Divinity Original Sin 2 isn’t just an improvement over its already massive and impressive predecessor, it also happens to be one of the finest RPG with an intricately crafted massive and rich open world. With an impressive Metacritic score of 94, it has successfully (and rightly) earned titles such as The Best RPG Ever. Check out a few reviews mentioned to below to wrap it up.
There’s such a wide range of influences visible in Larian’s work. Ultima and XCOM are the obvious ones, but there are other moments, such as when you’re breaking into a house or searching for a hidden hatch to the basement, that the game suddenly feels more like Thief or Dishonored. The game foremost in my mind while playing, however, was The Witcher 3.
From lonely farmhouses through pitched battles with gods in far-flung dimensions, Divinity: Original Sin II is one of the most captivating role-playing games ever made. It’s immaculately conceived and emotion-wrought fantasy world, topped by brilliant tactical combat, make it one of the finest games of the year thus far, and it has to be regarded as an instant classic in the pantheon of RPG greats.
Divinity: Original Sin 2 may have been designed in the spirit of decades-old RPGs like Baldur’s Gate 2, but that legacy serves only as a foundation for the expansive game Larian has built on top of it. Few other RPGs allow such a wide range of flexibility while also supporting rewarding combat and a powerful story, all in a world that feels alive in the way it reacts to you and goes about its business without you
Divinity: Original Sin 2 is one of the greatest PC RPGs of all time, and Larian’s continued dedication to creating incredible freeform adventures inspired by tabletop lineage is inspiring and commendable. A few bugs and frustrating encounters are small prices to pay for a lavish ensemble of the genre’s best and a one-of-a-kind experience.
