Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Definitive Edition Reviews
Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition is a new way to play one of the absolute best RPGs in years. And whether you're diving back in on PC, or booting it up on the console for the first time, it's flexibility, personality, and charm make for an amazing adventure.
One of the best computer role-playing games ever made works just as well on consoles, with a staggering level of complexity and flexibility but still a very accessible sense of fun.
Divinity: Original Sin II Definitive Edition manages to make an already fantastic RPG even better.
One of the greatest classic RPG of the generation. Story, setting and freedom of action seems uparalleled, although controls and menu navigation for consoles version still feel a bit rough.

Divinity Original Sin II: Definitive Edition is almost certainly the finest RPG experience on the current generation of consoles. The sheer range and depth of the combat coupled with the interesting and well written dialogue and story produces a vast and rewarding experience that continually surprises and delights. Ironically, the only real negative aspect is that the sheer size of the game is overwhelming and many will not see it through to the end.
An excellent port of a true masterpiece. The only real drawback is the control system: the dualshock isn't the most streamlined mean for taming an isometric RPG.

One of the best PC RPGs of recent years loses a little of its shine on console, but remains a fantastic experience throughout.
Divinity Original Sin 2 is the same great RPG that fans of the original remember, just made better.
Blitworks has done a fantastic job porting Divinity: Original Sin 2 to Switch, running great for the most part,including local wireless and an interface that has been scaled well.
If you can't play on PC, Divinity: Original Sin 2 on Switch is a perfectly fine way to play. It has its issues and quirks that make it more of a companion to the PC version, but being able to play wherever you want makes up for it.
With stellar writing, challenging combat, a compelling central quest, and dozens of worthwhile side activities, Divinity: Original Sin II is one of the finest role-playing games available on PlayStation 4. There's the occasional small issue and some scant technical hiccups – particularly when playing online – but these are minor quibbles. This is a dense, engrossing adventure, packed to the hilt with stories worth hearing, conflicts you'll want to resolve, and secret treasures just begging to be discovered.
There are few RPGs I'd dare to call essential, but Divinity: Original Sin 2 stands out among all others as deserving of that accolade. It's undoubtedly one of the best tactical and role-playing experiences you'll ever have on any platform.
The control system is less comfortable and the framerate not so stable, but Divinity: Original Sin 2 remains an excellent RPG also on console, with several improvements to the pure contents.

I can go on and on about how great Original Sin II is and honestly, I'd love to, but I think I have said what needs to be said here.
A constantly evolving game that will keep you occupied for hours and months on end. With fantastic storytelling and engaging combat there is a lot to love about Divinity Original Sin II.

Original Sin 2 shakes your hand a little too hard when you first meet. It needs to relax until you get to know it better. It's endlessly surprising, with characters that lose their stiffness over time, in dialogues and battle logs that piece together a dangerous, thoughtful world. It's tough. But the reward is that you get tougher, too. It still needs to clean up some of its tactical sloppiness, though. Having a ton of options in battle is only good if its rules are fair and make sense.
Outstanding role-playing game that will stay in your memory for a long time due to its choices, possibilities and many stories.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition may be the best representation of a CRPG on consoles to date, and is by far one of the best role-playing experiences currently available on any platform. Larian have outdone themselves yet again, and their love shines through every outmatched encounter, every failed persuasion, and every dead Magister.
At the end of it all, Divinity: Original Sin 2 – Definitive Edition is still the RPG dream it has been since its release.
