Divinity: Original Sin 2 Reviews
A CRPG of unparalleled breadth and dynamism, Original Sin 2 is Larian's masterpiece.
Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a sprawling, inventive adventure and one of the best RPGs ever made.
Divinity: Original Sin 2 will be remembered as one of the greats.
One of the best computer role-playing games ever, with such a level of complexity and flexibility it's difficult to believe it exists, let alone that it could ever be bettered.
A majestic offering that stands tall among the greatest PC RPGs of all time
Join the ranks of the gods in Divinity: Original Sin II, an RPG so fantastic that it may well have been divinely inspired.
A lot of different things can happen in Divinity: Original Sin 2; it's an RPG that is overwhelmingly about planning ahead yet still being completely taken by surprise.
It is, on so many levels, an incredible achievement, packed with enough heart, intelligence, and confidence to sustain ten lesser games. It’s a testament to its form, even as it’s held back by it in places. It still feels premature to declare Original Sin 2 an all-time classic, as some have, but I imagine plenty of future games will borrow ideas from it. It’ll be a crying shame if they don’t.
Divinity: Original Sin 2 is simply the pinnacle of the CRPG genre. It offers a campaign with memorable characters, interesting role-playing options, and excellent systemic combat. The environments are beautiful and the soundtrack is solid. That alone would put it at the top of the heap, but then Larian added offline and online coop, a PVP arena mode, and Game Master mode, the greatest throwback to the Dungeons & Dragons pen-and-paper games that underpin the entire genre. I might have small issues here and there, but Divinity: Original Sin 2 is one of the best in a strong year for gaming.
Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a perfect example of how to create a sequel. It took what the first game did well and ramped it up while fixing many of the original's annoyances. The freedom here is unlike anything I have come across in a long time, and the game is better for it. There are certainly some things that still don't feel quite right, in addition to various bugs, but this is easily one of the best RPGs of modern times.
Divinity: Original Sin 2 is the strongest CRPG in decades, with a fascinating plot that enthrals, despite taking a while to get going and being hard as nails at times. It's the little adventures that flesh out the world and so much of it can be missed at first glance because you didn't have the right skill or failed a persuasion check. Massive in scope and jam packed with features that includes a GM mode that shows a surprising amount of customisation with great ease, Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a bumper package.
Larian Studios has created a true masterpiece and a game that challenges other great titles for the crown of the RPG genre. Divinity: Original Sin II is everything that a role game should aim for.

Fantastic writing and voice acting abound in the deep, fantastical world of Divinity: Original Sin 2. Despite some massive difficulty spikes, its gameplay is incredibly rewarding and great fun.
Larian Studios' sequel successfully walks the thin line separating empowering choices and confusing chaos
From its origin stories to its brief emergent narratives, few games let you take part in better tales than this one.
No game has captured the nuance of pen-and-paper RPG quite like Divinity: Original Sin 2. Every moment is filled with meaningful choice with real consequences, and every character has a story to tell. In an RPG landscape where dialogue options are dumbed down, and quests have become package delivery to a specific map coordinate, Divinity: Original Sin 2 stands out as one of the best RPGs I've played in a decade...maybe even longer than that.
Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a polished, well-designed RPG, and through its phenomenal mechanics, astounding art, sound design and fantastic writing, it is sure to revolutionize the modern RPG genre.
