I was wondering if anyone here has played Divinity II? I think it is one of the most underrated action RPGs of the last couple of years; I haven't come across anyone mentioning it here. I think there are a couple of reasons for this. When the first one (Ego Draconis), the engine and game play was lacking polish and the game just didn't run very well on many systems. However, if I have my story straight, when they made the sequel (Flames of Vengeance), they tweaked the engine quite a bit, as well as certain elements of the game play...
About a year ago they re-released the updated Eco Draconis and Flames of Vengeance together as Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga. I have only player part of the first installment, but it is getting better and better. At first it felt a bit dated and clunky (and the combat continues to be a bit repetitive and clunky), but once the game gets going, things really pick up in my opinion, and the clunkiness takes a backseat once you can do things like turn into a dragon at will and fly around freely
, etc... The story seems almost as good as any computer RPG I've played, and there is quite a bit of humor.
Long story short, if you enjoy RPGs on the PC and are getting tired of Dragon Age or Oblivion, then this is definitely worth a go.
And for those ready to make an impulse buy, it is 50% off for another hour and a half on Steam
