to critical misses to ...well everything)
Heavy quest items which you have to drag along
Verdict:
For lovers of classic RPG and the setting i surely can recommend it. I backed it two years ago with a good sum of money and I don't regret it. Will it be remembered a classic 10 years from now? Probably not, but it will sure find it's fans...at least I'm one of them now.

On a sidenote:
Even though Brian Fargo makes fun of DLCs in the game, I wouldn't mind to explore more maps and side-stories with my team. The hub like system seems so predestined for such things. It's a missed opportunity to not give fans and in the end Fargo the chance to continue refine Wasteland 2. Since he could live off it for years.
