Divinity: Original Sin Review
Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a free role-playing hybrid video game developed by Larian Studios and published and released by Larian Studios UK. The sequel to last year’s Divinity: Original Sin, it has been out for Microsoft Windows on Steam for Windows PC in October 2021, for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in August 2021, and for Nintendo Switch in September 2021. It is the follow-up to the hit RPG game Divinity: Spaceborne, another turn-based sci-fi RPG that Larian Entertainment developed and published. In terms of both genre and story, it borrows some points from both, but it adds a unique flair of its own. Here’s a Divinity: Original Sin 2 Game Review.
A few years after the events of the first game, the main protagonist of the second gets to go back in time and visit the scenes and events that were crucial to the first game, just before the events of Divinity: Original Sin 2 take place. The protagonist also gets to revisit some of the previous levels in order to get some new equipment and weapons for the action. This time travel system is an interesting one, allowing players to revisit levels in order to improve upon them or learn new strategies and tactics.
However, what really makes this type of game great is that there are countless items, abilities, and spells for you to use during your time travel mission. For example, during your journey, you’ll come across items that can boost your combat effectiveness in a variety of ways. For example, there are items that will make you stronger against enemies, there are items that will help you deal out more damage, etc. There are even some items that will actually turn you into an animal (like a frog or a snake) that can do some real damage to unsuspecting enemies.
In addition to using these items during your time travel mission, you can also acquire new ones as you progress through the game. This allows you to keep playing through the first game and gaining experience points in order to level up in Divinity: Original Sin 2. However, while playing through the first game you can also replay levels after finishing them to continue gaining experience points. So, playing through the game as much as possible is recommended if you want to be sure you level up quickly in Divinity: Original Sin 2.
One of the best features of this game is the user-friendly interface. This game is very easy to pick up on and doesn’t have many complicated menus and buttons that would frustrate a lot of potential gamers. Everything is pretty much laid out in an easy-to-understand manner, which allows you to smoothly enjoy playing Divinity: Original Sin 2. When you first start playing the game you’ll see a tutorial video that shows you all the controls and how to perform all of the different activities in the game. The tutorial video is shown while you play through the game so you get a sense of the game’s overall design. The controls are fairly simple to use and the game certainly feels smooth.
Another good feature of Divinity: Original Sin is the game’s huge world map. While the game does not offer as much content as other similar games, it still provides enough content to keep you busy for a few hours. I also really enjoyed playing the questing aspects of the game as well. These quests are not just another level within a level; they are quests you do throughout the entire game to gain experience and rewards. Some of these quests can lead to higher levels, which take some time to do but are well worth it as you learn more about the game.
Despite being a PC game, Divinity: Original Sin contains Xbox Live functionality, so you can also experience the game on a console. The controls are easy enough to master on either platform, though the bigger touchpads maybe a little too much for some. The graphics are very nice for an Xbox, though the framerate often dips during heavy action. It doesn’t affect playing the game too much and I recommend playing with a high-end graphics card or using a console-optimized frame rate.
Divinity: Original Sin is an excellent game, one that I thoroughly enjoyed playing. It has plenty of replayability, a challenging storyline, an interesting interface, lots of quests to complete, and many other features that make it enjoyable playing. If you like your turn-based RPGs with fantasy elements, then this one is definitely a winner. There are many other games out there like it that you might also want to try.
