I see a lot of 'Pick Up Dragon Age' in response to this game. Personally, I couldn't DISAGREE more.
If you want a game requiring little thought and very little strategy then pick up Dragon Age. If you want to play a game where you actually have to think thoroughly thru your character and in-game decisions and not just run around the path of a linear 'RPG' then get Divinity II.
It's getting quite annoying hearing all this "it's too hard" whining, what happened to wanting to play a game with a challenge? where you actually feel like you earned something.
tl;dr pick this up if you're sick of the lazy and linear rpg's LIKE Dragon Age and actually want a challenge in a console game.
the big time gamers out there that can beat a game in 2 days havnt played a game like this. i think im pretty good at games and ive been playing it quite a bit and ive had this game for two weeks... by far the longest game. but not to mention a very fun one!

Looking at Divinity from afar you would not be too overly impressed, heck I even made some of my friends watch as I rotated the camera to show them the choppiest "look around" feature in the history of open world rpgs. However, after you take some time to get into the game, any fan of "walking around" games (as my wife calls them) will be pleasantly surprised at the actual quality of this game. If you like questing and looting, there is a lot to be enjoyed in this game, despite the lack of apparent horsepower under the hood. The graphics may not be the best, and the difficulty can be a little uneven, but the gameplay is a ton of fun, which is the most important thing. I had a great time with this game and I think anyone willing to ignore the crushing "expert" reviews and spend some time with this game will not regret it. Oh yeah, and turning into a dragon is A-Some!!
